2020/04/30 Various changes

In the game page, the message timestamps were not displayed anymore in the chats. This is now corrected.

In the Daily Meeple, all clickable lines generate a light sound. Same thing in the profile page, links generate a sound.

Guests are no longer able to see game stats and game history. They need to register first (it takes 20 seconds).

Some anti-spam measures are put in place to avoid automated account creation.

2020/05/28 Replay feature

All matches that have been recorded (online games only) are now available to replay. To access the feature, click on a player's profile, then look at their game history. A small arrow pointing right is shown next to the screenshot icon. Click on the arrow and then choose the player you want to watch playing! This will lead you to the game in replay mode
In the replay interface, you can move one move at a time, or 2, 4, 12. You can also ask to play the game till the end.
There is not "Move back" button. To go back, you'll need to change the move you want to go to and click on OK. This will replay the game quickly until the point you want to reach.
At any point, you can change the speed of the replay. If you go from very slow to fast, please give one second or two to the interface to complete the latest animation at slow speed before the rest is played faster.
You need to be logged in to replay a match.
Older games have been recorded.
Replaying games is free, but this may change over time.

The navigation buttons have a new color scheme. Let us know if this makes reading difficult.

On the game page, there is now a home button to get to the menu page more easily. Mostly useful in tutorial and training modes.

2020/06/01 Screenshots for all games

Screenshots are now available for all games. Migrato, Glastonbury and Siberia card were added.

We made all cards of Glastonbury lighter so that the illustrations are easier to distinguish. You may need to hit Ctrl-F5 to force a refresh of the images. If not, the update may take up to 30 days to be displayed on your browser.

We also changed the way the game page is structured a bit. Let us know if you see anything unusual.

2020/06/03 Various improvements

A "Rules of the game" button is now available on each game menu making it easier to access these rules (they are still accessible from the game page too).

The cookie consent window has been updated to accomodate more languages. As a result you have to give consent again. Sorry about the inconvenience. Nothing has changed.

Finito and Level X pages now show the name and picture of the new version of the game (GPS and Mountain Goats).

In games with small windows, the 3rd column did not display where it should. Instead it was showing below the game board. This is now corrected.

We added a "Match replay" button to the list of options displayed at the end of an online match. This way, you can analyze the game immediately with a single click. Former "Replay" and "Replay (same opponent" buttons are reworded to "Play again" and "Play again (same opponent)" to avoid any confusion.

German translations are updated and complete.

50% of the players will see a new font.
50% of the players will see the old button color scheme.
This is part of our A/B testing process to see what is best for our players. The new font has given good results on the home page and we are now trying it in the menu and game pages.

2020/10/06 Release of Cartographers

The award-winning game Cartographers has just been released on the platform.

Special features:
- the game is 2-player only for the moment.
- there is no AI for this game.
- the training mode offers 12 fixed configurations (one for each bot). The bots get special rules (basically extra points) to compensate for their bad play. So in essence, the training mode, while still a 2-player game, is more of a solo game. Its function is to let you familiarise with the 16 edict cards (while having a score to beat). Each edict appears 3 times in the training mode, at different timings (early or late).
- you will need to find a human opponent to play in the online mode. We recommend using the link associated with your table to invite players who are not logged in.
- the first 20 online games are rewarded with 6 rating points each (this is also a consequence of the absence of bots: they are not here to seed the rankings, we need to compensate this to get comparable ratings).
- the game has options to speed up animations (cards or/and scoring).

We are very happy to offer the possibility to play Cartographers online.

Have fun!

2020/10/15 Clock in simultaneous play

For Finito and Cartographers, where the players play simultaneously, the clock display stopped after you moved, so you could not see the opponent's remaining time.
This is now fixed.
Nothing was broken before. The display was only somewhat misleading (some players thought things were not quite right and felt the need to refresh the page to get the clock going again).
As a result of the fix, we noticed that if you play a move then refresh the page, the timer will not display the correct value (it will display too much, having basically reset at the time you played). This will be fixed as soon as the server is restarted (which be not be soon).

The mountains in Cartographers were not properly updated on the opponent's board. This is now fixed.

Magic Potion is now glowing on players' name on the game page and in the ranking lists.

Bots now speak "101" again. For a while they showed English instead.

2020/10/26 Replay feature

Some player information were not correctly reported (Magic Potion, etc.) and displayed the logged player's info instead. This is fixed.
FYI, the meeple of the player, the Magic Potion of the player and the name of the player shown are the current ones, while the rating displayed is the one at the time the match was played.
A tiny glitch in the inn (Magic Potion display) is now fixed.

2020/10/26 Screenshots on IE11

IE 11 does not behave like the other browsers. Because of this, the screenshots did not work properly (or at least generated Javascript errors). We have now made the necessary changes and everything should now be fine.
In general, we would advise not to use Internet Explorer which has a history of not following standards. It has certainly improved a lot over the years but it is not quite there yet. We understand Edge is better. Chrome is our preferred browser as the website is developed on it and thus there should not be any unknown glitch on Chrome.

2020/12/16 HexRoller release

After Cartographers in October, our 13th game HexRoller has been released. It is a nice quick-playing 'Roll & Write' game.
It is offered as a solo game and comes with a series of challenges exactly like for Raging Bulls. The challenges have been designed specifically for Happy Meeple.
We hope you will like HexRoller.
The complete rules of the game are available on the HexRoller rules pages.
