Fate (Game)

Postby Hdjensofjfnen » July 17th, 2018, 8:52 pm

The goal of this game is to achieve the most points, with the wiki split into two teams.
Differentiate yourselves into team A and team B thus:
Team A: Usernames beginning with A-M
Team B: Usernames beginning with N-Z
Usernames beginning with 0-9 or _: Hooray! You get to pick.

The goal of the game:
The attacking team attempts to kill the pattern by adding cells. They must add exactly one cell per turn.
The defending team attempts to preserve the pattern by deleting cells. They must delete exactly one cell per turn.
The attacking team makes its turn first.
EDIT: After each turn, the pattern runs for exactly one generation.
Once the pattern is dead, the number of generations the defenders held out is added to the defending team's score.
After each round, the teams switch roles.
Each starting pattern will be a randomized 5x5.

Let round 1 begin!
Pattern:
x = 5, y = 5, rule = B3/S23
obo$3b2o$4bo$5o$3bo!
Life is hard. Deal with it.
This is my new favorite spaceship:
x = 8, y = 4, rule = B3-ek/S023
bobo$2obo3bo$bobo$3bo!

I hope this is how it's supposed to work (use the right):
x = 5, y = 5, rule = B3/S23
2bo$2b2o$o3bo$2o2bo$o2bo!

It makes a paperclip
get down with the sickness.

Not really. Add one cell and then advance the pattern one generation.

That's what I did, sorry, I forgot to include the 1-gen predecessor:
x = 5, y = 5, rule = B3/S23
obo$3b2o$4bo$5o$3b2o!

Since no one is replying, I'll just play for the opposite team for a bit:
x = 5, y = 5, rule = B3/S23

The attacking team has already won, because the pattern decays into at most two dominos and the attacking team can then play a cell that influences neither.

New pattern:
x = 5, y = 5, rule = Life
3obo$2b3o$2bobo$4o$3b2o!


I will also defect to the Latters because it appears they don't see this thread, so First Attack:
x = 6, y = 5, rule = B3/S23
b3obo$o2b3o$3bobo$b4o$4b2o!

Score:
A: 0

Since I am still on Team B, we're waiting...

I propose we either declare Attacks and Defenses or use LifeHistory's marker states to show how the pattern has been affected, like so:
x = 30, y = 6, rule = LifeHistory
13.D11.A$.3A.A6.3A.A7.2A.3A$C2.3A6.A3.2A5.2A3.2A$3.A.A6.A3.A7.2AC.2A$
.4A8.A10.5A$4.2A7.A.2A9.A!

Here we can clearly see the effects of the past three turns and that it is now the Defenders' turn.
