Free Six The Croods Game Cheats and Tips

Posted on March 25, 2013  in Gaming

As I mentioned in my previous post, I missed doing my free six series. I also missed doing some Android and mobile gaming post so why not combine them into one post 🙂
Are you looking for The Croods game cheats or The Croods game tips perhaps? Maybe you want some free Croods coins or free Croods crystals too? If yes, then you are lucky today and you have come to the right place. Just read my tips and tricks below and try it.

I discovered this Free Android App The Croods game by Rovio and Dreamworks over the weekend and I liked it very much. The Croods game is free for Android, and is also available for free to iPhones and iPads. I discovered a lot of good game tips over the weekend so in the tradition of my free six video, my six cafe world cheats, my free wow mounts and my other free six series posts, here are some Free Six The Croods Game Cheats, Tips and Tricks:

The Croods Game Cheat #1. Fastest way to level is to follow Granny and do Gran’s chores.
Yes you hairy oafs Gran gives good advices at the start of the game and this true all over the course of the game. And by doing her chores you gain good The Croods XP experience points and free Croods coins.

the-croods-do-gran-chores

Just follow Gran’s advice. As much as possible DO NOT create new homes/structures yet or upgrade existing ones before Gran tells you. Because Gran will request it as the game progress and it’s a waste of time/resource re-doing the structures/upgrades.

The Croods Game Cheat #2. Group similar structures (homes) together.
Keep structures or homes close/adjacent/near each other so that it will be easier to manage. I learned this in Warcraft, Starcraft and other games and this is generally useful for most games, the Croods Game included.

the-croods-group-together-molarbear-bunny-beast

Here I place my Molarbear homes and Bunny Beast homes near each other so that I can create carrots and stones faster.

The Croods Game Cheat #3.Use Capacity. Queue it.
Chores can be done in queue (or sequence) when you have needed materials.
Look at the image below. My Molarbear is currently doing 6 carrots on queue.

the-croods-capacity-02

I can feed my Molarbear with more berries so that it can do production queue up to 16 carrots and the bar below it will reach full capacity (see next image).

the-croods-capacity-02-full

Capacity can be increased when evolving homes.

The Croods Game Cheat #4. Need Free Croods Coin? Trade with Ugga and create Ugga’s soup.

This is the safest Free Croods Coins tip in-game.

ugga-s-soup-for-coins

This is win-win because you create soup to level up the creatures and have Free Croods Coins rewards. But if you are a rich kid then go buy some Croods coins in game.

The Croods Game Cheat #5. Be Careful with the Crystals.

On my current level, the Crood Crystals are the hardest to get and therefore the most important resource in game in my own personal opinion.

I don’t know if this is really game design or maybe my phone is just too small for the game but the upgrade using crystals mechanism is so easy to use accidentally and there is no confirmation. See image below

the-croods-careful-with-crystals

Yes, pressing this crystal will instantly finish the resource production or animal home upgrade. But when there are lot of clickable items in the game screen (example is that there are many items to harvest already) its really easy to accidentally hit on this crystal. But again, if you are a rich kid then go on buy some Croods crystal in game too 🙂

the-croods-crystals-expensive-free-crystals

The Croods Game Cheat #6. Increase cave storage.
As the game progresses, cave storage becomes very important because it will tell you how many resources you can keep.

the-croods-cave-increase-storage

Cave storage needs lots of Croods crystals and given the difficulty of crystals in-game, I would recommend paying attention to this tip and upgrading as soon as resources permit.
As a bonus cheat: like my usual game cheats and tips post, I always encourage safe gaming, meaning don’t cheat, don’t run other app/exe/scripts/surveys that promises to give you free Croods coins or free Croods crystals. There are lots of malware, spyware, keylogger, malicious downloaders, fake apps, fake surveys out there that are masquerading as cheat tools and engines. Always be safe in your gaming. OK?

Hope you like my Free Six The Croods cheats and tips post.

Palawan. More Fun in the Philippines!!!

Posted on February 27, 2012  in Personal Experiences, Technology

Raven and I went to Palawan last month to celebrate our anniversary. We went to Puerto Princesa Underground River, we toured the islands in Honda Bay, and we also roamed around Puerto Princesa to really experience that It’s More Fun In The Philippines.

In the tradition of my six cafe world cheats, six free android fix, six free wow mount, my free six video, and six tagalog love quotes posts, I am sharing some six pictures from Palawan.
First is the rock lobster we had in Isla Pandan during our Honda Bay Tour

Add up some Alimasag (Crabs) too

And the other fare that we had for lunch in Isla Pandan (shrimp, pork chop, inihaw na isda atbp.)

Next pit stop is Badjao Seafront Restaurant, a must visit resto when you are in Puerto Princesa Palawan.

We had Spicy Squid, Garlic and Butter Lobster (again haha), Eggplant salad (see I’m eating veggies now) and local clam soup.

Last 2 pics taken at Kalui, another must visit resto when you are in Puerto Princesa Palawan.

The garlic prawn we had was really good!

And our Fruit Bowl dessert was really unique!

The Palawan pics share seems to be “bitin” (limited by free six series 🙂 ) .

Will try to sort more photos and post more about our great Palawan experience in the future (maybe a part 2 and part 3 will be coming soon).

For those who have not visited Palawan yet, I suggest you start planning as soon as possible.

Because: Palawan. It’s More Fun in the Philippines!!!

Facebook Angry Birds Cheats and Tips

Posted on February 22, 2012  in Gaming

Angry Birds is now on Facebook!!! It all started on Valentine’ Day last week, I blogged about it here.

Are you looking for some Facebook Angry Birds Cheats or Facebook Angry Birds Tips then you are in the right place 🙂

I have played Facebook Angry Birds and its great! Facebook Angry Birds is like the original Angry Birds app for iPhone and Android but with a twist 🙂

Starting the game you will have the familiar episodes (Poached Eggs and Mighty Hoax) and the new  Surf and Turf Facebook exclusive episode.

So in the tradition of my six cafe world cheats, my six free android fix, my six free wow mount, my free six video posts, here are some six Facebook Angry Birds Cheats and Tips worth sharing

#1. Facebook Angry Birds have power-ups and knowing when to use the power ups will definitely give you advantage.

Here are some examples of the Facebook Angry Birds power ups

#2. BirdQuake Power Up will definitely cause a Quake and Rattle the Battle

#3. King Sling Power Up will boost and get you maximum velocity

#4. Sling Scope Power Up will help you target the Bad Piggies more accurately, so that you don’t shoot in the dark

#5. Super Seed Power Up will literally Super Size your Angry Birds

#6. And last but not the least: Do not cheat! Why? Cheaters never win!!!!

Angry Birds is a fun game and Facebook Angry Birds adds the social and friends dimension, so enjoy the game with your Facebook friends. Keeping the security mindset (always a core message for this blog), I highly recommend that you DO NOT run executable programs/apps that supposedly will do some magic trick for your Facebook Angry Birds. There are sites that are offering these kinds of tools and cheat engines and my advise is stay on the safe side. If you cannot determine if the app is good or bad (by knowing exactly what the app/exe is doing on the system/registry level (via reverse engineering or system monitoring, etc.) then DO NOT try to run it in your machine (whether you got a PC or Mac). Btw, this applies to your Android and iOS devices too! There are a lots of malware, spyware, keyloggers, and trojan downloaders out there that are masquerading as cheat tools and engines and fan apps.

I hope you like my Facebook Angry Birds post!!!

I will try to research and give more Facebook Angry Birds tips soon so visit this blog often 🙂

Free Six Munich Treats

Posted on October 17, 2011  in Travel

I presented in Trend Micro Enterprise Security Konferenz 2011 in Munich, Germany last month. I’m lucky that the event coincided with Oktoberfest 🙂 .

Just like my San Francisco and Cupertino visits and in the tradition of my free six cafe world cheats, my six new Philippine money, my six free wow mounts, my six Tagalog love quotes and my free six video posts, I’m posting six Munich Germany Treats here in menardconnect.com.


First on my list is the Nuremberg sausage. I had this for lunch in the hotel.

Next is the Bratwurst and sausages in Oktoberfest. Roaming around in the Weis’n grounds really made me hungry. So I just pointed at the picture of the sausage with bread and told the salesman to add ketchup only and hunger solved.

This one is the lebkuchenherzen or the famous German Gingerbread Heart. There’s a lot of these lebkuchenherz in Oktoberfest and this one is a complimentary gift from the hotel.

For the fourth one, let’s have some Schweinsbräu Gold beer. German beers are really good stuff and this one was served during one of the dinners we had (forgive me for the poor lighting, maybe I’m already tipsy when I shot this one) 🙂 .

Learning from the previous shot, I took a sip first and took this picture early. This one is the Andechser Spezial Hell. Prost!!!

And last but definitely not the least is my survival foodstuff during nighttime: the Moser Roth milk chocolates, the salt and pepper potato chips and of course the ever dependable “Naturelle” mineral water.

Sorry no techie stuff for this post (maybe it’s worth a post in my other blog).

Hope you liked my six Munich Germany treats post.

Oktoberfest 2011 at Munich, Germany

Posted on October 8, 2011  in Travel


Oktoberfest is the famous beer festival held annually in Munich, Germany. Since I was in Munich during the festival, I took my camera, rode the SBahn from my hotel to München Hackerbrücke station and walked all the way to Weisn where the festivities are in full swing.

Oktoberfest celebrations in Theresienwiese have been happening for a long time already. Sharing some history of the event, Crown Prince Ludwig married Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on October 12 1810, and the citizens of Munich were invited to attend the festivities held on the fields in front of the city gates. The fields have been named Theresienwiese (“Therese’s meadow”) in honor of the Crown Princess and the locals have since abbreviated the field’s name to “Wies’n” or “Weisn” and the Oktoberfest festival was born.

München Oktoberfest 2011 officially started September 17, 2011 and lasted until October 3, 2011.

In the tradition of my free six cafe world cheats, my six new Philippine money, my six free wow mounts, my six Tagalog love quotes and my free six video posts, I am posting some six photos taken from Oktoberfest 2011.

Hippodrom’s colorful beer tent seems to stand out imho.

HB Festzelt is next

Armbrustschützen

Schottenhamel

and last but not the least is my (and hopefully my #security #infosec friends’) favorite: Hacker Festzelt


All beer tents pics for now. I’ll check if I can come up with Oktoberfest 2011 part 2 post to include the biergartens, rides, food stuff and other views.

Hope you like my Oktoberfest 2011 photos and blog update.

Prost!!!

Google Gives Gregor Mendel a Cool Doodle

Posted on July 20, 2011  in Blog Experiences


Don’t be surprised if you see some green and healthy looking Google doodle today.

Yes Google is honoring Gregor Johann Mendel with a cool green pea shaped doodle for the day.

But who is Gregor Mendel?

I will be giving six trivial info about Gregor Mendel in the tradition of my free six cafe world cheats, my six new philippine money, my free six video, my six tagalog love quotes and my six free wow mounts posts.

1. Gregor Mendel is the Father of Modern Genetics.
2. He is famous for his pea experiments that discuss the dominant and recessive traits in heredity. I am guessing that this is the reason why the Google doodle is pea shaped today.
3. He was also an Augustinian friar.
4. He was born in Czech Republic and spent most of his time in the city of Brno, Czech Republic.
5. Today is his 189th birthday so the Google doodle.

6. Super trivial stuff: His name was my section in high school – 3rd year (hehe shameless Batis ng Diwa plug)


If you want to know about more about Gregor Mendel, just interact with the Google Doodle OK 🙂

HP7: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 at SM MOA IMAX Review

Posted on July 18, 2011  in Personal Experiences, Reviews


We watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 at the IMAX Theater at SM Mall of Asia last Saturday.

We enjoyed the movie and I am happy to write my own review so in tradition of my six new Philippine money, my six foursquare cheats, my six tagalog love quotes and my free six video posts, here are some six comments and review of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 movie.



Image Credit: Warner Bros. Pictures/Wikipedia.org/boxofficemojo.com

1. Special Effects. The movie has great special effects and this I guess this was amplified by 3D and IMAX experience. I personally like the Gringrotts train scene, the Hogwarts statues come alive scene, the magical fortification of Hogwarts, the defeat of Bellatrix and Tom Riddle effects and of course Nagini munching on Snivellus 🙂 . I highly recommend viewers to watch this movie in 3D.

2. Captured Emotions. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 movie have captured the high emotions of the book and the story. Yes, HP7 is not all fun but I am glad that the HP7 part 2 of the movie focused on many emotions of the movie and hopefully have successfully conveyed them to the viewers.

3. SM IMAX Movie Reservations. The whole July 16 and 17 (Saturday and Sunday) were already sold out when we are claiming our tickets. We are happy that we got our tickets in advance via calling the SM Cinema Hotline and paying for it in the SM Mall near our home. This is really convenient and hassle free and I believe SM IMAX has other movie reservation system, which I will post in my blog in the future.

4. Other SM IMAX perks. SM Mall also has some booth/showing area that showcased some costumes worn by Harry Potter characters, movie posters of previous Harry Potter films and other Harry Potter stuff. This attraction definitely is a plus (its Kodakan time :p ) for Harry Potter fans especially kids and kids at heart 🙂

On the other side of the review:
5. Less Fight Scenes. I was expecting more fight scenes but was a little bit disappointed (but this is fine I guess). I recall the previous HP movies wherein there was a great fight scene at the Ministry of Magic and I was expecting some epic fight scenes in this HP (was seriously expecting to see that the Centaurs and the house elves led by Kreacher join in the fracas at the last part).

6. “Bitin” – Too Short. I understand that the movie creators cannot possibly put all details of the book into 2-part movie. I also know this is part 2 already but honestly we (and I guess a lot of viewers) are bitin. I checked with IMDB that the HP7 Part 2 is around 2 hours and 10 minutes (while the part 1 was almost 2 hours and a half) and I don’t know if the creators can cram some parts and add more juicy bits of the book and extend some 10 to 20 minutes of Harry Potter excitement and fun!

Overall it’s a great movie and we highly recommend that you watch too 🙂

I heard that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 already made some $476M during its screening which is really cool! I believe some awards will be coming in and movie box office records will be broken… soon.

That’s all for now! Hope you find my Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 review interesting.

Crazy Gasoline Prices 2011 Edition

Posted on July 12, 2011  in Personal Experiences

“Unleaded. Full tank”

This was my request to the manong attendant at the gasoline station yesterday.

“Sir, sero sero poh”

Was the attendant’s reply indicating that the gasoline gauge/meter/counter is at zero (meaning you start the gas fill up from scratch/zero)

Actually my car’s fuel tank is not yet nearing the E bar (E = empty) but I heard that the big gasoline companies LOVE the consumers so much and to show their deep affection they altogether decided to give them some good ol’ price hike.

I took some pic of the gas prices yesterday (before the hike) and I remember that during the early days of my blog (2009) I kept track of the lowest gasoline prices around Metro Manila and share my findings here in my blog.

So in the tradition of my six cafe world cheats, my six free wow cheats, my six new Philippine money, my six tagalog love quotes and my free six video posts, here are some six pictures of the Lowest Unleaded Gasoline Prices way back then 🙂

gasoline price taken on 01.05.2009

P30.10 on January 5, 2009 – related blog post here

Unleaded_Gas_01202009
P29.60 on January 20, 2009 – related blog post here

P31.10 on February 17, 2009 – related blog post here

gasoline-march
P30.20 on March 8, 2009 – related blog post here

august
P37.70 on August 2009 – related blog post here

And come Year 2011

P53.30 on July 11, 2011

OK. I understand that a lot of things happened between August 2009 and July 2011.

But I am just posting this as a reflection of what an ordinary consumer feels with the rising prices of gasoline and related products in Philippines.

Crazy.

Free Six: Cupertino Food

Posted on March 24, 2011  in Food, Travel

I visited Cupertino, California last month but I have not blogged about it yet here at menardconnect.com. I really enjoyed the food in Cupertino just like I enjoyed the food in San Francisco, and I remembered I made a promise here to blog about it so I will try to do another wannabe food blogger post 🙂

In the tradition of my six cafe world cheats, my six free wow cheats, my six foursquare mayor cheats, my six new Philippine money tips, my six tagalog love quotes, my six philhealth forms tips, my six Logitech G27 pics and my free six video posts, here are some six photos of Cupertino food that I love.

This is the Park Place Burger from Park Place of course. I love the cheddar cheese and fried egg with this burger.

The Grilled Beef and Fried Chicken from the Pho Mihn (a Vietnamese resto in Bandley Drive) is definitely a win!

A slice of the Pizza of the day from Pizza My Heart and my newly found fave pizza sauce the Shark Repellent.

On the healthier side I also tried Fatima Restaurant’s Pork and Vegetable. See, I am really a good boy and I eat my veggies too 🙂

I seem to miss San Francisco Clam Chowder so I decided to munch on some Half-pizza and Clam Chowder from Le Boulanger. And to complete combo some Odwalla juice.

Last but definitely not the least is Willy’s Cowboy Sausage Sandwich from Armadillos Willys.

Hope you liked my free six Cupertino food photos and blog post.
