Should I Spend Donuts on President Eisenhower and his 4×4?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Not only is the Toaster bringing Pirates to Springfield, but now we find out that’s how the presidents have been coming to Springfield all along!  As Bart has flashed back in time to bring President Mike Ike (mmm now I want candy) to Springfield to help him with his homework!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to grab this past president because he’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add President Eisenhower and his 4×4 to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this likable prez to your town…

Character: President Dwight D. Eisenhower
Building/Decoration:Eisenhower’s 4×4
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Earns: 4% bonus on all cash and XP, also 1,445  
Obedience +10
Other Info:
Can be placed on the grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt|beach (sadly the 4×4 does not move around Springfield.  When Ike uses it it’s stationary)

Leaves stores July 5th

-Ike will have a task inside the 4×4
-Animated when in use or tapped, lights turn on when tapped.  When in use it shakes and Ike sits inside of it and waves his club around.
-Fun animations

-Not voiced
-4×4 doesn’t move around Springfield (even when in use)

Final Thought
I like this combo.  Then again I like ALL the Presidential combos that have hit this game. But when you break this one down it’s 75 donuts for a character and 75 donuts for a decoration paying a 4% bonus, that’s not a bad deal on either of those. So I’d pick this one up.

I’d pass.  (even though I like Ike)  You’re better off spending your donuts on the Mystery Box and getting another president for less donuts.

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as I premium player I can tell I picked him up immediately.   But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before he leaves our games for good (or for now).

Here’s a look at his tasks…

  1. Alissa help. I can’t find Ike or any July 4 options.


  2. What about George HW Bush? He had actually moved to Springfield and became another individual frustrated by Homer. Is it because he’s still living they don’t want to put him in the game…?


  3. I got him just for the Jeep, we need more variety of vehicles
