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 the Elf Hotel to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Elfish spot to your town…
Building/Decoration: Elf Hotel
Donut Cost: 50 Donuts
Earns: $200, 22xp/8hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Indolence +10
Other Info: Can be placed on Grass|pavement|boardwalk|dirt|pier

-Comes with dialogue and a short questline
-Animated when in use, the door opens and “magic dust” blows out. Also, it’s always animated in the water…always running out front.
-CBG has a permanent 4hr task there, to Overpay for a Novelty Stay (Earns $260, 70cp)
-Fun, unique looking building for Springfield.
-No benefit for the event
-It’s just a building (one with a premium task for a character, but still just a building)
Premium or Freemium:
It’s not bad. Price is ok, comes with a premium 4hr task for a freemium character (handy for many of you who use the 4hr cycles) and it has a fun look. If you like it, get it. Otherwise, pass.
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’ll probably be picking it up. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).
Here’s a look at the questline…
No Shirt, No Shoes, No Dwarves
CBG: A themed hotel? For the role player with expendable income, the website suggests a three-night all-inclusive package. Well, one can’t roleplay an impoverish tavern without paying a pretty penny. I’ll collect tavern dregs and Starwood Points at the same time.
Make Comic Book Guy Overpay for an immersive Experience- 4hrs, Earns $260, 70xp
