Attention of Arcade Expert at HSN
I know you are having problems but I am not the best at these games and need all the points I can get. Only got 50 tickets for solving puzzle. I am also distressed over the small amount of points we get on the new games. I solved Spider Solitaire in 8+ minutes and received 10 points. Is that fair when some of the older games runs out of time before I am finished and I get 50 points?
It would be nice if a representative would address these issues an keep us posted on process in solving them.
If no one acknowledges our problems we have no way of knowing if you are aware of them.
These are free games let us all be thankful for what we get and the cheer it brings us. If you aren’t having fun don’t play. Pretty simple stuff. I love the new games and appreciate all HSN does for us.
Happy holidays and goodluck all.
What do you mean about Mahjong Dimensions? I’ve been playing it’s fun but getting to 3rd round stressed me out on the time clock. The dark one gives u extra time, not a lot but still can’t beat the clock, if I reshuffle u loose seconds which is pretty shady for a game you aren’t playing for money but tix u have 1 chance in millions to win something u like.
I used to love playing the Majongg Dimensions game. I don’t know what you did to the games, but there is no challenge in playing them anymore. I will no longer be playing any games. To build in something to stop people from “cheating” on a game like this is silly. I played it to relax me and like a bit of a challenge. Now it is nothing but a frustration.
Maybe it’s me but I don’t understand why people get so upset over a free online game/arcade game?
Threatening to report people over a puzzle???? That gives a few points worth nothing??
I haven’t been able to open the daily jigsaw puzzle for two days now. Also can’t play game of the week Solitaire because it says it’s not available. I truly am about to give up on this site for fun. Just not happening anymore.
No don’t tell me to clear cookies, yadda yadda.
I haven’t been able to get the jigsaw puzzles to show up for the
last couple of weeks. How do we fix that?? I liked trying to
solve it, and hoping to win that gift card for the value of the
Today’s Special, etc…not likely, I know–but still fun to try!
Not having fun with it since I can’t even see the darned thing!
I thought it was our home computer causing the trouble (because
we just had it fixed a couple of weeks ago), but others like you
are having trouble, too, so……….arrgh! JollyJelly
I have just reported that the hs n arcade team have given up on us. I reported to supervisors we are not receiving double points for 24 hours!!!! If mods get paid them their going to be reprimanded I hope cause I really don’t appreciate being ignored. Also, I rented that @lizzie818 & @velveteen rabbit have been helping us more than mods.
Andrea aka ,59-60
I was told the Mods aren’t reading the arcade forum, best to call supervisor.
We are not receiving double points for some reason, if Mods get paid, I’m definitely filing a complaint they are constantly telling us it’s our problem, our computers, tablets, you’re 1000% right, we should be taking in points I hope the five is double points all week like last time.
I’m playing the tri peaks solitude each time you select a new card, they sometimes pull in 2 cards at once.
Send all complaints to customer service, the Mods have given up on us @hsn_kyle.
So glad you posted this. RE: two cards at once on Tri Peaks. I play Artic Tri Peaks. I thought it was me because I played so fast. I slowed down and it still happens. I liked the old games too. Why do old games have to be removed when new ones are added???? Or is it a limit on band width or something like that.??? I don’t play nearly as much or as often as before. Why do corporations always feel a need to fix things that aren’t broken????
Sappho, sorry for your frustration. The 50 points on the puzzle isn’t about the new Arcade. When the puzzle was designed prizes were awarded based on the best time. Because of that they built something into the program to detect “cheating.” Consequently if you pause the puzzle or if the program detects a slow down in the internet speed (as can happen if your computer begins installing updates), it only awards 50 points no matter how fast you play. Normally you get 250 points if you’re under 5 minutes, 200 points under 8 or 9 (?) minutes, and 150 after that. I’m not sure if there is another decline in ticket points after that or not.
The Arcade Team is aware of the issue with tickets. (If it’s any consolation, I’ve been playing Sudoku and it is awarding 0 tickets no matter what.) As I have posted elsewhere, they told me in an email that they were close to being able to resolve the ticket issue. I’m not sure what’s held them up because I got that message at least 2 weeks ago.
I did ask the mods to have someone post at least weekly on the update thread that they started, but there still haven’t been any posts. I don’t think they understanding how frustrating the lack of information is.
I think what you do for free is awesome of you, being a mod an acting like one, I’m not sure if you are or aren’t one, but I surely deserve it.
PS was a mod for many years mentoring peop!e for cochlear implants, but had to stop as bad no time with work and personal stuff.
Daily puzzle, very easy to cheat with 2 devices. I’m only using one as you know my problems with the tablets I have.
There’s a 1 year warranty on idea play which I might send back as I don’t understand how W10 works with the tunnel and doors or whatever they call them.
It took me 57 min on one puzzle I scored like 2712, in the mascara one I scored 2017 I think took me approx 30 min or more to complete. How does the scoring work to get up to 4000+ approx scoring in board? Can you explain?
Thank you my friend
PS how do I get to private chat with others and it VS Forum??
Andrea, not sure what you mean by cheating with two browser windows. It’s not cheating to open a picture of the puzzle in 1 browser window and do the puzzle in another as I’ve suggested before.
The puzzle is scored by subtracting the number of seconds it takes you to complete it from 5,000. Thus, if you complete the puzzle in 5 minutes (300 seconds), your score will be 4,700. I think you must have read the timer wrong on your games. Your 2,712 game would be 38 minutes 8 seconds and the 2,017 would be 49 minutes 43 minutes
I don’t know anything about the private chat function–didn’t even know it existed on HSN.
I can use another device to see which pieces go where, as you can bring up the picture it shows the pieces in puzzle, however, I don’t do that because I like the challenge, of doing myself.
As for private chat, I was talking about I used it once to chat with you, it’s called chat among youselves, and I forgot how to find it. But I’m glad others saw the double cards as I backed them 3-4 times to get one card not 2, was like playing with sticky cards but so far today it slow but working a bit better. However, what about all the double points we lost on Friday to Sat, I’m on a new med and reacted badly from it. Guess it mixed with the other meds I take so need red iced dose of one med that normally gives me relief R which costs more. So I haven’t been on line til today.
Missing every one and wondered about the double ticket loss. And low ticket count for winning today should have been 50 not 25.
Hugs dear friend
