The purpose of this thread will be to announce and discuss my latest videos. In particular, ones that don't fit well into another thread. I expect to increase by rate of video production the rest of 2020 and beyond.

To start, here is a fun, simple, and short video on how to force a win in checkers with two kings vs. one. I welcome all comments.

Checkers?

We'll all look forward to additional videos:

Rock-Paper-Scissors
Hopscotch
Go Fish
Crazy Eights
Name That Tune

Way too much time on your hands.

I'm thinking of getting two more models and doing videos on some silly games one my play on a poker night like:

1. Acey-deucey
2. Guts
3. Screw Your Neighbor

I am open to other suggestions.

Drinking games like @$$hole and bulls$!t?

Both have strategy to them.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Screw Your Neighbor?

You regained my interest. But then, you've never seen my neighbor. How did you know?

When I saw the title, I assumed you meant how to win with the 1 King. That would have been impressive.

Reminds me of chess videos on how to win with Knight and Bishop. Very possible but need to know what you’re doing.
If anyone gives you 10,000 to 1 on anything, you take it. If John Mellencamp ever wins an Oscar, I am going to be a very rich dude.

FWIW, I liked the pyraminx video. You could do a series on other cubes/cuboids/twisty puzzles. I would suggest—fewer rotations, especially when you start an algorithm. It helps to follow along when the only variable is the move itself and not an X/Z rotation.

Angela and I just shot a video on that very topic!

However, the next one is FAQ on video poker. I welcome all comments.

Twister?
So many better men, a few of them friends, were dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things lived on, and so did I.
