So I end up with 3 compass 3 tablets 2 gears

My scoring app is saying 31 and I am getting 36

9 for 3 compass
9 for 3 tablets
4 for the 2 gears
7 for 1 set
7 for 1 set

Am I crazy or the app?

Thanks as always

I play at EPGS on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month and if you live in Eastern PA, Western NJ or Northern DE ... you should too!

Could you have entered one of the 3s as a 2? That would cause the total to be 31.

App programmers can make mistakes, just like people can.

Are you sure about the number of science symbols? 31 would be reached if you had three of one and two of each of the others. Also, were all of them on cards or was one of them a Wonder bonus? And did each of the cards have a single science symbol on them, or did one have multiple symbols? As I recall, there's at least one card with multiple symbols, but you can only choose one of them; you don't get them all.

I do not know what this 'mistake' thing you speak of is. My apps all work perfectly. I just don't document all the 'features'.

I wouldn't think 7*MIN(x,y,z) would be that difficult to code. whistle

x*x + y*y + z*z + MIN(x, MIN(y, z)) is the easy part. The hard part is figuring out what x, y, and z are, when playing with Babylon and/or the Scientists Guild.

MaxScore=0;

for i=0 to Wild_Card_Count
for j=0 to Wild_Card_Count
for k=0 to Wild_Card_Count
If (i+j+k) = Wild_Card_Count
Then {
TestScore = Score (x+i, y+j, z+k);
If TestScore > MaxScore
Then { BestI = i;
BestJ = j;
BestK = k;
MaxScore=TestScore;
}
}
next k;
next j;
next i;


First Bonus: I've trapped your wildcard values for you so you can include them in the output. Code is actually five lines shorter if you don't care.

Second Bonus: You don't even have to test for no wild cards as the loop will run exactly once if WCC=0. (Well, really, that depends on your compiler....)

Third Bonus: Algorithm is future compatible with any expansion that might also add wildcards.

Cities is the real difficulty as the "copy your neighbor" icon is not a true wildcard and would require some serious monkeying around on the first if condition if player has a choice of exactly two icons.

But seriously, the stuff I was assigned for homework in high school was more difficult than 7 wonders scoring. It took me longer to type the code than it did to think of it.

If your apps are unfriendly and just don't satisfy, why not try THIS.

Thanks I didnt have a computer when we played, was doing this post on the forums. The app was broke, looks like they were updating some cities stuff when I was entering mine. All is good now.
