Another strategy game

Postby LBJackal » Tue Dec 07, 2004 11:48 pm

Don't know if any of you have tried Alchemy

Kinda tough but it gets easier once the rows disappear like in Tetris. My first try I got 2457.

How long did it take you? It took me 33 mins to get 2457, but I stopped after the first board to post this and a few other things at the cafe.

BTW: what strategy did you use?

DON"T READ AHEAD IF YOU WANT TO TRY YOUR OWN STRATEGY:








I don't claim to have the best strategy, and I don't claim to be an expert of any sort. But if I found a new game, I'd want to try to mess around by myself first... :-[

It took me just under an hour, 58mins or something like that. I guess some basic strategies are to try to leave as many different tiles open, and not double up on similar tiles open. The more prominent strategy I use is to line up alternative lines. That way you can eliminate them systematically. ;-)

Yeah I did that too... have a couple vertical lines, and a couple horizontal lines, and have them far enough apart so they won't interfere. Discarding is very useful, and shouldn't be a last resort like I used to have it as. If you discard when you have one taht'll screw up the palce, it shousln't get to a point wher ein an emergency you don't have spots available. Stupid mistakes led to an early exit right after I got to the 4th board this time. Only 3528 total still. I don't know if I could spend 2 hours playing a game like that though :-°
