And I’m assuming we can use either island?

Yes, Island 1 or 2... its a crop and harvest season, now that we're safely out of Shark waters.... ;) 👌🥕john deere farm GIF by Anchor Point

That’s a 50 minute game for Utopia though, which is long for that game. The money starts to increase like crazy, and it becomes hard to find places on the islands to put things.  So you wind up spending all your money on fishing boats. I think the sweet spot would’ve been like a 20 or 30 minute game max, if I may provide my opinion there.

Contests are an extra day longer for the two games. So when August closes, you know the farming is done.

How about a 30/45 Gov award challenge like in the manual... it should roll along smoothly.

Yes that sounds much better. So that’s 30 rounds, 45 seconds each right?

Even something like 15/40 is pretty fun. 10 minutes and most of the turns past 15 or 20 are max score anyway.

Its true, we'd be competing for boats, its going to be the Manuals 30-45 seconds selection. It will also be recorded in HSC records too. 30-45 variation.

I would do that too.  Utopia is great, but gotta keep it fairly short.

Thanks :) I saw a few people mention Utopia... and thought about how it can fit in with Worm Whomping :D

 

30 secs goes pretty quick. This will give more time, if we make crops and fish... to try to edge each others scores ;)

But it’s going to be 45 seconds for each round though right, not 30?  30/45?

 

Yes, I meant 45 secs goes quick with the Utopia cursor slowly navigating. Games should complete around 27 mins. I think?

Ok cool. 👍🏻  To be exact, 30 rounds at 45 secs each is 22.5 minutes. 😉

Yes, the fun of playing 45s turns (or faster) is you really have to decide what to do. Fish or build, and don't get too far from your island if you can avoid it. That cursor speed is a killer!

I figured it out eventually, but I did think you were 3-deep talking to yourself for a moment there 🙂

It’s like Inception here at the HSC!

 

And maybe Jacob is trying to mess with me somehow. LOL.
