I like to play Chinese Checkers against 5 computer on hard difficulty. It's challenging and fun, BUT...

There's a terrible glitch with the GDG version:

I can't tell you how many times I had all my pieces in my base, except 1 (which was ONLY one space away), and couldn't finish because the stupid computer left it's piece there to block me.

According to Chinese Checkers rules, blocking like this is not allowed ]-- I would automatically win since I had all the base spots filled (except for the blocked spot). I have to keep going 1 space over, 1 space back waiting for the stupid computer to move, which it never does. This is not considered "strategy" of the AI; it's poor sportsmanship (read: poor programming).

I've actually lost MANY times because of this. Another computer finally wins after 20+ turns of me not being able to finish. It's downright frustrating! Evil or Very Mad

Idea GeatDayGames: Please update the game to fix this glitch.

That's happened to me quite often too but I can't really vote cause none of the options fit...

I doubt GDG will read this here. You might want to send them an email through this link on the bottom of the page...

They'll respond a lot sooner.

Thanks nana48!

Sorry if the poll wasn't set up well. I was frustrated and just ranting. Thanks for the advice. I may contact them about it, but I'll probably just get over it... Cool

I know. Isn't it frustrating, Arthur300? Sad I love playing Chinese Checkers on here because there's nobody to play with in real life. Plus it's nice to see all your options before you make a move...so much quicker, too! I'm so impatient, though, I can hardly wait while all the computer players take their turns! Isn't that sad? Embarassed

But in real life, if someone pulls that cheapskate block move: BAM! Shocked haha I win!!!

I guess we can't have our cake and eat it too. At least we can vent together...

Yep, happens to me a lot! The computer FINALLY will clear your spaces just in time for you to be ONE behind another color, and they win. For this, I score 190,000 and get 100 treats - or so - it varies.

I ust played the best game of my life, and the computer nailed me with this problem. I was ready to make my last move, but an opponent piece just stayed there in the way. I had to go back and forth in the same two spots for about 8 times until the computer decided to move the opposing piece...by that time my score had dropped me out of trophy range. Evil or Very Mad Annoying!

I've decided the best way is to give the computer the best way out of your area, even if this means you take a little longer to get there. At least they then get out of your way!
