    Are the October brilliant foundables going to be combat types like Oddities?

    The 5 portmanteaus task is ridiculous and unfair, and it doesn't make any sense bc the 5 portmanteaus will give you the 5 stickers of the same foundable as will do completing the special assignments, If I still have to unlock the portmanteaus, whats the point of giving the same reward with the assignment?

    I am on the bonus round. I have opened (unlocked) 4 portmanteau and nothing! I just inserted another key. And still nothing. How is this supposed to work?

    @coyotewoman42 Were the 4 you opened already unlocked (walked to completion) before you started the bonus tasks? You get credit for each portkey that changes status from unlocking (with the key in and distance left to walk) to unlocked (where you can click to open it). Any portkeys you had sitting in the vault already unlocked won't count for this type of task.

    @Attrition , I specifically held off using keys until that challenge. So they were unlocked and walked during the challenge. One was not a brilliant but the others were.

    Reaching 350 points 3 at a time is getting old. It makes me want to quit the game. I should not need to grind for an entire day just to complete the challenges. I haven’t been able complete the last three. Working people play too...

    @coyotewoman42 If you put the keys in after the task started then you should make a bug report. That is definitely not what should be happening.
