Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Time to grab toast as we travel back…wayyyy back…in time with Homer in the all new TTT (Time Travel Toaster) event! Homer’s taken us back to the Prehistoric Era and we’ve got Dinosaurs, Cavemen & of course other Prehistoric items in our Springfield just tempting us with those sprinkles!
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 Hollis Hurlbut and the Springfield Historical Society to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this alternative facts historian to your town…
Character: Hollis Hurlbut
Building/Decoration: Springfield Historical Society
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Earns: 270, 15xp/4hrs, also 1,445 when placed
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +200
Other Info: Can be placed on the Grass/Dirt/Pavement/Boardwalk/Pier or Beach. You’ll earn the when you place the Building.
Leaves stores July 5th
-Building earns more crafting currency every 4hrs, could come in handy if you feel you want a lot of the craftable items
-Unique character for Springfield and comes with his own questline
-Funny outdoor tasks
-150 donuts for a one off character/building combo is a little pricey IMO (although I know many of you will point out to me that this seems to be the new price…still pricey IMO)
-Hollis Hurlbut does not do anything to help with the event, no Shovels, No Fossils nothing. The building earns the currency but he does nothing..
While I feel 150 donuts is pricey for a Character/Building Combo that’s not a regular part of the show…I am a fan of this one. I like that the building helps with crafting and I like that it’s a new character for Springfield. So if you’re a fan of the combo pick it up…it’s still cheaper than Tatum…
Freemium players, if you feel like you’ll fall behind on crafting currency..and you think you’ll be able to clear this every 4hrs 4-5 times/day…you may want to pick this up. It’s nice that it helps with crafting (which many players struggle with) and comes with a character.
However, if you don’t usually have issues with crafting I’d pass on this combo and save your donuts for one of the vault character/building combos. More beloved in Springfield and at a lower price…
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 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). And this is one of those items that helps with the event, so the sooner you pick it up the better (if you’re planning to).
Here’s a look at his tasks…
