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.

Jimbo Jones
Donut Price: 120 Donuts
-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.
-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.
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.

Jimbo’s Tasks:

Task Length Payout Location
Four Finger Discount 1hr $60, 15xp Kwik-E-Mart
Play “Time Waster” 2hrs $175, 40xp Noise Land Arcade

Rebel Without a Pause Pt. 1
After tapping Jimbo

The New Yorker was right.  School sucks.
Bart: Hey, at least it’s almost lunchtime, right?
Jimbo: If I have to eat another serving of Mystery Meat Surprise, I’m gonna hurl.  And don’t get me started on the lunch ladies and their policy of not dating students.
Complain about Cafeteria Food- 8hrs
