Elsa, thank you for responding to my problems with pretty much every King.com game I play, lol.
On Candy Crush Saga, yes, I was referring to the Dreamworld event and didn't realize that it had been discontinued. I will make the attempt to play by way of the Microsoft App for CC and see if I get to keep my current level and gain access to everything I currently cannot do.
Also, (since I haven't gone to the App store yet) will I be able to play CC Soda, Farm Heroes, Bubble Witch 2 Saga, Farm Heroes Super Saga and Alpha Betty through the same app, will I require an app for each game, or will I be able to only play some of those games and not others?
Just thought of this; will I need to somehow make all new friends, or will my friends list remain intact on the app?
