Should I Spend Donuts on J. Rigellian Christ & the Manger?

Note: This post has been updated to include his questline

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

There’s nothing quite as beautiful as Springfield in the snow, is there? Yes, there’s no denying that it’s officially Winter in our pocket-sized towns as the 2017 Holiday Event blew into our towns with a major cold front!  Of course, while the town is frosty cold the store is hot, hot, hot…and loaded with new premium items just tempting us to spend our sprinkles!

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us 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 J. Rigellian Christ & the Manger to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Alien Savior combo to your town…

Full Disclosure:  You guys know how much I love this time of the year & this event is loaded with really good content, I do intend to purchase every single NEW premium item available.  So I’ll do my best to provide an impartial view…but odds are it’ll be a little biased because I think the content for this event is phenomenal.

Pros
-Full character with complete set of tasks
-Comes with a questline
-Some hilarious animated tasks
-Manager has a fun look to it
-Uses the Manger for tasks, animated when in use star lights up

Cons
-Adds no benefit for the event
-While it’s become the norm, I do think 150 donuts for a non recurring character is over priced.
-Manger animation is pretty lame

Final Thought
Premium:
You already know from the above disclaimer that I bought it.  I like it.  He completes the Aliens set and his tasks make me laugh. Plus I have plans to add the Manger to my Rigellian area

Freemium:
Pass.  Not worth spending your donuts for a character that won’t help with the event & isn’t vital to the show.

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 already told you, I picked it up.   But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).

  1. I accidentally tapped and missed the final piece of dialog in this questline….if anyone feels like posting it here, I’d be grateful!

  2. J. Rigellian Christ & the Manger

    150 Sprinkles is about average for a Character + Building combo (although I think this is worth 100 since nothing here increases your ability to obtain Event Currency)

    Let’s see how much I can Kem Farm before making a decision to spend sprinkles (I DO find this clever) 👍
