568BILLABONG SOLUTION REQUIRED
- Feb 6, 2009(I thought of something)
Last week several played Billabong a couple of times. (I hear that
Michal won it every time ...).
Nice filler game, very positional-logical. I like it myself. Of
course, I tweak it - we only start with 4 'roos each instead of 5, and
we start half-way round the track, so that we don't have to go through
the irrelevant first half, but start with the absorbing endgame ...
But it stil has a huge flaw (those of you who know the game will
understand): kingmaker. Amongst grown-ups, around half of all games
end up with player A deciding, with his last move, whether Player B
gets to win or whether Player C gets to win. Very annoying for Player
B or Player C.
But it IS an interesting, fun, logic-puzzle of a filler game ...
SO, ANY SUGGESTIONS for a tweak to overcome that flaw? (I have 2
suggestions myself, but it wouldn't start a dialogue if I gave them
now, would it, and I'd be interested in your "solutions".)
Post any ideas or comments.
