Should I purchase Santa’s Village?


Should you buy Santa’s Village?
I bought my Santa’s Village last Christmas mainly because I wanted the Santa costume for Homer, it’s the same price this year as it was then, 200 donuts which isn’t exactly cheap.
So let’s have a look at some pros and cons for buying or not!

Pros

  • It earns $300 a day and 30 XP.
  • Santa Homer earns money and XP at the premium rate.
  • It looks pretty nice surrounded by snow and reindeer.
  • It’s Christmas and Homer looks awesome walking around dressed as Santa.
  • Homers costume has many amusing outside tasks, he even gets to fly a sleigh!
  • It is a limited time building, after Christmas it could be gone for good! Or until next Christmas.

Cons

  • Santa’s Village has no animation.
  • It’s pretty expensive at 200 donuts.
  • There is another Santa in town and he is free!
  • Santa Homer won’t help you earn gift cards, Santa Flanders will.
  • No character apart from Homer interacts with Santa’s village and he only has one task there.
  • Homers costume can only really be used for a month, after the snow has gone it looks out of place.

Conclusion
Last year buying Santa’s Village was the only way to have a Santa walk your town this year there is a free option! I would probably only buy this if your collecting Homer costumes or if you have money to burn. It is a nice addition at Christmas time but for the rest of the year its a bit pointless the choice is yours though.

Here’s what I did with my Santa’s Village.

  1. I got him last year with the discount because 200 D$ is way too much. It’s true he seems out of place most of the year. I have seen some people use it with the Sir-putts-a lot and create an expanded mini-golf center. Even then, I would advice ppl to wait on this one. You have a chance on winning it with the wheel, yes? Even if you don’t I would still hold out and see if he goes on sale.

  2. I remember Santa’s village going on sale last year, so players can maybe hold out a bit more in case a special offer appears again.

    1. Oh nevermind me, just read the other post on Gil’s likely appearance. So guessing there won’t be any diecount on the village. :/
