I’m missing points for #43. Reading to 3 plus kids in a library. Page 9 on entry thread. #54. You at a payphone. Also page 9 but separate post from #43.were they just overlooked or was there something wrong with the pictures? Thanks!

Thanks. Figured it was worth trying by submitting it. But yeah, I get it, it's not fair to those who actually built theirs. I'm going to fight them again later. :)

I feel your pain... I swear I almost lost my salvation taking that pic, especially with my kids running around me. If it helps, I had to combine tips from a few different youtube videos to finally get my house - and just barely. I used a towel to serve as a grip base for the bottom, and then I used a T-shaped base another video recommended, and then I built as big a base as possible so that it would still stand even if a few cards fell... which they inevitably did. The big base also allowed me to make the next stories slightly smaller, which seemed to help. And used cards help. Whoever used their uno cards or phase 10 is genius. I should have thought of that. And to those who built the symmetrical triangle looking ones... I don't even know how they did that... I couldn't get a first row standing, let alone a second story. My house was ugly, but it stood. :)

Wiring all of the lights
(Electrical contracting)
Wrapping up packages and writing out cards

Thanks, got your store display taken care and removed the points that were inadvertently marked off.

Not to sound nitpicky, but a.) The dog sombrero was made out of straw like a real sombrero, whereas yours were paper, and b.) I have absolutely no chance of winning any of the cash prizes so the point I received is moot anyways.

In fact, after tomorrow, I'm quitting hunting. I have one place in my tiny little area of PA to check yet for a few of the antique-type items and even if I find them and sort of catch up to you 3, it won't matter since it goes by when the points were posted and you all are way ahead of me.

I can say right off the bat that I'm not getting the conga line, bowling, reading to 3 kids in a library and identical twins since all of my friends backed out of those 4 because they didn't want their pictures taken, so I will never ever catch up. Hence why I'm throwing in the towel.

I do have a few more pics to post, but seeing how you are all 20 points ahead of me, it's all just for fun now.

"I swear I almost lost my salvation" :lol: :lol: This cracked me up so much! I say something along those lines too when I'm feeling tested :P

Agreed with everything you said. The towel as a grip base was genius (I wish I had thought of that), and a large first level to make a strong base. Make the next levels slightly smaller each time. Fifth level is the easiest because you just need two cards together.
The best I can give you is a fake smile and dead eyes.

It’s one thing not to want something; it’s another to be told you can’t have it.

Lol no it's all good with the dog hat... believe me I looked for it! No worries!!

I tried the towel trick also, but it didn't work for me either. Those phase 10 cards were my Salvation because I tried at least 50 times with regular cards.

I feel your pain on this one! Spent hours trying to make a house with triangles (got to 3 levels and rejoiced before giving up on going higher) Then looked online for tips and found the towel and octagonal shape ideas. Finally got it but it took a few days... and I had a toddler running around me :lol: :lol:

2 questions:
1- I see someone got a point for the zack morris phone, I wanted to take a look to see what was accepted, but I cannot find it? Can someone point me to the page it is on?? Thanks!

2- So can we just create the GO board game? That would make this much easier!
