An evil thought...

So yesterday I was playing the Insanity Cauldron game and won a Pumpkin Patch and got the congratulations message. And the thought popped into my head: What if in addition to prizes that help you in the game there were also 'anti-prizes'? Things that hurt you.
Things that reduced your Conform-O-Meter ratings, cut down your multiplier, increased your odds of winning more anti-prizes, decreased your odds of winning good prizes, etc. And what if they were unique, highly sought after things like Sarah Wiggum, Just Stamp the Ticket Guy, (um, all I can think of off hand but I'm sure there are plenty)?
And what if you couldn't store or sell these things (unless you had to PAY donuts to sell them)? Or if you could only pass them on to neighbors with towns above a certain level (like 600 or so) so you couldn't just create a dumping ground town, make it your neighbor, then toss them there?
Sometimes I realize that it's a good thing I'm not actually evil. And don't work for EA.

    No what? I'm not suggesting it be done, just relating an evil thought that popped into my head about the game.
  • Well that's one way to kill a game off.

    How about a 50/50 button of chance, 50% chance you win donuts for life or your town is nuked?

  • @Moxiee suggested a "take away donuts option a LONG time ago.. :|

    Not sure it was a hit then..

    Pretty much. I'm fairly certain a huge section of the player base would quit almost immediately, and a lot more would lose any interest in paying donuts for items that might get taken away.

    I still want them to release a 200-donut invisible NPC character just to see how many people actually buy it. If you happen to tap on any of the invisible pixels that comprise it then it would make a sound or briefly take a visible form etc
