It’s episode tie-in night! Tonight is The War of Art episode of The Simpsons. This is the seventh episode tie-in to TSTO in Season 25 for the show. In addition to the Guinea Pig Rescue Center and a Strupo Statue (20 donuts), there is a cute little guinea pig for 40 donuts named Pokey.
Is Pokey a good addition to your town? That’s ultimately up to you and your donut cache, of course, but here is some information that may help you decide whether or not to pay 40 donuts for a cute little NPC that makes squeaky noises. I bought Pokey this morning and the noises made my dogs’ ears perk up, so it was worth it (for me) just for that little joyous experience. But what about you? How do you come out on the Pro and Con list?
- Limited time (probably won’t be back again)
- Another NPC (if you love NPCs)
- Makes cute squeaky noises
- Is very cute
- Helps complete the pets collection
- Another NPC (if you do not like NPCs)
- Is small and hard to find
- Does not pay money or XP
- Costs 40 donuts
If you are rolling in donuts and can afford Pokey, it might be worth it to buy. Pokey is very cute and makes fun squeaky sounds. Of course, if you are saving donuts or do not like NPCs, then Pokey is probably a pass. In short, guinea pig enthusiasts (you know who you are!), completionists, and the wildly wealthy are probably the market for Pokey. If you want to test Pokey before buying and you’re my neighbor, swing by my town to see Pokey in action…if you can find the little critter!
