Should I Spend Donuts On Esme Delacroix & Books! Books! And Additional Books!?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Love is in the air!  Although maybe not so much in the Simpsons’ household…
Love and War is the latest event to hit our pocket-sized towns, and it’s an all-out romance novel affair!  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.

  1. The building is from a classic episode, had to get this 😀

  2. I grabbed her! Nice looking combo with some fun looking tasks.

    I’ve also grabbed the PaZiffic Princess and the Tongue-and-Kiss point thing.

    My question is, is it worth buying the young Marge/Young Artie combos, are they skins or fully characters? Not a huge fan of multiple of the same characters wandering around town personally. Does the rink or the garden have any permanent tasks for other springfielders?

    Would do hers be better spent on the mystery boxes?

      Hi Avova I don’t know if you already bought these or not. Young Marge with Roller Rink and Young Ziff with Sculpture Garden are separate, young versions of themselves. I like them. You can pretend they are some young cousins or relatives. Young Marge looks very much like Annika Van Houten, the cousin of Milhouse. I got young Ziffie randomly from some other event box and his Garden is beautiful – and he has 2 interesting tasks – one is painting a portrait of Marge in his garden and the other is dancing. Very fun.

  3. Grabbed it directly because it helps for the full event and I liked the character in the episode

  4. grabbed it because I built my town based off the published map and this building was on that map

  5. 3 permanent Character Tasks at Books! Books! And Additional Books (Building), 2 Visual Character Tasks (very good), not Voiced (Tress MacNeille hasn’t voiced anything in this Game App), but Esme Delacroix is worth spending Sprinkles on! 😀👍🏻
