yer too clever for your own boots, mr. lamkin Wink

many thanks!

even though i have been "driven" to the forum to locate "clues" as to how i can beat the 5-in-a-row game, i am stubborn enough to see if i can figure it out for myself.

a great cross-section here!

i'm form do-or-die wye in the county of kent (UK).

it was nice to see someone from hull who was 80 years old.
also, someone "fairly" near to me in bromley, kent (still too far to pop round for a cup of tea and some advice if i get stuck!)

it is indeed a problem for me.

@ lamkin:

how did you figure out the technique?
was it just a case where you would:
1)place your first piece in a certain place.
2)see where the opponent places his next piece.
4)repeat steps 1 and 2 to see if he placed his 2nd piece in the same place as before?

that's the only way i can see how it could be done. 

i realise that it couldn't be unbeatable, but 9 times out of ten my matches end with stalemate.
all the areas on the board completely filled.

i should mention that i have quite mild dyslexia (which could impede some of my progress!).
the other factor is that some people who attempt these puzzles are just not "wired" that way.
i've witnessed some people claiming others are "not using their brain", and their "little sister can do it in ten attempts".
i try my best to not let this arrogant/egotistical attitude get me down but...
at the end of the day, some of us find it more difficult to visualise the same solutions to problems that others do.


i done it (using someone else's technique of placing 3 in a row before the computer decided to stop you.
i alternated between doing that and performing the obligatory defensive moves, and it became much easier.

i think one of the reasons that i never thought to do 3-in-a-row all the time was because i must have thought "he'll just see that a mile away, what's the point?"

i also thought that i would have to forfeit the nuts i had just one, if i decided to play another game (for practice) and then lose it!

thank god that this was not the case :0

My favorite music artist?  Me! Tongue

Just kidding; I don't actually have a huge ego like that.  Actually, which artist is my favorite depends on when you ask me.  As far as music, it could be Robert Rich, The Chainsmokers, Daft Punk, B. Lustmord, Floex, or anyone in between on most days.

The US (mostly  Wink)

I was born in the US, live in the US at the moment, and have citizenship in the US, but I've been all over.  It's funny how my home is *technically* the US, yet I feel homesick for places outside the US...

Korea (ROK, of course), Kosovo, Australia, Bulgaria, etc. - I miss you!

The robot does not move to the apple cart fast enough to get into it before the carrier drops down for its grab.

My guess is that you haven't shrunk the robot to his regular size before moving him. (Josef moves slower when he's fully extended.)

I've finally gotten back to Machinarium, and I'm still stuck in the same place. I can't get the robot up there on a bottom, top, bottom setting. The robot does not move to the apple cart fast enough to get into it before the carrier drops down for its grab.
I have upgraded my system to iOS 7.1.2, still on an iPad 3rd generation.
