Question & Answers
To all of Dwen's friends (Pls read)
I’m jaded, sad and frustrated right now. This is what happened. I accidentally dropped my tab last Sunday. Initially I thought it may still be okay, just like the first two drops before, but it wasn’t the case this time. The screen was completely black and it refused to turn on. So I sent it for repair the following day, and this morning I went to pick it up, the repair staff told me it is beyond repair – another word, gone…kaput. My poor tab!! *Sobs*….*Sobs more*…*Sobs…sniff…*
Then I got me a new tab today (but still missing my poor old tab, *sniff*). And here comes another sad story. After login into the same google account, downloaded the SS game…OMG! I’m back at square 1!! The game doesn’t recognise me anymore… no matter what I do. With all that hardship, patience, not to mention time, invested on the game :-(.….But to be fair, I’m well aware (and so do all of you, I believe) of the fact that there is no way to save or transfer game progress onto another device. The backup is only meant for data such as contact, media files, blah blah….It just that I hate the idea of starting all over from the beginning, plus, the denial in me still hoping for some miracle.
And so, with a very heavy heart, I’ve decided to take a long break from the game. Please feel free to remove me off the list, for now. When I come back, totally anew (someday, when I’m ready), I will find you all again – providing you guys still playing and still want me back, that is. I just wanted you guys to know that you all have been tremendously generous, kind, understanding, and the friendliest people on the cyber world I ever known. Don’t ever change. It has been my pleasure knowing you all. To my newly added friends, to whom I never get the opportunity to give gifts and visit, I’m sorry. I never meant to end it this way. Please forgive me. To ANITA, although we are just a cyber-friend, it seems like I’ve known you forever. I hope we (or anyone else) will still be PMing each other. I would love to have that chat about our daily mundane life, if you don’t mind. I will miss you all and thank you for everything. Be well, good luck and happy gaming! Thank you.

Answer from: 3Dee
Oh dear, I totally get it Dwen. What a shame. I hope our paths cross another day. Although I'm just a new friend, I cany imagine how you feel. I would be so mad. Take care and luck for you.
Answer from: Rita
OMG Dwen. What a nightmare. I can completely understand why you are taking a break from the game. If you come back I would love to be friends again.
Answer from: Buffy
So sorry to hear about your troubles Dwen. If you decide to return to the game PM me and I would be happy to take you back. You have been a wonderful friend to have on my side.
Answer from: sammie
Dwen, so sorry to hear about you losing your game. I crashed at level 394 and had to start over. It was hard to do but actually fun. I got to play all the rooms again and b it was much easier because i already knew where everything was. Plus all my great friends helped me build up my stock. So, whenever you're ready, we'll be here for you.
Answer from: Anita
Dwen, nooooooo! That's awful news! I was in awe of how quickly you had got to where you were! I'm sure you can do it again! Like Sammie said, when you start over all your friends shower you with gifts and you would get back to your previous level much quicker than you did the first time! So when you are ready to start again we will all be here to help!
But you can't get rid of me that easily! I'm still waiting for a reply to my last PM ;-) Of course I would love to keep chatting with you! I feel like we are kindred souls! Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
Answer from: Zazzee
I hate when friends go away. I will with heavy heart delete you but if you decide to come back please, please, please ,pm me and I will happily add you back. Goodbye for now wonderful friend.
Answer from: LorriKNDL
I am going to miss you, my friend. I do understand though. When you're ready, we will get you caught up.
Answer from: chrissie Up
Ditto to all the above Dwen! come back soon x
Answer from: RoyalOne
Dwen, don't say your taking a break. Just say you might play tomorrow. Or the next tomorrow etc. You want to have a game leveled up enough to play any future update. Keep up with the forum please! Let us know if you start a new game so we can besiege you with friend codes.
Answer from: SandyK4
I am sorry to hear that you lost your game. You have been a great friend to me. Let me know when you come back.
Answer from: Ren
Dwen, I am so sorry to hear of your fate. I do hope to see you return someday soon. You have been such a good and generous friend. I will keep you on my friend list, so please look me up upon your return.
Answer from: Sam123
I will keep you on my list. It is very hard for me to delete friends. Maybe you will just start playing a little on your new tablet Then you could pm me a request for gifts. I would be honored to be the gifter this time. And you already know where the objects are located on the pictures. I could send you collection items for energy, dynamite, seekers eyes, compass and time machines. I hate that the game is not transferrable.
Answer from: maitri
Although not your friend I can totally relate! I started over twice, first time from lvl 100, second from lvl 83. Now I am at lvl 231 and my game just reset to lvl 1...again...THIRD TIME!!!
Really lost heart. Yes it was much easier even fun second and even third time but now I just remember all the hours and effort to get so much farther than becore, all green and max awards. I am still debating but unless I get a new device I probably wont do it :-(
Good luck to you...remember second time you know all the tricks! ;)
Answer from: Sue
Hi Dwen :-) So sorry to hear that you lost your game progress :-( I cashed at L133 and now I'm up to L153 in 3 months! We will all be here ready and waiting with goodies galore should you decide to return one day :-) You were a fantastic friend and hope to see you back soon xx

Answer from: vj
Dwen.. you will be missed. You're generosity was such a help to me when i started over on my new tablet. When you're ready let me know and I will try to be at least half as generous as you have been to me. Keep in touch.
Answer from: Dwen01
To Pianosam, Deeu2, Rita, Buffy, Zazzee, LorriKNDL, chrissie Up, SandyK4 & Ren,
Those kind words of concern from all of you make me so much better now. Thank you. There is nothing that will keep me from playing the game again. Besides, I can imagine how good the game may looks on my new 12” tab. So fret not, I will definitely return to the game someday and would love to have all of you back into my list. That is a promise. But as of now, I have some reading and “out there” activities to catch up with. Nevertheless, I will still visit the forum so see you guys around. Thank you.
To sammie, Sue & Navers,
I’m sorry guys that you all have gone through a game crashed before. Although mine wasn’t the case but it all feels the same. I totally agreed that it would be much easier and more fun to play all over the second time around. I know I’m fast, and if I start playing again probably I will be able to tail close behind you guys (oops! this is not a threat hahaha….just kidding yes?). And I’m not worry about tools and collections either because I know you guys will be there for me. You guys and all of the members of this forum are unbelievably generous and very helpful bunch (cheers to that!). But, I’m a little worn out (mentally & physically) right now, plus, with all my crazy work schedules and real life commitments. All I need is time for myself, really. Navers, how very sweet of you! Lots of hugs coming your way (and to the rest of you) as well. Thank you.
I would describe the feeling, just as any other players who have gone through crashes before – a total disaster. Losing the hard earned game progress and all my dear friends just like that really was awful. I know you and the rest of the gang can’t wait to shower me with all the goodies. But that “shower” has to wait yah because right now, all I want to do is spend some time with my swimming and sipping some lovely cocktails with that little umbrella thingy on top by the pool. Yah that’s exactly what I need! HAHAHA. I would never ever even try to (get rid of you). I mean, how could I, you have been nothing but so kind, so generous and so patience (oh! BTW, I know I still owed you that last PM, it’s coming soon ;-)) Since I can’t see your game anymore, I don’t know what level you are playing now but I hope you hit that big 200 already. Whatever level it is, congrats all the same.
Okay. I’m NOT taking a break. I will play tomorrow. Hmmm…...probably not tomorrow, yes I will play the next tomorrow. Geez, probably not again (LOL). Sorry, just kidding. But seriously, you are right, I shouldn’t say that. Please let me rephrase. I would be around probably playing a new game on & off, and will catch up with you guys soon. There, isn’t that much better. Noted, I hope the update is ready by time I start playing again. Thank you for the advice. Yes ma'am, I’ll be checking out the forum every now and then. Thank you.
I knew right from the start that you are a great and caring friend, just like most of the members from this forum. Thank you so much for the generous offers. I must have done something good to deserve such a fantastic friend as you are. You are a “must have” in my upcoming new list. I would probably play a little whenever I’m free. So that I can make a grand entrance when I’m back ;-] You’ll see.
It was really like a blow in the head, wasn’t it? Except that it happened 3x more for you. I really feel for you. For some reason, we kept coming back to the game no matter how it plays us, ironic huh? Well, I think you did the right thing. It’s good idea to take a break for a while, clear those cluttered mind and start over again when you get a new device. For me, smells of the fresh air outdoor is much more inviting than anything else right now. Anyhow, whatever you decide to do, “may the force be with you” (sorry Star Wars ;- ]).
You are just as generous, kind and helpful as well, please remember that. And I would very much love to have you back in my upcoming new list. But first, let me just enjoy my game-free moments yah. I will still be checking out the forum, to see what you guys are up to. Cheers!
Answer from: Anita
Hi Dwen! You really are lovely writing all those individual response to everybody! I would join you in a heartbeat for some cocktails by the pool, that's exactly what I need right now too! Make mine a piña colada!
I'm not at level 200 yet, there's a few goals I want to achieve before I get there. Seems silly, but I wouldn't feel worthy of getting to 200 if I hadn't finished these things first! I will look out for your next PM and make sure you send me your code as soon as you start playing! You realise that if you did start playing again now, you would probably get to to 200 before I do! Is that enough of an incentive to pick up the game again? ;-) I will see you 'tomorrow'!
