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.

    1. EA picks the prices. He’s the same price as The Grumple so it’s not too shabby. Just up to each tapper whether the cost is worth it. I personally love Jimbo in my town.

    2. If you are still around and getting notified of comments, he is half price (sort of) fir about twelve more hours.
