How many useless items do you guesstimate you have in your Inventory on Mafia Wars
? For many players in the 100s it could very well be past one thousand. Thankfully, Zynga
realized this and has introduced a new feature to the game: Trader Goh's Pawn Shop
. Found in the Marketplace and slowly being rolled out to everyone, Trader Goh (get it?
) will take your old, rusted items and give you some shiny new weapons, armor, vehicles and animals.
Interested yet? Then join us behind the break to find out how it works.
After Level 20, players will have access to the Pawn Shop. Once there, you'll be able to scroll through several items that have already been made available through the shop. If you're willing to make a trade for an item, you'll need to choose items of matching quality and quantity. For instance, here I'm trading for a Man Opener, a weapon with 63 Attack and 40 Defense. In order to make a fair trade, I'll need to give up two items of Common quality (Gray) and one Uncommon item (Green), so I choose the Lucky Shamrock Medallion, a .22 Pistol and a Luxury Yacht.
However, every trade includes a Reward Point transaction fee dependent upon the , which is certainly a bummer for those who don't pay to play. Though, if you've yet to buy an item thus far and are already a high level player, you've surely accumulated enough Reward Points to make at least a few trades. And for those who just want some item fast, all of these items are available for straight Reward Points.
After clicking the "Make the Trade" button, those old busted items are destroyed, I'm one Reward Point poorer but one item richer. Just like that, I can tell all my friends that I made a trade. Many are going to cringe at the growing Reward Point transaction fee. This could have easily been one helluva feature, but to force players to pay up when they're already giving up items might be asking too much. Hey, at least it beats paying in full. Right?
