To build a pond, you have to collect 10 cement pieces from your friends. Similar to collection-style games in FarmVille and other Facebook games, cement can be sent as gifts. Of course, you can also buy cement at a price of 1 Playfish Cash per cement. In addition, you will need 10,000 coins to buy the Stage 1 pond, but there does not seem to be a level requirement.
The Ugly Duckling costs 40 Playfish Cash, which is quite the price for this adorable little duck that you will probably want many of. We're still working on our pond since this has just released, but we bet some of you have already finished yours. Log in to Country Story now to check out the new pond building feature.
