A little while ago I saw a lady playing what looked like a matching game on her iPad.  I've played many of these games but I don't think I've ever seen one quite like this.  Instead of a fixed screen like pretty much every one I've played, it seemed like she was scrolling around all over the place and just touching stuff to make it go away (so I don't think it was a swap type of match but I could be wrong).  I've searched through the store for "jewel" and "matching games" but haven't found anything that seemed right.

Anyone have any ideas, or maybe have a wife that plays a lot of these who might know?

Thanks!



It looked like a family game, right?  Maybe google "touching stuff family jewel wife swap" and see what turns up?

lmao!!!

BEST WORDS EVER SPOKEN!

I always wondered who it was that bought all those cheesy shirts that only someone on vacation should dare wear.

Now I know.
One man's cheesy is another man's freedom of expression slywink

Or yet another man's attire on "Aloha Fridays" at the Catholic HS in Hawaii. Sooo much better than wearing a shirt and tie.

I don't know, maybe it would be nice to feel like you're on vacation everyday icon_lol

Sounds like inadequate shielding to me. The control cavities should have copper tape or at least conductive paint shielding the controls. At least you know the ground wire is doing it's job.

Played for hours and hours and never heard it again. So only in one setup I've noticed it out of... Well numerous. Not concerned anymore. Loving it. My only problem now is, well the drummer alway wants to get louder and that no bueno.

So far I'm super happy w my new rig. Super clean sound to build on, and my effects sound great layered above that. To bad I get interference at our summer jam spot! Oh well , it's only when I'm NOT touching the strings . Any idea what that could be though? It's 50/50 and I really can't ask everyone to turn off their phones . It's only happened here that I know of so my concerns about my gear are minimal. Just curious .

You were asking effects chains, so I thought I'd chime in since I've got a sort of an interesting setup...

In -> TU-2 Tuner -> Earthquaker Devices Dispatch Master Delay/Reverb -> A/B Box ->
SIDE 1 of the A/B: MXR/Custom Audio Devices Boost/Line Driver -> normal channel on a handwired Vox AC30. 
SIDE 2 of the A/B: Mojo Hand Rook Royale run EP boost side -> Rook side -> Way Huge Green Rhino -> Top Boost channel on the AC30 set pretty clean.

Right now I'm using a Big Shot ABY as my A/B, but I've got a custom Loop Master switch on order (they take months to get).

So... Side 1: I run the volume on the amp real low and the boost up pretty high (~+15db), and that sort of compresses it just a little and adds a tiny bit of dirt - that's my 'clean' channel.
Side 2: I run the Rook side of the Rook Royale always on as my basic dirt channel.  The pedal has a routing switch so that you can run one or the other side of it 'first' and then into the other side.  I have the EP boost side in 'front', so if I step on that, I get a more saturated fuzz like thing that is at basically the same volume as my regular dirt volume, since the volume control on the rook side is controlling overall volume of the pedal.  This is really useful for backing leads/harmony leads when I don't want to jump out on top of the mix.

Then I set the volume on the Green Rhino higher, and when I step on that, I get a really nice volume jump for leads I want to sit up on top of the mix.  I also, on one song, will turn off the Rook side and step on the Green Rhino for a clean loud lead tone, and then I switch from my clean channel to that pre-setup 'dirt' channel that is just a second louder clean channel for a twangy, loud lead on an unabashedly old school country song.

Because the Dispatch Master is in front of everything, I can add verb/delay to whichever channel I want, so I'll use it on the clean for a nice country slapbacky sort of thing, or on the dirt for what I think of as a Dan Auerbach sort of lead tone. 

I have things laid out not in the order they are used, just so I can step on them where I want to step on them.

I'm really looking forward to getting the loop master because with the Big Shot I can sometimes accidentally hit the 'both' side, which is never really good. The Loop Master will just be strict A/B with different colored LEDs for whichever channel I'm on.



Nice setup! We just moved our practice spot to my buddies barn during the summer. Awesome thus far . We are playing a art studio opening in a few weeks. Oh, music , I love you. nod

Wattage for guitar amps always crack me up. My one guitarist has a 50watt Mesa boogie head and cab. Crazy nice and loud. 50 watts! Ha! Just funny how much more watts are needed to push all that air for bass.

Tubes distort but get louder as you crank it up. Transistors fail not much past the point of clipping. Say you have a 50 tube amp and a fifty watt transistor amp. At full volume, the tube amp is putting out roughly 100 watts of distorted power. A fifty watt transistor amp will start to distort at fifty and the power transistor will burn out at 60 watts.
It also takes more watts to drive the groove than it does for something in the vocal range.

I understand, just think it's silly when you hear someone talk about how "big" a 100 w guitar amp is! Tongue

I'm glad I didn't listen to all naysayers on this one. Starts off weak but then gets better every time  sit down w it. Not perfect, but a great set up for a franchise. If there wasn't so much hype about this game, which Ubisoft is clearly to blame for, I think this would have gotten more 8.5-9.5 range scores.

Point taken, but I wasn't planning on playing either one again, and getting a game I do want to play for $0.54 was pretty convenient.


Sent from my mobile device

I see both sides of this. They are a shitty company with their practices...but it's so convenient when they actually give you a decent trade in value. Especially when they are running " deals". I've been trying to go to best buy instead, even though they are just as bad , but they seem to give better trade in values.

Back on topic , this game is really growing on me .

You know Fender Musical Instrument Corp had a huge debt come due this year, right? As a result, they sold off Guild Guitars, which was the most valuable asset they had. Unfortunately, they closed the factory in Connecticut. I'm hoping the new owners will pick up as many of the workers there as possible. thumbsup Anyway, they had a clearance run on Guild guitars, so I bought, <cringe>

An F-50 Standard (maple jumbo)



The mackdaddy of ALL 12 string guitars, an F-512 (Indian rosewood)



A couple of special run guitars.

A T-400, which is a reproduction of Duane Eddy's original signature model, which the Guild factory repaired after he lost all his other guitars in the Nashville flood a couple years back.



And an M-75 Aristocrat/Bluesbird. It's a hollowbody, weighs about 3 pounds.



Damn good thing I'm divorced, otherwise I would be! Paid much, much less than MSRP.




Should I say sweet Jesus again!?! Nice! Had a chance to play w my new rig. I'm super happy. Now band practice comes in a day or two and I'm dying to funk out some envelope filter!

YK: "Yeah, I really don't care. All my real life friends are going Xbox for this one, so I want to stay on the same platform."
GS: "Well, next time you should really make up your mind before you pick up the game. Our system is automated so I can't give you the bonuses now."
YK: "I don't care about the bonuses!"
GS: "I see you have Destiny pre-ordered for Xbox One. <sarcastically> Are you sure you don't want to change your mind?"
YK: "FUCK YOU SMARTASS. JUST GIVE ME MY GODDAMN GAME."

I've come pretty close. My wife doesn't come in the store w me anymore for many reasons. I believe the chance of the above happening is a big reason.

That is rather silly. As far as this game goes , I haven't played it yet, and I'll certainly read a few reviews, but people are being really hard on it thus far . I've peeked at twitch and watched the game spot preview and it's looking pretty damn fun to me.

My buddy in Colorado, who is always negative. Fun guy to play games with and chill IF he actually does. It's usually "I'll play, I only like bf4 domination though", and I'll go along with even when at launch bf4 64 player games were broken on ps4 and he insisted on continuing crash after crash. Now it works, he doesn't like it. Rant over, back on track ...It seems as he is getting paid to tell me how bad watchdogs sucks. Same for some "user" posts I've seen. Like I said I've not played it yet , but ... Maybe I'm wrong but usually in these situations I think wtf do people expect from a video game anymore?
