Re: Game Theory Games

... I thought people might pick France too much, but made only a small bet, landing on a submission of: 45% FIEAGTR 37% TIEAGFR 18% GIEATFR Wow, we basically had the same thought process except that I estimated France would be underpicked. Hence my submission of FIEA followed by some irrelevant let...

Re: 1st Game Played - Reflections and Questions

Another tip: Make sure you always enter orders before the deadline. Otherwise, your Reliability Rating will go down and it'll lower the amount of games you can join (to 0, if you continue missing turns).

So if you'll be without internet for two weeks, email the mods webdipmod@gmail.com

I am in the same position. Joined yesterday.

I can understand the need for reliability but perhaps offer one 'wildcard' for newcomers to enter a first game.
What kind of game are you looking for? With Press (messaging)? We'll find one for you together.

Re: Game Theory Games

Wow, that was an easy calculation..

There's less than a 50% chance there will be a matching submission. I can't reveal my math as that would say too much about my thought process. I'll just send it to Squigs instead.

Maybe there should be two winners, whoever gets the most solos and whoever has the highest average expected solo rate? Might be more complicated than it's worth, but for an extreme example, ...

Re: Game Theory Games

Do I understand correctly: In your simulations, I will be entered into 1,000,000/p games, where p is the number of players. In each game I'll have 6 random opponents. My preference will be pitted against each of those 6. Then each game is simulated and I may randomly win with some skewed odds.

Re: Game Theory Games

I PM'd Ancient Memories some days ago and predicted to them we had selected the exact same placement. Nailed it! Too bad I didn't predict the other 4.
