Once again, Playdom was busy over the weekend, updating Social City with loads of new goodies. The game’s newspaper now offers new limited edition buildings, and the Build Menu now offers some new permanent editions that will give everyone something to look forward to. Finally, Playdom is offering some great incentive to users who pick up a Playdom Game Card with the intent of using that premium currency within Social City (as opposed to another Playdom game).
New Limited Edition Buildings: Cortney’s Day Spa, Chessboard Park & More
Since we last spoke, the quintet of items available in the game’s newspaper has completely cycled, with five new items being available to purchase, but only for a limited time. The five new items are quite varied, while all being Leisure items. Here’s a rundown of what’s now available:
- Cortney’s Day Spa – Costs 34 City Bucks – Adds 45,000 Happiness Points to your town
- Chessboard Park – 22 City Bucks – 11,000 Happiness Points
- Phoenix Co Tower – 39 City Bucks – 50,000 Happiness Points
- Wrestling Ring – 59 City Bucks – 62,000 Happiness Points
- Lucky Lily’s Casino – 22 City Bucks – 25,000 Happiness Points
All of these buildings are available in quantities of at least 2,800 units, as of this writing, with Lucky Lili’s Casino being the most limited of the five, and the Chessboard Park being the most readily available.
New Permanent Buildings: TV Station, Bus Depot & More
If the idea of rushing to spend City Bucks on limited edition buildings doesn’t do it for you, perhaps you’ll like the idea of purchasing any of the three new permanent buildings from the game’s store. The first new item is the Bus Depot, which is available in two forms. The first is for 25 City Bucks, while the other is available for 200,000 coins, that is, if you have at least eight neighbors on your account. It adds 10,000 Happiness Points to your town. Also, if you choose to add it to your city, you’ll see busses driving on the streets.
Next is the TV Station, which costs just 90,000 coins to build. For that low price, you also receive a fairly low amount of Happiness Points, at just 5,500.
Finallly, the last new item is the Subsidized Housing 2 (named as it is the second item in the series of apartment buildings). It can be built for 50,000 coins, and will add 600 residents to your town every 12 hours.
None of these items have time limits, so feel free to take all the time you need to acquire the necessary funds.
Purchase A Playdom Game Card to Receive Bonus City Bucks
For a limited time, Playdom is offering some added incentive for users to pick up a Playdom Game Card, which can be redeemed for premium currency in any of Playdom’s games, including Social City. The added incentive comes in the form of a 25% bonus on City Bucks for every Game Card purchased.
To put this into perspective, if you purchase a $10 Playdom Game Card, and redeem it on the “Get City Bucks” tab of the game, you’ll actually receive $12.50 worth of City Bucks, rather than the $10 flat rate that you purchased. It may not be much, but it’s something for free, which is always a good thing.
Playdom Game Cards are available at most major retailers – be sure to grab yours before this promotion ends, and perhaps even use some of your new City Bucks on the limited edition items currently available on the game’s page.
