Woody 99 - Sudoku Block Puzzle by Athena Studio FREE
It's time that I got back into writing this blog. At this very difficult time in the world: we should at least find some time to play puzzles, right?
Woody 99 is only available on the app store. Sorry Android users. It's a point scoring game recommended to me by someone who attended last month's New York Puzzle Party.
I was very skeptical about Woody 99. We've seen this type numerous times. But I do like this.
The object is to score points by filling up rows/columns and the 3x3 grids.
1. Points are awarded for fitting pieces anywhere.
2. 10 points for completing a row/column or grid.
3. If you can do two at the same time: 10 points for the first, 15 for the second and then, maybe 5 points if the piece you placed had 5 tiles.
4. Consecutive turns: 10 points for the row/column/grid. 15 points for the next turn. 20 for the one after that. The longest streak I've gotten was wither 4 or 5.
Woody 99 requires patience! Which is something I lack. Nevertheless, I did get one phenomenal score that put me in the top .1% of the leaderboard. But I think I can do better.
Update 3/23/20: my high score is 14,582 which puts me at #369 on the Leaderboard our of 785,985 players. I really must stop playing this.
