Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Update time in Springfield! We’re all getting antsy sitting at home, so it’s nice to have an update to focus on! And highly amusing that it’s based on wrestling, when this may be how some of us are treating our families after a few months of quarantine! 😳 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 Rasputin the Friendly Russian & St. Basil’s Cathedral to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Russian combo to your town…
Building/Decoration: St. Basil’s Cathedral
Character: Rasputin the Friendly Russian
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Conform-O-Meter: Obedience +20
Can Be Placed: grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
WDTCF?: Rasputin- “Bart the Daredevil” S2, E8
St. Basil’s-“Simpson Tide” S9, E19
Leaves stores May 13th, 2020
-Helps with the event, earns a special premium rate (will earn it for the entire event)
-Comes with a questline
-Amusing animated tasks
-Krusty has a 12hr task at St. Basil’s Have A Clandestine Meeting
Like most premium combos this is an ok buy. It helps it’s the only new premium content with this event, but it’s not a bad pickup in general. Nothing screaming “BUY this immediately” and nothing screaming “stay away!” Just an ok buy.
Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and I got this almost immediately. 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…
