Supports nuclear holocaust in the form of clan love.

The Stray Bullet: This card discards a random Domination card from the opponent of your choice.

This card is often overlooked and undervalued, in my opinion. I find myself always with the same sets of card in the same order. If there is a Modest Improvement, I will pick that first. Next, a Shield or a Thief, depending on my choices. bumholes typically come next in my priority. Finally anything else that destroys my opponents cards. Lastly the Peeping Tom, I never find it useful unless I have a ****ton of clannies in the bracket.

What I’ve been realizing lately is that the Stray Bullet is really a lot more useful than I had previously thought. Looking at it from a pure opportunity cost/benefit analysis standpoint you are trading in four of your scoops to essentially destroy four of your opponents scoops. Not only that but you are also getting rid of the potential for your enemy to either gain scoops or destroy some of yours.

I find that the opportune time to use the Stray Bullet is universal. Unleashing it early can alter your opponents’ plans or demoralize him/her completely. Late in the round, especially during the card slinging, it can totally **** up a strategy and prevent someone from medaling.

So what are your opinions and thoughts on this? I am reaching too far; is is too late; should I not expect to be able to have a decent discussion?

Use SBs to ping your opponents shields versus heavier attack cards.

Or to ensure that you won’t be bumhole’d when you use it in conjunction with the peeping tom against some cheekier opponents.

better to use destroyers/thief cards for that, really… bullets are AMAZING for ****ing up someone’s fave flavor strategy and can put a dent in a mins strategy. you just need to have enough of the bullets to take out switches/moddies… and since it’s random, it’s better when you have the numbers on your side. (but that’s pretty much a given with all of dom)

anyway, my card choices depend on what I’m doing that week. if I’m going for medals, I’ll go switch, moddies, shields then bullets, thiefs, bumholes, destroyers. if I’m playing just to be a raging **** and take everyone out, it’s bumholes, bullets, thief, destroyer then moddies and shields. peeps are occasionally helpful, but mostly just for my curiosity… I like knowing what people have left when I’m done throwing strays sometimes.

Hi Nevkick. Welcome back to the game.

MIs to me are almost useless based on typical endgame strategy other than as bait for other people’s strays. I notice that you didn’t mention switcheroos which are by far the most important card if you are trying to win medals.

I would say that all the serious domfabulous persons consider the stray bullet the best card by far as an attacker. Here is a thread from back when it was introduced:

Thanks Malaise, I was subtly wonder if anyone outside of BF would remember me. Yes, I definitely forgot to mention the Switcheroo; no one gets min scoops without one now that INCIT is dead. I’ve tried getting chocolcate scoops, it sucks.

Wb nevkick. Although I tend to think that everyone in BF is either Amasius, Cheb, Catt or space.
