    Ransac doesn't have a choice. With no pass and no money, he has to take the "2 any", depleting him of the Green 7. The good news for him is that even though Mooseman forget to pay, no one else has money, so he should be able to pick up that green 5 on the rebound. Let's see if he gets lucky and manages to get everyone else's chine eliminated in the process...

    EricBess: Green 4; Green 6; Red 7; Pass
    Spiderman: Blue 5; Pass
    Mooseman: Green 3; Red 5; Pass
    Melkor:Green 3; Red 7; Red 5; Pass
    Ransac: Money

    China: Green 5
    Bulls: 2 blue and 2 green, 2 blue and 2 red, all green, any 2, any 1

    Ug...Spiderman, why couldn't you have any green china?

    The question is - how cruel do I feel right now? I think if anyone's going to have to use the pass, I benefit more if that person plays just before me than if they play just after me. I could be wrong, but my gut tells me that's the case.

    So...I'll take the "any 1" bull and let Spidey and Mooseman keep both their china and their passes intact if they wants to... And no, I'll hold onto the "red 7" thanks.

    And before you complain too much Melkor, it looks to me like you're going to be in a good spot point-wise, just without the pass ;):p;)

    EricBess: Green 6; Red 7; Money; Pass
    Spiderman: Blue 5; Pass
    Mooseman: Green 3; Red 5; Pass
    Melkor:Green 3; Red 7; Red 5; Pass
    Ransac: Money

    China: Green 5
    Bulls: 2 blue and 2 green, 2 blue and 2 red, all green, any 2

    Well, I don't have any money, so I gotta take a bull or pass. Passing seems kinda dopey when there's an all green bull and I don't have any green, so I'll take it. :)

    EricBess: Red 7; Money; Pass
    Spiderman: Blue 5; Money; Pass
    Mooseman: Red 5; Pass
    Melkor: Red 7; Red 5; Pass
    Ransac: Money

    China: Green 5
    Bulls: 2 blue and 2 green, 2 blue and 2 red, any 2

    China: Green 5
    Bulls: 2 blue and 2 red, any 2

    Don't forget to add a Money to your stats... I'll do it this time :)
  7. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Add money? Did I miss this part? Why do I add money? For taking a bull?

    I figured you would have passed Melkor. That completes the second deal of china cards, so we now score. Since no one has more than 1 china right now, then scoring is easy because the value of that china is used for all 4 categories. As an example, use Spiderman:

    Highest card of each color. He only has blue and the highest card is a 5, so 5 points.
    Lowest card of each color. Ditto, 5 more points.
    Total from any one color. He has more in blue than any other color, so 5 more points.
    Total of all china - 5 more points.

    So, Spiderman has 20 points. Similarly, I end up with 28, Mooseman and Ransac each with 20, and Melkor with nothing.

    Just for demonstration purposes, has Melkor passed, he would have kept a 7 and a 5, both red, giving him 7 (highest) + 5 (Lowest) + 12 (red) + 12 (total) for 36 points.

    Give me a minute to line of the cards and I'll deal another row. Remember, we score after every other set of 5 china cards.

    Yeah, I think EricBess accidently put a 20 in there copying from one post to another. I corrected it.

    I call shenanigans!

    Really, Ransac has points, that can't be right.......
  20. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    I'll agree with that! I really I won the Shipwrecked! game without knowing what I was doing for the majority of it.
