Listen here pilgrim, Happy Thanksgiving to all. I would love to share with you a game of Can't Stop I recently finished on my G1 against three AI players. Big thanks to Joe Sack who programmed the game now available for free on the Android Market.

My first turn I swiftly got on the 6-7-8 gravy train and rode it all the way to closing 8s. It took 16 rolls. Not sure the exact odds of this happening, but I'm guessing its around 27%. The three AI players apparently tried to compensate but each went too far and all lost their progress.

My next turn, with 6 & 7 about a third of the way closed, I got 6-7-12 on a roll. I was stuffing my marker in the last 6 spot before I knew it with only five slots remaining for my 7.

The AI algorithms' had a meltdown like warm cranberry sauce and those AI turkeys had only moved a combined 15 spots when my last turn rolled around.

My last turn was on 4-7-12. Five rolls later and I had whip-creamed my opponent's collective pumpkin pie. The squash fest was complete. The dressing down was delivered.


Now can you find all the Thanksgiving play-on-words in this report?

FYI, the game in the Android marketplace is titled "Press Your Luck" if you're searching for it.

I also did a short writeup on it here: http://meandmydroid.blogspot.com/2009/12/freebie-friday-ii.h....

and now Roll or Don't is also available for the Android platform. It has far better AI than the free "Press Your Luck" but also has a cost:
