pince isn't basement, it's cellar. Basement is alagsor. Is this mistake going to keep reappearing throughout the entire thing?

I'm afraid so. One more thing to keep reporting.
But it could be argued, I think, that the line between "basement" and "pince" is somewhat blurred, perhaps incorrectly.

One would never store wine in the 'basement...' Does it actually do any good to report things?

Absolutely. I have reported tons of things and seen a significant improvement already. But those people do have lives, too.

Oh, and I will start digging a cellar tomorrow. :)

I didn't know the difference (and I'm a native English speaker!) but this may be of interest to others: http://theydiffer.com/difference-between-cellar-and-basement/

Why isn't "vagy" accepted?

My example didn't have "vagytok" as an option to fill in the blanks. I am not sure how to "pass" this level without it, lol.
