Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Lions and Tigers and Emus…oh my! The Springfield Zoo (aka Moe’s Ark) event is in full swing in our pocket-sized towns! Of course, by now, we all know that a new event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with limited-time premium items to tempt us.
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 Big Bug House to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this buggy location to your town…
Building/Decoration: Big Bug House
Donut Cost: 50 Donuts
Earns: $500, 45xp/24hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +400
Can Be Placed: grass|dirt|pavement|boardwalk|pier
Leaves stores August 9th
-Comes with a short questline
-Youngsters (ie Kids) have a permanent 8hr task there (Get Caught in Webs, earns $420, 105xp)
-Animated when in use, lights on windows on top open to reveal spiders
-A fairly generic looking building
Premium or Freemium:
Fun, inexpensive, premium building. I like that kids have a permanent task there and the animation is fun. If you like it, grab 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’m on the fence. I’ll likely pass, bugs aren’t my thing and I don’t plan on keeping a zoo in Springfield. 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 questline it comes with…

Comic Book Guy: Alas, spider-powers have eluded me. I am left with but only decaying flesh from the spider’s venom. Worst spider bite ever.
