This page serves as an F.A.Q. (frequently asked questions) by new players and old players alike.
The Choices App has tested out various "Daily Diamonds" frequencies before setting on its current "Five Diamonds Every 22 Hours" formula. This is noted on the App by the gift icon located at the bottom right corner, which turns orange when the timer has finished counting down from 22 hours. As of January 21, 2021, this "Five Diamonds Every 22 Hours" formula has changed and now has been incorporated into the "Challenges" listed below. Players can still earn 1 Diamond for the Daily Check-In, but the Diamond for Ad watching has been reduced from 5 Diamonds (4 Ads) to 3 Diamonds (3 Ads).
In addition, a player can gain six diamonds for ending six chapters per day. The time this "day" resets depends on the player's location. Because Pixelberry's main office is in California, USA, it operates on GMT-7 during Daylight Savings Time (Pacific Daylight Time) from March 8, 2020 to November 1, 2020; and GMT-8 during Standard Time (Pacific Standard Time) from November 1, 2020 to March 14, 2021.
The Daily Reset occurs at 16:00 PST (which is midnight GMT); and at 17:00 PDT (which is midnight GMT). At this point, if the player ends a chapter (other than Chapter One), they should receive a pop-up ad that asks to play an ad. After watching the ad, the player gains a diamond. A maximum of six ads can be watched to earn six diamonds. If ending a chapter reveals a white-out screen, the ad will fail to load and the diamond cannot be earned with that chapter. If an error-message occurs (for example, "unable to load ad"), it is possible that all potential ads have played and the game will not allow you to earn extra diamonds. This can occur if the player diligently watches ads / gains diamonds every day without pause. If this happens, it is suggested that if the player backs-up his/her data with a Facebook account and launches the app on a different device (for example, switching from an Android device to an iPad, or vice versa), the player may be able to view new ads specific for the device and gain the daily diamond allotment.
Finishing new chapters gives 2 diamonds per chapter. These 2 diamonds are separate from the daily-diamond-for-watching-an-ad diamond. Technically, if a player finishes a new chapter after the daily reset time and has not finished six chapters yet, they could earn 2 + 1 ad diamond for the chapter.
Thus, on days where there are no new chapters released, a player can earn 11 diamonds. On days where one new chapter is released, a player can earn 13 diamonds. And on days where two new chapters are released, a player can earn 15 diamonds.
VIP is a paid subscription model that Pixelberry launched on July 21, 2020 after seven months of previous beta testing (which began in December 2019 and concluded with the official launch). During the beta test, three books were released under the VIP header (which is categorized as Early Access): With Every Heartbeat (released weekly starting December 19, 2019, concluding on March 26, 2020), Hot Couture (released weekly starting December 19, 2019, concluding on March 26, 2020), and A Very Scandalous Proposal (released weekly starting February 5, 2020, concluding on May 14, 2020). After the launch date, The Unexpected Heiress debuted on July 22, 2020. Pixelberry has continuously said that these books will be released to the general audience (non-VIP status) eventually but they have not said when that will occur. With Every Heartbeat was slated to be released in Spring 2020 but due to the pandemic, its release was cancelled and pushed to January 2021.
The beta test of the VIP subscription model differed between players. One subscription was $5 per week for 10 daily diamonds (in addition to the 5 daily diamonds) and unlimited keys, as well as 4 diamonds after each new chapter (up from 2 diamonds). Some players noted $5/week, $7/week, $10/week, $16/month, $20/month costs. The week subscription appeared to have a 70 bonus diamonds gift whereas the month subscription appeared to have a 270 bonus diamonds gift.
The official VIP subscription model is slightly modified from its beta version. It is now at the monthly rate of:
|$14.99 USD||15.99-16.49 EUR||1350 INR||14.49 GBP||209000 IDR|
|78.99 BRL||23.99-24.49 AUD||67.99 MYR||1600 Yen||P750|
|299-335 MXN||26.99-27.49 NZD||1300 BDT||348000 VND||429.99 CZK|
- There may be a 0.50 difference between Android vs iOS devices.
- one time 185 diamonds bonus
- 10 daily diamonds bonus
- unlimited keys
|Access||Daily Diamonds||Daily Diamonds Bonus||Daily Chapters||New Chapter Bonus|
|non-VIP||💎 4||none||💎 6||💎 2 each|
|VIP||💎 4||💎 10||💎 6||💎 4 each|
Thus, on days where there are no new chapters released, a player can earn up to 20 diamonds. On days where one new chapter is released, a player can earn up to 24 diamonds. And on days where two new chapters are released, a player can earn 28 up to diamonds.
Editors should not remove categories that say Early Access, even if the VIP book eventually becomes available to the general public. This includes:
- Early Access
- Early Access Walkthrough
- Characters Part of Early Access Stories
- Groups Part of Early Access Stories
On or around July 8, 2020, Choices launched "Challenges" to earn more diamonds. These challenges were in beta test-mode as only a limited number of players had received them and it had not been rolled out to the general population. As of January 21, 2021, Choices has released Challenges to all players with its newest update.
The challenges and rewards are as follows. When a challenge is completed, it may be replaced by a different and possibly "harder" challenge to complete. Some tasks are daily and some tasks are one-time challenges. With the Challenges implemented, Daily Ads have been reduced from 5 to 3.

Previous beta test challenges and rewards fluctuated between players.
Beta Test (No Longer In Effect)
The Royal Romance Beta Test
The Royal Romance, Book 1's beta test was also available to a small market beginning on or around November 1, 2019. It appeared that it was for new players (usually with a device that had never had the app before) in certain locations as well. They had only revised the first 5 chapters, rearranging certain scenes and moving the Corgi from Book 2 to Chapter 4 - as a gift from Prince "Liam" instead of Maxwell Beaumont.
It is possible that the beta test has stopped. As of June 2020, the book has updated to include costumes worn by the characters in the beta test but dialogue and plot has remained the same.
The Chat stories were released around September 2017 and were also a test released to a small group of players. Not much information is known about them. Their game mechanics seem to have issues with coding. Only a few have been recorded for view on YouTube by Izzay Plays and Crazzy Plays.
