Oh man. Just finished my first one as a leader. It's kind of hilarious to see what your partner does when you accidentally give bad instructions.

People have different strategies, which makes it hard. For example, the follower will try to anticipate where to go and turn/move before selecting "finished command." But then if I have another command queued up, it's not the correct directions. I always play with a don't anticipate mentality, but I get that not everybody wants to do that and risk wasting the rest of their moves that turn.
The first time a follower hits finish it moves to the next command, if they hit it again it ends the turn. I see a lot of premature turn ending.

I'm seeing people quit after getting leader now. :/
In our email this morning we said we'd dequalify people who were consistently leaving after being assigned one role but not the other -- it really hurts your partner when you constantly quit the game right after matching! So, I guess we will have to start dequalifying people for this.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Well it was only two, so It might not qualify as a pattern yet.

My last one we both got trapped in a ring of trees and rocks at the beginning. Left a comment when I submitted.

That sucks =/ If I qualify I just feel bad for the first couple of times I am leader for someone, though will do my best. I feel a few times doing it will give a better idea of what to say, vs that first time which will be panic at the timer and over thinking what to write.

Oh yeah I've only done leader a couple times and I'm not super great at it, usually only get to 10.

Is there a way to play the Cereal Bar game outside of a hit so I can get good at it for when/if I get the qual? Like is it a real game outside of the hit or is the learning process part of what they want from the hit?
You should be able to pick it up pretty quickly. As a follower you just follow the leader's commands (move where they tell you to to complete sets). As a leader, you still have to move around to complete sets but you also have to tell your follower where to go. You can see where your follower is on the map and as well as their perspectives so your instructions will basically be something along the lines of "turn right and walk straight down the road to the tile with 2 red circles". Once the follower has completed that step, you give them another command. Rinse and repeat until you run out of turns.

Yeah I'm sure it will be fine. :)

Might be gone but just in case "Mood survey: answer questions about how you have been feeling lately"
I think it was $3. I had to throw mine back because there is a verbal part and I have to be quiet.
