Scarbulous is apparently shutting down their facebook app. I was mid-game and as far as I can recall winning too. You can still play on their site which I find weird.

This is not the first time companies kill potential cash cows. A thing I find silly to do at best. An analogy will help clear things up.

Say someone grew a whole field of corn on your land, better crops than you ever managed to grow on the land in the last five years. What do you do? Do you:

  1. Chase him off, sell the corn and enjoy a one time profit.
  2. Reach some agreement with him and let him continue successfully growing corn on your land while you collect a monthly check.
  3. Burn the corn and shoot the other guy torture his family and swear vengeance will be yours forever.
  4. All of the above

There is no "correct" answer but I'd go with number 2.
