How do I total up points between multiple counters?

Aug 30, 2023

I set up a game where the user will select 20 poker chips. Each poker chip color has a different point value, but the user doesn't know how many points each color chip has. In the next slide, I show how much each chip is worth (reference variables CounterBlack, CounterRed, CounterGreen, CounterBlue). I have a counter that shows how many of each color were selected, and I am referencing the counters for each color below the colored chip so we know how many of each color chip was selected.


So I can see how many "points" were received for each color chip, however, I'd like to add up the values from CounterBlack, CounterRed, CounterGreen, CounterBlue, how do I do that? I see there's a trigger you can add to add one counter to another, but not more than that.

OMG thank you for responding so fast. This is brilliant, that makes so much sense I don't know why I didn't think of it lol. Thank you so much for your help, that worked like a charm!

This activity will be used at my company to talk about the importance of prioritizing work tasks if you want to check it out. :)

Hi Dara!

Great call on opening a support case! I see that you've connected with my colleague Carlo. You're in great hands working with him! It looks like Carlo replied to your e-mail with some feedback and steps to take.

We can continue this conversation over in your support case to keep all information in one spot!

I'm in the process of finding out what a URN is, and I keep arriving at discussions where the link, offered above, is presented as a source. There's nothing on that page about a URN. Do I really need to open a support case for a definition of this? Apologies for the frustration, but the offered non-solution being repeated is frustrating.
