Is there any way to start over? Uninstalling doesn't work. I'm at Level 7 and if I knew then what I know now..... :-)

Thanks!

I'll go back and replay and let you know. I *think* there was a paper clip in the pocket of a coat but I'll make sure.

Trying to get in Anne the Thief's locked apartment. Tried the balcony, windows, vent and electrical box. I'm stumped. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Check the second post down. Is this what you wanted? There may be some misspelled words or MIAs but I'll fix those with the next update.

Apparently "eight" is being read as the musical symbol as that's what all the items have in common. Bless me and my logical mind.

But not everyone has played long eough to have scores. And the game is for everyone; not just us "old timers."

Ditto.

And since Daily Quests add stars......??? Oh, well, it's back to 1: Open Game; 2: Get Star; 3: Reply to any Friends' requests; 4: Close Game.

Same here. Maybe we have to buy gold to get the daily quests. Just kidding ... or not.

Updated May 7, 2014.

Since no longer available, I thought I'd repost the list without the Spring Collectibles. I purposefully *did not* change the MIA status of those which require playing slots to obtain.

Please let me know if you see any errors so I may correct.

Check your coins before and after you open your Messages. Sometimes I've not be credited until I check Messages.

Like April said, at this point anything said about the Claim button would be guessing.

As kittykora said, quests, mainly. Some mini-scenes were opened during the Spring Event. And, the object you need will automatically be in the upper left corner of the appropriate city/state. Run your cursor around the location and you'll see question marks pop up. These are the areas where mini-scenes will open.

Just keep playing and eventually you'll receive the quest you need.

Oh, and the mini-scenes don't open in order from Nevada/Red Mine, onward; they skip around.

Oh, dear me... $1/$2 on those? That is reserved for Ran, Jambiya
or even the Kurki Knife to help the new people; might even throw in some brick, lumber or paint collection items. But those others have resources other that a small amount of coinage associated with them definitely, worth more. I have a slot machine to feed while helping the newbies. <w>


Dirk said his items weren't worth auctioning. I was pointing out they were.

I have to agree that between quests it gets pretty boring. So I only play the daily quest and sometimes put items up for auction.

I have all the Collectibles which provide $$ and building materials highlighted on my spreadsheets. Since I have plenty of those, they're the items auctioned at (I hope) prices low enough so that newbies trying to complete Achievements can get the Achievement rewards.

I guess that now that I'm at Level 81 and have plenty of coins, building materials and resources, I am not as greedy. I also remember that as a Newbie, I didn't have the coins to bid in auctions if I wanted to complete Quests and upgrade buildings.

If I were new, I'd cash in my Building material and resource-giving Collections and play Mini-Games (especially the Tailor Shop). Then I'd auction the coin-giving Collectibles so I could upgrade my buildings.

There's a complete list on Page 11. If you send me a PM with your email address, I can send you my Excel spreadsheet.

OddlyEnuh wrote:<snip> Lorretta, I think the info you are looking for is on the spreadsheet already. Did the link I sent you not work? What do you mean two separate lists? I have started to answer this and so far have gone in three different directions so I don't suppose I understand <snip>.


I'm not looking for anything. I was just using myself as an example of what a majority probably want: Collectibles and where to find them.

I have my own simple mini-game list with Store, Level and Collectible. It is two columns and can be sorted by Store/Level or Collectible. If anyone wants it, PM and I'll send the Excel spreadsheet.

The OP asked for help developing a mini-game list and you have a comprehensive and more detailed spreadsheet on Google. I assumed she was asking for herself and not you. Thus, "two separate lists."

PS: I find the extra information interesting and appreciate the effort it takes to make such a comprehensive list.

april3850 wrote:Ok Oddly, you and Daisy need to get together on how you're going to do this. You are both doing it different ways. I will try to form my lists both ways and hopefully everyone understands. Like I have stated several times in this thread already, I rarely play mini games anymore. And when I do I only play for the stuff I need and always use a keepsake. I am just doing this to help out you guys with your spreadsheet. It is costing me a lot of time, resources, and coins so I hope its helping.
Also, like I said earlier, I thought that I had all but a few of mine at Master level, but in doing these lists, I found some that I didnt have mastered because I never play them. Especially in the Photo Shop. Ok here comes the ones I did today. I hope it helps.



I'm sure it's helping. Someone correct me, but isn't it two separate lists? Why not provide information for the list that would do *you* the most good?

Like Oddly has said before, a majority probably prefer the simplified lists over more elaborate ones.

I'm not detail oriented so all I want to know where to find what so I can build mini-game resources. And I want to know which Collectibles give coins, bricks, etc., since those are the only ones I auction... along with those which provide gloves since I hate most of that game.

As an aside, the letters confuse the heck out of me....may be my age. I prefer numerical levels; i.e., 1/5 for Trainee and 5/5 for Master....and everything in between.

Just my two cents.
