  1. I’ve been playing since the game started, but for the past two weeks I’ve only used the two free daily plays. I have all the pieces, except the rare ones. Last week, I won 125 stars, and I just now won 50 stars tonight. At least it’s something. I’ll keep trying for a bigger win. Good luck everyone!

    • Congrats Kim, you’re doing better than me lol. I missed the 1st couple of days but I have two pieces in every section and have won nothing I keep getting a lot of repeat pieces. I play free daily and buy twice a week.

  2. Ps you can get extra plays from the purchase related challenges on the same link as the no purchase play. But you can only enter each challenge once that way.

  3. It’s addictive but all I’ve got is all the common pieces and 8 stars, all from the first days I played — has anyone won anything here?
