Hi, BFGDeveron!

Thanks for stickying (if there is such a word) the thread. I also replied to the "See New/Improved Groupings" thread, in an effort to call more attention to it.

Hope it works -- this thread has been enormously helpful to a lot of us here, and it needs to be exactly where it is!

Thanks for the sticky!

Daphne girl pointed out I had missed copying 11.3 and 11.4, and LadySparkle55 found the third group in soggy bottoms - critters and former critters.

Please continue to either post or pm me with corrections and updates - thanks!

PS - The third group for gator wrasslin' has yet to be found. I have a feeling it's going to be something obscure, like "yard sale items" or "items that spark in the microwave" - something that comes up with simple dumb luck, rather than a systematic search.

Nevertheless, if you give a million monkeys a million typewriters ... You know the story. Someone is bound to run across the magic combination by accident, and I hope they will post here when they do!

In the meantime, if you want to help, I could use totals on the number of items in each subgroup. I think it is helpful to people to know what the largest bonus group in any given scene is, so they can go for the highest bonuses.

Elinu - Just wanted to reach out regarding your hard work on the bonus groupings threads. As you can see, I have few posts, however, I appreciate your work and wanted to say thanks!

I did have a question but didn't want to start a new thread and don't know if you or anyone else reading this may know the answer--how can a player get better than a perfect score in the Miss 3 mode of Dark Manor scenes? I have seen other players with higher than perfect scores and can't understand how it's possible.

Thanks again and Happy Holidays!

pcpat923, I asked the question for you (sort of) in the thread call Tired of the ticker. If you look at page 2 of that thread your question "may" get answered...

Thanks for the messages! I am still not up to playing much, so I will depend on you all for a bit to help fill out the lists.

What is the title of chapter 12.4 ?

Also, if anyone wants to give the number of items in each group, I will post.

Hi Elinu, 12.4 is called Tickle the Jazz Bone.

Elinu,

Thank you so much for all the effort that you have put into this. It adds a new and fun dimension to the scenes, and has definitely improved my scores.

I have not found a third category for this scene!


I would very much like to have the list for both categories! Particularly the metals, I'm not sure whether certain items qualify, eg the antique telephone, clarinet, and a couple of others I don't remember now- and do they have to be purely metal or mixed (pulley, scythe, crown etc).

In fact, it would be nice to have the lists for all chapters! I don't have any of them at the moment but could try- if the others agree we can share the scenes or something.

Great!!! Are you sure the scythe isn't in? It would be the same as the axe and the spear.

Thanks Elinu. I've been trying to reach my million bonus. This will help a lot. Appreciate the time it took to put those lists together. My manor name is 'All About Eve Place'.

Magnet, ship, pocket watch, binoculars, glasses?

Well, turns out that it's not so easy to compile these lists. So far I've played all chapters on a hit or miss basis, but now that I'm trying to organize a bit I either don't get the blitz (thanks to the good old ticker, most of the times) or forget the items in question before getting the chance to write them down !
