Hopefully a fun thread and some travelers can share there experience with less traveled players.


So what is the most crazy/famous place you pulled out your device and made a building collection?

This got me thinking today as I was driving down a toll road from one location to another and pulled over to side of the road to pick up my Night Clubs. Yes silly I know. I happen to have a new friend that likes to visit me. No worries though it's just fake money.

Wedding? Guilty
Funeral? Guilty
Major League Sporting Event? Guilty (Pittsburgh Peguins game watching Sid the Kid)
Toilet? Who doesn't....

Has any collected while on the Eiffel Tower, Statue of Liberty or maybe the Sears Tower?

Maybe while touring the White House?

Sunday mornings in church? Yes you know who I'm talking about...

Church definately.... I work the soundboard for the band and I definately collect during the sermon...I am there for three of them so it's not like I don't memorize the sermons anyway

4 (maybe 5?) different countries and 13 states. WTC Memorial was probably the most famous "place".

Oh and tonight during parent teacher conferences ..looking at my watch knowing I am in that 5 minute grace period before they get robbed waiting patiently for the parents to finish up our conversations. luckily for me my stalker missed and opportunity when I was 15 minute late..(parent teacher communication is the priority so was more than willing to take the hit)

Date? Why do you need a date? According to your prior comments you can pick plenty of dates at work or whatever you do driving ;)

I don't date them. They're annoying as hell. So was the date that I ended early.

Ambulance
Nurse - "You should inform your family"
*grabs phone - collects*
Me - "I texted them"

Macau - City of Dreams - Baccarat
Bank was killing us, winner kept switching.
*goes back to room - collects - return to tables*
End - 95k Richer =D (HK dollars though....)

*In hindsight 6 hour collections helped discipline walking away from a losing streak. Hmmm +1 addiction benefits!

You technically don't have to be arrested to be in the back. You can be a Vic, witness, or complainant. If your under, your not gonna have your phone, if for an odd reason you somehow do, your gonna be rear cuffed so if you can log into it you got some serious skills lol

Lol that's priceless.

Nowhere too crazy or famous for me, have definitely collected while at an Oakland A's game. And plenty of times last semester in class, but eventually sync'd my buildings so I wouldn't have to miss out on my edumacation.

Dusseldorf, Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg, all in Germany
Brussels, Belgium
Paris, France
Alsace, France
Rome, Italy
Geneva, Switzerland
Madrid, Spain
Belagio, Las Vegas
Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, Discovery Cove, Daytona Raceway, Daytona Beach, all Florida
Whatever airports we stopped over in when flying to and from the USA
Ibiza, Balearic Islands
At the Olympics, London

Most novel probably on a pub crawl in Basel where in the course of an evening you stop for a beer in a pub in each of France, Germany and Switzerland, all within walking distance of each other.

Wowsers, I've had a busy year! In fairness most of those European destinations were business related and were a case of airport/hotel/meeting/hotel/airport with little or no sight-seeing or downtime, and really not much fun at all.

The nurses know I like the bay by the window when I go into hospital, but they don't know it's the only bay where I can get a signal!

My most notable place would be kauii, Hawaii on a secluded beach I had no service but left game running so I could collect 8 hours and night clubs! I had to buy explosives because I couldn't bank with no service.

In Ky, OSHA would be all over you! No hard hat, and not tied in, all while on the phone too... lol.

14 pitch... How many feet off the ground, because one can build up some speed rolling down that!!

Watching my son's football (soccer) match, I missed his over head winning goal. I had synced my buildings and wanted to keep them running to my time table.

In a restaurant
On the train
At the beach
On a trip to Eltham Palace in London
In the street

Driving down the freeway, fishing, at a pro baseball game, restaurants, family gatherings, work. Seems silly when people ask what you're doing. Most often just say I'm looking up something on the internet.
