Should I Spend Donuts on the Evil Shopkeeper Bundle?

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 Evil Shopkeeper Bundle to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding any of these evil combos to your town…

Character: Evil Shopkeeper
 Based on what you currently have in your Springfield.  No items yields full bundle, 1 item yields 2 pc bundle, and all items yields Shop Keeper Only.  There is no way to just get the Shop Keeper as a Stand Alone unless you have all of the other items. 
House of Evil, Talking Krusty Doll and Evil Shopkeeper: 145 Donuts
Talking Krusty Doll & Evil Shopkeeper: 135 Donuts
House of Evil & Evil Shopkeeper: 145 Donuts
Evil Shopkeeper Stand-Alone: 75 Donuts

The rest of this post will be about the Evil Shopkeeper ONLY.  The House of Evil & Evil Krusty are returning characters.  You can find more info about them here: House of Evil & Talking Krusty Doll

Yes, Talking Krusty Doll is an NPC. 145 donuts for Shopkeeper + House of Evil is a bit pricey IMO.  As is 135 for Talking Krusty +Shopkeeper. But I do think 145 for all 3 items is a fair price. Just my 2 cents for the full bundles….

Leaves stores November 1st

-Full character with full set of tasks
-Will use the House of Evil
-Comes with a questline
-Fun outside/visual tasks

-Does not help with the event
-A bit on the pricey side for a stand alone character

Final Thought
Stand-alone version, an ok buy.  Not a great buy (price), but there are worse out there.  If you have the donuts and you’re looking for a character grab this one.  (but I’d go with the combos (Angelica, Raymondo over this one…if you can only pick one or the other)

This one is hard for me to get behind for the freemium player.  Bit pricey for a stand-alone

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 pick him 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 his tasks…

Evil Shopkeeper’s Permanent Tasks:

Task Length  Earns Location
Refresh Froyo Curse 1hr $105, 26xp House of Evil
Perform a Dubious Act 4hrs $260, 70xp Outside/Visual

Promote Cursed Wares 8hrs $420, 105xp Outside/Visual
Break Slushie Curse 24hrs $1,000, 225xp Kwik E Mart

  1. You can now get the Shopkeeper as a standalone character without the Krusty Doll and House of Evil


  2. Wasn’t interested before but now its back for end of event i m tempted would complete a character set.. do I get anything for completing it so is it worth it. I would prob need the bundle 145 donuts but did see just the shopkeeper 75 in my store!.so I’m not sure if should get jus him and then try a mystery box with leftover.. Someone help me decide!


  3. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on surcharge meaning. Regards


  4. Finally, my House of Evil will have someone to take care of it now.


  5. I passed but if EA brings back Evil Shop Keeper at discount? I’d get this Character just to watch him “chase the dragon” 😅
