why does the computer get to jump his way all across the board when there's only one marble for him to jump over?? isn't that a mistake?

Hmm... maybe the rules wasn't written clearly enough. In the following example, A, B, C are marbles and X are empty spaces:

AXBXXXXCXXX

A can make two consecutive jumps in one single move:

AXBXXXXCXXX
XXBXAXXCXXX
XXBXXXXCXXA

You can also make these kind of moves.

well, i think i sort of understand what you're saying, but using your example (A,B,C are marbles and X are spaces) a part of the board was set us like this:
ABXXXXXXXCX

, and the computer jumped marble A over marble B, and moved all the way to the X in front of C. that means the computer skipped 6 empty spaces.
i know you can jump more than one marble on your turn, but i thought the marble had to be in the space directly in front of you each time. you said i can do the same jumps as the computer, but when i tried the computer wouldn't let me.

yeah thats right the computer can do crazy moves. i think theres a bug or something because i cant do the same moves as the computer can.

Oh really? Then that's really a bug. We'll check.

Sorry, but we're really unable to reproduce the error. Maybe the computer moved too fast that you cannot see its moves clear. We've added a feature to show the moves made by the computer clearly. Please let us know if the computer really make strange moves.

well i played the game again to see if it worked now and for the first couple of turns the computer did normal moves but there was a part of the board setup like this:
AXBXX,
and he moved A to the last X and the marks you just added showed him as only moving two spaces (as in a normal jump) when he really moved four.
i studied it very carefully to make sure i am right about it and i am but maybe it's only my computer that gets it wrong?

btw i like the idea of having marks to show where the computer's moved.... :-)

If you really encountered this then the game must be wrong. It shouldn't be your computer that has caused this problem.

We'll check again
