Yes, thanks! I’ll edit the rules to make that clear.

@Doodat @LegacyofEight @spccsc

How do we want to communicate strategy? How do you start a PM like GreatErenan sent us? I can’t figure it out. Is that the best way?

I enjoyed this. I would play again. I also would run it, if @TheGreatErenan wanted to play.

Did Flarp55 miss the deadlines, or was he just being way too frugal?

I want to upload my spreadsheet for this game so that you can all see the exact choices everyone made in every round, but I’m at work, and this computer will not let me upload files anywhere. I can’t even attach it to an email. So once I get home I’ll put it up on the web for you all to see the details.

I didn’t see any of the private discussions you all presumably had, so I can’t really comment on why people made the choices they made, places where they deceived each other, etc., but Flarp55 did miss the deadlines in rounds 3 and 4 (though he said that he wanted to deposit 0 beans in round 3 anyway). Several other people missed deadlines once or twice, actually. In any case, Apple submitted his beans first in Round 4, and Frosty and Flarp55 didn’t have enough beans between them to make up the difference between their bean usage and the Red Team’s, so actually it didn’t matter whether they made the deadline or not in the final round. So I already knew how it was going to end once the Red Team finished submitting their beans and Apple had submitted his.

I would love to play if you hosted another go at this game.

Also, the Korean show I got this from is here, if anyone is interested (that’s episode 8, so if you want to start from the beginning, look here for all the episodes). I highly recommend this show, by the way, although there are a few things I didn’t completely like about it, and some of the games are a little bit broken (e.g. in the final game in the last episode, there is a situation where the optimal move for both players was to pass their turns, and there was no limit to how many times they could pass and no penalties for passing either).

P.S. @amoffett11 You get to pick a topic for the prize. No idea on what kind of turnaround will be involved here though. :slight_smile:


#32

crap, missed the deadline :flushed:


#33

Here’s the spreadsheet.


#34

Interesting…@amoffet11 so tricky…putting in 3 when we agreed on four


#35

Round 3 LOL


#36

I missed the deadline too…


#37

I knew @amoffett11 was the sneakiest on the other team. I thought @Doodat would have been sneaky too though.


#38

But I’m trustworthy! :cry:


#39

The only trustworthy one it would seem!! :stuck_out_tongue: I think I focused on the team aspect more than the individual but next time I’m playing cut throat!


#40

For my prize, I will select ‘Midnight Tides’
