Should I Spend Donuts on the Colosseum?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Let the heisting begin! The latest event in Springfield, The Springfield Job, is all about pulling off elaborate Heists…well not too elaborate Homer is involved…in a bet between two Nuclear Power Plant owners.

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 Colosseum to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Gladiator Death Oval to your town…

Building/Decoration: Colosseum
Donut Cost:
100 Donuts
Size:
7×10
Earns:
2 ,15xp/4hrs
Conform-O-Meter:
Vanity +200
Can Be Placed: 
grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt

Leaves stores April 5th

Pros
-Comes with a short questline
-Helps earn crafting currency, one of the hardest to get
-Lisa has a permanent 4hr premium task there (Visit the Colosseum)

Cons
-Crafting currency payout isn’t great
-The animation is meh, a gladiator’s head rolls out
-Massive footprint

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
I’d pass on this no matter your player status.  It’s overpriced for what it is/does.  The payout isn’t great, not worth the 100 donuts you’ll have to shell out for it.

Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as a premium player, I’m passing.  But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).  Plus this is one of those items that’ll help with the event, so if you’re planning on getting it do it sooner rather than later….

Here’s a look at the dialogue it comes with…

Colo-See ‘Em Fight
Lisa starts

Lisa: This replica of the Roman Colosseum is amazing!
Cecil: Thank you, Lisa. It’s accurate right down to the sewer grate that they slopped gladiator guts through.
Lisa: Sometimes I wish people remembered that I’m an eight year old.
Make Lisa Visit the Colosseum- 4hrs, Earns $260, 70xp

  1. This is going to be one of those events… I can’t say no to anything, love all the “international” stuff they throw at us. Rome, Pompeji and Venice are definitely on my “to visit” list, so far I only made it to northern Italy. Not that the lakes and mountains are not great, but Italy needs ruins… 🙂

  4. I’m extremely behind… I got the update late. Would you suggest buy this to even more things to craft or buy a character that helps earn currency? Thank you in advance for your advice 🙂
