    Welcome to the dark side. We do not, in fact, have cookies...we have donuts!

    I dread to think how much money I have sunk into this game.

    I just think, I'd have only spend it on either sweets (which would make me fat) or on other games which I wouldn't be playing anymore.

    So...yeah, if I can't afford them one month, I cry. lol

    Honestly I have probably only spent $200 or so since day one. Equals about 1/1000 a penny per minute of happy tapping. I believe I have spent more on crab Rangoon during the same time period. Oddly crab Rangoon is usually given for free with coupon at my local chinese restaurant.

    When the game 1st started your donuts used to go SO MUCH Further 300 could last at least two events maybe more depending on the content, be lucky if that amount lasts two purchases now :roll:

    Jeez I wish I had cash like that. I've been trying to save up to my buy my truck an alternator. I'm also trying to convince myself I can install it on my own, just to save $300 on labor. But it is very physically demanding and I have a hard time working on the engine since breaking my back in my last motorcycle wreck.

    Happy tapping, high rollers! :D


    All my designs look unfinished because i can't place as many plants, streetlights, and fences as i would like. PLEASE REMOVE THE LIMIT, EA!

    Ah I remember those days. Premium characters were cheap. The last time we actually got a cheap premium character was the French Waiter for 50 donuts during the Level 47 update, which was released on November 2014. And what a great character he has been.

    I'm strictly a freemium player. Been playing for about a year and have spent doughnuts on Squeaky-voice Teen, Bumblebee Man, Hans Moleman, Otto, Rich Texan, and the tire fire. I won Kearny and Blue-hair Lawyer last month but spent over 30 doughnuts doing so. I also have 3 Lard Lad Doughnuts and 4 Itchy and Scratchy . Right now, I'm saving for Barney. Still have 136 doughnuts to go. It's a slow process, but I'm saving money.

    Molzpink and I have probably spent over $1,000 since I surprised her with the first donut purchase for her birthday at the end of April '14. It was just a $10 purchase, and I made a little pink donut card that simply said, "Buy yourself something nice." I slipped that in her iPad case, and the door to the Dark Side flung wide shortly after.

    But, as sdarral stated, it woulda just been spent on something else. Something more temporary and probably long-forgotten by now. People say we're just buying pixels, but these pixels make me smile everyday. That's worth it to me. :)

    Cheapest form of entertainment available. Its not the dark side - its a smart way of investing back into the longevity of something that provides endless hours of entertainment.

    not been keeping count but I bet I've spent close to 1000 in all my years, I keep trying to tell myself I've only spent 500.

    :oops:

    still cheaper than a night out if you're me. I can rack up a 100 bar and appetizer tab real quick if I go out.

    I've only paid for 1 boatload as I really wanted Barney & a few others. I'm now down to 140 donuts which I was temped to spend on Frink but I know if my donut count shows 0 then I will be tempted to buy more so going to have to stay freemium for a while. I'm due my mystery box tomorrow so hoping for 30 donuts but I bet I get another Onda car.

    I lost count on the number of boatloads I have purchased... Perhaps 10.
