    I got onto level 7 for the first time last night. I got an incredibly easy field at Lv.6 and guessed correctly whenever it was necessary. The level 7 game was too hard, though. I hit a Voltorb very early and got thrown back to Lv.1.

    Also beat my old "coins in a single game" record. The current one is 864 coins.

    This fandom is full of so many whiners. They can't change anything without people complaining, but if we go too long without a change people complain about that too.

    Don't like the game? Too bad! You don't have to play it!

    Want the Pokemon/TMs/items and don't like the game? Too bad! Play it or go without! Complaining will get you nowhere.

    I've hit 7 a few times, and if I paid attention more I'm sure I'd hit it more often or get further.

    I make dumb mistakes like hitting a 0 value/5 Voltorb because I see the 0. >_>

    I changed my mind on it now, Voltorb Flip > Slots.
    I'd still like to be able to buy coins though..

    yay, my record is now level 5.

    Voltorb flip is fun because of the tactics required, but I do hope that in the main gen 5 games they'll keep the slots.

    Or just trade the Pokémon from a friend, a DPt cart or migrating it via Pal Park, and buy the items from the much easier and funner Veilstone American/Japanese Game Corner or the Japanese HGSS Game Corners.

    Speaking about whining, I'm beginning to despise those who whine about the 'unpleasable fanbase' and 'fanwank'; if you disagree with the reasons of why I hate, criticize or complain about something, just don't read it and learn to deal with it.

    You've never read the Warcraft forums, then.

    As far as whining about the slots, let me tell you something. I live in Nevada. NEVADA. Home to Las Vegas. Nobody here minds if there's a slot machine or a poker game or what have you in a videogame. There's a casino in any town with any sort of size, and a slot machine area in any large gas station otherwise. I live in a small city and there are at least seven casinos around that I can think of off the top of my head.

    Slot machines are not the doom of civilization they seem to be portrayed as.

    I wish they'd kept the slots (and card flip from Gen II, I enjoyed that!), because they were a nice distraction, but I'm also glad they introduced the new minigame.

    My only problem with the flip game itself is that when you fail it sometimes drags you straight back to level one or two. I wouldn't mind if it took you down one level every time you failed, but I've had clean runs from level 1-6, then failed on level seven and been dragged back to level one again. It's really disheartening, when you make one unlucky guess (usually 50/50) and have to work your way back up again. Without the card-marking feature I would find this game virtually unplayable for any length of time.

    I'd also like to buy coins. It gives those of us who suck at this sort of thing the opportunity to still have access to the enormously useful TMs. I'm not too bad at it, but after playing it for several hours to get 10k coins (for one move, no less) I can safely say I preferred the slots.

    As for whining about it...it makes us feel better to know there are other people who have the same problems as us. If you don't have those problems, that's fantastic, but those of us who do would like to rant about them until we feel better, thank you very much.

    This is probably my only annoyance with the mini-game.

    The most frustrating of these guesses happen when you know that there are two 2s remaining, in the four cells that are covered by two rows and two columns. If you chicken out at that point, you'll get a certain amount, we'll call this N. If you guess incorrectly, you'll get 0, but if you guess correctly, you'll get 4N. Assuming the chances of guessing correctly are 50/50, you have a better return if you guess. Poker players would call this "3:1 pot odds".

    But actually, your chances are slightly higher than 50/50, because if you guess incorrectly, you might hit a 1 instead of a Voltorb, which then allows you to win the board anyway. So your pot odds are more than 3:1. So it's worth guessing in these situations...

    What's the maximum level, and is there a prize for beating it?

    My highest is level 8 but I haven't beaten it yet and I play voltorb Flip More than I play the actual game but I have gotten to the point where getting to level 5 is really easy but getting past it is difficult.

    It seems to me the best solution would be to bring back buying coins, but at about 10x the cost, while maintaining the slots and VF but at about 1.5-2x the pay out.

    That way, the people who like the games can play as much as they want, while the people who don't like the games (I hate both) can run through the E4 repeatedly.

    On VF, my highest was level 4... I can't figure it out for the life of me. I know all about what the numbers mean and stuff, but I do all the math in my head and rule out as many possible Voltorb cards as possible, and still seem to hit the guy right at the worst possible time.
