YoWorld Memories
I started playing YoVille on 1-21-2009 when my Canadian friends encouraged me to check it out. I had one friend in Canada who was leaving YoVille so she sent me everything, all of her stuff. There were a ton of Halloween things and since I am a Halloween junkie, I was hooked ! At that time I had a free apartment and now have 210 properties..
My first obsession was setting up a table, bar or anything with a drink, soda or whatever.. There was just the sky drink which was VERY scarce. I remember paying an arm and a leg for them at auctions! I thought some things were really cool like the case of beer from the from the trailer home. I also loved the broke down pick up truck and the raggy recliner.. I am wearing my first pair of earrings and animated hair which were too cool ! We got free gifts and you could save them or open them. I made sure I kept one of each gift unopened..For a summer or so Yoville teamed up with 7-11 and if you bought certain items at 7-11 these items had codes for free stuff. I still have a Yoville cup which had a slurpie inside !
I remember when we were picketing for some reason but we all wore the Barrel for ever. We also picketed to save Yoville until BVG saved our world. Since 2009 I have been in the hospital a few times and if I don't have my laptop, I don't go. Gotta escape to my YoWorld at least a few times a day !
I remember having chairs and beds yet we couldn't sit or lay down..Then one day we could sit !!!
When we first had our apartments when you exited your room there were balconies and you couold throw balloons at your friends walking on different floors as you could see all of the levels and balconies. You got coins for throwing balloons.
Magical herbs are old and were a hot thing a few years back. You can consume them and turned into a green thingy...
I have still never figured some things out like where the heck you get hotdogs and this whole process. I have an octopus inflatable and could never inflate it, don't even know where it is now! Gotta love when they added a button to clean out a room instantly instead of item by item.. Some things which drove me crazy was that darn tree house.. I named it the SH**ty treehouse, Yobers drive me crazy, some rooms are sized wrong so it's hard to place items,
I love the fishing game but it is hard to actually catch a fish. I don't miss trying to work in the factory and everyone would be standing in the way then finally when you went to work there is no one in there working with you.. I hated burnt cakes.... I don't miss any scammers, I got scammed a few times....

By far, the most memorable experience was making YoFilms (on YouTube) based on my favorite TV shows (Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul). What a challenge it was to recreate set designs and characters with available items! <3 Thank you BVG for keeping the wonderful world of YO alive and thriving!!

It will always be my favorite memory when I accidentally discovered Yoville had not died but was reborn as YoWorld! After missing my favorite game for years, I returned to find all my things still waiting for me and my Yo could now be BEAUTIFUL with real hair, better clothing and .....boobs! :haha: :D :thumbsup: :heart:

My favorite Yomemory is a tear jerker. My friend Linda I met in the game offered to fly and take care of me and my family after I had brain surgery. Who does that? How many people are really willing to drop everything in their lives to care for a person? Let alone a person they have never met before outside of a game?

I have a second favorite memory. My yofriend Virginia recently passed away. I loved all the tributes her friends made for her in Yo.

My favorite memory about Yo, is when it was still YoVille way back in '09. My daughter was playing it & showing me how it was done. I started getting interested from watching her & decided to join. I've been playing ever since, even though she quit the game. It was fun playing with her. Not only did we play the game together, but it was something that strengthened our bond. I miss those days with her, but she still looks at the screen sometimes when I'm in there. (Secretly,... I think she wishes to have a computer, or laptop, to play again herself!) Ha, ha! :haha: I'm so thankful for BVG having saved our game! A huge :thumbsup: to you guys!! :heart:

Some of my favorite memories are the times I've spent playing with my children and grand children. We each would buy an avenue and using flowers, trees, bushes and rocks we'd see who could create the best "Hide and Go Seek" place; of course, we'd have to play a game or two before deciding who had created the best. I've played since Oct. 2008; I started on Tagged. com and moved my game here when they closed it out on that site. To date, I've NEVER won a game of "Rock, paper, scissors" against my grandchildren; they always wait until I've made my choice before choosing their, and since the computers sit side by side on the same desk...........LOL

A little late but still in time, only just saw the pop up with the survey :haha: :silly:

My favourite Yo memory is meeting all my friends on Yo over the last 9 years! I've had an absolute blast! I've made so many since you took over the game in 2014, more than I made pre 2014 times actually! So thank you for taking over the game or I'd have never met half of my new Yo friends! :heart:

mine is playing with Violet, she passed away last year and I miss her visits and her daily messages, the game is just not the same without her, when she was sick i would buy 2 of everything so she would not do without while she was away getting treatment, I miss those days

i remember how thrilled i was every time i unlocked another room in my starter apartment. i was so excited when i opened the balcony. of course i had to have BVG's renovated apartment when it was released in 2015. i've always loved the apartment since it was the start of a long love affair with my most favorite app of all time.

I used to love being able to buy a home and it actually having a full room to decorate, not just a triangle. It just dosn't make it possible to decorate the way you use to. You're loosing out on money spent to fill the rooms to the max!

This is ME on a Daaaare during Marius's fun sleepover party that I had the pleasure of being included in because I was fortunate to have won in her decorating contest. This was my funniest and fondest memory as there were alot of very prestigious YOs in attendance and such an honor for me to be there

My favorite memory is playing with my daughter who is now deceased & my grandson who is now grown up. It brought us all closer together.

Cheryl (105278347) wrote:My favourite and most memorable Yoworld memory is getting to meet my lovely Yo Neighbour Lyn from America on a quick stop in London UK en route to a holiday in Spain. We had four hours together in the Capital and this was her first ever time in the UK. We meet at Heathrow Airport early morning and got the Underground to Piccadilly Circus, then walked through Leicester Square (where they have all the big movie Premieres) and Down to Trafalgar Square. Then it was a lovely walk up The Mall to Buckingham Palace and back round to Big Ben and the Parliament Building. Popped round the back to see the River Thames then up past Downing Street and finished off with lunch in a lovely Soho cafe before heading back to the Airport.
If it wasn't for Yoworld we would never have known each other and it was so great to be able to take her to see some of the places either created or mentioned in game. Thank You so much for helping create so many unforgettable memories. :thumbsup:


I thank you so much Cheryl for spending that day with me! It was like we had been friends forever, which we kind of were because of the game. Your generosity with your time and knowledge are one of the best memories of my LIFE. :heart:
