Should I Spend Donuts On the December 21st Returning Items?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s snowing in our pocket-size Springfields!  Yes that magical time of the year when our towns are blanketed with snow and there are LOADS of items from Winters past to spend those sprinkles on!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome 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 The Best Snowman Ever, Gingerbread Mansion, Murderhorn, Snow Monster, Reindeer, Fancy Igloo, Duff Beer Tree, Ice God, Holiday Totem Pole, Bonestorm Santa, Annual Gift Man, Candy Kevin, Kearney’s Other Son, Duff Center Arena, Giant Outdoor Fireplace, Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers (and Babysitter Bandit), Elf Home, Egg Nog Bar, Festive Trashcan Fire or the Exotic Petting Zoo (and accessories) to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your Springfield…

Last Minute Holiday Shopping: Christmas Buying Guide

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers,

Well Christmas is almost over in Springfield (it’s about time right?!). Once it’s gone tomorrow (January 14th), the option to buy many of the Christmas décor will be gone! Poof just like that! The Grumple will steal them away and they’ll disappear into the night never to be able to be purchased again…unless of course EA decides to bring them back next year for Christmas.

Should I Spend Donuts on Candy Kevin?

Christmas has arrived in Springfield!  But, with all of the new Christmas premium items that are limited-time it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. With that limited-time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Candy Kevin to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this guy to your Springfield.

Tapped_Out_Candy_KevinCharacter: Candy Kevin
Donut Price: 40 donuts

Pros:
-Reasonably priced.  At 40 donuts he’s 5 donuts less than the K9 Officer.
-Festive Character for your town

Cons:
-Despite being a character in Tapped Out Candy Kevin does not come with any tasks, so he is a Non-Playable Character
-No Questline
-After Christmas there really is no point to have him roaming around your Springfield (like the Zombies at Halloween)

Final Thought:
Personally I think you’re better off saving your donuts and passing on this one.  Candy Kevin really provides no benefit to your Springfield and aside from the entertainment value of a man dressed around as a giant Candy Cane, it really has no return for your invested donuts.  So, unless you’ve already purchased all of the other premium characters or you’re a completest, I’d pass on this one and save your donuts.
Just remember whatever you decide this is a LIMITED-TIME character and once it’s gone, it’s gone…so be sure to get it before the event is over if you’re thinking about it.

Where did THAT come from – Candy Kevin (and the Grumple sort of)

Hey there Gift Grabberinos!

Wow… this holiday update is one doozy of an event. I’m having a blast in my town AND on Addicts.

Like I’ve said before, one of the bennies of this blog job (I think of it as a snow job right now lol) is getting to tell you where things come from. I thought I’d start out with Candy Kevin.
