Should I Spend Donuts on The Dalai Lama & Jogyesa Temple?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Are you ready to reach true enlightenment?  Feel an inner peace you may have been missing in your life?  Inner peace might be nice after the Robots tried to destroy Springfield… Get ready as Siddmartha comes to Springfield to bring us all a little calmness in the latest event to hit our pocket-sized towns…Springfield Enlightened! 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. I usually get the Act 4 premium day before the event ends so I have the questline to keep me entertained during the week of downtime, which makes it tough to incorporate any buildings before the Springfield Show off submission deadline. I think I’m really going to need my fellow Tappers inspiration to see how they worked this particular update into their designs.

    • I like that idea of waiting for the penultimate day to keep the fun going past the event. Too late for me now, but might try it next major event.

      I kinda plop ’til I can make space …. ❤️ the Towers Buddhist Temple Elementary School (the other New Buildings are just so Big!)

  2. Dalai Lama & Jogyesa Temple – worth the 🍩’s! I’ve been sending the Dali Lama to sunbathe on top of the Temple all day / every day! 😅 He’s Voiced and the Temple is just the right size (truthfully none of the New Buildings in this Multi-Act Event should have been so Big! what a Blessing to have one of the better Premium Combos at the end!) 👍🏻

  3. Ea asked me to sign in. Instead of asking for my password, they arr sending me a code. Is this new?

  4. I also got this combo….No brainer. I think the quest line started the day after..or 2 days after, not sure why. I completed the event today..and really enjoyed it. The last prize…whale fountain, is odd, and took me a while to find a good spot for it…water only. I’m still not really happy with its placement and it will likely change many great event tho!

  5. Hi Alissa, I just wanted to let you know that The Dalai Lama is voiced with 4 different voice clips (he was voiced by Hank Azaria in the show) and his 1 hour Sunbathe task is the second visual task (he sunbathes on top of the temple and a paparazzo appears at the back of the temple’s roof and takes a picture of The Dalai Lama sunbathing). 🙂

  6. I snapped this up but questline has not started
