Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Gather ’round the tapping device everyone, It’s Christmas in Springfield! And there’s nothing like the holidays and a little snow to bring crazy to our pocket-sized towns! What’s in store for us this time? Well, we’re tasked with seeing if Grampa can bore Death…well to death! 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 the Hall of Vice Presidents and Aaron Burr to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Vice Presidential Combo to your town…
Building/Decoration: Hall of Vice Presidents
Character: Aaron Burr
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Earns: $300, 30xp/12hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Obedience +20
Can Be Placed: grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
WDTCF?: Both items are from “‘Tis the 30th Season” S30, E10
Now I know some are you are saying…”what does Aaron Burr have to do with Christmas?!” Well, he’s from a Christmas episode, and in that episode, animatronic Aaron Burr is located in the Kissimmee St. Nick Theme Park. Which is basically a cheaper, on a Simpson’s budget, version of Disney World. Homer and the kids surprise Marge with a trip there, after it appears she’s losing her mind a bit over Christmas.
So, while not a Christmas item…it is from a Christmas episode.
Leaves stores January 8th, 2019
-Helps with the event, earns a special premium rate
-Comes with a questline
-Has tasks at the Hall of Vice Presidents
-A Vice President, best known for shooting Hamilton.
-Not really Christmassy, but what from this event is?
Not a bad pickup. We haven’t gotten a new president in a while, so VP Burr isn’t terrible. He’ll help with the event, as a fun questline, and some silly tasks. I consider this one a tossup. It’s the end of the event, so if you’re looking to snag a character Aaron Burr may be your guy…
Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and I picked him up. I passed on Krusty, so grabbed Burr. 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…
