  1. I like this decoration and originally thought only one was available but I’m glad there was three available (thanks Alissa and Noob_sauce37 for confirming it was 3 over a week ago), the wreath, flowers and shirt are a nice detail. I placed these in Capital City with the zipper museum and bird feeder. This would’ve made a good item to purchase multiples of with cash like some of the items from the Christmas event. 🙂 💐👕💮

  2. I miss old school prizes that came with a small bonus percentage.

    Guess it’s off to farming and hiding vans and signs for me…

    I wish we could buy more, I think I will put this in the school yard for Shelbyville Elementary.

  4. Willie: They sign the permission slips. They know the risks.

    2nd best line ever. 1st is still Ralph’s “Eight two banana” when answering the 911 line.

  5. I’ve got the memorial and other decorations filling out my museum mile section. The museum of zippers is so opulent i thought it needed an equally grandiloquent entrance.

    When did or does this State of Despair start? We have nothing about upgrading to this event.

  7. Kinda of a random comment but if anyone is interested, I found that the excavation thing of the past Halloween event sometimes drops an item that has 0.2% bonus, I know that it sounds very low but I already got 60 of then just by playing the minigame kind of once a day since January, so it’s already 12% for practically no time spent and not even one donut.

    • Which thing?

      • Rusty Shackleford

        He means the flaming torches that you get from dig site. I have a decent amount but it doesn’t seem to payout that much for me. Still, I’ll take free bonus% items wherever I can find them.

        • For me it doesn’t payout much, but when it does it does in clumps. I got 3 flaming torches this morning, but probably none for the past week before that.
          On balance over time, the dig site has given me more bonus % than the insanity cauldron.

    Skinner the edgelord.
    Also, after a week’s hiatus, we go into a state of despair

  9. Field Trip Memorial

    Well, I placed all 3 down just to finish the 2 Parter involving Groundskeeper Willie and Principal Skinner …. and then stored ’em! I may take ’em out of Storage IF I find a use for ’em that does not compromise my grand total that’s allowed in Springfield (choose wisely what you have out so you don’t get the “maximum warning” (lol)! 😀

    Can we get a YES for that Mystery Box? 👍
    I hope EA has a St Patrick’s one next! 🍀
