Hijacking your post coolssp! I'm sure you won't mind ;) SW



Rotten Cabbages is not stored in your inventory, you can keep track of how many you have in the Baron's Game Tent. You are only brought up to a total of 3 Rotten Cabbages per day. If you already have 3+, you will not receive the daily 3 Rotten Cabbage from the Baron's Game Tent. You can collect and keep more than 25 Rotten Cabbages if you choose not to use them and collect them.


Timer has been changed to 22 hours. Thank you guys for the feedback. :)


Today is a release of a GEM building to get 1 cabbage per day as a drop from the Cabbage Hut. it is timed, completely optional and not required to advance the main storyline.

+5 cabbages for placing it. I wonder how many additional cabbages you get from it per day. If it's 5 that would be worthwhile but if it's just 1 not as much.

Mine says one a day that you can save up to guarantee a prize..., I should say, increase your odds, don't think it said guarantee

It's a nice gesture to have a building that gives rotten cabbages, but at one per day by the time I save enough cabbages, the prize will be long gone.

I thought I was spending coins. At this point as long as I've been playing, I thought I'd learned. Oh well, I will make the best of it. At one cabbage per day, it will take a month to earn enough to "win" a prize, but at least they can be stored and I won't be spending gems to "buy" any more cabbages. Long term payoff. (I'm awful at math, but I figure that at the rate of 180 gems for 22 cabbages, this thing will pay for itself in approx 55 days. After that, all daily cabbages will be free.)

I thought I was spending coins too. What a rip off.

I thought this was the regular update, not a sale. This should have been offered as a sale if S8 was honest about it. I can barely see the amount on my iPhone and never look for buildings. I want my money back!

I will not spend any more money on S8 games unless my gems are replaced. What a sneaky rip off.

Yes, this nasty piece of work can be stored. Mine will be as I don't want any more Tent Trash.

I don't think you have to buy more. Buying it gives you 5 cabbages and you have 5 days to complete the goal. So with three free cabbages per day, you only need 2 more days to finish.

Edit: the building comes completed, no additional materials required.

No one would actually pay 450 gems for that thing on purpose....at least I hope anyway! According to the last few posts on the Barons thread, most prizes aren't worth it anymore.

10-15-15, 12:44 PM
I like the idea of it as I have spent much more than 450 gems when the tent first came out. I don't mind saving one cabbage per day for a while before making sure there is a prize I want. In the long run, this is a much less expensive option if one has patience. Thank you, S8. :)

Is there also a 5-day timer on that goal to throw 10 cabbages?

I'm wondering what bugs haven't been discovered yet ...like, how does the thing REALLY keep track of our daily rotten cabbages? - does it add on purchased cabbages along with the one dropping from the cottage?

450 gems is steep...I need to do some more math before I'm buying, lol...

Seems like, if you buy the cabbage house, and you want something from the Baron's Tent every month, you'll have recouped your money after about 3 months, so after that 3 month period you're golden.

I don't really like a lot of the items in the tent? Still thinking on this one....

I will buy it, the current tent prize isn't one I want so I will get it later when the prize changes/
I have only got 2 prizes from the tent, 1 cat and 1 dog. I had to buy the 10 pack of cabbages twice on both occasions, so I spent 360 gems for 2 prizes.
I couldn't justify 180 gems per prize, but an outlay of 450 gems to get a tent prize each month is a no brainer.

Me too.

At least it can be stored.

Here I was thinking that S8 had realized their error in only giving 3 cabbages a day and had fixed it in a creative way. The creative way turned out to be a 450 gem rip off that benefits only them.

I think this is going to hit them in the face because I know I wont be buying any more gems in any S8 games from now on.

This is the most blatant gem trap yet and a poster child for why we need confirmation for all gem purchases in this game.

S8 listen up. I want my gems back. I wouldn't have had a problem with this if it had been offered as a sale and not come disguised as a legitimate update.

S8 pulled a trick on us for Halloween.

I am unimpressed and will be storing this mark of shame.

You are making a false assumption here. Not all of us want the tent trash. It may be worth it for those who do, but for me, I was just snookered out of 450 gems.

I have stored this just as I would store the tent if I could. It will never be worth it for me.

I am complaining and it is not worth even one of my gems for this. I am real.

I do not visit the baron tent on daily basis, I don't care about the prizes, as I am full on almost everything, and couldn't care less about the grand prize, I only got a cat at the start, and since then I did not bother, so for me it is awaste of gems, I'd rather buy an Alicorn!

Ok, I'm back with some math. By the beginning of 2016, it will have paid for itself (takes 2 1/2 - 3 months recoup time, by my calculations, lol).

It's unusual I think for this to be part of a goal, usually there's just a pop-up about new items in the market. Thankfully I had some control and didn't place, but I sure do feel terrible for those who lost their gems..I was so close to clicking it and then stopped at the last second. I don't even like most of the tent items, I think I spent about $5 to purchase a cat a few months back that's given me good returns.

I guess I have a few more days to decide. I'd like the issue of 'do you still get 3 free a day' cleared up. For those who like the items in the tent, and go there regularly, this is a bargain.

10-15-15, 01:23 PM
I'm actually tempted, as I've bought tent prizes twice - I couldn't resist the mummy cat for Halloween! But I'm worried that something really good will come along for Black Friday or Christmas and I'll be gem poor then....

Yes, it will definitely be worth the prize in the long run. If I had enough gems I think I might buy it right away. It would be nice to be able to get a tent prize every month.

Write to support, I just did and asked them to cancel my purchase and take back their Rotten Hut!
The automated answer came back directly as usual, but since it is not the "usual" gem trap but more of a sneaky one, I don't think they will deny me my request.
It's been a while since I last bought gems, I was making them, IF they do not answer my request, It will definitely take LONGER while to buy gems, IF EVER!

So, if I get this building, realistically, I won't ever get the 3 free cabbages each day. Or, is S8 plan to continue giving folks the 3 free daily cabbages on top of whatever is collected? I doubt it. This building is way overpriced.

i like the animal prizes in tent but, passed most dogs up for i prefer spending gems on the kittie cats.
this rotten cabbage hut i will definitely buy for future dogs, AFTER one thing is made clear....will there be, or is there, a limit on how many rotten cabbages you can hold at one time? like i don't want to have to choose between using the say 25 rotten cabbages i collected or lose future harvested ones from hut until i use some of the 25.

I am willing to bet that the three free per day still happen. For those on the fence because of this reason, I am sure one of us who bought it will post tomorrow about whether the three free ones are still there, along with more detail about how the hut actually stores the cabbages.

The hut doesn't store the cabbages ... The tent does.
I've had 5 left over in my tent for a few days and the 5 I just gained from purchasing the cottage were added to it ..so yeah, it now says "10" inside the tent for me.

So it's gonna stay in the market (?) and the benefit of doing the goal is 10 free cabbages.

I don't think I would mind spending gems on it, but I won't spend $$ on gems, just get them from the "Download this game" and "Get to this level" quests. Is it going to stay available after the 5 days runs out?

Is it upgradeable?

Well it doesnt take a genius to know you ONLY get the 3 cabbages when you do NOT have any cabbage, ill let you draw your own conclusion to your own question.

Just imagine how fun this update could have been if we had been making a new turducken dish as well as rotten cabbages:D

Edit: Or turcocken, of course!
That's why I said I want turkcocken (or Chickeypeas) in my Baron tent next month for THANKSGIVING! (Mine is next month, not last week - that's Canada, lol)... and while we're at it, we can also cook up some turducken dishes next month for our Bountiful Tables! Lol
(I better get off here, SW is gonna smack my hand for staying off-topic, lol)

You are truly the princess of grace! I, too, was trigger happy...assumed it was a simple building placement. Most unfortunate! And I had just amassed myself a tidy little cache of gems! Curses, Team Lava - You got me again with your foul-smelling cabbage gem trap!!

Not really. Lol. Today was definitely all trick and no treat. I am still upset that I'm stuck with a level 5 orphanage I hate and fell into a gem trap today. But for this one I only have myself to blame. I remember how many people got caught by Ivy's bakery, so I KNOW better! But I still got in a rush and didn't pay close enough attention. So I'm just going to laugh it off. (Oh the poetic justice of the dialog saying that the building stinks!! :rolleyes:)

I am hoping that they don't limit the amount of cabbages we can store. This whole thing will be useless if it's capped at 5 or 10 when it's almost impossible to get the "prizes" without throwing at least 20. As others have stated, I plan to just store them up and get one prize per month.

None of the game tent's prizes thus far have been game breaking or provide any substantial advantage over other things that can be purchased with in-game coins alone. However, each prize is unique looking and it's clear a lot of people will get them for the appearance of the item. That satisfies everyone as S8 gets money as you are clearly meant to spend real $$$ to get the grand prizes. But for people who do not spend money they are no substantial (or even non-substantial) disadvantage as none of the drops to date have been very significant (petals, milk, etc.).

This may not hold true in the future which would really be the only reason that you should buy this week's building to begin accumulating a stash of "free" cabbages so you can buy some future, more important resource building. You will however be giving up your three daily "free" cabbages although those are never enough to get the grand prize anyway. This is complete conjecture though and the tent prizes may continue to be primarily decorative with a little bit of functionality thrown in.

You'll have to balance this against the slew of more useful resource buildings that have been released around the end of the year in the past. For example is this cabbage building more or less useful than a 2nd winter bakery? If you have a finite number of gems accumulated from troll trades, game installations, adventures, etc. spending 450 gems now on cabbages may not be as helpful as saving them for a future, unnamed resource building that'll be released this December.

Ivy's bakery has provided with me a very nice stash of skukupies though for a future time limited event. I've only gotten 2 super yummy pies since the bakery was released but I can forsee an update at some point in time in the future where multiple super yummy pies will be required to move through a goal (think any of the events requiring golden items).

Same here. I just followed the dialog box blindly until I got the "you don't have enough gems" thing. Then, I actually looked at what I was doing. Gah!

I'm still trying to make paper for the orphans. And finish the fairy workshop. Probably enough for another week. :-D



Is this highly overpriced cabbage house the only update today? I lucked out and didn't have 450 gems or I'd have bought it also!

I purchased Ivy's bakery as well, and I am enjoying the benefits of its drops. But when I purchased it, I KNEW it was a gem purchase, because I paid attention. (If you read the thread about Ivy's bakery, you'll see that many people felt tricked then too.) Not so today, I didn't come here first or read carefully, which is why I said I blame only myself.

My concern now is if S8 will allow us to store enough cabbages to actually win a prize (and that means more than 6 in my opinion).
It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

arikasi
10-15-15, 02:24 PM
I am willing to bet that the three free per day still happen. For those on the fence because of this reason, I am sure one of us who bought it will post tomorrow about whether the three free ones are still there, along with more detail about how the hut actually stores the cabbages.

Since I accidentally bought it I'm going to take a stab here to explain how I see it working.

I had not collected my 3 free today, so when I completed the goal and was given 5 I went to the tent to find only those 5 in the tent (so I did not get my three free today, because the game already knew I had 5)

The cabbage building has a 24 hour timer - S8 PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING THIS 21/22hrs like other 'daily' buildings - so when I collect it it adds one cabbage to my total. This means if you have 3 cabbages collected already you get a 4th, then the following day you have 4 and get the 5th.
But if you have 0 then you collect 1 before going to the tent, you get given only 2 of the 3 free daily ones, since daily takes you up to a minimum of 3 cabbages.

So once you go from 0 and collect your first 3 free daily ones thereafter, while saving up 1 cabbage per day, you never get your daily three until you have spent down to below 3 cabbages. (as I understand it)

You know, I've been playing CS almost from the start. I have the Valentine's Love Shack, I still can make Alicorns for 200 gems, etc. I also save my gems carefully and buy when needed. I looked at the cabbage house and could have sworn it was coins only. I would NOT have bought it otherwise as I H-A-T-E the Baron's tent and think everything available is ugly. If I could take it off my board I would.
Now, I see that all my gems are gone.
I needed an excuse to delete CS. I was so disappointed that FairyTale Wonderland was being discontinued and Bakery Story's glitch of not being able to gift back without visiting a friend ruined that game for me (after almost two years). So, CS was all that was left. It's been a good run, but enough is enough.
I need to go back to creating gifts with my crochet hook. This is the impetus I needed.
Thanks Storm 8 for the push to real life. You'll do just fine without me and my kingdom, bakery, and wonderland.

But I don't wanna COOK my turkcocken ..er, Chickeypea, as you say (which just makes me think of chickpeas and that's SO not the same as my turkcocken, LOL)....No, I want the actual ANIMAL in my B tent next month...all S8 has to do is take the current turkey-chicken from 2013 or whenever and add some peacock feathers to it... VOILA! My turkcocken! LOL!

But I digress, too (so easy to do on here when it's more fun to talk about stuff that's not on topic, LOL)... I *think* this cottage is similar to other limited-time goal items like Ivy's Bakery or Greselda's Fountain, which are still in the market after the goal expires. The only difference here is sadly, no 20-or-whatever gem rebate but a reward of 5+5 rotten cabbages. I think it'll be available in the market forever at the 450-gem price but you won't get any cabbages after these 5 days are up. But then again, I'm guessing; I'm not TL-staff, so... I dunno. LOLOL

zaccy678

I don't care much about the baron's tent, but I would have spent gems on this had it not been 450. That's way too much. This is good for those who enjoy the tent and have tons of gems and/or money to buy more. I'd rather save mine for something better.

Playing on a touch screen app. I've contacted them too see if they can help with the orphanage. I'm getting to the point I'm ready to pack it all in I was enjoying the game too.

My saving was: no room to place so i wanted to do that and recognized then the gem price (not enough gems too) so i feel really sorry for those who actual purchsed it and i cross my fingersyou get it back.
Dont know of the usefulnes cause i get 3 gems from the videos everyday and every now and then 30-75 from downloading so for me 3/4 of the 3 things i got from the tent were already free - i dont know if it's better to buy ,free" cabbage packs or save them up... Gonna think about it.

And question: is the item really switching when you dont spend at least 1 cabbage to start the timer ?!

I could have sworn I saw coins too. Wish I could go back and have a screen shot of it because it didn't look as clearly marked as gem buildings usually do. I haven't bought gems in ages, I had saved these from playing the games and from adventures and trades. At this point I'm not sure what they could offer for sale that would cause me to purchase gems in the future, right now I can't think of one single thing. There is only one reason there is no gem spend confirmation button, and that is so we will buy more after spending them accidentally.
This is the only game I play that does not ask "Are you sure you want to buy _____?"

After almost 3 years of playing Castle Story and being very addicted.. waking up in the middle of the night to collect from buildings, animals, working on goals and spending real money from time to time.. I think I'm done... I looked so forward to each Thursday at 3pm EST and would not collect on the 24 hrs items until the new goals were released if we had one but this goal did it for me. Can't believe that S8 would actually put out one goal to use up so many gems. Thank you for the pleasures of playing but I think I will start living my life without my castle friends. Good Bye!

10-15-15, 09:13 PM
Can we get confirmation that if we buy the cabbage hut, we can save up the 25 needed to guarantee the grand prize, i'm not buying it if we only get 4 a day, ie the 3 we automatically get and one from hut per day,with NO storage above 4.
Also will there be a storage limit, because i hope it's more than 25.
The quest to buy it states, "A specialized house just to produce and store these throwing-at-the-Baron-cabbages will be perfect"
Unfortunately I've learnt not to believe anything TL/S8 write in there quest logs, can anyone understand why being told you don't have to complete a step meant, you have to complete a step (IE the current Orphanage quest), and then expect us NOT to ask for confirmation to spend 450 gems...

Me too. I didn't realize it took my gems until I came here and read about it. Sure enough, my gems were gone when I went back and checked. I didn't expect a sale to be disguised as a story so I didn't read that carefully. There is a lesson in this, at least for me. I will never trust S8. Before taking any action it is clear from this fiasco that every screen must be grabbed and searched for possible hidden traps.

This sure sucks out all the fun I got from playing the game.

I kind of like my kingdom the way it is, and enjoy my wall and my friends in the game. What would happen if I just quit playing, but still kept up with my wall and sent out material requests for social purposes? I have been unimpressed since S8 took over from TL. There is the decline in quality of artwork and forcing the ugly tent on us without allowing it to be stored, and of course Walicorngate, all which would have driven me away but for my awesome community. If not for the community, this trick with no treat would have led me to hang up a "Closed for Remodeling" sign.

As it is, S8 lost future income from me, which would have been worth much more than the 450 gems they are probably celebrating about having tricked so many of us out of before we realized it was a sale trick or treating as a story.

Would it have killed S8 to offer this building openly under their logo as a sale? That is after all, what is is, a sale. I think it is fine for those who want it, and for those, I say great. Go ahead and buy it and enjoy your purchase. But for those who were tricked into buying it for gems instead of coins, please realize that some of us don't want to buy the stuff in the tent so it is not a value for us. I say S8 should do the right thing and refund us the gems.

Unfortunately they aren't known for doing the right thing. That is sad because this is a good game that could be great with a little effort on their part. I can't speak for others but I will spend more willingly on an honestly great game, than I will by trickery on a good game that has a reputation for unfair practices.

Shame really but too many accidentally sped up gems now especially with it being on an app on a touch screen think that they would listen as they are loosing more players from this. I think last week I sped up one of the horses by mistake for 32 gems for a hair a carrot and fertiliser ......and I was maxed out on the carrots why make a speed up option so many gems for so little of a gain.

we all know our master is both Jekyll & Mr. Hyde.
:rolleyes:

I'm sorry to hear some of you are upset about yesterday's purchase. A gem confirmation button would easily fix these trust issues. I am one of those who happily bought the hut for gems with a sober mind. I admit, after spending the last two weeks haunting the Orphanage every hour, I was hoping for slightly more story and entertainment this update than yet another building to regularly harvest. But after the initial disappointment, I concluded that the offer was OK for the long run. I see it as an intrinsic promise for new and better tent prizes that will make my realm even more boootiful :o

As for the demand for prizes with precious drops, I'm not that concerned. The issue with new ways of obtaining limited resources is simple economy really, inflation and devaluation. As long as I plan ahead and I'm not too far behind the avant garde players, I'll do just fine. Adamant is presently the new Mithril, that once was the new Silver etc. Give us a new adamant dropping elk and we will start yearning for that rare Impossibilium requiring 80 adamants to craft.

But I DO need the good looking stuff!
Ugly, stupid and boring prizes offend me. :confused::(:mad:

Yes, please, an elk! No need for it to drop adamant, so long as it's alive and moving:D

Deafening silence once again, just like every update where there's obviously more money for S8 at stake.

At the very least you could specify the maximum number of cabbages one can have at a time. This is good advertising because if that number exceeds the number of tiles in the tent you can market the building as a guaranteed way of getting at least one prize every 3 weeks. Good advertising = more money for S8.

But the tone-deaf silence is overwhelming and shows they were ill prepared as usual.

While it doesn't say how many it holds, the pop up I saw said it "guarantees" getting the grand prize every month.

You only ever get the first three cabbages refilled for free the very next day after emptying your storage.
This will not change whether you own the cabbage hut or not, whether you decide to buy cabbages, or whether you just decide not to use your daily three.
Good rule if you're saving from scratch: Let the new day refill your three cabbages, then harvest from the hut or buy additional cabbages.

Looks like the cabbages keep piling up. My guess is that you can hold 99 (or hypothetically 999).

I actually love the hut and for me its well worth it. In less than two months it will paid off. Each day i ll receive one cabbage (whivh is 10 gem worth) Thank you S8! Yes it costs gems, but i saved enough with the help of adventures and playing other S8 games . Too bad the hut wasn't released earlier.

If you do not mind telling us, how are the cabbages from the hut stored? Do they go into the inventory or do the go straight into the Baron's tent? Has the game changed it so that the Baron's tent allows the 3 free cabbages to build up over time? Or if the cabbages from the hut go into the Baron's tent do you lose out on getting the 3 free daily cabbages?

They go directly to barons tent( they do Not show up in storage)
I had three daily cabbages from yesterday, plus I collected One from the hut
So now i have Four cabbages. Free three daily cabbages didn't add up to that amount today.

I have 80+ adamants, no need for any elk. I bet for Annie is maxed on it, as well as on gems. Nice. Really. Not ironic at all, really nice.

What I really hate is someone trying to troll us with opinion trending issues from CM statements about economies, drops arguments and the long run theory. No need to treat screwed players as silly ones, offending them further than their limits :confused::(:mad:

Do accept your mistakes S8 and ammend ASAP


So true. I don't mind posters who bought it in good faith because they want it. Some aren't doing that I also agree. I agree there is no need to denigrate those of us who thought we were buying it with coins and discovered when we came here that we spent gems.

For me there is no long term benefit to having bought this because I didn't want to buy it and stored it because I don't intend to use the horrid hut. It is useless to me. I don't want the items from the tent. If I do, I prefer to buy cabbages.

There are no elk or mithryl dropping items in the tent. I wouldn't want them if there were. My storage is full if junk I don't want and can't get rid of.

Now, had I been offered a trading post where I could trade my useless stuff for stuff I actually wanted, in a sale and not a faux story, I might have chosen to buy it. But that didn't happen.

I would prefer to believe that S8 made a mistake. I would like to see them fess up and pay up also, to those who don't want this and were tricked into buying it by presenting it as a story. Paying customers have already left because of this. I had planned to buy gems in the next sale which showed up today, but I am not spending money on any S8 game unless my gems are returned. I am sure I am not the only one burned by this who will no longer bank gems in fear that they will be stolen by trickery.

I'm sorry to say, but I don't think ull hear anything satisfying. It's already late afternoon in Cali, and S8 is doing the usual, sitting it out.
There's enough info on the net when u research the company to help u understand their business practices. They have to make money, we all understand that, and this is the way they choose to do it.

As my nbr told me she bought FEW value packs recently (remember the v.packs offering 22 cabbages?) and she did have about 120 cabbages in her B.Tent. So that mean we can have more 100 cabbages , i think.

thatgoes for bought cabbages.. the three free ones are no longer given if you have more than 0 if i have understood post #126 right.
so that would mean you are being disadvantaged (again) if you have spend gems, wheather it is to buy the cabbage hut or value packs... bit ironical isn't it.. you are NOT rewarded for buying gems but punished by not getting 3 free cabbages daily, lol..

IF, and that's a big IF, a player goes to the baron's tent wanting to win the grand prize, they have to buy extra cabbages to have a chance to win, anyway. I bought the value package once, got one prize. The same money would have covered the cabbage hut and could be winning the grand prize every month instead of a one-time deal. The 3 free cabbages per day have never accumulated and so would never lead to winning the grand prize. Don't get me wrong, I normally use the 3 per day just to get whatever extra I can but I know it won't lead to winning the main prize. It's really not comparing apples to apples. I'm not taking up for S8, but rather this is for those contemplating buying the cabbage hut or not.

I'm not taking up for S8, but rather this is for those contemplating buying the cabbage hut or not.

This is how I feel too. I've bought three prizes from the tent since its been available. I think it will eventually pay for itself if there are ever any more prizes I'm interested in getting. I think given the option, some people would have chosen to invest in it because of that.

My issue, and apparently many others as well, is in the sneaky underhanded way it was presented. I so regret not slowing down and taking a screen shot of the market. I swear, it did not look like other gem purchase buildings with the gem showing up boldly. That, added to the fact that the pop up dialog (also wish I had screen shots!) made it seem like a continuation of the story line, seems like a deliberately set trap. I'm still getting the pop up to get the cabbage hut. NOWHERE does it mention gems.

The bottom line is this: in my haste, I didn't pay proper attention and I got caught. I can't really "blame" S8 for my mistake, but they are responsible for setting things up in such a way that encourages people to make such mistakes.

For me, the solution is to never purchase gems again. I just wish there was a way to keep the ones I still have (and earn from playing games, adventures, etc) safe until I choose to spend them. My advice to those who do purchase gems.....wait until you are ready to spend them before purchasing, then spend them immediately. We can't lose them to a trap, if there aren't any to lose!

Now I'm wondering if the 1 we get from the hut can be saved or do we have to use it every day??? I'm still crying over my lost cabbage!😭😭😭

I am amongst those that 'accidently' bought this, not realising it was a gem drainer; I blindly followed the instructions that popped up, and I acknowledge that I should have paid more attention. I wouldn't have bought it otherwise.

However now that I have it, I'm going to try to make the best of it, so I'm going to ask a dumb question - how do I store cabbages to use in the Baron's tent, as opposed to normal garden cabbages, or are they the same? If they are the same, then how do I use that supply in the Baron's tent, because all I see is a + button that makes me buy more.

I might have bought the cabbage hut intentionally, just not at this time. I had been saving up my gems all year and finally had 750 in case a good building (because I wished I had have been able to afford the winter bakery last year) came out at Christmas. Now I accidentally spent the 450 :( I never play the tent so its not worth it to me. However now I have the cabbage hut and have ZERO expectation of anyone getting reimbursed I will keep it out and use it. I think its a good building for those that use the tent, it just wasn't good for me at this time.

I just answered the questing that theres an ability to store more than 100 cabbages if you buy them or COLLECT from the HUT. I was happy to buy the Hut and want to save the cabbages and its good to know that theres no 99 limit like other items. I dont much care about 3 daily cabbages if i can have 30 of them a month now.

I've bought gems in the past. (won't be doing that again) And the free gift for me is 2 energy per video, it never changes. So there's no way to guarantee gems even if you could view the videos.

One of my neighbors (also a relative of mine) gets the videos--lucky enough to have the opportunity to earn 3 gems a day! I cannot access the videos--lucky (cough, cough) enough to get a "dud" button! We both play on an iPad Air. We have both purchased gems in the past. We have both purchased one Service Pack in the past. We have discussed this issue but cannot come up with a reason as to why she gets the videos and I don't. I simply do not understand why TL would randomly "exclude" some players from viewing these videos. Aren't these videos ads? Doesn't TL benefit from their players viewing them? :confused:

I bought the cabbage hut. If you want to purchase it, I would advise saving your 3 cabbages from the tent before you buy the hut. After purchasing hut, 5 cabbages will be given. Now a total of 8 cabbages. There's a task to throw 10 cabbages at the baron to earn 5 cabbages and that made no sense to me because I'll be losing 5 plus I'll be waiting 2 days to get from hut to make up the 10 cabbages. So I ignored it & kept my 8 cabbages. However, the tent no longer give cabbages because it's over 3. Cabbages are now collected once per day and stored at tent. I don't know if there's a limit to cabbages stored. I'll just wait and see.��

This is how I understand the tent works:

1. Once I visit the tent 22hr countdown starts
2. If I have less than 3 cabbages it is refilled to 3
3. If I want a different prize I need to re-visit the tent after 22hrs for new countdown to start
4. When I collect from the Cabbage Hut I get 1 cabbage added to tent
5. So far no known max limit on cabbages

Correct me if I'm mistaken.

This is how I understand the tent works:

1. Once I visit the tent 22hr countdown starts
2. If I have less than 3 cabbages it is refilled to 3
3. If I want a different prize I need to re-visit the tent after 22hrs for new countdown to start
4. When I collect from the Cabbage Hut I get 1 cabbage added to tent
5. So far no known max limit on cabbages

Correct me if I'm mistaken.
As I mentioned before, to maximize amount of cabbages stored, don't use the 3 cabbages given from the tent on the day of purchasing hut. (That is, if you wish to purchase it) After purchasing hut, 5 cabbages will be given as reward so that makes 8 cabbages total if you don't use the 3 cabbages from the tent.
Note: You will no longer receive 3 cabbages per day from tent. The hut will give 1 cabbage per day which will be stored at tent. Save enough cabbages to guarantee a prize, that means at least 25 cabbages. So that's 1 prize a month. I don't know if there's a max on amount stored. I won't use any cabbages unless there's an item I want so I'll save as much as I can. I hope this info is helpful.

For those who have any interest in what the Barons Tent has to offer, these two gaming strategies may clarify the advantages of purchasing the hut:

Without the cabbage hut, you can:
A1) throw 3 cabbages each day for collecting random material from the Barons tent (due to daily refill from the tent)
OR
A2) stay away from the Barons tent for 22 days and still have only 3 cabbages to throw (due to the fact that the daily refill never accumulates) Every top prize you desire will cost you about 180 gems.

With the cabbage hut, you can:
B1) throw 4 cabbages each day for collecting random material from the Barons tent (due to daily refill from the tent + 1 daily from the hut)
OR
B2) stay away from the Barons tent for 22 days and then have 25 cabbages to throw, thus winning all the random material on the board AND the top prize (due to the fact that the daily cabbages from the tent accumulate)
Even if you're having the worst of luck on the throwing board, you can still collect the top prize every 22. day without ever spending gems beyond purchasing the hut.


If you are not interested in the Barons tent, there is no advantage in buying the hut. My sympathies if you bought it by mistake.

You assume, like everyone else that one can accumulate 25 cabbages. While there appears to be no upper limit to purchased cabbages via gems/real money there is zero confirmation from S8 that one can actually accumulate 25 cabbages by waiting the requisite 22 days. As an example, one can exceed the 99 item limit for corn through the random materials collected in the Baron's tent but if one tries to harvest more corn when one is already at 99 corn the count does not increase.

We would presume that one can store 25 cabbages but given the complete and total lack of transparency or further explanation by S8 that is a very, very bad assumption to make. S8 clearly monitors and participates in this forum as they have on hundreds of other occasions and when there has been confusion, especially on items that cost real money (gems) in the past they have been relatively quick to provide clarification. That is after all good salesmanship. The complete and total lack of additional communication on this real money (gem) building makes any assumptions, such as being able to accumulate 25 cabbages a fool's errand since you are placing your faith in the same company that uses gem traps as a revenue generator.

Is the cabbage hut a good buy if the maximum number of cabbages you can accumulate (not purchase) is less than 25? What if you can only accumulate a maximum of 20 cabbages? Or 15? Or 10?

I think the goal to purchase the cabbage hut is very misleading. Ivy calls it "a specialized house just to produce and store" the rotten cabbages. That would suggest that you would still get the 3 daily cabbages in the tent which is not the case since the hut cabbages are stored in the tent.

Well I bought the hut ... collected each day and I've had no new cabbages show up in my hut if it a glitch sort it out as I spent coins for this bloody thing only to have gems taken off and still getting nothing for the hassle well and truly not impressed Storm 8 have truly let everyone down with this I bought mine for coins this I know but had gems taken for it now the bloody thing isn't explained and now it seems it doesn't do the job I'm truly fed up

"No point in trying to fix what we can't fix!" :confused: Seems rather cold if they're speaking to people who'd like their gems back and don't want the tent. So strange.

I've found all the dialog from this update to be oddly appropriate, considering how most commenters seem to feel. I can't quote it word for word, but Ivy refers to the building as "smelly". Considering how it seemed set up to "trick" people into buying it (releasing it as a regular update and not mentioning it's a gem purchase in the pop ups) I'd say Ivy is correct, something definitely stinks! :p The above quote seems appropriate for both the cabbage hut and the barons tent. Basically "you're stuck with it so you might as well make the best of it." Exactly what I intend to do....while also being extra careful, hoping I don't get fooled again.


Ps. This really isn't a complaint. I'm over it. I have 6 cabbages saved so far, waiting until I get enough to buy a prize. I happen to love ironic humor and the dialog in this "update" qualifies IMO.

The hut would be so much better if it was not on a 24 hr timer but rather matched the tent and had a 22hr timer.

Could someone suggest this time change to S8?

24 hour timers are so hard to collect, the extra two hours is much appreciated and give a player leeway to be able to use the building everyday.

I haven't bought the hut yet, due to the fact that it takes forever to have enough cabbages to get a guaranteed prize (since the tent stops giving you 3 cabbages) and because I'd really like some of the Halloween items that are in the tent now and I wouldn't be able to get them anyway.
I do have to say though that people 'accidentally' buying the hut isn't S8's fault. I've been playing games like Castle Story, Restaurant Story etc. for long enough to know that you always have to double check. In this case I looked at the hut in the market, saw that it costs gems and didn't buy it. Whoever bought it because they thought it was coins can't really complain because it clearly says gems.
There have always been quests that require buildings that cost gems (The barracks for example), so this isn't really something out of the ordinary.

My question is where do you store the cabbages? do you let it build up in the house or do you have to lose out on the three a day awarded to you if you don't use it everyday.

Cabbage count is shown in the Baron's tent. Once you have more than 3 cabbages you no longer get any free cabbages that day. Therefore you do "lose" out on the three awarded per day.

Rotten Cabbages is not stored in your inventory, you can keep track of how many you have in the Baron's Game Tent. You are only brought up to a total of 3 Rotten Cabbages per day. If you already have 3+, you will not receive the daily 3 Rotten Cabbage from the Baron's Game Tent. You can collect and keep more than 25 Rotten Cabbages if you choose not to use them and collect them.

We've forwarded feedback on the timer.

I have asked a few of my neighbors who purchased the Hut and none of them understood the situation either... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Bummer... I wish I could still get daily cabbages even if I have more than 3 saved up... Would make the purchase of the Hut more reasonable

Without the Cabbage Hut, you can only have 3 Rotten Cabbages to throw per day (unless you choose to buy more with Gems). If you have the Cabbage Hut, you can throw 4 a day. If you want to collect more Rotten Cabbages to throw at once, you can keep your 4 Rotten Cabbages, and then collect 1 a day through the Cabbage Hut until you decide when you want to use them. The only thing if you stock up on Rotten Cabbage is that you can only get 1 additional a day from the Hut, you won't receive an extra 3 from the Baron's Game Tent. This is because the Baron's Game Tent will only bring you up to 3 Rotten Cabbages daily, if you have more than 3, it won't add more. (Ex: If you have 1, it will add 2 to bring you up to 3. If you have 3, you wont' earn any since you already have 3.)

You don't see Rotten Cabbages in your Inventory, but if you want to see how many you have, just open the Baron's Game Tent and you'll see how many you have there.

Are you collecting from the Cabbage Hut for your 1 Rotten Cabbage before or after you use up your 3 Rotten Cabbage you have daily in your Baron's Game Tent? If you don't use the 3 given to you through the Baron's Game Tent and collect from the Cabbage Hut, you should see 4 total when you go through them in the Baron's Game Tent. Do you still only see 3 even after collecting from the Cabbage Hut?

to start the accumulation process, make sure you have your 3 free ones available and then collect from the tent. Get rid of ones there first. Wait for freebies. You may have to wait a day to get the 3 cabbages first and then collect from the hut.

This is not working!
I don't use the cabbages at all, have this building for 3 days now, collect daily and still see only 3 in the tent (before and after i collect).
Please fix this issue. (Yes, i restarted the game and the device too, many times.)

i am using iphone6+, iOS 9.0.2

just to clarify: you are not throwing any cabbages at all? Have you checked your cabbage balance before and after collecting from the Cabbage Hut? That's what I'd do and take a screen shot of your before and after.

keep posting, I'm working on updating the inventory guide, so I'll be here for another half an hour :)

SpiritWind00
11-30-15, 02:01 AM
Yes, this is correct.
I am not throwing any cabbages at all. I have checked my cabbage balance before and after collecting from the Cabbage Hut. It was 3 and remained 3. Next collect time is in 21 hours. i will post screen shots before and after i collect.

Yes, please do post, but create a new thread in the Bugs Forum so that the Community Managers can see your post and ask them to check your game. Sorry this is happening! Don't worry, we'll get it all sorted out. I'll keep an eye out on your thread and alert S8 as well. :)

Some people love it, others not so much. It depends on what level you are and if you want decorative items or items that drop little goodies. This thread (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?76392-Castle-Story-Building-Guide&p=1070491&viewfull=1#post1070491)tells you how the Tent works. Overall it means that once a month (assuming collecting from the hut for at least 25 of the 30 days in the month and save them up) you can get a grand prize. To me, it's worth it. you only need a couple of prizes to 'break even' if you compare it to purchasing cabbages with gems.
