In the Seeker's Notes: Mysteries of Darkwood game, the Darkwood Town Map is your playing board. This is the screen that displays when you first open the game and is the tool you use to navigate through the game's many features.

This page goes through the different features of the Darkwood Town Map, and gives a brief description of the icons that appear on it and their functions. These descriptions do not go into detail on these aspects of the game, just show you how to access them on your map and briefly describe what they do. For more detailed information on the the different aspects of the game follow the blue links spread throughout the page or in the related section at the bottom of the page to their individual dedicated pages on the wiki.

The Darkwood Town Map During Play Edit

The Darkwood Town Map is your game board. From here you can access all areas of the game and find information about your current game progress, active quests, and active boosters.
Darkwood Town Map
As you play the game, you will use the Darkwood Town map to open and play Locations and Puzzles as well as access other features in the game, such as Achievements, Collections and Friends. Floating across the map at any one time are icons you can interact with, such as Monsters, Townspeople and your Friends. You can zoom in and zoom out of the Darkwood Town map to get a clearer look at the floating icons using the iPad's pinch to zoom feature (drag two fingers away from each other to zoom in, drag the two fingers towards each other to zoom out again.)

The Darkwood Town Map left Idle Edit

If you leave your game idle on your Darkwood Town Map for 10 seconds, a blue arrow will appear pointing at one of your quests to give you a clue on how to proceed with your game. Pressing that quest to open the quest box and exiting out of it by using the brown 'x' in the top right corner will remove that blue arrow, but 10 seconds later another will appear pointing at another quest. Instead you can just try to ignore them.

Game idle store box

The Store box will automatically appear if your game is left idle on the Darkwood Town map for 45 seconds

If you leave your game idle longer, then a box will automatically appear after a set period of time offering to take you to the Store to buy something to continue with your game.

If your energy meter is not full, this Store box will show you different energy items you can buy in the Store for Rubies. If your energy meter is currently full, then this Store box will instead show you different Talismans you can buy in the Store for Rubies.

You can buy any of the 4 items displayed in the Store box by pressing the 'Buy for x Rubies' button below the picture of that item. You can go to the Store to see the full list of items you can buy, by pressing the green 'Store' button at the bottom of the Store box. You can exit the box and return to your Darkwood Town Map by pressing the brown 'X' in the top right hand corner of the box.

Currently, the Store box will trigger is you leave the Darkwood Town Map idle for just 45 seconds, which can be very annoying, but you can exit it by pressing the brown 'x' at the top right corner of the box. The Store box will also occasionally trigger randomly while visiting your friends. There is currently no way to change the amount of time the game is left idle before the Store box is triggered.

The Darkwood Town Map and your Player Information Edit

The top of the Darkwood Town Map shows your Player information.

Darkwood Town Map player info

Game Name and Avatar Edit

In the far left of the top of the Map, you will see your current avatar (1). At the bottom of your Avatar, your current Game Level will be displayed in a grey box (2).

Profile Box

The profile box can be access by tapping on your Avatar or your Player name on the Darkwood Town map. Here you can change either for free.

Tapping on your Avatar will bring up your 'Profile' box. This box contains the list of game Avatars currently available for you to use. You can scroll through the list of avatars by either swiping or by using the green arrows either side of the box. Your current Avatar will be highlighted by a subtle white border. You can select any other Avatar to use by simply tapping on them.

At the top of the 'Profile' box your current Player name will be displayed. You can tap on the name to bring up a keyboard that will allow you to change your name. Changing your Player name is free.

Next to the Avatar on your Darkwood Town map is two long boxes. The top box shows your current Player name (3). Tapping on this will bring up your 'Profile' box, just as tapping on your Avatar will bring up the box. Here you can change both your Avatar and your Player name free.

Darkwood Town Map player info

Game Level and Current Experience Points Edit

The bottom box (4) shows your current number of Experience points and the number of Experience points you need to get to the next Game Level (your current Game Level, (2), is displayed under your Avatar). Your current total experience points are listed first and then the goal number of experience points needed to reach the next level are listed after the forward slash. Your current total experience points represent every single experience point you have earned since starting the game. As you earn experience points you slowly climb through the Game Levels.

This box itself acts like a meter, which starts out completely grey when your first reach a new level (and are the furthest point away from the goal experience points to the next level) and slowly fills up with a blue background as you get closer to the goal.

In the example above, the player is currently on Game Level 11 (2) and their Experience meter (4) displays "10692/12000", showing that to date they have earned 10,692 experience points while playing the game and that they need to reach 12,000 experience points total to get to Game level 12. The Experience meter is nearly half full showing that they are nearly half way from the previous goal (to reach Level 11 by earning 9,700 experience points total) to the new goal (to reach Level 12 by earning 12,000 experience points total).

Energy Meter Edit

Energy is required to visit locations in the game and to play puzzle games. As you play, you will use up your energy, and may need to wait for it to restore to continue to play.

The Energy meter (5) is located at the top centre of your Darkwood Town Map. This shows how many energy points you currently have followed by your current maximum energy. In the example above, the energy meter displays "15/85" showing that the player currently has 15 energy points out of a total of 85.

Energy restores over time, at a rate of one energy point every 3 minutes. The energy timer (6), shows the countdown until another energy point is added. The energy timer will stop and energy will stop restoring when the maximum energy is reached. In the example above, the player's energy timer will stop restoring 1 energy point every 3 minutes once they have reached 85 energy points (in another 210 minutes if they leave the game idle and do not spend any energy points).

A player's maximum energy starts at 35 energy points when they start a new game at Game Level 1. Every time a player reaches a new Game Level, their maximum energy is increased by 5 and their energy is fully restored to the new maximum amount. In the example above, if the player was to suddenly reach Level 12, then their maximum energy would increase to 90 and their energy would be fully restored.Their energy meter would then display 90/90 and their energy timer would stop counting down and restoring more energy as they have reached their maximum energy.

It is possible to have more energy than your maximum energy in the game, it is just not possible for the energy timer to give you more energy when you are at or above your maximum energy. Extra energy, earned through other means in the game, will still be added to your current energy even if you are at or above your maximum energy. For example, using energy items, such as Truffles (which restore 30 energy points), will add energy to your current energy level even if you are at your maximum. Desktop achievements that periodically reward energy,such as the Surge of Energy trophy, will also add energy to your total energy even if you are at or above your current maximum. Any energy you earn while playing locations will also be added to your total energy even if you are at or above your maximum energy.

Game settings

The game settings allow you to toggle sound on/off,

sby pressing the gear symbol (7) in at the top centre of the Darkwood Town map.

You can toggle the game's music and sound effects on and off by using the symbols in the settings box. The speaker symbol on the left hand side toggles the game sound effects on and off, and the musical note symbol on the right hand side toggles the game music on and off.

Beneath the sound settings is the game's Facebook connection. You can earn a bonus 3 Rubies by connecting your game to a Facebook account. Tapping on the Facebook symbol of the '+3 Rubies' symbol will automatically open your devices browser and bring you to the Facebook log-in page. After you log in, your game will be connected to your Facebook account and you will receive your 3 Rubies when you return to the game.

Beneath the Facebook connection, at the bottom of the Settings box, is the game Support information. Your Support ID is listed at the top left of this box. This is your unique game ID, which the game developers can use to identify your game. This is also your permanent Friend invite code (which you will also find in the 'Invite' tab of the Friends section under 'Invitation Code'.

Under your support ID is the current version of the game you have installed. In the picture above, the game has the 1.0.6 update installed.

Next to the Support ID and Version number is a quick link for contacting the game's Support. Pressing this will open you Mail app and create an email to the MyTona support desk (snsupport at mytona dot com). This email template contains an area for you to describe your problem as well as automatically generating important information about your game that the game developers will need when investigating your problem. This information includes your support ID; the version of iOS you have installed on your iPad; which iPad generation you own, and the version of the game you currently have installed. A warning advises you not to delete this information as it may be helpful to the game developers for determining the exact cause of your problem.

Hint: Your support ID is the same as your Friend Code. If you are having difficulty using your Friend Code to gain new friends in the game, you can use this support link in the settings box to see your support ID using the native iOS font in the automatically generated email the support link creates. This may be easier to read than the game font, and help you tell certain numbers and letters apart. For example the game's font displays the letter 'L' and the number '1' very similarly, but they are easily distinguished in the native iOS font in the automatically generated email.

Diary Edit

The third icon from the left on the bottom of the Darkwood Town map is the Diary Icon (3). As players complete quests in the game and progress through the game's story, new pages will open up in the Diary. These pages mark important events in the story as well as information about the many Darkwood Town inhabitants.

Diary page06

New Diary pages are usually opened after completing certain quest sequences. Since a player can have many quests active at one time, they may be working through many quest sequences at the same time, and depending on the order that they complete these quests, they may complete these sequences in a slightly different order than other players. This means that different players may see the Diary pages in a different order to each other. It is also possible for a player to collect the pages out of order (collecting pages about a certain characters actions before collecting the page introducing that character), depending on the order that they complete certain quest sequences.

You can review the pages of the Diary that you have collected at any time by pressing the Diary Icon on the bottom of the Darkwood Town map. You can scroll through the Diary pages using the arrows on either side of the Diary, and exit the Diary using the brown 'x' in the top right corner.

Achievements Edit

The fourth icon from the left on the bottom of the Darkwood Town map is the Achievements Icon (4). Tapping on the Achievements Icon will open the Achievements Window, which displays all of the achievements available in the game.

As of the 1.0.6 update, there are currently 141 Achievements to acquire. These are made up of 47 unique challenges, each of which have 3 levels of completion. Every Achievement gives a reward when completed, with the harder to complete Achievements giving higher value rewards.

Achievements incomplete

The Achievements Window at the beginning of the game. The challenges that create Trophies are listed first, followed by the challenges that do not.

Of the 47 unique challenges, 10 are related to earning and upgrading the Trophies that appear near the top of the Darkwood Town map. When a player completes the first level of these challenges, a new Trophy will appear in one of the 10 slots on the top of their Darkwood Town map. When the Trophy first appears on the map, it is sparkling indicating that it is fully charged and ready for its rewards to be collected. Tapping on the Trophy will discharge the rewards for collection. At this point the Trophy's timer will start for the first time. Completing the 2nd and 3rd level of the challenges for the 10 trophies will upgrade their appearance on the Darkwood Town map and increase their periodic rewards.

The other 37 unique challenges do not result in a new Trophy appearing on a players map, but do have their own rewards for completion on each level.

When you first open the Achievements Window, the 47 unique challenges will be listed with the 10 challenges that create Trophies at the top and the other 37 trophies listed after them. As you complete the different Achievements, the order of the list will change based on your recent progress towards the Achievements.

Each unique challenge in the list has its own box that gives information about the Achievement and its rewards. The top of this box displays the name of the unique challenge in an orange box. The icon for the unique challenge (the Trophy icon for the Trophy challenges or a tree crest for the non-Trophy challenges) is displayed on the left hand side.

In the middle of the Achievement box are slots for 3 gold stars, which indicates which level of the unique challenge you are currently on. 3 empty slots indicates that you have not completed any level of the challenge yet. 1 gold star and 2 empty slots indicates you are have completed the first level of the challenge and are working towards the second level. 2 gold stars and 1 empty slot indicates you have completed the second level of the challenge and are working towards the third level. 3 gold stars means you have already completed all three levels.

Achievements collect reward

The Achievements window showing 2 recently completed achievements, whose rewards are awaiting collection.

The requirements to complete that level of the challenge is displayed under the challenge's name (e.g. 'Reach level 5 reputation' for level one of the 'Life of the Party' challenge. Beneath this a progress bar is displayed showing how close you are to completing that level of the challenge. In the centre of this progress bar is an indication of how close you are towards the challenge requirements e.g. 4/5 means you have 4 of the requirement 5 items. As you progress towards the challenge requirements, the bar will fill with a green background. If you have completed all 3 levels of a challenge the counter will still continue to count.

The rewards for completing the current level of challenge are displayed on the right hand side of the Achievement box. If you have completed all 3 levels of a challenge, then this box will be empty.

When you have completed an Achievement, you will not automatically receive the reward. The next time you return to the Darkwood Town map, a red exclamation mark will appear in the Achievements Icon on the map (3), indicating you have rewards awaiting collection. When you open the Achievements Window, the completed Achievements will be listed at the top of the Window. In place of the progress bar will be a green 'Collect reward' button. Pressing this will complete the Achievement, and when you exit the Achievements Window, the rewards will be added to your inventory. If the challenge has more levels left to complete, then the new requirements for the next level will appear as a new progress bar in place of the 'Collect reward' button. If the challenge does not have any more levels left to complete, then the phrase 'Congratulations! You've completed every stage of the achievement' message will in place of the requirements and the progress bar from level 3 of the challenge will return and continue to count.

Collections and Artifacts Edit

The fifth icon from the left on the bottom of the Darkwood Town map is the Collections Icon (5). As you play Locations and Puzzles in the game, you will collect different Collection items as rewards for winning games, these are used to combine collections in order to collect rewards. Combining collections is the act of using 1 of each of the 5 collection items for a particular collection in order to make a new item (displayed on the right of the collection). Fixers are combining elements required,in addition to the 5 collection items, in order to combine the collection. 'Combining' the collection is sometimes referred to as 'Trading' the collection in the game, but is not related to Trading items with Townspeople.

For each collection you will need to find 5 different items and a number of fixers that are required to combine the collection. You can combine any collection as many times as you want, and each time you combine the collection you will receive the reward.

Collections combine

A collection that is ready to combine/trade.

Tapping on the Collections Icon will open the Collections Window. The Collections Window contains two main tabs. The Collections tab contains all of the collections in the game, listed in the order that they were added to the game. This is the default open tab when you open the Collections Window.

The second tab in the Collections Window is the Artifacts tab. This tab contains all of the artifacts in the game. Artifacts are super-charged talismans that have stronger powers and last longer than regular talismans. They are created in a similar manner to Collections, except that instead of combining 5 collection items won by playing the game into a collection, Artifacts are created by combining 5 collections that have been previously created. Combining Artifacts also requires using Fixers as combining elements.

Each Collection/Artifact has an entry in the list that gives you all the information you need about the Collection/Artifact. The five items needed to combine the collection (or five collections needed to combine the Artifact) are listed first. Each item is represented by an image, with the items name displayed above it. If you already have that item in your inventory then the item is shown in full colour and the number you currently have is displayed beneath the item. If you do not have any of the item in your inventory, then item's image is faded and no number appears beneath it. In the bottom right hand corner of each item picture is a checklist icon with a green plus sign, which is used to add the item to your wish list. Tapping on any item's image will bring up an information box about the item which shows how many of the item you currently have in your inventory and where the item can be won.

(Note: Collection items and combined collections do not actually show up in the Inventory Window, you can only see them in the Collection Window or, in the case of Collection items, in the Gifting section of the Friends Section).

Beside the list of 5 Collection items, each collection has a box on the right hand side which contains 4 slots for Fixers. Each Fixer required for that collection is represented by a picture in this box. Under the Fixer will be a banner displaying how many of that Fixer you currently have in your inventory and how many of that Fixer are needed to combine that collection one time. If you have enough of that Fixer to combine that collection one time (or more) then the banner will be green in colour. If you do not have enough of that Fixer to combine that collection then the banner will be brown in colour. For example, if a collection requires 2 Threads and you currently have 4 in your inventory you will see 4/2 in a green banner under the Fixer, but if you only have 1 Thread in your inventory, then you will see 1/2 in a brown banner under the Fixer.

The 'Combine' button is located under the Fixers box. If you have met al the requirements to combine the Collection/Artifact (have at least 1 of each collection item/Collection and have enough of each Fixer) then the combine button will be Green and pressing it will combine the Collection/Artifact. If you are missing any of the requirements (either collection items/Collections or Fixers), then the combine button will be grey and pressing the combine button will bring up a message saying you cannot combine the collection.

Next to the Fixers box is an image and name of the item that is created by combining the Collection/Artifact. If you have already combined that item, the image will be in full colour and there will be medal displayed beneath the item. If you have not yet combined that item (or have previously combined it but then used the item), there will be no medal and the item will be greyed out. In the case of Artifacts this is the Artifact itself, that will appear in the Talisman tab of the Inventory Window. Beneath the image of the item created by combining the collection the total number of that item you have combined will be displayed (unless you later use that item).

Note: If you combine a collection and then go on to use that collection to combine an Artifact, the total number of completed collections displayed in the collections tab will be reduced by one (as you have used one of the items). If you only had one of that Collection combined, then the medal indicating that collection has been combined will disappear. If you use an Artifact after combining it, then the total number of that Artifact will be reduced by on in the Artifact tab. If you only had one of that Artifact then the medal indicating that Artifact has been combined will disappear.
Fixers add wishlist

Tapping on the Fixers box next to a Collection/Artifact will bring up a window with more details on the Fixers needed to combine that Collection/Artifact. Here you can buy the Fixer (for Rubies) or add it to your Wish list.

Above the list of Fixers for each Collection/Artifact, the rewards for combining that Collection/Artifact are displayed. Above the list of 5 Collection items/Collections, the name of that Collection/Artifact is displayed.

At the top of the Collections Window, your Wish list is displayed (both when you are in the Collections tab and in the Artifacts tab). These are the items that you are currently requesting from your friends as gifts. If your game is connected to a Facebook account, then you can press the Share button next to your Wish list to share its contents.

You can add collection items and fixers to your wishlist within the Collections Window. To add a Collection item to your wish list, press the green plus sign that is displayed in the bottom right hand corner of the Collection item picture. To later remove the Collection item from your wishlist you can press the red 'X' next to the item in the wish list itself or next to the item's picture in that collection. When you press the red 'X', a confirmation message will appear to stop items being removed accidentally while scrolling through the collections list.

To add a Fixer to a wish list, you must find a Collection/Artifact that requires that Fixer in the Collections/Artifacts list. Tapping on the box that displays the Fixers need to combine that collection will bring up a bigger window showing a detailed list of the Fixers needed to combine that Collection/Artifact. For each Fixer, the name and image of the Fixer is displayed, along with the number you have in your inventory and the price (in Rubies) for buying that Fixer. Tapping on the price will buy the Fixer. Tapping on the Fixer's image will bring up an information box for that particular Fixer which will tell you how you can get the item while playing the game. There will be green plus signs next to each Fixer in the detailed view of the Fixers for that Collection/Artifact. You can use this green plus sign to add that Fixer to your Wish list.

Guilds Edit

The sixth icon from the left on the bottom of the Darkwood Town map is the Guilds Icon (6). This feature does not currently exist in the game, but will eventually be introduced by a future update, at which point players will be able to join Guilds.

Darkwood Town Map navigation annotated

Friends Edit

Tapping on the Friends icon (7) will bring up three options in the form of three sub-bubbles. Tapping the Friends Icon a second time will hide the three sub-bubbles again.

Top 100 lists (A) Edit

The first sub-bubble (A) brings up the Top100 list. The Top100 list ranks players in 6 different categories:

  • Top Experience (Star symbol) - the 100 players who have earned the most experience points. Each player's current experience points and game level are displayed.
  • Top Collections (Box symbol) - the 100 players who have combined the most collections. Collections combined more than once and Artifacts are included in the count. Each player's total combined collections and current game level are displayed.
  • Top Seekers (Magnifying glass symbol) - the 100 players who have completed the most quests. Each player's total completed quests and current game level are displayed.
  • Top Reputation (Bird/Dove symbol) - the 100 players who have collected the most Reputation points. Each player's total reputation points (note: this is reputation points not reputation level) and current game level are displayed.
  • Top Puzzles (Gear symbol) - the 100 players who have won the most puzzle games. This number is total puzzles won not largest winning streak. Each player's total puzzle wins and current game level is displayed.
  • Top Achievements (Trophy symbol) - the 100 payers who have completed the most Achievements. The total number of achievements, including non-Trophy achievements are included. Each player's Trophies are displayed.
Top 100 puzzles

Top 100 puzzles category (player names removed)

For each entry in every category of the Top 100, the players name is listed on top of their entry, their rank is listed on the far left of the entry and their avatar is shown beside their rank. Tapping on any players rank will bring up an information box for that player, which gives more details of their game stats.

At the top of this information box, the players name is listed. Beneath this, the players Avatar is shown, and in the bottom left hand side of their avatar a symbol will display indicating what that player's Talent is. Tapping the Talent icon will display a description of what that Talent does. If the player has connected their game to Facebook, then the name attached to that Facebook account will be displayed beneath their avatar. Beneath this a number of key game stats are displayed, including game level; reputation level; number of friends; total collections combined; current and maximum energy; total quests completed and total puzzles won.

Top 100 own stats

Using the Top 100 to see your own stats. The blue star in the bottom left corner indicates the Player's talent is 'Keeper', which increases experience points earned by 10% when Hired or when helping friends.

Pressing 'Find Me' at the bottom of any Top 100 category will bring you to your entry on the Top 100 list for that category. If you have not broken into the top 100 players for that category you will be listed as number 101 and your stats for that category will be displayed. Note: you will always be listed as number 101, even if you are the 100th or millionth ranked player for that category. Looking at the stats for the 100th player for that category and comparing them to your own stats for that category will give you a better indication of how much you need to do to enter the Top 100.

Hint: Tapping on your own avatar in the Top 100 after pressing 'Find Me' will display your own information box, as other players see it. Your Talent icon will be displayed in the bottom left hand corner of your Avatar, and tapping on this will tell you what your Talent is and what benefit you give your friends when you visit them or they hire you.

Tapping the open box next to 'Only Friends' at the bottom of the Top 100 for any category will rank you and your friends for each category. Neither you nor your friends have to be in the Top 100 players for this feature to work, it is just an internal ranking of your friends list.

Friends List (B) Edit

The second sub-bubble (B) brings up the Friends List Window. There are three tabs in the Friends List Window:

  • Friends - lists your current friends
  • Invite - displays your friend code; allows you to enter the friend code of another player; allows you to add a friend through Facebook; and gives the option to invite 6 random players to be friends every 8 hours.
  • Waiting - displays players you have invited to become friends with but who have not accepted your invite yet and players who have invited you to become friends but are waiting for you to accept their invitation.

The 'Friends' tab is the default open tab when you open the Friends List Window. Here your current Friends are listed.

Friends List favourites

Friends list (names removed). Favourite friends are listed first, in order of level. Friends who have connected their game to Facebook have a blue box in their entry displaying the name attached to that Facebook account (names removed).

Each Friend's entry initially contains some basic information about the Friend but can be used to view more detailed information. The Friend's name is listed at the top of their entry. Beneath this, in the centre of the box, the Friend's Game Level and Reputation Level is stated. If the Friend has connected their game to a Facebook account, then the name of that Facebook account will be displayed above their Game level in a blue box.

The Friend's Avatar is displayed in the centre of the box, next to the Game and Reputation levels. Each Avatar shows the symbol for the friends Talent in the bottom left corner and a favourite star slot in the top right corner. If the Friend is marked as a favourite friend, the favourite star will be gold with a red background. If not, the star and background will both be grey.

Friends info box

A Friend's information box (name removed). The friend has the Joker Talent, represented by a green lightning bolt on the bottom left of their Avatar. The friend is currently marked as a Favourite to bring them to the front of the Friends list, so the Favourite star in the top right of their Avatar is coloured.

Tapping anywhere on the Avatar will bring up a detailed information box about that friend. This information box contains extra information about the player's game stats including how many friends they have; how many collections they have combined; how much energy they currently have and how much their maximum energy is; how many quests they have completed and how many puzzles total they have won.

The Friend's Avatar in the information box also shows their Talent symbol and favourite star, but here you can interact with them. Tapping on the Talent symbol will bring up a description of what that Talent does. Tapping on the favourite star will activate it or deactivate it if it is already active. This will add that Friend to your favourite list, which means that they will be listed at the start of your Friends list both in the Friends list window and in the list of Friends that appears at the bottom of the screen when you are visiting a friend. If multiple friends are listed as favourites, then they will appear at the beginning of your Friends list in the order of their game level, from highest to lowest.

The main entry for the Friend in the Friends List contains two buttons - 'Hire' and 'Visit'. Pressing Hire will hire that Friend for the next play of a Location or a Puzzle game. This will give you the benefit of their Talent for one play. Their entry will be highlighted for the duration of the time they are hired. You can only Hire each friend once per day, after which the 'Hire' button will become an 'Energize' button. Pressing this will give you the option of paying with Rubies to enable another Hire of that friend (see Using Darkwood Town Map to Hire Friends section).

Hint: If you Hire a friend and then fail the next play of a Location or Puzzle, the Hire will not be used. You can get still the benefit of the Hire during your next attempt.

Pressing Visit will bring you to your friends Darkwood Town map. Here you will see their unlocked Locations and Puzzles as well as their Trophy levels. You may receive a daily bonus of extra experience points and coins for visiting some friends. The number of Friends you can receive a Daily Bonus for is equal to your current Reputation level. For each friend you visit, you will be able to help them a certain number of times by charging their Locations and Puzzles. By charging your Friend's Locations and Puzzles you will give them the benefit of your Talent for the next play of that Location or Puzzle (unless your charge is over-written by another of their friends visiting later). You cannot charge Trophies or Crafting Locations (Fortune Teller; Blacksmith; Inventor). For each Location of Puzzle you charge, you will receive a reputation point and some experience points, and coins. You may also receive a random Collection item. The number of charges you are allowed per friend is dependent on your current reputation level.

As you visit your Friend's map, the Townspeople and Monsters they have unlocked in their game will also be floating about their maps. You can interact with these Townspeople (to Trade for items) and Monsters (to banish for items) even if you have not unlocked them in your game yet. You will receive the reward if you Trade with a Friend's Towns-person or Banish a Friend's Monster. Each Trade or Banish will count as one of your charges for that friend for that day.

Friends Invite tab

The Invite tab shows your Friend Code, and allows you to Invite other players to be friends through their codes; through Facebook; or through a list of 6 randomly generated players that refreshes every 8 hours.

The Second Tab in the Friends List is the Invite Tab. The top left box in the Invite tab, called 'Invitation Code' gives your Friend Code. You can give this to other people so that they can invite you to be friends in the game. This code is permanent and will not change. This code is also your unique user ID number, and is used to identify your game to the game servers and the game developers. You should quote this code when ever you are contacting the game's Support.

You can also invite other players from the Invite Tab. There are three ways to do this. You can add a Friend code supplied to you by another player by pressing 'Enter' in the top middle box 'Invitation from a friend'. A keyboard will come up allowing you to enter their code. If the code is correct, the player will be added to your Waiting tab until they accept or reject your invitation to become a friend. You can also post your code to Facebook by pressing 'Invite' in either the 'Invitation Code' box or the 'Facebook' box. This will allow you to request your Facebook friends to invite you in their games. The bottom three boxes contain random players generated for you to invite as friends. Then they will appear in your Waiting Tab and you will have the choice of accepting or rejecting their friend invitation. You are allowed to invite 6 random friends every 8 hours. You can view the random players detailed game information by tapping on their Avatars. You can also visit their Darkwood Town maps by pressing the 'Visit' button, but you will not be able to charge their boards while you visit them as you are not yet Friends with them. You can invite the random player to become game Friends by pressing the 'Add' button. They will then go to your Waiting Tab until they either accept or reject your invitation.

Note: all players are included in the pool that the Random list is generated from. This includes people who have stopped playing the game. If you do not get a response from a Random player you have invited, it is possible that they have simply stopped playing the game.

The Final tab in the Friends List Window is the Waiting Tab. The waiting tab is the Friends waiting room. This is where all players you invite to become friends go while you wait for them to either accept or reject your Friend invitation. You cannot interact with people you have invited while they are in your Waiting Tab. If they accept your invitation they will automatically be added to your Friends List the next time you connect to the game's servers. If they reject your invitation they will simply disappear from the Waiting Tab, you will not be notified. If someone else invites you to become game friends, they will also appear in your Friends list. However, in this case you will be the one with options to Accept or Reject. If you Accept the invitation, the Friend will automatically be added to your Friends list. If you Reject the invitation, the player will disappear from your Waiting Tab (and you from theirs). They will not be notified.

Gifting (C) Edit

Gifts accepting gifts

Gifts your friends have sent you will always show the image of the item (such as the two Threads in the picture). Thank you gifts will always show a picture of a wrapped gift box (such as the other four gifts in the picture).

The third sub-bubble (C) brings up the Gifting Window. There are four tabs in the Gifting Window:

  • Mine - displays your gifts waiting to be accepted
  • Friend's wishes - displays your friends Wish list items
  • Send - allows you to send free gifts to your friends that do not come out of your inventory (you are only allowed to send 1 free gift to each friend each day)
  • Collection - allows you to send certain items from your inventory to your friends. These items will be taken from your inventory, and you can give more than one to each friend each day (up to a maximum of 10 items total)

The 'Mine' tab is the default open tab when you open the Gifting Window. This displays the gifts your friends have sent you. There are two types that you can receive from friends - real gifts and thank you gifts. Real gifts are gifts your friends actually send you, either from your Wishlist or other items they have chosen for you from either their free gift choices or from their inventory.

Gifts sending thank you gifts

After you Accept a gift from a Friend you will be able to 'Thank' the friend by sending them a Thank you gift.

These gifts will always show the image of the item your friend has sent you in the 'Mine' tab. There will a picture of your friends Avatar and an arrow pointing to the item indicating that they have sent the item to you. Underneath these there will be an 'Accept' button. When you press the Accept button, the picture of the Item will become a picture of a wrapped gift and the arrow will point at the Friend's Avatar instead. The 'Accept' button will turn into a 'Thank' button. This indicates that you can send a Thank you gift to your Friend, to thank them for the Item they have sent you. Pressing Thank will send the Thank you gift to your Friend.

Thank you gifts will always show a picture of a wrapped gift in your 'Mine' Tab. When you send your Friends gifts and they accept and thank you for the gift you will be sent these Thank You gifts automatically by the game. When you accept a Thank you gift, it will turn into a random item from a pool of Thank You Gift items. These generally contain low level Collection Items or Fixers. You will not be given the option to Thank a friend for sending you a thank you gift.

Gifting Friends wishes tab

The Friends' Wishes Tab. This lists items on your Friends' wishlists. Items with the grey 'Send' button cannot be sent to your friend (you do not have it or are not high enough level to send). The Thread and Clip (first and second item in bottom row) do not have numbers under the image as they are free gifts and will not come out of your inventory. The items with numbers under their pictures will come out of your inventory if sent to the friend, the number tells you how many you currently have in your inventory.

The Second Tab in the Gifts Window is the 'Friend's Wishes' tab. This shows you the items your friends have placed on their Wishlists, that they would most like to receive as Gifts from their Friends. Each Item on each Friends wishlist will get its own entry in the 'Friend's Wishes' tab, which can be quite confusing at first, particularly if all of your Friends have filled up the 5 slots in their Wishlists.

For each Wishlist item you will see a picture of the item.Tapping on the picture will bring up an information box about the item, which includes its purpose in the game. Underneath the picture of the item will be a 'Send' button. If this button is Green then you can send the item to your Friend. If it is Grey, then you cannot send the item to your friend - either it is an item that comes out of your inventory and you do not have any in your inventory or it is a free gift item that does not come out of your inventory but you are not yet at a high enough level to send the item. Either way, you cannot give it as a gift to your friends.

12 items in the game are 'Free Gifts' (see the Send tab to see the full list of free gifts). These gifts do not come out of your inventory when you send them to friends. You are limited to sending just one free gift to each Friend each day, up to a maximum of 50 friends. If your friend requests one of these items on their wishlist then you will see that the item has no number underneath it in the 'Friends' Wishes' tab. Pressing the Green send button will send the item to your friend. It will not take that item out of your inventory. If your friend has more than one Free gift on their Wishlist, they each will have a separate entry in the 'Friends' Wishes' tab but you will only be able to send one of them to that Friend each day.

The rest of the items in the game that can be sent to Friends are not free gifts. Sending them to your friends will reduce the number in your inventory by 1. These items will have a number under them in the 'Friends' Wishes' Tab. This number represents how many of that item you currently have in your inventory.

Gifting Send tab

All items in the Send tab do not come out of your inventory when sent to your friends. Some items in the Send tab need to be unlocked at high game levels.

The 3rd tab in the Gifts Window is the 'Send' Tab. This tab shows the 12 items that you can send to your friends as Free Gifts. These gifts do not come out of your inventory when you send them to your Friends. When you first start a game, you will only be able to send the first item in the 'Send' tab. As you progress through the Game Levels, you will unlock more and more items in the 'Send' tab that you can then send to your Friends for free. You can choose to unlock an item early by paying with Rubies. The price will be equal to the game level needed to unlock that item.

The 12 items in the 'Send' tab consists of 9 Fixers (needed to combine either Collections or Artifacts) and 3 crafting items. Any other Fixers in the game cannot be sent as free gifts but they still can be added to your Wishlist. This means they will come out of your inventory when you send them to your Friends.

Gfiting selecting friends

Selecting which friends to send the Rune to as a Free Gift (not from Inventory) in 'Send' tab. The first two friends are selected, the last two are not.

To send a Free Gift to one of more of your Friends, first select the item by pressing the 'Send' button underneath the item. This will bring you to a second screen which will show you all of your friends that you have not already sent free gifts to that day. You can select one or more friends from this list. For every friend you select, the check mark next to their entry will turn green. Tapping that friend again will de-select that friend and the check mark will turn grey again. Once you have selected which friends to send that free gift to, press Send and they will all be sent the gift at once.

The final tab in the Gifting Window is the 'Collection' tab. This tab shows all the Collection Items in your inventory. You can send any of these items to your friends, but they will come out of your inventory. When you select an item from the 'Collection' tab you will be brought to a selection window just like in the 'Send' tab. Here you can select which Friends to send the item to.

Note: Only 9 of the Fixers (combining elements needed to combine Collections and Artifacts) in the game are included in the Free Gifts in the 'Send' tab. All other Fixers can be added to your wishlist. But they will cannot be sent as Free Gifts. Sending these items to your Friends from their wishlist will reduce the number in your inventory. This also means that it is possible to see items in the 'Friend's Wishes' tab that you cannot find in the 'Send' or 'Collection' tab. This is because these items can be added to your Wish List but they are not included in either criteria for those gift sending mechanisms (free gifts in Send tab or Collection items in Collection tab). So even though all the remaining Fixers are giftable items, the only way you can send them to your Friends is if they put them on their Wish Lists, and the only way your Friends can send them to you is if you put them on your Wish List.

Using the Darkwood Town Map to collect Desktop Trophy Rewards Edit

Achievements trophies

As you complete Achievements, you will win Trophies that will fill 10 slots on the top of your Darkwood Town map. These Trophies give out rewards in 12 hour increments. Each Trophy has its own 12-hour timer, and when this timer expires the Trophy starts to sparkle indicating that it is ready for you to collect your reward. To collect the reward, simply tap on the award. The timer will only restart after you have collected the reward.

If you tap on the reward during the 12 hour timer, an information box for the Trophy will appear telling you what rewards it gives out every 12 hours as well as what Challenge gives/upgrades the Trophy. Upgrading the Trophy will increase its rewards.

Each Trophy is won by completing an unique challenge in the Achievements Window. Each of these challenges have three levels of completion. When you win the first level, the Trophy will be added to your Darkwood Town map. It will initially be sparkling, indicating that you can collect your first reward from the Trophy. Once you accept the reward, the Trophy's 12-hour timer will start counting down for the first time. When you complete subsequent levels of the Trophy's challenge, the Trophy will get an upgraded appearance and the reward the Trophy gives out will increase. The Trophies start out completely Silver in colour at their first level. At the second level they will be a mix of silver and gold, and at the third level they will be mostly gold in colour.

The table below shows each Trophies name; challenge type; and reward type:

Number Trophy Name Challenge Type Reward Type
1 Surge of Energy Use Energy Boosting Items Energy
2 Sharp Eye Find hidden objects while playing Locations Experience
3 Life of the Party Increase Reputation Level Experience and Coins*
4 Anomaly Hunter Dispel Anomalies Coins
5 Regular Customer Order Crafting Items Crafting
6 Defender Banish Monsters Fixer
7 Deal! Trade with Townspeople Coins
8 Collector Combine Collections Collection Item
9 The Ends Justify the Means Use Tools Fixer
10 Investor Spend Coins Experience

*Note: When you tap on the 'Life of the Party' Trophy, it will say that it rewards Energy and Reputation points every 12 hours in the Trophy's description. However, there will be a pictures of Experience points and Coins in the rewards. The Trophy gives the later, Experience points and Coins, every 12 hours.

Using the Darkwood Town Map to Navigate Active Quests Edit

Quests desktop arrow

Your active Quests are listed on the left hand side of the Darkwood Town map. Each Quest is represented by a Quest bubble which has a gold border and a picture representing the quest in the centre. For quests that ask you to find or make a certain item, the image of the item is in the bubble. For quests that ask you to interact with a certain character in the game, the image of the character is in the bubble.

Once a quest appears on the map, it automatically activates. You do not have to tap on the Quest bubble and press accept for the Quest to activate. But tapping on the Quest bubble will bring up an information box about the quest that will give you more details of the Quest.

Each quest is proposed by one of the Story Characters in the game. The quest is usually proposed as a way for the Player, their 'Town Seeker' to help the character with a task. The name of quest appears at the top of box, with a story description of the quest directly below it. Beneath this is a picture of the item/character/action that the Quest requires. Above this picture is the name of the item (not necessarily the same as the name of the Quest). Beneath the image the rewards for completing the Quest are listed, these are usually Experience points and Coins, but some Quest will reward Rubies.

At the bottom of the information box, the directions for completing the Quest are given in the form of a 'Hint'. You must follow these instructions exactly to win the item and complete the Quest. For example, if the Hint asks for a certain Game Mode in a certain Location, then the item will only be available to win when that Location is in the right mode.

Quests information box arrows

The Quest information box tells you how to complete the Quest. Pressing the Accept button will close the box and show you a hint as to where to go to complete the quest. Pressing the brown 'x' in the top right corner will exit the quest without showing the hint.

There is a green 'Accept' button at the bottom of the Quest box, beneath the Quest 'Hint'. Tapping this 'Accept' button will exit the Quest box and either a large blue arrow will appear on the Darkwood Town map pointing to the where you should go to complete the Quest or the relevant Section of the game (e.g. Collections Window).

If you do not want the Blue arrow to help you with the quest, you can use the brown 'X' in the top right hand corner of the Quest box to exit it. This will not trigger the blue arrow hint.

Once you complete the task or find the right item, the quest will automatically complete and a new box will appear from the Character who proposed the Quest congratulating you and giving you the rewards for completing the Quest.

Hint: The majority of Quest in the game are collection sequences. These are sets of 6 Quests - the first 5 Quests are to find each of the 5 items in the Collection and the 6th Quest is to combine the Collection (Combining Collections may be referred to as 'Trading' or ;Exchanging' the collection but it always means the same thing, to combine the Collection in the Collections Window). If you already have at least one of each item in the Collection, you can combine the Collection before the Combine Quest activates. You will still have to do all the other Quests asking you to find the different items from the Collection, but the combine Quest itself will automatically complete when you reach it.

Using the Darkwood Town Map to Navigate Active Boosters Edit

Game board boosters

The right hand side of the Darkwood Town map contains your active boosters and Friend notifications within bubbles.

In-game advertisements for limited time special offers will be listed with their own decorative borders (1). The amount of time left on the special offer is displayed below the bubble. Tapping on the bubble will bring up the advertisement, which is usually for either buying items for money or Rubies, or for getting extra items when you buy Rubies or Coins with real money. The Crystal of Atlantis and the Crystal of Artemis will also have the same decorative border in the list on the right hand side of the Darkwood Town map. If you have a Talisman or Artifact activated, then an icon for that Talisman/Artifact will appear the Darkwood Town map.

If you have gifts waiting for you in the Gift Window, an icon of a wrapped gift (2) will appear on the right hand side of your Darkwood Town Map. The number of Gifts waiting for you will be displayed below the wrapped gift icon. Tapping on this icon will automatically open the Gifts Window on the 'Mine' tab as a shortcut to getting your gifts.

If you have Hired any Friends, an icon showing their Avatar with their Talent Symbol (3) will also be on the right hand side of the Darkwood Town map. Once you have played a single Location or Puzzle, you will have used the Hire and the icon will disappear. Tapping on the icon will bring up a 'Friend's Help' box which will show you the name of the Friend you have hired; what their Talent is; and what that Talent does for the next Location/Puzzle when it is Hired.

If you have any Talismans or Artifacts active, then an icon for that Talisman/Artifact (4) will be on the right hand side of your Darkwood Town map. This icon will show an image of the Talisman/Artifact will appear on the right hand side of your Darkwood Town map. This icon will have an image of the Talisman/Artifact and below that will be the Talisman/Artifact timer. This timer counts down until the Talisman/Artifact expires. Tapping on the icon will bring up an information box for the Talisman/Artifact which also has a live timer and gives a description of what the Talisman/Artifact does while it is activated (e.g. The Owl Figurine pictured increases the experience points earned while exploring Locations by 15% for 30 minutes).

Hint: For most Talismans/Artifacts, you can only use one with the same function at the same time, i.e. if you have the Owl figurine active, you cannot use the Ancient Scroll or the Magic Folio until the Owl Figurine timer expires. However, you can use other Talismans/Artifacts in conjunction with the Fortune Pearl, the 10-day talisman you collect over 25 consecutive days of opening the game. The Fortune Pearl increases your chances of winning items by 12% and increases the coins you earn by 12%. Any other Talisman/Artifact that increases your chances of winning items or increases coins earned can also be used while the Fortune Pearl is active.

Using the Darkwood Town Map to visit Hidden Object Locations Edit

The centre of the Darkwood Town map currently includes 18 different stationary Locations that a player can interact with. Of these, 12 are Hidden Object Locations that can be played:

Game boad HO locations

When you first start a game, only Cafe is open. As you progress through the Game Levels, more Hidden Object Locations will become unlocked. When you reach the correct Game Level to unlock a Hidden Object Location, the Location will not automatically open. First, a Quest will start to find a Key to open the Location. These Quests usually ask you to win games of another Hidden Object Location. To open the new Location, Energy points and Coins are needed in addition to the Key. The number of Energy points and Coins needed increases with each new Hidden Object Location.

Once opened, each Hidden Object Location will display some information on their icon on the Darkwood Town Map:

  • The colour of the plaque displaying the Location's name beneath the Location's picture will indicate what Rank the Location is currently on. When you first open a Location, it will be on Novice rank (light brown plaque), and as you win hidden object games at that location, that rank will increase, and the plaque colour will change.
  • A stamp symbol in the bottom left corner of the Location picture indicates the Game mode the Location is currently in (see teapot stamp in Cafe above, indicating the Location is in Silhouette mode).
  • If the Location has been charged by a visiting Friend, then the Friend's Talent symbol will be displayed on the bottom right of the Location's picture (see the blue star in Cafe above, indicating the Location has been charged by a visiting Keeper).
Explore window

The Explore Window for Cafe. The Location is in Morphs mode at Connoisseur Rank, and has been charged by a Keeper.

To get more information and to play the Hidden Object Location, tap on its icon on the Darkwood Town map to open its Explore Window.

The name of the Location is listed at the top of the Explore window. A picture of the Location is below the name. The current game mode the Location is in is shown in the stamp symbol on the top right of the picture (1). Tapping on this stamp symbol will bring up an information box giving the name and description of the Game mode.

If the Location has been charged by a visiting friend, then a symbol representing that Friend's Talent will appear on the bottom left of the Location's picture (2). Tapping on this icon will bring up an information box that explains what the Talent is and what benefit it brings, as well as giving the name of the Friend who charged the location.

The Location's current Rank and progress within that Rank is shown beneath the picture of the Location (3). As you play the Location and win the Hidden Object games, the progress bar for that Rank will fill up. Once the progress bar reaches 100% then the Location will be promoted to the next Rank. The percentage increase per play depends both on the current Rank but also on which Location is being played. As the Location's Rank is increased, the Costs per play the Location (Energy points and Special Items if needed for that Location) will increase. But the Rewards will and list of available items that could be won for winning a game of the Location will also increase.

The Costs (4) for each play of that Location is listed under the Location's Rank, on the left hand side. It costs Energy points to play every Location in the game, and some Locations also require a certain number of Special Items to play (i.e. Gold Threads are needed for each play of Clothing Store; Lanterns are needed for each play of Garden; and Theater Tickets are needed for each play of Dressing Room).

The set Rewards if you win that play (5) are listed next to the Costs in the Explore Window. For each successful play of a Location, the guaranteed set Rewards are a number of Experience points and Coins. If you have any boosters (charges by Friends; Hired Friends; Talisman or Artifacts activated) the sum of their increases will be listed to the right of the set rewards.

Explore Window clothing store

Explore Window for Clothing Store with Gargoyle anomaly. Clothing Store requires Golden Thread Special Items in addition to energy points for each play. In this case, the player does not have enough Golden Threads to play the Location (8/10), but can still Dispel the Anomaly if they have the right Dispelling item (Rock Crusher for Gargoyle Anomaly).

In addition to the guaranteed Experience points and Coins, if you win the play of the Location you may receive a number of other items. The pool of potential items that could be won by winning a game of that Location is listed in the 'You can Find' list (6) at the bottom of the Explore Window. You can scroll through this list using the arrows either side of it, or by swiping. You are not guaranteed to win any one item from the 'You can Find' list when you win the play of the Location. How many different items you receive and which items they are is down to chance, with some items weighted to drop more frequently than others.

At the bottom of the Explore Window there is a green 'Explore' button. Pressing this will start a play of the Location if you have enough energy (and special items if necessary). If you do not have enough energy, an information box will appear offering to use an energy item from your inventory or if you do not have any energy items in your inventory then you will be give the option to buy more with Rubies or wait until your Energy restores. If you do not have enough Special Items for that play, then you will be offered to buy more for Rubies or Cancel.

If the Location has an Anomaly in it, then the icon for the Anomaly will be in the top left of the Picture of the Location. Tapping on the anomaly icon will bring up an information box for the Anomaly that gives its name and what changes it makes to that play of the location.

The Costs to play the Location will increase when there is an Anomaly present. This increase only effects Energy points needed to play the Location and not Special Items if they happen to be needed for that Location. The Set Rewards (Experience points and Coins) will also increase if there is an Anomaly present.

At the bottom of the Explore Window, there will be two options not one. The Explore option will work as normal. If you win the play of the Location with the Anomaly present, then the next Game Mode in that Location will be Anagram mode (this is the only way to get Anagram mode to appear in a Location). There will also be a second option to the right of the Explore button - 'Dispel'. Each Anomaly has a corresponding Dispelling item, and if you have the right Dispelling item in your inventory you can Dispel the Anomaly from that Location instead of playing it. Dispelling does not cost Energy points or Special items, it just uses one of the Dispelling item in your inventory. When you Dispel an Anomaly you will get the rewards for playing that Location and the Anomaly will disappear. The next mode in the Location will be Text mode (this is the only way to force Text mode to appear, otherwise it just appears in random rotation like all the other Game modes except Anagram, which never appears in normal rotation).

Using the Darkwood Town Map to play Puzzles Edit

The centre of the Darkwood Town map currently includes 18 different stationary Locations that a player can interact with. Of these, 3 are Puzzle games that can be played - Treasure Box; Mosaic; and Ancient Cards:

Game boad puzzles

When you first start a game, Treasure Box is the only open Puzzle. As you progress through the Game Levels, the other 2 Puzzles will become unlocked. When you reach the correct Game Level to unlock a Puzzle, the Puzzle will not automatically open. First, a Quest will start to find a Puzzle Piece(s) to open the Puzzle (a Mosaic piece for Mosaic; 3 Cards for Ancient Cards). These Quests usually ask you to win games of Hidden Object Locations. To open the new Puzzle, Energy points and Coins are needed in addition to the Puzzle Pieces. The number of Energy points and Coins needed increases from Mosaic to Ancient Cards.

Once opened, each Puzzle will display some information on their icon on the Darkwood Town Map:

  • The colour of the plaque displaying the Puzzle's name beneath the Puzzle's picture will indicate what Rank the Puzzle is currently on. When you first open a Puzzle, it will be on Novice rank (light brown plaque), and as you win hidden object games at that Puzzle, that rank will increase, and the plaque colour will change.
  • If the Puzzle has been charged by a visiting Friend, then the Friend's Talent symbol will be displayed on the bottom right of the Puzzle's picture
  • (Treasure Box ONLY) A stamp symbol in the bottom left corner of the Treasure Box picture indicates the Game mode that Treasure box is currently in

To get more information and to play the Puzzle, tap on its icon on the Darkwood Town map to open its Solve Window.

Treasure Box solve window

Treasure Box is the only Puzzle that has Game Modes. The puzzle must either be completed within a certain time frame or within a certain number of moves. Within both categories it has 3 different Objectives - acquire a certain number of specified coloured gems; remove plates from the puzzle board or get Moon/Star shapes to the bottom of the puzzle board.

The name of the Puzzle is listed at the top of the Solve window. A picture of the Puzzle is below the name.

Treasure Box is the only Puzzle that has Game modes. When you open the Solve Window for Treasure Box, the current game mode combination is shown by two stamp symbols on the top left (1a) and the right of the picture (1b). Tapping either stamp symbol will bring up an information box giving the name and description of the Game mode.

Treasure Box has two Win Conditions (1a) - win the game within a certain amount of time or Step (win the game within a certain number of moves). Treasure Box also has three Puzzle modes (1b) - Plates mode (remove all the plates from the Puzzle board); Palette mode (remove a certain number of a specific coloured gem from the board); or Stargazer mode (maneuver Moon/Sun/Saturn symbols to the caskets at the bottom of the board).

If the Puzzle has been charged by a visiting friend, then a symbol representing that Friends Talent will appear on the bottom left of the Puzzle's picture (2). Tapping on this icon will bring up an information box that explains what the Talent is and what benefit it brings, as well as giving the name of the Friend who charged the Puzzle.

The Puzzle's current Rank and progress within that Rank is shown beneath the picture of the Puzzle (3). As you win Puzzle games, the progress bar for that Rank will fill up. Once the progress bar reaches 100% then the Puzzle will be promoted to the next Rank. The percentage increase per play depends on the current Rank. As the Puzzle's Rank is increased, the Costs per play of the Puzzle (Energy points) will increase. But the Rewards will and list of available items that could be won for winning a game of the Puzzle will also increase.

The Costs (4) for each play of that Puzzle is listed under the Puzzle's Rank, on the left hand side. It costs Energy points to play every Puzzle in the game.

The set Rewards if you win that play (5) are listed next to the Costs in the Explore Window. For each successful play of a Puzzle, the guaranteed set Rewards are a number of Experience points and Coins. If you have any boosters (charges by Friends; Hired Friends; Talisman or Artifacts activated) the sum of their increases will be listed to the right of the set rewards.

In addition to the guaranteed Experience points and Coins, if you win the play of the Puzzle you may receive a number of other items. The pool of potential items that could be won by winning a game of that Puzzle is listed in the 'You can Find' list (6) at the bottom of the Solve Window. You can scroll through this list using the arrows either side of it, or by swiping. You are not guaranteed to win any one item from the 'You can Find' list when you win the Puzzle. How many different items you receive and which items they are is down to chance, with some items weighted to drop more frequently than others.

At the bottom of the Solve Window there is a green 'Solve' button. Pressing this will start a play of the Puzzle if you have enough energy. If you do not have enough energy, an information box will appear offering to use an energy item from your inventory or if you do not have any energy items in your inventory then you will be give the option to buy more with Rubies or wait until your Energy restores.

Using the Darkwood Town Map to Craft Items Edit

The centre of the Darkwood Town map currently includes 18 different stationary Locations that a player can interact with. Of these, 3 are places that you can Craft items - Fortune Teller; Forge; and Inventor:

Game boad crafting

When you first start a game of Seeker's Notes: Mysteries of Darkwood, none of the Crafting Stations are open. When you reach level 5, the first Crafting Station, Fortune Teller, unlocks. As you progress through the Game Levels the other Crafting Stations will unlock. Once unlocked, the Crafting Stations will not automatically open, first you have to tap on the Crafting Stations icon and press open in the Window that appears.

You can see the current status of a Crafting Station on the Darkwood Town map. If there is currently no Crafting in progress at that station the icon to the top right of the Crafting Station picture will have an orange border and symbol with a dark green background. If there is an item currently in the process of being crafted at that Station, when the icon to the top right of the Crafting Station picture will have a red border and symbol with a pink background. If an item has been ordered at that Crafting Station and is currently ready to collect, then the icon to the top right of the Crafting Station picture will have a green border and symbol with a light green background.

Fortune Teller

The Fortune Teller Crafting Station

Tapping on a Crafting Station on the Darkwood Town map will open the Crafting Window for that Station.

Each Crafting station has one open Crafting slot when they are first opened. This means you can only Craft one item at a time. A second slot is available, which you can unlock by paying with Rubies.

Each Crafting Station has its own unique list of items that can be Crafted. These are listed from easiest to hardest on the list on the right hand side. You can scroll through this list by swiping.

Each item that can be Crafted has its own entry in the list showing the Items name at top. The items picture is on the left hand side of the entry, and the time needed to Craft that item is listed underneath this picture. Easier items can be Crafted in minutes, but harder items at the end of the list can take many hours to be crafted.

Each item requires 3-4 different reagents to be Crafted. These reagents are lists after the item picture in the item's entry. The easier Crafting items, at the top of the list can usually be made from reagents that can more easily be found in the game. These items can either be found by playing Locations or Puzzles or by Trading with Townspeople or Banishing Monsters. As you get further down the list, the reagents become harder to obtain. These reagents may need to be Crafted themselves. Many of the Crafting items require Coins in addition to reagents to Craft.

Hint: You can tap on any Reagent in the list to bring up an information box about the item which will explain where you can obtain the item.

When you have all the required Reagents (and Coins if necessary), you can 'Order' the item to be Crafted. The item will become available after the specified time. You can pay with Rubies to make the item available immediately, the cost to do this increases with the amount of time being skipped. Unless you have unlocked the second Crafting slot, you will only be able to Craft one item at a time. You can exit the Crafting Station and continue to play the game, or exit the game, and the Crafting timer will continue to count down. While the item is being Crafted, the icon next to the Crafting Station's picture on the Darkwood Town map will be red in colour.

When the item is ready, the icon next to the Crafting Station's Picture on the Darkwood Town map will turn green. In order to collect the item, you must open the Crafting Station Window and press 'Claim' under the Crafting slot. The item will go into your inventory when you exit the Crafting Station Window.

Using the Darkwood Town Map to Trade Items Edit

As you play and work through the game's Quests, you will be introduced to different Darkwood Townspeople. Once you have unlocked a Towns-person, their icon will float around the Darkwood Town map. You can Trade with Townspeople to collect rewards. To Trade with a Towns-person, simply tap on a floating icon for that Towns-person. This will bring up the Trading Window for that Towns-person. You can Trade with a Towns-person as many times as you want, as long as you have the right item to Trade. Every time you Trade with a Towns-person, their icon will re-appear in a different areas of the Darkwood Town map.

Hint: if you a number of floating icons are close together, and you are having a hard time selecting the right one, you can zoom in on the Darkwood Town map using the iPad pinch zoom function (dragging two fingers away from each other on screen).

When you tap on the floating icon the Trading Window for that Towns-person will appear. This Window will show you a picture of the Towns-person and a short description of their Trade.

Beneath this will be a picture of the item you need to make a Trade with that Towns-person. Under this picture, you will see how many of the item you need per trade with that Towns-person and how many of that item you currently have in your Inventory. In the case of the Seamstress in the picture to the right, you need 1 Thimble to make a Trade, and the player currently has 3 Thimbles in their Inventory, so 3/1 is shown in green underneath the image of the Thimble. Tapping on the image of the Trading item will bring up an information box for it which will also show you how many you have in your inventory but will also show you where you can find the item in the game.

Under the image of the Trading item, a 'You can Obtain' box shows what rewards that you will obtain for making the Trade. In the 'You can Obtain' box is images of the rewards.

You can interact with these Townspeople to Trade for items even if you have not unlocked that Towns-person in your game yet. You will receive the reward in your game if you Trade with a Friend's Towns-person. However, each Trade will count as one of your available charges for that friend for that day.

However, each Banish will count as one of your available charges for that friend for that day.

Using the Darkwood Town Map to Hire Friends Edit

As you play, icons for your friends showing their Avatars and Talent icon in a playing card shaped icon, will float around the Darkwood Town map, leaving footprints behind them. As a shortcut to Hiring Friends, you can tap on their floating icon on the map. This will bring up an information box about that friend, which shows their current game level, their current reputation level and their Talent, along with an explanation of what that Talent does.

You can leave the information box and return to the Darkwood Town map by tapping the brown 'X' in the top right hand corner of the friend's information box.

You can Hire the friend by tapping on the green 'Accept help' button at the bottom of the friend's information box.

In your Friend's list, every Friend has a small box showing their Name (top); their Avatar (left) which contains a small icon for their Talent; their Game and Reputation levels (right); and two green buttons at the bottom of the box. The left green button is 'Hire' and the right green button is 'Visit'. Pressing the 'Hire' button for a friend in your friends list will bring up a confirmation box reminding you of that friends Talent and and what benefit that Talent gives, and pressing okay in the confirmation box will Hire the friend. The friends entry will then be highlighted in the friends list for the duration of the time they are hired and a bubble will appear on the right hand side of your Darkwood Town map indicating which friend is Hired.
