    Who would have thought…

    …that the real Advancing Wall of Doom would be the 121 entries to attempt to rate and leave feedback on in 2 weeks!

    As I was thinking about how to schedule this into the next two weeks I thought up some rough stats based on how past compo playing/rating has gone:

    • You should play and rate 8.6 games per day of the two weeks if you want to hit the deadline.
    • If you assume an  average handling time per game of 3 minutes you are looking at 6 hours of just getting the games to the point where you are playing them.
    • If you assume an average playing time per game of 2 minutes you are looking at 4 hours of total play time to get through all the entries.
    • Given the average handling and playing times above you could earmark about 45 minutes of LD time per day for two weeks to finish on time.

    Phew.. well, I better get cracking.  I must admit I haven’t had much of a chance to play more than a few so far.  The rating and feedback is so important though.  I know I really appreciate the time people put into playing and leaving thoughts on my game so I try and do the same.

    Great compo everyone!  I can’t wait to see what everyone created…
