    I have gas the offer, bought it, and still have my ad guy.
    I think it's just pot luck, many have lost him, and just as many gave still had him.
    Even if he is lost..he will return, however you nay never see the deco again.

    I really like the way the water 'flows' through your enclosures. In smaller scale I have created that with my Bears and Beavers.

    But I'm torn between wanting this deco and the fact that the ad guy just came back (curiously on the day I switched the game over to my new tablet) and, if experience is any predictor, as soon as I buy the bundle he will disappear again. He's been gone for about 18 months and I missed him

    No way. No wonder ppl call Playrix greedy.


    * yes, some tc, too, but wouldn't buy that in this range either.

    I posted a question a few days ago about this, relieved that the Heli guy was back, only to lose him again after buying normal decor. Fingers crossed that be comes back.

    cdosr - 18 months, ouch! 5 weeks was long enough to make me feel enormous sympathy for those who never see him.

    DD - thanks for the forewarning that prices rise. Am scratching head at Playrix as frequent small purchases generally generate more income than larger outlay. 20+ Euros counts as a large outlay for me, whereas would happily spend €5 quite frequently if the deco was cute enough.

    Cuddz - just how certain are you that he will return, given that some players like Bess never or rarely see him and cdosr had to wait 18 months.

    The cottage is cute, but not "I've got to have it no matter how much it costs" cute.

    Huh? I (been nosy and checked the offer) ... 2,29 Euro for me??? But then, I‘ve never bought anything, so by their strange logic, I probably get it cheaper than somebody, who buys things regularly... strange, indeed ...

    But now, I‘m sorely tempted, too *sigh*

    _DD_ you just terrified me! I had NO idea the prices go up like that. I really appreciate your post...wow. I would never pay that much for a decoration. I noticed that mine is 1 US dollar more since the last game. Thanks

    Thank you, yes it's really cool how the enclosures with ponds side by side create the illusion of flowing into each other .

    yvw, Jay - I don't understand their thought behind this either. Maybe they are and can be so certain that ppl will buy-buy-buy; just look at regattas and maybe also here, in this event, where almost all deco has to be bought with TC. and does get bought, and not only once.
    I wouldn't have enough from ingame sources, like the ad guy or HOL, for this.

    sorry Freedonia and yvw It's at least the third deco with that price for me, so maybe that is the upper limit <wry g>. I don't remember the steps in my "raises", but it went rather fast rather high, IMO. well, their loss, at least also. ;p

    20190705_201954.jpg (and I don't need any calculations re the TC in comparison to normal purchases - it's simply too much)


    And Z, yes, I know two Coop-partners with prices between 2 and 5 Euro, when I have 12 and 21. They rarely buy, maybe even never, and/but I wouldn't want having to wait a year, until I am "allowed" to buy the next deco.
    It is beyond me, how my not buying at all can be a goal, but I am sure, in some way Playrix is making their profit somehow, somewhere.

    Because I am obsessive about certain things, I've kept track of every purchase date, price, amount, and whatever else was included. Here's all my purchases. The most expensive was $4.98 (USD) and that had 2 decorations. I have yet to see any outrageous prices. I don't know how that fits with other's experiences.

    Lol, okay yes I can see where you are coming from with Medusa. Though mine is definitely more Mother Nature , otherwise I would be scared to look at her .
