  1. Did I miss the Monster Castle ‘Should I Buy’? 😜

  2. If the pet zombies and pet cemetary are now bundled, does that mean that storing the cemetary with also store the pets?

    • Nope, they aren’t associated in that way. My zombie pets are in storage with the majority of the NPCs, but the cemetery is out.

  3. I have a serious problem. Whenever I exit out of TSTO and return to it sometime later it redownloads the whole 870 something Mbs like I had just installed the game. It is very annoying because it is not a fast process to sit through every 4 hours. Any help or advice?

    • You need to free up space on your device. This game requires at least 5 GB free (maybe more these days). Free up space then it’ll download 1 more time and then it shouldn’t happen again

      • Alissa, i don’t mean to be insensitive to people in any way, but is there a way to make there an easy answer for people to find to this? I feel bad for how often you have to answer it.

  4. ‘Member when the Wailing Walls were craftable? I got 40-some from that, it was a glorious time to be alive.

  5. Have a lot of the walls but although I have snarling dog I don’t have the pet cemetery and it isn’t available to buy?, Checked everywhere but I don’t have it, bit expensive though.

    • It’s a package so if you have 1 item from it you can’t get it

      • I was going crazy wondering why it wasn’t in my store for purchase and I don’t recall ever buying it. I don’t see the cemetery anywhere in my town, but I see one of the dogs running around. Thanks for solving that mystery!

  6. I have a bunch of these. I kept thinking, wait, i didn’t buy these with donuts. I didn’t have many donuts back then. But then i followed the link for the past should i buy you linked to up there, which took me to another link, and there it was, the event where i crafted them. Halloween 2015, my first year playing. My first halloween. That was fun. Wish I would’ve known of this site back then.

  7. Other wise thing for old classic items is to await for…. 😈Black Friday😈


  8. got the cemetary from a box earlier this year, its nice not to have something in my shop for once!

    I needed ONE more wall to finish a design.
    Bought one.
    Placed it.
    Finished the design.
    I can sleep peacefully tonight.

  10. Wailing Wall

    I remember when these were Prizes / Craftables … I ♥️ all of mine (they each earn Simpson’s $ and XP) and so will Noobs who missed out (their Bonus % is nice, too).

    Pet Cemetary with 2 NPC Zombie Pets

    I never won this Prize when it was available (I was a Noob at the time). I don’t care for the NPCs (mine are all stored away), but I would’ve spent sprinkles on the Pet Cemetary for half of what EA wants now (there are too many better Premiums available now, this looks should have been in the Mystery Box).

    I’m sure there will be Tappers that will appreciate both 👍

    • I already had the pet cemetery, and the wailing wall was craftable back in 2015. I crafted a ton of them. I feel that 50donuts is a fair price for those who don’t have them yet, and a tad overpriced for me. It should have been 45, if you think from the regular 1% per 20 donuts point of view ;D

      • Since the wailing walls generate income as well as a bonus on every task, for me they are worth 50 donuts. I’ll earn back the price eventually. I did pick up a bunch as craftables long ago.

        I farm KEMs (usually just a little garden of 35) and focus on getting bonus items. Am up to almost 900% now and it really makes a difference. My little garden generates 9-12 donuts per harvest now, plus 3-6 from tasks and buildings. To get special items available for a limited time, I farm many more KEMs in empty sections. Usually get at least 70 extra per harvest that way, although it depletes my cash so I have to alternate with rest periods to get the cash up again. In between farming frenzies, I focus on building cash by sending everybody on premium tasks. That’s everybody in town now except the kids and that big elephant. Saves collection time for those premium tasks everybody can do like staying at the Swelldorado or paying too much for the drink Sex on the Beach.

  11. Should have crafted a lot the first time it was introduced, got 15 walls perks of a longtime player i guess..

  12. I was going to buy a bunch of walls too until I looked in my vault and was offered the jet bike for 20 donuts ( 30 with 10 back) with 2.00 % bonus. I did weigh the fact that the walls earn currency but I still have over a billion dollars even after spending 50 million on rat traps and got 825 donuts, and I still earn at least three million a day.
    So my suggestion is to check out your vaults. Last week I bought a bunch of war heads for 35 donuts and earned 2.25% on each.
    I finally got my % over 1,000 now.

  13. Bought over 100 wailing walls ( even more) IM GOIN ALL IN FELLAS

  14. This was my first chance to get the wailing wall – bought 3 for both the bonus % and decor for THOH.

  15. The pet cemetery has not shown up in my store. Its because I already have the clawing zombie cat😣 Now i cant get the cemetery or the zombie dog😭

    Very annoyed.

  16. quite of few of the Wailing Wall already when we can get from crafting.
