Games

The in-game currency, nuggets, is made by playing games. Games have individual daily play-limits, and there is also a site-wide daily winnings limit of 3000 nuggets. Limits are soft, in that if you have won 2999 nuggets so far and you win 36 nuggets on your next game, you receive the full 3035 nuggets. Each game has its own scoring method for the High Score table.


Echolocation

Four wasps stole nuggets and retreated to their nest; you need to discover in which holes the wasps are lurking. By standing at the edge of the nest, you can send sound-waves in and listen to where they come out in order to determine the wasps' positions. To get a higher score (and more nuggets), use as few sound-waves as possible. The tiles around the outside are labelled as follows:

"X" indicates that you have not emitted a sound-wave into the nest from that spot, and a sound-wave has not exited from that spot.

"#" indicates a deflection. The number increases incrementally per click. The number does not indicate how many times the sound-wave was deflected inside the nest.

"A" indicates an absorption, meaning that a wasp was hit directly with a sound-wave (be careful though, you could have an indirect absorption).

"R" indicates a reflection. A reflection occurs if a wasp is at the edge of the nest, or by deflecting off of two wasps at the same time.

Echolocation tends to take more time to learn, but be persistent! Once it clicks, it is a lot of fun. For more detailled instructions with some visual aid, check out the Echolocation rules page.

Cave In!

A tunnel has caved in, and it's your job to clear out the rubble! Click any block that is adjacent to at least one other block of the same type, and they will vanish. Your objective is to have as few blocks left over as possible at the end.

Unlike most similar games, there is no advantage to clearing away large groups of blocks in one go. The twist is that the endgame is very important, and advanced planning can really help you out: once you get down to the last few blocks, each individual block is worth more and more; the last block is worth 17 nuggets on its own.

Mushroom Meals

Mushroom Meals is a mushroom-placement puzzle, and your goal is to ensure that there is one type of each mushroom on every square plate. That may sound simple, but the mushrooms must also be unique down every column and across every row on the 9x9 table. It may be helpful to get a pen and paper out to make notes if you have a particularly tough board to solve.

To change the mushroom type, click the square until you reach the desired type. You can lock the mushroom in place by right clicking on the square (it will turn red). Unlock the square by right-clicking again.

Note: This game is still under construction and the difficulties may be off.
