    Ransac - Still want to take the bull, or would you like to take the China instead? Remember, we are scoring as soon as that last china is gone.

    That is, as long as no one minds letting him back up. After all, I'm the one that stands to gain the most if we make him stick with his original play.

    Just to clarify, most bulls only destroy the china of the person who takes the bull. The exceptions are the bulls that destroy "All" of something, like "All Red" or "All Even"

    Doesn't matter to me... whatever the group says...

    That's fine.....

    Sure, if you guys insist, I shall take the green 5 instead. :p

    All right, updated Ransac turn above to show it.

    Okay, let's see where we stand:

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

    That was a scoring round, so points are as follows:

    I score 7 for all 4 categories, so 28 this round, bringing me to 56
    Spiderman likewise 8 time 4 is 32, plus 20 = 52
    Mooseman and Ransac 5 times 4 is 20, plus 20 = 40
    Melkor scores a bit different. 6+8 for both high in each color, low in each color, and total, with 8 being the single color, so 14+14+8+14 = 50. That's back in the game...

    EricBess (56): Blue 7; Money; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Blue 8; Money; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 5; Money; Pass
    Melkor (50): Red 6; Blue 8
    Ransac (40): Green 5


    China: Green 3, Red 8, blue 5, green 8, green 3
    Bulls: Blue and Red and Green, 1 any

    Early and tough to say what's going to happen. I'll deversify with the red 8.

    EricBess (56): Blue 7; Red 8; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Blue 8; Money; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 5; Money; Pass
    Melkor (50): Red 6; Blue 8
    Ransac (40): Green 5


    China: Green 3, blue 5, green 8, green 3 (non-scoring round)
    Bulls: Blue and Red and Green, 1 any
  8. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Ditto, I'll go with the Green 8

    EricBess (56): Blue 7; Red 8; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Blue 8; Green 8; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 5; Money; Pass
    Melkor (50): Red 6; Blue 8
    Ransac (40): Green 5


    China: Green 3, blue 5, green 3 (non-scoring round)
    Bulls: Blue and Red and Green, 1 any
  9. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Blue 5....

    EricBess (56): Blue 7; Red 8; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Blue 8; Green 8; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 5; Blue 5; Pass
    Melkor (50): Red 6; Blue 8
    Ransac (40): Green 5


    China: Green 3, green 3 (non-scoring round)
    Bulls: Blue and Red and Green, 1 any

    No one wanted to stick Melkor with losing both of his china :D?

  12. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Why didn't you?
  13. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I was thinking that also, but figured someone else could ask it :)
  14. Melkor Active Member

    Back in the game, no Pass so I'm behind but we'll see how the Bulls come out. I'll take the 1 any Bull and lose my Red 6.

    EricBess (56): Blue 7; Red 8; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Blue 8; Green 8; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 5; Blue 5; Pass
    Melkor (50): Blue 8; Money
    Ransac (40): Green 5


    China: Green 3, green 3 (non-scoring round)
    Bulls: Blue and Red and Green
  15. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Well, we know Ransac's play... :D
  16. EricBess Active Member

    I don't have a new set of bulls dealt out yet. If Ransac hasn't done his move by the time I get home, I'll update it then.

    And yeah, I didn't stick Melkor for the same reason Spidey didn't. Too many high-point cards available. They will probably all be axed by the time we score anyway, but... :D It's so hard to figure out how much positioning is or isn't important on non-scoring rounds.
  17. EricBess Active Member

    Allright, not much money going around right now. Ransac must take the final bull, leaving him without china. After his play, I deal out another round of bulls and end up with this:

    EricBess (56): Blue 7; Red 8; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Blue 8; Green 8; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 5; Blue 5; Pass
    Melkor (50): Blue 8; Money
    Ransac (40): Money


    China: Green 3, green 3 (non-scoring round)
    Bulls: All Even, 2 Red, Red and Green, All Blue, Blue and Green and Red

    Well, I can't say that I like any of that. I guess I'll take the 2 red as it seems to be the least problematic for me long term.

    EricBess (56): Blue 7; Money; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Blue 8; Green 8; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 5; Blue 5; Pass
    Melkor (50): Blue 8; Money
    Ransac (40): Money


    China: Green 3, green 3 (non-scoring round)
    Bulls: All Even, Red and Green, All Blue, Blue and Green and Red
  18. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Man, this sucks. I can see I'm gonna lose all of my China at this point so I'll just take the All Blue bull just to screw with everyone else :)

    EricBess (56): Money; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Green 8; Money; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 5; Pass
    Melkor (50): Money
    Ransac (40): Money

    China: Green 3, green 3 (non-scoring round)
    Bulls: All Even, Red and Green, Blue and Green and Red
  19. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    I'll take the ALL EVEN to clean everyone else out and get money

    EricBess (56): Money; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Money; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 5; Money; Pass
    Melkor (50): Money
    Ransac (40): Money

    China: Green 3, green 3 (non-scoring round)
    Bulls: Red and Green, Blue and Green and Red
  20. Melkor Active Member

    I'll take the Red and Green to be cautious

    EricBess (56): Money; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Money; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 5; Money; Pass
    Melkor (50): Money, Money
