UPDATE: As of April 2019 the information about saving Land Tiles no longer applies. Once you’ve earned as many tokens as available land it will convert to earning cash/xp. No matter how many land squares you leave open.
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
So a quick PSA about the Golden Goose Realty….
I know it’s super exciting to finally have the ability to get ALL of those land tiles! Feels like we’ve been waiting forever. And it’s even better that you can speed up the building to unlock land even quicker! However, I would caution you not to unlock ALL the land tiles.
It’s Really Important to Keep 1 Land Square Open/Unpurchased. Once you’ve unlocked ALL the land the Golden Goose Realty will no longer earn land tiles, it will revert to cash and XP (until new land is released).
You’re better off leaving at least 1 land square open so you can continue to earn (and build up) land tokens.
And when you’re ready you can convert your land tokens to donuts. 1 land token=12 donuts. This is done via the store (once you’ve purchased all open land)…
Shoutout to Jason for the images of the donuts in the store and the cash payout of Golden Goose and kamikaze1963443 for the image of the message in-game the appears when you’ve unlocked all of the land tiles.
Which sounds great, but remember once you unlock the ability to convert land tokens to donuts you can no longer earn land tokens.
So do yourself a favor, don’t unlock all of the land and continue earning as many land tokens as you can.
Update: Ok, so it appears some of you are still confused by what i wrote above. I went wrong assuming you all could connect the dots on your own. However, there are still many of you who prefer it just simply spelled out. So here it is in list form..
Remember, there’s no right or wrong way to do this. Or anything in TSTO for that matter. it’s a town building game. There’s no “winning” at this game.
Here’s the deal:
-if you keep 1 square of land in your Springfield unpurchased the Golden Goose Realty (which I’ll call GGR for the rest of this for ease) will continue to earn land tokens.
-You can “hoard” those land tokens for as long as you’d like. Build up 15, build up 50, build up 100, build up 1000…however many you’d like to build up.
-When you’re ready and feel like you’re ready to “cash in”. You can purchase that last square of land you’ve been saving.
-Once you purchased that last square of land your GGR will start paying out cash and XP, it will no longer pay out land tokens. (since you’ve purchased all available land)
-At this point you’ll then see an option in your store, like the one shown in the image above, to “Buy” 12 donuts for 1 land token.
-You can then convert all of those land tokens you’ve been hoarding for donuts.
-Now in theory, once more land is released GGR will go back to producing land tokens (since there’s more land available to purchase). So you can repeat this process all over again in theory when (and if) more land is released.
-The big question is will EA release more land anytime soon? Or ever? As a large swath has just been opened. I assume they will, but I’m not EA and can’t say for sure what their plans are.
Therein lies the gamble. Either you cash in quickly, or you wait it out and see. You never know when (or if) new land will be released (it’s not something we’re given a heads up on well in advance). That call is totally up to you.
If I do find out about land in advance, and I’m allowed to release it, I will let you know prior to the update hitting so you can take advantage.
