Bonus game

[Post New]by nwl43 on Aug 14, 15 10:35 AM
I cannot believe this. I don't have all the stamps and am blocked from playing the bonus game. I don't see any way to get them without replaying the game. Seriously?? I AM NOT replaying this game. If I had known this I certainly would not have purchased this game.

Can't see any reason for doing it this way. The collectible portion of the game is important to some, but not all players. The stamps weren't particularly fun to find anyway. I only purchased this game because I enjoyed the first ones in the series and was hoping ERS had redeemed itself with this one. This one however is a new low in the series.

I was confused. The statement that you cannot play the bonus game without 24 stamps was referring to a different bonus game. Guess they should have used a different term for dunder heads like me. So sorry for the confusion. See Valdy's post below for info regarding the "other" bonus game.

Edited to correct my misunderstanding.

THANK you for posting. This really makes a difference to me. I am glad that I have finally made myself start reading the forum before buying.

I think you will find that the main bonus game has nothing to do with the stamp collection. The "bonus" game for the stamp collection will be an entirely different "little" game you can play if you collect every stamp.

To play the main bonus game, go to Extras, and click on "Play" at the top left-hand side.

Thank you Valdy. When I finished the main game, I clicked on "Collections". It stated that in order to play the bonus game I needed 24 stamps. Guess the use of the term "bonus" game confused me. So sorry for misleading info. I will edit my original post.

You are quite right, nwl43. The devs should have used a different term for that particular extra. I too wasn't quite sure whether the stamps were part of the main bonus game until I checked the Extras, and saw the "Play" button for the main bonus game.

When there is something special attached to getting a collectible, the devs should give us a means by which we can return to the scene and find the object.

Not everyone wants to replay an entire game....and if we have paid for the CE, we should be able to access all portions of it.....not have it tied to the success of another puzzle or requirement.

Wilhelmine, There are only 11 stamps in the main game. The other 13 are in the bonus game (the actual one). They are fairly obvious and easy to spot.

And you can't overlook the stamps. They are always in a hiding place where other objects, which you need to find, are hidden. So in fact, you don't even have to look for them. They always appear with another object you need.

You find 11 stamps in the main game, and the rest in the bonus game.

You can access the bonus game by clicking on "EXTRAS" and clicking "PLAY" at the top left.

In my first post in this thread I mentioned that the main bonus game can be accessed by going into Extras, and then clicking on "Play" at the top left-hand side. That's the main bonus game, which has nothing to do with the "bonus" game for the stamps.

the "bonus" you get by collecting all of the stamps is pretty disappointing...just an endless match 3...
