Should I Spend Donuts on Mexican Duffman?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s nearly Cinco de Mayo!  A new holiday in Springfield gives EA an excuse to drop holiday-themed premium items in our stores.  A bunch of items (mostly returning) to tempt you with their Sprinkles.

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 Mexican Duffman (or any of the combos) to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this South of the Border Duffman to your town…

If you don’t have Duffman or Lady Duff you’ll see a bunch of different offers available.  Here are all the combinations you can get:

So depending on which characters you have you’ll get offered different bundles.  The first bundle comes with Duffman, the Brewery and Lady Duff (a skin for Duffman).  The second (offered if you already have Duffman) is Lady Duff (skin for Duffman) and Mexican Duffman.  And the third (offered if you already have Duffman and Lady Duff) is just for Mexican Duffman.
Your best deal out of these is the first one.  150 donuts for 2 characters, a building, and a skin is a good deal.  You should take advantage of it if offered.
Here’s more info about Duffman and Lady Duff if you need it:

Duffman and Brewery
Lady Duff

This should I Buy is specific to the Mexican Duffman only option in the store.

Character(s): Mexican Duffman (FULL Character, not a costume)
Donut Cost:
100 Donuts

Leaves stores May 9th

Pros
-Comes with a questline
-Voiced

Cons
-Expensive for a stand-alone character
-No benefit for the event
-His outdoor tasks aren’t really that great (one of them is basically the same as Duffman’s…)

Final Thought
Premium:
Personally, I’m passing on Mexican Duffman.  I just don’t see the 100 donut value in him.

Freemium:
Pass on just Mexican Duffman.  Not worth the 100 donuts.

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 passed.  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 his tasks…

  1. Mexican Duffman – while I agree that Duffman + Duff Brewery + Lady Duff Skin (for Duffman) offered with Mexican Duffman for 150 Donuts is a bargain? I’m hesitant on the offer until EA takes care of that Rollback Glitch (I’m sure these will all return in a Mystery Box).

    Cinco de Mayo had some great Premiums in the Store! 😀

  2. I did not realize in Act 1 that Nana Sofia was Milhouse’s grandma until Patric’s post. I found the event and prizes lackluster and didn’t try hard. Now I want Nana and have to shell out 100 donuts for her. Ouch! Sorry, Luchadora Duff, you’re out- necessita abuelita!

  4. Strange ? My bundle has Duffman, Lady Duff & the Mexican. So I assume this is indeed a great deal ?

    • The bundle depends on what you already have. I liked Duffman because he helps with the Heights, which I found extremely tedious to do.

    • It’s a smokin’ hot deal! Do it! I probably paid 150 for Duffman and the brewery alone

  5. I want it… but trapped in rollback glitch limbo….

    I like it when the game has more international character.

    • That’s my issue too
      Do I play as normal and hope the end event update fixes? Are we gonna be rolled back to the week or more ago since glitching?

  6. I almost always get the characters, but I’m still not sure about this one! I’ll think about it for another day or two…
