Local Gyms

This is where you can sign up for a Gym to train your stats in.
Woody’s Work Out Club
This gym is for levels 1-9 and costs $100 for a pass. You don’t need to buy this, because you automatically have a pass to this gym when you first start playing (You can buy it to can switch between the two gyms once you are level 10 or over).
Average Joe’s
This gym is for levels 10 and over, it costs $25,000 to get a pass. It is very worthwhile going to this gym. Instead of costing 5 energy to train, it will cost 10, but it costs half the amount of happy and you get more of a boost for each unit you train.

Here you can view all of the Bounties placed on people.
To Claim a bounty, click [claim] on the bounty page. It will ask you if you want to hospitalize the player and claim the reward now, click > Claim the reward.
If you win the fight, and hosp them, you will then be given the reward. If you hospitalize the player, without clicking [claim] first, you will not be rewarded.

To place a bounty on someone, click > Put a bounty on someone, at the bottom of the Bounties page.
The minimum bounty is $10,000 x their Level. You can put the price up as much as you want, in order to increase chances of people taking the bounty, and you can place as many as you want (You still have to pay for each).
You will also be given the option to put your name as the person who placed the bounty, or anonymously (The name will be displayed as ‘someone’).
A player can only have 10 bounties on them at once.

If people pay 3x the bounty, it can be removed. To do this, click [Buy off] next ot their name on the Bounty page. Nobody receives their money back if you use this option.

Beware! Some players, especially level holders, will add themselves to the bounty page so people attack them and lose. Checking age, rank and crimes can be a good indicator of if you can defeat them or not.
You don’t gain exp when people attack you and lose when trying to claim bounties, so there’s no practical reason for them to do this, but it still happens.
