    EarthboundXWell I suck at this game, haha. So it was hard enough to do a single puzzle. Also going from needing 2500 or so points for gold to 17,000 is a pretty big difference.

    Even expert puzzles only gave you around 300 points. That's gotta be 10s of hours extra at least, if not more.

    FlabyoI guess, if you're trying to blast through it all in a few sittings by messing with the clock. But if you're taking it daily as they (kind of) intend it's something to do over your morning coffee each day that'll eventually get you the points.

    Fir3Blad316My game deleted the saves. In game is everything gone, i wonder now if the 4 Gold badges I had still count for the achievements

    Mike LangloisWhenever I complete one challenge in the past it then says its been unable to connect to challenges and wont let me do any more?

    Danny BizzI have the same problem as Mike Langlois (on iOS). It’s extremely tedious to change the dates for one challenge, close the game, reset to current time, open the game, change the date to an older date, complete the challenge then rinse repeat.

    Anyone encounter this and find a solution. It seems to be that my phone disconnects entirely from the internet when I am not using the current date / time.

    YAY ITS BOSSMike & Danny, I am having same problem :/

    TerreThedark01I would suggest to anybody trying the "change date" method, as it appeared when I tried to do it like this, I lost all my progress. And, even worse, do not play on 4G because you can encounter the same issue. So keep playing with the same wi-fi connection and do all your daily challenges, it is the safest (longest also) solution I can provide...

    xCENAxMODCan you go back in time to before November 2018 to get the gold medals when they required less points?

    EarthboundXPretty sure that's how I did it.
