This. But it’s anywhere from 1-10 depending on the card used against you. I’m too lazy to figure out an “average”, but if you really want and average, take the total number of scoops destroyed by one of each card and divide it by the number of cards.

Except who leads with bumhole? Shields stop a single scoop from being destroyed, occasionally two from shotgun and four if they use stray bullet while you still have shields. If I were to give this a hard number, 1.4 scoops per shield actually shielded. This is of no actual importance, even if you play dom. The presence of shields alters game play in several fundamental ways, depending on factors like your current strategy, the strategy of the person using cards against you, others I’m too high to list right now.

Maybe I should play dom more. Seems like people don’t give it much thought, I should be able to win bunches. Then again, I’d have to start playing this game again and I just stopped like a week ago. For some reason it would feel like falling off the wagon. Not sure I want to go there.

Except what people fail to account for is the fact that the card being used against you also cost that player 4 scoops, so even if it just blocks a thief or another single-scoop loss card, it’s still a net of 5 scoops, one that you didn’t lose, and 4 that the other player did.

-4 : cost of shield

+1 : scoop saved

+4 : scoops used by opponent

Exactly 12 minutes before deciding this wasn’t going to do the trick. Log in to see images!

The other was tasteless. Log in to see images!

The only cards that are mathematically sound are the bumhole and the Stray Bullet, and they are best used when you are supporting someone else. Numbers don’t matter, it is simply whether your shields outlast the destruction at the right time. The right time is the end of the round in an active bracket when it is too late to change your plans. At that time is it safe to bumume every Shield is saving you 6 scoops.

The theory that they save one scoop is flawed. If you had no Shields attackers would not use a plinking card they would use an bumhole. People plink until the Shields are gone and then bumhole, so it’s only common sense to bumume that if there are no Shields, bumholes will be used. If an bumhole hits you lose 10 scoops, if a Shield is purchased you lose 4. And none of it matters if you don’t end up with enough scoops to be on top in the end.

I miss LOST even though the ending wasn’t terribly satisfying.

Best television show ever.

The ending WAS terribly satisfying, however, as this is the best show ever, any ending would be lacking something, and that something would be the comfort in knowing there was more to be had.

The epilogue was bittersweet.

the reason i loved the end of lost so much is that they let me think about it. I got to interpret things how i wanted. Ive always known walt had powers. Did i care about why? not as much. Did i care why the bird yelled Hurley’s name? nope. did i enjoy finding out about why? sure.

Soon after lost ended i watched the anime code Gebum. decent show but towards the end they had to take an episode just to sit you down and explain all the mind**** stuff in the show. i liked trying to interpret it but nope. the creators wanted to hold my hand. It made me hate the show.

EDIT- whoever changed the title i love you.

I can’t wait until it’s been about a year or two and I will sit down and rewatch LOST start to finish. I had planned on doing so immediately after it ended but I think I want to let it get stale in my mind for a while. Rewatching season 1 with the ending known will be a real treat I’m sure.

i rewatched it all in the weeks before the 6th season started(hell i did this with all the seasons i think). i then rewatched season 6 immediatly after it ended.

but im pretty much waiting a year(or whenever i have a friend who wants to marathon it) to watch it all again.

Just saying that if you lead with bumhole, you deserve to lose, but that was where I started with my last post. Only a little nicer, because I don’t want people to hate me.

Also: I have never seen a single episode of Lost.
