Hello, 🎵Synge 🎶, :-) I’ll work out how to type that eventually. Lol, I hope you win this week, I don’t want to go the same way as logopetria, up against Maccatheknacca 😂

Opened my account with a walk and left a stupid square in the middle ;-)

It looks as though you've got more of a contest this week lulu!

I'm 15-0 up against Kilomi Kepapa but I don't think this will last. He runs nearly every day, sometimes twice :-o

Oh Little Nemo. It’s stressing me out! We were both out running this evening and he logged his run before me with a lot of the same squares! I’m kicking myself as normally I log everything straight away. Hope you have a good week.

Hi ferret! I think I've got as high up the league as I'll go - just about into the Top Twenty! It's all pretty intense above me and I think they're mainly urban dwellers. I got the impression logopetria could have run into pretty much every square if he'd wanted to - I used to live close to his bit of Bristol myself. I'm now in South Devon in a rural location with a few country lanes and a few footpaths, so lots of squares are out of reach.

Anyway, you'll be pleased to hear that I'm planning to start my scoring for the week with a run tomorrow!

Enjoy your run in S.Devon scenery :-) I’ll be riding the usual route/squares to local pool & then straight on through grid with 🚲 buddy up some Dorset hills, some of this may be walked 😂

A nice run this morning to grab a few more squares and to try and make it harder for SwAckie ;) We do not yet have all squares covered so more work to do.

About This Thread

Sign up here:

This game is still in the prototype stage, so it's not quite up to standard yet, but I thought it'd be useful to get your thoughts.

Unfortunately, with apologies to those of you without watches, it's a GPS game ONLY, so you will need some kind of GPS upload, whether that's from a Garmin, app, file or whatevs.

I've entered you all for the game, and generated a set of matches at random. Every Monday at midday, the matches will end and you'll be paired up against someone else. The pairing will be based on the ranking system, so if you've improved your ranking by winning your match, you'll be paired against someone of a similar ranking. Likewise, if you lose, you'll be put up against someone else who lost - at least until the rankings all settle down a bit after a few months.

I've set your home location as per your Fetch profile. You'll be able to change this once I've built that functionality. One of you has a latitude/longitude of 0,0, so unless you do most of your running off the coast of Africa, you're destined to lose for now. Give me a shout if that's you. More updates to the location system soon.

When you follow the link, you'll see a series of matches - one of which will be your match. Click the scores to see the scoring grid and (for your own match) your map. Your opponent will not be able to see your map, just you. Click anywhere on the score grid, and it'll zoom in to that square on the map, so you can check its boundaries.

Two daily points for running, one daily point for biking, and double points if you're the first person through that square that day (based on the time you log the training, not the time you ran/biked it).

Undoubtedly there will be some bugs and questions about game play, so please do shout out if anything seems to be wrong. Please watch [this thread] to share your issues, to avoid reporting the same issue twice.

From now on, you can win up to 36 ranking points per match, broken down as follows:

12 dependent on ranking
Based on how your ranking compares to your opponent, just like it is currently.

12 based on how close the match was
If you more-or-less shared the squares, you'll get 6 points each; if it's a walkover you'll pick up the whole 12. If you win 63-42, you get 12*63/(63+42) points, and your opponent will get 12*42/(63+42) points.

12 based on the total squares owned
There are 225 squares in total. So if the score was 63-42, you'd each pick up (63+42)/225*12 points each. A reward to both players for exploring as much of the grid as possible.
