Noxxa: This is another run of a board game where the gameplay is not meaningfully changed from regular play, and depends again on bad decisions by the AI to be defeated as fast as possible. Additionally, the animations can be disabled, which would speed up the overall game by quite a bit, which means the run is suboptimal in time too. As a potential speed-entertainment tradeoff, the animations do not do enough to keep the run afloat. Rejecting.

... wow, that was... really something. That's quite different from Cool Spot, which would actually make a pretty awesome run. The animations for piece placement are silly enough to leave in, even if it costs time, but I don't know if I'd really call them entertaining. (However, I'd be curious if the AI manipulation changes without those animations.)
Good job running another puzzle game with some manipulation, but I can't really recommend this for Moons.
Used to be a frequent submissions commenter. My new computer has had some issues running emulators, so I've been here more sporadically.
Still haven't gotten around to actually TASing yet... I was going to improve Kid Dracula for GB. It seems I was beaten to it, though, with a recent awesome run by Hetfield90 and StarvinStruthers. (http://tasvideos.org/2928M.html.)
Thanks to goofydylan8 for running Gargoyle's Quest 2 because I mentioned the game! (http://tasvideos.org/2001M.html)
Thanks to feos and MESHUGGAH for taking up runs of Duck Tales 2 because of my old signature!
Thanks also to Samsara for finishing a Treasure Master run. From the submission comments:

When I saw the title, I expected a video game adaptation of this. This was probably more interesting anyway.
With the strategy and funny animations, I think this is good enough for Moons. (They would have to be turned off for it to be Vaulted anyway.) Voting Yes.
