Funzone Prices Slashed!
Even though were able to sell only two of the first ten reduced-price Funzones, we’ve gone ahead and reduced the price on over 100 more Zones, effectively immediately.
If you already hold the deed for a zone, the new pricing applies to you, too. We’re sorry, but no, it’s not retroactive.
We’ll be putting the deeds for the un-rented zones up for auction, a few at a time, over the next few weeks. Since some zones will be in high demand, we think this is the best way to decide “who gets it”.
Sooo, keep your eyes open for the Zone you’ve always wanted! With these new prices, you can’t afford to wait, because we’re sure someone else has their eyes on it too!

THERE.COM and HOME (Excerpt from the Duda Beach Gazette)
Those are the two words to remember: THERE.COM and HOME. When you are wondering where the people are, remember that there.com is your home away from real life home. As such it operates like a home would expect to be operated. Ask yourself this: Is there a constant parade of people and parties and fanfare going on 24/7 in my real life home?

Only on special occasions do you have company over.
