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.

All right, I've finished stretching, now here's my first effort...

My score exceeded my expectations.  Somewhat illogical, but nevertheless...

 

Play long and prosper.

Update on Wildcard Picks:

 

MrTrust vs Mchetzel

We are 6 picks in with NO MATCH. Each player has picked 6 games and we still don't have a match. I find that amazing!

 

FakeCortex vs DrMooCowz

FakeCortex has submitted his picks waiting on DrMooCowz to submit picks.

If I do not get DrMooCowz pick by Saturday at 7am (EST), then I will randomly pick one of FakeCortex's submitted picks.

 

Thanks!

We have a match!

Mchetzel's 7th pick is Subteranea.

That matches one of MrTrust's picks.

So, SUBERRANEA is the game they will play.

Back to the jungle, baby! It’s all about that end of level bonus. I’m looking forward to seeing those numbers roll up when I finish level 2. So satisfying.

Looking forward to this round @Dr Moocowz! Good luck, and shall we both get new personal bests!

Beat round 2, and boy did my score climb! I died on every large round 2 boulder, but made it through. Died on the round 3 crocs, which go really fast and forced me to dodge most.

Still in round 2 of the game. The gators don't even seem to be worth punching to me at all. I usually end up dying and not worth the mostly 100 point risk to me.

That’s how I felt when we played earlier this season, then I got the hang of it and am now able to kill every one in the first level. In the second one, I sometimes skip a few, depending if I’m in a jam. For the couple times I made it to level 3, the crocs were moving so fast that I was mostly dodging and pulling out the knife for defense. 

 

The manual suggests attacking from below, and that’s my strategy. I start from underneath and to the right, hit the button, and push up. After a bit of practice, I felt much much more confident than I did before. The crazy one that’s worth 300 pts sometimes gets me, but I’ve also avoided it. 

 

The point system is kinda wonky in this game. You’ll always earn points on the vines, boulders (varies), and cannibals, but can avoid points all together in the river. When you finish the level, you get such a huge score boost (3x timer) which is typically more than what you earned in the level. All this said, the points you opt in to (killing crocs and jumping over big boulders for an extra 100 if you’re insane) feel like a small bonus. When it really comes down to it, your score seems to me to be indicative of the level you got to, with some +- variations due to enemies and speed. 

 

I was able to get through the first level pretty fast today with a new high of 19,141. I remember getting to the cannibals with around 7k. The speed bonus was huge and the rest was just garnish, since I usually start level two at 17-18k. I’m second guessing the math on this now, so maybe I had a little more before the bonus. Anyway, I’m not sure if the number of boulders is consistent. I’ll have to do some counting out of curiosity now. 

 

All this to say, the scores are all about surviving the level. We can probably guess where someone finished based on the score. 

 

Ok, I’m tired, nice score, game on! 😴

Apparently, targeting the orange UFOs earns you an extra 5000 points.  I'm also getting the hang of things.  316,500

I forgot how simultaneously fun and frustrating this game can be - especially when you get sniped like 3 times in a row!

Jungle Hunt - 57190

 

The tip about punching gators from below was pretty big, so thank you for that! I also figured out you don't have to punch them in the head like I've thought for... 35 years? 😄  I did manage to get to the 4th loop on this run. I'm not saying I've peaked, but that's going to be tough for me to beat again. I will keep trying!

Holy moly dude! Nice!! I’ve only gotten to loop 3 twice I think and haven’t beaten my score yet. Any tips on making it past the big boulders after the first stage?

I kinda just said "eff it" and went full speed. It actually worked out "most" of the time that I could jump over the big boulders with the right timing. I had way more success with that than trying to duck them.

Just finished playing a whole lot (too much?) and finally beat my score. Still haven’t gotten past the 3rd loop yet. I felt like I got really really lucky on the boulder screens, not getting many large ones and not dying at every one. That’s one thing that bothers me- I would like the amount of each to be consistent. I bet a lot of people like randomness in their games, but for this one, with this specific part, I want to have them predictable. Anyway, happy with a new high, but not satisfied until I win! Hahaha. What a round!

I don't understand, half of the players in the bracket aren't playing.


EDIT: OK, I shouldn't say half of the players.  Rather the players playing Millipede aren't playing.  Nor is my opponent.
