Should I Spend Donuts On Jimbo Jones?

Level 36 is here (woohoo!) and with it comes Jimbo Jones, a premium Toughie to add to your Springfield.  I’m sure you’re asking “Should I Spend Donuts on This?”….well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this bully to your Springfield.

Jimbojones
Character:
Jimbo Jones
Donut Price: 120 Donuts
Pros:
-Comes with his own 7 part quest when unlocked (you can read the full walkthrough here)
-Premium character pays out 50% more XP & Cash on all Jobs and Task
-Amusing outdoor task, Hacky Sack a Frog.
-Permanent Task using Noise Land Arcade Building.
Cons:
-Expensive.  At 120 Donuts he’s one of the most expensive characters without a building
-He’s not voiced
-After his initial quest he has no real tasks that interact with other characters.
Final:
I’m someone that’s always been in the “buy premium character” camp.  While 120 donuts is steep, and it may take a while to save, I’m a fan of adding Jimbo to your Springfield.  However, if donuts are limited for you you are better off spending less on a character like Arnie Pye (who comes with a helicopter) because you’ll get a bit more out of him.  So, if you have the donuts I say go for it.  But if you’re looking to be smart with your donut purchases I’d say hold off, for now, and take a look at some of the lower cost premium characters.

Should I Spend Donuts on the Springfield Museum of Natural History?

Level 36 is here (woohoo!) and with it comes the Springfield Museum of Natural History, a new premium building for your town.  I’m sure you’re asking “Should I Spend Donuts on This?”….well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding the Museum to your Springfield.

Building Name:
Springfield Museum of Natural History
Donut Price:
100 Donuts
Payout:
$500 & 45XP every 24hrs
Dimensions:  13×8
Conform-O-Meter Points:
Indolence +10
Pros:

-Looks nice.  Good fit in a downtown area with the Springfield Wax Museum & the Knowledgeum
-Pays out a decent rate of $500 every 24hrs.
-Will add to your Indolence rating, so you don’t have to house farm to max out your rating.
Cons:
-It’s a big building, will take up a lot of precious land.
-No quest unlocks with it.
-No Characters use it
Final:
This is one of those buildings I would tell you to pass on, unless you have an abundance of donuts.  While it looks cool it really doesn’t provide much value to your Springfield.  I would save your donuts for a different building or character.   So unless you’re a completest, or you’ve already purchased everything else, save your donuts on this one tappers!
