    Does someone else want to take over Ransac's place in this game?

    I've been checking it out and I could prolly fill in, but isn't EB still out on punctured aorta leave?
  3. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Yeah, he checks in occasionally, but not as often as he was...
  4. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    TomB why don't you take Ransac's turns until he gets back.
    Then we just have to wait on EB's recovery, which will be speedy and complete.

  6. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    OR.... I could just take the Red and Green and Blue bull.


    Ransac, cpa trash man
  7. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    He's baaaack! Finally! Looks like we gotta wait for EB anyway to give out a new set of bulls.

    Hey, why did I lose my china? (Green 5) I didn't take the bull.

    Oops, my bad. It's been so long I forgot it had to be All. Gave it back.

    Okay, let's see if we can even remember how to play this game...

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

    China: Green 3, green 3 (non-scoring round)
    Bulls: Blue and Green, All Green, Blue green and red, All Odd, blue green and red

    Wow...Given that the 3 chine left both get killed by the all green and the all odd, I think I'll snatch another bull and get some more cash. I don't want to open the door for anyone else, so I'm taking the Blue and Green bull.


    EricBess (56): Money x 2; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Money; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 5; Money; Pass
    Melkor (50): Money, Money
    Ransac (40): Money, Money

    China: Green 3, green 3 (non-scoring round)
    Bulls: All Green, Blue green and red, All Odd, blue green and red
  11. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I'll do the same and take one of the blue, green, and red bulls

    EricBess (56): Money x 2; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Money x2; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 5; Money; Pass
    Melkor (50): Money, Money
    Ransac (40): Money, Money

    China: Green 3, green 3 (non-scoring round)
    Bulls: All Green, Blue green and red, All Odd
  12. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Since I lose my china anyway, I'll take the BLur green and red bull.....


    EricBess (56): Money x 2; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Money x2; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Money x2; Pass
    Melkor (50): Money, Money

    Bulls: All Green, All Odd

    Without passes and having two money each, Melkor and Ransac really don't have a choice in the matter. Since both of the remaining china are the same, I might as well update for them.

    EricBess (56): Money x 2; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Money x2; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Money x2; Pass
    Melkor (50): Green 3; Money
    Ransac (40): Green 3; Money

    China:
    Bulls: All Green, All Odd
  14. EricBess Active Member

    Which brings us to needing more china. And another scoring round.

    EricBess (56): Money x 2; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Money x2; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Money x2; Pass
    Melkor (50): Green 3; Money
    Ransac (40): Green 3; Money

    China: Green 6, Green 8, Green 7, Red 7, Red 6 (scoring round)
    Bulls: All Green, All Odd

    Ugg...Well, this is a scoring round and everyone has money, so I could just take the biggest card out there. Unfortunately, since I'm in the lead, I could just seen Melkor or Ransac deciding to take a hit this round to bring me down with them... Everything's worth a ton...

    This will almost definitely be putting Spidey in the lead, but I'm just not sure what everyone would do, so I'll take the Red 6 and play it safe.

    EricBess (56): Red 6; Money; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Money x2; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Money x2; Pass
    Melkor (50): Green 3; Money
    Ransac (40): Green 3; Money

    China: Green 6, Green 8, Green 7, Red 7 (scoring round)
    Bulls: All Green, All Odd
  15. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I'll go ahead and take the Green 8

    EricBess (56): Red 6; Money; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Green 8; Money; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Money x2; Pass
    Melkor (50): Green 3; Money
    Ransac (40): Green 3; Money

    China: Green 6, Green 7, Red 7 (scoring round)
    Bulls: All Green, All Odd
  16. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Well, I'm screwed, so I'll pass

    EricBess (56): Red 6; Money; Pass
    Spiderman (52): Green 8; Money; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Money x2
    Melkor (50): Green 3; Money
    Ransac (40): Green 3; Money

    China: Green 6, Green 7, Red 7 (scoring round)
    Bulls: All Green, All Odd
  17. EricBess Active Member

    Huh? How are you screwed? Melkor and Ransac both still have money with 2 china left and it's a scoring round. The only way you are screwed is if one of them decides to screw you, but if they do, either of the bulls guarentees they won't be getting points this round, either.

    I can see one of them taking a hit to stop me because I have a decent lead. I could definately see one of them taking a hit if they could stop both me and Spiderman, especially Melkor, who isn't far behind. But I really can't imaging why one of them wouldn't just try to get points right now since not doing so will just allow me to increase my lead.

    Unless, of course, they want to just give up on first place and go for second ;)...

    Don't get me wrong, I'm all for you passing. It practically guarentees me scoring two china this round :D

    Ask yourself this - if someone were going to take a bull to screw someone, would they rather go after you or Spidey?
  18. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Then I still don't understand this game.... when does a round end?
  19. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I thought it ends after all of the china is taken, with alternating scoring and non-scoring rounds.
  20. EricBess Active Member

    Yes, Spiderman is correct. Personally, I'm okay if you want to change your play. But it benefits me more if you don't :D
