I've tripled it now, Foxy :D :lipsrsealed:

Seriously, just start at level 10. It doesn't go much faster after that - you just need to get into the rhythm of it and keep it low. Anything above 8 lines is a cause for worry.

In case you'd missed it, the overview of all the best scores and standings is online. You can find it here: http://www.talkabouttennis.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6778

The rankings were up to 39 people, and several highscores were seriously hammered when compared to last month. Great job by all who took part, and good luck this month! :)

Part of what's frustrating about Ball of Madness pursuit is the inconsistancy in the jewel values, from 10-40. It seems like, when the good jewels are up for grabs, I choke, and when its meaningless ones, I nail em.

Maybe that's why I relate so well to Elena Dementieva et al.

Yup, the gem values are extremely frustrating. No rhyme or reason to them. Sometimes the good ones just pop up. What was odd on my score is that I didn't have a single gold one... Three pinks and a blue. Turned out to be enough.

I was about to write a long lament about how I would never be able to get four golds, so I'd have no shot, but then I decided to play again, and...

...I had either 3 or 4 golds in my last game and still couldn't do it.

I think in my nervousness I may have skipped the jewel on the last level. That's like forgetting to sign my score card in golf.

SIGH.

I still say Level 8 is the worst (the one with the goop). I finally figured out the one after. It kicked my ass for the longest time. My problem is that I just don't go fast enough. I need as many gold gems as possible. LOL!

Whew, what a wacky Deal or No Deal tournament.

I played my first round on a computer at work that apparently didn't have the right Flash player or something, so I couldn't see any of the cases or numbers. All I could see was the rectangles for either deal or no deal and how much was left on the sides.

So when I was finally down to 50,000 and 500,000, I figured I was safe to get over 200,000 on my deal.

In my last game I figured I had no shot, having to get over 500,000. But somehow I got a case worth 750,000, and was able to get it down to two cases worth 400,000 and 750,000.

I set up another identical tourney, and hope you all can join.

That IS very annoying... Usually it not only tells you when there are no matches left, but how many matches there are... In the game I used to have on my system, it drove me crazy when it said I had 8 matches but I couldn't see a damn one...

I know!

I did some quick stat compilation...

Dry and I have entered the same tournament ten times. Seven of those times we have met in the first round. We have actually been more likely to meet in the first round of eight-player draws than four-player draws. We've met in the first round of five of the six eight-player draws we've both entered, but only two of the four four-player draws.

The Rundown:

Game - # of Entries - First Round oohsalmon vs. dryrunguy?

Ball of Madness - 4 - Yes
Yahtzee - 8 - No
Deal or No Deal - 8 - Yes
Disco Bowling - 8 - Yes
Pool Jam - 4 - Yes
Deal or No Deal - 4 - No
Deal or No Deal - 4 - No
Ball of Madness - 8 - Yes
Slingo Para-Dice - 8 - Yes
Yahtzee - 8 - Yes

It's quite nuts.

But it's been fun.

Edited to add: I don't see that much Roitman/Chela history... http://www.atptennis.com/3/en/players/headtohead/?player1=Roitman%2C+Sergio&player2=chela

I had originally called us the Radriantefy/Serena

I've only managed to get it out once - I was so proud of myself. I'm beginning to think it was a fluke though. I've been playing most of the night at work for the last two nights and haven't managed it again.

I also find it frustrating that it doesn't tell you when there are no matches left. I seem to be staring the screen for ages before I finally decide there can't be any left and reset. (knowing my luck there were probably half a dozen moves - but I'm just too blind to spot them).

You survived. I totally am not a pressure bowler. After my second game, I went to go practice in the arcade, and rolled a 269. I come back, and my shot is totally inconsistant, and I get a 209.

I have known for some time that I'm not a pressure bowler. Years ago my high school tennis team and our coaches went to a bowling alley one night, competing to see who would have the best score over two games. I dominated the first game, but once the pressure was on me in the second game, and everyone was watching me, I totally stunk up the joint. But I digress...

Well done Dry. Make me proud the rest of the way :)

Hi :) If you go to the Arcade, then click on the link "Tournaments", you will see all the current tournaments listed. From there, you select the Connect 4 tournament by clicking "View Tournament". Now you will see all the people who entered this tournament in little green brackets. In the bracket with your own name, there is also a link "play". Click that to play the game!

Each time you play the game one of your, in this case three, chances to post a score will be used. After you've played three tournament games in this round, you will have to wait and see if you opponent has posted or will post a higher or lower score. If you win, all the above can be repeated. If you lose, ehm... Let's not think about that ;) Good luck!

How is this possible?! This is like Justine and Serena.

So I joined the DOND tournament and click on JTContinental's name thinking I could trick the system, but I ended up with Munchin.

BTW does Fruit Smash hangs for anyone else? It does this every freaking time I'm doing well ((9000 plus or so) with 50 lines to go. URRGH!!!

don't worry. I'm awful at DoND. I think in the last tournament I had $500. If it makes you feel better, I totally screwed up twice in my 2nd round at Tetris and my score is utterly beatable.

I don't think so, salmon. I've tried a million times just to get 66 on the first level. Have never done better than 65. 159 is a great score for two levels, though! Well done! But yeah, it doesn't help much if you can't get gold or pink jewels thereafter.

OMG!

That was the worst game of DoND I've ever played. I had to beat 148M, and then in the first 10 cases, I opened, everything over 100,000 was gone!

And then I just kept opening the big cases. I was finally ready to settle down with $7500 or $75 when I clicked on the last suitcase too fast and everything froze. This has gotta be the first 0 in DOND history!

Truth be told, my Frogger run had been a long time coming. I had been lurking in second in some time.

Dry, the leaderboard is all about playing a lot of games, and doing fairly well in all of them. In other words, you can win Wimbledon and still be ranked outside the top 10. It's that simple.

On BoM, I got a second first level 66, and 250 through the first three levels.

Then green as far as the eye can see :(

The leaderboard is all about playing a lot of the games and doing fairly well in all of them, not just about shining in several. Put another way, you can win Wimbledon (and Memphis) and still be ranked outside the top 10.

In other news, I got another first level 66 in BoM, and then went on to get 250 through three levels, which is stupendous. After that, sadly, it was green as far as the eye can see :(

We should have a duel of a two-player BoM tournament sometime, Dry, in which we pledge to never hit any jewels.

OK - so I've been checking out the arcade lately ... and I've come to the conclusion that Alice is manipulating the results.

First of all, Jake is getting too many incredible cuts. He's generally easy to beat because he can't peg worth a damn, but the ridiculous cuts keep him competitive. So the high score of 287 is, like, unfathomable. What's it like to sleep with Alice? heheheheh

Now I'm ticked at Yahtzee. I get two Yahtzee's in the same game, but it won't let me score them both. I had to put my five fives in the fives row. I'm sure I remember being able to count all the Yatzee's in a single game as a Yahtzee worth 50 points each! Grrrrrrrrrrr! Base on these rules, Dry's high score is practically unassailable.

Alice! ... you ... you ... Slut!

After 41 days in limbo, the Alpha Force tournament is up and running! Thanks to the two of you who answered my pleas.
