Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Chest of Sacred Artifacts, Treasure Chest or Pirate Bundle?

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 Egyptian Era and we’ve got Pharaohs, Pyramids & of course other Egyptian 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 the Chest of Sacred Artifacts, Treasure Chest or Pirate Bundle to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

  1. Wow! 🤔

    EA comes off as desperate offering Premium purchases on former Freemiums / Craftables (how disappointing!)

    • I am glad EA reissues characters, buildings,… In my freemium time I missed out a lot of characters due to lack of donut. Now as a farmium I can purchase all the thing I want.

  2. How on earth does anyone ever save $20,000,000 for the dam? Wouldn’t it take months and months?

    • Seriously. I play incessantly but this seems like it will take forever.

      • It took me more than two years to earn my first million. Nowadays I get that amount within eight hours. (Playing TSTO since the fall of 2012)
        My advice is: “Patience young grasshopper, patience!”

    • Long time players have 20 million 💵💰in their back pocket and are able to create that amount within a few days.
      One of my neighborenos claims to have 2 BILLION (which is the maximum amount you can gather)

  3. I didn’t buy the treasure chests originally, but I picked up several this time. Overpricedo but I like them. No percentage increase, but it’s additional income and xp.

  4. I already got a set of the two chests probably during Stonecutters event. I just bought another set to put at my pirates area. Somehow I really like a treasure chest. During my childhood, I have one inside my aquarium and it will open and close as the bubbles pops out

  5. Will there be a new themed mystery box coming tomorrow?

  6. Unrelated question to this event!! But I had a small update with Cecil T. and he was talking about the Springfield Dam. I’ve been pumping cash into it but nothings happened yet…did you guys do a section on it? I’d love more info if possible. Thanks!

  7. I want the explosives for Herman and the stocks for depair heights

  8. The very short verstond of this SIB is MEEEEEEHHHHH

  9. For me, the shipwreck alone would be worth the 🍩 price.
    I’m really rather happy with my pirate section 😁

  10. T tree is on sale for 5 doughnuts…. don’t remember seeing a recent post on it. is it as good a deal as it seems?

    • Any time you can increase your bonus % for 5 doughnuts I say go for it. The weird thing is if you look in the regular store items it sells for the regular amount.

    • If you buy, say, 6, that’d put your bonus percent at 3% for 30 donuts. Amazing deal for the T tree. I bought one and am considering more.

    • You have to have 15 donuts to get one, but get 10 donuts back. So if you buy 10 for total 150 donuts, you get 100 donuts back and get 5% bonus. I don’t have 150 donuts, but am buying one every time I scrounge together 15 donuts… Might let loose of my game cash to buy rat trap delivery trucks (in keeping with the theme) to get more than I can harvest. I hope the deal holds until the end of the event, they haven’t put time limits on them.

    • Yes, it is that good of a deal.

      Besides a great deal for bonus-percentage, the T-tree has excellent design potential since you can put them end-to-end and create a wall-like effect. It looks great lining a path in Springfield Heights.

      • Two rows line my Springfield Beach seperating the regular SF from SP.

      • I usually average better return on that by buying Mystery Boxes. Hint – every time I score a Channel 6 news van the following box *always* seems to give 10 or 30 bonuts.

    • WOW! 1% for 5 Donuts … I’m in KEM and mystery boxes but the design potential of billboards and news vans is rather limited… I will wait 3 hours to see what’s in the new vault and THEN t-trees 😉

    • Lenroy Jenkins

      I tend to agree that it’s worth it. Basically 1.0% = 10 donuts. I keep asking the same question periodically across the forums and I know Sandrashill believes “Buying a set of 25 mystery boxes will still earn a better donuts-to-% ratio. But for a single item, then, yes – I don’t thing there’s anything better than this.”

    • I bought a bunch to make a fence around my pirate area 🙂
