Valentine’s 2016 Update 3.6.0

Event , Update

2016-02-09 10.03.31.pngIt seems we are just going to have one event after another this year. No sooner did we finish Christmas and the Anniversary Quests arrived. But I’m guessing many of you powered right through those anniversary quests and are happy to see the Valentine’s 2016 update arrive so you have some quests to work on.

Update 3.6.0 released on February 9, 2016:

  • In the run-up to spring, you’ll have to return the magic of the senses to our world! Cupid General Valentine will be the first to help you with this challenging task.
  • Prove the theorem of deep and passionate feelings with the great professor Gaugin. Make the citizens of Mystery Manor happy with the new Eye for Love Mode.
  • What can help you melt the ice of the fading winter? A romantic dinner over candles and some new furniture for your bedroom, of course!

There’s a new pop-up when you open the game to tell you what the update is about. That’s a nice addition so we don’t have to go to the update dialog in iTunes to look it up.

The snow is gone and the grass is green!

There are 14 new Collections, bringing us to 492 total! Aren’t we lucky that Ken made the fantastic, searchable Collections Table for us. I had a hard time when there were only 200. As I was adding the new Collections I noticed that the 4th Anniversary Collection number 475 Dessert Master and currently has a Russian name and Russian Rewards! It’s good we have it translated already. I’m sure they’ll get it fixed.

I’ve added the Valentine’s Event Page. As usual, any information is appreciated. I’m working on adding information to the Collections table that tells the room or event a collection goes with and if possible where some of the collection items come from. For example the 4th Anniversary Snatchin’s give collection items. It will take time but if you have a list of any of that and could post if for me that would be great!

4th Anniversary Update 3.5.0 Arrives to Mystery Manor iPad


4th Anniversary

The 4th Anniversary Update 3.5.0 has arrived. The only thing we see thus far is the 5 new Collections. None of these collections require coins or diamonds to buy so we know we won’t have a Boss.

GI tells us What’s New:

  • Help the inhabitants of Mystery Manor set the festive table to celebrate the game’s fourth birthday. Uncle Perchill and team Golden Snatchin will give you a hand preparing lots of different dishes.
    • I glanced at the new Collections and they are are Food Related!
  • Add some festive flavor to the rooms by furnishing them with new objects.
    • If you see what’s new and exciting and helpful in the new furniture let us know.

The Collections Table is updated!

I have Added a page for the 4th Anniversary and taken comments from here to post there so don’t be alarmed if your comment isn’t showing anymore. I take them away when they’ve been incorporated in the page. Thank you everyone for submitting all the information!

Mystery Manor iPad Update 3.4.0 for the Holidays


2015-12-15 18.33.57.png.jpgGood Morning! It’s time for the Holiday Quests. Let’s hope they go better than last year.

Here’s what GI tells us about Version 3.4.0:

  • Christmas is almost here, but not everyone is enjoying wintertime. The cute Frost de Froste is very scared because this year winter is too warm. Only you can save him.
  • Danny Claus is visiting the Manor this year. Alas, he has had trouble sending out all the Christmas Gifts on time to the kids around the world. Katherine is giving him a hand, but without your help, they won’t succeed.
  • Have you ever dreamed of time travel? Well, maybe the mysterious gift on the first floor will give you a chance for such an unusual journey! They say there’s an enigmatic portal inside that takes you to the Hall of Christmas Past!
  • And that’s not nearly all! We have prepared so many surprises for you.
    1. A large number of new collections and rewards.
      • There are now 473 Collections, 15 new so that’s a lot of collections to get items for and celebrate the holidays.
      • There are 20 Artifacts, 2 new for the holidays.
    2. Three unique holiday rooms: search them all.
    3. The new Miracle of Christmas game mode that allows you to find special holiday decorations.
      • You can purchase candy canes in Bedroom, Library, African room, Living room, and Oceanic room. Cost coins and increases coins when exploring the room. You can actually buy 2 in the bedroom And 2 in the living room.
      • You can purchase a Holiday Rug/Bath Mat in the Bathroom for 50 Treasury Coins. However, I suspect it will go away after the Holiday. Perhaps to return next year. It will Increase the chance to find items required to charge the collections by 10%.
    4. Thematic holiday design of the Manor: you have never seen anything like it.
      • Snow! I thought they said Winter was too Warm!

I’ve created a Christmas Event 2015 page that will give the links to all the other pages for each room.

Please post information you have to share with others. I will update this post and add room and quest strings as soon as I can.

Mystery Manor 3.3.0 Update for Thanksgiving


In the US we celebrate Thanksgiving and Mystery Manor likes to help us by giving us tasks to do in between our families coming in town and cooking huge turkey dinners. This update came in the middle of the night for me, earlier than they usually release it.

2015-11-20 08.44.36.png.jpg

Update Version 3.3.0 States:

Thanksgiving is coming, and Mystery Manor is in a mess! Elsa is locked up in her room waiting for her frienemy Hilda. Katherine has almost burnt down the kitchen trying to cook pies, and Benny’s trying to add his favorite drink to the cranberry sauce. It’s time to take matter into your own hands and save the day!

  • A NEW LOCATION — the Restaurant! Who said that Thanksgiving dinners need to be homemade? Open the Restaurant,which will be able to compete with the best gourmet establishments in the world!
    • Thanksgiving for us is Thursday, November 26. If you push the page up the Restaurant is between the 1st and 2nd birthday cakes. For those of you that don’t have them yet it’s below the African Room.
  • NEW QUESTS! Complete holiday quests and find out if it’s possible for Hilda and Elsa to become friends again!
  • NEW COLLECTIONS! Assemble them all and get a chest full of useful resources and a unique piece of furniture!
    • I see 6 new collections. The Collections Table has been updated. I added the word (Phenomena) next to all the ones I could find as a reward for charging so if you need any to summon searching on this will bring the list of all of them.

And that’s not all!

  • Take part in new contests, make your way to the top and win stunning prizes.
  • Adorn Mystery Manor with new pieces of furniture to create an unmatched interior!

As usual if you have quest strings I would love to have them to post. I will add a page as soon as I get the quests to show up!


  • I notice that the problem with being charged the 5 Diamonds to change your name has been fixed!
  • If anyone has a zodiac room that uses the old keys instead of Shatters to Explore let us know if it’s been fixed.
  • I don’t currently have any sign of a new contest.


  • One player reports that when you select a Boss Room when a battle finishes your clock to finish the room immediately. Previously you could open that window and select okay to accept your prize chest and explore the room. Has anyone else noticed this?

The Return of Keys for First Floor Zodiac Rooms

General Stuff

We have a lot of comments on the web pages and Facebook pages regarding the need for keys for rooms like the Hunting Room and Hallway during Zodiac Mode instead of Shatters of Zodiac.

Of course after a point these keys have no longer been needed by players and there is no way to get them. So if you don’t have them you’re stuck until you get a Phenomena.

Don’t Panic! Players that have submitted a ticket to GI have been told that it will be fixed in an upcoming release. Let’s hope that release is soon because it messed with many of us during the Halloween Event.

Mystery Manor iPad Update 3.2.0 Includes Halloween Event

Event , Full Moon , Update

Happy Halloween!

In Todays Update for Mystery Manor 3.2.0 we are promised:

  • Rudolf’s new hobby has left Mystery Manor unprotected during the Full Moon, but the younger generation is happy to help our: meet Van Helsing’s nephew.
  • Strange things are happening in the Manor prior to Halloween. Everyone is busy with all the preparations, so you’re the only one who can look into the unusual activity. This adventure promises to be special and… terrifying.
  • New sets of furniture will make the rooms even cozier.
  • Opening chests is now easier and more fun.

Of course the order of the Collections Table has changed and we now have 452 Collections. So, 12 New Collection’s. Perhaps we will discover what the 6 Collections are for that were added to the previous update. There are not any Collection items in these new ones that you can purchase with Coins or Diamonds but Fearless Warrior Cannot be placed on your gift list. It looks like it may be certificates that come from the Full Moon Quests. It uses the same chargers. The other 11 Collections all take the same charger and for now I’m going to put them as Halloween 2015 until we find the Room they belong to.

I do not currently have a new room, boss, or quest. I’m guessing we are going to do something with the chests we opened by sending to friends on previous events since it says they will be easier and more fun!

As usual, please let us know what you find new! I have added a page for Halloween 2015 to post information regarding the events. There is an existing page for the Full Moon Events which we can add the new Full Moon information on.

Mystery Manor iPad 3.1.1 Update


I have not even had time to play the game I’m so busy with Halloween Costume Making but I was notified there was an update today.

It says Improved Game Stability!

If anyone has noticed any benefits please let us know! Hopefully they returned some of the things they took away last time. I’m especially noticing the pain of not getting keys for visiting my friends anymore and it’s very discouraging. 😠

And if you go the the official Game Insight Facebook page there’s a post with a bonus buried for the game along with all their other games.

Mystery Manor iPad Update 3.0.1 – A Decrease in Rewards!

General Stuff

Yesterday, October 9, 2015 gave us Mystery Manor iPad Update 3.0.1.

The immediate thing to notice after getting past the huge change in the Guild Event was that there were 6 new Collections. I updated the Collections Table and see that the Treasury Collections that were at the top have been moved to the bottom. They are just before the Leprechaun Collections which for some odd reason GI chooses to leave as the very last ones. The 6 new Collections were placed at the top of the Collections List. This seems to be the pattern making it difficult to remember collection numbers.

We are now at 440 Collections. It would be nice if there was a Search Feature inside the game. Thank Goodness Ken made this list easy for me to update and upload to the web site.

I have not seen any sign of a Room or Boss to go with the new collections but am wondering if this is going to be one like uncovering the Island and Pirate Brig or not getting the Saloon Quests until the Wine Cellar Quests were completed. If anyone notices something these belong to please comment here.

Then as I had time to make my 51 Daily Visits to my Friends and collect the keys I get I noticed something else. I was using a Turtle like I always do and on the first friend I received 1 key. Previously when I visited friends I received Runestones and another room key such as a Battery, Container, Wine Goblet, Iron and Duck. The reward for visiting friends has taken a drastic decrease. On every Friend I only received 1 key. I was so startled I went back to my home manor and made sure the Turtle was actually running.

Then at the end of the night I went into the Mystic Arena. I have been trying to figure out the strategy this past week. Suddenly my character was jumping around on the list of my team. So, now it seems that you will move on the list based on how much Profit you have during the Battle. It does make it a little harder to keep track of where everyone is on the opposing team since they jump around but the one you were attacking or healing stays highlighted for you to continue with them.

Anyone else notice anything new with this update? Thanks for all your help and contacts.

Update 3.0.1 Returns Our Friends to Us!


After nearly 2 weeks of not being able to visit Friends GI has released version 3.0.1 with a statement that there are Game Stability Improvements.

The usual Friday bonus of a chest containing 5 diamonds for visiting Facebook arrived on time.

A Facebook Bonus of 20 Oil Cans, 50 Shatters of Zodiac, 5 Cowboy Lasso’s and 5 Cowboy Belt Buckles was the Reward for clicking on their link on their Facebook page today.

It is nice to see my helpers awake and tips in my manor rooms again. It will also be nice to visit other manor’s and have other monsters and snatchin’s available to banish. I heard that the Ear Twisting Snatchin cannot be found. If you have a way to get him to show up please share it here.

I have seen no other changes to the game. It is interesting how this miraculous ability to visit friends again has coincided with the new IOS 9 update.

It is also interesting that the daily number of visitors to this page dropped from about 2500 per day to 1500 per day. Perhaps a statement on how many players didn’t, or couldn’t, play during this time. I hope you are all up and running. I wonder how many will have quit completely.

Using Coins – Don’t Hate the Bankers!


I’m a Banker! Okay, take that frown off your face! When I first started to play this game I had a lot of Friends in the game tell me not to tip their rooms! They didn’t want coins. Eventually I just quit tipping everyone. I would only wake Sleepers. Then I accumulated Real Friends in the game and they would ask me for tips.

Using Coins to your advantage can help you level up and gain useful items!

Eventually I got really analytical in playing the game because everything took keys and it took Diamonds to buy keys! I will be honest with you, this game has frustrated me many times and twice I “quit”. I would come on every day and chat with the friends I had left. I deleted the hundreds that never talked to me because I wasn’t playing. I gave away my maximum chargers and collection items every day. I helped out whoever I could.

Then I heard the website and Facebook page were going to be shut down. Everyone was so disappointed. Up until then I really only copied quest strings into it and made the Collections Table. So I asked the owner that was shutting it down if I could take it over. She was kind enough to transfer it to me.

Now I had to think of a strategy to play this game. I have never spend a penny on it and I spend more time on this web page and chatting with my friends in this game than actually searching rooms. I find the searching tedious. I have bad vision. My method is to tap like crazy and use charms. So, now if I was going to keep playing I had to collect diamonds to buy things.

And I had to figure out how to make use of the millions of coins. After analyzing everything I figure out how to turn Coins into Diamonds.

So for all you players that think Banker tips are bad, I’m here to change your mind!
