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 Anchor Management and Don Brodka to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this security combo to your town…
Building/Decoration: Anchor Management
Character: Don Brodka
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
-Will use Anchor’s Management for Tasks (and it’s animated when in use, lights turn on and an anchor drops from the roof)
-Don is from a CLASSIC Simpsons Christmas episode, Marge Be Not Proud
-Will only help with Week 2 of the event, no help for weeks 3 and 4
This is a good buy. He’s at the (new) standard price for Combos, 150 donuts. Which is better than a lot of other combos for this event. And he’s from a classic Simpsons episode. Who can forget Don catching Bart shoplifting in Marge Be Not Proud?
I still think you’re better getting Young Marge (since she helps with the whole event), but if you’re not going to get to that 199 donut price Don is a good alternative.
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 already picked it 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…
