Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Fall has arrived and there’s a haze over our Springfield’s, that can only mean one thing….it’s Halloween in our pocket-sized towns! This year EA’s thrown a little magic into the mix, with an Angelica Button theme invading our towns. An all new event means loads of new premium items in our stores just tempting us to drop those donuts while they’re hot!
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 Fantastical Beastarium to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this take on the Exotic Zoo to your town…
Building/Decoration: Fantastical Beastarium
Donut Cost: 75 Donuts
Earns: 100 /4hrs (likely will earn cash when event is over
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +10
Other Info: Can be placed on Grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
Leaves stores November 14th
-Comes with some dialogue.
-Animated when in use. Flag waves, bunny runs around outside of it
-Earns extra event currency every 4hrs
-Wiggum has a permanent 4hr task there (Clean the Esquilax Cage)
-Pricey for just a “building”
-Design is more tent like than a building itself, could be hard to fit into Springfield
Meh. It’s not critical to complete the event, you’ll be successful in wand collecting with or without it, but if you like it grab it.
Pass. Not necessary for the event and pretty expensive for just a building. Save your donuts for character/building combos.
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’ll likely be passing. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now). Also, this is one of those items that helps with the event. So if you’re picking it up grab it sooner rather than later, so it can help you the most. So if you’re planning on picking it up I’d do so by this weekend. (but I still think you should skip it…)
Here’s a look at the dialogue it comes with…
Homer: Kidnap the beasts?! We can’t take on those beasts without magic!
Moe: We could partner up and take the Exotic Zoo to the next level. Whaddya say Chief?
Wiggum: What you are suggesting is extremely illegal…and I’m in! As head member of the Fantasical Beastarium, I’m pretty nifty at handling rare and mystical beasts. That includes the last Esquilax…and the last Ralphie.
Make Wiggum Clean Esquilax Cage- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Wiggum: Ah, the Esquilax. A dog with the head of a rabbit. And the body of a rabbit. Watch your backs, “Turner and Hooch”! Our buddy-cop adventures begin today!
