Should I Spend Donuts on CONRAD and Quinn?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s the holiday season! Here in America we’re gearing up for Thanksgiving…the one holiday that stands between us and Christmas….so naturally, the Simpsons have to celebrate!  While I think it would have been awesome to get a confetti-shooting Homer balloon from last Sunday’s episode, this mini event is fun too!  And as always, an all-new event (of any size) 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 CONRAD and Quinn to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this App Hacking Duo to your town…

Character: Quinn Hopper
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Size: 1×2
Earns: 5% Bonus on all cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +250
Other Info: 
Can be placed on grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt

Leaves stores November 27th

-Helps to earn additional event currency for Thanksgiving Event (Quinn earns 15 )
-CONRAD has a fantastic bonus %
-Quinn uses CONRAD for a task, they interact with each other

-Not voiced
-One-off character(s)
-CONRAD seems like he could be a little more.  Perhaps a floating NPC (like Mr. Sparkley)…at least for 1 task it’d be nice to see him pop out of the screen

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
This is the big premium combo for this mini event.  You get a new character + decoration with a nice bonus %, everything included is fair for the price.  The only question you have to ask yourself is….is the character worth it to me?  It’s a one-off character, not overwhelmingly memorable…so is this combo worth the 150 donuts to you?  If so grab it, if not 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 can tell you I’ve already picked her up.   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.

Here’s a look at her tasks…

Task Length Earns Location

  1. Quinn and CONRAD

    If you don’t have all the Springfield Characters needed to earn Turkey Badges? If you don’t want to use Characters already in use crafting Monorail Tracks for Bonuts? If you just want to complete the Thanksgiving Mini-Event quickly? This is for you !👍

    The rest? Save your sprinkles (this Combo will be back at Discount)!🤣


  2. I snapped her right up. I am always trying to increase my xp bonus, and those offerings don’t seem to come up much anymore.

    I’ve only just realised Quinn is a she… Thought she was a bloke with long hair… Love the game by the way but not watched an episode for the best part of 15 years


    • That’s to bad…there have been many really good episodes over the past 15 years. Are you in the U.S.? If so, and if you have a Roku or other streaming device like that, you can get the FXNow app and be able to access every episode of The Simpsons ever, with little or no commercials!

    • Quinn looks like she would enjoy a beverage and the company at the She-She lounge, I’m guessing the reason she doesnt have a task there is no free wi-fi (just wifey)


  4. The way I looked at it was that a 5% bonus should cost 100 donuts (40 donuts per 2% being the norm) so the character costs 50 donuts on balance. I snapped him up on his basis!! Sorry, Alissa, I didn’t even wait for your Should I Buy.


  5. Im a freemium/farmium player. I donut farm for 72 hours approx every 2.50 months …… Sooooo I have the bonuts to purchase Quinn & Conrad, but I will not because

    a) Im sure she’ll be offered for a rebate or in a mystery box within the next 12 months (She’s not exactly a highly requested or coveted character)

    b) Im saving my bonuts for Black Friday deals (There are some amazing rebates coming up on characters and other stuff, and those rebate characters would more than satisfy my longing for new TSTO characters & quests for months) ….. I hope this remark is not considered a spoiler because Alissa herself said she will post about Black Friday deals as they get near

    c) You dont really need Quinn to finish the Thanksgiving event …… Id rather spend my bonuts on a character that will help me during the December/January holiday event that will last for weeks (and even that premium purchase is optional)

    d) I dont really see Quinn helping in any other event anytime soon

    e) If someone covets the 5% bonus , there are regular items in the store that can get them 5% and they would cost less than Quinn

    Just my thoughts : ) ……… Waiting for Black Friday & holiday event now!!!!

  6. Love computer stuff so gave in. Now am finally low on donuts. May have to pass on Black Friday deals since my bonus percentage only allows for slow farming.


    • Have you tried the QuickThoughts app? It’s a totally legit app that lets you take real market research surveys to earn Amazon/Google Play/iTunes gift cards (depending on the OS of the device you install it on). Before I became a real farmer, that’s how I funded most of my TSTO purchases….I’ve earned well over $100 from them.

      If you start now, you may be able to earn enough to get at least one $10 gift card by next Friday, depending on your demographics and the things you do and buy.


  7. A job at My First Tattoo. Great bonus. Great buy. I like these one off characters. Makes my town feel more like a city. I like the hustle and bustle. Off hand does anyone know offhand how many characters are in the game playable and npc?

  8. Hope she is still avaible for black friday


  9. Meant to say a ‘no brainer’


  10. For me this was a brainer. I had 200+ donuts after Halloween and was thinking of getting a new character anyway. It was the bonus % that sealed the deal.
