The Secret Society: A Beginner’s Guide

The Secret Society: Hidden Mystery is a very simple hidden object game. You need to find a list of objects in the image within a certain period of time. However, the addition of a complex storyline, various graphics modes, mini-games, quests and social interaction with other players makes the game much more exciting and challenging than just finding objects.

You play as an unidentified recruit of the mysterious Order of the Explorer. These are people with the unique ability to navigate worlds using photographs. Your uncle Richard, an elite member of the Order of Explorers, has gone missing. You have to find out what happened to him and save the Order. You do this by following his footsteps and searching the places where he has been. By bringing together Richard’s old photographs, you open up new worlds to explore, new games, and new objects to find. All the information you collect while trying to solve the mystery of your uncle’s disappearance is stored in your Diary.

Home desktop

When you enter the game, you are confronted with your home desktop. Here you can view the progress of the game, select pictures or puzzles, see your active quests, view your inventory, visit the store, read the Diary, enter the collections section, look at the current reward goals and enter the friends section.

Desktop Sections:

  1. Player Name (# 1 in the picture above) - You choose this name when you first start the game. It is recommended that you choose a unique name so that your friends in the game can easily identify you. You can change the name at any time by clicking on the current name, but each change costs crystals.
  2. Avatar (# 2) - Appears next to your name in all parts of the game’s social interaction. You can change your avatar by clicking on it next to your name. You can use your Facebook profile photo as an avatar if you link your account to the messenger.
  3. Current experience points (no. 3) - you get experience for all actions in the game. Next to your current experience points is the number of experience points you need to reach the next level. As you gain new experience points, the blue scale will gradually fill up.
  4. Current level (# 4) - you level up by earning experience points for successfully exploring pictures, winning games, completing assignments or visiting your friends. As you progress, you will unlock new game mechanics and modes.
  5. Current and maximum energy (No. 5) - some activities require energy to complete, each mode consumes a different amount of energy.
  6. Energy Restoration (No. 6) - The clock under your energy points shows how much time is left until a new energy point is restored. Once you reach your maximum, the clock will stop.

Game currency

Coins (No. 7 in the first picture). You can earn coins by successfully exploring the main modes and puzzles that reward a certain amount of coins for successfully completing them. This number increases as the level of modes increases. You can also increase the number of coins won by using Talismans, hiring friends with the Merchant profession before starting the walkthrough. You can also earn coins by combining collections and collecting rewards after visiting friends.

Coins are needed to unlock new pictures and puzzles as soon as you unlock them by completing the puzzle. Some pictures require up to 100,000 coins to open. When you click "open" on the new picture, for which you have collected all the fragments, you find yourself in a mini - game in the form of a puzzle. If you do not complete the puzzle within the allotted time, you will not open the picture. To try to open the picture a second time, you will again need to spend coins.

If you are just starting to play the game, do not waste coins until you have unlocked all the pictures and puzzles. Even when you have opened all the pictures and puzzles, keep a supply of coins so that you can unlock new pictures added in updates.

Coins can also be used to purchase certain items, such as tools in a shop. You can buy additional coins from the bank by clicking the green "+" next to your current coin (or crystal) value with real money.

Crystals (No. 8 in the first picture). You earn 1 crystal for each new level. You can also earn some crystals by completing certain quests at the start of the game (for example, by going to the G5 Twitter page). You can also buy additional crystals from the bank for real money.

Crystals are used to unlock pictures and puzzles before you have all the pieces. Crystals can also be used to purchase most of the items available in the store, including food items that restore energy. Crystals can also be used to unlock new items to gift them.

How do I play The Secret Society?

Once you’re ready to start the game, simply click the picture or puzzle icon on your home desktop to open the game exploration window. Normal pictures (# 1 in the image above) have no additional complications and are easy to walk through. The green banner above the picture is its title. The color around the frame shows which level you are in this scene. The rectangle in the upper left corner indicates what mode it is currently in (what type of game will be launched when you click on "exploration").

When you open the picture exploration window, you will see all the information about the reproduction of this scene. The field in the upper left corner of the window shows the number of experience points and coins that will be won if you successfully complete the stage. In the anomaly example (image below), the first number indicates coins that can be earned in the usual way. The second numbers after the "+" show the increase in coins and experience points gained when using talismans, hiring friends or visiting friends.

There is a field under the coins, which shows the required amount of energy. The photo on the right shows the picture that you will reproduce. A paper attached to the image with a paper clip indicates which mode the image is in at the moment (for example, the Throne Room), the second note (in the example, "abc") means that the game will be in text mode. If a friend has loaded an image, in the upper right corner of the photo there will be a symbol of a mysterious person with a profession icon (for example, an investigator loaded a painting). The box below shows the current level of the passage. Green indicator - how many percent the image was examined. For example, a player has completed 20% of the research at the "Pro" level.

The picture above shows a list of items that you can find in the scene if you complete it successfully. This list contains collection items and items to combine collections. Each picture has its own set of items (some items can only be obtained in certain modes). If you are looking for a specific item but it is not listed in the "to be found" list, you may need to explore the image in a different mode or explore a different painting.

Pictures with anomalies (No. 2 in the first image of the article section). When you open the exploration window for an image with an anomaly, a "banish" button appears instead of a scene progress bar. Pressing this button removes the anomaly if you have the correct exorcism tool (in which case you will need a Hand Fan to exorcise the Lost Time anomaly). If you do not have a suitable tool, then you will be offered the option of buying it for crystals or examining an image with an anomaly present. Banishing Anomaly gives you a list of rewards from the "to be found" list, whether you choose to reproduce the image after the banishment or not.

Once you banish an anomaly from a picture, the next game mode in that picture is always text.

Each anomaly creates a new game mode. Playing with an anomaly costs more energy points than normal research, but the list of items that can be found grows and includes items that can only be won by researching pictures with anomalies.

Once you successfully investigate an image with an anomaly, the next game mode (after text) in this image will always be curse mode. This is the only way to make curse mode appear in the picture.

Puzzles (# 3 in the home desktop picture above). This example shows the "Pipes" mode. Clicking the puzzle icon on the desktop will bring up an exploration window, similar to the photo window. By clicking on the "explore" button, you will start a mini - game.

Locked and unlocked pictures (# 4 in the home desktop picture above). The example shows an unlocked, but not yet open, photo. When you first start the game, the only scene that is available to you is Venice. As you level up the game, you will unlock more and more pictures and puzzles. Photos with a lock will still have to be unlocked. Clicking on the picture will bring up a window telling you which level you must be in to unlock the picture.

Once you’re at the correct level, the closed castle symbol will turn into an open castle and a new quest will appear on your quest list on the left side of your screen, telling you how to find the four missing pieces of the new image. In order to open a new picture, you need to complete the task. After obtaining all the pieces, you can open the photo by playing a mini-game. But you can skip the task with collecting fragments by paying a certain amount of crystals. If you are missing one piece of the picture, as in the Illusionist’s Room above, then instantly opening the picture will cost 55 crystals, but if the player lacks all four pieces of the picture, then unlocking the picture will cost 220 crystals.

Quests (# 5 in the desktop picture above, and # 6 is a new task). A list of active jobs is displayed on the left side of the desktop. New tasks are marked with an exclamation mark until you open them and read the instructions. Quests with multiple parts will also move to the top of your list. When you open a quest with multiple parts that jumped to the top of your quest list, the part of the quest you have already completed will have a green checkmark next to it.

After opening the task window, you will see a dialogue explaining the quest and an image of the person who gave you the task. Below the dialog is a symbol representing a task. In the example above, the task is to examine two pictures, so the description shows 2 pictures. If the task is to find a specific item, the image of that item will be under the dialogue.

There is another sentence below the quest explaining what you must do to complete the quest. Please read this sentence carefully as it may refer to a specific picture mode as well as a picture for research.

Active Mascots (# 7 in the desktop picture above). To help you explore the modes, you can activate Talismans or Artifacts from your inventory. Active items are displayed on the right side of the screen. A timer is shown next to it, which shows the time given to use the Talisman.

Tabletop rewards (# 8 in the Home Desktop picture above). You receive these rewards for certain in-game achievements. Most of the tabletop rewards have 10 levels. The appearance of the reward changes depending on what level you have reached. At the time of this writing, the Friendliness Reward has 8 levels, and the Orb of Wonders and the Pyramid of Wonders do not have additional levels.

Other sections of the game

Besides pictures and puzzles, you can also access other areas of the game. At the bottom of the desktop there are 6 tabs that open additional game sections:

  1. Inventory (# 1 in the picture above) - Contains all the items you won, including Talismans, Energy (food items that restore energy or weights that restore strength), Tools, Chests and various items.
  2. Shop (No. 2 in the picture above) - here you can buy any items that are in the game for coins or crystals. Additional high-level versions of certain items, such as Talismans and Chests, which cannot be won in the game, can also be purchased from the store.
  3. Diary (number 3 in the picture above) - as you progress, you will open the pages of your diary. Opening the diary allows you to re-read all the pages. The order of the pages depends on the order in which you complete certain tasks.
  4. Collections (# 4 in the picture above) - here you can combine Collections and artifacts, and also manage your wishlist.
  5. Rewards (# 5 in the picture above) - opens the list of rewards that can be obtained in the game. This includes tabletop rewards and all other prizes that can be achieved. Clicking on the reward icon will bring up its description.
  6. Friends (# 5 in the picture above) - here you can manage your current friends list: send gifts, make visits and hire your current friends, and much more. The exclamation mark will bounce above the Friends icon on your desktop if you have a new friend request, or if someone you invited as a friend accepted your invitation and was added to your friends list.

The Secret Society Walkthrough

Passing the game means completing tasks in different game modes, which, in fact, create additional difficulties in finding hidden objects within the same picture. The modes in the pictures appear in a chaotic order. You must keep playing the image until the mode you want appears. The only exceptions to this rule are Curse Mode and Text Mode, which can be triggered depending on how you interact with the anomaly in the picture.

Each mode has its own unique symbol, which is displayed in the upper left corner of the photo on the desktop. If a friend has loaded a picture, then you will see a special symbol on it and the friend’s profession. Once you have found the picture in the desired mode, you simply need to press the green research button to start the game.

Text Mode is the most basic hidden object game. In text mode, you are given the names of the objects that you want to find in the picture. 6 titles are displayed at the same time (located at the bottom of the image). When you find the item you want, a line goes through the word, and it is replaced with the name of the new item you want to find. And so on until you find all the necessary items.

For early levels of the image, you may only need to find a few objects. As the level of photography increases, the number of items searched for increases. In Text mode, you have 3 minutes to search.

Text mode and anomalies. Text mode is normal mode, which means it will randomly appear in pictures as you explore them. However, under certain circumstances, you can "force" text mode on. When an anomaly appears in a picture, after its removal, the next mode in this picture is always text (unless the second anomaly appears in this picture before playback). To exorcise an anomaly, click Exile in the description window (if you have the correct exorcism tool). If you do not have a suitable tool to remove the anomaly from the picture, you will be offered to buy the tool using crystals, or you can choose to reproduce the picture with the anomaly.

Silhouettes Mode. Here you will be shown the silhouettes of the objects that you should find in the picture. 5 objects are displayed in the picture at the same time (located at the base of the picture). When you find each object in the picture, it moves to join its silhouette, and both disappear from the list. Silhouettes of new objects appear until you find all the required number of objects for this level of the image. You are given 3 minutes to find all the items you are looking for.

Night mode - you are given the object words that you need to find in the picture. However, in night mode, you can only see a small part of the image and the rest is darkened. On the screen, you can see a small circle of light that illuminates the picture, it can be moved around the field. You get 5 minutes to find all the necessary items.

Pairs Mode - you have to look for matching pairs of objects in the picture. Pair objects are the same objects as in Text, Silhouette and Night modes. The phrase "remaining pairs: (number)" appears on the brown banner at the bottom of the figure. When you find each pair, the remaining number decreases by 1. To win, you need to find up to 15 pairs, and you are given 5 minutes to do this.


Parts mode - you have to search for different parts of the same object. Each item is split into 5 pieces and images of all 5 pieces of that item are shown together on a brown banner at the bottom of the drawing. When you find a piece, it will start moving towards its image, then both will disappear from the list. When you find the fifth (the last piece of the item), the images of the next set of 5 pieces will appear in the list. Each image has 6 set objects, divided into 5 parts. These are not the same objects found in Text, Silhouette and Night modes. You are given 5 minutes to search.

Morph Mode - You should look for objects that change shape periodically. These elements usually differ from objects in Text, Silhouette and Night modes, although some of them may temporarily take the form of one of the normal objects. The phrase "morphs remaining: (number)" appears on the brown banner at the bottom of the figure. As you find each morph, the remaining number decreases by 1 until you find the last morph. In total, the photo can contain up to 10 search objects. You have 5 minutes to search.

Curse Mode - similar to Text Mode, except that the letters in the words of the object list to find are jumbled (anagrams). You have to figure out which objects the mixed letters belong to in order to find the correct object. You are given 3 minutes to find all the items you need.

On the Collections tab of the Collections section, if Curse Mode is required to find an item, the instructions say "Examine photos in Anagram Mode to find the item."

Curse and Anomaly Mode. Curse Mode is unique in that it does not appear on the normal mode change in pictures as you explore. The only way to make curse mode appear in a picture is to examine a photo that has an anomaly without removing the anomaly. Anomalies appear in Text Mode. The next mode that appears in the picture after you finish playing it with the anomaly will always be Curse mode (unless another anomaly appears in the picture).

While the Ghost Mirror has a similar effect on the wordlist (in this case, changing the order of the letters in the name of each item), it does not count as curse mode for quests. Only images with the "Cba" symbol are considered to have curse mode.

How do I change the picture mode? To change the mode, you need to explore the picture in the current mode. Otherwise, the mode will not change. If you have a picture with an anomaly, you can return it to Text Mode by exorcising the anomaly with the exile element instead of research.

How to get an anomaly in a certain picture? Anomalies can only appear on images that are currently in Text Mode. Usually, you need to examine other pictures in order to cause any new anomalies. If you stop playing pictures or just play puzzles, no new anomalies will appear on your home desktop. If you are having trouble getting anomalies on a particular image, you can try banishing all anomalies and getting all your other images out of text mode.

The Secret Society: Walkthrough Mini Games

Besides the usual hidden object games, there are a number of mini-games. Puzzles are unlocked as you progress through the game levels. To open an unlocked puzzle, the player must complete a quest to find puzzle pieces, usually obtained as a reward for researching a photo.

It takes energy to solve puzzles (like pictures). As the level of the puzzle scene increases, the amount of energy required for each game also increases. Each puzzle has its own set of collectibles and items. Some tasks require completing puzzles rather than images. Each puzzle allows you to use 2 common game tools. However, the function of the instrument may differ from its function when examining images.


Blocks become available at player level 2. Blocks is a deceptively simple mini-game where the goal is to solve a puzzle by moving a yellow block from one area of ??the board to another in a given amount of time. The yellow target block can only move left or right.

In addition to the yellow target block, there are two more block types in the puzzle area. Vertical brown blocks can only be moved up or down, while horizontal brown blocks can only be moved left or right. To move the yellow target block out of the puzzle area, players must first clear the path by rearranging the blocks.




Pipes become available at player level 3. The goal of the game is to create a continuous chain over a period of time.

The playing field is divided into separate blocks that can be completely rotated. Each block contains a length of pipe with 2, 3 or 4 open ends. You must rotate all slots until all open ends meet, creating a continuous chain across the playing field.




The puzzle becomes available at player level 6. You must reveal all matching pairs within a specified time frame. At higher levels, more and more cards appear on the playing field. The board contains a grid of inverted cards. Clicking on the map opens the image. Once the card is turned over, it remains open until 2 cards are selected. If 2 cards show the same image, both pieces are removed from the board. If the 2nd card shows a different image, then they are turned face down again. The game is won when all cards are removed from the playing field.




Gems are available at player level 9. But by paying for early access with crystals, you can start playing the puzzle from level 7. You must collect 3 or more of the same colored gems to remove them from the field. As stones are removed, stones above them fall to fill the empty space, and new stones are added from the top of the board. Stones can be replaced by any adjacent stone, but only if this creates a horizontal or vertical line of 3 or more stones of the same color. The object of the game is to remove all the yellow-bordered squares.

A progress bar at the bottom of the board shows what percentage of the yellow-bordered squares have been removed. When the indicator fills up and there are no yellow-bordered squares, you win. The only way to lose a stage is to miss the target time. If at any point in the game there are no connections available on the board, all stones on the board will be shuffled.

There are 4 types of squares in the puzzle. They appear on the board as the level of the mini-game increases:

  1. Yellow Bordered Squares (# 1 in the picture above) - The object of the game is to remove these stones by creating a chain where 1 stone is on the yellow border square. All other moves made in the game are not counted (but can be useful when setting up chains).
  2. Squares with double yellow borders (# 2) - must be removed from the playing field. The second yellow border is at an angle to the first, so it looks like a diamond above the square. Completing one chain on a square of this type will remove the stone, after which the cell will take on the normal form of a square with yellow borders. By creating a second connection to the cage, you will remove it from the field.
  3. Diamonds (No. 3) - no other stone can enter into union with it. You can only delete them by creating a chain nearby.
  4. Locked Gems (# 4) - Gems with locks on them cannot be moved (replaced by adjacent gems). They also cannot fall to fill the space below them like other stones. This lock must be removed. Make a pool, including a locked gem. After that, the castle will disappear, and you can interact with the square as usual.

Some stones with a lock do not have to be opened if they do not have yellow borders, and if they do not interfere with the passage of the stage.

Types of gemstones

Common stones (matching 3 or more of these types of gems in horizontal or vertical lines will remove them from the game):

  1. Orange square.
  2. Yellow diamond.
  3. Blue triangle.
  4. Turquoise oval.
  5. Green sphere.
  6. Purple pentagons.

Vertical striped gems (matching 4 gems of the same color in a horizontal line will create this type of stone, # 5 in the picture above). The main color and shape of the vertical striped stone will be the same color and shape as the stones selected to create it. Making a match with this stone will cause all stones in the column it is in to be removed. All squares with 1 yellow frame will be removed, and 1 frame will be removed from the squares with a double yellow frame, all locks will be removed. If this column contains another special stone (striped, bomb, multi-colored), it will be activated. The horizontal striped gems (# 6 in the picture above) work in a similar way.

Bomb (# 7) - by matching 5 gems in the shape of the letter "T" or "L", you will create a bomb of the same color. Creating a chain with a bomb will cause it to explode, removing all adjacent stones from the board. The bomb will survive the explosion and fall into the space created by the removed stones and explode 2 times, removing itself and all adjacent stones. The action of the bomb is similar to striped stones.

Multicolored Gems (# 8) - Matching 5 or more gems of the same color in a horizontal or vertical line will create a multicolored gem. Replacing such a stone with any other will remove all gems of the same color from the board. Actions with stones are similar to striped types of stones.

Special gems created by chains (striped, bomb, rainbow) can be substituted for each other regardless of their color. To swap two special stones, they do not have to be the same color. By doing this, a series of special moves can be created that will remove a large number of stones from the board.

Replacing a striped stone (of any color) with another striped stone will remove both of them and lines (vertical, horizontal) depending on the type of striped stone). Swapping two bombs of any color will cause a much larger explosion than launching 1 bomb.

Replacing the bomb with a striped rock will trigger a super striped rock reaction (image above). This will remove 3 rows and 3 columns of stones. Replacing a vertical (horizontal) striped stone with a multi-colored one will turn all the gems on the board that are the same color as the striped stones into striped gems. Swapping 2 different colored stones will remove all stones from the board. Then the board will be filled with new stones.



  1. Play from top to bottom - the stones move from top to bottom, and multiple moves can cause multiple collapses at the same time, thereby clearing more squares below.
  2. Use special techniques. Gems is a relatively easy game to play if you take advantage of special moves. Attempting to remove all the yellow squares from the board using simple 3 gems matches is very time consuming, especially at the higher levels of the game, this will require a lot of tools.
  3. Strive to match as many stones as possible with each move to create special stones. Avoid the temptation to use striped rocks and bombs right away. Instead, work to move them closer together so you can swap them with each other for maximum effect.
  4. Stock up on tools. They can be invaluable when you first start playing a puzzle.
  5. Use the Talisman of Time. It can be done by combining specific collections on the Artifacts tab of the Collections menu. Talisman of Time will add one minute to the main match time for each puzzle and picture played within 24 hours.

Mosaic (puzzles)

The puzzle will become available at player level 7. The goal is to move the pieces onto the field within the frame in order to assemble the picture within a certain period of time. Images are composed of game scenes that the player has unlocked. A picture will appear first. You will need to remember it. After clicking on the "Play" button, the image will fly apart, and you will need to assemble it before the timer at the top of the screen ends.



  1. Pictures are screenshots of other game scenes, cropped in various ways. The images are random. Some of the paintings, such as the Mayan temple and the crashed plane, are much more difficult to solve with puzzles. You can take enough time to examine the picture before clicking the "Play" button.
  2. Once two or more shapes are correctly connected, the entire group of shapes will move together. It is usually faster to assemble groups of parts than to place each part individually.
  3. When a group of 2 or more fragments is correctly framed, it will give a small flash. Subsequent shapes added correctly will also flash.
  4. If Talisman of Time is activated, it will increase the research time of all pictures and puzzles, including puzzles, by 60 seconds for 24 hours.
  5. Before reproducing the drawing, look for areas with unusual or distinct patches of color, or areas with pronounced horizontal or vertical lines that cross multiple portions. Search for these fragments first, and collect them. Look for ribs and corner pieces, but don’t try to collect the entire edge first.

The Secret Society: Quest Guide

Common tasks. Some quests may ask you to complete a shared quest in exchange for experience points, such as "Explore five different locations in Morph mode" (as shown in the picture above) or "Explore Ghost Town 3 times at night". These quests are not related to collections, but can serve as a description for the game to show the player how certain functions, such as energy items or talismans, work, or simply advance the storyline of the game.

Data collection tasks. The vast majority of tasks in the game are related to collections. Typically, these tasks appear in a series of 6 quests. The first task asks you to find 1 item from the collection, 2 task - 2 items from the collection, and so on until all 5 objects needed to combine the collection are found. 6 mission - to unite the collection.

One-time tasks by element. Some tasks ask the player to find items that do not belong to any collection, but simply help to complete the story. Some of these items will appear in the Miscellaneous tab of your inventory, but they serve no purpose in-game and cannot be used.

One-off quests with items are the type of quest that creates the most confusion among players new to the game. Since the vast majority of quests are collection-building, players begin to expect that the item they must win in the quest belongs to a collection. When a player is faced with a one-time task for an item and then scrolls through the list of collections to find the item that the task relates to, he will not find it.

Advertising tasks. At the beginning of the game, you will be asked to do the work for the developers and advertise the game. These tasks are included in the main quests of the game (and are counted towards the total amount of your quests), but are accompanied by an additional incentive in the form of reward crystals for their completion. Examples include liking a game on Facebook or following a publisher (G5) on Twitter. By clicking on the link in the description of the quest, you will be taken to your device’s web browser, where the login page for the specific social network will automatically load to complete the quest requirement. Sometimes, just clicking on the link a few times will complete the quest, which is useful for people who don’t want to create accounts just to progress in the game.

Order badges. Of all the quests in the game, only 2 ask you to find and select the objects hidden inside the pictures. These are the Badges of the Order. 1 Order badge - The quest appears very early, as one of the first big quests you encounter. You need to find 200 silver icons hidden inside various pictures. They will appear on images after activating the mission. You can search for icons in any image. 2 Order badge will open after reaching a certain level of the player and completing 1 Order quest. To complete the 2nd task, you must find 400 silver icons hidden inside the pictures.

Repeat the tasks. They do not belong to the "general" type of quest (for example, several times you will be asked to "explore the Ghost Town in night mode 3 times"), but in these cases they are considered unique quests in the game. These quests provide additional rewards.


Answers to popular questions about assignments

The quest says asks to investigate a certain picture (puzzle), but the required item is not there. Check the "Found" list for this scene. Some items will become available when you level up the stage. Some items require a certain level of the player (detective). If the item you are looking for does not appear in Find It, the picture may be in the wrong game mode.

I have examined the picture many times in the correct mode, but the quest does not end. According to the developers, it would be boring to play if everything was found right away. Some quests can be won on the first try, others can take 1000 tries. Every time you successfully explore a picture or win a puzzle, you are rewarded with a number of "Found" items at random. Lucky items such as talismans and artifacts increase your chances of winning the desired object. Investigator friends also increase the chances of dropping the required item.

What can you do to speed up the process of finding the right item? If a quest asks for a specific collection item, go to the Collections section and find the collection to which it belongs. There is a green plus sign in the upper right corner of the image of this item, if it can be added to your wishlist. Clicking the plus sign will add that item to your wishlist. If one of your friends gives you this item, you will complete the quest.

How can I speed up finding an item if it can’t be added to my wishlist? Unfortunately, if an item does not have a green plus sign, it cannot be gifted. You will have to follow the instructions of the quest, and play the correct picture in the correct mode, or play the puzzle until you win the item in the usual way.

The quest asks me to find an item in one picture, but the information field of the item says that it can be found in another picture, where should I search? It doesn’t matter where you find the item. Finding it in any picture, puzzle or receiving it as a gift from friends, you will complete the task.

The Secret Society: Tips for Using and Getting Energy

The amount of energy required varies between pictures (puzzles) and also increases as the level of the scene increases. Images containing anomalies cost extra energy if you don’t banish the anomaly before playing.

You can find the current number of energy points at the top center of your home desktop.

Energy is different from Force. Using weights that restore energy will not increase your strength.

Energy level and maximum energy. The figure above shows the current and maximum energy. In the example in the picture, the player has 617 energy points out of the maximum 290 energy points available. Your maximum energy value increases by 5 units with each new player level. You can also increase your maximum by using Dinner (restores all energy and adds 10 points to the maximum) or a Celebration event equivalent to dinner.

Energy recovery. Your energy points regenerate slowly over time, and are restored to their maximum each time you reach a new level. Recovery occurs at a speed of 1 unit of energy in 3 minutes (20 units per hour). The under-energy clock shows how much time is left until a new unit of energy is restored.

Once you reach your maximum, the clock will stop and your energy stops regenerating until you start spending it. You can get energy from rewards or from food in your inventory, they will be added to your current total amount of energy, even if the total is greater than your maximum (as in the example). Any units of energy that you receive from rewards can raise your energy level above the limit.

Using food to restore energy. As you explore pictures and puzzles, your energy reserve will decrease. Once the energy runs out, you will not be able to conduct activity studies. In addition to Talismans and awards, you can restore energy with the help of special items - food. They can be won or bought with crystals. If you try to press "Explore" on the scene when you do not have the required amount of energy, then you will be prompted to use a food product from your inventory if you have an item.

There are currently 6 food items available in the game:

Cappuccino - restores 30 units of energy.

Ice Cream - restores 50 units of energy.

Donut - restores 100 units of energy.

Lunch box - restores 150 units of energy.

Energy drink - restores 250 units of energy.

Dinner - fully restores all energy and increases the limit by 10 units.

The Secret Society: Tips for Using and Gaining Power

The power is used to charge your friends’ photos, puzzles, or tabletop rewards as you visit them. Each charge costs you 10 Strength. When visiting a friend, the current amount of power and the current maximum amount of power are displayed at the top of the friend’s desktop, in the position where your energy is displayed on your home desktop.

To visit a friend, open the Friends section (the bottom panel on your desktop), then select a friend and click on his avatar. Several commands appear, select "Visit". You will be taken to your friend’s home desktop. Each day you are allowed to perform a certain number of actions for each friend you visit. The amount is determined by your reputation level. To charge a picture, puzzle or reward, simply click on the icon of this object. A check mark will appear if you have successfully charged it. Each charge costs you 10 strength points.

Available charge indicator. During a visit to a friend, an indicator appears on the left side of the screen that shows the number of actions that can be performed while visiting this person. In the example above, you can make up to 10 charges, assuming at least 100 power units are available. The maximum number of actions per friend per day is 10, which is achieved at a reputation level of 50. Each charge will decrease this counter by 1. If you fully charge a friend and visit him again before 24 hours, the indicator will show 0.

Strength level and maximum strength. Your strength will be fully restored and your maximum strength will increase by 10 when you reach a new player level. The maximum power will stop increasing after reaching level 450, and 4550 is the maximum base power of your progress in the game. You can increase your maximum using weight (restores all strength and adds 10 points to your maximum). The maximum strength of a player is determined by the level of his experience and the number of used golden weights.

Reaching a new level of reputation does not restore any strength points.

Restoration of strength. Strength units regenerate at a rate of 1 unit every 3 minutes (20 units per hour and 480 units per day). Strength is fully restored as soon as you gain a new player level. Winged Talismans of Lightning do not increase the rate of recovery of strength, they only work with energy.

Weights. There are 4 weights to restore strength. They are available as rewards for some collections. The scales can be purchased at the store. They are located on the Power tabs of the Inventory and Store sections. To use a weight to increase your current strength, open the Strength tab of your inventory and click on the weight you want to use.

Low weight - restores 30 units of strength, costs 5 crystals.

Medium weight - restores 50 units of strength, costs 8 crystals.

Significant weight - restores 100 units of strength, costs 15 crystals.

Gold weight - fully restores the power scale and adds 10 units to the maximum value. Costs 50 crystals.

The Secret Society: How to Obtain and Use Talismans

Talismans are special tools that last for a specific period of time. Some talismans can be used to increase the reward from successfully exploring pictures or puzzles. Other types speed up energy recovery, increase rewards for visiting friends, add time to study pictures and puzzles, reduce the number of special items needed to study pictures, and much more.

  7. Event Talismans - Completing temporary game events will reward you with these Talismans. They are similar to many Artifacts.

When you activate a talisman, its effect begins immediately. You can see the remaining time under the Talisman image on the right side of the desktop. This is real time and cannot be extended by pausing during exploration or exiting the game. You can use one of each type of talisman (or artifact) at the same time.

As the number of items you win is greater, the chances of you winning the item you want increase. However, the items you win are still randomly generated, so there is no guarantee that you will win the specific item you are looking for.

Amulet of good luck - + 30% to the receipt of items for 90 minutes. Cost - 18 crystals.

Talismans of friendship. They help in communicating with friends in the game, for example, in recuperating and rewarding for visiting friends. Friends’ Talismans increase the amount of rewards from visiting friends by a certain percentage when activated.

Bronze Disc - Accelerates recovery of strength for 30 minutes. Cost - 7 crystals.

Gold Disc - speeds up recovery of strength for 90 minutes. Cost - 18 crystals.

The Magic Crystal is a reward for logging into the game every day. It takes 25 days to obtain a crystal. It consists of 5 components. You must log in for 5 consecutive days to receive each crystal component. For each component, if you miss a day, you will be given the option to restart the five-day period or restore your progress by paying in crystals.

You can use the Magic Crystal in addition to another talisman that increases coins and gain additional benefits. You can also use the crystal in addition to another talisman that increases Luck. For example, using the Diamond Horseshoe, which increases luck by 90%, plus the Magic Crystal, which increases luck by 12%, adds up to 102%. This does not mean that you are guaranteed to receive any item, it means that you are approximately twice as likely to win it compared to using the talisman of luck.

Artifacts are varieties of Talismans. They are created by combining 5 completed collections. Most artifact talismans have a duration of 24 to 48 hours. Artifacts are displayed in the Talisman Inventory section. To create artifacts, players must combine five collections. To create an artifact, you must first combine one of the 5 different collections that create this artifact. As such, it takes 25 collectibles to complete each artifact.

The Secret Society: Tool Tips

The game has 6 tools available for use when exploring pictures and puzzles. The function of each tool remains the same for every picture in any available mode, but some of them differ in puzzles. Tools can be obtained for successful research of certain paintings, and as a reward for combining certain collections. If you cannot continue your research, then tools can be bought at the store for crystals or coins.

Explorer’s eye . In all game modes, the Explorer’s Eye will point to 1 object when used. The item will glow for a few seconds after the tool finds it. In night mode, the Explorer’s Eye will point to an object even if it is in the darkened part of the image. The object will light up to show its location, and you can click on it without moving the light circle towards it. The instrument will highlight 2 items in Par.

Compass. In all display modes, the Compass tool will point to an item on the list to find for 30 seconds. When the compass approaches an object, it points to that object. When the compass is over an object, the compass needle will rotate around. In pair mode, the tool will show both pairs when you drag it close to one object in a pair. When you press one of the pairs, the other will stop glowing, so it is better to press the second object in the pair, rather than the one the compass points to first, to save time when searching for pairs. If you first click on the first object in a pair that the compass points to, the compass will point to the second pair until you miss or find it.

Torch. Can only be used in night mode. The torch illuminates the entire picture for 35 seconds.

Flashlight. Can only be used in night mode. The flashlight doubles the radius of the circle of light for 30 seconds.

Dynamite. In all image modes, the dynamite tool will remove up to 3 objects at a time. In Parts mode, dynamite will only remove parts of the object you are currently looking for, so if you only have 1 or 2 parts of that object left, the dynamite will only remove those parts and not any parts of the next item you should. It is similarly used to investigate the Scroll Eater Anomaly painting. Dynamite will only remove the current item (1 item) specified in the list.

Time Machine. In all picture modes, the tool will add 45 leap seconds to the main time. If the time runs out before you find all of the hidden objects, the game will prompt you to use the Time Machine from your inventory, or buy it if you are away.

Receiving tools. Some tools can be given to you as a reward for successfully researching paintings or for combining collections, and achieving certain success in the game. Sometimes, you receive a tool as a random thank you gift from a friend.

Usage advice. Three tools - a compass, a flashlight and a time machine - can be bought for coins in the store Compasses and Flashlights are cheaper than Time Machines. However, if you are working towards earning an award for a higher level of desktop tools, which requires the use of thousands of tools to achieve. For example, the lights can only be used in night mode and will last 30 seconds. The largest number of flashlights you can use in one painting investigation (which should be in night mode) is 10.

Compasses can be used in all picture modes, but again last for 30 seconds. The largest number of compasses that can be used in Text and Silhouette mode is 6, and the largest number of compasses that can be used in all other picture modes is 10. There is no limit on how much extra time you can add to a timer other than yours. your own patience and the number of Time Machines in your inventory. This means that you can use 100 time machines in a single image exploration or puzzle, which will help you reach your Tools reward goal faster.
