What is considered a "new day" as far as achievements go   Achievements and Musings

Question - 

As far as the achievements which talk about doing something X days in a row (i.e., move the Knights, and spin the fortune wheel) when exactly is it considered the next day.  I have always assumed it is when the Daily quest runs out, and a new day starts then and after a few minutes you get the 3 daily gift boxes pop up.  Is that correct?  I smack the Knights over and over while I'm playing in case I'm wrong because I had a problem with that achievement once setting me back to day 1 when I was on day 6 or 7...

Is that correct that once the new daily quest starts at 23:59 and the gift boxes pop up, that's the next day so you want to smack the Knights and spin the wheel when that timer runs out?

Hope this made sense the way I asked it...

and to all my fellow Jewish co-players, happy Hanukkah!!!

Lisa, that's correct. Each "day" is considered to be the game's day and using the timer on the Daily Quest is a good way to keep track of that.

Good luck!

easy way to remember (besides what you already do) it's 24 hours. Depending on your time zone, it's the same time everyday. I am in central time zone. Used to be 7 PM. With time change it jumped back to 6 PM. So keeping track of when the clock resets on the daily quest will let you know when you should check in.

Hope that helps

From the MC Guide (I highlighted an important part)..................


Knight Lord – these are the knights to either side of the Castle entry. Move them x number of days in a row for each level of the achievement. If you miss a day, it resets to the beginning of the current part you are on. (The 24-hour day starts at GMT day roll and concludes when the next set of "new day" presents arrive.)

Yep, I smack those Knights every few hours stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes.  I hadn't missed any days and it reset me but so far it's going in the right direction.  I had the same thing with the fortune wheel and I had used that a bunch of times - both the free spins, and a few extras every day - but again, that's going in the right direction.

Thanks!!

You're welcome, happy to help!!

Hi, Lisa

I have a tip for you.

When you complete the first cup of the Knight achievement (by moving it 7 days in a row), collect the first prize and move the Knight again. You will see that the 7th day becomes the 8th. Do the same for the second cup and you will earn two moves in one day. The same applies to the Fortune wheel. Don't forget to check it out because both have different days to complete the second cup. Good Luck!

That's interesting,..

I actually reached out to Elephant Games and they are able to restore my Achievements to at least their prior levels before my crash.  Since I had already completed the Night Mode one, knowing it will eventually be reflected in my current achievement list as completed, I disabled that sucker right away.  Same thing with feeding the Jack in the Box.  I had already completed that achievement, and he's such an annoying bugger!  So I had already completed the Knight achievement and the fortune wheel one, but I'll continue to spin and smack until the achievements are fully restored wink.
 

Anyway, the lady from EG said it can take up to a week to restore my achievements plus she is restoring lost avatars and is able to give me back all my event items which were lost and BFG was unable to restore those three things.  One thing I am doing differently, though, is taking my time with unlocking the puzzles.  Those were locked, and I had the first 20 opened, but it's not a big deal.  

Have a great weekend and STAY HEALTHY!!!

Another way to remember to hit the Knights everyday ~~~ When you are done playing for the day or when ever, always set your scene back to where the knights are. Gentle reminder to hit them big guys!

Good luck!
