    And as a bonus a little more information on the Orient-Express:
    The Orient Express is the name of a long-distance passenger train service originally operated by the Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits. It ran from 1883 to 2009 and is not to be confused with the Venice-Simplon Orient Express train service, which continues to run.The route and rolling stock of the Orient Express changed many times. Several routes in the past concurrently used the Orient Express name, or slight variants thereof. Although the original Orient Express was simply a normal international railway service, the name has become synonymous with intrigue and luxury travel. The two city names most prominently associated with the Orient Express are Paris and Istanbul, the original endpoints of the timetabled service.In 1977, the Orient Express stopped serving Istanbul. Its immediate successor, a through overnight service from Paris to Vienna, ran for the last time from Paris on Friday, June 8, 2007. After this, the route, still called the "Orient Express", was shortened to start from Strasbourg instead, occasioned by the inauguration of the LGV Est which affords much shorter travel times from Paris to Strasbourg. The new curtailed service left Strasbourg at 22.20 daily, shortly after the arrival of a TGV from Paris, and was attached at Karlsruhe to the overnight sleeper service from Amsterdam to Vienna.On 14 December 2009, the Orient Express ceased to operate and the route disappeared from European railway timetables, reportedly a "victim of high-speed trains and cut-rate airlines". The Venice-Simplon Orient Express train, a private venture by Orient-Express Hotels using original carriages from the 1920s and 30s, continues to run from London to Venice and to other destinations in Europe, including the original route from Paris to Istanbul.


    Note that the 8 Father's Day maps from last year have been reopened.

      No Treasures?

      174 tiles dug and only ONE treasure found! How can the treasure find rate be so low? Surely this is a bug? http://forum.ooblada.com/images/smilies/confused.png

          Quick question, I notice you can dig the steward uniform set on 3 maps, but the Station items only on one - is that correct or a mistake - just checking

                please follow the instructions here:http://forum.ooblada.com/showthread.php?t=767781&page=2
                also the devs still searching for this problem..it only appears in some accounts. it maybe a fbook server problem..like the one we have with the forum the few last days..
                And for anyone who have problems please use the I have a problem sections, cause it's unlikely to get an answer here..BarbE doesn't come often here..

                Eίμαι η ΑΠΟΛΥΤΗ θεά του Greek forum (LOL)!
                If you want the right answer just ask the right question..

                  Eva - they should appear in your message center if you are not getting them - let me know

                    About the 10x20HP
                    First question: if I recollect them every day, but I don't use them (10 per day), will I be able to use more than 10 at the same time?
                    Second: do the 20HP work as fruit? Can I "eat" them from the MC to go over the HPcap I have, as before?
                    Thank you!

                    Fruits will always be appreciated

                      Was already wondering about this too - but yesterday I didn't want to try to keep the 200 hp in my MC for today^^

                        I don't like this, it requires double the clicks than it used to.

                          I do get them in my Message center but I have questions. Do we need to eat them directly? If not how long will they stay in Message center? Can we eat more than 10 at a time, for example if I saved my ten from yesterday and my ten for today can I eat them all? Meaning the 24 hour limit is for claiming only or for eating as well? We could use some answers pretty please.

                            Hello! Since the new maps release, we have noticed some changes about the free gold we can receive from friends' posts and the 20HPs (new interfaces, not being able to send gold back, etc). I have been searching through the forum and haven't found any official word about these changes. Shouldn't the devs make an official announcement about these changes and explain to the players how things work now? Is it a bug or are these new rules? Players are quite confused and I think we should be provided with a proper announcement! If there is something about it on the forum and I have missed it, I apologize beforehand, and would appreciate it if you could give me the link to it. Thanks
                            Thanks for the help! I'll gift u back if possible!

                            I prefer gifting people who are gifters themselves!

                            save your precious fruit and gold - instead, please add positive points to my reputation!!!

                              Haven't seen a answer to this question yet, and would love to know if I need to start repeatedly redigging the first map for trains.... Thanks for your response
