Should I Spend Donuts on the Wickerman Bundle or the Camping Tent?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Hope you’ve got your dancing shoes on and your cell phones ready to light up the night because Homerpalooza has arrived in Springfield!  That’s right the pop fest has begun!  Our stores are now jam-packed with premium items just tempting us to drop our sprinkles on!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to grab everything in sight 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 Wickerman Bundle or the Camping Tent 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 24th

Item: Wickerman Bundle
Includes: Wickerman, 2 Small Pagan Tents, 2 Large Pagan Tents, 4 Carnival Banners & 2 Braziers)
Cost:
 100 Donuts
Earns: 
Nothing
What Does It Do?: 
Decorations, primarily nothing.  Wickerman does catch on fire when tapped. 
My Opinion On It Now: 
If you’re thinking about buying this, STOP.  Take your finger off the button and slowly walk away.  This is a complete and total waste of donuts. DO NOT BUY IT!

Leaves stores August 26th

Item: Camping Tent
Cost:
20 Donuts
Earns: 
.75% bonus on all cash and XP
What Does It Do?: 
It’s a tent.  Just a decoration, not much else.
Previous Post: Camping Tent
My Opinion On It Now:
 It was originally free, during Most Dangerous Game 2016.  Not awful if you have a camping area for it.  It’s 20 donuts (and offers a bonus %, not great but something) if you like it grab it, otherwise, save those donuts for something better.

  3. I haven’t been offered any of this…they must all be unique items.

  5. I got the wikerman during the ding dong diddly crap Pagan event. Which also was my first Christmas event in the game. The snow was nice but felt ripped off not getting the Christmas experience. Seen evidence of Christmas past events in neighbouring towns. Hoping to see a true Christmas this year!

    That being said wikerman/burningman looks good in the rock n roll venue.

    You weren’t bias at all Alissa? Since the Pagan/ wickerman event stole Christmas from you too? 😋

  6. Glad I waited for this SIB almost bought the wickerman bundle but got suspicious that the in game info didn’t mention a bonus % or an income amount….Because there Are None! I’m a completest but I’m not wasting sprinkles on something that adds no value to my Springfield … Pass on that, but I did pick up the tent to go with my snakelog and a campfire.

  7. Didn’t even know these were offered due to having them already.

    • Me too. Good idea I read here: wickerman in rock area (the cannon in pop with Party Posse performing: OK as well).
      The burning wickerman feels like some crossover between Alice Cooper and Rammstein (both seen at Wacken before :-D)

  8. It is so funny that THIS bundle is being offered. I Put MY Wickerman from the Pagan Christmas Event on my Rock stage grounds on the first day. Burning Homerpalooza!!!!! 🙂

    • lol! My previously-earned Wickerman is between the Rock & Pop Stages on my festival grounds! As is the Wickergoat I couldn’t resist purchasing back then! 😊

      Already had the tent (& camper/RV) out, and had already moved it to the “parking area” (read: dirt lot) outside of the festival. 😉

    • That is an excellent idea!! I’d steal it if it wouldn’t create a hole in my Wiccan block

  9. This is probably pretty obvious: but you aren’t offered the applicable bundle if you already have the tent and/or the wickerman. Now, I just need to figure out where in my inventory that tent went since I don’t see it anywhere in my Springfield… so that I can find out if the pre-existing version of it gets the bonus.

    (There *really* needs to be a better way to search through the inventory!)

    • Here’s one option you can do if you have premium characters:
      Rock Stage (Rock only): Peter, Freddy, Shredder, Nick
      Simpsons House (Rock only): Dr Hibbert, Apu
      Pop Stage (Pop only): Bart, Milhouse, Ralph, Nelson
      Springfield Elementary (Pop only): Leon K, Rockstar Maggie
      Moe’s and KEM (both Rock): Lisa, Bleeding Gums, Weird Al, Rev Lovejoy, Homer, or Rockin’ Otto
      Moe’s and KEM (one Rock & one Pop): Weird Al, Rev Lovejoy, Homer, or Rockin’ Otto on Rock and Lisa or Bleeding Gums on Pop
      Moe’s and KEM (both Pop): Lisa, Bleeding Gums, and eventually Alaska Nebraska, baby Maggie and Pop Weird Al

      If you only have freemium players, you will have empty venues. Here’s what I would do:

      Scenario A – Moe’s and KEM (both Rock)
      Moe’s and KEM (both Rock): Lisa, Weird Al, Rev Lovejoy, Homer
      Rock Stage (Rock only): Peter, Nick, Dr Hibbert, Apu
      Simpsons House (Rock only): empty
      Pop Stage (Pop only): Bart, Milhouse, Ralph, Nelson
      Springfield Elementary (Pop only): empty – eventually Alaska Nebraska

      Scenario B – Moe’s and KEM (one Rock & one Pop) if Pop Weird Al unlocked
      Moe’s and KEM (one Rock & one Pop): Rev Lovejoy and Homer at Rock; Lisa and Pop Weird Al at Pop
      Rock Stage (Rock only): Peter, Nick, Dr Hibbert, Apu
      Simpsons House (Rock only): empty
      Pop Stage (Pop only): Bart, Milhouse, Ralph, Nelson
      Springfield Elementary (Pop only): empty – eventually Alaska Nebraska

      Scenario C – Moe’s and KEM (one Rock & one Pop) if Pop Weird Al not available
      Moe’s and KEM (one Rock & one Pop): Rev Lovejoy and Homer at Rock; Lisa and Bart at Pop
      Rock Stage (Rock only): Peter, Nick, Dr. Hibbert, Apu
      Simpsons House (Rock only): Rock Weird Al alone
      Pop Stage (Pop only): Nelson alone – eventually with Alaska Nebraska
      Springfield Elementary (Pop only): Milhouse and Ralph

      Scenario D – Moe’s and KEM (both Pop)
      Moe’s and KEM (both Pop): Bart, Milhouse, Ralph, Nelson
      Rock Stage (Rock only): Peter, Nick, Dr. Hibbert, Apu
      Simpsons House (Rock only): Rev Lovejoy, Homer
      Pop Stage (Pop only): empty – eventually Alaska Nebraska
      Springfield Elementary (Pop only): Lisa and Weird Al Pop if available at Pop
