This game is not only frustrating, it also rips you off because it doesn't always give you your points. It doesn't seem to know when a month has less than 31 days, there for you never get all your points. They don't hesitate to charge you 200 points to make up a puzzle you may have missed, or 60 points for a letter. Disappointing to me.

Too many glitches

Don't waste your time...the game rarely loads. I have been trying to get the game to load for over 20 minutes. Not good, very annoying.
