J. Wellington Weasly Do we get letters about the Fruit Game? You betcha! Here's your chance to speak your mind. Any submission is fair game for insertion on this page at a later date--names abbreviated to protect the innocent. Also, all of those wonderful typos and odd spellings are left perfectly intact!

NOTE: These are the letters for the All New Fruit Game which went online October 24th, 1999. Before that, we had the original Fruit Game. We saved the letters we received from that game; so if you really want to see some angry hombres, see the original letters page!


I really want to win. I can not win. HELP ME. If you do not help people like me than what is the use of playing because you are judged on the ammount of page hits you get. I do not know if I will rver come back to your page.

To Fruitmaster,
Your game is so DUMB I win every game. How's about you do something like 1. put on some other games like 1.crossword's 2. Skateboarding 3. Board games such as chess and checkers.5.card games such as old maid and go fish. Just read this letter and do it Like Tiger Woods says ''just do it''
      Yours Sincerely Brennan
P.S. Have a break, Have some fun. Do something with your life.
Like say fun fun fun listen to this letter and do it.
Dear Fruitmaster,
Sorry if someone has already pointed this out, but... It's not the adding of the banaanannas that allow you to beat the computer, it's the option to go second, letting the computer go first. If you take the first move, the computer will always win. But if you let the computer go first you have a chance. Still very hard though!
    - Daniel (I know how to start spelling banananas, but I don't know how to stop. ;-)
Hello.
I'm Maziah from Singapore and I wanted to say that the Fruit Game was truly challenging. I like it. Please put more of those kind of†games. I love†your website. Good day!
    Lots of love from Maziah, 11, Singapore
your fruit game is so stupid i am going to tell all my friends about it ,and they will think it is stupid too.Camille.
Dear, ummmm, people:
I read some of the other letters but I disagree totally. I think it was a great game!! Ya know I was always told to be a graceful loser and I am. But the other people should lern that It's a joke and shouldn't sue you. I don't think you were trying to make people cry. You were trying to make people say " ... that's funny, I'm going to try it on my friends". I guess some people cant take a joke.
Your friend -Danny
dear stupid game,
   this is my 400 time trying to win this dumb game i don't even know why i played this stinky game.
   P.S. your game cheats
Dear Fruitmaster,
I think that everyone who was writing the bad letters to you are just bad losers. I've played the game a lot and I still haven't won. But I'm still trying. I can do it someday. Nothing's Impossible.
  -- Elvis
Is it POSSIBLE to win this game even now? I seriously would like to know.
Hello!
I won the fruit game once after being driven insane and staying up all night several times. I begged my computer teacher to tell me how to beat it but he said he had forgotten. Then, one night, I beat it!! YAY!! But then _I_ forgot how to beat it. Can you please tell me how? Just e-mail me.
Thanks!!

Hello I think that game is stupid. I am sure I was ment to win a game but Nnnnnnnnnnno the computer had to win. In your letter that you said sorry in I can tell you don,t mean it you just want to take up peoples time with that REALLY BAD game. And I might just tell someone big and important who would love to hear about this bad mean game of yours. I am going to come and have another look to see if that game is still there. If it is you better look out because I will tell EVERYONE about it and you will have no one come and play that stupid game. I can not tell you my name.
Dear fruit master,
    I lost your game after I tried about 200 times!!!! This game is really hard, and I thought you improved it. My child is highly upset and we will never go on the internet again!!!!!
signed,
a very angry parent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:(:(:(:(:(:(:(
i won by doing what the computer did.
I played many times and took notes on it.
You people are sick!!!!This game is stupid.I wrote you a e-mail before I read the explanation.And you were right,YOU ARE SICK!!!!!And please don't think of another version because it's just going to be a waste of your time!!!!You are so rude to make people think they are going to win.Also you didn't have a very good explanation.I wouldn't blame people sending you hatemail!!!!!!!also a suggestion would think of a game where peope can win without playing 1,000 times!!!!!!!!

fruitmaster,
you realy are pants at this game arent you, you havent won one game against me yet and as for your old game, well you could of made it a bit harder it must be embarrassing losing against me as much as you do? i pity you, lots of love from
    fruitmaster@suckseggs.com
Hey Fruitmaster,
    I am glad you made this game. I win a lot on the new one, now my goal is to beat the old one. I think people should concentrate more and if they get mad they shouldn't take it out on you. I think they should ask for some help or just concetrate better. Thanks for the great and challanging game!!
    Love, fmc
P.S. Please have other colored fruits like purple or red or green (grapes, cherries, apples...) Thanks again!!
So this is what you did with your Computer Engineering degree? I'm sure your parents are so proud that they put a second mortgage on their home to send you through college so that you could confuse people with a mind-numbing, time consuming game. I thought that as an English major I was pursuing the most useless field of study imaginable, but the masterminds behind the Fruit Game has proven me wrong. Thank you for validating my college experience.
Hello I think that game is stupid. I am sure I was ment to win a game but Nnnnnnnnnnno the computer had to win. In your letter that you said sorry in I can tell you don,t mean it you just want to take up peoples time with that REALLY BAD game. And I might just tell someone big and important who would love to hear about this bad mean game of yours. I am going to come and have another look to see if that game is still there. If it†is you better look out because I will tell EVERYONE about it and you will have no one come and play that stupid game.
I can not tell you my name.
Fruitmaster,
    Wow! You are REALLY good. I have not yet beaten this game. A kid in my math class won, I don't know how though. My math teacher who has a P.H.D. in math is embarressed, but she can't play for beans. She always clicks the " back" button. Thanx for making this game!
Your challenger,
MAB
    Dear idiots who created the frite game .You people are such idiots making kids think that they can win the stupid fruit game if they tri harder . You will be reported .
    an angre mom
hey you stupid retarts that created the fruit game you should be throw off the internet .you created such a stupid game ,that you have to play a miilion time before you can mabbie win .
an angre woman
Dearest fruitmaster,
I must say that I find your game very hard to master. I have however, unlike most, read your rules. You are still better than I am! As for all the nasty letters you get, I find them very childlike and do consider most of them to be actually written by children. After all, they have to be considering the spelling ... ex. angry = angre lol anyway, I just wanted to say i give you a tremendous thumbs up on this game. I will get it one day. Thanks so much for the entertainment.
    Cordially,
    A still beaten player-
    Connie
Dear Fruit,
    Hi. My name is Krista and I have played your game in Computer class today in school. Well, I tried and I tried! BUT, I finally got it! I finally WON! And since I'm a 6th grader, none of the 7th graders couldn't get it! And my computer teacher Ms. Creighton said, "If you win this game, then you will get a reward! That reward is that the whole class will get to do whatever they want on the computer tomorrow." And I was the one who won! So I thank you very much! BUT, I forgot how I won! (Silly isn't it?) And I was wondering if you†could tell me how to win again. My E-mail Address is [withheld]. I really thank you! Bye!
    Take care,
    Krista :0)
Hi, my name is Felisha and I have just played your fruit game. I lost, and at the end the computer said,"You Lose!" I think that is completelt not right. That puts the people who play a wrong attitude towards the game. It also puts down the player. I hope that you change that comment.
Sincerely,
Felisha
Suggestion: I think you should make a new remark when the computer wins. All it says is something like " I peel one victorious orange." To kids it sounds like the computer is rubbing it in when it wins.
Thanks for listening to my suggestion.
Dear Fruitmaster,
It is my firm belief that people are too stuck up about the fruit game. And everyone that PLAYS the fruit game is illiterate and/or braindead. Oooo, they're going to sue you because you lost a game that you clearly couldn't win! Oooo, they're not going to let their friends see your site! I'm sure the loss of 2†viewers will impact the site. Oh no, the computer taunts you! Maybe our self esteem will drop! Hmmm, if everyone realized it was just a game...
CrocodileJim
Dear master of the fruit, your game isn't bad but it isn't good either.also, i also emailed you and your team of fruit a letter when your game was a disaster,but it didn't show up on the letter page. what's up with that?! suggestion: please! put colorful fruit on your game! yellow and orange make me gag sometimes.
    Sushi
P.S.it would make me happy if this letter was on the letter page because I like other people reading my thoughts.
[ Your wish is my command! -- The Fruitmaster ]
Fruitmaster,
    I hate what you did to that girl!!!!! YOU PUT HER ON YOUR LIST OF PEOPLE WHEN SHE SAID SHE DIDN'T WANT TO BE!! That is the most smartellic remarck!! "YOUR WISH IS MY COMMAND"!!! HA !! THAT WAS VERY RUDE AND IF YOU DO THAT AGAIN I WILL TELL ALL THE PEOPLE ABOUT YOUR STUPID WEBSITE!!!!!!
your game is dumb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and i hate those people who created the" never-ever wanted" fruit game! I'm going to tell my friends and soon they'll tell other people that they know...soon the united states will know how stupid your game is! hahaha!!!! I'm soon going to take your website off the web! heeheeehaha! idiots! by natalie.p.s.never e-mail me ever again!!!!!!!!!!!!! dodo brains!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the opponent never wins! bye, dummies!
Thanks for putting the Fruit game on the web. I plan to use it next semester with my students. I hope you continue making games that will help people think. It is amazing also to read the feedback you are getting from people which reflects the problems of learning and teaching math in school.
    Thanks again,
    Dani
I did not take the last Fruit and it still says that i lost this game is messed up.
*Leah*
I agree with Leah. I did not take the last fruit. I still lost! The game is rigged. I know it is!
[ Read the homepage! It clearly states the object of the game! It says "the player to take the last fruit is the winner." -- The Fruitmaster ]
Fruitmaster.
I`ve played your game a few times, it gets me frustrated but i dont loose my temper. i think all those people who are sending you nasty emails should just shut there faces, obvisually they dont have two brain cells to rub together. I`m one to talk though i havent completed it yet, but i`m gonna keep trying !! :) the others are right though, you do need more colour in it.
love,
Dark Eyed Dusk Wolf.
This is confusing. It's kind of neat, but I can never win! There has to be a secret! It's probably one of those games that has the easiest trick to it, that it so stupid, and you feel stupid. Whatever, I'll keep tryin.
Kelly
[ Yes, there is a trick! See our new How-To Page for the secret of winning the Fruit Game. -- The Fruitmaster ]
Dear Fruitgame, Your new game stinks.I don't like this website.I wouldn't reccomend it to anybody.Goodbye.
  Sincerely,
  Anonymus
I hate your game!! You never can win, I didn't take the last piece of fruit and you said"YOU LOSE". Next time I play and don't take the last piece of fruit and you say "YOU LOSE". I'll never stop e-mailing you.
    Andrew S.

           DEMONCHILD
P.S. I HOPE U PUT THIS WHERE EVERYONE CAN SEE IT CAUSE IT HAS SOME GOOD INFORMATION IN IT!
WHAT IS YOUR SECRET??? I PLAY THIS GAME ALL THE TIME AND NOT A SINGLE TIME, I MEAN NEVER IN MY 11 YEARS HAVE I WON THIS... HARD GAME. I WILL BEAT YOU someday FRUIT MASTER!!!
HEY! SORRY!
My stupid idoioc friend told me to mess with the URL! I did not know what that would do! It is all his fault. Please erase my IP address. I am honestly sorry.
RivenGD
[ Aha! It seems that somebody has stumbled upon our hidden security feature. Your IP address has been logged, buddy. Don't try any funny business in the future.]
dear fruit man, my friend rivengd was telling the truth that his idiotic friend tricked him into that cheat.
I am his stupid friend.
I am sorry but the last one was better! IF SOME ONE CAN'T TAKE A JOKE THEY SHOULDN'T COME TO YOUR SITE. Also, I won once but it said I didn't. You see, I was faced with 2 oranges and 2 peaches. I took both of the peaches.The computer took both of the oranges. Doesn't that mean I WON???
P.S. DOn't reply to my message. My parents get mad.
[ Editor's Note: In the old Fruit Game, the object was to force the computer to take the last fruit--and people got confused. So to doubly confuse everybody, we switched the rules. Now you want to take the last fruit.]
I STILL DON'T LIKE YOUR GAME!!! maybe it's still rigged... I'm suspicious

Hi, my name is Phil.
I'm 12 years old and I like your game. It's really neat. I know you say it's possible, but I just can't figure it out!!! I've played games like this and I've figured out how the computer keeps winning, but I can't do what he's doing. If the number of fruit stayed te same, I could probably get it right. Could you please send me the answer on how to win? I'll come back and try again sometime, and if I can't get it then, i'll ask my mom!! She's a math teacher and would probably like the game a lot. Could you also put this in the letters section? I am going to keep trying until I win. I've told a few of my friends about the site. Congratulations!
your game is hard. I do like reading the letters of the angry losers im sure you do.You need colorful fruit. Like cherry's and grapes.Not all yellow and orange fruit.     melissa
I thought the old game was kind of clever...
*marcie*
Brittany munch bannana!Brittany munch a peach!Brittany munch a lemon!HI IT'S ME AGAIN!I love this fruit game beacouse it's so cool.I still can't win.Well still try'n harder. SEE YA PEOPLE LATTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
FROM,
BRITTANY
P.S.MAKE THE RULES SHORTER!
[ Here are the quick rules: On the table before you sit several piles of fruit. Players take turns removing fruit from the table. On your turn, you must pick one kind of fruit (lemon, peach, orange or banana) which is on the table and remove at least one of them. The object of the game is to remove the last fruit from the table.

Your game is a cheat!
The coumputer allways wins.
I will be sending my army today.

Thanks for having this game, it helps me relax. I really like this game. My dad taught me how to win so I use a simple numbering sign things and it helps me and I win every time now! Thanks Again, Katzrkewl
hi again. i have written to you before. i wrote a complaint about the old fruit game. now i think it is much better. however i still can't win! it is very difficult but fairly entertaing!
--Stephen
This game is driving me crazy!!!!! I can't figure it out and I don't even want to try to think about it!!!
you never got my first letter! i'll tell you what it said- i hate the stupid, idiotic game of fruit! the new one and the old one! they both stink! if i lose again i'm going to smash in the computer screen! i will win i will not lose again! or in three words-
I WILL BE BACK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LAURENE

i just beat your stinking game! and it only took me 2 tries!!
there is no possible way anyone could possably win this game, the computer will always end up with the last turn and hence the computer will always win, but i do give ya credit, its a very well done game
You are a sick person. That was soooo rude, immature, and discombobulated of you.You need to get a life
Yo! who ever invented this game needs to know its freeking inposable
   Derek, John Glenn School Pine Hill
this game is harder than any thing i have ever done.you said you improved it but you just made it worse sense you added bananas.i even asked my math teacher mrs.halley merrit and she couldn't even figure it out after like 50 tries.
very frustrated player,
Shel-Shel
Wow you sure are smart. Now I will come back every chance I get. I will recommend this game too everyone I know. I think this game is great now that you've changed this. There is a great chance that you will get lots of good letters. I absolutely love this game and even though I have always lost I know it `s because I am not skilled at this game and I know that if people practice at this game just like me they will get better and if I practice then I will get better. I don `t think people should get mad when they play because all they need is practice.
   Love,
   Josie
I can't believe it!!! You tell everybody that you changed your game and that they are now able to win. But really since you added the bananas it is still impossible to win. I don't think that your game is very fair!!! It makes me sooooooooooooooooooooooooo mad. I sat at the computer for hours and hours trying to figure out just how I could win!! I even tried to figure it out mathematically!!!! But I just couldn't win!!!
I hate fruit anyway!!
   ~Very mad player
Hey, I think all those people who sent in letters are stupid fools. Half of them probably didn't even read the rules. And you can't sue anyone for being to stupid to solve their puzzel! I myself haven't even beat the game yet, but I'm on my way to it. But I think its cool that you found some way to get all of the simple minded fools to think. Thanks for the game I think its cool. All you people who wrote in with hate mail, GET A LIFE!
     Kelly
If you really want to win, just read the technical analysis mentioned on the home page! It tells exactly how to win, and now that I've read it, I can win every single time. The computer is helpless!!! The digital sums never exceed three digits, and it only takes about 15 - 20 seconds to do them in your head and figure out a winning move.

Tell us what you think!
