Should I Spend Donuts on the Burns Chalk Outline?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s time for a little mystery in Springfield!  The latest mini-event to hit our games has caused us to put on our investigative hats to see just who shot Mr. Burns.  Of course a new mini-event in town means a new opportunity for EA to add new premium items to our stores!

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 Burns Chalk Outline to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this chalky old man to your town…

Building/Decoration: Burns Chalk Outline
Donut Cost: 10 Donuts
0.25% Bonus on all Cash and XP
Vanity +100
Can Be Placed: 

Leaves stores May 23rd

I’m not going to give pros and cons with this one.  Instead, i’m just going to just right to the final thought…

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
This is one of those If you like it get it items.  It’s 10 donuts, the bonus % is terrible for donuts spent, and it doesn’t do anything.  If you like it, get it.  But honestly, I can’t see a reason why you should.

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.  Just not worth it.  (even if it’s only 10 donuts) But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).


What are your thoughts on the Burns Chalk Outline?  Will you be spending the donuts to bring it to your Springfield? Did you already?  Why or why not?  Where have you placed it in your town?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. what is this sundial trick you speak of?

  2. Justin Henriks

    The item limit in the game is too low to place items with such low bonus percentage, if the item limit is increased I will reconsider purchasing items such as this and find a creative way of using it… some good ideas mentioned in this post.

    Got one just cuz it fits anywhere in my town since everyone wants Burns dead. Lolol

  4. Keith1Roon991

    Got some other chalk lines but can’t remember we’re i put them, may have bought it if % was better

  5. Grabbed one not knowing about the sundial trick….oh well…

  6. I’ve been locked out if TSTO since Last Wednesday’s update. Despite numerous phone calls to report the bug all I receive from EA are emails closing the incidents and telling me it’s fixed. When I call I’m still told that the Escalation Team is still working the 5/11 complaint. Despite numerous folks being locked out if the game EA refuses to fix it. Why isn’t there anything on this blog concerning the issue?

    • Because we’re not EA and not all bugs get reported to us…

      Also, if it’s not impacting a wide spread of players we don’t usually write a post about it.

  7. My rail yard is working again? Nothing else fixed in the glitch though.

    I like the outlines so added this one to my collection : )

  9. F.U. to EA
    I have completely lost interest in this game. I’m not sure why I should keep playing. I now have almost $500 million (and over 1,000 crafted items for S.H.’s) and nothing to spend it on. How about you give us some items for money and just not put new items in for donuts (way too greedy). The last thing was this land token b.s. I’m done!
    1. Let us buy land
    2. Add to S.H.’s
    3. Do you remember that there is Krustyland. How about add to that or allow us who do play it put more items there from Springfield (like all the Duff items).
    Just a couple of thought to try and keep me around.

      The Beer fountains from the last mini-event (Homer vs the 18th amendment) can be put in Krustyland.
      Also, although SH addition would be nice, i dont want to grind for lots more…

  10. One less reason to get this is the fact that you can tap the Sundial (prize) to toggle it between the default style and one with a burns chalk outline on top.

  11. I have all my chalk outlines at the bottom of the escalator to nowhere so got one to add to the SPLAT design 😁
