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 Box Factory to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Springfield classic to your town…

Donut Cost: 65 Donuts
Earns: $200, 22xp/8hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +400
Can Be Placed: grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt

-Animated when in use, lights on
-Comes with a 2 part questline
-A permanent 4hr premium task for Martin, Run Away From Change.
-Pricey for what it is/does
-Pretty generic looking
Premium or Freemium:
This is a premium “on the fence” item for me. It’s a classic building, but at that price tag, I think it’s overpriced. While it’s nice that it has a permanent task for Martin, I do think it’s better to wait on this until it comes back at a discounted price.
I’d pass and wait for this to come back at a big discount. It’s too pricey, in my opinion, for what it is/does.
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 the questline it comes with…
No Assembly Required Pt. 1
Skinner: Martin, since you’ve sacrificed your social life to get the best grades in class, I’m letting you pick the class trip.
Martin: Wow, such a sacred educational responsibility.
Bart: Martin, buddy! Want to play naive astronauts and hostile aliens with me at recess? Say, have I ever told you how much I’ve wanted to visit a real space ship factory?
Milhouse: Martin, take any snack from my lunch! Y’know, I hear the video game studio is nice this time of year…
Martin: Why waste our field trip on such high tech endeavors when we can witness the old time charm of the Box Factory!
Bart And Milhouse: *groans*
Make Martin Lead a Class Field Trip- 4hrs, Earns $260, 70xp
No Assembly Required Pt. 2
Bart: Whoa! Look at all these drones! I bet I can use one to prank Homer.
Martin: What’s happened to all the history? The elegant simplicity of folding generic boxes by hand?!
Milhouse: Look at me! I’m a package being delivered.
Skinner: Bart! Stop trying to send Milhouse away with free two-day delivery!
Martin: Hell is empty, and all the demons are here.
Make Martin Run Away from Change- 4hrs, Earns $260, 70xp
Skinner: Well students, in order to justify this as educational, I have to give everyone a grade — A’s all around! Everyone, except Martin that is. Since he ran away he’s getting an incomplete and failing this assignment.
Martin: But that will ruin my perfect GPA! I’ll never be able to go on after this!
