    the rules are simple.

    use any rotation system.

    allowable randmizers. memoryless (not recomended), history, or 7 piece bag. (seperate leaderboards wil be kept for the different randomizers)

    Gravity. 0g or higher.

    no more than 3 previews and hold. TDS and DTET users, sorry, you got too many previews to work with.

    You must clear ONLY Tetrises. If you clear a non tetris, the challenge ends.

    Memory 6 roll

    zaphod77:203 tetrises:ti-ars, 1/256 G

    johnberhenry:17 tetrises:SRS:0G


    jujube:50 tetrises:SRS,20g


    Nobody that brave. [​IMG]

    btw, that 39 tetris score is NOT my best. but i don't have proof of it. I will do a better one for history 6 rolls.

    did you mean enter below ceiling? if that's the case, can i recommend that rule be removed for the sake of allowing scores from games that don't give you that option? i get the feeling you want this challenge to be as open as possible, and i could see that option being more important if this were a secret grade competition (or anything that requires the player to stack high).

    i'll give it a go later [​IMG]

    oh, what about well width? i'm assuming 0G + 7 bag + 12 wide = easier because of more placement options.

    No, enter below frame:


    It is a Tetris Attack challenge, no?

  4. allowable randmizers. memoryless (not recomended) history, or 7 piece bag.

    Should there be another comma? If so, what do you mean by history?

    yep. never played it.

    edit: how would you make tetrises in Tetris Attack? i'm confused.

    Here is a video of jujube completing Tetris Zone Master mode with only tetrises.

  9. I did 36 in a row in TDS Marathon once. Think that's my best...

    okay, i see my challenge wasn't thought out well enough.

    I will edit the first post, and set up the leaderboards.

    That said, getting 50 in a row in 20g with bag makes it seem that perhaps bg is too easy? will wait and see if anyone breaks 200 tetrises.

    Oh, btw. i just got 203 tetrises. and i'd have gotten a LOT more if it wasn't fora couple misdrops that prevented me from reclaiming the field without skimming.

    Anyone else think i should just retire the challenge? [​IMG]

    I think i've proven that the arika randomizer is fair with 3 piece preview and hold.
  11. tepples

    That's the randomizer that keeps a list of the last ceil(nPieceTypes/2) pieces you got and tries to give you one not in that list. (For the set of seven one-sided tetrominoes, the list has four elements.) TGM, TAP, and Ti use a loose history randomizer, which occasionally repeats a piece. Lockjaw has both loose and strict history randomizers.

    But if a randomizer is fair at <1G, that doesn't automatically make it fair at 20G. For instance, Arika rotation without floor kicks makes I tetrominoes more difficult to handle.
  12. Zaphod77

    Hard to handle, but not impossible, as demonstrated by the GM glass players. [​IMG]

    But my 203 tetris run that only ended because of a few misdrops is proof that the randomizer itself is fair in TI.

    The next level of the all tetris challenge is 20g with infinite lock delay and ARS. if I can master that, then all i have to do is learn how to handle the speed. [​IMG]
  13. Okay, thanks for clarifying.

    What about a memoryless without holding, zaphod? That would be hard enough to make it interesting.
  14. Zaphod77

    Zaphod77 Resident Misinformer

    i think memoryless with hold is hard enough. I refuse to even try it.

    However, the other two main randomizers may be interesting without hold in this challenge.

    Bastet randomiser anyone? [​IMG]

    from the first post in this thread

    if you want to keep this thread going, can i suggest these stats be more specific? Tetris Zone Master mode != Tetris DS Marathon level 20 start != LJ rhythm etc.

    Does this get me on the board?

    game: Tetramino

    rotation system: TOD M4

    randomizer: Tetramino* (very close to Memoryless)

    preview: 1

    hold: Off

    gravity: <1G

    score: 12 homers

    video: DivX

    *Tetramino randomizer:

    87.5% of the time, memoryless

    12.5% of the time, the next item in the repeating sequence [IJLOSTZ]

    this was done because mod 7 is expensive on an NES CPU

    well i think there's little point in continuing the thread. but I still think it's a worthwhile training challenge. once i readjusted my stacking strategy i found it easy.
