Coin Fountain

Make a wish for more land with this lucky fountain.
I guess it will good for people with lots of extra energy and not enough coins???

Zynga wants to know what you think about the fountain.
Leave your feedback in this thread of their official forums.

Requirements to build:

You can throw in 2 energy every 10 seconds and get an experience point or 2 and some coins.
(The lowest I've gotten is 51 coins and the highest so far is around 1563)

UPDATE: I got asked to place and build a second coin fountain.  

Now there is three of them :/

Zynga has just added the ability to sell the fountain(s)

I heard that the fountain costs have been changed to 2 energy for everyone
so this chart isn't that helpful anymore...

Split Times Find Everythings

Split Times are my least favorite type of scenes.

We are first introduced to them in the Midwest Kitchen, where we must  they find 5 differences in two panels of a similar scene.  The areas to check are highlighted in red. Try to scan over both panels to find items missing. You'll get used to scanning as we need to play these scenes a lot more then regular scenes for 5 trophies, due to the fact that the scores aren't as high because the bonus multiplier can't reach as high as it can for the regular manor scenes.

These are currently 4 of them in the game at the moment:

 Midwest Kitchen:

Wedding Gifts:

Counterfeit Kiln:

Santorini Balcony:

New Title Bar

Looks like there was an update to the Graphical User Interface in HC along the top bar of the game.  Changing the icons and adding a fake wood background.

 Hopefully that means the envelope problems have been fixed and we can expect so new scenes and land coming SOON!

Also you might have noticed the size of the font for finding items when opening the packages is huge.

Here is an example:

Super Clues
