    Ben, I've almost took F5 - I've actually have even wrote it already, but changed it to B5.

    B1 (that should be the last one, right?)

    I'm a bit late, I know. I'm sorry. But I have cookies for you instead! :D

    The_Zeltron wants to see D5. But that spot was empty...

    Random Comments picks A5. Also empty.


    Skiara believes the last rebel hides at B1. And she was right! [face_dancing]

    This means that we have a winner!
    But since Skiara only played for fun, we actually have two winners: Darth Gangrenous and benknobi1!
    Congrats! =D=

    Hmmph. Rigged. Cheating. Unfair.


    Uh, I mean, Congratulations! Great Job, you two!

    And watch your back.

    :p

    Nope! The first two hits were luck, the rest was strategy. ;)

    Only two possibilities here...

    1:you are Lexi's Sock.
    2:you bribed her.
    2.5:since you made the game, you understand the trick and as such can get them while we shoot aimlessly because we cannot read the rules and figure out the formula and/or are just too lazy

    Bribing? Of course not. Sure, I got a lot of chocolates and cookies and I may have hinted where the rebels were hiding. But I wasn't bribed... :p

    [face_laugh]

    The bad thing is, that I love chocolates and those chocolates and cookies would have never made it to Lexi. So they are not from me... the question is... you know the question... :p

    Beside of buying delicious chocolates, making cookies and sending both overseas - while hoping that they arrive in time, you can use the following big trick! ;) :)

    Using a strategy! And making a map on paper where you can add all needed informations (like 'save rebel spots', 'save non rebel spots' and 'possible rebel spots'). ;) :)

    You have to remember the following:

    The list pf points looks like:
    4 points = 1 rebel hiding
    3 points = 2-3 rebels hiding
    2 points = 4-6 rebels hiding
    (1 point for an already discovered group)

    Plus: No group is right next to another one! That means for a 'group' of one rebels for example, none can be in the red spots:
    xxxxx
    xxxxx
    xxxxx

    So those red spots are not helpful to pick. The black spots might have another hidding rebel in there.

    (This wouldn't be allowed:
    xxxxx
    xxyyx
    xxxxx
    x = a group of two
    y = another group of two
    But this would work:
    xxxxx
    xxxyy
    xxxxx)

    If one pics A3 and gets 2 points, it means that there's a group of 4 to 6 rebels hiding. Of course, no one (beside of Lexi :p) knows where that group is exactly nor how big it is exactly. So the following possitions are possible (marked yellow):

    --A B C D E F
    1 X X X X X X
    2 X X X X X X
    3 X X X X X X
    4 X X X X X X
    5 X X X X X X
    6 X X X X X X

    How to figure out where that group is? That needs a bit luck. If other players choose the following spot (marked red), then the possible spots get limited to this (and you get some 'save rebel hiding spots' in addition ;) ):

    --A B C D E F
    1 X X X X X X
    2 X X X X X X
    3 X X X X X X
    4 X X X X X X
    5 X X X X X X
    6 X X X X X X
    (Light green = save to guess and getting one point = 'save rebel hiding spots of the same group'
    (Light red/pink = 'no rebel hiding spot' = do not guess)

    If one gets one point for B1 (see below), then it means that it's attached to an already discovered group. In this case the 4-6 group. Since there are four save spots to find a rebel hiding, B1 can only be of that same group - which means that more spots are obviously empty (now marked in light red again). Only the single yellow one is a possible one, since we still don't know if we have found a five or six rebel group (four rebels isn't possible after being B1 a 1 point spot, because the groups are 'groups' not lines).

    --A B C D E F
    1 X X X X X X
    2 X X X X X X
    3 X X X X X X
    4 X X X X X X
    5 X X X X X X
    6 X X X X X X

    ^That means...

    With those information, the first one to three rounds it's about blind guessing. Then you have to remember the tricks/information above (or from the first post in this thread). After that you have to do the odds, if it's better to choose a totally new spot (trying to find a new group) or picking save spots to save at least one point for that guess.

    I hope that the explanation is not too difficult and I hope it helps you! :)

    Oh, and even I don't know how many groups Lexi puts in that map. So, maybe next time it's about finding one single rebel... :p

    ...and I did put so much effort in it. :(

    Short version:
    1. make a map on paper at home
    2. write down where how many rebels got hit already
    3. figure out and guess the odds where to find rebels or empty spots
    4. WIN!!

    :p

    Thanks Skiara for explaining your strategy. :)

    Do you guys wanna try "Get the rebels" again, with all this new information, or are you in the mood to try something else?
