Hi L_Amour,

If you mean here in the forums, that's something that may be available in the new forums coming soon. You can find more information about that in the discussion here.

I hope that helps!

When we level up, shouldn't our energy be replenished?

Energy gets replenished to 100% when we level up, meaning: it increases to 50.
So, if you already (still) had 50, nothing will happen.
We can increase our energy to the max of 100, when we claim energy gifts from neighbours. Then you have to play first, before you can claim the rest of your energy gifts.
I have to say though, my energy sometimes also didn't get replenished after leveling up. I've already posted about this in the techn.issues thread.

Hi, I enjoy this game. It would be even better if I could figure out hoe to expand my grounds! I see it listed in the bonus section of the chapters, how do I earn this bonus? Thanks.

Hi CBpuzzler

Welcome to the Pond!

You gain access to the Green House and the Carnival of Fear scenes once you expand and open the plots in your Manor grounds that contain these features, you should see them half hidden in two separate plots.

To expand, you need to pay by gold or silver. The gold is a relatively small sum and will make the area immediately accessible to you. You need to pay a comparatively larger amount of silver and wait a set amount of time before you can 'Summon' the area and start building on it.

To start this process, just lick on patch of land which is adjacent to one that you have already open and pay the fee, it is as simple as that!

Hope this helps!

Please.........I need to reach ALL my friends to return their generous gifts. I understand you are having difficulties resolving the scrolling issue but my guilt is making me consider halting this game until this matter is resolved.

Is there a DM 101 forum somewhere? I've enjoyed the search scenes, and the building and stuff, and the graphics are STUNNING, but I'm losing interest because I get to play for 5 minutes and then just sit and watch walkers go round and Tesla surges until I accumulate enough energy or silver to do something else. I still don't know how to get gold other than to buy with real money, which makes it not a game, to me. (Didn't stay with CCGs for the same reason.) (Kinda like the Yankees, some might say...)
I don't understand the whole neighbor/gift thing either.

Thanks. I'm glad so many people are enjoying it.

I just started the game and I am loving it! I have one question, does the Spinner attraction collect money? I have noticed that all my other attraction do. Help!!

Hi Cookie8459,

Welcome to the bayou....I mean forums!

So if I remember correctly the spinner is granted as a reward for completing a task. It does not earn you money like some other attractions but placing it in your Manor will earn you JuJu and Xp.

If you are ever unsure about what an item grants you, feel free to add the item to your inventory temporarily and click on the golden i that appears to get an exact breakdown of its benefits,

Hope this helps and happy gaming!

Hi Gypseroserao - Have you backed up your game to Facebook? Once you do that, when you go into the game, just click on 'load game from a difference device'. It should then load your current game. HTHs

Hi gypsyroserao,

Welcome to the forums!

Please follow the excellent advice Snoopy_1 has provided above.

First sync your current game on your iPhone by pressing the Facebook button on the main menu or in the options menu. Once you log into Facebook through the game, it will save your game to this profile.

Then start up the Pc version and again log into that same Facebook account. When you start up the game on you PC, it should then load the game from your iPhone, with your progress, Juju, XP and money intact!

If you have any trouble with this, please feel free to contact our Tech Support Team who will be glad to help!

Hoping this info is useful and happy gaming!

Totally agree I am not going to pay to play this game ongoing I lost interest when I was asked to pay for energy and stuff. BIG mistake bigfish we like you because we pay then play. Come on do something about this.
WE ARE NOT GOING TO PLAY this on Facebook it is another Gardens of TIme completely why I came to Big fish. I didn't want to have "friends" popping at me for asking them to play or give me a cake or something. I won't pay anymore than the £10.70 I already paid the full price is £15+ you have lost a customer.

Actually you can play for free - I am doing so on the PC version. Doesn't go anywhere near as quickly as my iOS version, since I did buy some gold in that version. But it can be done!

I have been playing for about a week for free. Utilize the blitz games you play when visiting your neighbors. Add neighbors too. I have over 200 neighbors now. I do not know if there is a limit to friends to add. I have never bought gold and I play for hours. I play through BF game app on my PC. I do want to buy gold later but am content to play the way I have. I do realize it is a slow process but it is working. I earn coins, gold, XP, and juju, and still play the chapters. I am on level 17, almost at level 18.
