  1. I was excited about this, but looks like they didn’t provide any way to register without a Facebook account. 🙁 AMOE is only good for 1 entry out of 27.

  2. Question.
    Level 1 Ernie Item Locations above shows 21 items/clues.
    I found 20/20 clues (required on the site) and the Squirrely Text cell phone.
    But, What is the yellow dot on the screen? Is the ST cell phone or “•SD couch on floor by couch” ?

  3. Melanie D says:

    I can not find the SD Card anywhere. anyone know where it is? I found 20/20. I assume it’s not in that group of items, anyone know?

  4. Jamie S. says:

    yea I have tried everything on the couch near the couch and cant find the SD card

  5. Brian Saulmon says:

    After you find the 20/20 items go back to the cell phone/sd card on the table at the sofa and complete the squirrel text again even if you already have earlier. It took me a while to figure it out. Hope this helps.

  6. mebisping says:

    The yellow dot is the cell phone. It doesn’t go away when you find it. The SD card isn’t in this chapter, probably won’t be found until chapter 7 or 8.

  7. kepstercowboys says:

    Click on your name top right and fill out your information “update profile”

  8. Mindi Eden says:

    For some reason I can’t get it to click on the spice rack. No hand shows & when I click nothing is added. Found everything else….Any suggestions?

  9. Melanie D says:

    Has anyone found the puzzle game? I read in the rules that it’s not required for entry but seems odd that I haven’t found it with all the clicking I’ve done. I am very confused with this game.

  10. Stephanie Mitchell says:

    I clicked on all the clues on the list, then some. It shows I have 18 of 20. I see no sd card on the floor anywhere.

  11. Marci Palumbo says:

    spice rack doesn’t work now. Really frustrating game. Guess they don’t really want a winner grrrr

  12. Stephanie Mitchell says:

    I got the last one and am on the second one in the park. Found most on my own since there are no clues here. Guess I would have had to upgrade to get them early. The game is hidden in the pictures.

  13. Can’t find picture #10

  14. Donna Smith says:

    Picture 10 is hidden in the Umbrella of the hot dog stand. : )

  15. carla9359 says:

    Well I had all but #6. Not sure where exactly I found all of the others though as I just kept clicking. Not sure I like this game too well.

  16. Can’t find the last please ?

    • Butterwin says:

      I’m stuck on the last one too. Are you referring to Level 2? Maybe we can help each other out. My computer doesn’t load the game so well. These are all the ones I’ve clicked so far (center to left): photos near football, football, duffel bag, collapsed fence, women doing yoga, swing seat, painting/canvas, barbecue pit, underwear hanging from branch, tree trunk opening, eagle; on the right side: dark grass near water fountain, water fountain, burnt bench, walking pavement, hot dog cart and drinking water fountain. PLEASE let me know what I’m missing. Thank you.

      • Onyinye Elochukwu says:

        I just found the last clue after a couple days of searching. It’s the two smaller clouds by the left of the fountain. Whew!!!

  17. Ray Saunders says:

    Where is picture #3?

  18. jeffery joyner says:

    Picture 3 is in the umbrella lining, hot dog cart.

  19. I think the organ is impossible!

  20. CJ Queen says:

    How do you play the organ double note — I hold down two on my touch screen, but doesn’t work… Help.

  21. I agree the organ is tough. I am pressing the correct keys but it’s a no go. I’m at 19 clues. I’m looking for the last one. The navigation doesn’t really help.

  22. I need help with the 20th clue. The scanner shows upper left with two dots. I clicked and found the moon and upper left light but it still shows that location

    • Onyinye Elochukwu says:

      Guys, the last clue is the pistachio bag far right where you have scattered pistachio shells.

  23. The Truth says:

    From a technical perspective – Internet Exporer 11 worked well, but Google Chrome did not. Don’t have any other programs running or tabs open when you play. The circle around the radar should slowly light up as you get near a clickable object. That helps big time! Feel free to ask any questions. Good luck!

  24. Sandra Hajek says:

    I found 20 of 20 in the baseball park but can’t find the “new game” and not really sure what it is I’m looking for when they say, “new game”. Wth? It’s giving me a clue as to where it is, but I see nothing and clicked everywhere.
