Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Claus Co, Annual Gift Man or Portal to Rigel 7?

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 premium items from Christmases past 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 Claus Co, Annual Gift Man or Portal to Rigel 7 to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

  1. Is the Portal to Rigel 7 needed to store Kang when you want him to stop a task?

  2. Have them already but the portal is the best I set it up in my Egypt themed area, reminder of the Stargate TV programme 😊

  3. I had Claus Co since it first appeared in 2013 and then stored it because I could not create a design for it, a few weeks ago I brought it out of storage and decided to add it with another skyscraper building (the Royal Tokyo) going along the mountains. I also want to have other skyscraper buildings to add with these two, so does anyone know of any other skyscraper buildings that have been available?

    • I have a skyscraper area with my TentaCorp building, Superior Squad HQ (fallout boy), ZiffCorp, and Nero’s Palace. Also the Marketing Agency from Springfield Heights is a nice skyscraper

      • Thanks for listing some other buildings that are skyscrapers, I was thinking of another building that matches or has similar dark colours to CC (Claus Co) and RT (Royal Tokyo) but I did remember that I had King Homer’s Skyscraper in the storage so that could work with these two. I have also been planning on redesigning my area in the Springfield Heights and have another skyscraper area in there using the Superior Squad HQ, Marketing Agency and maybe some Business Centres up against the mountains.

    • Here is my downdown area with all my tall buildings…have customized a few, but I think this is all I have. (My Ziffcorp building is elsewhere as are all the Casinos)

      • I really like what you did with Tomorrow’s Costington’s and Tenta-Corp with the additions, I made a little area with Skyberdine, Mushroom Offices and regular Office Towers with Tenta-Corp in my future Springfield area a few months ago, I didn’t really consider Ziffcorp a skyscraper because it is too small so I made a little area for it with the Indoor Tennis Courts and the Ziffcorp Sign.

  5. So there’s no boxing day sale in the game this year? We had a sale on content last year.

    • We did? Pretty sure if we did it wasn’t because of boxing day. Remeber is an American game based on an American family… when was the last time you saw The Simpsons celebrate boxing day?

  6. The Claus Co building has a rebate so it isn’t 90 Donuts. I think it’s like 90-30=60? And annual gift man doesn’t have a rebate in my game. I think he’s 45…

  7. Did homer say to Dr. Hibbert “because of African Americans likely (New England patriots) style success in our country is why people hate you”? WOW!!
    Tapped out/simpson writers got some politicly incorrect nads.

    I’ll keep tapping and laughing cuz I’m an addicted whale.

    • No.

      ———–SPOILER ALERT!———

      Here’s the actual dialog:

      Kwanzaa Dr. Hibbert: O.K., Homer, you stuck with it enough to learn the most important principle of all – “imani”, or faith.
      Homer: Like faith that the New England Patriots will always win no matter how far down they are at halftime?
      Kwanzaa Dr. Hibbert: Well, kind of. It means faith that we African-Americans will be able to survive and thrive in American society.
      Kwanzaa Dr. Hibbert: In your analogy, we’re the Patriots.
      Homer: That explains why most of America hates you. Dr. Hibbert, I’m glad you taught me about Kwanzaa. What can I do for you?
      Kwanzaa Dr. Hibbert: Just once, don’t electrocute yourself on your own Christmas lights.

    • That is not what was said. I don’t know if you’re purposely misquoting and misinterpreting the dialogue to cause trouble or what.
