Should I Spend Donuts On the Buck Stops Here Returning Content?

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!) Of course, by now, we all know that a new mini-event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with returning 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 Capital City Capitol Building (w/ Rose Quimby), Preppers Compound (w/ Lloyd), U.S. Capitol Building, or the crowds to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

Leaves stores January 22nd

Item: Capital City Capitol Building and Rose Quimby
Cost: 150 Donuts
Earns: $200, 20xp/12hrs
Previous Post: Should I Buy
What Does It Do:
 Full character/building combo
My Opinion On It Now:
 Opinion remains unchanged on this one.  It’s a take it or leave it character.  150 donuts is pretty standard these days for a building/character combo.

Leaves stores January 22nd

Item: Preppers Compound and Lloyd
Costs: 150 Donuts
Earns: $90, 10xp/4hrs
Previous Post: Should I Buy
What Does It Do:
 Full character/building combo
My Opinion On It Now:
 Another take it or leave it character. 150 donuts is pretty standard these days for a building/character combo.

Leaves stores January 22nd

Item: US Capitol Building
Costs: 75 Donuts
Earns: $150, 13xp/8hrs
Previous Post: Should I Buy
What Does It Do:
 Building for Springfield, with no permanent tasks
My Opinion On It Now:
 Still a pass in my opinion.  Too expensive for no interaction there (and even then it’s still overpriced)

 

Leaves stores January 22nd

Item: Rude Crowd/Cheering Crowd
Costs: 10 Donuts Each
Earns: Nothing
What Does It Do: 2 different crowds for Springfield, tap and they have different poses
My Opinion On It Now:
 They’re 10 donuts each, if you like them and have a need/purpose for them grab them.  Otherwise pass completely, as they offer no benefit (other than visually) for Springfield)

What are your thoughts on the returning content?  Any items you’ve picked up?  Passed on?  Placement in Springfield?  Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. There are many stonecutter costumes available.
    Is it possible there will be a stonecutters event in the future? A repeat of the older event would be nice.

  2. Disco Stu’s Stone Cutter costume just showed up in the store. However, I already have the costume from an earlier event. I don’t have Stu. Will buying the costume I already have give me Stu?

  3. Karon….waaaaaaaaaaaay too many questions to answer here. The quote was just me, yelling at my screen.

    The news is full of gridlock…which is where my frustration comes from. And no…shutdowns aren’t good for anyone, much less those who are working without pay. So, that is why I place my Capitol building in the swamp…where it belongs…as it has since 1996.

    That is enough politics. If we open this can of questions, we are doomed to talk about little else. We’ll let Brockman take care of the bloviating in our games.

    • Thank You Patric for your kind reply! Sorry to mention politics; It’s just that we get limited information on the “nitty gritty” of why things happen as they do in the USA on our news.

  5. Capital City Capitol Building w/ Rose Quimby – basically the only returning Premium of interest to me (worth Kem Farming for) … if Preppers Compound w/ Lloyd was your preference? that’s ok, it’s another Combo I didn’t see available from a Mystery Box you can enjoy! 👍

    I’m sure enough will agree that 75 🍩 ‘s for the U.S. Capitol Building and 10 🍩’s for Rude Crowd / Cheering Crowd are a definite pass! 😂

  6. I’m gonna pass on the pass on the buildings and characters since I thought they might’ve reappeared with a rebate though there is always a 3rd time to be lucky and they re-appear for a third time with a rebate. I will get some more of the rude crowds since I remember they cost more to craft during Homerpalooza than the cheering crowds did. Off topic but I’m not sure if I am the first person to notice but did TSTOAddicts get updated today?

    Really tempted to get the Capitol. Big fan of politics so almost a must buy for me. Wish it had any other upsides except it being the Capitol…

  8. Thanks a lot Alissa! An year has passed, but – in this case – nothing changed. All I see is NOPE, NOPE NOPE 😂
