Yeah, 1 player game select oracle then oracle off, it should show a modern score after the game is over.

This game has never been played in this HSC.

If i'm not scoring it right or if we should use a different game mode let me know :)

I couldn't think of any good side challenges for this month.
Maybe someone here has a good idea for one? :)


I was thinking of this -

Name a song by The Rolling Stones for 1 bonus point

Ishidó was ported to many different systems. Any one of which is sure to bring "Satisfaction". ;)

Damn you StijnDW 😡 what do I have to do to beat you!

 

I used no real strategy as such. My aim was to get rid of as many tiles as possible not expecting to place them all down. Something happened though when I place one of the tiles down, some kind of combo sound played and gave me 50 points. I couldn't even tell you what I did to get that. I think I'll give it another go and try to do better.

 

Well done StijnDW 😉

My score should not represent anything special since it was achieved on my 6th attempt or so.
I always try to set up the board so that a stone in the middle is possible but some luck is involved concerning the order the stones are dealt

 

You can't always get what you want

A serious attempt at this game would involve writing down all the stones already dealt and adapt your strategy accordingly.
But I would not consider that any fun ...

Well-made game, I'm impressed.
I've been stacking up by color in the corners, trying for combos. To get the four-way combo you have to mix up the colors tho. I'm failing at that so far, but I think that's probably what gave you the 50pts, BadPricey :)

1 placement = 1pt.
2-way connect = 2 pts.
3-way = 4pts.
4-way = ??? (50pts?)


edit: "Wild Horses" keep draggin' me away...

ok it's definitely placing a stone in the middle of 4 stones that gives you a bunch of points. I've noticed once it gave me 40 pts., once it gave me 80 pts. so there may be something you can do to make that difference.

 

the 3-way connection I also noticed does this. once I saw it give me 4 pts., once 8 pts.

 

going for the 4-way combos makes the game a lot more complex. I've gotten so I can make 1 or 2 but haven't succeeded in finishing after that.

I've noticed that once I apply a strategy to the game I do not finish it. I think I'll try again later without trying to think too hard about it. 😨
