Beginner Winner!


Quick Tic-Tac-Toe • Completed 10 games

I can’t begin to tell you how frustrated I am that I am so close to finishing the ‘main’ part of RDR2 that I couldn’t land it before midnight, and so while in the middle of the last mission I had to pause it and grab a quick-and-easy achievement on iOS. I am quietly optimistic that there’ll be an RDR2 achievement tomorrow though, so that’s something.

Let’s not get too carried away. This is a fairly basic achievement for a fairly basic level of effort. After already having a few games up my sleeve, it really was a case of smashing out five or six games quickly – Win, Lose or Draw.

And I did a little from all three.

Did I mention tomorrow is a Red Dead achievement? Mega-hype!

4 Move Win! — December 2, 2018

4 Move Win!

Quick Tic-Tac-Toe • Won a game in 4 moves

There’s something quite cathartic about noughts and crosses … but there’s also a sense of relief that comes with being able to earn an achievement while your internet is out for three days (technician scheduled for Tuesday).

This one was fairly simple, and it goes to my default noughts and crosses tactic of the ‘L’ shaped manoeuvre. I’m not going to beat around the bush … it’s an unstoppable tactic, and when even the computer AI struggles, you get a great sense of accomplishment.

Without the internet, I haven’t played a heap of my consoles today, so it’s another win for iOS.
