Halloween 2018 How-To: Old Ruins Dig Site

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Halloween is back in Springfield!  Yes, the water is murky, the screen is slightly darker, monsters and minions are roaming our towns…is there anything better than Halloween in our pocket-sized towns?  (of course I would say Christmas, but Halloween is a close second to me lol)

As with the Excavation Game during TTT, the Old Ruins Dig Site has Tappers everywhere talking…about the best strategy, how many moves they can find the Relic in and apparently it’s very addictive.

So let’s breakdown the how-tos of this site & explore just what is the best dig strategy….

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Another day, another event in Springfield. As Superheroes fly their way back into our towns. And it wouldn’t be an event without a Mystery Box, now would it?  Of course EA’s go a box for this occasion!  They have a box for everything! This time around we’ve got a box full of Super items…

This is a premium box full of your chance to get those Superhero premium character/building/decorations you may have missed out on last year.  By now we should all be familiar with how Mystery Boxes work, so let’s jump to the breakdown of what’s inside…

Should You Buy Butterfly Maggie?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So something EA’s been slowly rolling out over the last year or so is this new bonus for actually spending cash on donuts. (instead of just farming them)  Where they attach a premium, limited-time, character to one of the donut bundles in addition to bonus donuts.

This time around we’re being offered Butterfly Maggie,  a premium costume for Maggie, for a truckload of 300 Donuts ($19.99 in the US) plus 100 Bonus Donuts (so costume + 400 donuts).  While it’s hard for me to sit here and tell you if you should or shouldn’t spend actual cash on the game (spoiler, I think you should always spend at least a small amount…even if it’s $.99/year on the game if it brings you joy and you want to see it continue) I thought I’d do a quick breakdown of Butterfly Maggie, her tasks and other details you may be curious about.

So let’s consider this an abbreviated Should I Buy….
