Should I Spend Donuts On the Brenda and the Thai Food Factory?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Robots are coming, the Robots are coming! Get ready for a dystopian Springfield, as the robots try to take over!  Can they be stopped?  It’s up to you to save Springfield in the latest event to hit our pocket-sized towns…Rise of the Robots! 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 Brenda and the Thai Food Factory to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this completely random combo to your town…

  1. I get nearly all the update premiums, but to me, Brenda is creepy looking. Mystery box fodder.

  2. Bought it as I nearly always do to help with event currency

  3. Yo know I posted a suggestion about adding a picture gallery of any returning content that was in the YearBook once the Rundown and Turbo Tapping was sorted . . .
    Down to about 350 items and I’ll have an empty YearBook by the weekend 😊
    It’s all going in storage just for now, got 13,800-ish items while I clear it out, but other players might still find that to be a useful post.

    PS – do those who want the old theme back know how badly it was broken and it’s no longer supported ??
    If WordPress can’t help reinstate it you might end up with broken Addicts – and that would be a bad thing.

    • A lot of the issues were issues that we still have here (like seeing who liked a post). The biggest issue was the lack of a mobile version.
      The problem I have is a lot of back end issues.
