So I was playing some 2007 Success Mode and Annabelle showed up while I was studying and asked if I needed any help. I was at Level 4 bookworm and had gone on three dates with her.

Her question triggered Fate Cards--I played the Challenge card and she challenged me to a game of Nim. I won (you actually play it out yourself with her) and got some technique and mentality points.

Anyone else come across this? Any idea what other fate card yields are, or if there are abilities from this?

Obligatory, "Holy shit, it's lance."

Can't say I've ever seen that event, but I've played much more 2008 Success and rarely dated Annie in 2007. What is the game itself like?

There are ten stones and you can take one, two, or three. The person who has to take the last one loses.

I went first and took one. She took one, I took three, she took three, I took one and forced her to take one. The whole game gives you a choice between one, two, or three, but when I was picking with two stones left the options were "Take 1" and "Duh, obviously 1"

I picked the latter. I also reloaded to trigger this again (replaying this same week as if I never saw her), but it took me over an hour. The next time I used a Yes card in response to her study help and just got some Mentality points.

I was mainly reloading studying on bookworm lvl. 4 to see what kind of training boosts I could get, but it seems like you only get it once. Then this event popped up, which I've never even heard of before, so I figured it was worth re-entering the forum for. ;)

I've never seen it before. Would be really cool if you could get rare stuff like shuuto spin or refined.

BTW I think you can win at nim every time. (If you go first)

You start with 10: you pick one, there are 9

Now, it will go her-you-her-you-her to finish the game. Whatever she does, do the opposite. So if she does 3, you do 1, and vice versa. If she does 2, you do 2. This way it adds up to 4,T and it will go 9-->5-->1 and she will be forced to pick the last one.

Hi Brewers :)

Austin nailed the explanation of how to win when going first. I would guess that's the way it goes every time, but if she goes first you would just need to hope she doesn't pick one, I guess. I'm not sure what outcome you'd get if you let her win. That'd be worth testing also.

I also don't know if this event is connected with me being Bookworm lvl. 4 or not, or if you need to go on a date with Annabelle first.

I don't think I've ever seen this event, maybe I should dust off my copy of PP07 when I get back in town and see if I can find out more (note: I'll completely forget about this by tomorrow)

also may or may not have passed out upon seeing lance back on the forums so hELLO :D

First things first, holy crap, it's lance! How's it been!

Second, I've gotten this event a couple times in the past, but I don't remember how I did. I think I may have won, but I'm not sure. It's definitely a fun little event.

Hey guys :)

No promises on sticking around, but I have some free time for Power Pros this summer and have been lurking in the forums every now and then. Fleshing out some stuff on the Wiki too when I get a chance.

This event seems to take a lot of reloading to trigger. I haven't gotten it again since I was originally posting this, and the only reason I was reloading so much to begin with was to get the practice boost from being at Lvl. 4 Bookworm. Maybe I'm just unlucky.
