    Gold Grab

    Before I post as a Problem, both Elixir Escapade an Gold grab maxed at 2,000,000,000. Just that I would have thought 999,999,999,999 would be more a likely scenario.

    Your thoughts please

    Why stop at 999,999,999,999?

    999,999,999,999,999 seems better.

    The programming language used by Android apps only allows for signed 32-bit integers, meaning the largest number the game is capable of storing is 2^31 - 1, or 2,147,483,647. I think we can all agree that 2 billion looks nicer as a cap.

    You need to get hired by a gaming company asap. I was taught that at university but obviously forgot. The fact you remember such detail shows you probably have a hobby or passion for programming. You will go places

    Nah, I just remember seeing this exact thread a few weeks back, and a calculator does math pretty quick, lol. 😉

    Exactly!

    Furthermore.. undigned integers wouldn’t have made much of a difference now, anyway. The choice to use the 2 billion cap was made long before th10,11 and 12.
