    At least the rich get content this week while the poor look on jealously.


    That's right. Because by "rich" i assume you mean a person who can afford to spend what is slightly more than the equivalent of three Big Mac Value meals (which is, quite literally, money down the toilet, BTW).

    How about a little less hyperbole?

    So because we are hardcore players we cannot buy limited and premium stuff?

    I won't be getting it but if they offer premium content then they should at least offer something non premium aswell!

    I have purchased the Shadow Knight deal for 200 donuts. I had received the Shadow Knight skin for Bart and the Shadow Knights throne. Shadow Knight is on his first quests to "Question His Existence" which takes place at his throne as an outside task. The only reason I had purchased the deal is because I am a completist and I do think that the item is very overpriced for 200 donuts.

    The price is absurd. I bought it because I have a small amount of extra bit of money to spend, and i like it, but it is an overpriced item.

    That price sucks, but I bought it anyway. When it comes to "completionism", all I care about is characters/skins. Don't care about buildings/decorations - unless they come with characters/skins.

    I still regret skipping Boobarella and Devil Flanders last year - hopefully I'll be able to rectify those mistakes next week!

    As much as I agree that SK is overpriced, since I only care about characters, I didn't want to miss it.

    I was hoping to make it through Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas without having to buy more donuts - I assume there'll be another post-Xmas sale, and I was saving my iTunes balance until then.

    I still might make it - I have 469 donuts, and that might be enough to cover the limited time items between now and the (hoped for) sale...

    Its expensive because it wont be offered again, same thing with the gold mansion.

    Never saw anything saying the mansion wasn't ever coming back....... most things in this game cycle around, chances are they get offered again.


    But it really is kinda pricey right before Halloween.

    Exactly it may not be soon for all but is a possibility whether it's next month a few months or even in the next year or so it most likely eventually will like how the CBH finally did this summer

    To each his own, but if this were offered for in-game cash (i.e., for free), I probably still wouldn't want it. **** won't be missed. Pretty excited to see what they'll do for Halloween though.

    People (like me) probably bought it because they liked the episode, not because of ****.

    If anything you'll at least be able to get Boobarella and Devil Flanders it should only cost you 175 for both

    Do you mean a character with only outdoor tasks or all of Shadow Knights tasks

    Seems more likely he's asking about Shadow Knight's outdoors tasks.

    I ended up buying it (I really liked that episode), but 200 donuts is a bit steep. Hopefully they will give us better pricing on premium items during Halloween... But that may just be my wishful thinking again...

    He looks kind of cool next to the Bad Dream house. I think I can work him in when i do my Halloween area, so that even if I put my castles in storage he looks a little less out of place. I like that the throne is large enough to stand out a little, instead of some of the decorations that disappear into the background. A bit out of scale next to the house, but I suppose the Dark Knight is supposed to be imposing.

    Would be interested to know how often they have put out these odd limited time premium items just after the first of the month. That's payday for a lot of people, and spending money is sometimes easier to come by for those lucky enough to have a little extra to spend.

    Yeah, I know I can afford those 2 - assuming they're brought back again. The question is what NEW limited premium content will appear for Halloween - and what possible Thanksgiving premium content there might be.

    In terms of new Christmas premium stuff, I can wait until after 12/25 to buy that. I assume it'll be available into January so I don't have to buy it as soon as it hits the game. If I have the donuts to spare pre-hoped-for-donut sale, then I'll get it, but I can wait.

    Worst case scenario? I get $25 worth of donuts to hold me over for the sale.

    Actually, the worst case scenario is that there IS NO SALE, but I refuse to accept that possibility! :D

    Ridiculous price tbh. Not even considering that for a skin and an oversized item

    Soooo instead of a final week deal with something to spend my ~90,000 elixir on there is an update with a "deal" to spend 200 donuts or about $15-$20 on a chair deco and a skin for a character that already has a premium skin. It runs 4 days so we can certainly not expect any actual content until Halloween next week. Icing on the cake for me thinking **** was worse than Easter.

    Im gonna get a couple scratchers on saturday, if I strike it big I might buy him.

    But c'mon EA! 200 donuts this close to Halloween? Drop a donut sale on us and see your sales figures soar! ...or at the very least rise marginally before plateauing.
