We are being sent round the world once again, in hopes of collecting art, buildings and artifacts relating to some of the finest artistic capitals in the world (sorry Australia). There are a TON of items to be won and crafted, and we are here to cover some of the benefits for winning them, which can linger long after the event is over!
The 6th Prize to be awarded is the Leaning Tower!
Let’s take a look!
Well…there are some prizes that are great, and some that end up just sitting there. This is more the latter, unless you are really into old architecture that was poorly designed. Based on the ORIGINAL leaning tower (of Pisa), it is one of those buildings that may or may not fit into your Springfield after the event is over…and should probably have been called the “Pizza Tower” with quests for Homer and Barney to eat there. But, I digress…
The actual tower was a design mess from almost the start. According to Wiki: “The tower’s tilt began during construction in the 12th century, caused by an inadequate foundation on ground too soft on one side to properly support the structure’s weight. The tilt increased in the decades before the structure was completed in the 14th century. It gradually increased until the structure was stabilized (and the tilt partially corrected) by efforts in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.”
Those were some really, really, stubborn Italians! “Hey Joe…that tower is’a leanin’ big time! We need to take it down and start over again. What? Fat Tony owns that land and wants it here? OK…looks’a good to me…if you turn’a your head sideways like’a dis!”
So…you get the tower after collecting 22,120 paintings. Hey…maybe the paintings are stored in the top of the tower…maybe that’s why it leans!!
So as I mentioned, you have a choice with this one. Place it or store it…it doesn’t really help with the Event.
