  1. Just a last thought. I would be agreeable that the skill gaming poilcy be refined in more detail as to games of hazard, chance and skill. The games of chance exist because people play them. I'm not whining that I'm butt-hurt on losing some L's to games like No Devil, but rather that LL arbitrarily allows such and such while banning another similiar, without a clear defined policy. I would applaud a Linden server dedicated to skill games so that scripts could actually have an AI that allows games as Chess, Checkers, Go, etc. Scripting limits don't allow 1000's lines of code, making even a simple but good chess engine like the open source, "Crafty" possible in SL. Yes, I need to reign in my personal flaws that keep me trying the current games in SL, but I'm hoping a new or very defined policy makes big changes in SL gaming. Developers will be forced to be more creative if some walls are put up in the current line of thinking.
  2. Since LL pulled the plug on Zyngo some time ago, a new game of chance has taken it's place, "No Devil". The same elements are in this game, when truly it is akin to rolling the dice and not too different than Bingo. It is pure gambling when for example, on 1st spin, one might see the Spider 2x and 3x multipliers revealed. It's very possible you will still lose, and another example, one can nearly clear the board and sit like a monkey pressing next turn maybe 8 or 10 times and gaining no further score, losing the game, when even 1 tile clicked would net a win of the prize. The 'Feels Bad' effect is often a result of playing this game; You may win or lose regardless of skill in playing due to the heavy element of chance. LL should revise their skill gaming policy and all such games should be banned. I want to disbelieve that chance plays a role, but my RL bank account disagrees lol The heavily-weighted-by-casino owners/gamblers Lindex is a big chunk of LL's cash flow. It might be a while before they decide to shake things up and redo the skill game policy. It just seems they turn a blind eye when comes to psuedo-skill gaming, though even when Zyngo was revised to incorporate some real skill (Zyngo Wyld), it was canned by powers that be and even it's creator is left wondering why when quite similiar games were later allowed to thrive.
