I just realized I am one sword fragment short of completing the collection. I wish the purchase with gems option lasted until the event actually closed.
Thanks for your help. I downloaded the emulator last night and payments are fine now.
When I e-mailed Social Point, they said to "contact Microsoft Support to resolve purchase issues as all the transactions are monitored by them."
Looks like your connection to Socialpoint Forums was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
