Mr Murphy - A few people have reported that problem - it appears to be a bug. I wish I had better advice, but seems like you will have to restart your game. You might want to contact customer support at the site you purchased it from regarding the issue.

Hi.. Please Help me..
I can't unlock maple syrup.. I've check Toronto hundreds of times but still its not being sold.. Is there an event that I need to trigger? Thanx so much..

Reply

I seem to be stuck on the "Cuban Retail" quest - I can't

access Xunatunich to get the Honduran Cacao. That port is not open for me.

I've visited every city a few times to see if there was some quest I needed to trigger, but everyone just tells me how wonderful I'm doing and giving me general advice. No word on anything else. A nudge in the right direction would be appreciated :)

I can't find the colombo cocoa to make strawberry infusion please help I can't move on the game

Reply

To Claireee:

Check around with the board members you know. Also check with the buildings at the ports.

To MetPink:

It might be Evangeline who triggers maple syrup. Try her and if it doesn't work, go back to the board members.

To Maeni:

You don't need anything in Xuntunich for the Cuban Retail quest. Specifically which part of the quest are you having trouble with?

To Mindy:

The only infusion that uses strawberry doesn't use Colombian cacao. Check your recipe again.

I've found the secret ingredients and opened many ports but I'm stuck because I can't achieve the last two awards (one of them is Rowena Baumeister Memorial Plate of Distinction...) and have just been satisfying all the orders. Someone please help!!

Reply

Two questions:

1) I have made at least 8 different chocolates... what else do I need to do achieve the "Rowena Baumeister Memorial Plate of Distinction"? Am I getting the meaning of 8 different chocolate products wrong???

2) I seem to have unlocked all the countries that I can see on the map, but I don't see some that were mentioned eg. Hong Kong...etc. does that mean there are more to be unlocked? or is it another version of the game?

Reply

Nancy - Actually I thought it was 10 different chocolates for the Rowena Baumeister Plate? Does it say 8?

As for the locations, Hong Kong definitely isn't in this game as far as I know. If you check out the event guide in the walkthrough section, it lists all the locations that open throughout the game.

Yes, it says 8 in your Walkthrough spoiler and also in my game too. Do I have to pass this award to move on in the game? As I seem to be quite stuck..

I have just tried making all the flavours of chocolate bar (total of 11) and having a lot of truffles, infusions in my inventory but I still can't seem to get that award... I must be not getting something...

I have gone through the game three times and still get stuck at Evangeline's quest. I have not been able to unlock the Honduran cacoa. I have been traveling for a year.

Thanks Pam, I have $150,000,000+ in cash and have the title Master Chocolatier. I have filled up all the spaces in my own recipes (though there were some ingredients that I didn't get but not all of them are mandatory, right?) I am not sure if I have finished the game yet.. as I have only been getting special orders. I have unlocked all the places that i can see on the map but there are some locations (eg. Faulkeland) where nothing much happens... and I see that there are two awards which I don't have, so I have been trying to get those..thinking that that is the next level up. Have I finished the game?

To Nancy:

Have you made the large chocolate orders to submit your application for Chocolatier? Have you found Sean?

If you haven't done these two things, you haven't finished the game yet.

Tell me what your last quest was. There's a button you can click on the quest screen that enables you to see completed quests. Tell me what the most recent two quests were.

I have gotten to Evangeline's quest. I must create 400 truffles, 100 of each kind. I have created 300 but i am unable to create the blended cocoa which requires Honduran cocoa. I have traveled for a year and spoken to everyone without no progress. I have gone through the game three times and have only receied special requests. I am going to try to go thru the game again to see if I have missed something but I doubt that I did. I have also made everything in the recipe book to see if I could trigger another space for the secret lab. If you could give me some pointers I would appreciate it very much.

Reply

To Mimi Love:

There's no need to restart the game. Look at the quest for 400 truffles again very carefully. It calls for a Blended Varietal Cacao Pumpkin Truffles, which do not use Honduran Cacao. The names of the truffles are very similar, but one uses Honduran Cacao and the other doesn't. Just make the correct truffles and you'll be good to go! :)

Check all around Tokyo for infusion recipes. And go back to the board member who is there.

To kforshaz:

Ingredients and inventory will expire if they sit for too long. There are a couple of strategies that may help -

Reconfigure your machines to make specifically the truffles you need. This way, you can have them all producing at the same time. Another strategy is to produce substantially more than the required amount to all for the deterioration of the product.

Another way to keep from losing inventory:

If you sell one of the item every 30 weeks this will refresh your product and make it good for another 30 weeks

This method may work a little better for you.

Also you can do something similar to keep from losing ingredients:

If you buy one of the ingredient that you are "storing" every 30 weeks that will refresh them and make them good for another 30 weeks

Pam/Eileen, I just went over the event guide again and noticed something I missed last time I read it. It seems the lady from the Tokyo Tower was supposed to give me the recipe for strawberry anise infusions and milk chocolate w/ blueberry infusions after delivering 45 cases of chocolate rasberry bars and 45 cases of cinnamon coffee. I delivered all 90 cases a while back, but I just noticed that she didnt give me the recipe for strawberry anise infusions; she gave me the milk chocolate w/ blueberry infusions recipe nonetheless. This is apparently a problem because Evangeline's encounter would take me to Pedro in Bogota and then, he would ask me for 12 Strawberry Anise Infusions, and 12 Orange Stars to take to Susana in Bogota..... but I dont have the recipe for the Strawberry Anise infusions. I think that's the problem. Is there a solutions to this?

I've tried that too, Pam. I went to Secret Test Kitchen, in Reykjavik, but nothing to do. Teddy Baumeister said that I don't have currently any slots available in my recipe book for my own recipes although I've bought some ingredients that I can found. Is there something I should do?

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this game!!!

I played the first version some time ago, then played the free demo when version 3 came out. Just bought it, and have played for hours over the last few days. This is a great site, did not need to come here until I got stuck and could not locate the dates. You have done a great job, and I will be back for more help in other games.

I am nearly at the end, just need to get the last main quest then unlock the Honduran cocoa, or was it coffee? I have just those last few recipes that use it to complete. I have really enjoyed making up my own recipes, and after creating the first few discovered I could design the confection, colors and all. That made it even more fun. I am ready to start experimenting in my own kitchen as this game has definitely got me craving some decadent chocolates.

What a clever, entertaining and beautifully made game! I would love to be a tester for them should they go on with a part 4. Or for whoever reads these forums, may I suggest something similar that would involve making desserts or liqueurs? The guys have plenty of games tailored for them; I think game developers need to create more games like this that will appeal to us women. Thanks!

The prices for the chocolates fluctuate according to the market. And yes, new creations to sell for more at first. The best way to continue getting good prices is to only sell your chocolates to the shops you own. They give you the best prices overall.

Jasonred79 January 29, 2010 5:13 AM

The "design own recipe" is messed up, in terms of what makes gameplay easier for you!

The reason? Many times during the game, the board or whoever will ask for some of your creations... for FREE. Or for some fixed price.

Therefore, if you chose a lot of expensive ingredients, you're SUNK. Or not really, but it is PAINFUL to hand over 6x200 crates of Truffles that would normally sell for $30,000 each for FREE. (or for 10 million + an award) not to mention how much the ingredients would cost.

Instead, I found that the easiest (and most boring) way to win the game is to make PURE SUGAR. Truffles with 6 sugar in them sell for very little, but they cost even less to manufacture.

Those special orders are IMPORTANT. They give the best returns for your money.

Buy the Corporate Plane as soon as possible! It guarantees you to win the game. ... Actually, the only real obstacle in this game is actually MONEY. There are only 3 ways to lose money outside your control.
1. Travelling
2. Ingredients disappearing
3. Your chocolates sell for less then manufacturing cost. This happens when your stuff is too old or your designs suck.
You can also be forced to spend money on stuff by the game, but it's almost always a "do you want to do this" choice, so you can come back and do it later once you are richer.

Reply

I've encountered a weird problem. In the late phase of the game when was asked to deliver one of my creations to Baghdad. One of the ingredients is Colombian coffee.

Jasonred79 February 5, 2010 1:49 PM

loriet,

Make 120 of each type of truffle. Then sell 1 of each truffle each month. This should stop your chocolates from degrading. I think.

OR... what you can do (I think) is switch your machine so it rotates between each type of truffle every 2 weeks. So 2 weeks on each truffle, then switch.

Or if you have a LOT of money, upgrade your other factories so they can produce truffles too.
