Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
We’re a few days into 2019 and it’s time for our first update of the year! Not Yet Spring Cleaning, the latest mini-event in Springfield, is full of content we’ve been asking for! (Springfield U, Alice Glick, Land Tokens..to say the least!) And of course, an all-new mini-event provides a great excuse for EA to throw premium content at 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 Mighty Pigs Practice Rink and Lewis Clark to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this icey combo to your town…
Building/Decoration: Mighty Pigs Practice Rink
Character: Lewis Clark
Donut Cost: 165 Donuts
Earns: 4.5% bonus on all cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +200
Can Be Placed: grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
Leaves stores January 22nd
-Helps with the event, earns a special premium rate
-Lewis has a task at the ice rink
-Lisa has a permanent task at the ice rink (walk to practice, 4hrs)
-Not only does this come with a full questline for Lewis, but it also comes with a 2 part questline for Lisa.
-Pretty good bonus % offered
-The rink is animated when in use, hockey players appear and play
-Seeing that 15 donut spike in this price combo, compared to 150 donuts combos usually are these days (still super high compared to 100-125 they were “back in the day”
Outside of the Golden Goose Realty, this is the best premium item offered with this event. Lewis is a classic character, the ice rink is a classic location..it just works. If you have the donuts go for this one…or wait until he appears later down the road in a Mystery Box or with a rebate…
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…

Daddy’s Little Angel Pt. 1
Lisa: Hurry up, Dad! I’m going to be late for hockey practice!
Homer: We’ll go once I finish watching Flanders’ video on ViewTube.
Lisa: I never knew you supported Ned so much.
Homer: Pff, I’m only watching it so I can “dislike” it at the end.
Lisa: Looks like I’m going to have to take matters into my own hands if I ever want to get to practice.
Homer: You’re going to walk?
Lisa: No, I’m going to tell Mr. Flanders to make shorter videos.
Make Lisa Teach Flanders to Edit- 8hrs, Earns $275, 70xp
Lisa: So, you see, Mr. Flanders, you don’t need this footage of yourself setting up the mic for eight minutes.
Ned: But how will people track my emotional journey??
Daddy’s Little Angel Pt. 2
Lisa: Come on, Dad! If I’m late for hockey practice again, Coach Wiggum’s going to bench me!
Homer: Gotta finish Flanders’ ViewTube videos!
Lisa: How are you still watching them? I made him edit them down to two minutes.
Homer: Yeah, and now they’re tight and punchy! I love them and have to watch them all!
Lisa: Ugh, why am I so good at giving editorial notes?!
Make Lisa Walk to Practice- 4hrs, Earns $260, 70xp
Wiggum: Lisa, why are you so tired already?
Lisa: Because I had to walk all the way here.
Wiggum: Sounds like you’re not managing your time very well. You should watch this video called “The Crime of Wasting Time.” It’s by…
Lisa: Don’t say Flanders.
Wiggum: Oh, so you’ve seen it! Such tight editing!
