Item Overview: Hootenanny Barn and Luke Stetson!

Hello, my name is Sam! You might know me from sites such as … wait … I’ve already used that joke! Let’s just skip to the point!

Howdy Partners! Act 2 is live in our games and with all events come different items (premium and freemium) and with this event we have been given a shedload of fun items to add to our Western area! With Act 2 came a premium building/character combo (Hootenanny barn with Luke Stetson) and in the post I will be giving you the rundown of the item and whether you should add it to your Springfield!

So join me after the jump …

Luke Stetson in the Simpsons

Luke Stetson featured in the episode “Dude, Where’s My Ranch?” and was Lisa’s boyfriend (SPOILER Became Ex-Boyfriend) and is found at the lazy ranch! He makes friends with Lisa and they decide to go out (Awww … Cute)

But after a mishap at a barn dance (held at Hootenanny barn) things go a bit dodgy! I won’t spoil it for you! Then tension builds as a characters in danger (oh no) but super Lisa comes to the rescue!

Luke Stetson in our games

Luke Stetson comes as a premium character for Act 2, when you buy him it will take 6s to build the barn (like all premium items do) and then you will see the unlock screen:

And he has a fun questline (coming soon) that involves Lisa and some fun visual tasks! When you tap on Hootenanny Barn you will get a farmy sound and you will see it pays out $135 and 15XP every 4hrs with the payout task “Swinging Partners” – a reference to the barn dance in “Dude, where’s my ranch”.

And he is part of the Old West Partners collection:Old West Partners

Should you buy it

Hell Yes!!! Sorry got a bit excited there – I will explain in more detail
This is the best price for character/building combo (that I know of) and offers another child (we needed some more) and fun addition to your Springfield! It comes with a few fun animations and a great questline involving Lisa. I can’t really find any negatives against this (maybe it not having a lot of visual tasks could be a negative)! It offers a great payout, character and building at the best price event or no event! He also has a town plaza job that payouts (game currency) at a premium rate.

Final Verdict

If you have the donuts then I don’t see why not to get this, this offers a chance to get game currency as well! At such a great price the only reason not to get it is if you have a phobia of kids (Lol :)) so save up and get this great character/building combo whilst it’s still around!

This leaves are games when Act 3 starts (17th May)

Hope you enjoyed the item overview for Luke and the barn! Have you got, or planning to get, Luke and the barn? Enjoying Act 2 so far? Feedback for my first proper post? Tell us in the comments and Happy Tapping …

      It will be subjected to editing, possible changes or denied (depending on the nature of the post). A guest post is a collaboration, so it suites both the blog and the guest. Approval from both on the final edit is required so we wont post anything you dont like or anything we dont like.
      We dont know if you can write so a sample of your writings would be appropriate. We reviewed Sam’s blog and asked a lot of questions regarding committment and other things before we added him.


      1. Is having my own blog required?


        1. No it would just look better as you have an experience with writing posts! If you can give us a glimpse of your writing style with an introduction sent to use at then we will consider it! (Sorry if you disagree with me Em just edit the incorrect bits out)


          1. It’s totally fine! I am planning to write a post about Wes Doobner that is similar to your post about Luke Stetson. Is that OK? Because I don’t wanna feel like I stole your idea


            1. Nah! It’s fine! Imitation is a way of showing respect LOL! Not really my idea but a general one πŸ™‚


          2. Also I wrote a guest post for Tsto Addicts So I could send you guys that if you want


            1. Yes that would be great! Then we can see your writing style and experience! πŸ™‚


              1. I’ll send the Link to the Topix Email


              2. I sent it! 😁


      2. I sent you guys the link to the post I wrote for the Addicts through The Topix Email, What do you think?

              1. Well I hope you like it!


              2. Sooooo Did you like it?


                1. This is not a forum for private, irrelevant (to the post) discussions.


                  1. Sorry.


  3. Luke Stetson Is also a much better deal than Buck McCoy


    1. Amen! I wouldn’t have classes Buck as a building/character combo as to me it is more of a decoration!


      1. But Buck’s visual task on that horsey is hillarious

    I agree that a character/building combo for 100 donuts sounds great ……… BUT Luke Stetson only appeared in 1 episode and is thus not that memorable.

    I’m a 100% freemium player, so I would rather spend my freemium donuts on characters “more key” to Springfield like Brandine, Otto, Frink, Duffman, Dr Nick etc ………… I’m doing pretty well so far in Act 2 without Luke. I’m playing frequently during the day, and have currently collected over 6K badges


  5. Also thought it was a bit of a no-brainer – a character and a building for just 100 donuts, so thanks for the confirmation.


  6. Get supplies for the trail – 60 mins (general store)
    Reward $125 and 26XP

    Are you sure about $125? Most premium characters have $105. My Luke is at work so I can’t check.


    1. I am pretty is sure it was when I checked! But will happily check πŸ™‚

    Welcome Sam!
    Payout for ‘play a trail song’ is $420 and xp105.
    It’s a nice visual animation showing Luke sitting on a bale of hay with a guitar singing and the barn doors are open.


  8. So if I buy this, I get game currency in just this act, or through act 3 as well? Very tempting I must say.


    1. I would definitely get it I you have the donuts! It will have a town Plaza job throughout the whole event! It is he best combo ever and for me was a no-brainer! πŸ™‚
