Wondering if you should add Tailgate, Garbage Can Pack, Wavy-Arm God or Elder Blimp 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…


Leaves stores August 15th

Item: Tailgate
200 Donuts, 100 Donut Rebate, NET 100 Donuts
4% bonus on all cash and XP
What Does It Do?: 
Tailgate questline & Tailgaters come to Springfield, fun item
Previous Post: Should I Buy
My Opinion On It Now:
100 donuts is a better price for this item, it’s fun.  But I’m still meh on buying it myself.  4% for 100 donuts isn’t that great (you can buy two Jet Engine Bikes for less and same bonus %).  If you really like it and you’ve wanted it, grab it.  Otherwise pass.

  1. I’m envious, my sports area is completely surrounded, no double duty for me. But I do love how well Otto’s bus and the Reindeer Krusty Burger truck go with the Tailgate party to add festival authenticity to the parking lot area.

  2. Lol – just save your Donuts / Bonuts for Halloween 2017 – unless you want the Tailgate / Tailgaters (Elder Blimp was a prior Earned Prize – not fooling me EA!) 🐖💨

  3. Can you believe that I’m an American, but I’ve never been to a tailgate in my life? I do love that decoration, though…got it last time they offered it because I had begun envying it when I saw it in my friendvilles.

  4. Got the tailgate. No regrets!

  5. I got the tailgate a while ago. I placed it in the sport section of the town and I like that I got put all misc. items around it.

  6. Love the tailgate.

  7. Ever since the update today I cannot open the app. Is anyone else having problems?

  8. I have had the tailgate for a while now, but for some reason it will not advance the second upgrade. The last task it gave me was to send my barflies to the tailgate, and it says 4/4 Done! But wont move on to the next task. What am I to do?

    • There is an upgrade symbol ( like with SH buildings) that hovers over the tailgate when you have finished sending barflies to the tailgate. Hopefully this works for you!

  9. My tailgate is still locked on level 2 even though level 3 is complete 4/4. It’s been like that since I can remember and I could never found a fix. Storing and placing it back didn’t work

  10. The update today didnt do anything, right?

  11. I got tailgate for 100. I’ve wanted it for a long time. And I like the crowds we can buy for the event so I felt like adding more crowds. It’s not a super deal but it’s not terrible and other than BGM not much has caught my eye for purchase this event so far.

    I was sooo disappointed when I missed wavy-arms orginally so I squealed with delight when I saw it was available again lol. I hated to spend that many donuts but I just had to have it lol! Thanks so much for everything you guys do and happy anniversary…you all make this game much more enjoyable!! Have a lovely day!! : )

    • I have a whole Chthulu theme park in my Springfield but didn’t do the wavy arms, getting a couple for my rock stage. Wave your arms in the air if you just don’t care!

  13. I keep reading about The Rocket Bike. Did EA remove this from the store. I don’t see it anywhere.

  14. not a fan of spending donuts on garbage cans with no bonus, but I much prefer the overflowing steel can to any other one in the game. been waiting for it to return, so i may buy more of these packs than I arguably should….

  15. The fact that they are asking donuts for those garbage cans is laughable. That’s a gamecash item if I ever saw one. Total pass.

  16. I was happy to get the tailgate, especially with a rebate. I think it goes well in my sports area.

  17. I got the tailgate. I’ve got it in my parking lot that leads to my rock stage. Luckily for me I have a sports area across the street, so it can pull double duty. It would be nice if I could toggle between the upgrades as I liked the first stage better (it wasn’t so sports specific). Oh well, it’s still fun.
