Gil’s Latest Gimmick: Details and Should You Buy Moe’s Express, Larry & Sam

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Looks like Gil’s back in Springfield.  He returned to Springfield early this morning (he likes to sneak into town under the cloak of darkness…), naturally with another offer for us.  What’s the latest gimmick he’s peddling? Well with all the fighting going on in Springfield, makes total sense to me that’s this time he’s pushing booze!

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

 

 

So when you first get into Springfield you’ll see Gil waving his arms around..doing his best impression of Touchdown Jesus (fitting since Sunday is the Superbowl)…just begging you to tap on him…

If you tap on him you’ll see…

Gil: With all the fighting over the Mega Playscape, Ol’ Gil has hit the skids again. Where are good guys like me supposed to nod off after a day of doing nothing?  That’s what I used to ask myself before finding this Moe’s Express kit.  If you’d just help set ‘er up, Ol’ Gil and the boys will ahve a place to park it between sittings at Moe’s Tavern!

At which point you’ll see his latest gimmick…

If you refuse…

Gil: It was worth a shot.  Since I can’t even afford the nails to put this together I guess I’ll burn the wood for warmth.

If you accept…

Gil:  Wow, thanks, my pale ale pal! I’d offer to buy you a beer but my wallet’s drier than you are.

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 February 7th

If you accept you’ll be tasked with placing Moe’s Express, once placed you’ll unlock Larry and Sam (they complete the Barflies collection, with Barney)!

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

Building/Decoration: Moe’s Express
Characters: 
  Larry & Sam
Donut Cost: 199 Donuts
Earns: Premium characters, so earns at a premium rate.  Moe’s Express earns nothing
Size:
5×7
Conform-O-Meter: 
Gluttony +10
Can Be Placed: grass|pavement|boardwalk|beach|pier|dirt

This Deal Ends February 7th

Pros
-Two Full premium characters
-Comes with a questline
-Moe’s Express has a visual task for ALL of Moe’s “Regulars” to drink there

Cons
-A Bit pricey (although 199 for 2 characters and a deco isn’t awful)
-Will likely come back in the future at a discounted cost (probably in a Mystery Box)…just like the Nerds did recently
-Not Voiced
-Moe’s Express doesn’t come with a bonus % or extra income earner

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
I know it’s pricey…but it’s great!  I’m a big fan of the visual task for ALL of the regulars (and Moe).  Plus it’s two characters…considering the last couple of Gil Deals have been 1 character or an NPC at the same price, I think this is more than fair. (I’m also not someone worried it may “go on sale” later.  I’ll get my enjoyment out of it prior to that potential sale 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’m a big fan and 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).

Here’s  a look at how the Moe’s Express task looks for all characters:

And here’s the task list for the regulars:

Although not listed here…Moe has a 4hr task there as well.  During Bart Royale it will earn prize track currency.

  3. I bought it and think it’s a great deal,ppl shouldn’t be so stingy to the game.
    I like that you can send the jobs from the building ,I think that’s a pro.

    • It’s not about being stingy that’s such a dumb comment to make
      It’s about EA selling items for a ridiculous amount then turning straight around around and putting them in a mystery box for next to nothing I’ve paid for many Gil items and they keep ending up in boxes for next to nothing it’s a joke

      • I think it’s “dumb” to get mad at EA for later lowering the price of things.
        I’m sure you would also complain if they raised the price. No winning.
        Some ppl just like to complain.
        All shoppers realize you pay extra when things are brand spanking new.
        You wrote you eventually caught on to this universal sales tactic.
        It’s up to the buyer to get it higher priced right away
        or wait 6 months or longer to get it it a lower price gambled in a box with many other things. Complaining EA later lowers the price is not productive to players. Complaining EA debuts it higher priced is not productive to the company’s business.

  5. Yeah, that’s the second month of me playing the game and the second deal I got from Gil.

    I like beer, I like the Simpsons.

    So I build Moe’s Express on the beach, next to a campfire. Yes, I would like to drink beer there too 🍻

    Pricey but I really enjoy having it.

  6. I was hoping for a good Gil deal. I’m all about collecting the older characters that I actually recognize. Sam and Larry are about as old as they get, so I’m psyched. The animated quest of all the guys at the bar is awesome. Glad I could finally help Gil out with something. I also picked up Wendell, so my classic collection is looking good these days.

  7. Moe’s Express , Larry and Sam – almost had me Gil! I’m fine if Characters are not voiced (they all can’t be), I’m grateful for Permanent Character Tasks (yes), but a Building should generate $ and XP (a shame ’cause this Building has great Visual Tasks)!

  8. Yep, both the man I love and I got this one. We’re farmers but don’t normally buy Gil deals.
    I’m willing to suggest it’s one of the more popular Gil deals – and that’s the advantage (to EA) of using long-standing characters instead of the one-off characters that seem to have been favoured recently.

  12. I want this and think it’s a good deal but I only have about 300 donuts (freemium, not a KEM farmer) but I’m saving up hoping that Jesus will come back around Easter. Any idea if this might happen?

  13. Hi,
    Just bought this deal and I sent Moe, Larry and Sam there yet only Moe shows up behind the bar, Larry and Sam both went to Moe’s Tavern so there’s no outside visual for these two baffles?
    I tapped on Moe’s Express and it only let me find Moe?

    • You have to finish the quest/task line before you can send the Barflys to Moe’s Express…all the quest jobs are at Moe’s or the Brown House. The last task in the quest is to send everyone to Moe’s Express and have Moe serve drinks there.

  14. I still need to KEM farm about 15 donuts, and then it’s a buy. It will put me rock bottom at donuts but i don’t want to wait till an eventually sale. This sale could take years from now to happen, and soon those who wait now will be the first to complain it hasn’t returned yet.

  17. Just reached level 939, does it make sense to keep KEM farming or just play normal?

      Continue the KEM farming at your heats delight.

      Liked by 1 person

    • I’ve kept at it since I hit 939. It takes twice as long to level up now, but you average 2 doughnuts every level, so it balances out to the same rate you were earning before. My 36 KEM farm gets me 4-6 doughnuts every 4 hours, which is plenty for what I want to buy from the event offerings and remaining characters.

      Like

    • I think it makes more sense after level 939 than it did before. Now you get a chance at 3 donuts each time you reach 1,000,000 XP rather than 1 donut for leveling up at 500,000 XP…a better yield per XP earned.

  21. Just a note on the event currency tasks: I’m expecting to get Pyro today so no need to rush for Duffs. I’d rather use the playground tasks saving up some scrap for crafting later in act II.
    Off course when you are far behind the schedule: go for the beer 🤪
