Don't know how I did it, but I kicked Checker's butt. Wow. Not the best score here, but I'm pretty happy with myself :D It's a pretty good feeling when you have the computer on the ropes and it just keeps moving its only free piece back and forth as you get closer 😎

 

Checker: 12

Checkers score update! I think I'm getting a little better at this game, though this will probably be my last score update for the round since I feel like I've pretty much reached the limits of my skill in all the games being played this time around. That's alright though, I'm satisfied with my scores. :)

 

Bonus

Checkers: 6

Frogs & Flies (A/A)  -  40

Checkers (Game 1)  -  6

 

If there was ever a game that made me doubt what little skill I have, Checkers would be the one!! Glad I finally beat it and glad I don't have to play it again!

Frogs: 24

Picnic:  4260

 

I think I need to be the fly instead of the frog.  The fly usually gets away.  My frog is usually hungry.

Better score at Kool-Aid Man: 29,800

 

Also, since it apparently went unnoticed, I defeated the computer at Checkers with nine men remaining (Kings count as two.)

Picnic-7200

Avoided this like crazy, didn't expect much from myself...

This was my first attempt.

:D

Not a bad game at all, I think I need to read the manual tho, there's something I don't think I quite "get" about catching the flies or something after you swat them.

Biggest thing with most paddle games, you have to find the "center", then pretty much lock your fingers on the paddle, you can't let it go momentarily, you won't likely still be centered properly.

Don't get me wrong, I scrambled out a win, I'm prolly not the best advice...

 

I had to outright sacrifice a few pieces at first, one for one, forcing the AI to jump me, then me being able to jump it back, until there was enough room to sneak one thru and get a King-the A.I. doesn't seem committed to getting Kings, it's mostly sticking to a defensive strategy, I guess, so you'll likely get a King much faster than the computer, and you can do a little damage with it, then figure out how to trap the leftover pieces, IMO the A.I. seemed to "give up" after it was in a bad spot, no offense whatsoever.

 

Good Luck!!!

Man, this game makes me feel inferior just thinking about it. But I second the comments above. Also, the computer is really good at using the "must jump" rule to its advantage. It baits you into having to jump it and sets itself up for a double jump, or even worse, jumping your king. So think a few moves ahead, don't get discouraged, and don't feel bad hitting reset early on if it's not going your way. I don't have much luck setting up double jumps for myself, but I have been able to trap a few of its pieces. It's a nice "got you!" moment :D
