Number Crescent

Postby Rosewinsall » Sun Mar 31, 2019 10:56 pm UTC

This is like Mornington Crescent with Pi Day rules.

Alright so the first number we are trying to will be e.

I'll start with pi

I just recently familiarized myself with the rules of this variant, so forgive me if my strategy here is less than optimal, I'm still trying to feel it out.

...Yeah, I've got to go 13.

I'd hoped there wasn't a Dollis Hill equivalent in this version, but it seems it can't be avoided. There must be some equivalent of the fixed-point theorem with these games, though I can't say I see how it follows from the rules.

I don't usually play these games, but since this is the first Friday in the month, I think I can go complex as e(pi/4)i

Einstein theorized that in a 13 loop one could simply reverse it and square it. This was in his later years though so I don't know if it can be trusted.

Objection! The Einstein rules have been superseded by Hawking.

Wasn't Hawking later proven wrong on that? I'm sure I have a paper on this subject around here somewhere.

I think I've figured out a way to break out of the loop, in another turn or two.
