/___NSpan's 500th Post___/

Post by NSpan on Fri Mar 27, 2009 5:09 am

here's a game me and aly have been playin the last few days... the idea is to beat the computer by having the most armies at the end of the game.. you take turns placing pieces.. they're numbered from 1-20.. any piece placed adjacent to a lower-numbered enemy piece will capture it.. any piece placed adjacent to friendly pieces will fortify them (adding 1 army to each)..

the game seems tricky at first, but you get the hang of it after a couple of tries.. currently, my high score is 2350.. Aly is beating me with a score of 2740.. (the score is calculated at the end of the game, taking into account the number of armies each player has, the number of territories, and how much of a lead you won with...... assuming you won)..

go ahead and choose "Quick Start" from the main menu:


the game is a bit lacking on the audio, so here's a cool Brian Jonestown Massacre song to accompany you:

we're catching these guys live in April..


if anyone was expecting something EXTRA special for my 500th--well, too bad.. i'm super busy finishing up my undergrad studies.. i just started a new job... AND we're about to move... yikes..

It's 1982. Everyone is playing Atari, watching M*A*S*H and the number one movie in the nation is Conan The Barbarian.

'82 is a fine year. If Conan wasn't enough for you, there was also The Beastmaster.. Rambo I and Rocky III are there for anyone who wants a more modern take on big muscles and men barely capable of monosyllabic conversation. If you didn't want to just PLAY Atari, you wanted to live it: Tron also came out this year. General paranoia is on the rise with the advent of The Thing. Screaming "KHAAAAAAAAAAAAN" is the equivalent of the latest internet meme. Stoners rejoice with the film-adaptation of The Wall. Soon-to-be stoners flock to The Last Unicorn. A few lucky people are introduced to Ash, albeit in a whinier and less smarmy version, with The Evil Dead. The first of many iterations of Blade Runner hits theaters. Oh, and most importantly, NSpan is born.

truly a fine year.

... And just to top it off, it was the year that silversurfer19 was born. A very significant year it was.

2670 after a few tries. I have noticed that sometimes the computer gets way better tiles. One game at the end he had seven 20 tiles and I had 3. That was before they were added by reinforcements. The game I got that score he still had 2 more 20s than me.

weird.. (according to the official website) the developer said that the player and the computer get EXACTLY the same tiles (albeit in random order).. so, if that's true, you should've been dealt the same number of 20s.. you sure the Compy ain't reinforcing his 19s when you aren't paying attention?

I will play a few today and keep track of them.

Of course I may just be paranoid.

But as the famous quote goes "Just because you are paranoid doesn't mean they are not out to get you."

3370. Woohoo.

And I kept track for three games (even writing them down, have two post its full). We did not get the same amount of 20 point tiles in 2 of the three. 3 to 2 and 5 to 3 in favor of the comp. I would like to graph out every tile for every game over 15 or so games and see what kind of tiles I get on average. But I think I am waaaayyy too lazy for that. LOL
