List of Friend ID codes for Sumikko Gurashi: Our Puzzling Ways

This may come as news to some of you, but I have a soft spot for cute Japanese cartoon characters. Combine that hook with the appeal of an advanced colour-matching puzzle game, and you have Sumikko Gurashi: Our Puzzling Ways. The game is available for Android and Apple mobile devices, and despite a few fuzzy translations from Japanese, it’s utterly adorable and dangerously addictive.

Some user reviews of the game on the Google Play store have commented that the game’s difficulty ramping is too steep. While I agree in so much that the game does get tough, this causes the player to carefully consider which character to play as, and to experiment often, enriching the experience. Each has its own special skill, and its potency can be upgraded with various accessories that add “happiness” and increase your scoring potential. Coins won within the game can be fed into a lucky dip machine, which randomly spits out upgrades for your existing characters, and unlocks new ones.

Players are limited by how many times they can play the game in quick succession by the number of rice balls they are allocated. These replenish with the passing of time, but there is another way to receive more rice balls, and therefore play the game more frequently. To do this, you can either invite friends to join the game within the app, via Facebook or email, or you can add friend codes for existing players manually.

A number of the game’s reviewers on the Google Play store have listed their player IDs and encouraged other players to connect with them. As of 25 July 2017, I have scraped the complete set of these,  and they are now listed in the table below. If you’d like your Friend ID to be added to this list, please leave a Facebook comment below, or send me an email.

As you increase the number of friends you are connected with in Sumikko Gurashi – Our Puzzling Ways, not only are you able to progress through the game more quickly, but you can also see where other players are up to on the map, and recognize them by their avatars and handles. Your friends’ high scores for each level are also displayed at the foot of the screen when you select a level to play. There are also several ‘holes’ in the map, which can be filled and passed by using flowers. A flower is awarded to you each time you interact with a friend, by either sending or receiving rice balls. Using flowers to pass holes will save you precious coins, which you can use to buy items to help with various levels, or feed into the lucky dip machine for character upgrades.

So while Sumikko Gurashi is a satisfying single player game, its enjoyment can be boosted substantially by connecting with others. Special thanks are due to all the players who have listed their friend IDs on the Play store.

If you haven’t already, I encourage you to check out Sumikko Gurashi – Our Puzzling Ways… it could quite possibly be the cutest colour- matching game you’ll ever play.

Scott Ludlam’s parliamentary resignation and the question of disqualification for dual citizenship

Senator Scott Ludlam announced his resignation from the Australian Parliament yesterday following revelations that he was, and had always been, ineligible for election. According to Section 44 of the Consitution of Australia, holding dual citizenship of Australia and another country (in Ludlam’s case, New Zealand) disqualified him. Section 44(i) specifically reads:

“Any person who –

(i.) Is under any acknowledgement of allegiance, obedience, or adherence to a foreign power, or is a subject or a citizen or entitled to the rights or privileges of a subject or citizen of a foreign power

… shall be incapable of being chosen or of sitting as a senator or a member of the House of Representatives.”

The revelation of Ludlam’s ineligibility for office was the result of independent investigations made by barrister, John Cameron. Cameron, a dual citizen of Australia and New Zealand himself, told The Australian that he had also sought to determine whether Derryn Hinch was eligible for his Senate seat. He claimed that the results of his inquiry had surprised him, with Hinch having renounced his former New Zealand citizenship prior to his election, and Ludlam having neglected to do so. Cameron also claimed that his actions, which included notifying Ludlam’s office and the parliamentary secretary, were not politically motivated.

In response to Ludlam’s resignation, Derryn Hinch raised an issue he had raised publicly back in 2015.

Former Prime Minister Tony Abbot responded promptly by posting a scan of a letter from the UK Home Office, which confirmed that he had renounced his British citizenship appropriately in 1993, prior to his election to the Australian Parliament. Hinch accepted the evidence, but referred to the delay in its provision as “silly” in a subsequent tweet today.

This turn of events made me wonder whether Ludlam was the only current Australian parliamentarian to have made such a Consitutional indiscretion. With this nagging thought, I combed through the biographies of current Australian parliamentarians, and compiled the following list of elected members of the House of Representatives and Senate who were born outside of Australia.

The list in itself is unremarkable. The Australian Parliament holds 150 members of the House of Representatives and 76 Senators (making 226 individuals in total). Of those, 25 were born outside of Australia. As one might expect, the United Kingdom is the most common place of birth for parliamentarians outside of Australia. 13 other countries feature in the list, with birthplaces including a combination of European, Middle Eastern, South-East Asian and African countries.

Personally, I think Ludlam, and the party he has represented, the Australian Greens, were foolish to overlook this important eligibility criteria, which is spelled out so unambiguously in the Constitution of Australia. End result? Regardless of whether you agree with his views, Australia has lost a hard-working Senator, who may yet have to pick up bills for salary and expenses claimed from the public purse since his election in 2008. He is able to appeal for a pardon, and could even run again at the next election, provided he renounces his New Zealand citizenship.

Cameron told The Australian that the statutory declarations federal MPs are required to sign do not require them to provide any evidence that they have renounced any other foreign citizenship. It strikes me that this episode was entirely preventable. It appears that a revision of the process of nomination for candidacy, namely adding a requirement to provide evidence of current citizenship, would be a simple and immediate way to prevent future embarrassment.

Meanwhile, the persons listed below might consider it a worthwhile demonstration of good faith to disclose their historic citizenship status and in so doing, reassure Australians that Ludlam has not been singled out unfairly.
