What do you value most?

Most of the game play revolves around waiting. Once you collect enough money to construct a new building you usually have to wait twenty-four hours before it completes. Characters have a variety of tasks that take different amounts of time to complete. Leveling up takes time, and there are many strategies you can use to level up faster. The more buildings and characters you have, the more you can earn. There are even a variety of ways to increase how much you earn, from improving the rating on your conformity meter to purchasing premium decorations with percentage bonuses to your earnings.

If you want to rush through the game, you can spend money on donuts to speed up any task you like. Of course the less subtle way of getting through the game faster is to buy premium characters that earn money and XP at higher rates, as well as premium decorations that come with different multipliers to boost how much everything earns by a marginal amount.

Aside from statistical elements, there are other factors to consider. Some characters have voices while other do not. The reason for this being that only characters who are voiced by members of the main cast are given voice-clips in the game. You may also place value on how many tasks a characters has that take place outdoors, because those tasks come with unique animations that make your town feel as though it is bustling with more activity.

Does it matter that the characters you purchase are continually worked into different quest-lines, or is it just there presence in your town that brings you joy? Maybe you enjoy limited-time content, so you can have unique items in your town that others with envy you for, and regret missing out on. If you are going to spend money on premium content, make the purchase worth it for you.

    I like the unique outdoor animations, the limited time offers and especially the rewards for completing a quest line, like the Liberty Bell at the end of the 4th of July. I’ve bought some premium items, but try to do what I can without spending donuts. I mostly enjoy rearranging the town and seeing how others use their space creatively. Thanks for having this blog!

    I only build the aspirational buildings just to keep busy between levels. I like seeing new buildings and decorations. The game’s design element is a massive component in my opinion.

    I LOVE outside tasks. Most of the time, the animations are great. Could be the subject of a separate post, listing all outside tasks with pictures including limited skins and characters.

    I’m same as mels. I try and check my game once per day. Except on weekends when I have more time, so ill do shorter tasks over the weekend, and 24hr tasks during the day.

    For what I buy, I try and balance between things that will benefit my town’s earnings (helping me get more fun things) and stuff I like from the show (ie prop or character from a memorable episode or scene).

    And yeah, I’d never spend donuts on speeding up the game. I’ve been aging since last August, and I’m still checking daily on my progress. I know if I had unlimited donuts I’d just buy everything at once, set up a town in a few days,the forget about it. This way is way more fun.

    I like to have my characters on outdoors tasks to make it seem busy. But my general strategy is to do 24 hours tasks through the week and play the shorter outside tasks over the weekend.

    A far as decorating, I over decorate but like my town to feel real, so i don’t have any of the aspirational buildings and haven’t bought all the limited time items (but i do have the over sized snake)
