Something to start it off, at least.
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

Okay, I think I'm getting the hang of this game, slowly but surely.

Boy, was that last score an anomaly.  I haven't cracked 35K since then.

Not good when the high score contest starts falling off the first page. Bump...  :banghead:

Is nobody playing because its Christmas week or just because this game is a total dud? I've tried it in the past, and can't even bring myself to play it I hated it so much.

Buuuusy holiday season.  Didn't get a chance to start playing this till 8PM on NY's E.

2nd game netted me 2nd place.

About 6 more & I had a good one.  Started figuring out cat patterns to maximize points.  Still duffed the 2nd bonus round on this one--shoulda had more....but I'm not complaingin!  :]

66,490.

I'm only pretty OK at this game.  The lack of participation worked in my favor for sure.

I'll try to post a new game tomorrow--I already have a list of games to choose from (after my occasional wins, I was often drawing a blank when choosing the next game, so now I keep a running list of possible game selections as they pop into my head...).


Thanks,
-Jason

sob! I thought I'm the only one playing on NY and trying to do a quick squeeze! 44950 level 9 I believe. I think we (in EST) still got an hour left, right?

Hey Mimic-

I wanted to get back here & post again before I got busted--I got confused on time zone stuff...

My post sure sounded cocky, eh?  I didn't mean to presume that I'd won, considering that the competition wasn't yet over.

Sorry, it ends at 12 midnight pacific time, which is still 2.5 hours away.


Good luck--keep playing!

-Jason

You probably did win. I'll try couple more times and that will be enough for me for tonight. I look up some tips for this game maybe that will help me?

Gee, mimic, you sound really tired...I can tell from the way that you're typing...

Maybe you should just go to sleep...

Sleep is really important for your health...

 >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D

OK, I'm off for a NY's celebration!  Unless there's a MAME cab & internet access at the local swing dance place, the door's wide open!   ;D ;D ;D

Yay for being 18.5 hours ahead!  I slept through most of new year's day but I can still cram in an hour and a half before this is over.  ;D

Happy New Year!  :cheers:

Yeah, that's most unfortunate, I just started to like this game after finding some tips, oh well we'll see what Jason picks this time.

Didn't have time to properly have a go at this myself (and I set the game!!), I maybe should have put a longer time span on it.
