Re: Triplechain

TH10 is a really good player. I don't think he has been around long but he seems to have figured this game out pretty fast.

Agreed. I played some HU timed against him yesterday where he used some non-standard strategies and beat me pretty badly.

+1. He used his sorcery to smoke me in a ~10-1 run at one point during the prop bet last week. My rating took a beating.

Re: Triplechain

I've been using voodoo instead of sorcery up until now, but I'm open to new strategies.

Re: Triplechain

TH10 is really good, but I managed to go like 15-2 against him HU at one stretch during the challenge.

Re: Triplechain

If anyone is in the mood to play around with a small feature that I'm the process of adding, go to http://triplechain.net/free_move

It's an open board with no placement restrictions and all dice available. It's still pretty rough, but should be functional. Just a couple things to note:

- to remove a die from the board, drag it to the gray square on the left
- "new game" doesn't work yet. If you hit new game, back, then refresh you'll get a clear board though.

Re: Triplechain

wow haven't played TC in a while now but opened it up for the freeplay thing, then said what the hell and played the daily challenge. Made a few small mistakes, but now I'm somehow sitting in first.

HOLD!

Re: Triplechain

aha

before the changes, if you went first in the DC, it would add +1 to your DC wins even if the day was not over
I guess Zac fixed that.

Re: Triplechain

question: how much difference would it make if all chains (of length 2+ or dice numbering 3 and above) were scored instead of only 3?

I'm thinking not a huge amount (beyond the name being nonsensical) since there's so much of a premium on making snakes.

Re: Triplechain

I played a decent challenge today, but I donīt think it will hold for long - much better scores are possible

radisto has announced he will quit playing triplechain!?!?!

Re: Triplechain

At least you managed a decent performance. I have managed one last place and about 5 not quite last places recently.

It would make hardly any difference. Even the third chain doesn't add much to your score most of the time and there isn't a way to make 4 chains that all score highly.
