Should I Spend Donuts on Princess Opal’s and Princess Opal?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It is update time in Springfield my friends!  And magic is alive and well in our Pocket-Sized Towns!  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 Princess Opal’s and Princess Opal to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this double Opal to your town…

  1. Still no fix months later?

  2. Still stuck with this job. And EA support is… not very supportive.

    Oh, and now I’m stuck with a Spend a Golden Token on Donuts job that I can’t complete also. 🤦🏻‍♂️

  3. double checking this is still an issue for others

  4. If you earn and store the Tarot Table before triggering the dialog for Pt.3 of her questline it’ll glitch out.
    The AHQ team are flagging it for the Developers to look into.
    None of the usual tricks work so it will need a patch.
    If you’re stuck the only thing you can do for now is to ignore it until the fix is ready.

    • This is a good example of why I never store event-related stuff until the event is over. I always keep a patch of land open to dump all new event content during the event. Once the event is over, I use what I like in my town design and store what I either don’t like or don’t currently have a place/use for. (Sometimes I start designing a bit during the event, with stuff I’m sure I want to use.)

      (I’m just sharing this as a hopefully helpful tip for the future, especially for newer players, but I’m afraid it might be coming off as scolding or “holier-than-thou,” which is definitely NOT my intent!)

      • Just don’t hit me again, I promise to be good . . . 🤪
        On a serious note it’s easy done. You win something and don’t know where to put it or just want to get on and start the next part so you hit Store instead of place. Normally that’s fine but this one comes back to bite you !!

    • I’m not sure that’s the issue. I didn’t store my table but I still can’t finish the quest line. In any case I hope they fix the problem soon.

  5. Having the same problem. I tried “putting away” Princess Opal and her building and then placing them again, but it didn’t help. At this point I’m out of ideas.

  6. Same problem here – stuck on part 3. Only odd thing I did notice was the first time I tried the task. It showed it running as a joint task with another Princess Opal depicted (same name, slightly different head picture) at the Tarot table when I tapped it. It also depicted Princess Opal BOTH standing by the table (like she does momentarily before the task begins) and sitting at it. This never happened again the next 4 times I tried it since. Just really strange. Wonder if this was the glitch that is causing the problem? Kicking myself that I didn’t screenshot it!

  7. Me too – any ideas?

  8. Glad to hear I’m not the only one…

  9. Grabbed it right away, a great addition to Sven Golly and the Fortune Teller’s tent area. Opal is going to be reading a lot of Tarot cards in my pocket sized Springfield.

  10. Does anyone else have the problem that Princess Opal cannot perform the task in part 3? The task „ Make Princess Opal Read Tarot Cards “ is not available in her list, but the other tasks are.
