Heart Triplechain

For the puzzle maniacs under you: this game is a must. It is a very simple, yet very deep game. It is a very quick game - just a couple of minutes to complete it.

You play 1-2 games and you understand the rules
You play 10-20 games and you have found a decent strategy
You play 100-200 games and every time you find ways to optimize, adjust and tune your play.

The gameīs website is here

The game was invented by zac777 and introduced in this 2+2 thread here.

There are different modes of play:
  • Normal
  • Advanced, in which you can manipulate throws. You will be able to manipulate more if you play more, gain more points and move up in player level.
  • Timed, real time multiplayer mode with chat. 3 minutes per game and everyone faces the same 9 throws, trying to outscore each other. Very challenging. My favorite mode.
  • Daily challenge, in which everyone can participate and try and make the maximum score with a fixed sequence of throws. Find the path to the topscore and beat the rest of the world. I try and find a moment every day to compete in the daily challenge (currently 14 wins )

You will need to create an account to play advanced, timed or the daily challenge.

An utterly sick strat post was made by Dynasty here. Donīt read this until you have played at least 10-20 games.

Re: Triplechain

Cool game. Got up to around 12k before getting mass 2s for the middle spots which killed my bonus.

Re: Triplechain

lol. I'm sure gabe didn't mean anything insulting by that.

Fun game regardless, hit 20k with only 3 chains, two of them being 16 and 24

Re: Triplechain

i got 26k early, then regressed, then began to understand that i'd have to stop just clicking pseudorandomly and think about game dynamics/strategy in order to improve, so quit

Fun game.

Re: Triplechain

34k is not bad at all.
Even if you play perfectly, you will get 34K in less than 1/10 games, I think.

Why not?

You want 1s, 2s and 6s preferably. Anything else is suboptimal.

Annoyingly addictive.

Lucked into a 34740 just now, but no pic so it clearly didn't happen.

Re: Triplechain

Jay I won the daily challenge yesterday.
I f*cked up todays challenge. My main chain is 2 too short and I misplayed the bonus.

Re: Triplechain

Won a timed challenge vs gabe and zac so I'm happy with that.

I think one of my leaks might be going for too strong of a third chain. Looking at people's top scores one of the main themes is a small third chain. That might just be due to the variance of needing to get a bunch of 6s in a row to rake in the points. It's a completely different game if you're playing for high score or max EV too. If I'm just trying to get on the leaderboard I'm just gonna place my pieces hoping for a perfect roll. When playing the challenge or timed games there is a bit more subtlety.

You should have figured them out in max 3 games.

Made 40K today in a daily challenge vs zac and ibavly. Thatīs pretty rare. After that ibavly striked back pretty hard, having 40K with 2 dice to place (unfortunately for him, these were two 1s that messed up his bonus). He still won though. Pretty good for a newcomer to beat two experienced players in Timed.
