Gold, Magic potion / Re: Tips to get more gold
« on: 29/01/22, 04:10am »
Remember to click on the card at the bottom of the screen when you log in and every ten minutes or so, since it recharges.  Sometimes it gives you gold directly.  Sometimes it gives you building materials that can either be used in their own right or sold for gold.

Really bad with phones.  Hex Roller seems to have it better as it takes steps to make a move.

Cartographers / Re: Cartographers Tournament!

I got an invitation to a “challonge”.  Is that just a misspelling of “challenge” or am I being trucked into clicking on a link unrelated to the tournament?

Happy Meeple community / Re: Feature requests

I would like to be able to do more with victory points.  Maybe modify other buildings than the houses (like the castle)?  Maybe trade in 4 houses for a hotel, like Monopoly, and modify that?  Maybe put something in the water?

Happy Meeple community / "handshake draw"?
« on: 14/03/21, 03:53pm »
Since we have a "white flag" button for resigning a game, could there be installed a "handshake" button such that, if both people click on it, they agree to call the game a draw (similar to chess)?  I have just played a game of Finito where it seemed obvious early on that we would draw, but we had to play it out since neither of us wanted to resign the game.  Maybe not a big deal (Finito is fairly fast) but just something to consider.

Circle The Wagons / Re: A Cautionary Tale

Too bad one of the rewards was not for the smallest town.  You would have scored better!  :)

I dunno.  Would the reward be revoked if you won a new house and thus no longer had all your houses fully upgraded?

I would rather have a way to upgrade the "permanent buildings" like the castle.

Finito / Re: FAQ - Finito rules
« on: 15/02/21, 12:36am »
Isn't that a function of the relative scores of the players at the beginning of the game, and so similar for all games (Finito or otherwise)?  I don't think it has anything to do with the "game score" (so winning finito with 7/0 or winning finito with 2/0 won't make a difference to how many points you get, but a 1600 player beating a 1700 player will get more points than a 1600 player beating a 1200 player).

I am playing on an iPhone SE (small and old). Zoom helps but I have to do it each move. And yes, sometimes when I don’t Zoom, the shape shifts when I hit the green ✅.

A delay might help. I was thinking of the extra step you have in hexroller so that the ✅ is not so close to the shape itself.

Cartographers / Adding an “are you sure?” feature?
« on: 31/12/20, 10:14pm »
I have noticed that when playing on my phone the pieces shift over just as I hit the green checkmark  ✅.  Would it be possible to add some “are you sure?” confirmation step to cartographers  like you have in hex roller?

Bots are horrible conversationalists.   :D

Cartographers / Re: Best Broken Road?
« on: 16/12/20, 06:57am »
I did it!  33 points for a perfect broken road on all 11 diagonals.  I didn't even have a chasm to rely on!  I lost the game mind you because I got single minded about this goal.  My opponent got a great great city!  And never mind the monsters in my top right corner.    They have their side of the map and I have mine.  :D

Cartographers / Non-standard personal objectives
« on: 04/12/20, 05:02am »
I finished a board with no trees!  And I only lost by six points.  My sentinel wood was zeroed but my mages valley was spectacular!  ;D

Cartographers / Re: Wall of shame

Got another.  I was in winter before I realized that the goal was the Golden Granary rather than Mage’s Valley.

Can Cartographers be added to the daily quest roster?
