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…
