Hey, I hope you don't quit playing! Please look back at my post (Problem with lives) and read my more detailed qustion and the replies!
I found HELP in the game (just click on the Cog symbol in the bottom left corner of the screen, then click on the question mark). I then searched the word "lives", but you had more questions. If you still have questions, let me know, and I'll try to help! I'm just another player, but I might be able to help you. It took me DAYS to find where I posted my original question! This COMMUNITY is confusing!
