@john4p and lifeschool

Glad you liked my work!

To be sincere I looked for a similar cheat-sheet before starting the round but I couldn't find anything so I decided to do it myself!

I also made a 4 page list, and have now rolled both lists together.

I think there are some very similar questions designed to catch the player out, with only one word difference, so I'm not sure we caught all the variations. But its a complete enough list for me, and have sent it off to the Lemon website super mod to add to the database.

I made sure your name came first in the credits, as I only added and changed a few things, and you typed all this up!

Thank you very much, mate, I can't wait to see it on the Lemon website!

Beat the 9th track at the beginning this time (after track 5), then 1-2-3-4-6. Went game over due to too much sand on track 8.

We're coming into the final week of this round.

Just two EAB players so far.

Where's everyone gone?

Thanks liviux! Bought most stuff in class 3 to make sure I'll complete the game. So a lot of room for (cash) improvement.

Yes, I think that there's room for an improvement... I played another few times without completing the game, though, because the last races are really hard if oil and sand are in the "wrong places"... hopefully I'll find some time to try to improve my score by the end of the week... I saw that we are at least 3 competing for the gold, that's cool!

I can recommend to do tracks 7-9 first, even in class 3. They seem to be slightly easier if you play them first.

Yes good round, looking forward to the scores of the final week.

capehorn - Same here. We both have the same skill for this game - and there is a difficulty spike which is hard to get beyond for anyone, and I tried lots of times.

I put you correct score on the board, so if you can fix your post score that would be great. We are only counting completed races - so you completed 11 races and failed race 12, giving 11 million points.

That's a really useful list. I'll just point out that I once got a particuarly bad set of responses so I went for this one and he dropped the price. Although I did it again later and he kicked me out, so I think it belongs in the random section

Edit: In fact I just managed to get a screenshot of his response...

I did improve my score... I don't know if I'll try again... it depends on john4p and linesmachine I think...

It's a tough game, my score is certainly beatable because I spent money for things I didn't need but, when you are at the hard level, it is risky to not buy some extras and to not repair the car...

Capehorn - there is still time to update the list, as its still in my out box. I presume you are talking about the TSA line rather than **** *** etc, as this is also a response?

Yes, for a second I thought the *** *** ***** **** *** *** was a divider in the list, just realised it isn't!

Had today off work so gave this a whirl. Anything beyond Class 1 I'm not quite getting to grips with at the moment. However I do prefer this game to the sequel.
