18th August - Meerca Day
- We have added more trophies to the User Lookup page now. So, if you have been
playing for 17 months, it will actually say 17 months.
- We have started to refund people for their Theme Parks. Since there are so many
of them, this may take a while, but we will notify you when they are completed. We
will also be giving a Gold, Silver or Bronze trophy to those players that had the largest
parks (check your user lookup to see if you got one!)
UPDATE : Its going very slow - it should be complete within about 2 days :(
- MARAQUA HAS BEEN DESTROYED - We bring you this breaking news only one day after the mysterious

as the majority of people guessed!
- GREAT NEW FEATURE - We are now counting the number of times you come first in a variety of our games.
If you win Mystery Pic twice you will be a 2x Champion instead of just a champion. The games that
keep track of wins so far are Mystery Pic, Lenny Conundrum and Better Than You.

much faster :)

Art Gallery? We have added some more fan art including this cool Gelert and Shadow Usul :)

on your parks to you over the next day or so.

it should be completed soon.

and therefore rare :)
- The Brain Tree has just arrived in the
but you must complete his quest before you can fight him!
- This week's Lenny Conundrum has just
been launched. The answer to last week's puzzle was '32 Pyramids'. (10*10*10*pi*4/3)/(6*8*8/3) = 32
