I have complained and cried like a baby about New Orleans. It is much more difficult than previous Cities.

To all newbies to NO: Get used to it. That's what I did. I'm all the way through level 79. Sometimes I burn up all three lives in a couple of minutes, several times. It's like a slot machine. You have to get lucky and you have to use boosts sometimes. If you need coins go back to Sydney and rake 'em in. Be patient.

I posted this elsewhere on this forum and bowiecowgirl suggested I should post it here for those currently struggling in NO.

I wanted to see what it would take to conquer NO - complete Intern, Architect and Master for all levels including the HH side trips.

This was using the basic 3 lives. No real money spent. I've been playing GD since late 2014.

Here's the report of the cost of conquering NO:

- It took 5 months to do and I'm pretty good at GD. (On my other unlinked device during this same period I made it through 5 cities - completing every level - and have almost 41,000 coins and a bunch of boosts earned.) I play on breaks during the day and for an hour or two at night.

- It cost all of the coins won on every level in NO to buy resources and boosts after multiple attempts to win without boosts. That's 183 levels at 100 coins per level = 18,300.

- It also cost all coins received as a reward for meeting challenges. There's at least one section where the reward for collecting items was 1000 coins.

- I started NO with over 18,000 coins. I ended with 14,466 for a cost of about 4,000 coins.

- It cost all coins earned from selling resources every day for five months. Estimating 166 days at an average of 60 coins (because the actual amount varies) = 9,960.

- Approximate cost in coins to conquer NO = 33,260.

CONCLUSION: Learn from my insanity. Do the minimum you must to leave this city behind. Subsequent cities have some nearly impossible levels, but they are passable and if you are patient they won't cost you every coin you earn.

Impressive Lawaters !
The only city I completed so far is Tokyo. I'm currently in NO and your post is very helpful. Shipping pink resources from the other cities is the only thing I can do in order not to spend coins( have only 8895 coins for the moment).
So, I'm going to follow your advice and do the minimum in order to get out this city as soon as possible .

Level 32-2 "eli173" I know you posted your tip in March of last year but I had to make a comment, the direct deal is 1,000,000 bricks and blue caps and I must have been really lucky, 15 seconds in I was able to make a bolt ?? and take out the paper, the rest was easy (and I suck at timed levels)! Also thanks for all your great tips about N.O. Knowledge is power!

I'm with you Marie, just finished the 4th monument and if I'm lucky I might get out of New Orleans by Labor Day! I am taking Lawaters advice and just doing the minimum to get through.

Well there you go folks, make sure your shipping ports are maxed and replay the easy levels for resources to drill for green gems.

GamingGrampa,

This information is invaluable seeing as I have just started New Orleans. Methinks I will be replaying other city levels and shipping a lot and spending a long long time before leaving New Orleans and moving on.

Well there's not that much you can do except choose a board that has moves which will move several fishes away from those ledges and then start freeing the fishes from the middle top and work your way down.


I'm guessing that this is the level you are talking about. As stated above you need to restart the level until you get a board that allows you to move most of the fishes off the ledges to drop them.

Re:New Orleans - Level 84

Please please can someone tell me how to get past 84? I don't know what boosts to use, if any. The little paper things that are held with a paperclip repair themselves too quickly and I can't match anything nearby to get rid of them.

I HATE NEW ORLEANS!

Okay this is pretty funny. Some pages back I saw someone say that as soon as you post here asking for help you'll solve the level that you're stuck on. So I JUST posted that I was stuck on 84. JUST now posted it. And then tried it again and PASSED it!! hahahaha.

You'd better believe that I'm not trying any more of 84. One level of it is enough.

And I still hate New Orleans!

I can’t get pass the pelicans eating fish to finish level 1 in new Orleans. I have been on this for days. Getting so frustrated I think I might just quit the whole thing. Any suggestions?

Csmaupin, I am guessing you probably mean Helping Hand one, not level one, as you mention pelicans etc. A mod will have to help with that, or someone who is at the same spot as you as once a HH level is completed, we cannot go back and ever look at it again, so there is no way of helping with this one, but mods can check them out for you, so if one doesn't help you on this thread, contact them directly, links in the thread called 'active moderators'. good luck.
