WILD CARD GAME

The WILD CARD GAME is something new this season.

We have 30 Games so I made 30 slips of paper and put them in a bowl. I made 4 slips that read 'Wild Card'.

 

If the 'Wild Card" slip is chosen the I will PM each player and ask what game (from the remaining games) would they like to play. Each player will NOT know what the other player picked.

If there is NOT a match then I will PM them again. They each select another game from the remaining games. 

Taking into consideration what each player picked the first time (and maybe several other times)....  the first game that comes up a match from ALL the chosen games will be the game they play. (Of note... If I receive 2 matches on the same PM, the First Person who PMs back a match will be the game selected)

 

There is strategy involved... Will you choose a game you are good at? Or pick a game that your opponent sucks at?

 

This is NEW this season and we will see how it goes. If it goes well... All future Medal Bracket Tourneys will work this way.

Everything should be set.

 

Kermit gets the honors of randomly picking a game for my match-up vs ZilchSr.

Kermit... Once you pick the game, please post it here in this thread on Wednesday so I can randomly pick the rest of the games.

 

Thanks!

My random number generator chose #27, which corresponds to "Birthday Mania" as the game Vocelli and ZilchSr will play.

Birthday Mania..... I am so happy. 🤬

Lol. I am at least at excited about you pulling dishaster out of the hat for me.

 

Question: What happens in these medal rounds if both players hit rollage?  Not sure if 300k will be as easy with 10 plates, but I am curious as to how a "tie" is handled.

Then BOTH players advance.

 

Not mad about Birthday Mania... I will just treat it as a SCHMUP with bad hit detection.

Congo Bongo (1 B/B): 91,190

 

Great score @toiletunes.  Looks like I have some work to do this week. Getting the hang of this slowly.

Dishaster: 17120

 

There is definitely more challenge to this game keeping 10 plates going and there is less thumb cramping because the game doesn't last as long.  With all that said, I'm still not a fan.

 

I will be playing more tonight and tomorrow.  I will post an update tomorrow if my score improves.

Just a little more finesse with fish jumping, and I'll be there...

Dishaster: 27090

 

The good news: I've improved my score and am pretty consistently doing better than the score I posted yesterday.

 

The bad news: I'm still less than 10% the way to rollage, meaning that I have to keep playing this game and have that out-of-tune circus jingle stuck in my head all week.

 

I'm on a road trip, so I'm not sure when I'll be able to play again or post an improved score between now and August 8th.

Am struggling to find time to play at the moment, but should be able to have a decent run Wednesday. I haven't got past three chevrons in my brief goes so far. 

 

Given that I only got to four chevrons in the main run, I think that captain will probably be more than enough for you to win. I will however be doing all I can to better my score and change that 😄

Now, it's just a matter of finding the time and having the patience. Waiting for the coconuts to fall in the right pattern before moving, stuff like that.

Congo Bongo (1 B/B): 198,280

 

Went to Congo Bongo hunting school over the weekend and getting more consistent.  

 

When playing this earlier in the season did not like it much but now appreciating its' mechanics.
