Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Rev those engines Tappers because Hell on Wheels has arrived! Which car will be the king of the derby?  Well, it’s up to you to find out in TSTO’s latest update…Hell on Wheels!

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 No-Helmet Dupree and Springfield Demolition Derby Bundle to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this demolition duo to your town…

  1. What does the Derby do, I’m guessing we can’t put Homer’s car in there to get crushed right? Does the arena and bleachers have a funny animation at least? Like the Food truck graveyard have a raccoon running in there..

  2. I passed but to those Tappers that decided to obtain Act 4’s Premium Combo? You do get a lot for 150 🍩’s! Safi once again did a great job on the Act’s Calendar! 👍🏻

  3. I only got one set of bleachers and no sign, along with the character and property. I’ve scoured my inventory and other spots nearby, and I have no idea where they may have gone. (No big deal, as those extra parts probably would’ve been put into inventory eventually anyway.)

  4. Well, after EA informing me I needed to re-log in (although I didn’t), I see that I went from 5000 donuts to 97. So guess the decision was made for me on whether I should purchase.

  5. Unfortunately as of last night I can no longer play — I’m logged out and any attempt to log in requires a code that is not being emailed to me.

    • I’m sorry rhubarb 😔 (EA’s Customer Support are friendly, but they also have zero skills to do anything that’s helpful now – I have a long story that’s not worth getting into, let’s just say EA has had to refund me 9.75 years of real 💵’s spent!)
