Gil’s Latest Gimmick: Details and Should You Buy Gil’s Pet Fair Bundle?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ol’ Gil is back in Springfield! Always a pleasure to see our favorite salesman roaming the streets of Springfield! (hey EA, when the heck are you going to make Gil a playable character?!)

Anyway, Gil is back and, as always, he’s got another “deal” for us.   What’s the latest gimmick he’s peddling? A Pet Fair of course!

So let’s break down the details of this latest offer and determine if this deal is worth the donuts or if you should take a hard pass…

So when you first get into Springfield you’ll see Gil waving his arms around…just begging you to tap on him…

If you tap on him you’ll see…

Gil: Come on down to the Springfield Pet Fair!  We’ve got cats, we’ve got dogs, we’ve got exotic Bolivian albino sugar gliders! Are they legal to own?  Buy one and find out!

At which point you’ll see his latest gimmick…

If you refuse…

Gil: Aww, can’t you at least take a cockatoo or two? They won’t shut up and this one’s way too honest in his criticisms.

If you accept…

Gil: Awm you made Gil’s day!  These baby tigers needed a good home. And now you can be their scratching post!

Now real quick…if you refuse the offer will go back to the store.  It will be there…

This Deal Ends July 20th (when the event ends)

And now for the part, you’ve all been waiting for…the Should I Buy…

    It’s good to keep track of your npcs, didn’t know I had that many I will have to incorporate it into my doggie area

  2. I knew I’d get this right away and split it up. Jesus Fish went into Praiseland. Hermit Crab will go into the aquarium on Squidport. Some may go into the zoo or I may do a separate dog area. New fences are always appreciated. Might even swap out this new fence with some of the circus area. Stay tuned…

  3. I passed (I just don’t know where I would put this stuff in my Springfield) but it’s nice to see a Bonus % boost + a Stage for Character Tasks (yes we have several of Stages, I will not disagree if somebody says Prizes are redundant, it’s either a good Prize? or it isn’t). I’m sure to think about this when it’s in a Mystery Box… 🤔

  4. Yup….got it! I added it to my outdoor fairs area….quite a lot for families to do on the weekends in my Springfield! 😉

    I think it’s funny that the “dog” competition includes all animals, including, for example, the screamapillar (sp?). It reminded me of some NPCs (not that one) that I forgot I even have!

  5. anyone else having issues game not loading up? I havent been able to get on for one an a half day – just getting the spinning donut screen, no login profilebuttons/text at all, and the bart screen doesnt even come up (only when tried turning off n on internet I got bart screen) seriously annoying missing out on maybe completing event because not able to log on for days!

    • When I get a constant spinning donut, an uninstall/reinstall of the game usually works for me.

    • reboot your Device (that should clear the cache), if this problem continues? It could be that you are low on ROM (remember this Game is 2 Gigs in size). I hope this solves things ….

    • yeah, thanks ♥ I caved finally even tho i think its so scary to delete and re-install.. and it takes up 2,84GB now, my towns massive lol! But still, plenty of space on my phone so it wasnt that. It works great now – only a little laggy, like its been for years… but it seems it boots up quicker than it used to do before the bug and reset!

    I grabbed it right away too.
