Yes I play on the International Version under the same name. Always happy to help out new players - you would be surprised what a polite email will do!
At the moment I am just playing and enjoying the novelty of starting from scratch as it has been about two and a half years since I started playing this game.
I do have a very busy real life so please don't get upset if I don't reply to you straight away. I hope everyone has fun on this new version, and I sincerely hope that a lot of the challenges faced on the international version do not materialise here!
