Lost Cities / Re: Bot order out of order?

Why does Saboteur have a lower score than Lechebot even though the former comes after the latter? Same question with Bot-dog and Botiful. Or are those scores only for lost cities?
some bots may fit human's style better than others and also some bots may have a different set of opponents (bot #4 will play a lot of beginners, while bot #5 even if a bit stronger will face somewhat more experienced players).

Other board games / Re: [Dominion]

Dominion is a popular game by Donald X. Vaccarino released in 2008. It inaugurated the genre "Deck-building" where players repeatedly buy new cards to add to their deck.

On each turn, players draw 5 cards from their deck and play them. After a few rounds, the player's deck is empty. All his cards are then reshuffled (including the previously purchased ones). This way, the player steadily builds his deck (representing his kingdom) which becomes more and more powerful as the game progresses.

I personally recommend strongly Dominion. There has been many spin-offs since Dominion was released but it is still considered as the best "deck-building" game by many. It has many expansions which helps in that regard too.
Takes dozens of games before you start wanting an expansion. The game is easy to learn and one of the quicker board games out there. It's definitely in my top 10.

Lost Cities / Re: Glitch in scoring for Lost Cities?
« on: 15/10/19, 02:28pm »
There is very definitely a problem with scoring in Lost Cities. In the game I just played I had in Red:

$$$2-5-6-8-9-10

The computer gave me 100 points. This is definitely incorrect. the numbers total 40. 40x4= 160.
160 plus the 20 point bonus is 180. The program shorted me by 80 points! (I did win anyway however jiofi.local.html tplinklogin is it down :)

Are you aware of this glitch?
Ahhhh, my missing 80 points! How I will miss them, wherever they may be!

Lost Cities / Re: Best of 3?
« on: 15/10/19, 02:28pm »
In the real life game the scoring is a running total of 3. That removes some of the element of luck my ip birthday wishes tneb.

Would it be possible to have that at least as an option here along with summary of each round scores at the end? Your competitor has this along with better community. I prefer the user interface here though except for the lack of replay options that the other one has implemented ok (to fast forward takes too long so not perfect).
It would be a great addition, but I am not sure how to implement it within the existing framework.
