My two Euro-cents
So here is Dan... and how that guy used to say: Dan means fun. Seriously, the one and only reason - apart from the challenge - is that it's just fun to. But do not listen to the ones saying 'Dan is a loser' or 'I cannot understand why Dan is in the game': Puzzle Fighter is an hilarious game, and Dan and his counter gem pattern are the funniest thing in the game! Who wouldn't laugh at the face of his opponent angrily shouting 'When are you going to gimme a f... red crash gem, damned machine?!?'? (Hey man, it's just a matter of luck... it's just a game!).
Anyway, the strategy to use playing Dan is really simple: in the beginning you can even do some small attacks here and there. Then, you have to set up a really huge single attack, building up power gems and possibly use two, three or more chains. Once you have spent that attack, assume you have 5 more pieces to drop to finish your opponent, 7 if you're lucky, 10 or more if a miracle happens. In 5 drops all the counter gems sent to your opponent during your first (and only) huge attack will turn themselves into red gems providing him with one or more quite huge red power gems, so you have to be careful, quick and deadly in your attacks. Certainly luck has an important role in matches involving Dan, beacuse winning or losing depends on how many crrash gems appears after your huge attack, or when the first red crash gem appears for your opponent and so on... but you cannot win without a bit of luck...
However, when you decide to play Dan just take it easy and state in mind you're playing for fun. Remember: Dan means fun... did I already mention it?
