Ship's Deck is unlocked when the player reaches level 178 (level 7 when originally introduced).
Players can 'pay to play' Ship's Deck from level 176 onward, where they can choose to pay with crystals (which will need to be bought with real money) to unlock the Picture early, rather than waiting until they reach level 178 and unlock it for free through normal game play.
Ship's Deck was introduced during the Time Trap Update (June 2017). For the duration of the challenge, Perpetual calendar special items were needed in addition to energy points to play Ship's Deck. Perpetual calendars were given as rewards for every successful investigation for every picture, as well as for banishing anomalies, but not for playing puzzles. The Guardian of the Desert Update (July 2017) removed Perpetual calendars from the game and Ship's Deck became a free picture only requiring energy to play.
From the Diary:
"Among the shards of a broken conch shell, Alfred found the fragments of a magical photo. The picture featured the "Ship's Deck" associated with an unfathomable story that Richard once investigated. A cruise ship that had been declared missing more than sixty years ago docked in Portsmouth. We couldn't ignore such a strange incident and set out to learn the truth about what happened. The sudden appearance of the Felicity is covered in a veil of mystery and the story is a closed book. What actually happened to the ship and why do the passengers claim that it's been only a week since they departed? These are the difficult questions we need to find answers to."
Ship's Deck is one of the pictures in the game that does not reward any combining elements, but does reward collection items that require a large number of combining elements to combine.
The following is a list of hidden items found in Ship's Deck in most modes. Depending on the Picture Level and Game Mode you may not have to find all the items in one visit. Morphs and Pieces modes have their own items that need to be found, separate from those listed below.
- Anchor outline
- Big mug
- Conch shell
- Diving gear
- Diving helmet
- Peaked cap ¹
- Radio receiver
- Ship's wheel
- Small bell
- World map
- The Hanami Festival Update (April 2018) made the following changes:
- Forage cap was renamed Peaked cap
Resource Demands and Rewards for PlayingEdit
Ship's Deck is a Collection Item only Picture. This means its list of potential rewards for each play only contains regular Collection Items, mode dependent Collection Items (depending on what mode the Picture is currently in), and Quest Items (if a Quest is currently active for the Picture). The list of potential rewards for Ship's Deck is made up of 8 Collections:
- Inconspicuous pursuit
- Anamorphic art
- Jewels of the depths
- Criminalist's case
- Art of deception
- Runaway's things
- Magic runes
When Ship's Deck is first opened, it is at Novice level, and only the items from the Inconspicuous pursuit collection will be on the list of potential rewards. As the level of the Picture is increased, more and more items will be unlocked as potential rewards.
The amount of energy required to play Ship's Deck will increase as the level of the Picture is increased. The experience points and coins rewards for each win of the Picture will also increase to match the increase in resource demands:
