Should I Spend Donuts On CBGB, Nedward, and Capri Flanders?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Love is in the air friends!  Yes, Valentine’s Day is back in our pocket-sized towns!  And this time around things are going to be done, Springfieldian Style!  Of course, an all-new event means all new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

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 CBGB, Nedward, and Capri Flanders to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this hippie duo to your town…

Building/Decoration: CBGB
Character: Nedward and Capri Flanders
Donut Cost: 175 Donuts
$200, 22xp/8hrs
Gluttony +20
Can Be Placed: 
WDTCF?: Nedward and Capri- a lot of flashbacks for Ned.  Don’t see them live until “Black-Eyed, Please” S24 E15
CBGB- “Love, Springfieldian Style” S19, E12

Leaves stores February 19th

-Two characters that help with the event, earn a special premium rate…and help with all 4 tasks.
-CBG has a 4ht task at CBGB, Run His Bar
-Capri and Nedward come with their own questline
-Nedward is voiced
-CBGB has a fairly small footprint, easy to fit in Springfield

-Capri is not voiced.

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
I think this is the best buy of the event. Two characters and a building for only 25 donuts more than the “norm” pricing (150 donuts).  Plus they’ll help with ALL acts of the event.  Buy this combo.

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 their tasks…

Re-Process Reality 1hr $105, 26xp Java Server or CBGB

  1. Thanks for the great advice, as always, Alissa! I probably would have overlooked this one and the animations are so fun!

    We are very grateful for the time and energy you all put into making this silly little game much more enjoyable for all of us. May rainbows and sprinklies enliven all our neighborhoods!

  2. This short clip of CBGBs (RIP) will either leave you heartbroken, or disgusted. Maybe both

  3. CBGB, Nedward, and Capri Flanders

    Easily the best Premium Characters w/Building Combo (worth the Sprinkles in this Event) and so glad both earn Event Currency for each Act! 👍

  4. I’ll do it the same way as I did with Jesus Christ and the Heavenly Swing. I’ll wait until they are in a treasure box for 80 or 90 donuts and THEN I’ll buy ’em.

  5. oktober10aussie

    I bought these 2 straight away. Love them both!

  6. Thanks for this Alissa. I wasn’t planning on getting it. I am loving the event, but nothing caught my eye really in the store. However you’ve made me re-think it.

  7. 🇨🇦

  8. Just sayin ,,,,

  9. 🇺🇸

  10. Whoa, Ned’s mom looks… Weird? I remember her looking different.

  11. “I think this is the best buy of the event.”
    I both 💕 and agree with the way you think, Alissa. 😊

  12. Sorry, but this should have been posted earlier.

    Just sayin’.

    Let the hate begin.

  13. Ok, I give… what does CBGB stand for?

  14. Capri kind of reminds me of Rebecca Pearson (Mandy Moore) from “This Is Us” in her older guise.

  15. Instant buy 😎🧔😺

  16. First thing I bought on the event. Always aiming to get a “premium souvenir” from the bigger events. No brainer for two characters and a bar this time. Did take some time though to figure out the name of the bar… Doh!

  17. Instant buy. I’m really busy to helping with all 4 acts was a big deciding factor. Also agree good price 🍩😊🇬🇧

    • Not to whine or anything but I thought this site was a political free zone? That flag is a sign of colonialism and oppression to some of us and causes offensive during sensitive political times in England Scotland and Wales. I don’t see any reason why any flags should be flaunted.

      • I suggest you seek help if someone posting a flag emoji on a blog about the Simpsons triggers you.

        I should also note flag emojis have been posted here in the comments for nearly 6 years. Not to mention our 4th of July banner is full of American flags. And our standard banner on this site typically has Safi sporting a Canadian flag. And yet this is your first comment…ever.

        • I suggest you educate yourself rather than embarrass yourself on your own sight with such a display of ignorance. I shake my head in pity at your way of thinking, the world is bigger than America doll. First comment or not has absolutely zero significance and your point is beyond moot. I always thought your site was decent enough apart from your attitude. Learn some respect and manners.

          • Yup, the world is bigger outside of America, all the more reason we shouldn’t get upset over flag emojis…

            Remember, when you point a finger 3 more are pointing right back at you. Have a wonderful evening.

          • Seriously?????)?
            You are going off over an emoji???

            You really need to get a life. And do something more constructive with your time. If you feel so strongly about the “oppression” that you have suffered, there are far better places to express it than a blog about a silly mobile game.

            Posting anything relating to political correctness on a site based on the MOST un-PC show ever written? You’re playing the wrong game. Try Angry Birds, sounds more your style. 👋

            In the Grand Scheme of Life, I have experienced items that rank an 8+. Upon reflection, (I had no shoes, then I met a man with no feet), perhaps my experience is far less.

            This site, to me ranks a negative 5. It is piffle.

            I can only presume that your Real Life is ‘Dumping ‘ some very disturbing, traumatic events, and it is here, in this safe have, that you feel comfortable enough to ‘Vent’, to emote those negative items in your life.

            I wish you well. I hope life treats you better.
            Sending buckets of WRm Fuzzies your way and blowing away all those Cold Pricklies.

          • What on Earth do you think you’re doing? Stop being a misogynistic condescending utterly rude cretin and get a life. They work so hard and you insult them. What an absolutely vile person you are.

        Safe space is over there👉

      • This has got to be a joke but I don’t get it…can someone explain?

        Thanks for this SIB…been waiting patiently for it which is the least I can do given how much work you put into this site :).

      • That isn’t political.

  18. Had they been the younger ones i would buy them. Lousy beatniks. No sale👎

  19. I like Ned’s parents. I like CGBG. So it was an instant buy for me.
    The only strange thing to me is the combination of the characters amd building. CBGB is known for punk music, so it’s odd that it would come with hippies.

  20. I have been rewatching the Simpsons, on season 6 right now. Last week I watched Seymore Skinners Badass Song. Ned’s flashback to being a toddler and his parents, too funny. Oh, them.

  21. I’m still not sure about this. I don’t have much donuts so i have to choose carefully. Can you maybe talk about the Date Night Mystery Box? Because I’m tempted ti spend my donuts there

    • There isn’t much to say…except that it is like every other mystery box. You might get what you want…or not…at a discounted rate. it’s a gamble. Depending on what shows up in you box (which is contingent on what you already have in your town), you can do a search on the site for the original SIBs.

  22. I’m still on the fence about this but will probably end up getting it 🙂

    BTW, I keep seeing ads everywhere for pretty cool to make yourself a Simpson

  23. Thanks for the post. Instant buy. I like the bonus payout and the characters are hilarious. But it leaves me with a quandary… after the 175 sprinkle purchase I have 888 remaining during the New Year.

  24. Instant buy. The fact that they help with all four parts is what did it for me.

  25. They crack me up every time they’re on the show and I’m an old school downtown boy so yeah. CBGB’s in my town? Please!!! Note give us The Ramones, Sonic Youth and David Byrne with permanent tasks there.

  26. Thanks a lot Alissa! I bought it right away, mostly because of the event bonuses and donuts efficiency.
    I’d like to add a small “con”, though: none of them has an individual 12h task, therefore the unemployment office does not work on them. One can set it manually, but I send them to the 8h tasks, together with Stampy, Mona Simpson and C.H.U.M. 😊

  27. CBGB is in my food and drinks district
