Can we play the game using the B/W switch, the game is easier in b&w for some reason. If not than disregard the 2 scores

With a little help from my 9 year old daughter who would tell me look out Dad there's a black one at the top, or we've got some slow yellow ones at the bottom.

Game 3 - 1,968

 

Since I'm squeezing a game in while we're on vacation, let's pretend these are just participation points and not actually probably the best score I've ever gotten on any variation of Stampede.

Game 8 A/A - 2351

 

Game 3 and Game 8 have to really be handled differently.

 

Scoring in Game 3 is about long-term survival.  This requires working the whole board to keep the cattle on the outsides from pushing the stubbornness envelope.  It's also about waiting at an open lane to the last possible second to see what type of cattle is coming out next before leaving to bump the dark brown steers.  And when there is not time for both, it's time to go and hope.

 

Scoring in Game 8 is all about right now.  it seems better to work the two middle lanes as much as possible to have the best chance of scoring some black angus prime beef.  Eventually the outside lanes get stubborn here, too, but getting to that point means the score is already good and anything else is just gravy.

Game 3 B/B - 5292

 

I just have to say that I've fallen in love with Stampede all over again this week.  I played it like it was 1981 and freshly removed from the box.

 

Everything finally came together in this latest Game 3 effort.  At one point, I had six extra cows.  And I didn't panic when I was closing in on 5000 points.

 

This was the exclamation point on a great week.  :) :thumbsup:
