Hi Suzanne!!

You and I are already friends and you are a Wonderful Friend!! 
Any of the Eggs, Winter or Other Holiday Items, the iOS Consortium Team Members, Catheryne, Miss Tracy, and I , will be more then happy to take in as donations. We are always so appreciative!! 

If you have a complete list of items you would like to donate, please just PM them to me. If there is anything that we may be of help and assistance with to you, please just let me know!!

Currently we are involved in a time sensitive situation moving around some inventory that belongs to the Consortium from a special helper’s game before it might get lost if that particular game should no longer be accessible. So as soon as we take care of that little issue hear_no_evilsee_no_evilspeak_no_evil, we will all be able to help and assist you with anything you might need.

But in the meantime, please do send me a list of the items you have to donate to the Consortium, as well as anything you may need help with yourself!! It would be my pleasure to be able to give back to you for such kindness and generosity!!

I hope you are staying safe and well!! 

XOXO ~ Debbie 

PS...Thanks Jennifer...I definitely am able to help her get the goods out...but of course, not in the felonious way!! grin wink

Hi Debbie; Before I found this forum - spring of last year - I had 1 friend and didn’t know a lot of necessary info. I now have 77 friends and 2.7 million coins. I don’t really need much help - I have all the pets and all but 1 cushion in the rooms. If Trina ever stops demanding so many shards I’ll soon have it! The ice breath exchanges really help.

I try to gift 15 times a day - my day starts at 8p.m., then I always git\ft at breakfast and usually between noon and 8.

I have one each of these eggs -snow griffin, parrot, manticore voracious 

2 of Pegasus and sharp-eyed snail, and over 300 hundred snow White eggs and red yarn balls. 

I have quite a bit of inventory from the special events.

I’ll gladly gift what I have whenever they appear on the wish lists of my consortium friends.

AS you know, I play as Suzanne and my I’d is i1952977.

Hi Suzanne, 

I’ll put your gifts on my list to add to my WL, when we have finished this bit of helping out. You are fabulous. Thank you so much for your generosity. It is so very kind of you to think of others. 
I’ll be guided my Debbie on which items I need to collect. So we can co- ordinate the collections.

Thank you once again.

I do sell my Airship items, but I always hold back some in reserve. Right now, I am reserving 25 of each item, so that I have enough for a ship. Now, if I have more requests (Trina likes her share too sometimes) for Airship items...then I put the said item on my Wishlist. But generally speaking, this has worked for me. I get my coins, but CMA too.

I didn't/haven't had much guidance as to what & how to do things, so I have figured it out as I went along. This is why I have come find out the information and maybe make some new friends. Seems like many of mine are 'not playing' (they have that little red player instead of a green one), and then there are those people who only play during an 'event', or they have 10 different games going on. <geesh> One is enough for me!

Another thing, that you suggested crafting the Ancestor's Spirit (which I did many times) until I ran completely out of the Stamps required...that was so hard to get my level back up again. If I do that again, it will be only once.

I don't seem to have the kind of friends that are willing to part with a couple of them. I try to spin that wheel, to get my own eggs...doesn't work very often.

I would love to have some guidance, hints, help, etc.

I try the Puzzle kid too, the best I have gathered is that whatever hand the item is put in-it usually comes out of the opposite hand. But that doesn't always work either...but its the best way I have found. 50/50 chance? I'd give my way a 70/30 chance.

Just sent a friend request I play as Jim j (i572228)

I would increase the number of airship items to at least 50 of each.  My latest shipment (gets 342 wheels) required 43 Bronze Amphora, 34 ship's lanterns, and 37 Genie's lamps.  but I only have 3 in inventory, after having to sent two ships for a 10 part daily challenge.  Lucky that Trina also needed airship items, so........  getting to the higher level usually requires more airship (I have seen 415 wheels in one shipment(

And I may adjust my 'reserves' as I get to higher levels. I am on Level 58 right now.

Usually there are no ships that require more than 25 of anything, thus far.

This is what I have found and is 60% effective.  If the first item is in the child's right hand (your left), then the item will be in his left hand.  The pattern is then opposite hand, same hand, opposite hand.  The pattern breaks at the gem, that is usually in the same hand, even if it should be the opposite.

If the first item starts in the left hand (your right), the the pattern is same hand, opposite, same hand.

It is only 60%, because some times the pattern is same hand for the entire exchange.

Thanks, I've found a similar pattern.  Then every once in a while it is all the same hand...

cool pattern - but I found it doesn't work when the diamonds come first.

I have written down the sequence in a notebook each game. Each letter stands for a shuffle - start in right hand -R - move to left hand - L - move back to right hand - R  - to make that RLR - the last letter being where the reward ended up:

Example. after doing three puzzles





Using this method, I determined that the first hand (RRR) started with one and the next puzzle game played, changed to the other,  the pattern being that it took turns - the LRR pattern was always LRR, and when it did change, the LRL would happen three times, before going back to a long chain of LRR. (this was with the first hand only) - when I missed, I do another try and have a separate page for that since it does NOT conform with the pattern (the second try)- but it has its own pattern. But the patterns can and do change and get trickier - that's why it's a good idea keeping a record to refer to, for those who are serious about winning items from this game. :)

Most every puzzle game I play, I win the diamonds using this method. (This really helps in not only buying personal items needed but gifting friends, especially those who have seasonal items I don't yet have in my inventory as a newbie - like Christmas ones).

I get the 2nd item more than half the time.

I get the 3rd item (a unique ticket) approx. every 12- 15 games. (sometimes more, sometimes less depending on if I was able to fill in the pattern to figure it out.)

I get the egg I choose, (usually one a week, if playing a lot of puzzles each day) - to convert to money, give to friends, or send to the consortium. I take turns. :)

I keep a record and watch to see the pattern that forms, then work with that - it stays on track for at least several games, and when it breaks the pattern, there is usually a slow shuffle at the end (sometimes I spot it and know the item will be in the other hand opposite of what the pattern is shown, and most of the time I'm right.)

The pattern usually changes each game day change (also sometimes when I first open the game in the morning.) The last hand is the trickiest, and I still haven't figured out the pattern for that, since I don't often write down the fourth hand (as I usually don't get that far, only if I win the unique ticket! lol) So with the 4th, it's often a guess. ;-) (Though I always look back in my pages to find if there was a similar pattern shown or won - and if there was, it usually is right to stick with that.)

Oh- and I only "try again" if I win the diamonds first try. If I win them second try, I don't continue with the game - I just cut my "losses" and get the diamonds. ;-)

Hope this idea helps someone!
