I apologize for being late to post this.
Tonight there will be a maintenance at 6:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time. At this time no one will be able to get into the game. Get all your needed things done on there quickly. As for when the game will come back on....that's something I'll need to look into.
As for the contest, there's one going on in Facebook with posting your village in the contest post. One lucky winner will receive 5,000 food as a prize. The winner will be chosen randomly so don't be sad if you lost, there's always next time. Submissions need to come in before August 18, not on August 18th but before.
EDIT: Congratulations to Sammy Didrikson for winning the contest!
There's all the announcements out of the way for now :) happy summoning everyone!
