Help an Arcadian
I would like to start a post to get all you great gamers out there to help the rest of us improve at all the HSN games. I know several of you have given me some pointers that have really helped me improve at some games I play all the time. But the information to find help on any particular game is hard to find because it sort of gets all convoluted with other stuff. So I am going to start with the 5 games that are always the Game Of The Week and see how we do in getting responses and then add more if you great gamers will post your strategies or just give out that little hint within a particular game that most of us didn’t even know is there. No “hint” is too small to those of us that don’t even know that something very simple is already in the game if you know where it is. I know this will involve a lot of different threads, but as I said, when you want help with just one game it’s difficult to find all the information so many of you have given. I will title all the Threads – Please help me with (game title). Please keep your responses to that game only. And please, for all of us that need help in improving our scores, post your questions and responses under that thread and let us know if the help is helping you or if you additional questions you want the other gamers to help you with. Just keep each thread focused on the game given in the title. My sincere hope is that we all can use these threads to improve at all the games – and if you just play 1 game – that’s OK too. The games are to have fun – but getting better is even more fun.
The game tags created by Lizzie818 and others are a great reference. There is not really a need to start seperate threads for each. That would just clutter up things too much.
How’d ya miss the tags? Starting a series of threads is definitely a bold move. I’ve never started a single thread, and I’ve been here for over 2 yrs!
#Lizzie818 and #Buddlemum, thanks for all the info. I think I was expecting a list of the games that I could just click on and the hints would be all together. I see what you mean about clicking on a conversation, though, and then looking for the hints you have done. I’ll practice, I promise! Thanks so much for your patience and persistance.:heart: And #lemire, thanks for getting this brought to the attention of those of us who were unaware of it.
The ctrl F tip will save me alot of time. I’m learning alot today. I think I need a glass of sweet tea. :womanvery-happy:
Your best bet is to learn from experience.
Playing over time will help you to
become more familiar with the games.
You don’t learn over night!
Best of luck and happy gaming.
mixmaster – don’t feel like you are the only one having issues. I did find several “tags” regarding games but they didn’t really offer the kind of help I was looking for. I did not have time to go through all of them and I didn’t find diagrams. I will have to go through my settings also to see if I am getting all the tags or not. I did however spend a bit of time going through some of those tags. It’s very hard to follow as they seem to be pieces of threads that have been saved on top of other threads and they are very difficult to follow the context. I also found a lot of stuff I just as soon wish that I had not found – a lot of people complaining about cheaters and other unfortunate things. I was rather upset about the whole thing and went to bed a little unnerved. As far as finding good info on games, I didn’t check out all the games – but it is so hard to follow a “tag” because as I said – you open up all the tags and they don’t follow a typical conversation. There is some good information in there – I guess you just have to find the time in order to go through it all. Let us know what kind of luck you have with your settings and I will do the same!!!!
Just color me slow to learn. Here is what I’m doing and I’m finding nothing about the games:
I go to Browse Conversations, click on HSN Arcade, scroll down to Top Tags, click on View All.
All I see are the title of the conversations under Arcade for the last month or so. Not a list of games and tips.
Someone who has patience, please. I really want to get this. Thanks. :heart:
I will reiterate for you FedExGuy – I did not know about the “tags” until now and I thought I had made it very clear that I think they are excellent and that Lizzie and anyone else that was involved in archiving all that information is to be commended for a huge job and very well done. There is a lot of information there and I said it is a HUGE resource for anybody that did not know about the tags. If anything good comes of this – I certainly hope it is that many more people will be aware of the “tags” and how to access them. If that is the only thing that is learned from this – the TAGS alone were worth the postings.
With all the tags posted for all the games and by name of each game, seems all the individual topics are unnecessary. When the tags were done by Lizzie818, they were posted by the name of each game. The help for the game, how to play best and even some diagrams are there. A lot of work went into those posts.
Please everyone – take note of what Velvet said regarding tags. If you did not know what they were before now, I’m sure you will be as shocked as I was to see how much information is there. There is indeed “tags” on just about all the games and someone has done a tremendous amount of work in trying to archive all the responses together. Thank You to all who have done this. The only problem I have with using it is the fact that you don’t really know what the questions or answers are until you open them. The “tags” don’t read like a normal thread. I have thought back and forth if I should take the 5 threads down I just posted or leave them and see what happens. I have decided on the later. If no one is interested in any of them they will be off the main board within a day or two. If people find them helpful then it is worth them being there. It certainly wasn’t my intent to step on anyone’s toes – I know I am in need of help with several of the games and assume many others are also. And I hope I am not the only one that did not know how many “tags” there were or how to access them on a particular topic. If these threads fade away to “threadlessness” – hopefully many of us now know how to use the “tags” not only for the Arcade but on countless topics. Thank You again Velvet for the info.
I have no idea what the tags are Velvet. I will go there and take a look and get back at you.
There are already tags with game tips. Go to the arcade forum and look under the smile board, then cli k on view all. You will see most of the games listed. Lizzie has taken the time to tag most games and she is an excellent gamer. Why don’t you use those?
