Should I Spend Donuts On Kirkedemious Van Houten and the Van Houten Villa?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Update time in Springfield and everything’s coming up Milhouse!  Always nice to see new content in TSTO, as the latest event has hit our games.  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 Kirkedemious Van Houten and the Van Houten Villa to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Van Houten duo to your town…

  1. When does act 2,3,4 start? Do you know the dates of when each start? Or at least act 2?

  2. Hi all, wondering if anyone will invest in the 300 donut store purchase to get the bonus character. I’m not even sure who it is. Happy tappin’………🌻🧡X

  3. I think the Van Houten’s are all inbred. Maybe. If I understood some of the jokes in this update and Annika episode correctly.

  4. So Kirkedemious is Kirk’s ancestor, and it seems that he founded the Southern Cracker factory… But doesn’t Luann’s side of the family own the cracker factory? I’m confused.

    • I think the Van Houten’s are all inbred. Maybe. If I understood some of the jokes in this update and Annika episode correctly.

    • In the episode “Let’s Go Fly a Coot”, Milhouse said Kirk and Luann are cousins but he didn’t say they are first, second or third cousins or if they are even once or twice removed 1st, 2nd or 3rd cousins.

  5. Of course I spent the sprinkles on Kirkedemious Van Houten w/the Van Houten Villa (he may not be voiced, but his ‘side quest’ involving the Cracker Factory & the Wiggums is too funny!) 👍🏻

    An extra help obtaining Event Currency, a swell looking Estate (use those extra Pier Tiles, make a Van Houten Island), you might as well invest in the new Premiums ’cause the Event Prizes alone are not going to cut it! 😉

  6. bought him right away… lol

  7. I picked it up. I like the look of the villa and it’s not very big if your worried about space. Plus the events we have had over the past year have turned into being all about new premium content for this tapper! So far I’m ok with this event, poor Milhouse needed his moment in the spotlight! Happy Day Friends and Happy Tappin! 🍩🍩🍩🍩🍩 Mmm update donuts!!

  8. SIB: yes. The dialogue in the quest line is hilarious (so far). Besides, you’ll need him to complete the van houten collection.
