It does. Click on the Paws, and you will see a number next to each bag. The only ones that don't show a number is when you already own the pet. Then you just "set" that pet as your pet and then you see the number of bags still available on the main scene.

Is it just me, or does anyone else have issues with the extra large areas defined for the places to get items? I have lost count of how many times I've tried to click on a flower only to accidentally open up one of those areas by mistake even though the flower wasn't that close to the area in the first place (especially in front of the castle gate where a lot of them are on the ground).

I also agree with the scrolling in the gifting area. It would be nice if you could click on the name in your friends list on the left and have it auto-scroll to that person in the gifting area as it's much easier to navigate the friends list.

The everybody needing items from the same HOS is definitely frustrating and I agree that it would be nice to spread the quests out over more HOS to keep us interested.

Hi Deveron...

Nice to see you again.

--- --- ---

mj14... it's not the flowers that I want to click on and click on something else, but an area I want to click on and then by mistake click on one of those boxes on which you have to add items to open it to give you an object.
That happens to me quite frequently in the "Throne hall", where I want to click on an area just right of Lord Chamberlain or what's his name (it's the HOS with the moving spider), and instead click on that box below that area, which opens with 2 double-rings and 2 blue flowers. But that's it.

You are very welcome, AnnaDownes01.

With a new game it's easy to overlook certain things, and it sometimes takes a while before you find your way around.

What's with the needing to delete friends thing? Why do people need to delete friends? Do list of names in your inventory bother you this much? You can't even send messages in this games, only gifts. Why would you want to delete friends?

I hate the wait and there's nothing to do while doing it. In other games, even if I'm out of food, I sometimes can purchase it and many times get it from winning prizes. Plus I have the choice to spend all my energy on one hog scene, not the obligation to play all scenes once per hour.
I mean, if I'm looking for something in a specific scene, in games where there is energy, I have the choice to spend all the energy I got on that one specific scene.
I find everything extremely slow in this game and very difficult to obtain coins or diamonds. Sorry Elephant people, it was nice for a week or so but now it's a drag, while I can't stop playing Found which I think is way way better than this one (I also very much like Awakening Kingdoms and I like ART too).
The one nice thing about this game for me is the friendships and gifts but hey, seems like people here really need to be able to delete friends, since friends are such a burden really so go ahead, delete my friendship and keep on waiting an hour to play 2 minutes and losing a marathon to a turtle. Good luck with that.

(I really don't understand the need to delete friends - last thing I could care about in making improvements to this game).

I think this game needs a store, to at least be able to purchase pet food. (not to mention pet eggs that are only attainable by gambling).
I think items in more expensive hos to open should sell for more than 15 coins.
I think playing hos should give you more than 20 coins per play.
I think there should be more achievements to win.
I think the airship is nice. Would be nicer to make it effective 'cause it's not really possible to send anything oh and the rewards for sending is like... ehhh
Sorry, this game is like a nice game I bought, ended pretty fast and I don't see myself opening it every hour to play the same ho's again and again just so I'll have something to give as a gift to my friends who seem to really have the need for an option to delete me, or any other of their friends for that matter.
I suggest you make it a little more like Found. Oh and why so dark and creepy? Yeah, that bothers me a bit too.

To the developers:

I have a suggestion regarding morphing objects.I think that the morphing flowers are a great way to get a quick 10 coins but what about random morphing objects other than flowers for a bonus 20 coins or so. Like a morphing treasure chest or something of that nature that appears every now and again and you can get 20 bonus coins for finding that random morphing object. Just a thought I had.

Once a few more rooms open up, I will be so lost that a map will be a necessity, and not just a nice thing to have...


I was just coming out here to make the exact same suggestion - great minds!! I especially agree it would be helpful to indicate which HOS is ready.

Level 14 currently.

It would be nice if the Friend Wishlists blocks would include counters for each friend shown that show how many items I've given to that friend and how many items I've received from that friend.

The iron rings are shown as a pair because two pairs are required to satisfy that particular area.

My suggestion is to give players a reason/reward for playing the HOP quickly. I've been playing the HOP as slowly as possible so that it won't level up and thus increase the recharge times. I'm level 11 and all the scenes are still at 10minutes or less. This means I can play constantly without stopping every hour while things recharge. I just can't see the point of clearing a HOP fast because there's no incentive to do so.

Something I find frustrating is the wish lists and 5 gifts a day limit. If you select gifts on your wish list that aren't in demand, you get flooded with them. (Thank you everyone who sent me stuff!!) I want to return the favor but I'm limited to only 5 a day and sometimes I just don't have or can't get the items on their list. I wish there was a way to send items that aren't on the list.

Current level 15.

Difficult to see why the Ice Monster needs 2 Crowns when he can only wear one.

After players have requested it, BoomZap have added one in their "Antique Road Trip" game, and I would like to see one in this game too.


Hear, hear!!! I have a bunch of "requested" friends who never got back to me, so I'd like to clear up my list. The close arrow doesn't stay locked so this list opens up again whenever I go into the options.
Also, I'd like to apologize to anyone who's ears have been burning. I've been mumbling some pretty nasty things about people never responding to my gifts without knowing that there has been a bug and people are locked out of the game. My bad

Sadly, I am one of those people who are locked out of the game. If I owe people gifts, I'm sorry but there's nothing I can do if I can't play! The only suggestion I have for the developers is FIX THIS GAME!!! YOU BROKE IT, SO NOW PLEASE FIX IT!

lol you're funny
I don't think you owe anyone anything. Gifting is about giving, not taking, owing, keeping scores and whatever. I guess like in real life, some people are friendlier than others. It's like in Awakening Kingdoms and Antique road trip (where I tend to message a lot 'cause there's a prize to win for it. Short messages of hi and welcome and such of course, not anything inappropriate or something lol). Some people are friendly and easy going, some are all apologetic or just plain ahhaamm how shall I put this? "not very nice people" lol I don't keep score of gifts and I don't always have the right gift to give to everyone. Many times we all kinda need the same thing. I'm very grateful when ever I get gifts and I give out gifts every day, well did when was still playing that is and hopefully will do again sometime in the hopefully near future. I also have absolutely no need in being able to delete friends. I like having friends, I'm sure there's no such thing as having too many friends, I think keeping scores and deleting friends is insulting and unfriendly in nature. I'm not bothered by having them. It's like having something in your inventory.
I guess it's all about the type of person you are. Being able to delete friends seem like the least of my needs or worries regarding this game. Also in this game I have way more friends than in others, not because more people play it but because of the gifting option, I'm pretty sure. It is a nice option and new to us all. And the game allows you to send only 5 gifts a day and no more than one to the same person. So having 60-70-80 friends while being able to only gift 5 of them per day means we all owe a lot to all of us. Still, gifts is not about owing. Maybe auctions are better. Friendly people don't feel bad about themselves and less friendly people have less hypocrisy to practice.
Happy gaming to those of you who are able to play this game. Maybe we'll meet again. It's really up to the devs.

"Helped" Cards

This is the 3th day in a row that the "Helped" cards kept staying in my Friends Wishlist, so everybody I gifted the last 2 days I cann’t gift anymore. This is very annoying, and I wonder if this is a new "feature" of the devs, after starting to play for the second time, after being kicked out of the game reaching level 18? And if so, please fix this nonsense!
Even gifting doesn’t work anymore, the notice "Please Wait" stays in my screen when I gift someone, and have to quit the game to go on playing.
Well devs, weekend is over, let¹s get back to work!

I have one suggestion. Perhaps there could be a perk for completing the HOS's quickly. We could receive double the item if we completed a hidden object scene under a certain time. (Maybe different times for the different levels of the HO scenes, or maybe the perk could begin once we are at a certain level of the HO scenes.)

I'm not sure how do-able this would be, but it would sure be a nice treat...especially when we have 3 tasks needing items from the same "treasure spot" that needs more than 1 of the same item in order to open it.

I would love to see a more generous roulette wheel when making potions/items. I tend to get x's or gold, but the wheels show all sorts of wanted items while spinning around, mocking me

Would it really hurt to be able to get eggs? I finally bought one with diamonds, but it's the only one I can afford... (and yes, I spent real $ - the same amount I'd pay for a SE).

Currently level 17.

Starting around level 16, as the crafting of items becomes more labor intensive, it would be nice if the craft gifts were of increasing quality and usefulness.

Now have the Playful Phoenix. It would be nice if it didn't sleep so much and if it brought back useful items.
