Gil’s Latest Gimmick: Details and Should You Buy Sarah Wiggum & the Springfield Aquarium

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Looks like Gil’s back in Springfield.  He returned to Springfield this morning, naturally with another ‘deal” for us.  What’s the latest gimmick he’s peddling? Well this time around he’s finally bringing a Springfield mom we’ve been asking for YEARS for…Sarah Wiggum!

So let’s break down the details of this latest offer and determine if you should spend your donuts to reunite the Wiggum family….

So when you first get into Springfield you’ll see Gil waving his arms around…just begging you to tap on him…

If you tap on him you’ll see…

Gil: Ol’ Gil’s luck is turning around. Larry Kidkill is reopening the zoo. I’ll betcha baboons to beluga whales I can sell him the Aquarium. You can’t have a zoo without Ol’ Gil or fish gills!

At which point you’ll see his latest gimmick…

If you refuse…

Gil: Not taking the bait? I’m the one on the hook, line, and sinker this time. Ol’ Gil’s going to be sleeping with the fishes for real.

If you accept…

Gil:  I may have been washed up, but my aquarium critters don’t have to be! We’re all having sushi tonight!

Now real quick because…if you refuse the offer will go back in the store.  It will be there…

This Deal Ends August 23rd

And now for the part, you’ve all been waiting for…the Should I Buy…

Character:  Sarah Wiggum
Building: Springfield Aquarium
Donut Cost: 300 Donuts (ouch!)
Size: 10×9
Earns: $200,22xp/8hrs
Consumerism +20
Can Be Placed: grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt

This Deal Ends August 23rd

-Comes with a questline
-Amusing outdoor tasks
-Chief Wiggum has a permanent 4hr task there (Feed the Fish)
-Helps earn event currency for Moe’s Ark
-The building is animated when in use

-Insanely priced for a character/building combo.  But I think we all knew that was going to happen…
-Not voiced

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
I know she’s insanely priced, but it’s Sarah Wiggum.  You should buy her.  You can take your chances and see if she comes back at a discount down the road, but why wait?  We’ve waited 6 years for her to join the game, she’s finally here…just pick her 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’ve got her.   Price is steep, but it’s Sarah Wiggum.  Had to get her. 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…

Sarah Wiggum’s Permanent Tasks:

Task Length Earns Location
Visit Jake’s Unisex Hair Palace 1hr $105, 26xp* Jake’s
Ignore Chief Wiggum 4hrs $260, 70xp Brown House
Cut Ralph’s Hair 8hrs $695, 175xp* Outside/Visual
Drink Boxed Wine 12hrs $600, 150xp* Outside/Visual
Drink at Moe’s 24hrs $1000, 225xp Moe’s

During the event her 1, 8 and 12 hour tasks will pay out event currency.  After the event they’ll revert back to in-game cash. 

(8hr task payout is what I expect it to be, however, I cannot fully verify because until the event is over it pays event currency)

And because this is the complete details on the Gil Deal, here’s the Turbo Tappin’ Version of her questline…

  1. Now of course 30 donuts, what a bargain !!!

  2. If you get the family fun 5 questline Chief Wiggum and Sarah Wiggum’s tasks payout 105 animal tracks for a four hour task. If you just don’t do Ralphs task I think you can do those two tasks over and over earning more than if you send them to the zoo….

  3. I got her, but the building is really meh. Now she’ helping with the event, permanent tasks are for later. A shame you can’t store the aquarium seperately

  4. At 300 donuts and 95% of Gil’s deals returning at a discount or mystery box, I will save my donuts. About 100 donuts over priced.

  5. It’s Sarah Wiggum…………….. who? Ok, I know it’s Ralph’s mum, but I don’t remember her being in the show at all. I don’t know why she’d be a “must buy” as such a forgettable character. Easy pass for me.

  6. Already commented on Sarah 2 days ago on the open thread (bought her, btw). The only thing I don’t like (beside being overpriced obviously) are the joint task requiring another character since Sarah needs Ralph for her 8 hr tasks. Both the Sexy Pirate AND the Disapproving Squirrel require Marge for their 8 hr tasks! The Parson needs Rev Lovejoy for his 8 hr task (he has TWO 4 hr tasks!).

    On a side note, poor Gummy Joe still doesn’t have a 24 hr task! This throws me off whenever I send all my non-event characters on a 24 hr task. Every character in the game each should have an 1 hr, 4 hr, 8 hr, 12 hr, and 24 hr task that DOESN’T require another character.

    • Gravedigger Billy joins my Gummie Joe on their 24-hour shifts. He requires Willie.

    • Agreed about Gummy Joe needing a 24-hour task (that doesn’t involve using his tooth for something!). He also needs more alternate tasks–like “try to win at blackjack” for four hours and “Dance the Senor Burns” (premium 8-hour task in the Chez Guevara). The only tasks I put him in are one-hour or 12-hour (because I hate that the others involve abusing his only tooth).

  7. I bought her because I have been waiting her forever and she completes a family. I think if you don’t buy her you might be shooting yourself in the foot. When(if) they release human Maude don’t you think she’s going to be up in the 275-300 range? How many characters did they only release once and never bring back that I see people pining over time and time again.

  8. Pyanfar the Hani

    A buy for me for one reason only: she has a 12 hour visual task. If she was the standard 4/8 hour visual task set we’ve seen all year, I’d pass.

    • ^This!

      I am continually annoyed by the 300 donut price tag that seems to be the new standard, but I couldn’t resist this one.
