Race Completed Page
With the release of Plates Across America®'s new Race game feature, we also introduced a new "Race Completed" page. This new page becomes accessible after both players have completed the race. This page shows the outcome, stats for the race, your stats against this opponent as well as the full puzzle and answer history. It is the Answers feature of this page that we felt was worth writing a little more about.
As we were discussing the design for the Race feature, once this idea was proposed, we all immediately felt that it would be incredibly interesting and useful to be able to compare your answers with your opponent's answers. You can use this to improve your game or just to see what sorts of words your opponent decides to use.
This comparison works well since each player is shown exactly the same puzzle sequence, so you can really compare apples-to-apples (so to speak). Notice that one user may see more puzzles if they require more to complete the route.
We think Answers comparison is one of the more interesting features of the new Race game. If you try it out, please let us know what you think.
