For our first week of free play, I ended up playing Can’t Stop again with one other classmate, Boran. We had a 1v1 duel marathon of Can’t Stop. It got very competitive at times and we both enjoyed playing. It was a close race for the first half hour, but I ended winning 4 or 5 games in row after that to give myself quite the lead over my opponent. I think I may have just gotten really lucky since both Boran and I were utilizing similar strategy of trying to be the first to take the middle lanes of 6,7 and 8. Nonetheless, it was competitive throughout and we ended up cranking out games in like 4-8 minutes spans. It was a complete rapid fire pace of play since it was just the two of us.
I kind of saw myself as a leader in this game because I had already won so many games in the previous session of Can’t Stop. I felt like I knew exactly what i was doing entering the game. I also tried giving Boran advice when he went for risky plays with numbers like 2, 3, 11, and 12. Whether or not he listened to me was a different story. He may have gotten super lucky and beat me that way, or completely threw the game for himself.
