Zynga deals FarmVille players 20 Farm Cash for Mystery Game bug

Farm CashAre you missing a few Farm Cash, by chance? If you used your complementary Mystery Game Dart in FarmVille over the weekend, then Zynga has something to return to you. FarmVille Freak reports that several players who used the supposedly free Mystery Game Dart doled out to players this weekend were actually charged 20 Farm Cash when they threw it.

Of course, it was a bug on the company's part, and Zynga in turn is crediting those affected with 20 Farm Cash. The fix comes in the form of the below pop-up window in the game, though we imagine this credit is only for those affected. So, no extra compensations for damages or emotional distress? (Hey, it never hurts to ask.)

While it's certainly nice (and expected) of Zynga to restore players' Farm Cash, this probably won't exactly get players hooked on the Mystery Game. And our guess is that this temporarily botched freebie was intended to do just that. Oh well, even a multibillion-dollar company can't win 'em all.
