Re: more Xong stats - Game 632 in the books!
well, after days of imbalance, in Game 632 all 8 subcategories were once again tied:
Games 632
wins by 1 by 3 by 5 by 7+ total
rwins: 219 + 70 + 24 + 3 = 316
bwins: 210 + 88 + 15 + 3 = 316
xongpoint wins: red 109 blue 99
xongpoint losses: red 111 blue 110
rovrpts: 219 + 210 + 120 + 21 = 570 1.8038 per win
bovrpts: 210 + 264 + 75 + 21 = 570 1.8038 per win
sumrpts = 19812 avrg = 31.3481 per game
sumbpts = 19812 avrg = 31.3481 per game
sumhex = 40382 avrg = 63.8956 per game
sumleg = 154620 avrg = 244.652 per game
sumturn = 17968 avrg = 28.4304 per game
sumsnake = 9935 avrg = 15.7199 average turn appears
total legs per turn = 8.6053
legs per hex = 3.82893368 , surplus = 1168.4 over 3.800
total red lasts = 308
blue turns = 8830
red turns = 9138
points per turn, red = 2.16809
points per turn, blue = 2.24371
hexes used = (19812 + 19812 - 632)/2 = 19496
efficiency = (19496/40382) = 0.482789
killed = 40382 - 19496 = 20886
killed per game = 33.0475
after 632 measured games:
(again holo = odd hexes, odd legs generated on board, hole = odd hex, even leg, helo = even hex, odd leg and hele = even hex, even leg board)
holo hole helo hele
r 79 79 79 79 316
b 79 79 79 79 316
after all games: 1096
holo hole helo hele
r 137 137 137 137 548
b 137 137 137 137 548
*****
of note here is the number 137 in the grand total lines, the Fine Structure Constant of Physics lately featured in the youtubes.

Possible way for me to publish!!!
Just a moment...
Can anyone see this????
it says "just a moment" but if you click it, it goes to my game site.
then you have to click on the first pic to get the text description.
i have to shrink the view down to 89% on my laptop to see it better.

Xong is downloadable on dropbox!
OK, I uploaded Xong to dropbox.com. If you want to try it you will need 290 megs of space on your windows hard drive. the zipfile is 144 megs, but i think you can unzip it from dropbox to your hard drive directly. I do not have an Apple version because I did not find the apple version of jdk1.7.0_45 java binary library and the Xong was made with that and is now deprecated and wont work with the newer java shit. same with linux! Of the 290 megs, some 278 of it is this windows java library.
Then the 5 sample games take up another 10.90 megs because of all the jpg figures with descriptions.
The actual Xong-specific files take up another 376 K. so the missing 724 K I must have squandered.
To get permission I just need your email then I can add you to the members (currently just 2 of us) and we can play email games.
The link is Dropbox - xong.zip - Simplify your life but i have to add you before you can unzip it to your hard drive's xong folder (directory).
Thank you!
