You can blame Graham Haslehurst for this. Or perhaps I should just let jokes pass by without doing this kind of thing...
1. Damn you Barnesy!
2. Siteswaple Shirley?!
3. Go on then. Siteswapordle https://siteswapexplorer.com/siteswapordle/index.html?utm_source=share
I'll have to fix the redirect for the old one tomorrow - time for the school run!
This is really cool, could you put a link to or animation of the pattern once you have solved it, like they do with phrasle
Maybe! I’ve not seen phrasle, will have a look. I could also put something in the share text to link to siteswap explorer but that’s probably too mixed a message!
Oh yeah, more than a mixed message, it would spoil the answer! I’ll see some time if I can add a link to the success message.
I thought it was just a flippant response but now I’m enjoying the game too!
The work I put into it was comically slight: I just replaced the word lists and gave it a new name. Now that it has users I’ll have to make sure it keeps working!
Oof, I feel like this would be a lot easier with my state explorer! But I sadly broke it for the time being... :(
I got ...
1 gold, 2 green, 3 green, 4 gray, 5 gray.
That leaves 0, 6, 7, 8, 9 as different digits, if needed. Or also more of 2, 3, 1.
Now, the 1 can only belong, where I guessed 4, so as to not bite with the 3 landing. It will then from there land, where I guessed 5.
So, then is still open where the 2 and 3 come from.
I musn't now let the fifth position land on the 3, 'cos the 2 could not anymore be accessed ( but by a 1 before it, which was wrong, let alone that 1 then not be accessed ). So my fifth position will have to land on the 2, done so by 2 on it ( the former ).
That then leaves 2 or 7 to access the 3 from first position:
7 gray, 2 green, 3 green, 1 green, 2 green.
Only 2 2 3 1 2 left now, and was right, all green °•yipih•° :oD
My strategy is guess 97531 & 86420 which at the very least tells me what all the candidate digits are. So far more often than not I get enough information to work out the correct answer on the 3rd guess. This actually makes a very nice little logic puzzle!
I also use the first two guesses to get all the digits. I think that's a good strategy, but often there is still more than one possible solution after that. (I have used 12345 and 67890 or something similar.)
I have used more guesses than necessary at least twice due to not paying attention (placing a digit in a position where I should know it didn't belong because it was yellow there). But yeah, without mistakes like that it should be possible to get pretty good stats.
I like how such different aspects as thinking in orbits and having to close orbits, their loop, then divisibility of the sum by 5 ( leaving only 5, 10, 15, .. multiples of 5 for sum ), then bare guessing to start off, and knowledge about states, in complexity melt to one siteswap.
Very fun, thank you for making it :)
Is there a reason it doesn't like siteswaps that start with 0? E.g. it doesn't accept 00555 or 05550.
Glad people are enjoying it!
The code should contain a list of every suitable siteswap. It could of course validate entries instead, but what seems to be working on the site is my half hour hack!
My mistake meant that everything starting with a zero wasn't on that list. I can certainly enter 00555 here, so I think it is a caching thing if you still can't.
I was testing in an incognito tab as I'd already done today's, so would have assumed it wouldn't depend on the same one as my normal browser? But maybe not, either way it seems to now work in an incognito tab so I assume you're right about it being caching...
Oh, I think it may also have been because I just moved to a new host and the redirect from the version linked at the top wasn't working any more. And I don't think I had applied the fix to that version.
Easiest answer was to delete the old one and do some work! The correct link is https://siteswapexplorer.com/siteswaple
I was asked if Siteswaple could be made more difficult. Right now I'm not entirely sure that I succeeded...
