Let’s Spin Education

As a class, we got to travel to Chuck E. Cheese to explore the gaming world. Because it was my first time at the arcade, I took it upon myself to be a big kid first and play some games before I came to focus on the assignment.

You may have seen this game in some of our other classmates’ blogs. I chose Treasure Quest which was one of the games based on luck. The player will insert a token for a chance to spin. The goal of the game is to get the maximum number tickets possible. In this game, 100. With the help of the Professor’s counting technique, we came to figure out that there is only about a 1 in 50 chance of having the cursor land on the big prize. I played about 5-6 times and the most I got was 25 tickets. Hey! It’s better than 1.

It is hard to suggest possible mechanic and rule changes to such a simplistic game. This is something I had a hard time with because I didn’t want to suggest some of the same rules my classmates came up with. Instead, I wanted to bring something new to the table. Look forward to me editing my post! I will think of something, something good hopefully!
