Spending actual cash on donuts for a character is back in TSTO. This is something EA’s been rolling out over the last few years, and it’s a 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 sometimes in addition to bonus donuts.
And I want to be perfectly clear…you do not need to buy these characters to complete an event. You can still play this game, and complete all the tasks and prizes, 100% free. These cash-for-character items are a new type of premium currency…because donuts have been so devalued with donut farming.
This time around we’re being offered Mr. McGreg, a premium character, for a tray of 132 Donuts ($9.99 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 Mr. McGreg, his tasks, questline and other details you may be curious about.
So let’s consider this an abbreviated Should I Buy….

Sorry I’ve been swamped most of the day, but seeing LOTS of reports in the comments now about a Storage Full Issue with Parts 3 and 4 of the questline. What happens is once you collect 115 Peanuts a Storage Full comes up and won’t let you proceed.
This is something that has to be fixed by EA (and I suspect a patch will likely be released tonight or tomorrow morning). Fortunately, someone has figured out a workaround and shoutout to Michaelk202 in the comments for posting it…
the issue is with prize 3 and 4 once you get to the last set of tasks to get to the final amount it says storage full
All you have to do if tap on the character icon in the upper left and the task is available you can then tap on the task and it will activate
Depending on how many peanuts you need to finish for that prize.. you may only need one or two characters to get the prize..
Same thing happens in prize 4 … so do the same thing.
Seems that that prize 5 doesn’t have this issue and you can play normally.
So try that solution for now until the patch comes down….
Who’s ready for what’s next in our pocket-sized towns? Well, you’re in luck because we’ve received our info packet from EA and we’re FINALLY allowed to share the details with you! Curious about what’s included in the next event? When does it start? How many donuts do you need? Who should you keep free? Want some major event spoilers?! Well look no further…we answer all of that and more here…
