Thanksgiving 2018 Prize Breakdown: Minnie and her Fight Animation

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

No matter where you live, it’s still Thanksgiving in Springfield! As the Thanksgiving mini-event nears the end, it’s time to break down the prizes.  Since the Thanksgiving mini-event is always full of a TON of content (Black Friday sales especially), I thought this year I’d break the prize breakdowns into two posts.  One, that can be found here, for the buildings and decorations and another, this one, for Minnie and the animation.

Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For each of the parts of the Blood is Thinner Than Gravy questline, you’ll have to earn  via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.

So let’s take a look at Minnie and her animation…

Should You Buy the Witch?

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 the Witch,  a premium character, for a truckload of 300 Donuts ($19.99 in the US)..no bonus this time around.  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 the Witch, her tasks and other details you may be curious about.

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