Golden Goose Realty PSA

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.

  1. This is a nice little loophole but I wouldn’t get too excited about it. I think there’s a good chance that EA will block it, for example by putting a cap on how many stored tokens you can have. (Maybe there already is one and no one has found it yet…)

  4. I have a square of land in the lower right that hasn’t unlocked for purchase with land tokens or money. I am guessing this might be “reserved” by EA for a future area of effect quest line?

  5. And here’s the very cool thing… 😎

    If WAY in the future you have a bunch of collected land tokens and EA has not opened up more land you then buy the last land square.

    After that you can sell back your unused collected land tokens and get 12 donuts for each one! That’s 8,760 donuts per year to treat as an emergency donut savings account, just for tapping on Golden Goose Realty twice a day!

    Makes the Donut Factory EA tried to get us to buy look PATHETIC value for money by comparison! 😉

    Thanks to 74hands at TOuk for this tip ❤

    • Except it will be many months before I buy up all the land tokens and then can start on reserve, .let alone have a stash worth cashing in, meanwhile my adorable little factory has already happily been churning out donuts for me daily. I put the donut factory next to the playdough factory (now GGR too) so they reinforce each other. I would forget to play Where’s Maggie for long periods of time. Not anymore. No regrets on the factory.

  6. To avoid using the last land tile, in one of my games I am using my ghost ship to “cover” an unclaimed land tile.

  7. While golden goose realty is pretty dang exciting, I’m a little more excited about the prospect of finally getting the stonecutters content. I have been wanting it since I bought the stonecutters day care all those years ago.

    I’m just not so sure about dumping a huge amount of my hard earned sprinkles on something that may never be used in a future event 🤔

    I’m really on the fence with this one 🤷‍♂️ and am hoping someone can nudge me in the right direction

    • Purchase the donuts offered with a bonus.
      450 in total. Then get it all 😊

      LAND tokens are here to stay so the Golden Goose token building is in my opinion a must buy regardless of the level you are playing.

      The stonecutters are from an iconic episode and one of my favourite things in the game so agree with you there.

  14. Ok, I am confused.
    You can convert land tokens to donuts once you have unlocked all the land, but you have to keep one land tile closed.
    How is this possible?

    • Because you’re misunderstanding what’s being said.

      You cannot covert land tokens to donuts until you’ve unlocked all of the available land. However, you cannot earn any more land tokens (via the Golden Goose) once you’ve unlocked all of the available land.

      Therefore, keep 1 land square open to continue earning land tokens to build up a good supply of them. Then, once you feel you’ve earned enough, you can convert them to donuts if you so choose (by buying up the last square of land)

  16. So….this bulding continues to work even after this event right? Til land is gone? I have lots i can still buy with cash and i have about 65 tokens. Is this still a good thing to buy and hold onto til u really need to use it?

    • It will work, but it won’t be available for purchase.

      I have a TON of land still available to buy for cash, i still bought Golden Goose. I feel like one can never have too many land tokens, you never know when you may need them.

  17. ehm… perhaps is my bad english… but I’ve not understood well how the Golden Goose function…
    It creates 1 land token in 12 hour, ok… but I can convert them to donuts ONLY when I have unlocked the last remaining land tile? For example: I have only 1 land tile to un lock. So I wait until I have 30 land token (15 days), then I unlock it with 1 land token, the remaining 29 tokens are convertible into donuts? And then no more tokens will be crate from the building?
    Is this correct?

    • Depends on what you’re asking.

      Once you buy all of the available land your realty will no longer earn land tokens. At that point you can either cash in all your land tokens for donuts once, multiple times, keep some…up to you.

    This is a must buy, although I have sworn to minimise my donut spending until I reach my desired bonus percentage…
    One question though. If I were to buy say the disco stu outfit, would I also get disco stu if I don’t have him?

  30. So you can save up land tokens but you can only convert them once you’ve bought all the land ……… and then you can’t earn them anymore? So you get one go at splurging your collection? Hmmm. Pick your moment carefully!

    • I read this as once all land is owned the building generates cash until new land is released and then it goes back to tokens?

      So if I hold off and keep 1 tile not bought and I can then build up a pile of tokens, get that one remaining tile and convert the rest to doughnuts and wait until another row of tiles are opened, at which point the building will generate tiles again so repeat the process??

      • Since they just released over 80 tiles for purchase, I wouldn’t count on more being released with future events (like before) anytime soon….nobody knows when the next release will be. I’ll be holding on to that last unsold tile until the next land release (whenever that is) and letting the tokens pile up. Think of the tokens as a donut investment…one day you will have a windfall of donuts, you just don’t know when. If you cash them in early, you will lose out on the full value, but if you hold on to them, they will bring a shopping spree sometime in the future. 😃

    • It seems to me there may be one more complexity: it sounds like every time EA releases an update which opens up new land, it’s going to flip the switch on the Golden Goose back to producing tiles… which suggests that if you didn’t exchange your collection of tiles for donuts at some point prior to that, then you’re going to have to buy up all the newly opened land before you have the option to exchange tiles for donuts again. Rather an interesting quandary, actually.

      • fiendish thingy

        If you earn token between updates, you should have enough to buy all the new land, and still cash in a good amount for donuts, MINUS enough tokens to purchase the land in the next update.

        For example, if there are 90 days between this land update and the next one, you could earn a maximum of 180 tokens. If the next update is again 80 tiles, you would spend 81 tokens (the new tiles, plus one token for the single tile you left unpurchased to keep earning tokens) that leaves 99 tokens, and you could should cash in 19 tokens for 228 donuts, leaving 80 tokens for the next update.

        (I’m a psychology major, so someone -Safi?- please check my math!)

        Now that’s not a very good return on investment, but 80 tiles is a LOT of land, so I’m guessing either future updates will be smaller, or less frequent than the 90 days in my example. Either way we would benefit. And if they don’t release an update for a long, long time, then save up and cash in when you have enough tokens to become a Donillionaire! (Or whatever the donut equivalent of a millionaire is)

    • I guess earn them until just before an update and and then concert them to donuts. Don’t they usually release more land during updates?

      • Yes but not every update, so you could do your cash-in move only to find no new land and no more tokens from the Golden Goose.

        Why not just accumulate them and wait for an update with new land? You can then buy all but one square, or if your stash of remaining tokens is big enough for you, buy them all and cash in.
