All-Seeing Eye Pyramid

Prev1
I love it! The difference from the egg thing is this looks cool plus pays out and later will be a cool building. Not like the ugly egg things

    Do you think it's worth it? It's the equivalent of the Egg-o-Matic machines from Easter. There's a big difference here though. This time it's not chance-based. So, I think that it could be worth it for this event. I'm wrestling with myself over whether or not I should get one. There's also the treasure chest. It's about half the price. Is anyone going to buy these things? I already bought the alien. I just couldn't resist, especially because he's playable. I'm wondering if I should spend the donuts on the pyramid. It's pretty cool looking, so after the event I won't mind it in my town. Opinions?
    I'm not sure it would be worth it. Emblems seem easy to earn however there is a chance to get donuts every 3000 after achieving all prizes (similar to bonus level ups)

    I don't know... not that I'm a conspiracy guy, but I just don't like all the nonsense that it represents, and I don't really see much of a place, or a use for it in my town.

    Oooo! Your's looks great! You're right on about those horrendous egg machines. What the heck are we supposed to do with those things? The pyramid looks very nice though. Your screenshot may have convinced me to get it. I love those walls around it. I think I'm going to hide mine in the forest. I put my Stonecutters temple in the forest already (it's a secret club after all :wink: ).

    Wow it looks good. And it's animated correct? I was thinking of buying it.

    I AM a conspiracy gal :wink: , but I still may get it. I know what it represents and I know what the all-seeing eye represents, but I still want it. Maybe it's because I am into conspiracy theories, it's almost like a joke to me. I can totally understand being put off by it though. I'm kind of dancing that line right now. It's all so blatant, but at the same time, The Simpsons doesn't try to hide what it means. If it were more subliminal and less mocking, it probably would really put me off. I appreciate and understand your opinion though. I get it. :wink:

    I will most likely get it because it will look good if the Badlands are ever added and I"ll just place it there

    Thanks! That's actually exactly where mine will end up post event. As did my Lincoln cabin, camp Krusty, the observatory and the elf home. The egg thingies I shoved next to Frinks lab. It's the only spit I could think of they was good for them :?

    Yup the top piece floats :-) and I assume it'll revert to cash payouts after the event

    It's totally a mockery of big brother that's why I love it. The simpsons surveillance points really were before their time!

    I agree. I feel like the episodes that touch on secret societies, big brother, the surveillance state etc. cast these things in a negative light. Like I said, if it were more subliminal, I would be a lot more suspicious of it, but it's so blatant that it's clearly done in the spirit of mocking these things. "Homer the Great" (the Stonecutter episode) doesn't seem to mock people who believe these theories. It establishes that the Stonecutters (who represent the Illuminati/NWO/globalists/Bilderberg/upper-level Freemasons/etc.) and real and that they have a hierarchy which has its tentacles in every aspect of society. You rarely see shows legitimizing these topics. They normally mock the "conspiracy theorists" instead. Though I do understand Bravewall's reluctance to put an all-seeing eye pyramid in his town. The symbolism behind it can be off-putting to people.

    What the heck. If it's good enough to be on the one-dollar bill here, right next to "In God we trust", in the good old USA, I figure it would be downright unAmerican to buy it. A shrine of sorts. :)

    Now that I've got millions I don't even think about how much stuff pays out now, I just care about how it looks, and imo the Pyramid looks sick, I want 2 :P

    I need to get more donuts so I can get that (and Hibbert's Stonecutter skin).

    It appears to me as though with the daily tasks and friend visits, it should be fairly easy to get to 22,000 emblems without needing the pyramid as long as you are a daily player. So what it really comes down to I think is whether you think it's worth the donut price as a building you want to have in your town for the future.

    True indeed. I need more land, have no idea where to put it, haven't even got the bowlarama yet (?!?!) and yet I'm sure I'll get this.

    Lol. Good point, Annette. I think I'll do the patriotic thing and buy one. I feel like Homer in the "Bart vs. Australia" episode, when the American embassy makes sure the toilet flushes the in the right (American) direction, reversing Coriolis effect, and he sings "God Bless America" while crying and flushing the toilet.

    That is not very much but the building looks cool. I'm thinking of getting it with my saved donuts.

    Thanks
