Easy-To Implement Treasure Drop Variation Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I'm curious about this one: a Treasure Drop variation in which points are bad--the player with the most points at the end of round 4 loses.

I don't think it would drastically change the strategy (at least among the high-end players...); you're still trying to arrange the board so that your opponent is forced into giving you the better position. If anything, it might require greater foresight than regular Treasure Drop. But I would like to play this way to try it out (or hear from devs who have).

That doesn't require code changes to playtest, and I'd be happy to play you a few games to see if it's fun.

I usually end up having the least amount of points until round 4, where by then I've forced faked and double faked people so I can get the sides.

It definately would force some interesting strategies.

BTW... If this kind of game were implimented, it must be clearly recognisable that the comp is different.

Liz, I'd be happy to play a few games with you also if you want to test it out some because this sounds interesting to me and I want to try it. Just let me know if you want to play. I'm Dinadan on the Midnight ocean.
