I played the game until it shut down, and it was a lot of fun. It was also a LOT of work, sometimes taking 2 hours to update every week.

I really enjoyed it, I recommend it, but because of the time involved, I won't be going back.

The game has been streamlined a bit to make things faster.

I've been playing since the original beta test and love the game.

Mark -- Did you ever buy the In House Booker? When I hit the 3 theatre mark that cut my booking time by 95%.

John,

Yes, I had 12 fully equipped 10-screen theates. I had every theatre max-ed out. I did use the in-house booker, but I wanted to keep each theatre the same, and if I got one screen off...things took FOREVER to fix.

This is not a put down of the game...I found it to be a lot of fun. I just need to spend my time in other ways.

Well if you want to keep your theatres booked exactly the same, a new feature of the game is that you can have unlimited mirror locations of your theatre in each state.


That is to say, if you wish, you can book a single complex, and just buy new exactly the same complexes and that keeps your options rather simple.

It is one of the new streamlining features of the new game.

As far as the old version, I know your pain, when the game shut down I had 58 theatres fully upgraded and expanded and I know a misbook on one theatre screwed everything up.
