Why does Puzzle Swap insist on giving me the same pieces?

I Get a Piece and it's the same one. I don't walk around on sore feet all day at work so they can give me the same crap every day.

It's a random chance, makes things more interesting. Plus there is an achievement in getting the same piece 3 times in a row.

Edit: If you want a better answer, look into the psychological affects of gambling.

What really annoys me is that new pictures coming out makes it less likely that you'll get ones that you actually need (particularly since when a picture first comes out, you can't complete it since you need to get all the pink pieces first). Of course, completing a previous picture raises the probability of getting a good one, since you don't get duplicates from finished pictures.

It's so you can't just use about 50 coins or so to complete a puzzle by yourself (unless you get super lucky). They want you to get pieces from other people.

But it seems no one has pink pieces anymore.

Not sure if you know or not but you don't get pieces for puzzles that you have all the blue pieces for.

And I have to say, I kinda hate that I have the achievement for getting 3 of the same in a row... Hell, I'm pretty sure I got up to 5 in a row of the same piece. Wish there were an option to spend 10 coins to guarantee a new non-pink piece... Then again it only takes me around 200 coins to collect all the blue pieces the day they become available and I always have 300 by the time a new puzzle comes out and I would end up spending far less. :p

It may be the pieces he's getting from random people on the street from streetpass, although, when that happens to me, I just get the message "No new pieces".
