Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Grab your Santa hats and break out the tinsel because it’s Christmas time in Springfield! Yes the annual TSTO Christmas event has arrived in our pocket-sized towns, covering our usual perfect weather towns with a fresh blanket of bright, white, snow! 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 Cirque De Puree and the Circus Acrobat to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this high flying duo to your town…
Building/Decoration: Cirque De Puree
Character: Circus Acrobat
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Earns: $135, 15xp,4hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +20
Can Be Placed:grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
Leaves stores December 12th
-Helps with the event, earns a premium rate
-Animated when in use, spotlights go off outside of the
-Has a 12hr visual task
-Comes with his own questline, which you can wait to complete
-Not really a memorable character from the show, kind of a blip character
-Will only help during Act 1
A throwaway character from a fairly memorable Simpsons winter episode (Skinner’s Sense of Snow). He does help with the event, Act 1 only, but is still pretty forgettable. I consider this one a premium toss up. If you’re into the design of the building and like the circus grab it, plus it is 150 donuts which will be a rare price for this event, otherwise pass. He’s pretty forgettable.
Pass. Save your donuts for something better down the line.
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 picked it up. But I readily admit this time of the year makes me loopy with spending donuts, so do as I say more than as I do. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).
