    Cribbage is pretty simple. You probably just aren't used to keeping score between rounds.

    Anyway, don't play games with people in a psych ward. Too much chance of one getting violent for some random stupid reason.

          Your game sucks, anon. Every move the first player takes immediately sets their opponent up to capture.

            moron. It's not my game and you just haven't figured out the strategy! Try overshooting a single to avoid recapture by your opponent. Try drawing away his pieces with a number of trades so you can get the pieces that would reciprocally capture out of the way. I had the exact same concern with the game until I figured out some strategies.

        The rules are.

        There's complexity to play (and in cribbage as well), but comparing it to Cones of Dunshire means it has elaborate and complex rules. Which cribbage does not.

          No it just has many arbitrary rules that I doubt result in much emergence. Here is a game of mine not yet published due to laziness. If you have a lot least one group on the board you must orthogonally expand one of these. Alternatively you can split off a stone from a group of yours and move it queenwise onto an enemy group, such that the stone creates a new group (not adjacent to any of your other stones orthogonally) and all stones in the enemy group are removed. Following this you place a third group somewhere on the board. Singletons cannot be captured. You may leap over your own stones only. The first player who can do neither action wins.

          Every rule does at least two things; for instance the no capture of singletons rule means singletons can be used to block access to bigger groups but also ensures a longer game for the given board size as all captures will at least be dominoes. The whole basis of the game is that there is an ever-increasing number of groups and thus the game must end and there is an incentive to make large groups to target more of the board. This is what the designer Mark Steere calls "architecture"

                Their finitude is trivial and just comes down to an ever-increasing number of pieces. The new games that have followed in the footsteps of Steere involve things like groups gradually growing larger (Oust, Bug by Nick Bentley) or a limited number of groups which grow and die (Tanbo, Rampart) or even an increasing number of groups being the limiting factor like in this

      That's a very common misconception. Mentally ill people have the same chance of being violent as anyone else, and that's before the treatment psych wards provide. I'd rather be with a schizophrenic than a meth addict.

      Better advice is to not make lasting friends with people you meet on the inside, and whatever else you do, for the love of frick do not sleep with anybody or start a relationship, you have no idea what emotional baggage someone has.

        Psych Ward inmates are a subgroup group of crazy people, that have been deemed unfit to dwell among normies, because their behavior is for whatever reason, unacceptable.

        Most crazy people live with their relatives, I've had some near misses with being sectioned myself, and have visited persons in psych ward, who were in because they were not infrequently violent, but were considered "non-culpable", in this particular case, it was a big deaf schizophrenic guy I knew who used to smoke crack and shoplift.
        He had an episode once and threw his mother down the stairs.

    I self-admitted to a psych ward once. It was awful. Much worse than the movies make it seem. I imagine prison's no different. Also everyone else there except for one guy was a junkie in for substance abuse. I played a few games of chess with that guy. Anyway next time I'm just going to go through with suicide.

      There's more options than suicide and psych ward.

      Remember that dude who went to Mexico and blew $20,000 literally on hookers and blow and then decided that maybe life was worth living after all.

      It doesn't need to be so dramatic, but often a change if scenery can help a lot. It costs money, but so does a psychopathic ward suicide can also be expensive sometimes, as your family can be held liable if you cause damage or disruption when you die, though I guess you don't much care if that happens.

        to do that you'd probably need $20,000 and i have maybe $3 if i went through my drawers and found a quarter

            i was never actively suicidal personally, i just had a stress-related breakdown and they took that as me being a danger to myself
            that place was straight up hell though
            the kind of place where if you're not crazy going in after a while you will be
            also they made me squat and cough and most of the staff were on a power trip, they saw us as animals at worst and didn't know how to interact with us at best
            the doctors were pretty cool though
            anyways that was unrelated but for anyone in the thread considering self-admittance i'd strongly recommend against it
            if you're considering it you're still sane enough to alter your course

              I'm sorry your experience was so bad. At my facility I get a private room, handfuls of mind-numbing pills and my own bathroom. The nurses are nice and I don't have to leave my room if I don't want to. Generally boredom only sets in once the psychosis recedes.

      the bigger issue is if you're in that place you often don't have the motivation to do something so dramatic. and almost certainly don't have the money.

      but if you can find a way, if you're right at the edge of the abyss anyhow, the change of scenery is not worthless. get out of town on your own feet, or with a bus ticket, and just head somewhere different. just pick a direction and see how far the road goes. it could all go horribly wrong of course, you could die of exposure or get stabbed by a junkie or eaten by a mountain lion, but what have you got to lose at that point? frick it, roll the dice one more time.
