I even had fun solving the puzzle ;)
You're welcome and I'm as glad that you enjoyed the puzzle as I hope that you're going to enjoy the game as well! Fujek:
I have been wondering about this point for a while now actually.
When I participate on solving a puzzle myself I hate the time pressure and the high chance that somebody's going to beat me and I ... well, I shouldn't say I'd end with nothing, since I enjoyed the contest, but I end out 'lacking' a prize.
So, the question is, would it be better to 'stack' up gift codes and then have a single great give-away where the few regular attenders here have a chance to win one each with far less time pressure, or would it be better to spread them out and do this more often like now...
well in a way the pressure thing isnt bad on its own and well yeah it sucks not to win by just perhaps by 1 minute (especially when you get nuts after a while with all the blue water pieces and red letters and i just had filled my bath :p), but thats the game.
alhtough with these kind of things and anyone else just randomly posting codes its first come first get. if i saw the post 10 minutes sooner i could have gotten it.
if one was to announce a time when you would post it, then everyone starts at the same time and then there is pressure too and the sucks when you are too late but then everyone had atleast a fair chance,and everyone had known about it.
if you were to stack up and post for example then 2 jigsaw puzzles at the same time you can be sure atleast 2 different people will win since chances are high they arent gonna solve both. might also give people a choice on what game they want to solve (also in case they might have one already)
but afterall its your contest so your rules offcourse.
at first i thought it was an rpg with the health bars lol. never been that familiar with the jagged alliance games.
love the type of contest though
