View Full Version : How much money have YOU spent on City Story?

Just out of curiosity, have you spent any real money on City Story gems at all and if you have, how much? Are you planning to spend more money in the future? Did you spend your money in the beginning of the game or did you start playing the game with no plans on spending real cash but ended buying gems at some point?

I've spend about 3-5?, in the beginning when low energy fustrated and I wanted to do more at once. Now I'm used to slow pace of the game and I'm not planning on spending more money to this game, even though I wish I will get Eiffel Tower at some point.

I have spend no money at all on city story metro, but I have a pretty big city (13,000 population) and some gem buildings from game-install goals.
I understand people spending money on the game; you get a lot of in-game money for your real money, and there are some very nice looking and/or useful buildings that cost gems. And you can't get gems without buying them, except for the occasional goal.
I decided for myself not to spend money on games featuring gem (or gold) traps. I lost a few gems on gemtraps in city story metro. Luckily not too many.
I have a lot of neighbors who spend (a lot of) money on the game, usually to buy the statue of liberty and some other wonder.

Only worth spending gems if the item bought is lucrative

I'm not the kind of person who sounds money on games...I could buy something much better in real life

Probably 4 dollars on this game

I haven't bought any gems and I've already got 221 gems,so I don't think I will be buying gems anytime soon!

Me too. I got too many games now. I like city and I haven't lost any gems stupidly yet so I might buy gems if they have something fun that I can create optical illusions with.

And levelling it to lvl 3/6/11 etc.. Quite a pain.

Oh btw, 0 so far.
Don't plan on spending any till it gets cheaper by 70-80%.... But if Ben says its a good return on real money for Ingame cash...
Hmmm... I'll still wait for a 50% discount and would still go in only for a real treat..

Spending money
For 8.7 million and 990 gems
Or 18490 gems in total
Or rs. 36k / $700
is way too expensive.

Waaaaaay too expensive.

I know I can't compare it to games that cost me 50$ and gives me a full game to play on my computer, but some rationality is still expected, if I'm to spend any money in game !
