[FINAL RESULTS] SP Race for the Galaxy Three-Man Challenge


#81

Ah, thanks.


#82

Camping this weekend with no wifi, so probably no moves from me until Mon. If no moves by Tue then probably eaten by bears. :bear:


#83

Managed to get a jump on all the goals and didn’t miss out on a dev/settle action, leading to a very full board.

@TheDukester had a huge military I was worried would turn into the 6 cost dev for heaps of points


#84

IRL: 0-0 me vs bears, ideal match result.
In round 3 table 4: Giant 32, Jason 22, Snotty 11.


#85

Good game @SleepingGiant, I can’t believe you got all those military worlds with strength of 2 and 3. To get them all you only had Space Marines and the dev that lets you discard a card to get a military pt for that turn.


#86

@Snotty128 @JaneHatke

I have hit a repeatable bug in our game which prevents progress. I choose my desired action, tap OK, and the game crashes. I will report this and let you know what happens.

#87

Here are the result of a game between KKakerDude 39, MaryJaneHatke 25, and Jason 22.


#88

My last action was to gamble at the gambling world, perhaps we need to avoid that card if it’s causing problems


#89

@Snotty128 @JaneHatke

Jeff from TempleGates Games responded as quickly as ever … and regrets to tell us that our game is corrupted and cannot be recovered.

We need to start a new one … I will send the invites out now …


#90

the very same reproducable crash just now in my Galactic Master challenge game with @Jules!
Jeff Gates from TempleGates said they would investigate the crash.
i had activated the “settings/analytics/share with developers” option to forward crash data to them.

Jules’ last action had been to use the Gambling World :persevere:
for two times before he had won a card by using it and it was ok, this time he has lost his ante for the very first time.

@Snotty128, had you lost your ante too?
seems like the game is thrown out of sync by this.


#91

Yup lost my ante. It was the first time I used the card so I’m not sure if it would work if I had won.


#92

Zebracadabra 45
@KYakerDude 39
@whovian223 23

Omg, 42 vps from Rebel and Imperium! Gg, guys. I doubt I’ll ever repeat that.


#93

An observation in the case of game ending bugs: if the game has progressed to the point that the winner is not in doubt, I suggest we accept the score at that point as the end result.


#94

There were only half a dozen cards in each tableau, so it was really anybodys game still


#95

For clarity, I’m the mhatke in the result reported by @KYakerDude

@KYakerDude 39
Me 25
@jason1002 22

GG!


#96

Jules having used the Gambling World successfully twice without causing a crash suggests it might be the fail being the bad boy.


#97

We’ll take game-stopping crashes on a case-by-case basis … and hope that that’s our only one.

I will say that I’m not comfortable with declaring a winner. This is a game where 14-point developments are routinely dropped as the 11th and 12th cards. The visible scoreboard often doesn’t tell the tale.

But let’s just hope it doesn’t come up again.


#98

Also, Gambling World is a stupid card. It’s causing these crashes just from the gravitational pull of its suckiness.


#99

Whoops. Thanks for the correction.


#100

i object! as i had already posted on Slack:

the card has great potential.
my opponent used it twice for great benefit.

  1. flipped Merchant Guild, Pan-Galactic Research, Star Nomad Lair and Galactic Renaissance.
    kept P-G Research.
  2. flipped Rebel Stronghold, Galactic Resort, Galactic Imperium, R&D Crash Program.
    kept R&D CP.

it’s like a free Explore action. you can choose the best fit for your strategy.
it will be triggered quite often when played early.
and it’s low cost.
