    It is finished

    According to my Profile, I first logged into this forum on 10/17/13 and now this morning on 10/17/17 I received no further re-runs of tombs. I have reached the end.

    This seems appropriate.

    It has been a fantastic ride here. From the learning experience of the Day Realm to my well documented need to organize lists.

    Thank you all for your wit and helpfulness and even for the debates.
    Special thank you to Spanish eyes for bestowing on me my nickname of Professor.

    I had considered collecting rubies until I got banned, but, I decided that would make me sad. So I will just move the game to the last page of my iPad with Hidden Agendas and Night at the Museum. Old friends in the back of the closet.

    All I can come up with is the quote from the movie the Agony and the Ecstasy:
    "When will you make it end?" "When I'm finished."

    I am finished.

    Farewell, everyone.

    I wish you good fortune in the game.

    Even more than that, I wish you joy and well being in the real world.

    I’d stopped playing last year, maybe a year and a half ago. I was reminded of this game when I had to replace my ipad, and I opened it up and started playing again, but the game was missing some stuff I'd been used to. Imagine my surprise to log into here to find out whats up, only to discover the game is at an end....

    I still have about a third of the game left to finish; day and night realms complete but only partway through the other two.

    Kind of not understanding why they won't at least continue weekend events... seems they have enough artwork and themes to recycle them to a new batch of players, esp since the game is still available for download in the app store.

    Sad. Really sad. This is one of the very few ipad games that actually held my attention for more than a few weeks.

    I also miss the weekend events. I read the Hall Of Fame thread and it was both refreshing and sad. I actually deleted my game in January out of shear frustration at the inability to fix errors that stopped me from playing for weeks. I still pop into the forum every now and then.

    As the song goes “Those were the days” I really miss all the fun and lively chatter on the forum and the great family of players.

    For me, it has finally ended. Today I reached 400K rubies and I have to say I am disappointed that I wasn’t banned. Oh well, disappointment is probably an apt way to finish a game that I loved so much but came to a very lacklustre end.

    To anyone that is still reading the forum, goodbye and farewell. It has been an interesting and enjoyable part of my life. I made some lovely friends, most of which have moved on to Seekers Notes. The highlight was meeting Wildflourgirl in LA. . My imagination has to conjure up the rest of you.

    I’m realizing how grateful I am the weekend events have ended. At the time, they were so important. Now I ask myself, WHY!

    What would the forum be without Reverend Igotahavit preaching one last time from the Church of My Back Porch! Ha, ha, I do love it so!

    So, let's run down a few thangs:

    1) Jimbo, the world is most probably coming to an end as MY Eagles (yes, it's MY team) finally won the Super Bowl. (Yes, Snarklady, that was me, right there at City Hall front and center of the parade down Braod Street in the midst of the finest people in the world, my brothers and sisters of Philadelphia!) If anyone tells you that I was drunk, rowdy and very loud, IT'S ALL LIES! Ha, ha, ha!

    2) My alma mater did it again! VILLANOVA! Go Nova Nation! National Basketball Champs again! Jay Wright for President!

    3) I still play SP everyday. Collect rubies everyday! Of course I miss the World Events. My kids still wear the t-shirts PG sent when I broke 2 Billion on the Billionaire Bandit Scoring event (only to be later demolished by even greater talent - you know who you are).

    4) Speaking of the Bandits, I salute you all. We did great things and added something extra to the game - you can't say that for other games and other players!

    5) Kiwi, I hope you are still in good health! Raji, great to see that you are still around! Tassie, you're the best!

    6) I did suggest to PG that they remove the 400K ruby "banning" programming, for at least the forum members, if not for every player. That was back a few years ago and I had made several other suggestions via a rant one day. Maybe, they actually listened to me?? Nah, Ben Liu probably still throws darts at my photograph that I sent him which depicts me using sign language telling him he's #1 in my book for ending these games.

    7) Speaking of listening to me, how's my Chocolate Mama doing? Oh, Dark Angel, come out, come out wherever you are. Sending you all the best chocolates in the world, my dear!

    8) Since the Prof used a movie quote to put a nice pretty bow on the end-game of SP, allow me to do the same. The movie quote that most sums up the ending of SP for me: Tony Montana in Scarface - "This is so f**king bad, this is so f**king bad!" And the movie quote that best describes my exit interview for this game: Clemenza in The Godfather - "Won't see him no more . . . "
    Paradise Cove - Leader of the Darkwings (PM me about joining our guild)

    Remembering Nayjon (1970-2017), guildmate and lover of TPC. I'll miss you, brother!

    Secret Passages - Billionaire Bandits

    The Billionaire Bandit club finished 78 strong and I'm proud of all who made this so much fun. Visit the Hall of Fame sticky thread for a list of Billionaire Bandits.

    Several months ago, I realized I forgot The Monday Madness. I never played again. I can’t bring myself to delete the game. My icon still shows I have “3” items of attention, I’ll leave it till I don’t.

    Hey, Igota, and all. Think about you guys a lot. Miss the fun we all had playing this game. I have played intermittently, but NOT the same! Haven’t checked the forum for ages, but glad to see some of the same folks still posting. Best to all and hope all is well with everyone ... It’s Derby fever in KY! God bless!

    Igota. Congrats on your Eagles and how ‘bout Nova! Philly’s got it all!

    Thanks Gotta for asking. Coming up six years cancer free.

    I have a new hobby now, hockey. No I do not play however all four grandchildren do, including my granddaughter. Two play house league as well as on select teams. I have spent so much time freezing my buns of in arenas I am not sure if I am ever going to thaw out. I ring the cow bell for goals scored and yell my head off when their teams score. Not quite the refined grandmother image.

    Still does not make up for playing Secret Passages. Oh I really miss the weekend challenges.
