So here we go...

On Thursday, I finally decided to play WGO. Had then Helping Hand, that I also played, and then Birth of Goo, Lost Pages and Studying Luck, all played. I forgot to write down what the next one was but I ignored it as it was getting late!

On Friday, WGO again. I didn't play it and had a nice and relaxing day away from my castle! sunflower

Yesterday, got WGO, followed by Special Interest (oh! I was sooooo sure I would get Helping Hand!) and was too late to play ... Helping Hand!

And I am opening my game this morning and of course WGO is here.

So, it's the 14th day, I had WGO 12 times. Whether I play it or not, whether I play the next ones or not, nothing seems to matter. As I don't feel like it today, I won't write to the devs. Lets' see how far this can go! I am getting close to "almost 3 weeks" anyway! wink

Wow, your puzzle boy seems to be nicer than mine, I must have got the evil twin!! He refuses to give me diamonds usually. My average is 1 item per puzzle (I just checked and since I started taking notes, also 14 days ago, I played 276 puzzles and got 279 items, and diamonds 11 times). I am going for small items nowadays and playing cowardly/carefully/wisely (you choose! joy). Last time I tried to get an egg for a friend, I gave up after two weeks of constant losses (and won it on the wheel eventually grinning). I tried to be more aggressive these last few days and asked for bigger items (always different ones) and eggs, I got one winged guard (and hence diamonds once) and that's it. My last 20 puzzles: 40 wrong guesses. Got diamonds once but lost after that. I didn't include these last days in my stats relaxed. I think I got what you meant but don't seem to be successful whatever I try, so I shall go on playing for small items from now on, it is less frustrating wink

Oh, and I have stopped playing the side quests, they all want nasty ZZs. Maybe I'll start again soon, I am still undecided (but only need destiny keys for my friends and I still have some).

On a brighter note, Trina the Ogre has finally given me other quests than ZZs and had a nice mixture. Phew! I'll probably fall into a ZZs series soon but I am happy she gave me a nice little break with them! grinning

I've said it several times, this game hates me!! joyjoy But I am stubborn!! winkwink

Perhaps the game is trying to ask you something...

Like,

Panicked confusion - "What's going on?!!"

Sexy - "What's goin' onnnnn?"

Nervous suspicion - "Ok, what's going on here..."

Or perhaps it's just a general lament about the state of the world.

I've had In Service of the Record Keeper or Knowledge Hunter every day for about 2 weeks. I'm not doing either of them so I expect to continue to get them for several more days. 

Unfortunately for you, the game regards WGO as an easy 10 part so it can last a long time. Rare Editions is similar. During one of my loops I was fortunate to be caught in a Rare Editions loop. I burned amulets each day until I stopped getting it. One day I received Rare Editions 10 times. I did 17 DQs that day and burned through over 2000 diamonds. 

JUST SORT OF GLAD IT IS YOU NOT ME.  BUT THEN IT WILL NEVER BE ME.  I LOOK TO SEE WHAT IS BEING ASKED NOT HOS'S.  I AM OUT OF THERE.  NEVER DID LIKE TO BE TOLD WHAT TO DO.   NO JUST TOO OLD TO CHANGE.  I RARELY DO ANY DQ'S  NEVER THE CC.  NEVER OPENED ANYTHING IN TRINA'S ONLY DO WHAT SHE WANTS IF I NEED A KEY TO OPEN A NEW ROOM.  

I JUST PLAY MY WAY,  MORE LIKE THE GAME WAS WHEN I STARTED.  THE ONLY THING THEY HAVE ADDED SINCE THEN I DO DO IS THE EVENT ROOMS.

Haha I am not sure what the game is trying to tell me, but I sure know what I want to tell "him"! And it is neither sexy nor polite!!! innocent

Thanks for having moved the thread! I read "pleas" and thought "plagues", internal translator is corrupt!

Oh yes, WGO is definitely not the worst one to be stuck with, but 1) it is asking for too many airships and mostly 2) it is sooooooo boring!!!!!

I had other DQs for 3 days (not the nicest ones but yayyayyay!!!!!!!!) but since Monday, here it is again ... 7th day in a row now ... again .... so so so sick and tired!

I had abandoned the idea but am thinking again about writing to the devs ... Elephant, if you read me, do something to improve this!! Your players are unhappy!!

relaxed I was playing the same way (except for the CCs) but well, I have now reached the end of current content and DQs (and maybe even Trina!) are a nice way of keeping me entertained as doing rounds with no purpose is a bit boring to me. I (and so many of us) have done rounds and rounds to get coins for such a long time - before the event rooms arrived - that it has become hard for me to do that laborious work, especially as I don't need coins any longer.

I am thinking about moving the little game I have at work to my PC at home, but having two games still frightens me! Maybe I should do that ... <decisions decisions>

Ouch!!!! That's a nasty one!! At least I wouldn't be tempted to do it on week days as it would be impossible (without amulets that is) ... but ... ouch ouch ouch!! I hope you get out of that loop pretty soon!! Fingers crossed!!!
