New Tavern

This is where you spade, shovel and sickle. Or is it reap?

New Tavern

Post by Superbuck » Fri Oct 22, 2010 9:56 pm

I've never really spaded anything before so this might not be the right format for something like this, but I thought we could start jotting down what we've learned or assumed so far from testing it out

-both baron and faucet seem to be on the outer rows only. Meaning, I guess, that you just roll the dice on which direction you head
-for beer lenses: jick confirmed on forums that they were outside the normal item drop mechanics, I don't really get this completely
-new fam is a volley but possibly a little different than a blood faced volleyball?
-there's some special mechanics re: the pool table betting. I never lost the first table but couldn't win the others. That was with no drunkenness and just normal gear (no cue or chalk)

-and of course, the whole place looks awesome and is hilarious

My bet is that pool works roughly like the current table, but this makes it spadeable and not pvp. The various levels are probably just various goodness of opponents in the PVP version. Someone have pantsless have a go at it.

Also, I made a kolspading thread: http://kolspading.com/forums/viewtopic. ... 1520#p1520

From my current knowledge, post-change:

axxx
abbbx
abbbx
abbbx
aaaaa

Here there are three types of square:

x - no special squares.
a - it appears that there will be two special squares in these squares
b - possibilities for the third special square.

It's definite that the baron (3rd special square) is not always on the left and bottom edges, however the other two (adventurer and faucet) seem to be.

Sorry, assumed the KoLSpading link was to pool spading and thus missed it. Interesting that that sw corner is the only non-edge one people have seen the faucet on; I'd be curious to see where the adventurer was on that map. Could well be a X turns spent in cellar though, something like 3-X for adventurer and X+Y (X+Y<=12 to conserve what people have been seeing by doing it around the edges)?
