Very sorry to hear this.
I wish you guys good luck.

I think maybe you are right.
It would make sense.

Thanks for the reply.   :D

... that you join a game in the INN, wait a while, and suddenly you get a message that says:

Match cancelled or terminated

This just happened twice in a row (against the same player).
Was the player somehow able to not join the game (even though they opened the table)?
Or did they disconnect?

Whenever I've opened a table, and someone joins the game, I've never been offered the choice to back out of the game.
So I'm baffled when every now and then this occurs.

Much appreciate anyone who can shed some light on this.

It looks like they are up and running again!
Thank you

(But I'm curious, what in the world happened to make them stop?)

Thanks Marlene for the heads-up! And sorry for not replying earlier.

Anybody else agreeing?

Today there are 5 people at the top of the ranking. Is it possible that it is always the same 5 people there, players that do all quests every day? Then it would give the impression that nothing changes.


Yesterday, or the day before yesterday, Petra (who is another one of the 5 at the top of the quest rankings) also noticed it.
He made a post in the INN chat:

1d Petra S.
Hallo does anyone know why there were no points for the daily quest yesterday and the day before yesterday

Jimmy, at the start of each Quest Day, everyone's score drops due to the oldest score falling off, and no one having done the new one.

But for several days now, the top 5 people in the ranks have had a score of 282.    It never drops.
I have completed the daily quest each of these days, and gotten the notification that I completed it.
But my score never goes up.

I can't speak for the entire list, but I'm familiar with the top 5, and none of their scores have gone either up or down.  Normally all of our scores first go down, and then over the course of the day most will go up again.

I'm not sure about the rewards.  for some reason, today, I got the impression that the coins did not go up  BUT I have not checked the coin amount before completing the quest.  So I could be completely wrong about this.  I hope to remember to check it tomorrow.

Thanks for looking into this.

I think we are now up to day 4 of no change to the rankings for the Daily Quest.

For the past two day the rankings for the daily quest have not been updated.
When you complete the Daily Quest, the board acknowledges that, and pays out the reward.
At least I think it pays out the reward.  I haven't checked my before and after.
Perhaps it would be more accurate for me to say that the announcements say I have earned the reward.

Yesterday I mentioned it in the Inn chat and I did send in a note by way of that pencil icon, but have not yet received a response.
So I figured I should post here so the whole matter does not get lost.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

An attention grabbing warning sounds like a good idea.

Maybe also, if the person is completing the last game they need to complete the daily when the clock turns over, they get credit for the game that was begun before it ran out.

I just completed a game with a bot.  It ended in a draw.
I began the game with a 1517 rating vs his 1521.
Because his rating was slightly higher than mine, I received a +0.1 reward for my effort.

However, my new "upgraded" rating is now listed as 1516!

I do realize that my initial rating must have been rounded up from 1516.xx.  But for it to round up to 1517, it had to have been at least 1516.5.
So how in the world would the new (at minimum) 1516.6 round down to 1516?

Obviously this is a pretty insignificant matter, and I have no major or minor concerns about it.  But I do have an abiding curiosity as to how in the world this could happen.
If you have a bit of free time on your hands, or are bored and looking for a puzzle, it would give me great pleasure to understand the obscure and obviously magical formula that could lead to these results.

Thank you for your time and attention. 

Cartographers / Re: Wall of shame

Multiple times.

I learn, then a couple days later I'm studying the board for the best move I can find, suddenly the clock is flashing red, and out of the corner of my eye, I see a great place.

Then I watch in horror as my Great City score drop to zero.


I came here for Cartographers, but Glastonbury is growing  on me - it's a neat little game.

Glastonbury is a fine game.  I've played and enjoyed it many times.

But these days I am intrigued (seduced/obsessed/driven to the brink of insanity) by Cartographers and want to play that.
Given they are both pretty expensive games, it's horribly disappointing to end up in the wrong one, and have all your food knocked to smithereens.

Probably if it weren't for the fact that we have to have food to be able to play, then it wouldn't make much difference whether I landed in a Glastonbury by mistake.  I'd just play the Glaston and then play Carto next.

But when it means I probably can't play the game I want for an hour, or the rest of the night, if its late.  Then it matters a whole lot.

I realize HM is using the cover design from the games.  But maybe it would be possible to make the Glaston color a bit lighter, and the Carto color a bit darker.    Something so they are not so much alike.
Or maybe if the colors can't be changed, a warning pops up telling the person this is Glaston.  Is this the game you want?  (or Carto in case someone prefers Glaston)

This is the second time I joined a Glastonbury by mistake. 

I enter the Inn see an open table for what on first glance looks like Cartographers.  I jump in as quickly as I can, because once the Europeans log out for the night, it's very hard to get a game.

I jump in and discover I have just wasted 10 food on a game I don't want to play.  My food is so low, that even if I go view an ad, I still won't have enough food for the game I want.

As I said, this is the second time it has happened to me.  I am frustrated.  There is nothing I can do here that I want to do.
So I have to leave.

Very discouraging.

Thanks for your quick response, and your explanation.
Your explanation does make sense.  I was soooo baffled when I saw that!

I did screen shot it.  But the site won't take my screen shot because the file is too big.  I don't know how to make it small enough to upload.  My file in a png file.   Would it get smaller if I just saved it as some other kind of format?
(meaning, if I "re-saved as" to a different file type?  - and if so, what file type would be small enough?)

Around 4:00 AM NE US time, I went to the Inn and saw what appeared to be someone playing Hanamikoji against themself.

Mocha Y. was playing vs Mocha Y.

How in the world can this happen??

I attempted to attach a screenshot, but it might have been too large a file.   
I don't know how to reduce it.  If someone can instruct me how to make my png file fit, or how to convert it to something that will fit, I would much appreciate it.
