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 the Mini Golf Castle and Lee Carvallo to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this golfing combo to your town…

-Will use mini golf castle for Tasks
-Another memorable character from a classic Christmas episode, Marge Be Not Proud
-Mini Golf Castle doesn’t earn anything, not even the tiniest of bonus percentages
Premium or Freemium:
Although this isn’t a main Simpsons character, I still think this is a good buy (if you’re looking for event characters). For this event he’s priced at a standard price point, he’ll help with the event and has a fun set of tasks. Aside from the mini golf castle not generating any income (bonus % or otherwise), it’s a good buy. If you’re looking for a character from this event this is a good one to pick up.
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).
