Should I Spend Donuts On Monster’s Castle and Frankenstein’s Monster and Julienstein?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Halloween is back in Springfield!  Yes, the water is murky, the screen is slightly darker, monsters and minions are roaming our towns…is there anything better than Halloween 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 Monster’s Castle and Frankenstein’s Monster and Julienstein to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Stein trio to your town…

$300, 30xp/12hrs

Pros
-Comes with 2 questlines, each character has their own
-Will use the Monster’s Castle for tasks
-TWO FULL characters
-Frankenstein’s Monster is Voiced

Cons
-Julienstein is not voiced
-Will not help with the event, no task at Holy Forge no currency earning tasks

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
I like this combo regardless of player status.  It’s two characters and a building for a decent price point.  I think this is worth the pickup

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’ll be picking this up before the event ends.  But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).

  1. I have so many castles. So many. I’ll probably pass on this.

    Have to do it, as “Bride of Frankenstein” is one of my all-time fave Universal movies of the Whale era, and it just looks…delightful! I’m the occasional bonut farmer, but also like to throw a li’l cash at EA once a year to thank them for years of gaming enjoyment. Since this Halloween 300 came with Witchy wonders, that was all to the good. Hope I can find room for this near Burns’ and the Mad Doctor’s Castles- will be icing on the 🎂!

    I love it, mostly for the way the castle looks when in use 🙂 I feel like one of the monsters looses a cool visual after they complete the quest line, but may be mistaken…. I do really like the castle though, and redid my castle area to accommodate the new one.
    Thank you, Allissa, I know u have been super busy with lots of sibs and such, so I bought this one b4 the sib, but I still enjoy knowing your thoughts 🙂 I actually wonder how u have time 4 your non-Simpsons life. We r grateful for the sibs even if we sometimes get impatient and take u for granted, and Iapologize for that. thanks again. 🙂

  4. Would it kill EA to give us some more 24-hour visual tasks?
    I’ll probably pick them up towards the end of the event.

  5. I liked this combo as soon as I saw it, and bought shortly after. Decent price for 2 characters, the building was kind of a bonus for me. (Would have grabbed the pair, even without the building)

  6. I’m a KEM farmer, I can easily buy this combo but I won’t because

    a) they are not central figures of Springfield &

    b) I love a good bargain (I can easily see them being offered in a Mystery box or at rebate within a year’s time)

    Saving my farmed bonuts for the upcoming Halloween mystery box, Black Friday deals & Winter event 🙂 🙂

  7. Monster’s Castle / Frankenstein’s Monster \ Julienstein

    I have not spent the Sprinkles on this Building / Characters Combo, but I probably will during Act 3 (after I’ve obtained all 3 Mummies) as their Tasks look funny.

    It’s been rewarding obtaining all 3 Premiums (Vampires, Werewolves), I’m sure the Mummies will earn Event Currency at Premium Rate as well.

    I’ve steered clear of most Premiums, except for Tongue Kiss Point and those Discounted Trees (can’t say no to the extra Bonus %).

    These Characters (and Count Dracula), their Building should’ve been Premium and earning Event Currency (and Pickaxes). EA did offer some great new stuff this time …

  10. Their outside tasks are stationary or do they wonder? Example, President Lincoln outside his house compared to drunken chef stumbling around?

  11. ALF in Pog form

    I’ve been meaning to ask, regarding this site; images start out normal sized but then get resized to a much smaller image ratio, once the rest of the site is done loading.
    Is this a setting in WordPress?
    This is the only WordPress based site that does this to me. Other sites that use WordPress do not do this.

  15. I figured since all the classic monsters were put in the game,,, Frankenstein & the Mrs. wouldn’t look weird. Having the Dracula’s,,Werewolves & Mummies (soon,anyways) they won’t be so out of place. So I went ahead & got them with no regrets. I just started casual KEM farming,,so what the hay.

    Wish that if you complete a collection, they award some donuts.

    • I’ve thought the same thing! Doesn’t even have to be a big amount,, either. Would make more people a bit more motivated to complete then,,imo.

    • I feel the same …already have lots of castles (most in storage all year except at Halloween) and this will be back at a discount next year. Would just go into storage till then anyway.👻
