  • Luck plays a big role

    Both challenges have 22 moves, but one takes me 10 times as long to solve.

    Agreed 100%.

      It's funny how some games with the same number of moves take way longer. Luck plays a part, but not sure how big a part. If you play a large set of games, I think luck (chance) is reduced and other factors like strategy play a larger part. Statistics 101.

        Luck would play a bigger role at higher levels. The lower levels can be solved fairly quickly regardless of luck or strategy.

          I have a feeling that the levels always have one hard and one easy one; but then again perhaps that's just the lady doing her magic: call her magic chance. :P

        Do people actually strategize or do you play intuitively? I've recently advanced a few levels on it by playing more or less intuitively but not as hastily as I used to...

          I'm at level 14 and I have to spend a lot of time strategizing. I sit, look at where the animals vs houses are then I start in, sometimes realizing I have made a wrong turn - reset and start again. Right now I'm lucky if I get two rounds of the three correct - I'm finding it slow going. I know that I have far more time to do this than others, but after an hour with PD, I finish it off, usually with unfinished rounds.

            Intuition has really improved my performance with Pet Detective. I don't even know how I did it, it was almost uncanny!

              It really irks me on Pet Detective when I manage to return all the pets in game one and then fail badly in the following two games, grrrr!

                Me again! Feeling pleased with myself today, finally moved up a level by returning ALL pets but no doubt it will get harder now!

                That is such a rare occurrence. PD is one of my weaker games. when i do get them all returned, i know it's by chance, because i'm rarely able to figure out the routes. C'est la vie!

                  Same! I love our Problem Solving games, but Pet Detective always gets the best of me -_-

                It fascinates me that there are so many different routes and some are easier than others but I love the challenge of trying to work out the best route to take. This is one of my favorite games.

                  I like the challenge of PD too. I can get all returned once fairly well on my level,have rarely returned all 2 out of 3 games. And yes it gets harder as you move up. I have been stuck for a looong time

                    I've found I score better on this game when I guess and hurry up and play vs. slowing down and counting each square.
