Puzzle Craft 2

What am I supposed to do with a board like that? I had to collect lemons for a challenge but I didn’t need lemons to gain access to the next fruit. I needed to collect cattle so I could get horses. It means I should have set the board up to get more fruit but I set it up for animals so I could achieve the cattle and then the horses. The puzzle boards in the last village often pose problems like this. The biggest challenge is working out which villages to use to maximise collecting resources so I can achieve what needs to be achieved. I have to collect silver chests in the first village. They can come up or I can pay 400 coins and maybe not get the items for the collection. it is not that easy to make game coins at moment but I am getting better at it by working other villages. I am using the water game in the village which doesn’t bring up storms, sharks and pirates so I can conserve game coins! The pirate board just sucks up the game coins as does this farm in the last village by always bringing out the rats or cluttering the board so I have to use tools to get out of a bind. The game limits tools so I have to use brains and strategy to overcome the issues and challenges. I was building up gems so I could get the strawberry and I did ,only to find out I can’t really happily use it in the game because I now have to collect jack fruit. The vegan answer to meat. Why? Jack fruit make rats appear. Then they allow me to achieve another fruit which is very attractive to rats. Who, in their right mind would want to be doing that? I’d rather have strawberries…but then I won’t progress in the game. At his stage I just have to meet the challenges and try to get the other animals, vegetables , fruit and mounts. Not easy but that’s the point. I have to think how I am going to do that. Meanwhile ,I have no idea why. My tools were all packed into a galleon to be taken off somewhere. In the other villages they were packed up and I did custom puzzle boards to get to the next village. I have just been told to work on collections and resources. Have no idea where I am going ! I’ll find out. I have the castle ready to upgrade but the silver chests in the first village have given me some great treasures but not all the collection items as yet. Shall I pay 400 game coins a pop for them? I have always worked that first village. It is wonderfully simple and it doesn’t matter what is on the board . It is always dealt with quickly and I get a sense of being able to do something without having to break my head like with the puzzle board featured in the post. Some of the puzzles really push me to think hard. Like trading. I have to think about the trading according to what resources I will lose on the trade or whether I can make game coins out of the trade. I’d love to be able to trade things from the other villages. I have over 400 eggs in my first village and I can only sell a few at a time and they are not used up in producing tools in this village. I want to trade them! Trading is limited to the last village and then only certain items are traded. Sometimes I’d like to be able to choose so I can get rid of the gluts. It’s not always an issue because more often than not I am running short of things to produce enough tools. I use my other villages to help buffer the production blow on tools at this level of the game. I am hoping to get my new castle soon…and be able to eat lots of strawberries!

Puzzle Craft 2

Puzzle Craft 2This game has got me really challenged at the moment. I have 6 villages and am up to level 119. At this stage it all plays out in a very complex way. I can’t easily collect resources. I can’t easily make game coins. I can’t easily do what I think I should be doing and so I do what I can. That’s a first for this game. It is hard and I am really having to think. I am using two villages to try and get experience points and resources . Without the resources you don’t have sufficient tools. The bigger game boards can deplete you of your game coins just so you can finish the board. I can’t easily collect animals so I can get the new one released. It is interesting how much the game has changed and how alert I have to be. Sometimes I just have to resign myself to losing game coins because I need to get rid of the rats or free up the board to play it to the finish. I gather the resources and within two minutes they are gone on tools so you can play another board. In the sea port village I can’t trade successfully necessarily so that is not something I can rely on to build resources. Sometimes the tools from the magic portal help and sometimes not. I have to get a lot of experience points at this stage to get the next award. That’s the thing. There are cups to collects, banners, resources to gather, buildings to build, money to make, trading to do and all the while I have to stay in control of your assets. Phew! It really makes me work on strategy. I use two water games. One in the 5th village  mainly to build resources I can sell . Sometimes I need them to unlock animals, fruit or plants. In the 6th village I have the pirate ship to contend with. My nemesis. I hate it. It forces me to play that board as a victim. I do get coins now when I defeat it but I had to focus on getting that building built so I got the coins. Meanwhile the pirate ship just blows all my game coins away until I can manoeuvre my own boat to defeat. it. I so want that cannot in the fort but have a few buildings and a stockpile of resources to gather. There are days I just ignore that board. Nothing else in the game forces me to be a victim. Everything else gives me a chance to think my way out. The pirate ship? I am on the board, I can do nothing and I just hope I can get in the right position to get rid of the ship. Meanwhile I have used up navigation and sailing moves which I could have used to get resources. It’s amazing how much this game has changed since I first started playing it. I really am at the stage where I have to think out everything and there is no simple answer. Every resolution to the challenges the game poses has to be thought out . It’s why I like the game even when I am not liking it!! I don’t want a game where I do the same thing, I repeat the same tasks , I move in the same pattern and I just am basically in a holding pattern. There is no real growth. Puzzle craft 2 grows and I am growing with it and I have to change to be able to keep playing it. As I said before, it’s a good game to develop flexible thinking and neuroplasticity.

Keep yourself secure

You need a plan when it comes to online security and you need to check it every so often. Checking settings on sites on a regular basis is important , especially with Facebook which can change settings and then you don’t understand why you are seeing too much information or broadcasting to everyone. Facebook settings can be in the main setting part  top right but also on each post and picture. bleeping computer has a good list of tips to run through to ensure you have a checklist you can follow to ensure you are doing as much as you can to keep yourself safe online. You will be doing most of it. There is a list of free security software on listoffreeware which you can check to see if there is anything you might want. The main thing when downloading software is to ensure you are not getting any extra software which you don’t want. Have a plan and be routine in your security checking.

How to use WhatsApp

 

WhatsApp is a hugely popular messaging app with corporate overtones which Facebook bought for 19 billion dollars in 2014.  Yes, it makes you wonder but that is how much it is worth. It is free to use and then had small in app annual fees which appear to have been cancelled for general use because that model wasn’t working. Facebook Messenger does exactly the same thing but some people are used to What’s App or they just prefer to use it. Once you have downloaded it can be allowed to look through your contacts to show you who else is on What’s App. You can look at the advantages and disadvantages on online-sciences.  You can look at an article where they discuss how and why they dropped the fees so you can contextualise that better if you are not familiar with What’s App.
