This thread is my tribute to the General. 

When General Hobo_Joe first tickled my curiosity bone about what it costs to play each level in the game, I wanted to figure out the GROSS as well as the NET costs. Unfortunately, that really is not possible. Even though I kept track of the amount of coin you received from the character at the end of the quest, that really doesn’t tell the whole story about net cost. 

You also receive coins at the end of each HOS – and that amount will vary based on how far into the HOS you have gotten. And, as you level up within each HOS, there are bonus coins given…..each person will receive them at a different time. If you never max out the HOS, your amount of coins and bonus will be different than someone who has made “the rounds” to gather coins and max out the rooms. There is also no reduction in cost for coins received as bonus for crafting items, feeding pets, sending airship, etc. because all of these amounts will be random and different. 

Even the “gross” cost is somewhat relative because you may receive some crafted item from a Wheel of Fortune spin and thereby avoid the cost when the character asks for that crafted item. So, these totals are based on what it would cost you if you had to pay for everything.

In addition, the level costs will be somewhat “relative” because I may have reached the end of one level at a different time than other players. For the most part, my levels coincide to what is listed in the Strategy Guide. However, I did not do each character in sequential order – instead, I opened all characters with whom the Professor asked me to visit. I went as far as I could go with each character, went into any remaining HOSs, and waited until I could start again with the characters. 

But, the bottom line is that the total game cost will be the same for EVERYONE …. With a bit of variance on the individual level costs. 

It should also be noted that original players and those who completed the levels more than a year ago actually incurred a higher game cost. As I went through the game, I noticed that many of the duplicate requests that were listed in the Strategy Guide were reduced to single requests. The levels 34 to end of current content have been adjusted in the Guide to reflect these reduced numbers, but the earlier posts by lady_sabelle remain unchanged (levels 1-33). 

The notes after the level cost are the number of each type of stamp you need for that level. 
wh = white (plain) 
bl = blue (unusual) 
gr = green (rare) 
br = brown (unique)

Totals for all levels are as follows: 
Total Level Cost – 6,161,635 
White stamp – 5,668
Blue stamp – 2,968
Green stamp – 1,745
Brown stamp – 922


For those who are interested, you will get back from the characters a total of 585,318 coins. But the numbers above do not include this coin reimbursement. 

And if someone is in contact with the General.....please tell him I have answered his question.

Someone asked in the original thread if the total cost included costs to decorate private rooms? The reply to that question was as follows:

As stated in the first 3 posts to this thread .... the "cost" is what it would cost you for opening all areas, HOSs, and ZZ .... as well as what it would cost you to craft every item the characters are requesting.......any cost you incur by spending extra to spin the Wheel additional times, play dice, buy furniture for your rooms, etc. is relative to each player..... and it is not a "game" cost. 

Most players will not actually be paying that entire cost because they will have won some crafted items from the Wheel of Fortune, friends might gift a few, and those who have feeder games can send them to their main game. 

The "reimbursements" mentioned in the total at the end of the cost posting ONLY contains the amount of coins you get back from the characters and Pinfeathers when you complete quests..... that is a concrete amount..... all players get that. 

However, the reimbursement does not include any coins you get as a bonus from crafting, bonus coins when you reach each stage of the HOS completion toward max, coins you may get from pets, coins from the Wheel (hitting the stars), coins from morphing flowers, etc......... these are all relative and will not be the same for each player, so they cannot be computed/tallied. 

Hope this helps to further explain.
