Interesting spin on the theme. I think that creating incremental levels, where the total number of "tiles" started small initially and then grew with subsequent levels, would improve the engagement. When the game first started I thought I had to count the total number. When I figured out I was supposed to count the total for each of the 3, I pretty immediately realized I did not have it in me to do that.

If you started with 10 tiles and then worked your way up to 200+ I feel like it would offer a developing challenge. Also having submit end the game early (instead of having to wait) and then showing the correct numbers would be great additions as well in my opinion. Nice work though


I love the take on the theme. Did not get one correct guess, haha.


I thought this was going to be a "guess as close as possible to the actual count" instead of guess exactly; I can't count all those peeps NEARLY that fast under that kind of time pressure lol


I think this is a funny way to take the theme on. For what it is it all works. It felt like a chore I had not agreed too. After a few goes I found myself asking 'Do I actually want to count these dude?' The answer was no I don't. It was interesting up until that point.


From personal experience, not much to say on what's the fun part of say; "counting" every head within a limited timeframe. Not that engaging outside of speculative numbers and guessing games at a stretch...

Still, in a metaphorical pun. It fits the theme, if nothing else in counting individual lives. :)


That was extremely fun! Nothing more to say, great idea :)
