Should I Spend Donuts On Dr. Griffin (the Invisible Man) and the Invisible House?

Happy Halloween Tappers!

I hope your day is full of treats and limited tricks!

Gather ’round the tapping device everyone, it’s update time in TSTO! As Halloween is alive and well in our pocket-sized towns!  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 Dr. Griffin (the Invisible Man) and the Invisible House to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this invisible combo to your town…

Building/Decoration: Invisible House

Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Size:
5×7
Earns:
$200, 22xp/8hrs

Pros
-Helps with the event (Week 2), earns a special premium rate
-4 and 12 hr visual tasks, and they’re pretty amusing
-Comes with a questline
-The invisible house has a unique look to it. (Kind of looks like a snow house) And it is see-through
-Krusty has a permanent 4hr job there, “Attend an AA Meeting”

Cons
-Not voiced

Final Thought
This is a fun character.  His tasks are amusing, and he helps with the event.  Other than that it’s a standard character/building combo, with event currency tasks.  If you like him, grab him, otherwise pass.

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 tasks…

Task Length Earns Location
Party With Monster Friends 1hr $105, 26xp Fogbury Cemetary or Draculas Castle or Invisible House or Brown House

  1. Thanks a lot Alissa! I bought it because:
    – it’s peculiar
    – reasonable price
    – cool concept

    Furthermore, I tend to buy at full price even if I’m pretty sure it’ll come in future Mystery Boxes, because when I emptied the Yearbook, I had 200+ quests at the same time (yikes) and I try to NOT repeat the experience 😂

  2. Still can’t believe I almost DIDN’T buy the god character, is totally worth it just for the payout for the 24 hour task.

    • At first glance it seemed to me like the payout of the 24h task did not take my bonus % into account, anyone else notice that? It pays 777,777 cash without a multiplier, at my current mutliplier of around 2100% it should be more like 16+ million. I’ll have to check at a later time because atm god is farming hearts 😉

    Picked up the Invisible Man immediately. After reading Sandytoes, will now have to go add some holo plants…what a great idea! 🙀
    I did finish placing Haagen Death, tho, but need some ideas on creepy flavors…any ideas?

  7. Happy Halloween!! I’ve been playing tapped out since 2013. Haven’t spent a dime on this game (other than a $15 iTunes gift card I got for my birthday many years ago). I have just recently cleared out the Yearbook Mystery Box. Now I have no clue what to do with the game. I guess my question is… What is left to do outside of the events?!

    I would love for them to bring GGR back for those of us who missed it. Really needing more land tokens. Maybe that will bring back the fun for me. Building/designing was my favorite part of this game. 😦

  8. Happy Halloween / Blessed Samhain Everybody (this is our El Dia de Los Muertos)🎃🔥

    Thank you for the post, Alissa (I forgot to mention the amusing visual Tasks – trust me, not he’s voiced, but he’s worth the sprinkles for everything in this Character/ Building Combo) 😀👍

    I ♥️ the transparent house (and I 🖤 Classic Universal Horror) and be safe trick or treating (not from car trunks), or passing out obnoxious candy (I’m giving krabby patties) ! 😉🤘

  9. I’m a huge fan of Universal Horror movies so I spent the donuts as soon as I saw the character. It would be fun to have a combined task were all the classic monsters terrorized Springfield Monster Squad Style.

  12. I spent some donuts on him, but I can’t seem to find him or his house.

  13. The donut bug is still not fixed! I tried purchasing the truckload/$19.99 package, twice! Then for sh*ts & giggles, I tried the $49.99 package, low and behold, no donuts!! Yet I’ve been charged the $89.97! I’ve contacted EA game support, they are no help. All they want are screen shots of the purchase and then you still get no where with them. Apple won’t refund because it’s a missing content/game error. I either want my missing donuts or my money, otherwise I’m permanently deleting this game from my phone!

        Give them all the details (what App Store, your device, the amount, etc)

        Don’t use EA website (server issues)

        Do file complaints at your App Store (contact your bank / card to initiate refunds)

        EA is getting the hate from every player on every platform (PC Console Mobile) and they earned it!

      EA is getting so much hate everywhere on every platform (PC, Console, Mobile) with every Game – they deserve it!

      MSG:Erika – I am experiencing the exact same problem. I have purchased the Halloween bonus pack of donuts 6 times. I also contacted EA, provided the screen shots, and have gotten 0 help. But you can get a refund through iTunes, you just have to slightly change the options you choose. They refund it automatically, which is kind of surprising to me. But when you are in your purchase history
      and go to report a problem, instead of selecting Didn’t Receive or Unable…., select I’d Like to request a refund instead. I have done that and verified it work. If you need additional help let me know. The frustrating thing is I am literally trying to give them money. I like supporting the game and was hoping to purchase some Divine Intervention but so far no luck.
