Gil’s Latest Gimmick: Details and Should You Buy Jesus

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Looks like Gil’s back in Springfield.  He returned to Springfield yesterday, naturally with another offer for us.  What’s the latest gimmick he’s peddling? It’s only natural that he’d be pushing the Son of God on us.

So let’s breakdown the details of this latest offer and determine if you should spend your donuts on this heavenly Combo….


So when you first get into Springfield you’ll see Gil waving his arms around..doing his best impression of Touchdown Jesus (fitting considering who he’s offering up)…just begging you to tap on him…

If you tap on him you’ll see…

Gil: Hey there, pal!  How’d you like to help someone who’s had some pretty rough times? I’m talking about Jesus Christ, of course! So, help me show him we still remember his birthday!

At which point you’ll see his latest gimmick…

If you refuse…

Gil: No sale, huh?  Boy, my boss is gonna be mad. He told me if I didn’t make a sale I’d have to answer to Pontius Pilate.  I don’t know who this is, but I was kicked out of my last Pilates class for stealing the mats.

If you accept…

Gil:  Oh, wow.  That’s what I inappropriately call a mitzvah. Now I get to spend the holidays with the people I love…the blackjack dealers at Springfield Casino.  I feel lucky, cha-cha-cha!

Now real quick because I’m seeing this asked A LOT…if you refuse the offer will go back in the store.  It will be there.  Your store may look like this

Take your finger and swipe to the left.  The screen moves…i promise.  If you swipe you’ll see more stuff on that main screen and it’ll look like this…

Lo and behold….the Gil deal!

This Deal Ends December 26th…the day after Jesus’ birthday

If you accept you’ll be tasked with placing the Heavenly Swing, once placed & built (instant build) you’ll unlock Jesus!

And now for the part, you’ve all been waiting for…the Should I Buy…

Building/Decoration: Heavenly Swing
Donut Cost: 199 Donuts
Earns: Premium character, so earns at a premium rate.  He’ll also earn event currency during Alien battles
Obedience +10

Deal Ends December 26th

-Full premium character
-Comes with a questline
-Helps fight the Aliens during the Act 2 questline (battles)
-Really good animated tasks

-Really over priced for a character combo
-Swing doesn’t earn a bonus %

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
I know it’s pricey…but it’s great!  Dialogue is hilarious, tasks are funny & all around good character.  Donut price stinks, but this is probably the worst priced item of the event…and I still think it’s worth the price.

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. Any chance they’ll offer him again? So sad I missed this 🙁

  2. darn it, I think mine poofed before the 26th, I missed him. 🙁

  3. Jesus was NEVER available for purchase in the store for me. I’ve gotten everything else from this event but Jesus was NEVER an option. Worst. Event. Ever!

  4. this is the deal i wanted,.. but never did get close to having 199 bonuts. xP. maybe i will get enough to get ralphie, but i doubt it. [the puns]

  5. Very disappointed… I waited for the SIB and by the time it was out, Gil had mysteriously disappeared. This was before the 26th, so he should have still been around peddling his wares, but I guess it must have been a bug.

  6. Aww man, I missed Jesus 🙁 I forgot it ended the 26th XD

  7. I wasn’t too excited about much of the content in this event but did snap up Jesus & Shiva. Both have great animation! I was extra pleased to see that Jesus’ stairway can be placed on pier sections. I placed it on an island of 4 Ornate Pier sections and I really like the way it looks over the water!

  8. I am a freemium player but I was waiting for Xmas and iTunes cards, so I bought some extra donuts and splurged!! It was worth it! I had 100 donuts already so spent 10.00 on the 132 donuts and got him.. awesome! Just too much fun! So glad I splurged.. overpriced yes, but for me, worth it.. then I even spent the 5.00 and got the holiday scratch R ticket, got 100 donuts more.. my son got 300 on his holiday scratch R. Xmas was fun this year! Best donut day, lol!!

  9. I was waiting until Christmas Eve to decide if I wanted to give myself this present. That is a lot of donuts, but I’m glad I decided Yes. Thanks for the good advice, y’all!

  10. Honestly, I feel that he either should of been the final prize of the event instead of Jack Frost, a craftable prize that popped up in the carpentry shop during act two, or a free character that popped up by playing through the story. But, this is just my two cents about it.
    Any who, I passed up on him as I don’t have the donuts currently to afford him.

  11. I found he was well worth the donuts compared to burns dragon so I had to snag him and already have plans on getting Shiva a little later before the event is over.

  12. I can’t wait for Gil to become a playable character in this game. I’m gonna have fun torturing him over and over again for bothering me with his tempting offers. I remember everything he ever sold us, from the Mayflower to this one.

  13. This was a big disappointment for me. I was really looking forward to getting him but he’s possibly the only character in the game that can never leave his building and become part of Springfield. The animations are cute but it seems they could’ve done so much more with him. Hopefully they’ll give him some more tasks down the road.

  14. You should add a “working towards getting the deal” on your poll. This is the worst deal but since I’ve gotten some GREAT buys, i can justify this purchase. Good thing I dont have a winter mystery box or else I wouldn’t have been able to get it.

  15. I love having Jesus in my SF. His visual tasks are superb. For those who are hesitant or can’t afford him, I reckon he will resurface at Easter. Merry Christmas to all my lovely neighbours far and wide and other addicts near and far……💜X

  16. I really wanted the whole League, or I wouldn’t have spent 199 donuts on anything.
    Now their secret base is in my store for another 150 donuts, which is annoying. I want it, it it better be awfully special for a price like that.

  17. Buddha was free. Shiva, 75 donuts. And Jesus 199. One could look at it like the latter being worth more. Or one could look at it like the former being more accessible to the masses. (Tho obviously what’s going on is that EA felt, probably correctly, that more people would be willing to pay more for Jesus.)

  18. I grabbed him straight up. Usually I avoid Gil but this was voiced Jesus! I love watching him twist in the swing set.
