Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Back to back mini-events in Springfield! At least we have new content, right? I think they only thing we can be sure of these days from EA is to expect the unexpected. I don’t think any of us thought another 2-week mini-event would follow State of Despair, but here we are. It’s reunion time for Marge, Homer, and the rest of the Springfield High Gang. The perfect opportunity to drop a premium item in our games, and leave us wondering if we should spend our sprinkles on it.
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 Prom Photo Booth to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this flasher to your town…
Building/Decoration: Prom Photo Booth
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Earns: 2.5% Bonus on all cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +200
Can Be Placed:grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt|beach
WDTCF?: “The Way We Was” S2 E12
Leaves stores March 26th
If you don’t already have them, this will appear in your store with combinations of Young Marge, Artie and Barney. You must have all 3 to use this decoration. Pricing for those combos varies. 150 is the price for the booth alone.
-Comes with permanent tasks for Young Homer (in prom tux), Young Marge, Young Artie, and Young Barney. 4hrs (Homer’s task is alone, while Marge, Artie and Barney have a group task)
-Amusing animation for the tasks at the photo booth, including Barney streaking.
-Very expensive for what it is/does
-Bonus % is terrible for donuts spent
-Tasks cannot be combined. Either you send Young Homer or the group of Marge, Artie, and Barney.
Premium or Freemium:
It’s the only new premium item with this event. It’s not awful, but it’s not great. If you have the booth as a stand-alone 150 donuts really isn’t worth it. However, if you have the ability to get the young characters with the booth then it’s a little bit better of a deal. Being that it’s the only new item with the event, it’s a total tossup for either Premium or Freemium players.
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’m really on the fence. It’s not great. Doesn’t seem worth the 150 donuts to me. 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 questlines it comes with..
Teen Homer starts
Prom Time Homer: Alone on prom night, this is sadder than the saddest song I’ve ever heard. Dad was right, women are trouble. But TV never breaks your heart, except for the reruns.
Make Prom Time Homer Try to Stay in Focus- 4hrs, Earns $260, 70xp
Prom Time Homer: *sigh* It’s no use. I want to be mad at Marge, but just thinking about her makes me smile. There’s gotta be something I can do to win her back! I can’t give up yet…Or at least not until I thoroughly humiliate myself. It’s the Simpson way!
Young Artie starts
Young Artie Ziff: Marge my dear, let us commemorate our Night To Remember by taking a picture for our future children’s scrapbooks.
Young Marge: Children?! I think you’re getting a little ahead of yourself.
Young Artie Ziff: But Marge, don’t you see how lucky you are? Being by my side, your fortune is guaranteed.
Young Marge: But I have dreams and ambitions. I want to travel the world, or maybe go to college!
Young Artie Ziff: Dear Marge, all you have to do is remain beautiful and keep clinging to the arm of Artie Ziff. What higher goal could a young lady have?
Young Barney: Wait! I want to be in the picture too! I’m not dressed yet — I hope nobody minds!
Make Young Springfielders Pose for a Prom Photo- 4hrs, Earns $780, 210xp
Young Artie Ziff: Really now, these little love slaps of yours are getting out of hand.
Young Marge:You’re the one who’s getting out of hand, Artie! And there’s no love in those slaps, so don’t pretend otherwise!
Young Artie Ziff: Ah Marge, you have so much to learn about the devil-may-care charm of Artie Ziff! Now how about some punch?
Young Marge:That may get served up sooner than you think!
Young Barney: Wow, they’ve got some problems to work out. I’m glad I’ve got my life all sorted out.
Remember, you cannot do these questlines simultaneously, Only 1 can use at a time, either prom time homer or Artie, Marge and Barney group.
