It's simple and I'm a big fan of simple games. However, as many people have stated already the random element of the tiles make hard to create a effective strategy. This also makes getting the point medals exceedingly difficult. Personally I like the challenge.



I don't agree that the randomness gets in the way of strategy - games with random elements can still be strategic. But I think the sheer size of the board makes it overwhelming. It's very hard to see how your first few moves are going to affect the endgame. A 10 or 15 tile board, maybe even just 5 tiles, could make for an interesting puzzle, since you could actually think several moves ahead.



There's a major problem with your power being random every turn. There's practically no strategy left. If players could manage their flow of power (bide their time vs. more points right now) it would actually be fun.

Yeah, the whole random thing is kind of awkward. Maybe it could work better if it was sorta like Risk; holding contiguous areas yields a higher chance of getting 17 or higher, or something.

Tried and tried and tried. Got me a little 850 medal, but hey, only 3 people have, so maybe strategy and being a 'number nut' aren't going to get you at 1000 medal anytime soon with random numbers. Statistician in me tells me getting 10% better is going to unlikely unless that luck was very well timed. Stars; some vague reasons: I like hexagons and numbers though, and it works just fine. The AI can't compete worth a darn though.
