After 119 Days
It finally happened. On Friday, life had its way and I lost my daily achievement streak. Since June 3, I had managed to acquire at least one achievement every single day, and on September 30, I did not record one. That does not mean, however, that I did not get one.

On Friday, there was a high school football game, and my oldest child was there. It ran very, very late, but while she was out, I started playing the next level of Lego The Hobbit. I got to one of the end sections of that level when she let us know they were headed back (it was an away game, but it was in the local area). We figured we'd leave at that point, stop for gas, and be there in plenty of time. Plenty of time was right. Once we arrived at the high school, she let us k now they were 22 minutes away.

At 11:40, I realized I had not gotten an achievement yet, so I pulled out my phone and loaded up the Android version of Wordament, which I had been saving for just such an occasion. I had actually planned to use when we went on vacation in a couple months and I would be totally away from the Xbox to see if I could keep it going. I got two achievements while playing the game before midnight.

Here's the rub. Since this is an Android game and not going directly through Microsoft's servers like the Xbox does, I did not get immediate credit for the achievement. I guess it didn't time stamp it or whatever it needed to do to acknowledge it as being September 30. Looking back at the achievements won, I can see they are treated like those that are won "offline." They don't have an official timestamp, so they actually would not count towards the streak since those must be won online and have an official timestamp. Good to know now, I suppose.

Will I do this again? I don't know. The last one was an accident and sort of happened before I even started doing it consciously. I think I got about three weeks first. I would wager the next will happen much the same way. I'll just be playing and one day, I'll happen to notice that I've gotten one a day for a few weeks, and I'll decide to ensure I can get something easy if I need to. In this case, I wasn't prepared for a quick one when I needed it, or I didn't acknowledge that I was as short on time as I was.

However, it is important to remember in these situations that in no way will this affect my (real) life. These games are purely for escape and entertainment, and losing an "achievement streak" won't negatively impact me, and the real life goes on.

Losing it still kind of sucked though.

what is battleship like? based on the film?

Comment by Dr Geek 3 at 16:17 on 02 Feb 2017

No, just based on the board game. It is fun as a two player, but there are only so many miraculous moves one can accept before thinking the computer might be cheating.
