Should I Spend Donuts on the Mausoleum?

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

mausoleum_menu
Decoration: Mausoleum
Donut Price: 60 Donuts
Unique?: No
Earns: 5 Ghosts every 8hrs (after Halloween it will earn you Cash)
Pros:
-Fairly small, won’t take up much space in your Springfield
-Every 8hrs it unlocks 5 extra Ghosts to pop (translates to more GOO)
-After Halloween it will still earn you cash & XP
-Can complete the “Graveyard” design if you purchased the cemeteries.
Cons:
-Expensive. 60 donuts is a bit much to pay for something that will only release 5 ghosts every 8hrs.
-A little creepy looking, might not fit into everyone’s Springfield
-After Halloween, while it will still earn you cash and XP, there’s really no other use for it.
Final Thought:
This one, at least to me, is a toss-up. In my opinion it’s a bit much to pay for 5 ghosts every 8 hrs, but it does add a nice look to the cemeteries. This is something I would say that if you’re going to buy, buy now. Try to get as much use out of the 5 ghosts/8hrs as you can.

 

SPOOKY… EA ACTUALLY LISTENED TO US! (NEW LAND PLUS MORE!!!)

Most things in life that you think are deja vu are just coincidences or luck (or the computers changing something in The Matrix), but every once in a while in the life of an Addict, it feels like our pusher (aka EA) is actually listening to us.

So cool that we got more land with this update. It unlocks after you are done building the Gypsy Fortune Teller Shop as well as adding Lions, Tigers and Bears… Oh My. What’s that Alissa the Amazing? Oh, we’re not talking about current Happy Meal toys? Sorry folks, apparently it’s Ghost, Gremlins and Goo… Oh My! My bad.

I talked a little about the Gremlin here. Add to the 3 Gs, the option of haunting buildings and possessing characters in your neighbor’s town. One word… INCREDIBLE!

Here’s a little chart I came up with to help you with the new land prices for our new present. As someone who was full up on land other than my 2D palette, this addition was so cool. It gave me space for adding decorations temporarily without giving up my 2D Addiction. Can you say Redesign Mark 5? If the image seems tiny… just click on the image and it gets bigger. (Apologies in advance if that sounds dirty.)

NEW LAND

In addition to more land, we actually got back the following items from last year’s Halloween update:

Jack-o-Lantern

Don’t forget it looks like the Crashed UFO will be back with Kodos. Who has two furry thumbs and can’t mask his excitement? This guy!

For the lucky few that already had previous decorations from last year’s Halloween Update… our old decs started immediately giving us ghosts!
