I agree with your disappointment at the resurgence of so many HO scenes in the Casual Adventure genre, Starcom. Maybe there will be a divergence in the future, and there will arise one line of casual games that has gone back exclusively to HO and another that will forge on into Adventure Lite territory without that make-work scene interrupting the adventure. That would be a solution more appealing than the current approach of trying to be all things to all players. We can always hope. happydance

Thanks for your valuable input Reenie and I could not agree more with your last statement

I enjoy hidden object scenes, though not those that are one-at-a time and you can't even see the listed object because it is in a box or under something or you have to smash through a stone wall first and you can't do anything at all until you find that special one listed object that gets things started. I like all the objects to be visible, not depending on a series of other objects to be uncovered first -- at least enough of the object visible that you aren't clicking on every smudge trying to find something.

However my favorite Ravenhearst game was the 2nd one, not the 1st one. Though the 1st one had the best door puzzles -- better than any later game -- the rest of it was boring jigsaws. Not all jigsaws are boring, but the ones in the 1st Ravenhearst game were.

And I liked the 2nd Madame Fate game, Fate's Carnival, because of the variety of puzzles.

Beginning April 30,2018, creating new posts and private messaging will be disabled on the Big Fish Games forums. All existing content will remain and be viewable, ensuring that there is continued access to the wealth of knowledge created and shared by you and our moderation team.

There’s no change in our commitment to bringing the best content to our customers. You’ll continue to receive notification of update to games in the Big Fish Games App (Game Manager) as they’re made available.

This was an extremely difficult decision to make, and on behalf of the moderation team, we thank you all for your dedication to our community.

So though they're keeping archived forums for the older games, they will be closed and there will be no further discussion in those forums at Big Fish. Any games released by Big Fish after April 30, 2018 won't have a discussion forum at Big Fish at all.

Unless there's a sale going on specific to Collector's Editions, the price would be $13.99.

I wait until there's a good sale where Collector's Editions are priced anywhere from $6.99 to $8.99 and then purchase one of them.

thanks I cancelled my club membership a while back and this game is showing $16.00 so not worth renewing just to buy this game

I would wait for a sale; you could then pick it up pretty cheaply if you are interested. Most of the sales now are for non-club members as well.

Good advice. I gave up my Club membership more than 10 years ago, I think. I didn't like the idea of them charging me every month, whether or not I bought and played any of their games (I played a lot less back then). But as it is now, I am free to buy games any time, including the sales, and I enjoy BF that way, without feeling like I have to buy games to make a paid membership "Worthwhile."

Do the door puzzles get more complicated and amusing as the game progresses? I've gotten to the room with the snake oil salesman and thus far it seems to me that the super puzzles are neither challenging nor visually entrancing. If they improve in terms of challenge and cleverness, I may buy Rewind just for those.

The HOs I saw are all ho-hum graphics of ho-hum objects, the kind of screens I despise.

I liked the characterization of Charlotte a lot and even her brother sort of, then I talked to the swindler and lost interest when presented with another dull HO. Still if the super puzzles get good, I could be tempted.
