What Do You Do With Your Gold Splinterlands Cards?

Hi Everyone,

As many of you know, I have been playing Splinterlands since it started and over this time, I have accumulated many gold cards. It was nice in the beginning but as I grow my decks, many of these gold cards are no use to me as they are too low level. A friend of mine who also plays Splinterlands loves hoarding them as they increase their DEC return if they win but for mine, the cards are too low level to match up.

Would renting them out be a good idea? A part of me is to keep them in the hope they will increase in value but another part of me wants to just get ‘something’ for them since I am not using them. Remember these cards are hard to get and knowing the game is expanding, give me some ideas about what I should do with them? In the end, I may not do anything and just leave them there but it would be good to get more heads together and maybe find a better way of utilising these cards.

Just FYI, my most expensive gold card is the unicorn. I rarely use it but there is NO intention of selling it right now as it is my first gold legendary card ever in this game! Maybe this one I could rent out  ….

New Happy Colour App Update with Travelgirl

Hi Everyone,

Two days ago I shared a new app I’m using constantly these two days called Happy Colour. It is an app that allows you to colour various pictures by choosing the given numbers. It is brainless work as it is a great tool to help you de-stress and make you feel like you have accomplished something. I’ve had a stressful few weeks due to work so this app came in handy. I normally while waiting for the bus or on the bus and these two nights while watching tv.

Let me show you some of the finished products below since my last post. There are actually a lot more but decided just to show you a few. Depending on the complexity, each picture will take 15 minutes on average with the longest one taking 30 minutes (lots of details). There are different themes and genres. Each day they provide you with at least 10 new pictures to colour and a special one for each day.

If you have accomplished some milestones, you will get additional pictures to colour just like shown below.

When you start a new picture, you can zoom in to see the numbers associated with the colours below. Just tap the colours and then the number, the section will be coloured. Highly recommend those who want to relax and certainly a task that doesn’t require any thinking and makes you feel like you are a professional artist after each picture is done.

Travelgirl’s Game Review – Progress with Trade Island

Hi Everyone,

It has been awhile I wrote a game review. Around a week ago, I got a message from a follower of mine on my WordPress to see how I’m doing with the game I played for a long time called Trade Island. Things have been a bit hectic during my time back at work so haven’t been playing many mobile games but I have settled down so I am able to continue again. Since it was Chinese New Year a couple of weeks ago, the Trade Island game developers have incorporated this celebration to the game which made it more interesting. So before I start to show you the Chinese New Year special feature, the game offered me a special deal of 200 gems for $4.49. I have plenty of gems at that time so I will pass.

Now let’s have a the Chinese New Year task involve. As you can see, there are characters with the “red packets” glowing on top of their head. You just need to put them to the nearest accommodation and you will be able to accumulate eventually enough to get some bonuses after the missions. It’s actually a lot easier than the previous tasks before which was surprising. They also gave me a lucky cat which I ended up putting with my buildings hoping it will bring more luck and money to my town.

Another win was that a new sculpture has been completed which was an achievement. That is it for this week of the game. Hope to bring more exciting stages and new challenging next week.

Things People Spend Money On ….

Hi Everyone,

Just over the weekend, I encountered two things that really make me think why would anyone would want to spend money on certain things. Don’t get me wrong, I splurge on many things as well including bags and shoes (not so much shoes now) but everyone has their “hobby” or “must have”.

So let me show you the two things that WOWed me. First, I was doing the weekend shopping and every time I go past the fish store, I will definitely check out what is fresh and the prices so I can compare it with the ones in the supermarket. So I saw Tooth Fish which I know is expensive but is it really worth $129.99AUD? Call me silly but I will be happy with fish half that price.

Another thing was a friend sent me the below. A mint condition copy of the Super Mario Bros for $140K!! Like really? I actually have a copy somewhere at my mum’s house so maybe I should dig it up and see how much it’s worth. It’s not a mint copy but I’ll be happy to get half that price right?

Is there anything you like to splurge on? Tell me about it!

Travelgirl’s Game Review – Progress with Trade Island

Hi Everyone,

It has been two weeks since my last update so I thought it is time to update you all on my progress. Yes, I am still playing this game and still totally hooked! Just as I thought maybe its time to stop, a new challenge happens.

IMG_6699

Check out the island newsletter. We’ve got guests on the island. This challenge is to serve as many guests as possible to get to the main prize. The guests have different requirements and it’s up to you to cook up some good meals for them. I love them and at them at the same time as their meals take too long to cook!

IMG_8649

IMG_8646IMG_8645

If you want to level up faster, these were my “deals” of the day. Too expensive for my liking

IMG_8648IMG_8647

I have also opened up two sections of the island so I am slowly expanding my field. The more I expand the more possibilities of getting more trades in eventually.

IMG_8650IMG_8651

The other milestone I need to reach is to unlock this new tribe I have discovered far away from my actual town. I have all the tools and equipment needed but lacking in funds to unlock it. I find that the hardest part of this game is to save up enough money to unlock each obstacle unless you play 24/7

IMG_8653

Lastly, another milestone which seems a long way for me is to upgrade the town hall. I am hoping to look after the island guest well so I can get enough resources to progress further into the game. Look forward to sharing another update with you soon!

Travelgirl’s Game Review – Progress with Trade Island

Hi Everyone,

Another week on my game and this week a new update has been given to players. I was able to unlock the land to this new area which leads to the “clouds” … not sure what this means but take a look at it below.

IMG_6699

IMG_8523IMG_8522

Another exciting bit of news is I just upgraded my Town Hall! It has been a while since the last upgrade so now I can increase my population and have a new resident. In addition to the above, I am also able to build more properties and businesses so my town can grow.

IMG_8526

 

I am now trying to accumulate as many gold and shovel as possible to buy a land so it can open up to a new tribe for me. This looks like some new group of people that I can interact with as well as increase my way of playing the game. It costs 50k of gold and I estimate it will take at least 3-4 days of nonstop playing to get to that point so I’m hoping by the next update, I would have already bought the land and started on the quest to meet these new citizens.

IMG_8524IMG_8525

 

Lastly, this is the new update of the “cloud” town. I’m really excited about this as what I can see, it brings in a new type of gameplay. Hope to see the new land by next week!

Travelgirl’s Game Review – Progress with Trade Island

Hi Everyone,

It has been nearly a fortnight since my last update and a few things have progressed with the game I am currently playing called Trade Island. Let’s see what has changed since my last update.

IMG_6699

Our visitors have finally left the island. It was very pretty stressful trying to maintain my normal upgrades, citizens and tasks on top of the guests it was too much for the machinery and times that I have. It felt like I have to log in every 20-30 minutes just to maximise everything I can potentially make with my resources to fulfill as many orders as possible. But let’s look at my island now since the guests have gone. I have also rearranged a bit of my island so it looks a bit neater.

IMG_8326IMG_8327IMG_8328IMG_8329

These are my new quests. I have noticed that the requirement is getting harder and harder as the number of items has increased dramatically. Since my last update, I was on level 34, now after 2 weeks I’m at 37

IMG_8333

Let’s have a look at the latest news – we didn’t get any rewards for reading it these two weeks

IMG_8331IMG_8332

So this is all for my update this fortnight.
