    I edited it since all your turn did was add a second Money to your stats.
  3. EricBess Active Member

    Well, we're getting near the end and I don't like my options this turn, so I'm going to pass.

    EricBess (102): Red 6; Money
    Spiderman (84): Red 6; Money; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 4;
    Melkor (87): Money, Money
    Ransac (67): Money x2

    China: Red 3, Blue 6, (non-scoring round)
    Bulls: 2 blue and 2 red

    It's been too long to rethink what was going on, so while I could mirror EricBess since he seems to have a plan, I'll take the Blue 6 China

    EricBess (102): Red 6; Money
    Spiderman (84): Red 6; Blue 6; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 4;
    Melkor (87): Money, Money
    Ransac (67): Money x2

    China: Red 3 (non-scoring round)
    Bulls: 2 blue and 2 red

    I take the last Bull.
    Need to wait for EB to refill the bull..... :D

    EricBess (102): Red 6; Money
    Spiderman (84): Red 6; Blue 6; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 4; Money
    Melkor (87): Money, Money
    Ransac (67): Money x2

    China: Red 3 (non-scoring round)
    Bulls:
  6. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Well, actually, Melkor has to take the Red 3 China since he has two Money already. So EB needs to refill the Bulls AND the China :)

    EricBess (102): Red 6; Money
    Spiderman (84): Red 6; Blue 6; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 4; Money
    Melkor (87): Red 3; Money
    Ransac (67): Money x2

    China:
    Bulls:

    No plan Spidey. I'm just paranoid of the bulls. I didn't want the one that was there and I'm too afraid that an "All Even" will pop up and I'll be stuck without money :D

    Okay, down to business.

    EricBess (102): Red 6; Money
    Spiderman (84): Red 6; Blue 6; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 4; Money
    Melkor (87): Red 3; Money
    Ransac (67): Money x2

    China: Green 4, Blue 3, Red 4, Blue 4, Blue 6 (final round - scoring round)
    Bulls: All Even (there it is...), Any 2, 2 Blue, Any 1, 2 Green

    I'm not sure what to make of this set of cards. I guess we'll have to see how they play out. Ransac, you're up... I have a feeling I'm going to want to be able to pass again :D
  8. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    What the hell... I'll take the Blue 3.

    EricBess (102): Red 6; Money
    Spiderman (84): Red 6; Blue 6; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Green 4; Money
    Melkor (87): Red 3; Money
    Ransac (67):Blue 3; Money

    China: Green 4, Red 4, Blue 4, Blue 6 (final round - scoring round)
    Bulls: All Even (there it is...), Any 2, 2 Blue, Any 1, 2 Green

    Grr...I'll use my pass...dang it. Yeah, Ransac, I figured you would take that because it was the only china there that would survive the all even bull...

    Okay, I don't need to win this round, just avoid anyone getting a runaway score. I really want to take the 2 green bull to force spidey to pass, but I'm afraid that if I do, no one will have any incentive to take the all even anyway and I won't be able to.

    So...Let's clear it out. I'll take the all even bull.

    EricBess (102): Money x 2
    Spiderman (84): Pass
    Mooseman (40): Money
    Melkor (87): Red 3; Money
    Ransac (67):Blue 3; Money

    China: Green 4, Red 4, Blue 4, Blue 6 (final round - scoring round)
    Bulls: Any 2, 2 Blue, Any 1, 2 Green
  10. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Gotta take a Bull although I think the game will end before I get another turn, so I'll take the 2 Blue Bull.

    EricBess (102): Money x 2
    Spiderman (84): Money; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Money
    Melkor (87): Red 3; Money
    Ransac (67):Blue 3; Money

    China: Green 4, Red 4, Blue 4, Blue 6 (final round - scoring round)
    Bulls: Any 2, Any 1, 2 Green
  11. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Blue 6

    EricBess (102): Money x 2
    Spiderman (84): Money; Pass
    Mooseman (40): Blue 6
    Melkor (87): Red 3; Money
    Ransac (67):Blue 3; Money

    China: Green 4, Red 4, Blue 4, (final round - scoring round)
    Bulls: Any 2, Any 1, 2 Green
  12. EricBess Active Member

    Yeah, I think that's game. Mooseman will get 24 more point (6x4).

    Even if you get another turn, Spidey, the most points you could get at this point will be 16, which is also what I will be getting.

    Melkor and Ransac will get one of two outcomes, depening on whether they take the 4 in-color or out-of-color with what they currently have. In-color they get 3+4+7+7 = 21 points. Out of color gives them 7+7+4+7 = 25 points, so I'm guessing they both take out-of color since they both have the option to do so.

    Assuming everyone goes best-case scenario at this point, final scores will be:

    EricBess: 118
    Melkor: 112 (close)
    Ransac: 92
    Spiderman: 84 (sorry about that ending, but I think you would have won if I hadn't done that)
    Mooseman: 64

    Overall, I think it went okay, but I'm not sure it's good enough to warrent another go anytime soon :D Thanks for playing everyone.
  13. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    That was OK, I just missed the "scoring round" stuff.

    And the Scoring seems a bit strange......

    We need another non-magic game.
  14. Melkor Active Member

    It's interesting enough, but yeah, not that many decisions to make. I'm surprised I was able to come back as well as I did what with my screwing up the first scoring round.
  15. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    No worries, I finally started thinking ahead of what other players might do when we were about 2/3 done with the game :rolleyes:
