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 Elf Bart & Elf Lisa to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Elf duo 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.
Costumes: Elf Bart & Elf Lisa
Donut Cost: 100 Donuts
Leaves stores January 2nd, 2018
-Will turn Bart and Lisa (freemium characters) into a premium character
-Comes with a questline
-Helps fight the Aliens during the Act 2 questline (battles)
-Just a skins, not a new characters
-1 hr task is a joint task with the two characters
-Do not earn extra event currency over freemium characters, and not necessary to complete event.
I like them. They’re cute and festive, but by no means are they necessary for this event. I wouldn’t purchase them for the event currency aspect, I got them because they make me smile & their spread cheer task is great! If you like them, grab them. But if you’d rather spend your donuts on full chracters pass.
I’d pass on this duo. Save your donuts for new characters, and if you still have some left towards the end of the event & you like them pick them up. But for now I’d pass, they’re not necssary for the event.
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).
