Here is how it works - player data is only updated periodically. If you leave me room hints, the next person who visits me might not see that my rooms already have hints, so they can leave hints too. The game will then keep track of the 2 hints my room has.
Sometimes, my rooms have 10+ hints.
As mentioned before once in a while I can give hints only to a couple of rooms of a friends manor. Are they really maxed out?
I didn't think rooms could get maxed out with hints, as I sort of "blew" a lot of my hints into sfinley imbrahims kitchen yesterday going back and forth, but I might not have used all 10 of them, I'm not sure.
@admin if you say 10+ .. you do not know exactly?
So it actually works so that the Manor does not update that often - and in between "updates" there can be as many hints as friends willing to do so? So it might (in theory) be limitless...
Too bad. I had such a fun plan:
Try to find out how many hints one room can hold:
Hold a kitchen party at a friend we all have who has its Ipad on Flightmode, storm in there and get all our 10 hints placed.
The one who could not hint anymore gives a holler, and then we would count.
