    Mooseman - I was trying to figure out why you took the Green 5 over a higher-value one. I figured it out. I see you're catching on. A few less points this round, but you get to keep your pass. :D

    If by something, you mean help Spiderman out a ton, then yes, it does do something, and you get money instead of your Bull.

    I give Ransac a cookie :)
  10. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    EB, it's your go....
  11. EricBess Active Member

    Alas poor Ransac, we knew him well... What everyone is referring to is that they expected you to take the red and green bull. Regardless of what you take, you are going to lose your china since they all bust red (bad break - no pun intended). By leaving the red and green bull, Spiderman has a bull he can take freely. Had you taken the red and green, all the remaining bulls break blue, so Spiderman would have had to use his pass or go pointless this round.

    Mooseman - You really took a smaller china without having thought it out? I don't think so. The blue china was worth more, but the green china is completely safe.

    My pick is easy. I'm taking the blue 7.

    EricBess (28): Blue 7; Money; Pass
    Spiderman (20): Blue 8; Pass
    Mooseman (20): Green 5; Pass
    Melkor (0): Red 6; Blue 8; Pass
    Ransac (20): Money

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

    BTW - Ransac didn't update his china, but he did update the bulls. There were two blue and red bulls available. I put back the one Melkor removed.

    Well, you know I'm taking the red and green bull :)

  17. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I did it. All that happens is that you get another Money since you don't have any China.
  18. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    Hold on.... doesn't that bull destroy all of your guy's china?

    Ransac, cpa trash man
  19. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Nope, just yours. It has to say all to destroy anyone else's.
