Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well time to live life in the fast lane because we’ve got ourselves a Pin Pals Bowling Mini Event in Springfield! That’s right our pocket-sized Springfield’s have gone to the gutter….the bowling gutter that is…as we set em up to knock em down with this Bowling event!
Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome because it’ll be gone soon. But don’t sweat it! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add Jacques and Fiesta Terrace to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this French Fop to your town…
Building/Decoration: Fiesta Terrace
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Bonus %: 4% on all cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter: Indolence +10
Other Info: Fiesta Terrace can be placed on Pavement, Pier, Boardwalk and dirt…in addition to the usual grass. Jacques will not unlock in the store for you until you unlock the Pin Pal Bowling Alley.
Leaves stores May 23rd
-Frequently requested character
-Rare building that earns income AND a bonus %
-Bonus percent (4%) is a great payout, considering it’s a character/building combo
-A couple of funny outdoor tasks
-Will use Fiesta Terrace for his 1hr task, which will animate the building
-Pricey for a one off character/building combo. (although the bonus % helps)
-Will not help with the Pin Pals Event, does not earn bowling shoes.
So I know most premium players aren’t even waiting for my opinion with this one, you’ve already picked him up. It’s a nostalgic character, and he’s been requested for awhile. The downside is he’s not voiced and he’s a bit pricey. But I like this combo, despite the price tag. And I REALLY like that Fiesta Terrace earns a bonus %, in addition to income. Not a bad premium pickup.
I would buy Jacques over the Pin Pals skins, in a heartbeat. But it is still a pricey character/building combo, especially when it doesn’t help with the event. I’d say if you’ve been wanting Jacques pick him up, but he’s certainly not a must buy. If you’re on the fence, I’d pass and save your donuts for something better.
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as I premium player I can tell you I’ve picked him up (almost immediately). But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before he leaves our games for good (or for now).
Here’s a look at his tasks…
