Still one of my favorite signs, I have several in my Springfield.  Makes me giggle every time I see it.  Opinion remains unchanged

Leaves Stores February 28th

Item: Overgrown Ruins Bundle
Includes: 7 various shrubs, 6 Brazilwood Tress, 4 Flaming Torches, 2 Ruins, Catacombs & Shallow Grave
 90 Donuts
Earns: No bonus % on any items, however I believe the Catacombs earn cash and XP
What Does It Do: Decorations, however Bart has a 12hr task at the Catacombs
My Opinion On It Now:
Meh, really not worth the donuts

Leave Stores February 28th

 50 Donuts
Earns: Fuel Tank earns 1% on cash and XP, Fishing Platform 2%, Prison Tower earns .75%
What Does It Do: Mostly just decorations, some animation
My Opinion On It Now:
50 donuts is fair for 3.75% bonus, but it’s a lot of items & you’ll need to find room in your ocean for them.

  1. Been waiting for this review as I couldn’t make my mind up whether I wanted the aqua World bundle persuaded me to get it as I thought that it looks good but wasn’t sure if the cost was appropriate for what you get. But I’m happy and had plenty of room in my water still.

  2. Actually, I picked up two aqua world bundles. Seeing as everything in this event can be placed on boardwalk/pier tiles (with the exception of the outlands sign) I’m moving the whole thing into the water. Seemed like a good % investment.

  3. Correct me if I am wrong, but on the EA forums I read the following about the bonus: burning torches are 0.2% each yielding 0.8 total; and aqua world has 1%, 2%, and 1% – total 4%. I purchased the aqua world, its true. 4%. I have no idea about the torches though. Thanks!

  4. I bought the aqua bundle. But it gave me 4%, not 3.75%!

  5. Have the aqua world bundle from previous event but not the %, buying again would be pointless

  6. The image on my phone made me think the ruins bundle was a new item so I picked it up. Whoops
