Re: Triplechain

Yeah goose egg on normal is easy, I managed it on my second attempt.

I drew with people on timed twice out of about 10 games yesterday.

Haven't got very far on advanced yet but I can only afford a few rubbish abilities so it doesn't play that differently to normal.

Re: Triplechain

My guess is that advanced really starts to play different when you can buy no 3s for 11 points.

Re: Triplechain

In general, I don't think no 3's is all that helpful. 4s become the new 3s and you get tons of bonus tiles and it makes it hard to get a max bonus.

Maybe if you are fine wading through a ton of ****ty games with the hope of spiking the one huge one.

dis

playing advanced to get a topscore is basically waiting until you get the magic roll (and not screwing it up, of course).

I got bored with it pretty quickly.

Re: Triplechain



This is so unfair. If I get 2s instead of 1s I finish the game with 41525 points, this way I have 11325 points.

Re: Triplechain

Derwipok: maybe you missed a great score, but you made snake charmer, which is pretty great

Is it me or is triplechain.net down?

Sorry, it was down for about an hour this afternoon. Not a major problem though - should be fine now.

oh snap



actually misplayed the last two pieces as a result of being pissed off, should have been ~22k or so i think. Might even have scored more by foregoing the snake charmer but salvaging the bonuses, not sure

Re: Triplechain

yeah, the middle 4 on the right and the bottom 2 need to be switched. Two more bonus and 4-chain one longer.

I dont think placing a 2 in the middle square improves your score.

The real error in the play is the placing of the initial 2s. If you get 4 2s in the first 4 racks you should not connect them.

Re: Triplechain

not sure why the pair of twos is connected on the LHS - it certainly came about because the leftermost was in the fourth rack, but even then it's hard to see what the alternatives can have been that i couldn't stick it in somewhere else (especially given the layout of the 6s)
