Thanks tedd. I like the new spin with three piles instead of one. I had a
similar idea but it would increase (instead of decreasing)  the number of
items and the person forced to hit some number of items exactly would lose.
Players would be able to vary the number of total items and the number of
items they can add per turn. The mathematical key numbers are simple to
calculate, so all the effort can be put into the interface.

The method for collecting money for your efforts is innovative (and
somewhat devious) and I really hope it pays off for you. Getting paid is
always the last big hurdle. Don't take this the wrong way but most of the
fun (for me and maybe others) is NOT knowing the secret. The challenge of
playing it or working out the solution would be more fun for me. If I know
the secret there is no challenge (IMHO). Anyway just a thought before it is
released as "secretware".  My small success collecting $$ has been with
apps that are usage-bombed and require a registration code. I'm not totally
happy with this either,  but it seems to be reasonably effective and
doesn't annoy either the trial or registered user.

Best Regards,
