Trina and the Private Room – When Trina was first added to the game, she was introduced to players at Level 6. This feature was moved to Level 13 in July 2016. A bubble will present to allow you to open the Key Master Shop for 100 coins. Inside the Key Master Shop will be another bubble to open the Lucky Diamond slot machine for 300 coins. You get 1 free spin within 24 hours; you can reset the timer for diamonds. With Trina's arrival, you now have the choice to “disenchant” an item for shards or sell it for coins (originally, you could only sell them for coins). 

Trina's quests will comprise of 2 requests. As you advance in the game, her requests will increase. The most she has ever requested in quests that I have done is: 300 steering wheels, 200 shards, 20 postcards, 50 HOSs, or 20 ZZs. As a reward, she will give you coins and 1 Golden Key. (The amount of coins you receive from Trina will continue to increase until it maxes at 300 coins. But you still only get the 1 Key.) 

You do not have to do her quests; they do not advance you in the game levels. However, they can be fulfilled while leveling up without much difficulty (except for the shard requests). You can open her request.....look at it and either accept it or click on the X to close it out. If you close it, or don't accept a new quest when you have completed one, she no longer appears on the left of your screen. You will then need to go into the Key Master's shop just below the Belfry on the Castle Entry to engage her again.

Your private room also becomes available with Trina’s introduction. You must do one of Trina's quests to unlock it. Additional Golden Keys are secured by doing more of Trina’s quests. Inside, if you click on the “off” button at the bottom, you will see “slots” that can be unlocked for various amount of Golden Keys. (Also, while the fields are activated, you can see a pencil in the upper left corner. You can backspace out the generic room description and enter your own personalized message.) There are “upgrades” you can make to each basic slot item in the room. (The upgrades are listed later in this section.) 

You will notice butterflies sometimes flying around in the room. Some of them, when clicked on, will give you a Magic Shard (but not all of them – this is a random occurrence). Also, you will notice a chest toward the bottom of the screen. If you click on your chest, you will receive a shard, coins, pet food, diamond, or a stamp. The butterflies regenerate after 2 minutes; the Mystery Chest unlocks after 3 hours (Or you can open it during the recharge time for 3 diamonds). 

After clicking on butterflies and the Mystery Chest in your own room, you can access one of your friends’ rooms and do the same thing. (It does not take anything away from your friend.) Sometimes you will need to click on several friends before you will see a chest in their room. 

There is an icon on the lower right of the screen that looks like Just John. If you click on that, your friends will be scrolled along the bottom of the page. This will allow you to select one of your friends to see how they have decorated their room (or to see which room they have chosen to display).

Original Room -- 1 key to open the room 
Gargoyle - 0 keys -- ghost book, snow globe album, egg album all for 1 shard each 
Chair/Table - 0 keys 
Lamp - 2 keys 
Backdrop - 3 keys 
Pet Stool - 1 key 
Rug - 5 keys 
Fireplace - 1 key

**Upgrades for all items (except gargoyle) are 10 shards; 1500 shards; or 20,000 coins 

Additional info regarding the Gargoyle.....
The Gargoyle was added to the Original and Christmas Rm 1 when the Spring Rm 1 was introduced. For THOSE THREE ROOMS, when you activate the slots, it will show that the "blank book" is already owned.....HOWEVER, if you then select it and click on the check box, it will give you the option to purchase it for 0 shards.....if you do this in each of those rooms, you will have added 3 furniture upgrades to your achievement count in Furniture Finder. ...... There are currently 93 / 100 items that can be purchased in your private room (as of October 24, 2018) <--There is debate about whether this is still available as some appear to be able to select the blank book and others do not. So, advice is to try it to see if it works.

Features of each room include: 
Christmas Room 1 – You can click on a friend’s tree and leave them a gift under the tree. They receive some in-game item and you receive a Santa’s medallion as a thank you. The “gifts” are the Gift for a Friend pink boxes you occasionally receive at the completion of an HOS. The gifts are anonymous – the recipient never knows who’s gift gave them what. Also, you can click on your own tree (when presents are under the tree) to retrieve the gifts you received from friends. 

Christmas Room 2 – There are 3 HOSs in this room (you can visit all 3 in your own room and in the room of each of your friends one time daily). When the room is maxed out, you will receive 250 coins from completing each one. So you can use the Winter event to really stock up on coins if you have a lot of friends and a lot of time.....to leave your friend a gift, you click on the open Santa sack.

You can also enter the terrace in your own Spring room. You can enter each terrace HOS one time during the 24-hour GMT day.

Mini-events and Castle Challenges – These features were introduced to the game in June of 2016. Mini-events become available at Level 4; the Castle Challenges are not available until a player reaches Level 10. (If a Mini-Event is in progress when you reach Level 4, you must then log out of the game and back in for the Mailman to send you the message about the Event.) 

A Mini-event will typically last for about 2 days (48 hours). During the time of the event, you will be tasked with doing one thing…..collecting morphing flowers, going into HOSs, going into ZZs, etc. There will be a personal goal (with a reward after each of 3 increments). Then there will be a global goal to be met. The Mini-event goes across each platform – with different goals for each. (It is based on the number of people who play the game on each of the platforms.) Each person’s progress is added into the global progress as each player reaches a goal. In past events, if you continued the activity after you meet your final goal, all additional efforts are added into the global total. If the global goal is met by the combination of all the players’ efforts, everyone who participated in the Mini-event gets the global reward. 

The Castle Challenge is a 30-day event. Each day a different task is “unlocked.” You must do all the tasks in order, and you get no credit for doing a task unless it is unlocked AND you have completed each prior task. So, Day 1 the first task is unlocked. You can work on it, but you don’t necessarily have to finish it before the next day‘s task is unlocked. However, you must finish Day 1’s task before you can progress to Day 2. Some of the tasks are timed, so they must be done within the time limit listed. Rewards of an avatar are earned by completing 10 tasks. So, during a Castle Challenge, you have the opportunity to get up to 3 new avatars.
