The Make Your Friends Stronger item for the week is the Mountaineer. If you want it, you need to spend real cash or find a friend who will give it to you. The stats aren’t any better than items you can buy in the Marketplace for 35 reward points.
Since Zynga will probably keep this ridiculous feature around a while, I decided to figure it out. To learn how it works, click the yellow help mark.
Clicking the “Go To Deal” button will take you to the Free Gift Page even though these gifts are far from free. Three friends will be randomly and automatically selected for you. You can delete them by clicking the red X and select other friends by clicking the “Select More” button.
You will be taken to the Send Page of the loot item. The more friends you select, the more it will cost but the discount per item also increases. You can select a maximum of 10 at a time. You will only get the item if you buy the item for at least 7 friends.
The following chart lists the number of items, cost and the discount you will receive.
|# of Items||Cost||Discount||Item For You|
If you are a collector, the only options you have to get this item is to spend at least $25.62 or receive one as a gift. You could always buy the item from your mini for $4.15 and send it to yourself. The option to stop collecting things is also available. It’s free to just look at the image.
