Mystery Manor iPad Update 4.7.0

Mystery Manor iPad Update 4.7.0

GI released Mystery Manor iPad Update 4.7.0 with update only features today. Some of these updates are a little cryptic to me so let me know what you know about them.

What’s New in Version 4.7.0

  • The reward for daily contests is now given out in a new window.
    • I’ll have to see if I can get a screen shot of this.
  • We’ve fixed the bug with the Compass display in the Zodiac mode.
  • We dealt with the issue which allowed removing shadowing in some phenomena modes.
  • When the saved copy of the game is loaded, you can no longer gain additional points in the mini-game leagues.
    • This one especially puzzles me. Does this mean every time you leave Mystery Manor and go to another app on your iPad you will have to quit it completely in order to score more points in the mini-games?
  • You won’t see false notifications of guild events any longer.
  • The banner showing the number of items in the room will be off for quite some time.
  • We’ve reduced the size of the display of error you make while exploring the rooms.
    • Still, I wonder if they have some future plan for the game that will make those errors count against us.

That’s all I have for now. Please let us know if you find any glitches or great improvements in your game play.

Support Our Site

As many of you know this is a website done completely by volunteers that play the game. However, we do have costs to maintain the site. We work very hard to keep the ads that would pay the costs associated with this website from interfering with your web reading experience.

Up until this past weekend we only had a link for the Amazon Affiliate in the US. Now, Ken worked very hard to get links for Canada, Germany, France and the UK. You can get to all those links on the Support the Site page.

There is also a popup you should see every 14 days at the most as a gentle reminder to link to Amazon from our site so that we can get the tiny portion they give to us for advertising for them. If you see that popup every day then please let me know so we can work out the reason. I hate ads in my web pages and sometimes don’t go to sites because of them.

Using this link does not cost you any more to shop at Amazon!

We want this page to be about Mystery Manor, not everything else you’ve ever browsed for on the web!

We appreciate all our users and thank you so very much for being supportive of our efforts. This page has become a full-time job for me to clean up and keep up with so I appreciate your patience while I clean up the pages and provide better ways for you to get the information you need in daily play!

The new tables are an awesome feature. I use them the most often during game play and our friends that have helped compile them are doing an awesome job. Every bit of stuff posted on this web page takes time out of someones game play!

Mystery Manor iPad Update 4.6.0

GI Tells Us What’s New in Version 4.6.0

Did you know that deep within Mystery Manor there’s a room where Charles Louis, a well-known detective, is being held captive? Rescue Charles and find out who’s behind this crime. The new room is full of dark mysteries as well as useful items!

And that’s not all!

  • You can now send help requests to five players at a time.
  • If you’re exploring a room in a certain mode for the first time, special hints will help you figure everything out.
  • We’ve added a panel that shows how many items you need to find in order to successfully explore the room.
  • The window showing rewards for mini-games at the end of the week is now much prettier.
  • Mini-games are now protected from cheaters.
  • The video in the game’s intro has been updated.
  • We fixed the error with furniture attracting or scaring off phenomena in rooms where phenomena don’t appear.
  • The game FAQ has been updated.

Things of Note

  • The new room in the Detective’s Room. It is located in the Basement, next to the Pool and under the Cuddy. You will have to Assemble it and the items are from Collections so if you gift it from a wall request it will come out of your Collections Inventory.
  • The Detective’s Room page will be updated as soon as I have time to look at the game and gather information.
  • There are 6 new Collections.
  • There are a lot of little changes in this update so please post any comments; good or bad on how things are working.
  • The Ask a Friend is a nice feature. I tried it this morning and it eliminates the constant Please Wait on my old iPad2. I do wonder why they only allowed you to ask 5 at a time!2016-08-04 09.06.58.png
  • Along with Adding a Panel to show How Many Items you need to find in a room when you tap on an item that is not in the list a red X shows to tell you it’s a wrong item. It was hard to capture, took 2 of us, but you can see the Red X on the Flashlight in the image.

Roamers Have Arrived!

Roamers Have Arrived!

We have Roamers on the First Floor!

We have Roamers in the Basement!

We have Roamers in the Yard!

2016-07-28 08.39.05.png

We even have Roamers in Space!

And Now We Have Roamers on the Mystery Manor iPad Fun Page!

Thanks to a huge effort by fellow players and volunteers! This is so Awesome! I am thrilled! I used it last weekend for the Guild Event!

I place it with the Collections Tab because I think it’s a Collection of Mystery Manor Objects! You can view the Roamers of Mystery Manor table and search it just like the Collections Table!

Web Site Updates and Update 4.5.0

Web Site Updates

I have a great team of volunteers working on new informational pages for the website.

First Floor Furniture

Jolyn has worked tirelessly to get this table showing all options to purchase First Floor Furniture put together after GI announced they were going to remove unpurchased holiday Furniture. I’ve placed the page under the Great Tips heading. We will continue to update it so that it’s an easy place to see all your options for furniture in the rooms.

Other Web Page Updates in Progress

My fantastic volunteers are also working on creating a table that contains all the roamers, weapons to banish them and rewards given. It’s a large table and we are working out the best way to format it for display.

We also have a table in progress to show all the Achievements in case players want to see if there’s something they can work on to get special rewards.

And as my new player, Fun Page Willow, makes her way through the quests I am collecting information and going through every page for rooms and bosses and making updates. I am overwhelmed and I love all of you for helping me with gifts. I am also trying to complete events on my MsWillow player. When I have what I need for updating older web pages the Fun Page Willow account will go away.

Everyone in this game is so fantastic and helpful and I appreciate all of you even if I don’t have time to type you all return messages inside the game.

Game Play Changes

When GI took away the Hidden Collections and made them visible we added them to the Collections Table. These items are not giftable and cannot be purchased. Does anyone know how you obtain them now?

Now when you charge the Time Control Artifact you receive collection items for various other Collections that there has not been a way to get when an event ends.

One larger problem I see is the Completion of An Epochal Gift requirement for the 3rd Anniversary. Previously you got the prize saber by charging the Time Control Artifact and just searching for 2 hours. If anyone gets to this quest in the 3rd Anniversary quest string I’d love an update. Of course I will get there eventually with Fun Page Willow.

GI Releases Update 4.5.0

Today Game Insight released Update 4.5.0 which was listed as Game Stability Improvements. Hopefully this fixes problems some of you may be having.

Mystery Manor iPad Update 4.4.0

Mystery Manor iPad Update 4.4.0 brings us an Independence Day event, a new look to the yard and some Collection Changes.

What GI Tells Us

  • Summer Events are kicking off soon. The Beach Queen and the Tan Swimmer will help you out.
  • The old snatching pilgrim, Uncle Snatch, is coming to the Manor to celebrate Independence Day.
  • Decorate the rooms for the holiday. The 4th of July isn’t the same without a star-spangled banner!
  • Take a look at the yard; the new map will leave you impressed!
  • Rewards have been changed for the Geniuses of Strategy, Enlightened Minds, and Save Our Science collections.
  • The error involving players not getting full rewards for charging collections has been fixed.

Collection Changes

Oddly, I just checked every collection yesterday and updated the Collections Table. Thankfully GI told us which ones they changed. I have updated the table with the new rewards and kept the old ones in there for now. Just so it’s easy for everyone to compare.

  • Enlightened Minds
    • Breakfast
    • 5 Time Freezes
    • Chest of the Truce Envoy (One of the sets of 20 Golden Horseshoes, 20 Silver Horseshoes, 20 Copper Horseshoes, 20 Oil Cans, 20 Pearl Shells, 20 Marine maps or 20 Gold doubloons) NOTE: This is an OR instead of all of them so a huge reduction in the reward.
    • Negotiator’s Casket (Includes 20 each gold, silver and copper Horseshoes, oil cans, pearl shells, marine maps and gold doubloons)Gone
  • Geniuses of Strategy
    • 100 Runestones
    • Box with Tools (You’ll find some tools helpful for exploring the rooms) NOTE: I received 10 Enhanced Flashlights and 10 Time Freezes
    • Box of Tools (includes 5 Each gold bombs, magic magnet, Prolonged Decelerators, Improved pointers, flares and time freezes) Gone
  • Save Our Science
    • 30 Lollipops
    • Chest of the Truce Envoy (One of the sets of 20 Golden Horseshoes, 20 Silver Horseshoes, 20 Copper Horseshoes, 20 Oil Cans, 20 Pearl Shells, 20 Marine maps or 20 Gold doubloons)
    • 5 Compasses (Gone)
    • 30 Portals to Hyperion

There are 4 New Collections for the Independence Day Event. I wonder why we only do the US Holidays?

Summer Events

This event will Kick off Soon. I will post a page as soon as it starts and put the link here.

Independence Day Event

Again this event will kick off Soon. We will see if it’s the same as previous years or if it’s all new quests.

This Quest String is the same as the Independence Day event from 2015!

Map Changes

They have moved on to making the yard look pretty.


There will be new items for your rooms in the Furniture selections. Unfortunately these event ones they give are usually only good if you remove another one so make your choice of the best one to have in your room for the benefits you want to receive.

Mystery Manor iPad Update 4.2.0

a couple of months ago

Mystery Manor iPad Update 4.2.0

Mystery Manor iPad Update 4.2.0 was released today with a new First Floor look and a new Basement Room.

What GI Tells Us

  • Check out the update map: it’s even more beautiful now!
  • Meet Alan Stark! This young and ambitious director will tell you all about the secrets of cinematography!
  • Construct a cozy and comfortable movie theater for the inhabitants of Mystery Manor!
  • Reach new heights: test yourself and get awesome rewards for unlocking new achievements!
  • Keys to the Mirror Garden can now be found in Mystical Chests, as well as in chests that are given for guild event participation.
  • Keys from rooms now drop a little more often.
  • Fixes in the leagues: now all players’ scores will reset correctly at the start of a new rating week.

New First Floor Map

It’s true, they rearranged the First Floor yet again. Make sure you visit all of your Anniversary houses to get your daily rewards. They are no longer all next to each other.

New First Floor Layout

New Collections

There are 6 new collections for the Cinephile Room. They have been added at the top of the Collections list inside the game. I will get the Collections Table updated.

Cinephile Room

The new Cinephile Room is located in the Basement. It currently requires items you can request from your friends to open but it’s not as easy as that! Please see the page for all the information.


The Magic Lantern Collection, currently number 6 in the list, is what is needed to open the Cinephile Room. So, if you obtain one by banishing a roamer and you give it to a friend asking for it on your wall it will be deducted from your inventory.

If you do not have any in your inventory yet and you get a wall request you will NOT be able to give them.


GI promises us that we will get keys in our chests and that they will drop “a little more often”. Does this meaning during room searches? I have not had a single key drop today for any room. Has anyone else noticed any?

Fixes in the Leagues

Event though a  message was sent yesterday that said the week ended and you won, or not, in your Recreation Center Mini-Games this was not true. With the update today came the score you were at before the update.

There is now a time at the top of your game that states how much time is left in the rating week. This is a nice addition.

For New Players – Starting Over

a couple of months ago

For New Players – Starting Over

I’ve been playing this game for 4 years. However, I took over the iPad Fun Page about a year ago. The original author of this page did an awesome job creating, designing and posting here.  My very small team and I have worked hard over the past year bringing you quest strings and game information.

At this point in time I have many holes in the early quest strings and pages that need updated. So, as a new iPad came into the house I turned the old iPad 3 to be just for this game and I started over. It is very, very slow. I feel for anyone that is on anything older than an iPad Air.

My new play name is Fun Page Willow. My game code to friend me is 8c4883. If you would like to help me get through quests by sending items on my wish list and being there for me to request chargers from please feel free to add me. I will warn you that because it’s an early game and the iPad is so slow I will not be doing a lot of visiting. When I get everything I need this game character will be deleted.

For those of you that have been long time friends I will be a little behind in my MsWillow visiting and gifting while I try to get enough Energy to leave the other one rest more than a few hours at a time. Please forgive me while I work on this.

I am getting great information already. I just need to start typing like crazy. Soon I will have enough information on all the old pages that doing the new ones will just be easy updates! HA! I am crazy!

New Quest Strings Coming

So, if you’re just starting out in this game and can’t find information you can ask other players and post questions. I will do my best to fill all those gaps!

Starting the game is slow but before long you’ll have friends all over the world and they will keep you going through all the tough times.

The Collections Table

The Collections Table was my big project. It took me over a year to get it all filled in and complete. It will be kept up to date. Next on the list is to create one that contains the hidden collections. Also, we will be making it a downloadable PDF for those of you that feel the need to print it. It is a complicated table to turn into one and we want it to come out well. Plus we have limited time to get it right because our fantastic support, Ken, has a full time job and many other things to do for our private businesses. Hopefully he will get to it in the next few months.

A Roamers Table

I do have another table planned just like the Collections Table. It will be a Roamers Table. It will list all the roamers, their weapons and the gifts they give. Yes, this one will be a bigger challenge than the Collections Table. But I will start posting it as soon as I get enough to start the table.

If there is anyone out there that likes to work on a spreadsheet I would love some help! We can even use 3 people, one for each floor of the manor. I can combine spreadsheets in the end. I will actually start the spreadsheet with all the columns for whoever wants to do it. It’s a commitment though and will take time away from game play!

Thank you!

Again, Thank you everyone for all your patience and understanding. This is an awesome website and we work very hard to keep it up to date. I love all the players. If it weren’t for you I would not play the game.

Mystery Manor iPad Update 4.1.0

a few months ago

Mystery Manor iPad Update 4.1.0 was released today.

GI Says:

  • Do you believe in luck? Seems that today fortune is smiling on you: the Maneki-Neko (Japanese Lucky Cat) has decided to stay with you a while. It’s rare opportunity, so don’t miss out.
  • Now you can play mini games whenever you want! Make your way to the top and claim a worthy reward. (GI FB Admin says they are not in our manors yet.)


  • Honest Mirrors Glitch has been fixed
  • I played a Native Idol that had been in my Manor and it was not the matching card game so I summoned a new one and it still wasn’t the card game. This does not seem to be fixed.

New Items

Japanese Lucky Cat

  • The Japanese Lucky Cat can be found in the lower right hand side of your Manor’s First Floor. He’s a slot machine and the first spin is Free.
  • You get 4 coins to start the game. My next spin says 3 Oriental Coins, they look like they have a little paw on them.
  • You can purchase 2 for 10 Diamonds. I’m not quite sure where you earn/win those coins yet but we will see as we play. The GI Facebook Admin is saying the only way to get the coins is to buy them.
  • This cat will be here for 14 days based on the small News Item in the list of right side information.

New Coins

Players are reporting receiving new coins when exploring rooms but we’re not sure what they’re for. All these coins in the game are getting hard to tell apart. How about some rubies or sapphires?
