I've started the newest Alicia Quatermain TM game.  It has rave reviews but it just seems like every other TM game to me. I thought the Royal Envoy ones were sooo good, nothing else has ever compared for me.  I hate the Emily ones, or anything where you have to drop and drag.  I always like Cake Mania for some reason and I loved the airplane TM.

Thanks, Anki.  I usually just replay Xmas games in December.  I finished the Gizmos one, a solitaire, a mosaic, and a patchwork, don't remember their names, lol.  I bought Mother Goose Untold Tales CE.  I was enjoying it but never got it finished and deleted it the other day.  I did manage to finish Gift of the Magi.
I'm playing Nevertales Forgotten Pages with Funpass, I'm liking it okay, the different worlds are small so not much running around.  Gamehouse has some Dark Tales so I'll probably play one of those next.  I'm playing Cave Quest on the iPad, it's pretty good but I'm going to focus on Funpass for the month and only play CQ when I'm in bed, except I keep going "One more level", lol.

Gamehouse is having a special, $2.99 for a one month pass.  I think it ends the 5th.  I just got it today.  I had 4 punches on a card already, it filled in the other 2, i guess because members get 2 free, so that gave me a coupon for a free game, which includes CEs.  They also gave me a credit for an SE game and 2 free punches on a new card.  I still have a 75% off coupon so now that will be on members pricing instead of retail.  I got a lot of stuff for my $2.99!

Hi, everybody, remember me, lol.https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons2/goodbye.png
  I rejoined BigFish for that Advent calendar thing but it seemed to charge me weird prices.  I need one more punch to finish a card but haven't really seen any bonus punch days.  Today's TIME code says 55% off, but it gives me $2.80 off, which is 40%..
I got a used iPad a while ago, it only had 16gb storage so very frustrating.  I just gave that one to hubby to use for Pokemon Go and I got one with 128Gbs so I've got room!  They're having a $2.99 year end sale for all the ipad/phone games so I spent over $100 and got a ton of them.  They're all CE version so you get morphs, collectibles, bonus chapter, etc.  I also searched out True Fear 2, it wasn't on BFG but was on the App Store, I bought that for $4.99 and rebought TF1 for the ipad.  
Hey, I just went back and looked at the sale and it said you get a bonus punch for buying one of those TMs so I used my PCC instead of the code and  it gave me the punch that filled my card so now I"m happpy, didn't want to spend more money to fill it. I got the Britons one I hadn't already bought.  That Alicia Quartermain one has such great reviews but I didn't like an earlier one I had of her so I'm on the fence with that one.  Maybe I should actually demo, lol.

I read about the BFG forums closing.  I'll never forget how I felt when Chit-Chat closed, at least there's a couple weeks notice this time instead of a couple days.  I hope we get some people over here.
I finished Darkarta CE from Gamehouse, but I haven't done the bonus yet.  It was okay.  I just finished Jewel Match Solitaire La Amour or whatever the lovey-dovey one is.  It's pretty hard at the beginning but once you get all your bonuses bought it's a piece of cake if you use them, almost impossible if you don't, lol.  You can get 3 stars on each hand, plus whatever hearts you uncover.  You need a certain amount of stars to unlock each set of 5 mah-jong lay-outs.  You need hearts to build a pretty scene, and money to buy your power ups.  It was okay, I like solitaire games.  I also finished Braveland, a very simple, basic RPG.  I had already played the second two in the series, Pirate and Wizard.  They're all pretty much the same, not much (if any) strategy needed.  You can finish in a day or two so they're nice, easy, stress-free time wasters.
Hubby got me a used IPad Air 2 for my birthday.  Does anyone have any free or cheap suggestions for games or really anything in general I should know, I've never used iOS before.  I have a few Android tablet games from Amazon, I don't suppose they would convert to iOS, would they?  I've been playing Evil Apples, it's just like Cards Against Humanity.  I tried Fortnight Battle Royale but it's not for me, lol.
I'm about ready to go on the road, Monday after next.  I'm thinking about taking our little TV, we have Hulu and Amazon Prime and I just prepaid 3 months of Directv and got an Apple TV for free.  I also bought the cable to go from the IPad to the tv.  I don't really watch tv so I'm kinda laughing at myself.  I watch a little on my phone or tablet but it's always Project Runway or America's Next Top Model.  We have the $5 HBO add-on though so I will be binge watching Game of Thrones.

I just finished Darkarta and saw Lily's name in the credits.  They rolled so fast I don't know if anyone else was in there.  I've only finished the main game, have the bonus to do still.  It had raves on GH, I got it with my credits.  I"m still getting credits there even though I don't have Funpass anymore.  The story was better than most, but it was very similar to other games.
I've been playing Battleslots since I got it, probably in November.  It's an RPG that works using a slot machine.  You can set the slots to payout more red or blue for attacks and spells, more gold or green for money and experience.  You have limited slots for your attacks/spells and you pick up different helpers with different skills that you have to choose from.  Some of the spells/jackpot symbols you can buy at each new town or for completing a quest, others you get by fighting, but it's totally random what you might get, so each playthrough is a bit different.  I've read about some spells/runes in the forum that I've never gotten, even after playing for over 2 months.  There's enough spells and attacks that you can try lots of different strategies.  I've never been into slot machines so this was a nice change for me.  After you get so far, it gets repetitious but it's also addictive.  Don't know what I"ll be playing next.  Guess I should look for Valentine's Day games.  Maybe some Love Letters.

Hello, everyone.  My old computer kept overheating and shutting down after 15 minutes of gaming and a couple rows of keys went bad so I got a new touchscreen HP laptop and I"m loving the touchscreen.  Gave the old one to hubby, he factory restored it to get all my games off of it and when he went to start it the next morning it wouldn't start back up!  Guess I got the new one just in time. 
It was a crazy spring/summer on the homefront.    Our nutty roommate(Casey) kept filing bogus restraining orders against her boyfriend/baby daddy Steve and then right before I left she filed one against hubby.  Then she never shows up at court.  Hubby had to move out, even though he is on lease and she isn't.  Then she ended up moving out and into the apt. right across from where he was staying!!!  Then Steve came over and got in another fight with Casey, the cops got called and Casey and her mother got evicted.  Hubby ended up back in the house along with the guy (another Steve) who was letting him stay at the apt.  Casey came over to the house and started a scene, telling them all to get out of her house.  She called the cops to get them out but she was on record for them coming to the apt. at a different address so they told her to get out and then the guys filed a no trespassing order against her so she's not allowed to come on the property anymore.  So then she filed another bogus restraining order against Steve saying he punched her in the face.  They went to court over that one yesterday.  She had no police report, no dr. visit, nothing.  Because she's a liar and it never happened, lol.  I guess the judge told her he was dropping the restraining order but giving her custody of little Joey but for some reason she flipped out.  I guess she had already flipped out so after she started screaming and cussing this time the judge reversed his decision and gave custody of Joey to Steve, the father, which is what we all wanted.  Then when everyone was leaving s

Fantasy Mosaics 2 is driving me crazy.  Like I just said, I don't care about doing these quickly so I never bother trying for the 3 stars but this game is so easy I find myself going quite fast.  I'm getting almost all gold times.  The problem is then I forget to look at the mosaic itself, and as I click on the last box I'm always, "Damn, I did it again!" because you only get a second to look at the picture and they're pretty good pictures, I'd like to be able to look as long as I want.  I want to go fast, just to be competitive but I want to go slow, to enjoy making the picture, or in the Patchwork games I want to enjoy the textures and patterns.  I suppose you could have the mindset of playing every board twice, the first time leisurely, making no mistakes, using hints and enjoying the picture and then you can replay with a good idea of the pattern to achieve the gold time and no hints.  But I have so many more games to play.....  I'm also playing Zombie Solitaire 2 so I can go as slow as I want in that one.  I don't know why but I like to play golf style solitaire really fast.  I prefer limited move M3s now but I always find myself making my moves too quickly, there's always a better move if I would have looked for another few seconds, lol.

OMG, I just went and did another puzzle and did it again!!!!!!  It was an elk by a tree, I really, really would have liked to look at it longer.  I have the Super Pack from GH with the first six games so I'm hoping in the next one I can stare as long as I want and then click the picture away.  The first Fantasy Mosaics didn't autofill the squares and the second one does so it seems like the makers might listen to critiques.

Love, love, love the Royal Trouble games.  I couldn't find a collectible in the elevator I think it was.  And then couldn't go back.   I'm playing Fantasy Mosaics 2 and I thought the picture was a crab but it was a haunted house, lol.  I don't bother with time on this type of game because I like taking my time to figure it out.  I'm so glad FM2 automatically filled solved lines, the first one you have to put all the x's in by mouse.   Also working on the new Zombie Solitaire.  It's pretty hard to clear the entire hand, and if you don't clear enough it's a replay.  I love the feel of the cursor in this series.  Sometimes the cursor makes or breaks a game for me.  I still have no desire to play a HOPA.

Hi, everyone.  I haven't really been able to enjoy HOGs in months, now.  They just turn my stomach, it's all a bunch of drudge work.  I managed to finish a few.  Whispered Secrets Everburning Flame.  The Maze Broken Tower, the two Adam Wolfes, Surface Into the Mist, and I'm playing Nevertale Legends right now.  Sounds like a lot when I list them.  I also played a couple RPGs, Braveland Pirate and Wizard.  I tried to play Aveyond but you have to wander around and find the villages, etc., in Braveland it's a very linear map, you can go to a cave or arena to grind, but when you're playing the game you just go to the next dot on the map.  I remember playing some M3s but I only remember Spell something from Gamehouse.  It was alright, it had the limited moves option that I prefer.  Speaking of GH, my Funpass ran out in December but they're still giving me two free game coupons every month.  I use them on M3, solitaire, or Mosaiics.  I've been playing Gizmos Interstellar for ages, I got it from GH, and I see BFG finally has it.  I'm up to 30x35 puzzles.  I also got Zombie Solitaire 2 that they just released, and I had a reward coupon I needed to use so I got a TM game about movie sets.  I'm also playing a nonogram game on my tablet.  Each grid is 10x10, and each square is actually another 10x10 grid, which makes up the total picture.  There's smaller and bigger puzzles also.  The name has pictograph in it, it's easy and addicting.
