    Hi Ganz can you give me a hint of what item is retiring from Spree, My computer has a hard time working spree. It is not from the fast food or arcade theme is it? I need a lot of those pieces and I can’t get the whole themes in a month. I love the slide! Thanks for unbanning me the next step for you guys is to enlarge text size so it NEVER happens again. It will make it so much easier for kids/teens like me who have a vision disability they can’t help.-Atom

    Hi Ganz! The rarest item I ever found by myself was the Hot Tub Rare. I hope I can get another one of those eventually. The rarest non rare I found by myself is probably the original penguin PSI. I heard from my friend it is priceless and I got it for just winterfest candles and coupon,. I didn’t know what it was. Hurray for my online BFF’s Mark, DF, Lamb, Gold, Snow, and Sweetcupcake for looking out for me! You are all so sweet. Thanks a million for helping me. Now I know what items are I can make better decisions.

      The rarest item that I’ve ever owned (and still have in my Egyptian themed room) was the first exclusive I got when I adopted my Large St. Bernard dog back in ’06. It’s the Neon Palm Tree that was retired about…4 or 5 years ago I think. It’s one of my favorite items. :)

    Hi Ganz! I was wondering if you can increase the font size on trading cards and pet codes. The print is really small for me as I have a vision disibility. I emailed you 3 times but got no reply. I got a pop up 2 times about getting banned for 24 hours and that with repeated times I might get banned from the site forever. I can’t help mistyping i was basically putting card to my face.

    So game for as long as possible? JK but creating games would be fun but what I think I really want to do is become a film artist (okay point made, but for me I love to write scripts, film, and edit. Even though I have a horrible editor it is practice. Whats odd though is how the editor is a “movie maker” yet it doesn’t have proper frames)
