No scores from anyone all week? Is no one playing, or is everyone struggling to improve their scores?

Me too, a bit much of other things to do and prepare. Besides I doubt I'd improve my position, only secure it in case of latecoming posters.

I made too many mistakes crashing against the walls trying to avoid tax/robbery/goon. At the end, I finished with -8k.

Definitively it's not my game :(

 

However it was great to play it, so finally I understood what was the idea.

:thumbsup:

I suppose the game could be played to lose the most money, you'd still have to accumulate to speculate to lose it :-D

Gave it a try, dodged the tax collector successfully just to run into the robber.... Didn't make it to a final score but having lost all my money it would be clearly negative, around minus 24K'ish.... This is about as exciting as solo monopoly but still interesting what passed as a game as late as 1983. Back then the smooth scrolling and large playfield might have impressed me, but even "Take the Money and Run" on the O2 is more exciting....

I've quite enjoyed it but it took a few goes - there are a few tips on this thread.

 

I played again (properly), risked going to the loan shark got the stocks, waited for ages for them to go up, got beaten up, sold them got to the loan shark with 60K on me (I did feel the pressure) and a final score of $7,358 :-o

Still a few minutes to go but it's almost certainly congratulations to McKong for another HSC win and a thanks for a good pick for the "Something Different" round to fingolfin :thumbsup:  If you missed this game or any others the next round is a chance for catch-up and improve scores :)

Is this the first game in HSC history where you get points for a negative score?
