....and, one more...I just turned 62 in December (Yikes--Medicare right around the corner) and I've been playing MC since the Spring event 2015 but only found the forum recently. I've been a BFG member since 2011 and probably own close to 300 games, that I don't seem to play ever since I found MC. Too much fun and the stories in the forum keep me in stitches! I only wish I had half the talent some of these writers have! (Alas, creative writing is not my forte)

I agree, let's keep this going

Hi to all the seniors,

Very interesting to see how many of us seniors are playing MC and have fun with this game.

I´m too a senior, was 63 last year on december 27., and my friend kurt from Austria alredy will be 85 in july!

I play the game on pc near since it started - so i had so many time to spend with waiting, but now, with this challenges, we have good option for the game during the time, we wait for a new update.
And I found, christmas challenge and CE in this year not was so hard than before - I not had so much time, because my husband was in clinic - so i spend much time for visit him - but I have done the challenge and CE and have my litte angel avatar - for next christmas time.

Wish all many fun in the castle

Yvi

I started playing just before the 2016 Fall Event. Found the Forum fairly early on, but it took a few more weeks to appreciate the wealth & depth of information, time, and energy that went into producing it. My sincere thanks to those who put together such a vast amount of information!!! I'm so addicted I recently started an Excel workbook to track my progress. Also, many thanks to the developers; this is a beautiful game. Since starting MC, I rarely play other games. I play on an iPad mini.

I do get tired of the HOS's & earning money sometimes, but I'm glad I'm forced to go slowly because I'll be both elated and saddened when I hit Level 74 (or where ever we are when that fateful day arises). I've not experienced a mini event yet; that sounds like fun. Loved the Winter Event; it was beautiful.

Thankfully I'm retired or I'd be in serious trouble playing this at work. As it is, it just keeps me from my sewing machine some days.

Age 68, level 36, playing since Sept. 2016

I'm only 60 but disabled so I have more time to play.

You might think I was retired but alas, no. I went for a walk, saw a castle I hadn't noticed before and went to their door to ask to use their restroom.

"""""They kidnapped me! Held in thrall and forced to work, even when my right-hand throbs, and my vision is blurred. I wouldn't mind so much, the food is good and although it's winter I'm warm, but really, everyone here is a slob! Cleaning one room is fairly easy, but it's not just one room. I've lost track of how many. (When I sleep I dream of clutter and rodents racing across my bed.)

Walking in a circle cleaning every room, is my daily duty. Sometimes new areas just pop-up. It frightens me. Sometimes I just get angry. (Honestly, how many times can you drop an ice cream cone?) I snuck back to one of the rooms about an hour after I had organized it, and it was a complete mess again! What is with these people ? They leave books and tools lying around. Food and toys share counter tops.Even guns are mishandled. (The folks here are really creepy. As soon as I see them they stop whatever they're doing and just stand there staring at me.)

Someone's coming, if you find this note please, please rescue me before th """""

So that is what happens in the lower reaches of the Castle then?
If you ever venture upstairs you will notice the differences immediately.
For a start the rooms and corridor are spotless due to our endless sweeping up of dust and the dust bunnies that seem to cascade from the minds of some of the inmates (sorry I should have said guests).
We are all immaculately dressed in a substantial white jacket that has extra long sleeves.
We welcome visitors and can brew some beverage and find the odd biscuit from a nearby HOS .
At the moment however, we are away from our residences as we are on a quest that you may have read about in another Forum thread.
BUT please feel free to contact us if you get too bored with your area of the Castle.

I have not had a chance to read through all 700+ replies, but I am 75+ and play this game to keep my brain working. I am on level 47. I am pleased to know I am not the only senior who enjoys playing games on my iPad rather than doing crossword puzzles or other brain stimulating activities.

Hello everyone! Time to confess I’ll be 70 in July and I’m quite impressed. I hope I’ll manage to get used to it … because right now I just have this funny feeling that the “thing” has nothing to do with me! I worked as a translator, now retired. I don’t remember exactly when I discovered this game, maybe 1 year and a half ago and I really like it. I reached level 74 several months ago and, like many other players, I wait as “patiently” as I can for the story to go on. In the meantime, I managed to become a millionaire! You know: rounds and rounds and more rounds. Not to forget the good tips and tricks that can be found on this amazing forum. And here I am now, joining the most amazing “club” of all. I’m playing on PC 475255 (level 31 or 32) as Lou, and on Android 526663 (level 74) as lulu and I very gladly welcome senior friends! See you soon in the Castle. Have fun!
Luisada

I've just had a meander over the forum & a funny memory sprung to mind,I thought some of you might enjoy a chuckle.In my heady days of youth in 1970 I used to walk 1/2 a mile to a telephone box (uk) at a pre-arranged time there I would me others all milling about waiting for the phone to ring then working out which one of us it was for.At that time not many had a phone in our houses.We could get an UPDATE from friends & relatives....47 years later my life still awaits for an update! Perhaps while we wait some of you could share happy times it might ease the boredom of HOS's

Will be 82 in August. Love the game. Read the forum every day. Funny story.....
My daughter has saved an old dial telephone. She had it hooked up in the garage.
One day my sons employee asked "What is that." My son told him it was a telephone and proceeded to show him how it works. When he started dialing a number and the youngster saw the dial spin then back then again for the next number. he laughed and said, "you've got to be kidding". Young people have missed so much of what was just ordinary in our day....
