How Demonyaj Wins How Demonyaj Wins

So this is a screenshot from the game Puzzle Pirates. Note that the game is lost when the third row is filled, and all the attacks- the three partial rows of sprinkles plus the strike- were all sent in one turn.

This is why demonyaj can be difficult to defeat.

Hee. That's a very, very normal thing when fighting D - he told me that was a 3x15 (on a board that's 13 tall) - even if that block hadn't been there, you'd be dead.

The setup is easy - 1 + 2x2 + 3x3. As long as it's all sprinkle before the 2x2-3x3, it'll generate a 2-wide and a 3-wide in that order. There's a 2/3 chance of the 2xX falling in 1-2 or 2-3, leaving the only place for the 3xX to be 4-5-6 - hence, instakill, if the 3-wide is tall enough.

Strikes always hit first, sprinkle on top. Sprinkle will fill column 4 to row 11, leaving room for one additional piece to drop. A 2x13+ 3x13+ with 11+ rows of sprinkle is also an instakill on any board - even assuming the 3x falls in 1-2-3 and the 2x in 5-6, the sprinkle will fill up 4... and since it takes at least two turns for any silver dropped block to turn breakable, it doesn't matter what piece falls, because it won't be able to break anything.

Swordfighting's weird.

I just looked at your subject ... the really amusing part? My comment originally had matching capitalization until I changed it.

And I thought I was good. Apparently there are 3 different skill levels.

Expert. Him

Semi-expert. You, I'd bet.

Fool who thinks he's an expert, but is about to learn a cruel lesson. Me.

By the way, what times does the crew usually list jobs for? I haven't seen the Black Plague on the board at all.

I should sign up for that some time.. bleh.

That game is sounding awfully fun.

Now I'm up to three MMO's I should start playing once university starts again and I get a decent 'net connection. Doesn't bode well for studies..
