Arcade games ....

I have just been having a go at the arcade games, and wow!....there are some high scores in there (not mine though). I had heard that Switzerland was dead on a Sunday, but some people are practising an awful lot!

CH is a quiet place in the evenings then?

Yours

Failed rabbit shooter.

Don't worry the rabbit shooting is not exactly easy. You need to get two rabbits with one shot at least once and then the rest without missing to even register! And for the high score this 3 times You will get there if you practice...

Re: Arcade games ....

I wondered if I might get a response from you on this one! I notice you hold the record for most of the games!

I thought there was something wierd with the scoring on Rabbits. So there is no time limit, but your score goes up depending on accuracy? Do you get better scores on fast rabbits rather than slow rabbits, or doesn't it matter?

Not only depending on accuracy but also depending on the speed you take. Hardcore gives you the most points as the bunnies are faster... When you say no time limit, while this is true each bunny that passes by deducts .01 from your total. So 100 bunnies equals one point.

I only hold the record for those games I enjoy playing and can be bothered to defend - this usually means there is something personal like with Space Invaders...

So let me get this straight, to have a shot of getting to the top of the scoreboard, I should use the fastest speed, hit every bunny I aim for, and try and not let any through? Think I'll try my hand at space invaders... not had a go there yet! I can't do any worse...

Well nearly. You need to hit every bunny and 3 times you need to kill two with one bullet. That said you can let a few bunnies through but not more than 149 or you will not get that high score

Re: Arcade games ....

Hi there, you'll notice I've moved this thread to off topic, as it started with only the barest of references to activities / free time and then became a games thread.

Play on...

Re: Arcade games ....

Has anyone else noticed the 'House' always wins or at least gets to 'Push' with Anime Blackjack? Every time I place high value stakes and come near or on 21 ...the House does too. This can happen three times in a row, over many games. (Perhaps I oughta not mention anything, I like my fingers unbroken )

No no, just keep going... If you bust you will win or get a push on the next hand so heep on. Assuming of course that you are sensible...
