Should I Spend Donuts On Santa Snake?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In our games, the snow is falling and TSTO is calling yoo hoo!  It’s the most wonderful time of the year Tappers, Christmas in TSTO! 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 Santa Snake to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this bell ringing conman to your town…


Character/Skin: Santa Snake
Donut Cost: 85 Donuts

Leaves stores January 12th

The Rundown:
-Premium costume for Snake
-Comes with questline
-Visual Tasks are 1 and 4hrs
-Already earns event currency as Snake, this adds no benefit for event currency earning.

What Did I Do?:
This is a pretty standard price for a character skin these days, but I’m still not thrilled with it.  On the fence with this one, not sure if I’ll pick it up or not.

Here’s a look at the tasks…

  1. Love it, got it, ugly Xmas sweater must have, I’m just still salty they gave Snake these 2 boring jobs as animations, instead of making him Fight other Santas, Mug elves and Recruit Racoons for his gang! I want my raccoon animation HMMMPPPFFFHHH

  2. Love it got it! Love my bad boy Snake elfing it up in his ugly Xmas sweater!!! I I love funny costumes for all the Springfield characters and I like Xmas skins and facades. So this is a must have to compliment Snake’s house and his Xmas facade from the prize track.

  3. I got it because after nearly 10 years of playing, what else am I going to spend donuts on? 🙂

    • Good point…. after my earlier decision to _not_ get this, I reversed course. Not just the “what else?” argument, but also “get the whole set of characters” and “fun animations”… OK, EA, you win this round….

  4. I was on the fence with this one but the animations do look funny and it’s in the character collection. Bonus that other tasks are in holiday buildings. Has a questline and hopefully some funny catchphrases. 85 donuts is about 5 minutes of bloodmobiling, so yeah, I’ll pick it up.

  5. Not a huge fan of this skin, I pass for this one. Snake is not one of my favorite character.

  6. I got him just to fill his space in the
    Holiday Whodunnit character collection.


    Bought it, I like this skin, he will wear it every Christmas, I try to keep him with his cowboy skin on but when he has tasks to do he reverts back to his normal skin, 🤓😎🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

  8. Santa Snake – I got the 🍩’s so Yep I spent the sprinkles (and I lol 😂 at the fact we got so many 🎅🏻 ‘s in Springfield now!) but I wouldn’t consider this a priority vs the Premium Character Combos in Act 1 and Act 2 (I have no idea what the rest of this Event will offer up!)

    Happy Winter Solstice ❄️

  9. I may pick him (it) up towards the end of the event.
    I already have a premium skin for Snake, so no bonus there.

  10. I’m gonna skip this one… I’d only get it if I was a “completist”. As it is, I don’t use 99% of the skins I have, or 90+% of the tasks available, I just don’t think of them. If it had a _way_ cool animation, sure, but these days I tend to recycle a lot of the same tasks. But that’s just me!
