Cartographers / Re: Why is there no tie breaker?
« on: 24/03/21, 11:54am »
There are many excellent games that don't have tie breakers. I've never played the game in question, but many games are more satisfying with ties than declaring a winner due to some arbitrary rule. I look at it this way, if I can't clearly and obviously defeat an opponent, I don't deserve a win.

There are a couple of different issues here. To the original post, we need to be penalized (given a loss) if we leave because games against bots matter with rating. If players weren't penalized, we could just leave instead of losing to improve our rating.

That being said, as Blackshift said, it would be nice to be given 10 minutes or whatever to get back to the game in case the "leaving" is actually a disconnect.

Love the magic potion idea.
Do you think the reward for the daily quests could be displayed? That would be great.

You could play people instead of bots in search of your quest.

Is anyone else going to play? Fuddy duddies. I'll give it a bit more time before revealing the solution. Migrato is fun. See if you can figure this out!

I just thought of something that I thought would be cool as another reward for completing a daily quest--replenishing food. Complete it, top out your food. That would be a nice, no cost bonus.

They're all good. I have a few questions, though. Will everyone's daily quest be the same? If that is the case, I guess I don't like the ones that include training and tutorials.  They're great for people who haven't learned all the games, but they'd be a bore for those who already know how to play. My last comment/question is when does a day begin and end? Hopefully that will be displayed somewhere.

I've been looking forward to this feature. Good work!

Have something cool from a game? Post it here.

I have one--Nickel and Dimes. I have either 5 or 10 game winning streaks for all the games, but I can't figure out how to get the shot in here. It says the file in too big or something like that. When I get it to fit, it can't be seen. Any ideas?

Yay! Someone finally played/answered! Hopefully a few more will follow suit.

Oh, and I forgot to say in the original post that the summary created provides the information needed for all points scored for the game in question. Please play! Get to know the birds of Migrato a little better.

I thought it might be fun to make a little puzzle for the community using Happy Meeple games. Hopefully someone will enjoy it. Maybe it will cause others to come up with puzzles, too. We might be able to learn a few things and have fun doing so. How well do you know Migrato? Let's see.

Bob was the first to get any birds to their destination in Migrato, and earned the minimum number of points for the Brent Geese. Adam's Teals arrived next, getting him three points on the scoreboard. Bob was the next player to successfully land birds, getting an odd number of points for his Black Kites. Adam got the lowest number of points possible when he landed his Black Kites. Bob received the minimum for his Black-Winged Stilts and several turns later scored three for his Teals. Adam got an even number of points for his Bee Eaters.

What was the outcome of the game?
A. Bob won.
B. Bob didn't win.

Please only post your answer with the letter so everyone can have fun. We'll open it up for the solution breakdown and comments in a couple weeks. Enjoy!

I didn't say skill isn't a factor. However, the outcome of Finito is more luck based than any of the other Happy Meeple games by a large margin.
Alas, I haven't gotten that last Meeple yet. It's teased me by letting me get close a couple times. It will be a glorious day if/when it ever comes. It's my last overall Meeple, too.

If you like games of luck, this one's for you. A novice can play the best player in the world and have at least a 30% chance of winning. If you have someone who can't seem to win any game you play and or they get frustrated by that, play this. Also, if you only have three minutes, you can complete one game. Good luck. You'll need it. 

"The only incentives to play, should be the enjoyment a person gets from playing a game, or possibly socializing in a game."

Uhhhh, you're trying to dictate what should be enjoyable for players?! I'm simply suggesting options for players because I understand there are different strokes for different folks.

I don't understand. The Super Meeple suggested doesn't really add anything. Either people want meeples already so they play to get them or they don't.

Actually, I think the Super Meeple applied to my idea is far better. Would everyone want to go for them and the streaks? Of course not. Some would. I know I would. It's cool seeing long streaks for all games on your board.

Also, there's something I think you're missing. When people get all the meeples in a game now, there's no incentive to play it ever again. For example, I will probably never play Finito again after I get my final Meeple. I would think giving people an extra reason to play ALL games would be a good thing for the site. You disagree. Alright. No harm.
