    Do any of you actually buy those promos they have? A new one popped up today: Rex, just as my Zurg battle started. I admit, I was tempted! I've always kinda laughed at these people that get sucked into spending money on games. But for the first time, I can see the temptation, lol.

    I have. Bought Rex and then Maximus. The bonus gems and reduced price tempted me into it! With the gems from Rex I bought Pluto and his house, with the accumulated ones from just playing, the events and Maximus bonus I bought a few of the attractions. Sometimes it's worth putting money into a game, especially for a Disney game for an obsessed Disney fan such as myself (and I'm guessing many of us on here :))

    I bought Rex and Pluto and now regret it as I am not playing the game as much as I thought.

    At this point, I play the game multiple times each day. I have also bought every promo that has been offered to me- Pluto, Rex, Wall-E, Maximus- while I have been able to buy both Boo and Merryweather with gems earned in game/through the promos. I've come to really enjoy the game, and it's fun to unlock new characters and open new areas. I'm also a completest, at least when it comes to characters. My point of view on it is that I enjoy the game and would like to see it continue. There are still SO many further characters and areas that can be added to the game- so I want to support the game so that Disney and Gameloft have reason to continue it.

    I have not yet and I am currently saving my gems for either Rex or Boo. If I do achieve that goal of lets say collecting enough gems for Boo I may purchase enough gems to get Rex.

    I have already saved to get Pluto into the game. It takes awhile, but I am not spending cash.

    I've bought the promos. I found Rex particularly helpful in getting Zurg.

    I have not purchased anything, but it has been tempting. Unfortunately not purchasing forced me to not fully take advantage of the 50% off deal a few weeks ago on attractions because I was saving for a character and knew I would have only what I needed available until the next update.

    I've spent money to get the extra characters and attractions that are gem only - if that makes sense !!
    I play the game a lot and like to have everything going lol

    So last evening I broke down and bought the Jack Sparrow Promotion Pack. I thought he was too important not to have in the game and without him it would limit me a lot as to what I could do. So I got Jack Sparrow and the 100 gems. I used the gems with others that I had and got The Kraken as well. I have also decided I will continue to save gems for Rex.

    Yes, I spend money on the game. I enjoy playing the game and am happy to support it so it will continue and expand. As I posted elsewhere:

    If you're asking do I spend actual cash on a meaningless online game? No. Of course not.

    No, I haven't spent any money on the game. I have spent a few bucks on similar games.

    I'm surprised you're playing the game since it's so "meaningless."

    I wasn't going to at first, but then I realized people buy buttloads of video games and look at the price of those. Speakong of spending money, new promo Merryweather + 150 gems for $13.99 (Canadian..I think Americans get it for $9.99). She is 240 gems so I have enough to get her, just wondering if its worth the splurge to get her and the bonus gems.

    Most time killers are meaningless. That's the very essence of a time killer.

    Same here. I've bought all the character packs and then some extra gems here and there. :)

    Not yet, but I generally end up with a few iTunes gift cards from the holidays, so I will probably then. Found money plus wanting to support the game so they keep making updates. I picked up both Pluto and Zero just with game play gems. If nothing else, I wouldn't mind Jack Sparrow or Wall-E. Couldn't care less that I'm missing Boo and Rex. Merryweather bugs that I have two out of three but probably not enough to shell out gems. I would probably wait for another 50% off attraction sale and blow the rest there instead.

    I've bought a few characters now. Pluto, Rex, Zero (as well the Halloween Concession stand, Haunted Mansion, Parade Float) I don't mind putting some money into the game. I'm finding it very enjoyable. I try not to go overboard with spending money. I think I have spent $25 in 2 months? That's not even one hours wage for me and I get hours of enjoyment out of the game every week. Given how much I play, I don't think $12 each month is that much.

    I might buy Jack Sparrow or Boo depending on the next special deal I receive.

    Pretty much everything recreational is. People spend money on all sorts of things for pleasure and enjoyment. There are worse things than spending a few bucks on an online game. Better than gambling it.

    But then, at least with gambling, you have a (minor) chance of winning it back.
