Should I Spend Donuts On the Cursed Tomb and Mummy (Amenhotep)?

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 the Cursed Tomb and Mummy to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this mummified combo to your town…

Building/Decoration: Cursed Tomb
Character: Mummy (Amenhotep)
Donut Cost: 145 Donuts
Size: 
7×8
Earns:
$200, 22xp/8hrs
Conform-O-Meter: 
Vanity +400
Can Be Placed:
grass|pavement|dirt

Leaves stores November 14th

Pros
-Comes with a questline
-Earns Pickaxes and event currency at Holy Forge (premium rate, so 3 pickaxes)
-Cursed Tomb is animated when in use (Tomb door opens, lights flicker)

Cons
-Not voiced
-It’s a Mummy, not exactly canon in Springfield (although what is these days…)

Final Thought
Premium:
Not a bad pickup for the event.  His outdoor tasks are pretty funny and he’s helpful for the event itself (although who needs the help at this point?). Not a bad premium pickup.

Freemium:
Like many other characters with this event, this isn’t a bad pickup.  It’s fairly standard for what we’ve seen. However, given the choice between the Mummy and Beatrice, I’d choose Beatrice.  The Mummy isn’t a great fit in Springfield (aesthetically) and the tomb earns cash and XP..instead of a bonus %.

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 likely be picking this one up.  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…

Amenhotep’s Permanent Tasks:

Task Length Earns Location
Read the Sunday Comics 1hr $105, 26xp Cursed Tomb
Enjoy Modern Gadgets 4hrs $260, 70xp Outside/Visual
Hoard Possessions 8hrs $420, 105xp Outside/Visual
Sweep Sand From the Tomb 12hrs $600, 150xp Cursed Tomb
Prepare a Sacrifice 24hrs $1000, 225xp Cursed Tomb

What are your thoughts on Amenhotep and the Cursed Tomb?  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. Loved the look of the tomb, and figured I may as well complete the last monster couple, so yeah.

  2. Got him to complete my monster collection. Plus, I do have an Egyptian section.

    Just noticed but what is with the haunted crossroads? Says unlocks during act 2 level 4 but it never unlocked for me. I’ve got everything now and was looking to see what I wanted to craft more of and seen that I was never able to craft it.

    Nice to have a Building that generates XP and $ vs just Bonus % (the Pyramid isn’t too large) and sending Amenhotep (Mummy) on his Segway is a lol 😂

    worth the Sprinkles 👍

  6. Picked him up since he is a classic monster and like I said before the classic monsters are a great addition to the town.

  7. Even though not needing them for the event (though also not disliking being able to enjoy over one week of bonuts after finishing the Act 3 on Monday), I picked up both Amenhotep and Mr. Werewolf so that I have all three couples.

  8. Off topic,but anyone else still having problems with their friends list dissapearing?

  9. I bought him solely because I had already bought Mister Werewolf. I felt it was only fair that all the monsters got their spouse.
    Bought Beatrice to thought. If I had to chose I would also pick Beatrice over him.

    • This was my logic as well, plus once you finish the prize track it finishes the little character collection, so there’s that. But definitely, if I was going to only get one, Beatrice is the better deal.

  10. I agree, it’s not needed. But not a bad pickup 😊

  11. I unlocked Mama Mummy this morning, but I won’t be picking up Papa Mummy. Time to get caught up on my level quests. I still have to finish level 22 and half my level 30s. Why does every quest use Bart, Homer, and Lisa? That’s what I get for leaving the game for a while, forgetting my password, and not having access to the email account associated with my EA account. But I am having fun with my new town.

  12. I took him, indeed he is not not really needed for the event (not at all in fact, I finished sunday morning) but i like the couples. I go on slow right now, just earning some crafting prices for my Egyptian area, but for now i consider this a break.

  13. Wouldn’t it be nice of some, or all of the Monster Couples had a task with their spouse? Or at the least, a group task that mimics the episode. A missed opportunity.
