Boardwalk fountains

I've seen them in other towns. It looks nice, but I'm not going to spend my donuts on one.

You can't have three. You can only have one.

It is boardwalk-only.

    75 donuts for a fountain is a tad too rich for my tastes, but the animation ive seen in friends towns looked okay.

    I like it, but you can only have one. It ls a simple pattern of one row after another and you can turn it 2 ways. Now off to watch my fountain and make sure I'm right. I'll edit if I'm not.

    I've seen other towns with more than one. Why would they limit that?

    Seems an odd decision by EA to allow only one of these, since I bet people would buy multiples if they could to create elaborate fountain arrangements. My only Squidport premium is the basketball game, and I probably won't be buying the fountain for that many donuts!

    I certainly won't be if you can only have one! Boo to that! I wanted to design something cool. I also think they would look good with city hall..,.

    My memory ain't what it used to be, but seems I read here once that there was a time in the beginning that you could get more than one. Maybe that wasn't about the fountain. But ...

    the animation is cool. it shoots cascading jets of water every other second. here's mine:

    yeah, too bad you can only have one. it looks small and dinky there by itself. (but it's probably better for me anyway b/c i don't have the donuts right now.)

    Same here. Too costly.

    I put Homer's car there, because that's what he did in the episode. SC is me.

    I'm not sure why it's limited to one.
    If you've seen towns with more... Well, I don't like to throw accusations around.

    It's more then one town though. Maybe the previous poster was right, not limited before? I have a couple neighbours that had three on their boardwalk :?

    An Addicts article from August of last year indicates it's limited to one per game. Squidport was released in June. There's a narrow window in there where it might not have been limited, but I can't find information about multiples that isn't related to... Well, you know.

    Or it glitched. Like what is happening to people in Stonecutters that have multiples of items.

    I bought one pretty quickly because I liked the way it looks in neighbors towns. I remember I tried to buy another but the game would not allow it.
    It would be cool to have a few together to make a larger fountain area.

    I started playing last summer on Android and at that time you could indeed have more than one water fountain. In fact my "other springfield" had 3 of them for the first few weeks I played. I wasn't at the level that I could buy them before they changed the rules to only having one.
