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….

Halloween Act 2 is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that Act 2 of the Halloween Event…Ends TOMORROW October 31st at 10am ET (1400 GMT)

Once the Act 2 is over you will no longer be able to earn Act 2 Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning fangs if you haven’t unlocked all of the prizes because the closer you get to unlocking the next prize the lower the donut cost would be should you need to purchase it when the next Act starts…)

Crafting will STILL be available in the next Act. And Pickaxes will Carry Over (Relics do not)

For a rundown on everything that was included with Act 2 check out our rundown post here.

And don’t forget about our Ending Act 1 Tips

Be ready for the Act 2 to start at 1400 GMT (10am ET) tomorrow morning  (October 31st)….

Halloween 2018 How-To: Act 1 Crafting

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ah the Crafting post….where I give you the how-to and break down each and every item available to craft, so you don’t miss a thing!

Love it or hate it, EA has proven over the last couple of years that crafting is here to stay.  While the prizes themselves are pretty self-explanatory, collect this to earn these prizes, crafting is a whole other “animal”.  Crafting requires some self-direction.  You decide what you want and collect the items to craft accordingly.  Sometimes this is successful and sometimes it’s not. And, as with all things, for some events crafting is easier than others.

While we thought they finally did away with crafting after the last event, Moe’s Ark, it’s back and the same as always for THOH.  Now I know some of you still have questions so, let’s take a look…
