Should I Spend Donuts On the Voodoo, Hexes & Curses and the Voodoo Queen?

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 Voodoo, Hexes & Curses and the Voodoo Queen to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this doll poking combo to your town…

Building/Decoration: Voodoo, Hexes & Curses
Character: Voodoo Queen
Donut Cost: 145 Donuts
Size:
5×8
Earns: 
$300, 30xp/12hrs
Conform-O-Meter: 
Consumerism +20
Can Be Placed:
grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt

Leaves stores November 14th

Pros
-Comes with a questline
-Earns Pickaxes and event currency at Holy Forge (premium rate, so 3 pickaxes)
-Voodoo, Hexes & Curses is animated when in use
-Voodoo Queen has a 24hr visual task

Cons
-Not voiced

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

Freemium:
This isn’t a bad pickup, but it’s also not a great one.  Again, given the choice between the Voodoo Queen, the Mummy and Beatrice…I’d choose Beatrice.  And it comes down to her building (well decoration) earning 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 I’m still thinking about it).  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 her tasks…

Voodoo Queen’s Permanent Tasks:

Task Length Earns Location
Perform Voodoo for Customers 1hr $105, 26xp Voodoo, Hexes & Curses
Showoff Voodoo Magic 4hrs $260, 70xp Outside/Visual
Sell Anti Curses 8hrs $420, 105xp Voodoo, Hexes & Curses
Collect Hair Bows 12hrs $600, 150xp Voodoo, Hexes & Curses
Enjoy a Day Off 24hrs $1000, 225xp Outside/Visual

    Bought her immediately. Love the look of the character, her caravan & her visual tasks. This Voodoo lass is a win!

  3. Hexes & Curses with Voodoo Queen

    She’s not voiced (in fact? most of the Premiums for this Event are not voiced) but totally worth it for –

    extra help earning Bonuts (earned 18 so far)
    another Building that earns XP and $
    funny Visual Tasks

    ♥️ that dialogue with Homer Simpson 😂

  4. Absolute pass. It’s a 11th hour add directed to people desperately trying to finish the event. I will wait for all the premium content I did not buy (wolfman, Beatrice, and the mummy) returns in a mystery box. If she was offered at the start, perhaps.

  5. No regrets buying her! I wasn’t willing to spend the sprinkles on all the premium characters this event but this and the Beatrice purchase made me a happy camper!

    I made a great spot for her. I fenced in the weird pod thing we got earlier. Added a couple tentacle trees and put her trailer in front. Looks like she is growing a cursed garden. I haven’t started her quest yet but it will be nice to have an outside 24hr task. I use 24 hr tasks often over weekends.

  7. I have not bought her (till now). I’m on the fence, i can easily afford her, but the character doesn’t really means a lot to me. Maybe i should look to the episode she was in. I might save the donuts for black friday and x-mas.
    Also i on a kinda ‘break’ now till the next event

  8. I got her the moment she came out, Her tasks are funny the Decoration can go on my forest type location, next to the camper and Kamp Krusty. For me it feels like this event had some good pick ups on characters, even if they were one-time characters. I am looking forward to getting the NPC’s when they become available. The only thing I won’t CRAFT is the MOB.. that’s just Lazy A. Programing (LAP) in my Opinion.

  9. This was the only one I didn’t pick-up. I didn’t need anymore pick-axes, and like the weird alien pods, so doesn’t seem to fit. I loved the vamp/wolves and was left a little cold by all the sand.
