(#5265583) Re: Game number 12854040

With all due respect, that makes no sense.

In the rules, the two situations that score points - dribbling the ball into the goal point of the opponent and trapping the opponent - are linked here, note the word "or". If you are correct in reading the rules to say that Player B should be awarded the point when Player A has moved the ball such that Player B is trapped and cannot make a legal move then it would also be correct to say that Player B should receive the 2 points when Player A has dribbled the ball into the goal point of Player B which is obviously completely wrong. Therefore, reading the rules to say Player B should receive the point for getting trapped is wrong.

And from a logical standpoint, why would the person that allowed themselves to get trapped deserve the point? Shouldn't the point go to the person that successfully worked at setting up the trap?

I have the most experience with Dice Paper Hockey as it's my favorite of the three; however, trying to trap the opponent is one of the basic strategies across all three Dice Paper games - Dice Paper Hockey, Dice Paper Basketball, and Dice Paper Football. And the rules for all three read the same:

From Hockey - "If a player moves a puck to the opponent's goal point, or to a point from which the other player can not make any further moves, the player gets a point, the puck is moved back to the center, and all lines are removed from the board."

From Basketball - "If a player dribbles a ball to the opponent's goal point, or to a point from which the other player can not make any further moves, the ball is moved back to the center, and all lines are removed from the board. The moving player gets 2 points for the goal, 1 point for the blocking situation."

From Football - "If a player kicks a ball to the opponent's goal point, or to a point from which the other player can not make any further moves, the player gets a point, the ball is moved back to the center, and all lines are removed from the board."

It's been a long time since I've played Dice Paper Basketball; however, if you are correct to say Player B should receive the point when trapped by Player A, instead of Player A, I can say that almost every game of Dice Paper Hockey on this site has been erroneously scored because when Player B is trapped, Player A gets the point. (Except for that one dot on the Hockey board where the coding is obviously borked and no points are awarded.)

I'm a newer member of this site, only for the last 6 years, I often feel like a pup compared to people that have been with the site since it's founding or shortly after. I wasn't around when these games were introduced and I don't know the people who run the site, so, I'm not trying to rude or disrespectful. However, has the person or persons that are in charge of making sure these games play correctly ever played Dice Paper Basketball or Dice Paper Hockey? The rules say the same thing across the three Dice Paper games so it cannot be correct for the rules to mean one thing in one version and the complete opposite in the other two versions.
