Robert F. Caine and myself (Isyldar) decided to conduct some experiments on the Ahyoheek tables to determine if we could figure a few things out, which to this day do not seem to have any kind of documentation whatsoever.
So, here are the questions that we’ve answered so far:
What happens if I lose all of my Ahyoheek points?
Should you lose all of your Ahyoheek points, you will become a Rank 0 player, and, although you will still be able to play Ahyoheek, you will not be able to bet any points at the table. This means that if you lose a game, you will essentially not lose any points, but neither will any of your opponents gain any from you.
Still, I would be careful about losing too many; it’ll be an awfully long venture to climb back up to that 100 points that you started with if you get too far down. –Isyldar
When do I become a Rank 2 player? Or, how many points do I need to get to different ranks?
In our experiments, we were able to determine that when you obtain your 201st point, you will be considered a Rank 2 player, and that at your 401st point, you will be a Rank 3 player.
Nadnerb has contributed this chart which lays out the first 10 or so ranks for Ahyoheek. (Refer to the comments in this text for the formula to determine higher ranks.)
Rank PointRange 0 0 1 1-200 2 201-400 3 401-700 4 701-1100 5 1101-1600 6 1601-2200 7 2201-2900 8 2901-3700 9 3701-4600
What do the different ranks mean?
If you are a rank 1 player, you bet 1 point per round. If you are a rank 2 player, you will bet 2 points per round, and so on. (So, it’s a better idea to compete against players of a higher rank than yourself, if you want to increase your rank quicker.)
Did you know that Ahyoheek tables can bank points?
Believe it or not, an Ahyoheek table can bank points, if a player gets up from the table after they’ve bet their point(s) and before the round has been won.
At the present time, we’re looking into some theories that we have in regards to Age resets returning points to a person, however, what we do know at the moment is that, if a table has stored points and everyone gets up from the table, someone sitting back down at the table will be attributed the stored points. (We are not sure at the moment if this is a random effect, or if there is a logic to it, but we’re looking it.)
