Long time (almost 19 months), no M.U.L.E. and I was in the mood for playing a round. It didn't go particularly well, partly due to I'm misjudging my round times and didn't get those top notch crystite plots right away.

Sure. It probably involves some moderator action if I should be able to edit your post.

Here we go again... In tonight's game, there were a few attractive mountain complexes that made me want to go for smithore for a change. However of course I wasn't alone in this task, so I never could dominate the market. Remarkable is that in round 2, a total of four plots with High Crystite were assayed but neither yet assigned to a player so they all lie there as ripe cherries to pick in the next round. In round 5, I was in desperate need for a river plot which explains why I overpaid $1000+ for one. Why I paid almost $1100 for a standard plain plot in round 8 is due to the computer tricked me, nothing important about that plot.

 

In the rounds 6, 10 and 11 I had so little to do that I waited out the Wampus and caught him thrice, something I very rarely have time for. In the end, I didn't even last to remain in second place and scored even worse than yesterday, which I at first thought was a rather mediocre score but upon closer look was rather decent even if nowhere a record.

Note how the winning computer scored more than 35000 pts. As noted before, it is not common for computer players to reach that high.

Thanks. It appears the powers already have been at work, which leaves only your Excel sheet for me to update with scores.

Since I didn't fancy any more burgers, I determined it was M.U.L.E. time.

 

One noteworthy event was in round 8 when the blue computer played traded in 90++ units of crystite at $64 each, without even being close to financial trouble. At first I thought he knew something that the rest of us didn't. In the following round, the price increased to $136 without any pirates in sight so the blue player essentially lost $6500 by selling prematurely and dropped two positions in the overall standings, just like I did.

@CapitanClassic and @Rybags might be interested in the game I played above, there was one round where seemingly no event happened. There sure were food to destroy, mules to crazify, crystite to steal etc so while according to the spec something ought to happen every time, once in a blue moon the effect is that nothing changes.

@carlsson, A random event is always chosen, but it might be the case that nothing could happen. for that random event. The most likely event with Nothing happening are Pest Attack, since that events requires a player in 1st/2nd place to have a Food Plot. (Most other events would be difficult/impossible to not satisfy the necessary requirements)

Pest Attack

A random Food exploitation owned by one of the two first players and having produced at least 1 unit of Food lose all its production.

Blue had food in round 2, but perhaps it was traded for crystite by round 7. I can't recall about red which was in second place by the end of round 6, but probably that is what happened.
