Ahhh yes, summer camp, only got to do that once, summer of '64! And sorry fish I checked and couldn't find anything helpful, all I remember was that was when I started shipping like crazy.

Love the opening graphics for Summer camp, really nice job. And since the update, I love the fact that we can now see what more we have to do once we have run out of moves, it helps make the decision to go on or not much easier. It was a real pain before as often I (and most likely lots of you guys too), would make that last move without realising it was the last move and then the screen that came up gave no indication of how far away from the total required I was at. Good improvement GD team. Thanks. HOWEVER, the update has also changed the position of the box that come up with shipping, it now obliterates the pinks total in the top right of the page, so I can't quite see how many of those I have in that city, I now have to check that before opening the shipping up, please move it back down where it was before, it was much better.

It bothers me that I can no longer see the resources I'm winning from playing a board until after it is finished.

I agree with Jules about being able to see completion status after running out of moves or time.

Lordkalvan, I hadn't even noticed that the resource earning totals were not on the game play page, but yes, you are right, they are gone. And it would be better if they could be re instated on there. Agree completely.

I agree too. Whilst it's good to see how much more is needed when you haven't succeeded with the given moves, I very much miss being able to see the resources mounting up as I go along. Let's hope this can be reinstated!

EEK - summer camp timed level 27 is a nasty intern level! 10 lives later I still can't get it and I refuse to buy the extra time boosts as they don't really give you enough time for what they cost. I may have to cave in and buy the eternal freeze as I never win those in the daily deals

I hate tough timed levels, and give up on them quickly. I admire your persistence, Trav3lbird! For event cities, my habit has been to just give up on that event if I hit one. Now however, my current normal city is Boston, so I have a stronger incentive to at least build all the monuments in Summer Camp. I haven't quite made it that far, but getting close.

I have decided it's not summer camp - it is definitely BOOT camp. To build the archery range at 30 you need 380k bricks, 320k hats, and 200k pinks. You have to get the mb level at 29 and I barely got through the intern so I don't think I will be bothering much more in this morass

For the camp fire you need 450k bricks, 450k hats, 420k pinks. That's not doable without spending on helping hands. Even though I've accumulated a fair few coins, I won't use them on an event city. Actually this is the first event I've had to abandon unfinished. Back to waiting for Lima!

I must have lucked out on 29. Even master level only took me about three tries.

I have built the monument at level 30. I didn't buy any HH cards, and the only boost I used was one eternal freeze. I did get all of the ten item quests, and played all the side paths.

Jefran, I don't get the point of not spending on hh. I just built the archery range and needed more bricks. So: play or buy... I calculated 39 apprentice levels = 390 coins, 15 arch. = 450 coins and 3 mb = 180, totals 1020 coins gained in this city. I used a lightning and extra time on 27 and a couple of shovels, so net profit appr. 750 coins. Frugal people will play, but for those in a hurry why not buy for 100 or 150 coins, it goes a lot faster and in my case I am still making a handsome profit. I realize I will have to play for the resources for the final monument, but then that might make it worthwhile to finish 100% and enjoy the usual ample rewards.

May be these event cities are not that attractive to those players that like to ship. I don't, unfortunately it is unavoidable to a certain extent after Amsterdam. For me the attraction of the event cities is the limited number of levels, the lack of marts and port and the really generous rewards. This is where I made most of my money!

Trav3lbird, if I were you, I wouldn't give up on doing the architect and MB level of 29, sometimes its surprising how much easier the supposedly harder levels are to get through. I haven't got quite that far yet though in Summer camp as have been too busy doing other things the last couple of days. I have often been surprised at some hard intern levels that then just work easily the second and third time around. Maybe this one is a dreadful one though, but worth giving it a shot anyway.

With a lot of help from replaying level 22, I have built all the monuments in Summer Camp. I have interns done, and a lot of the architects, but I don't want to replay the timed levels so I'm not going for completion. Now I get to grind Boston level 60 since it gives me something to do while waiting for a new city and I need more bricks for the last Boston monument.

I'm with you Lordkalvan, got the interns, built the monuments but not bothering any further, those timed levels are horrendous! And a few of the other levels are very difficult so I will go back to tidying up a few other cities while I wait for Lima. I wonder whe Everest will come back again? There has been no word on what they are doing to fix that problem so people get their mone and resources back

I have a suggestion to put out there, for anyone who may like this idea. I meandered around summer camp and ended up finishing all levels a few days ago, and as I didn't have enough resources to build the final monument, and didn't want to spend heaps of coins on the HHs, I worked over many levels to get them, then, once that was done, I of course went ahead and built the final monument (campfire).

It dawned on me, that I had wasted the timing of building that campfire, from the point of view that as I wasn't in any specific hurry to do it, I should have waited till I had been playing in another city and had got to the point of having lost all my 5 lives, wanting to play more, and THEN, I could have gone to summer camp and built that final monument, BECAUSE, part of the reward package is to REFILL ALL LIVES. HELLO! silly me. I was at 5 lives anyway when I built it, so I could easily have used that as a refill when NEEDED, not at a time when not needed. How does that sound for a good strategy to help out with extra lives????????????? This has occurred to me before, but I keep forgetting to wait till I need the lives, and I have a habit of leaving the current city open to continue to ship to whilst there is no further city to open up and all I am doing is killing time pottering around anyway, there is NO HURRY to close off a city.

So in future, I shall remember to get it ready to build the final monument, but only do it WHEN I AM IN NEED OF MORE LIVES DESPERATELY (like a time when I am doing the daily event and have used them all up and want to go on) and still before the next city opens up.

Hope that all makes sense???????????? Sounds like a plan that could actually be of use to some of you out there. Let me know if any of you think this idea is good or not.

Jules, That is a good strategy. I realized the same thing recently and have found that it makes me play more aggressively and there have been times when it takes a long time to burn all my lives. Thanks for sharing.

The 'lives recharge' hadn't occurred to me either.
