    I would've bought a handful of the townhouses at 10 donuts each but I won't be shaken down for 150 donuts for the privilege of accessing the sale.

    150 for a building + character combo isn't really a shake down... the privilege of buying additional townhomes (each with their own payout) for only 10 donuts apiece is more like a bonus. could call it a juice up! :sunglasses:

    Depends on your point of view. If character specifics don't matter to you and you see them as primarily a source of $ and XP, then sure. It's no more expensive than any other combo. On the other hand, if you do value character specifics, you don't wish to spend 150 donuts on a character you've never seen before and a non-unique building that the game has priced at a value of only 10 donuts, then a juice up probably isn't how one would describe this particular sales method.

    c'mon dude, when has any standalone building first introduced to this game ever cost only 10 donuts? the game has priced it that way because it's essentially a bonus to a deal you must buy into first... a deal you've pointed out is no more expensive than any other combo. and a fair deal doesn't become a shakedown simply because you personally aren't feeling it.

    in fact, it's not unlike buying luann and the cracker factory as a prerequisite to unlocking the fleet-a-pita van.... another combo deal that costs 150 donuts.

    To be fair with the fleet-a-pita, you can purchase more mobiles with in game cash not donuts. Same with the bonsai trees, great walls, etc. this is the first time you can built more but only with donuts. Then again, these bulidings give in game cash and a multiplier. I’m on the fence about purchasing this one.

    well, that is why i said it was similar, not exactly the same. i do think it's more than fair to charge 10 donuts because it has a payout... fleet-a-pitas and and bonsai trees are just decorations.
    if you hard. then you hard.
