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 Buckingham Palace to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this piece of gated royalty to your town…
Building/Decoration: Buckingham Palace
Donut Cost: 60 Donuts
Conform-O-Meter: Indolence +20
Can Be Placed: grass|dirt|pavement|boardwalk|pier
Leaves stores April 22nd
-Comes with a short questline
-Willy has a permanent 4hr task there (Challenge Guards to a fight)
-Adds no value (other than look) for the event. No currency earned there…
Premium or Freemium:
This is one of those If you like it get it items. It’s nice that it comes with a task, always a bonus for a stand-alone building, but it doesn’t add value to this event. And there’s nothing screaming “Buy it!” So regardless of player status, if you like it and have a design plan for it get it. Otherwise, pass.
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 honestly haven’t decided yet. I may end up with it, but there’s nothing overwhelming spectacular about it. Honestly just looks like another government building. 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 the dialogue it comes with…
Lisa: Finally! This town has a spectacular royal residence.
Homer: Mmm, Bucking-ham sandwich.
Make Lisa Watch the Changing of the Guard- 4hrs, Earns $260, 70xp
Make Homer Salivate- 4hrs, Earns $260, 70xp
