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.

What Would The Addicts Do: Gil, Grumple, and Wheel Tokens

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Everyone enjoy their ho ho ho day?!  Was Santa good to you?  I know I enjoyed Christmas…especially when Gil, the Grumple & free Reindeer are concerned!  Have you taken advantage of these yet?  (well the free Reindeer is NLA, but did you take advantage of it?)  Looking through the comments over the last couple of days many of you want to know just what we would do when it comes to Gil, the Grumple & a few other things.  So I wanted to take a minute to tell you WWTAD….

Should I Spend Donuts on The Grumple

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 the Grumple to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this decoration to your Springfield.

Decoration: Grumple
Donut Price: 120 donuts
Unique: Yes

-Is a permanent Character to your town
-Comes with 5 money/XP making tasks
-Comes with a GREAT back story and quest line
-Adds to the Holiday Decorations

-A Holiday Character
-Pricey for not including a building

Final Thought:
I REALLY like this character. Probably more so due to my love of who it is protraying. 120 donuts is a LOT to spend for a character when there are others for around same cost that include a building. I just know that for an completionist/addict, this character is a must have. I would take advantage of Gil’s Christmas Donut Deal and then purchase the Grumple. Then maybe the hefty price tag won’t sting so much. Otherwise, if you are pinching your pennies and watching your donuts, this one may be too costly for you.

Just remember whatever you decide this is a LIMITED-TIME item 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. He does make a few grumpley noises too. “Grumple-ty grumple-ty goo”


FYI…I figure I should just drop these off in here, just in case you wanted to see them. 🙂

So here we are on the Eve of Christmas and EA has decided to bring to us yet ANOTHER character for our game.

For some of us “older” crowd, Christmas consisted of claymated cartoons and possessed looking characters in our kiddie Christmas Specials. Dropped into the mix of Reindeers, Clause, and Snowman was a character out of a book by Dr. Suess. The Grinch.


Now The Simpsons trying to keep their own way of doing things came up with their own take on this grumpy green character. The Grumble. Now he is available for purchase in your game for the price tag of 120 Donuts.


Stay tuned for the Dialog and details coming soon! 🙂


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.
