2 Player Combinatorial Abstract Strategy
msg tools
mbmbmbmb
I have a really big abstract strategy game collection. I only own the games which are in the "Abstract Strategy" category and which:

(1) Are on geeklist: [geeklist=173526][/geeklist]

(2) Or are for min 1 / max 1

(3) Or are for any min player of 3 or more.


So you can search:

2 / 2 Normal (include all games for this range)

This will give you games that allow 2-4 players and such

2 / 2 Exact (include games that only support exactly this range)


This gives you games that are only for 2 players. Chess, Checkers that sort of thing.

No player specification ?

You get 1 player and 3-6 player games and such as well as the 2 player games.

---------

Easy copy ffor my name >> 2pCombAbsStrat



edit 6/8/2014

2pCombAbsStrat no longer has any game in his collection which is not playable by 2 players.

* All the 1 player games are out of the collection
* All games requiring 3 or more players are out.

Not2pComp will own all of these games as well as all of the games on the "bad" list

First of all, thanks to whoever did this.

Second, a question. Is Ta Yü really combinatorial ?

Ta Yü has luck of the draw each turn, so it's indeed not a combinatorial game.

Thanks for pointing out the problem with Ta Yu. I moved Ta Yu to the other >> geeklist.

Please have discussion about yes/no on the geeklist items themselves so we all can keep track. Hopefully I can get the abstract games on one list or the other...

Right now I'm trying to cull the remaining 4500 games into something more manageable by looking for BGG characteristics which are inconsistent with a combinatorial game such as "Dice Rolling." (550 "abstract strategy" games with dice rolling shake )I'm not reading these, just marking them and moving on.

One way that everyone could help with this list to search for odd things, or combinations of things.

So you do a 2-2 player search, and select "Dice Rolling" for example. Do any games come up? A random setup would be ok. Please comment on it that the "Dice Rolling" is for a random setup. That way the next guy doesn't have to open the game and figure it out too.

Do a 2-2 search for "Roll / Spin and Move" - that would definitely be a problem. Mark the game with a comment as a problem, and I'll see the comment.

Do note that the list has all the games for 1 player, or 3 or more players. So some Dice rolling games for 3-4 players are going to show up.

Not2pComp will own all of these games as well as all of the games on the "bad" list


It seems the account still owns games that are in the "bad" list like Ta Yü Kaliko etc.

Yes, I need to compare good list with bad. To resolve any problems. That is another step.

AI also need to compare the game collection to both the good list and the bad list and fix any problems. yet another step.

For two games you mentioned:
Ta Yü is not in good list, it is in bad list.
Kaliko is not in good list, it is in bad list.



edit
the games in the "bad" collection will be owned by user Not2pComp so that they are searchable.

List was the wrong word, I meant collection. I searched the 2pCompAbsStract collection and I didn't see it.

Let me take a step back...

I have spent dozens of hours copying the list of good games to a geeklist owned by my good buddy 2pCombAbsStrat.

With herace owning the geeklist and 2pCombAbsStrat owning the collection, it was hard to keep additions/deletions under control. I'm close to being done.

I need to do the same thing with the "bad" list. But it is going to be more complicated to work with the bad list than the good list...

I'll announce when I've gotten "good" list copied and synced with collection. I'm sure that will be by Sunday.

Thanks for watching...
Herb

Thanks for catching this... I have yet to sync the list and collection.
