Game 2: WWA


(Note that I'll be numbering all GA/WWA/NA on same count, it's easier for me.)

This will be WWA with 0.5 rules, between me, my mother and Bec - unless somebody puts a hand up right now! This is the easiest of these games to play if you have no idea what you're doing... Last chance to join before we begin.
This will be played to/from 10 points. (I've started to think WWA should maybe use damage count, up from zero, like NA instead of "hit point" count, down to zero, like GA...)


Bec, I want this first test game to have different weapons for each player, so we'll purposely choose weapons after you.
I strongly suggest you do NOT choose knife or pistols - those being both weakest and most complicated to play.
Gatling is easiest to play, but using it you won't easily get the full idea how players with other weapons move...
So shotgun and rifle are kind of recommended, but you can of course have any of the five.

Choose your weapon and square to start in.

Re: Game 2: WWA


...and I'll give you advantage - perhaps... - by playing with pistols myself. Mom has shotgun (with which she lost a quick test game against me with rifle, but in theory they're equal weapons).

Re: Game 2: WWA


What was wrong about that was that you shot to a direction where you couldn't possibly hit anyone...

(hint: with rifle it's tactically best to try stay as far from other players as possible - except when one plays with Gatling)

Re: Game 2: WWA


Hmmm still no hits... bad luck in start or a fault in design?
I suppose the odds of hitting in WWA are smaller than NA, but I still expect this to be under 20 turns game.

Re:


You have a very small target unlike a battleship. The odds of guessing one square right is going to be tough.

Re: Game 2: WWA


I'm not sure what your move means... I'll assume that's meant to move twice to south and shoot west.

In NA you also shoot only 5 squares at time; in WWA on all weapons 7 at best, with shotgun potentially 21.
But that's where my math went wrong: those are the best theoretical numbers. Practically rifle/knife/Gatling tend to have 4-5, pistols 9-10, shotgun 13-14.
Still, I think this has been bad luck (and some bad playing from mom, as she isn't bothering to learn the game properly...); you've dodged couple turns where you had at least 1/3 chance of getting hit.
