Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
4th of July has arrived in Springfield! But, with that limited-time label it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. . But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add Richard Nixon and the Scandal-gate Hotel to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this former President to your Springfield.
Character/Building: Richard Nixon and the Scandal-gate Hotel
Donut Price: 150 Donuts
Earns: $55, 5xp/1hr
Conform-O-Meter: Indolence +10
-Premium character, earns 50% more cash and xp on all tasks
-Comes with his own questline.
-A couple of funny outdoor tasks
-Completes the 4th of July Character Set (assuming you have everyone from previous 4th of July Events)
-He’s voiced, with 4 funny phrases.
-It’s Richard Nixon…not exactly the same as Honest Abe 😉
-Scandal-gate Hotel can be difficult to find the right fit in Springfield.
If you’ve played every 4th of July and already own Lincoln and Washington, then you may want to pick up Nixon just for collection sake. Also, if you’re a big Futurama fan, you may want to grab him for nostalgia sake. Otherwise, this may be one you want to pass one. Personally I like Lincoln and Washington a bit more than Nixon. Their tasks are funnier and their building/tree is easier to fit into Springfield than the Scandal-gate Hotel.
Of course all that being said…I already own Lincoln and Washington & i’m a big history buff so I will be pulling the trigger on Tricky Dick. (and that fact that he’s voiced better than any other president in the game is an added bonus)
Pass on this one. If you’re looking to spend the donuts on a president get Lincoln or Washington (personally I like Lincoln better). Don’t spend those hard earned donuts on Nixon…
Just remember whatever you decide this is a LIMITED-TIME character and once he’s gone, he’s gone…so be sure to get him before July 9th if you’re thinking about making that purchase!
