We have Roamers in the Yard!

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

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

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 couple of 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?

Mystery Manor iPad Update 4.0.0

a few months ago

Mystery Manor iPad Update 4.0.0 arrived in our Manor yesterday and it is filled with problems!

GI says:

  • Draw back the veil on the Event that shook the Manor to its foundations. Exciting adventures and a new room await

New Items

  • There are 10 new Collections.
  • There is a new room in the Basement called the Mirror Garden. It is the room just below the Pool.
  • The space around the First Floor has been rearranged to place the Guild and Arena icons at the bottom next to the Birthday icons and the Flying Saucer has been moved up under the Secret Living room icon.
  • New Creatures in the Basement are the Fanged Griffen and the Frumious Griffen. They each take 3 Honest Mirrors and Energy or Strength to Banish. They give Collection items from the Dual Nature Collection.
  • There are 3 new Fairies in the Basement to banish which take Rose Petals. This is a Heart Shaped Rose Petal Item, not the named Rose Petals you may already have in your inventory. I feel like I’ve seen this same icon before though. Looks like they give some of the new Collection items and the Caduceus for exploring the ever elusive Alchemist’s Laboratory.
    • Tulip Fairy – 2 Rose Petals
    • Exquisite Flower Fairy – 3 Rose Petals
    • Spring Flowers Fairy – 3 Rose Petals

Known Problems

  • The Will-o’-the-Wisp and Native Idol Phenomena on the First Floor are not showing in their Pipe and Card modes. There are notes on the official FB page that GI is working on this.
  • There seems to be a problem with the Honest Mirrors dropping from the Basement rooms. Again GI says they are looking into this.
  • On the right hand side, the Easter Bunny event to charge 5 chocolate eggs to an Easter chest has returned.

I am working on the page and quest string for the Mirror Garden. Also will get the Collections table updated!

Please post your comments and questions here for the Update and on the Mirror Garden page for that quest string.

Collections Table and Page Improvements

Collections Table and Page Improvements have been ongoing for the past several months.

Collections Table

The Collections Table is now mostly complete with the following information.

  • Collection Number
  • Collection Name
  • Room – I’ve tried to list which room, creature, or event the collection items can be found
  • Collection Items – this includes a (c) or (D) for those that can be purchased
  • Reward – There is a notation for the ones that give Phenomena
  • Collection Gift
  • Chargers

Please if you have additional information post it on the Collections Table page so I can update the table.

We are working on downloadable pdfs for the Collections Table and one that includes the Hidden Collections.

Support the Site

As many of you know we do this on our own time and with our own money. We currently have a page up to Support the Site using a US Amazon Link. There is also a pop-up that will appear every 14 days on a page to remind you that you can do this. If you’re a regular Amazon shopper like I am using this link helps us cover our server and domain name expenses. It does not cost you any more money for your Amazon purchase.

We will be working in the future to add a link for our UK and Canadian shoppers.

We are making every effort not to give you ads on every page or on every visit. If you experience any difficulties with these messages, please post a comment so we can investigate and fix the problem.

Page Header

I think our Page Header is dismal! I would love to see an image up there that portrays the page. I have been racking my brain for ages for the right thing. I need an image with the same words but some nice colors, maybe a couple little images. Something fun!

If you have any ideas or happen to be a graphic artist I could use help with this one!

A Few Tips

  • When you need help with something try going to the page about the room or event and looking there.
  • If you have a quest you don’t know where it goes use the Search window on the right and type the name in there. Be sure to use quotation marks for more than one word.
  • When asking a question about something try to get it on the page for the Room, Boss or other thing you’re looking for.

Gift Giving Tips

Below is a Gift box and Wish List from a Friends Manor page. Notice that the Apple and ID have a little number up in the corner. These are chargers. It just means you have some in your inventory.

This friend wants those chargers but they are NOT in my Choose a gift section. This is okay. As long as you are a high enough level to give the gift you just need to tap on the gift above to send it. It will NOT remove the charger from your inventory.

For other tips on Gifting please see our Great Tips! Section. I will be working on updating those pages in the future.

Easter Update 3.8.0

a few months ago

The Easter Update 3.8.0 has arrived to Mystery Manor for the iPad in the middle of the St. Patrick’s Day Event.

Find the Easter Event 2016 on our pages.

Will this make it harder to get our weapons to banish the St. Patrick’s Roamers? Will it cause a problem getting your 60 Snatchin Mode searches done?

Don’t forget to collect your Friday bonus by visiting the official Mystery Manor Facebook Page.

GI Tells Us

  • Meet the newest inhabitant of Mystery Manor – Monsieur Omelettier. He really knows how to whip up some eggs.
  • Help the Easter Bunny in the search for lost eggs and to prepare new exquisite dishes with Monsieur Omelettier.
  • Start renovating: we’ve added some beautiful new furniture for Easter!


There is only one new Collection so perhaps we will have the opportunity to fill in some of the older Collections. The table has been updated.


Please let us know what you find so we can share it with others

Other Changes

People are commenting that when you collect your gifts they disappear too fast now. However, I notice that the Collection box in the center top drops down for every item you collect.
