Yes you can. And as with anything here, it’s a question worth answering just because people have been asking…
Each of the big, expensive aspirational buildings can be sold for 25% of their original price. They then reappear in your building menu, and you can purchase them again, rebuild them, and collect the XP.
But why would you do this? The simple answer is to accelerate yourself towards the next bonus level if you’re a level 29 player. While players at lower levels who are perpetually short of cash may find it astounding, longer-term players at level 29 often have more cash than they know what to do with. So just like the Wind Socks and Weather Stations in yesterday’s post (http://wp.me/p35pG7-23O), buying something that gives you an XP boost is essentially a way of turning game dollars into donuts.
The XP from each of the aspirational buildings is as follows:
- Escalator to Nowhere – 10,000 XP
- Popsicle Stick Skyscraper- 20,000 XP
- 50-foot Magnifying Glass – 30,000 XP
Of course, with the 3-day build time, selling and rebuying the aspirationals takes a bit of patience. But it can certainly be done.
