None of the Pirates Day collection items drop easily. Most require more than one round.
I had to play Canada 4x4 times to get that pearl.
So no, it's not unusual.

I'M SORRY ABOUT THE ERROR. I COPIED THE TEXT WITHOUT READING IT THROUGH. I DID NOT THINK OF THE FACT THAT IT WAS VALID FOR 2015 ONLY.
THANK YOU FOR THE CORRECTION GULFCOASTGUPPY!

SUMMARY:TO PLAY PD A PLAYER HAS TO HAVE THE FIXING THE PLANE QUEST COMPLETED SO THAT THE AIRPLANE WORKING AND AN ABUNDANCE OF FUEL STOCK.

SPAIN OPENS FOR FREE BUT IT TAKES 35 PLAYS AT THREE FUEL EACH TO REACH PROFESSIONAL LEVEL TO ENABLE ONE TO GET

TO PREPARE FOR PIRATE'S DAY
•ONE WILL WANT TO HAVE ALL AES BUILDINGS TO LEVEL FIVE AND CUSTOMIZED TO PIRATE DÉCOR, AS WELL AS, ALL LOCATIONS IN THE TOWNS. LEAVING THE LOCATION IN SOMETHING OTHER THAN PIRATE AND THEN SWITCH WHEN THE QUEST APPEARS IS WHAT THE FIRST THREE DAYS QUESTS ARE COMPROMISED OF. THERE JUST IS NOT ENOUGH TIME TO GET IT DONE DURING THE 10 DAY EVENT.

TAKE NOTE THAT THERE ARE BUGS THROUGH OUT THE QUESTS - COMING UP MISSING AFTER GAME LEFT OR JUST PLAIN DISAPPEARING.

SOME FOLKS MOVED HARDWARE STORE FROM PIRATE TO THE YELLOW PALETTE AND LOST THE BUILDING COMPLETELY. IT WILL REAPPEAR WHEN WINTER ARRIVES.

•ALL COUNTRIES NEED TO HAVE PROFESSIONAL LEVEL SO THAT PICKY MODE IS OPEN. IF YOU OPEN SPAIN AHEAD OF TIME THIS WOULD BE TRUE OF THE COOKIE JAR COLLECTION.

• A LARGE SURPLUS OF FUEL IS SUGGESTED, OTHERWISE YOU WILL BE PLAYING IEI OVER AND OVER AGAIN TO TRY AND COMPLETE THE QUESTS FOR THE COLLECTIBLES. THE NICE THING WAS THAT ALL THE COLLECTIBLES WERE AVAILABLE FROM DAY ONE SO YOU CAN GET A HEAD START AND HAVE THE COLLECTIONS DONE BY THE TIME THE QUESTS SHOW UP AT THE LATTER PART.

THE EASIEST PART IS THE MIDDLE WHERE YOU JUST GO PLAY A PARTICULAR PLACE.
REDEEMING THE COLLECTIONS EARLY WILL NOT MAKE THEM SHOW UP ON ACHIEVEMENTS BUT ONCE THE QUESTS APPEAR THEN THEY WILL BE CHECKED OFF THE ACHIEVEMENT LIST.

IT IS BUGGY SO THERE WILL BE PITFALLS THAT CAN NOT BE AVOIDED BUT THE ABOVE DONE IN PREPARATION WILL GET YOU IN A GOOD POSITION TO COMPLETE THE EVENT AND GET THE GOLD.

On the Wharf, did you have a look in the crate, where it shows the skull & bones and the text "what an odd symbol" ?
I remember from years ago that some people had problems with their quests if they did not do that.

All of them.
Each slot will give you one part when you play it long enough.
If I remember well (it's been a long time), you have to match 3 on the gold and the star slot and match 2 on the coin slot.

The Social Code thread is a good place to find new friends, however, the friend codes there do not work for iPad users.

A reminder from a message of 2 weeks ago:

for that purpose, but it's old now. Not much chance that people are still playing.

Are you sure you're playing the right mini-game ?
I think the top right piece is the game requiring 14 threads, but better double-check yourself.
Anyway, some people had to play 50 times or more for the last piece in Teodi's, so 7 times is not much. Don't despair to soon.

Yes, it makes a difference.
The iPad version of the game is not the same as the PC game.

You should have (or should have had) a quest to find them.
If I remember well, they were in Portland, Oregon

It depends on what kind of restart you want to do.

1. Start from scratch:
Click the gears, choose Settings, and then New Game (in green).

2. Restart but keeping your coins, gold and collections:
"
Turn on game, log in
Disconnect from internet
Hit NEW GAME under the gear on top right side of main screen.
Play a few of the quests
Reconnect to the internet

You will lose all building supplies, inventory items, upgrades, and resources

THERE IS NOT GUARANTEE this will work but several others report it works. If steps are not followed exactly it will not work and you will lose the coin, gold, and collectibles.

You can't.
Oldstein Bank, Tempe, Arizona and Christmas Alley, Helena, Montana are the only cities where you cannot open the mini-scenes.

Go back to where you got the poker chips (Carnival, Kansas if I'm not mistaken) and see if you can win them once more. Then try the Bar again.

General rule: if you receive an item to open a mini-scene, you must use it immediately or you may lose it.
Sometimes you can go back and win the item again; if not, you have to restart your game completely.

All except "Guises of Ran the Owl". You can't complete that one and Odin doesn't ask for it anyway.
For the special collections, it is best to wait until Odin asks for them.

The answer to this type of problem is always the same:
Go back to where you found the tool (in your case: the magnifying glass) and see if you can win it again.
If you can't get it again, you are stuck and you will have to restart.

Rule: if you win a tool to open a mini-scene, always use it immediately, or you may lose it.

Here is a link to a thread of someone who had the same problem almost exactly 2 years ago:

It is a long one, but has very detailed information.
