Should I Spend Donuts On Tyler Boom and the Springfield BBQ Festival?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Who’s hungry?!  In the mood for a Sweet and Sour Lasagna Burrito from General Chang’s?! Well, this is the mini-event for you!  Yes, it’s mini-event time in our pocket-sized towns, as Foodie Fight makes its way to 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.

  1. Nice combo!😁
    The ability to pass roads through the festival will be a good advantage in finding a permanent place for it in my town.

    Safi sure has an enviable stash of sprinkles. 😛

  2. About time ea fix the log in issues, Bart screen ect
    About time Springfield heights was fully open up
    About time cars were driven on roads
    About time everyone had a motor cycle task

    About time EA

    • Keith
      Agreed 💯 on everything (fix it all EA, and perhaps I may spend $9.99 on a Building – or Character – with 🍩’s deal!).👍🏻

  3. It’s so unfair not being able to log in without a code not been able to play since update the game logged me out I never log out of my game

  4. It took some finagling to get the BBQ fest into my festival/tailgate area but it looks great. I really like the string light animation.

  5. Buenos dias,

    Tyler Boom – Not Voiced but making him ‘Cook On A Hibachi’ is funny 😂

    Springfield BBQ Festival – it DOES take up Real Estate, but I have enough similar prior Content that I can create a Springfield Swap Meet / Farmer’s Market (this is a Premium Character Combo worth the 🍩’s!) 😀

    I should have his Dad (the last Prize) Scotty Boom later today!

  6. You can also put roads in the center part of the festival booths.

    • GuitarBob.

      Yep! Just like those Buildings I ❤️ begining in 2019, you can place a Road down the centre (makes designing fun!) 😀👍🏻

    • Are you able to get the roads all the way around the square and through the entrance? So far I’ve only been able to place 4 squares, 2 ea. opposite each other. I really want my characters to go in and walk around.

      • Without roads and pavement

        You can place roads around it and you can place pavement under it:

        With roads and pavement

        You can also place roads within certain parts of it as seen here:

        With roads within

        • Thanks. I figured it out. I just needed to shift the whole festival over a square so roads could line up.
