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
Earns: $300, 30xp/12hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +20
Can Be Placed:grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
Leaves stores November 14th
-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
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.
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:
|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|
What are your thoughts on the Voodoo Queen and Voodoo, Hexes, & Curses? 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!
Bought her immediately. Love the look of the character, her caravan & her visual tasks. This Voodoo lass is a win!
Did I miss a SISDO on Monster’s Castle/Frankenstein’s Monster/Julienstein?
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 😂
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.
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!
This and Beatrice were my two donut pick ups from this event too. Very pleased!
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.
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
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.
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.
I bought her because I could. She is in the sideshow part of my concert area. She likely also also sells nitrous from her tent.
So many great places for the trailer…next to the hypnotist’s tent at the county fair, part of the the bars/strip club area, down on the beach with Mindy sun bathing…will be hard to choose😁👍.
Tried the beach…😎
Mine is “tent to tent” as you mentioned first!
I placed it in Charmers Market. Also noting that the Great Raymondo’s house is now one of my favourite buildings.
24 hour visual task? Yes!
I was on the fence, but opted for not buying 😊
