Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Christmas is gone but snowy Springfield is still here! In addition to a mini update hitting our games, we’ve also got ourselves an episode tie-in carry over going on. Yesterday, Brendan Beiderbecke hit our games for a limited-time…from Sunday’s Haw-Haw Land episode.
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 the STEM Conference Hotel and Brendan to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this sciency/jazzy duo to your town…
Character: Brendan Beiderbecke
Building/Decoration: STEM Conference Hotel
Donut Cost:150 Donuts
Other Info: Can be placed on the grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt|ice
Build Time: 12hrs….WEIRD for a premium item
Leaves stores January 16th, 2018
-Full premium character
-Comes with a questline
-A couple of amusing outdoor animated tasks
-Building is animated (lights up) when in use (and it will be used beyond questline)
-Expensive for a just introduced, and likely never heard of again, character combo
-Building animation is meh
-It has a 12hr build time…if I’m spending donuts I want to use items right away
Meh, I’m underwhelmed with this one. I’ll end up buying him before he leaves because it’s a character combo…but Meh. Really underwhelming for the donut cost.
I’d pass on this duo. Save your donuts for a couple of better characters, but if you still have donuts come January 15th and really want him then grab him. But for now I’d 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’m underwhelmed but I’ll end up purchasing him because of science and character combos and stuff. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).
