Buy a Clue.


 Posted about 1 month ago More by Jackie F.

love, Love, LOVE the new game Hidden!!! There is, however, a marked difference between Hidden and other Eager Zebra games that is of concern. When we purchase, for example, Moves or Matches for Grandmaster Poker or Zackjack with our TCredits, we own those Moves/Matches, and those unused travel forward with us in the games until we eventually use them. In Hidden, we also use TCredits to purchase Clues, but...the unused Clues vanish at game's end and we start anew with each and every game. Is it possible to own our purchased Clues, and have the unused Clues travel forward with us throughout Hidden until used?

I have noticed that, too, Jackie, and my TCredit wallet is emptying as fast as I could make a correct guess!

I'm already spending *cough, cough* an obscene amount of TCredits to play other Zackjack games, and now the Astro Auctions have me bid, Bid, BIDDING because, well, they're AWESOME, and a girl just needs to catch a break! Honestly, I'm glad it's not just me!

I have found something else. There have been some games that my chance of choosing the right word seems hopeless. At that point, I would like to "end" that game and try another word, but I have to keep using my clues to hopefully make the right choice. I would like to see an "End Game" button at that point. What do you think?

Brain Sprint,) and the new AA are very "foxy" - more like the right hand giveth, and the left hand taketh away the free RTs which we redeem with TCredits in order to play more and bid more, more, more! It's perhaps the price we have to pay for having so much fun while building a business! Sigh !!!! Something's telling me there's a moral to be learned here.:worried:

I feel this is a great suggestion at the early stage of the game's release. This will definitely help the participants and encourage more and more of them to participate. Hope this suggestion is accepted. Regards Tarooq Khader

END GAME will show up



As you can see in the screenshot, it isn't there

Tanja, Thank you so much for looking into that. I am now able to see that as well. As previously mentioned, I could recall seeing an "End Game" button; however, as the games encourage speed, my recollection was a bit fuzzy. Racing through the games for points didn't allow for perfect memory. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Thank you!

One thing to consider here: when you get a REALLY long word...and you are not able to find the right one immediately, sometimes it can "eat" half of your clues and you won't have enough for other words... That's one of the situations where END GAME could be handy...but, only if you have already used 1 TCredit to buy additional 10 clues.

I have also wished for an opportunity to buy additional clues, as sometimes, the 10 additional clues we are able to purchase is far too few!
