Wow, you grabbed that list fast!
Nice.

I knew we were grabbing those lords and ladies too quickly.
Oh, well.

Let's hope that the Trade with Children challenge actually registers

We've had that challenge before, so should not be a problem.


Beating the troll at dice 5 times IS a new one, sure hope it's a typo on the developer's part.

Feeding SPRING EVENT pets rather than just any pet is a new twist.

Needing to beat the Troll FIVE times is the one that has me sobbing. That and the 7 airships I'll be sending out, not counting any that might have to fly to complete a DQ.

Beat the Troll 5x!!!!!!!! And so close to the end of the Challenge time!!!!

That one is by far the worst......not much wiggle room if you come up empty multiple times like I generally do!

And get 4 gold chests from pets?????? All I can say is that they need to be a bit more forthcoming to get 4 of them!

With the diamond bounty that is the puzzles, I'm not worried about the Troll. We can afford to accelerate the wait as many times as it takes.

I'm much more worried about the 23 trades with the kids plus the 4 spring items to craft. Combined need to 23*7 + 15 + 3*20 for a total of 236 flowers and sweets. Add to that the DQs that may need more of these same items and I guess it's back to HOS cycling.

Put the objects into 10 different zoom zones to open them up and get what is inside.


Well.....correction.....you COULD put a Torch in the Burnt Tree 10 times to open it 10 times.....doesn't have to be a different ZZ....

as far as the children trades go I don't do the daily quests when unless required to do so during the challenges that way I have enough inventory. Try to think ahead since my time is very limited to play now

Thanks, why don't they just use the same wording like for day 15. Oh well, this challenge looks like it will keep me busy

Because they're not the same thing. Task 10 is focused on the number of zoom zones opened. Task 15 is concerned with the number of items used to open zoom zones.

So for task 15, you could open the Burning Tree 30 times, or you could open the Chained Chest 10 times, or open the Guarding automation 6 times.

Day 15 wants you to use 30 objects. That means if a ZZ takes 3 items to open, then you would only have to open that one 10 times to finish. NOT do 30 ZZs.

Technically, it's not the same thing.... you could use zoom zones that require 5 or 6 items instead of like the burnt tree that only requires one item.... Day 15 says to use 30 items... so, if you open a zoom zone that needs 5 items, you only have open it 6 times.... (as opposed to opening up the burnt tree 30 times)...

eta: HAHAHAHA.... we all typed at the same time....

"Spring is Sprung!"

I wake up to a nice sunny morning and have my first cup of tea for the day
I turn on my computer and I see a little bright light on the first screen of my MC right hand side icon
Lo and behold we have a new Castle Challenge!
I gulp and return to my power up my beloved Forum to find that one of our dedicated archivists tiramaSue has published a list 5 minutes after the start of the new MC day!!
I scan the list and weep!
So many airship items, so many "gets" and even "collects".
I have another cup of tea but with two teabags this time as it dawns on me that I have to cancel all my proposed holidays for the next 30 days (apart from Easter itself)
But a big thank you to the Developers for enriching my MC life as I now have an extra purpose in collecting my carrots!
And three more costumes to add to my wardrobe
