Thank you, whitebutterfly54! Received constructively and as very sound advice. I hope others read-n-heed. Yep, admit I started attempts at short-cut. The beauty of the graphics in MC (I like them) is so great, I want to see what's here. Then, I reflected back on my early days in another game, ART, I was almost in panic-mode when I wanted to make progress and was stopped by lack of resources. As that game was dying, I had more than 5,000,000 coins plus many, many other resources ... with nothing I could do with them but let them go into the darkened night. I have plenty of time (recuperating, disabled Vet) to look, see & be amazed. I do get frustrated in this game when I click, click, click & click - go to as many as eight levels - then get stopped by time-out for as long as an hour. I don't control that so I realize I have choices, live with it and do something else or drop out entirely. Still here (at level 29 now)! Still learning. I expect someday I will be able to pass on wisdom and support to some other 'newbbie". Will do so quite willingly and remember all of you who were there for me at my start-up. With kindest regards.

“I do get frustrated in this game when I click, click, click & click - go to as many as eight levels - then get stopped by time-out for as long as an hour.”

I was searching for an answer for myself & saw your post.  If you look in your inventory, the last category to the far right is Amulets.  There may already be Energy you have earned.  There are also two different amulets.  One gives you a  HO Scene (Hidden Object Scene) no cool-down period for 1 hour for the price of 100 energy.  The second gives you a HO Quick cool down period (cuts the cool-down time in half) for 1 hour for the price of 47 Energy.  You earn Energy playing the game, but can only earn a given amount in a 24 hour period.  I forget the amount and don’t know if there are specific ways to earn Energy.  I have been playing for a few years but didn’t realize there was a rhyme or reason to the entire game until recently.

Everyone may have a strategy for using them.  I only started using them when I got into the higher levels.  Maybe around 75.  I used them occasionally for zoom rooms that required 2 of each item.  That way I could click on find and be taken to the HOS that would get me that item, collect the items and immediately go back to that room to try to earn the 2nd copy of the item.  With only 2 items being needed, I only did that when I’d get too excited about advancing.  lol. I began holding off because, as Susanna502MC said, by the time I would do my rounds, the first room I entered that gaming session would be open for play again.  Now I run into rooms that might require 3 each of several items.  I find myself getting impatient again and using them again.

Happy exploring!

Hey Pete, from some of what you are saying, I think you are heading in the right direction. Slowing down, not trying to speed through the game, just taking your time, is the way to go.

I also second the advise of not relying on puzzles are ways around. Do the HOS instead. Not doing the HOS you lose out on a stamp, an airship item, and up to 50 coins. These all add up over time, and you will need them badly.

I can't help you with eggs for cash (don't have any), but if you put an Ancestor's Spirit (I think that's what it is called) on your wish list, I can gift you those. You can sell them for 2000 coins.

Also a good way to build up money is for every time you have to spend (like your 10,000 to open something), stop doing the quests and just do HOS until you have replaced that 10,000. Then carry on to the next quest. That's the way I did it. It take me 4 years to get to the end of content, but I had amassed millions in coins and plenty of stamps along the way.

When the autumn event starts, stop doing quests and just do the rounds of the HOS in your friends private rooms. That will help you amass a huge amount of coin. 

Whatever you do, just keep enjoying the game and you will be fine.

Hey Kacey - sent you an invite.

I'm new to friending and need friends also.  My friend code is 813473 and I'm on Level 35.  This is my second time through the game but I didn't use friends the first time except John of course.  I started playing shortly after the game first appeared and reached  somewhere in the 70's I think in July 2017.  Then I hired a computer service  company to  upgrade my machine to Windows 10 from Vista and could never play games after that.    I finally got a new machine this year and started playing again and decided to try friending this time.  I am retired and play 2-3 times each day. I'll send you a friend invite.
