Should I Spend Donuts on Westminster Abbey, Oscar Wilde & Geoffrey Chaucer?

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 Westminster Abbey, Oscar Wilde & Geoffrey Chaucer to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this ghostly trio to your town…

Character(s): Geoffrey Chaucer & Oscar Wilde (two INDEPENDENT Characters)
Westminster Abbey
Donut Cost:
175 Donuts
$500, 45xp/24hrs
Vanity +400
Can Be Placed: 

Leaves stores April 22nd

-Two FULL Characters for Springfield
-Comes with a questline (which can wait until the event is over to complete)
-A couple of amusing visual tasks
-Will use Westminster Abby for tasks and it’s animated when in use (lights up birds fly)
-Both characters can do heists
-Oscar Wilde is Voiced
-Reasonably priced for the 3 items you receive

-Chaucer is not voiced
-Fairly Large footprint (12×9)

Final Thought
I like this trio and think it’s a good buy.  If you figure about 50-60 donuts for the building, that’s 115-125 donuts for two characters.  Very fairly priced.  I like that they BOTH help with heists and that Oscar Wilde is voiced.  I wish they both were, but hey one is better than none. Good buy.  Not a must buy, but a good buy.

Not a bad pickup for freemium players.  It checks a lot of the boxes and it’s two premium characters for your town.  Again, not a must buy, but a good buy.  Consider picking this one up

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 picked this one up.  But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).

  1. I bought this and am happy with the way premium characters. However the job for 1hr. Overrides all other 1 he. Jobs. And doesn’t pay premium for characters in premium skins.


  2. Westminster Abbey, Oscar Wilde & Geoffrey Chaucer …. one could say this is the most epic Premium offered during the Event, however, I’m not spending Sprinkles until EA permanently fixes this Rollback Glitch with a Patch (sorry, but I need to put my foot down)!


  3. I wonder why they elected to make these two ghosts, when we have live versions of many other historical figures. Oh well.


  4. Got them, but don’t see the option for them to contribute with heist. Help?!


  5. I don’t understand why they chose THESE two characters…they could choose any 2 famous British people to be characters, and they didn’t choose Shakespeare? Or Winston Churchill? Or Henry VIII or something? Just seems like a missed opportunity, I’ve never even heard of Chaucer.


  6. Necromantic Nightmare

    I’m currently donut mining w/ the collided on, and putting everyone to tour the Abbey for an hour is great. The ghosts do heists while the people tour, and make me $ to buy blood mobiles. It’s working great.


  7. Pro: Maude won’t be alone…


  8. Why am I having problems downloading your emails?

    Sent from my iPad



  9. I bought it and love it. Will look great with my Halloween stuffkl


  10. That’s now 600 donuts I need to get all the limited time buildings I want. I don’t mind you being over critical on future sib posts


  11. I went ahead and bought this. I have just enough left for the Palace, but I don’t know about that one since it doesn’t help with the event. I wish the donut deals would be replaced with something else if you’ve already got the first one. It’s now hard to fork out that ten bucks if there are no extras. I’m spoiled!


  12. Ghosts? Ka-ching ☠😁


  13. Why is this game constantly adding updates, only to see nothing new once it downloads? Several times a day this happens.


    • Your phone is running out of memory space. Parts of the game are unloaded then. Free some space. TSTO needs about 2.5 GB.
      Closing down all apps but TSTO might help too.


    • I get the multiple download issue fairly often, too. It’s absolutely a memory issue, but I believe this is also due to a mistake in the way EA has built the game. I just submitted a bug report on this today and urge you to do so as well. If the game needs that 1.4 GB of data to run, then the game shouldn’t tell iOS that it’s cached memory that can be deleted.


      • It’s kinda funny because it never happened in the past. I remember 2 phones ago (so 3-4 years ago) i would just get an alert i didn’t have enough space and I couldn’t play TSTO. Now within the last 9months- a year it started doing the constant download thing…very odd.


        • I think Apple changed something in how it manages cached memory, and EA hasn’t changed their game to keep up. It’s only an issue for people running out of space, the issue can be resolved without EA’s help, and they can totally blame me for not having enough space. So I think I’m waiting a while to see a fix here.


  14. Another HUGE church. Is Springfield in the Bible belt


  15. I love this event! I have been waiting to see the outdoor tasks and sold! I love it! Thank you so much, now I’m on the edge of my seat for the details on the Gil Jack the Ripper deal.


  16. Ahhh!!! There is just too much going on with this game right now. From bad glitches to bad decisions. WHEN are they going to fix this rather glaring glitch in the Towns? I am noticing more items have gone missing as I look through my Springfield. And then there is the matter of LAND. Each of these bases in this Event take up at least ONE LAND SQUARE. I cannot buy ANYTHING because I havnt the land to put it on. What a very poor decision. There is so many great item in the store, but i wont buy them because i cant use them….


  17. I bought this combo as soon as it appeared in both my games & wrote about it in another post here.
