    I am in the hunt for one....dispite computer failures.

    report promelgating the Thanksgiving festivities including
    insightful notes on games, food, and the official meeting

    Hey, I won one....WUWT........Whats Up With That
    or
    what the fudge:)

    The senate was also fun....and if I would have had just one earlier roll go my way,

    or I think I lost 8 and the other guy lost none and I did not get a card,

    and so someone else got the break with extra cards....but, I held on to the bitter end:)

    speaking of FOG
    ......from the available game thread......

    wonder where everone is tonight:)

    kinda quiet on CC

    guess shopping and decorating for the holidays is keeping us busy.

    though, I was out measuring my one tree that I like to light up
    in traditional fashion,

    but

    this fir tree grows about 12 to 18 inches per year depending on rainfall
    oh
    and one year I foolishly watered it ....a-lot....year round,
    even in winter.....cause....fir trees grow the year round


    anyway, it now stands at about 24-feet tall,
    I use a very long pole to determine height along with
    the height of the house....currently at 25-feet.


    and so the short story here is....it is way to gosh darn big!

    or.....I need a cherry picker/crane to get to the top (my pole now to short
    to do the job)

    It took 4000 mini-bulbs the last time I did it.

    and it is not that hard, as I think target has philipps 7-color mini bulbs
    at $9.99 each last time I bought some,
    and they are 200-bulbs per strand, and the instructions let you
    put 6 strands together, tho three strands of 1200 does use up one
    whole 20 amp circuit in the house....but, heck, years ago I had one installed:)

    and then


    gee......sorry, this was suppose to be a post about a risky smack board on line....

    ok will give that CC game a week or so for others to join,

    in the meantime.....

    have become very good at knowing who will win any CC game
    by just seeing where the opening set up gives certain players an advantage.
    This includes me being almost gone or actually gone by round 3
    unless
    it is a very large game

    //edit//

    ps, the dice still are wrong....no way can you roll 1 die against 3 dice,
    and win 4 times in a row or more......more than once in the same game.

    it just seems wrong

    Xmav........HLEP:)


    Hey, I am in a CC game and well, does this sound familiar,




    It's my turn
    it's free Style
    I am starting the game


    I deploy and make my moves,
    but

    everyone else plays before I have a chance to finish my turn,
    and as the game progresses,
    some finish between the time I press....begin turn and deploy

    ie......no one else can play until I do

    I have a continent

    I click begin and the move to deploy.....fast as I can,
    but......still not fast enough.


    and so......is there special software addons that give others an advantage
    in this area?


    The game I am in is very fast....tho has stopped abruptly at this time.


    look for a speed analysis later:)

    Well, it might help if you posted the game number.

    However, you need to plan out your turn BEFORE you click "Begin". Decide where you want to place your men, where you want to attack, etc. Plan all this out in advance, and then do it as fast as possible. I'm pretty good at this, and I've taken people out on a few occasions after they started their turn, but before they could deploy men.

    There aren't really any add ons that will help, except "Conquer Tell Notifier" which you can find in the "Conquer Club Tools" thread. This add on will beep when it is your turn to play a game.

    Thanks Mav....just the confirmation I needed to know.


    They were just very fast....and I was very slow,

    or....my mouse and how my monitor displays the play area
    make ever move kinda difficult.

    just to deploy is a multi click move the screen around
    douoble check process for me....that I must now learn to
    steamline some how.

    well, this game site seems up and running again....but I am worse off than ever.

    Losses are piling up and all else is in chaos....

    If only I could see the whole board at once and actually see the army counts.
    and
    If only I did not have to constantly scroll from move area to board area to
    double check everything
    and
    If only I could stop making silly moves, I just keep mis-reading the board
    and what I click on....

    will probly not play any more games until the 6-th,
    and since I can not play from home anymore (see person above you thread)
    I will probly not be in that many
    or
    my join up time will be on Sun/Mon mostly

    and____ref game___1622253


    This is a really goofy one.

    As some may remember, I have no faith or confidence in the overall set up
    and organization of the conquere games____but still they are fun
    and entertaining. (especially doubt how the numbers are generated for the dice)


    anyway, in game 1622253

    A new commer, (just signed up that day for that game)

    managed to get credit for holding every country on the board,
    (which means they should have won the game),
    but in fact they held nothing at that time.

    Check it out, One of the other players says they are turning it over to a mod,
    so, it is either a giant bug in the game matrix,
    or some kind of hack-job.

    I really liked the game, cause it had 8 players.

    oh well, another loss for me. Can not stop a player getting 20 or more guys on
    every turn, no matter what they currently hold.

    Hey, the above game so corrupted I got this message from conquer-admin

    Hello MusicTrooper,

    Due to technical difficulties game 1622253, which you joined, had become corrupted beyond repair and had to be deleted.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.

    Regards,
    The Conquer Club
