Re: Logical Crafting: Mackerel contestant feedback thread
"Perfect rows give a bonus. Consecutive perfect rows give even nicer bonuses."
The way number of consecutive perfect rows is determined in Mackerel is different than the way it is in Pickerel. In Pickerel, if your empty loom is width 4 and you play a 20, that counts as 4 consecutive perfect rows from a single spool. In Mackerel, playing one spool can only get you one perfect row. This gives a strong incentive to use short perfect rows rather than the really long ones, if there are short perfect rows available.

ok, perhaps you could make that clearer in the directions. and one other minor correction to the level 2 storyboard:"Taking the Tapestry fills the last star completely, and all the spools vanish. The new target pattern doesn't match the rows on the loom, so Cantra uses the scissors to remove the rows, and the game ends. Incredible!" but what actually happens is the game ends when the last star is filled whether there are rows remaining on the loom or not.
