Re: TD 380 - Mother's Day - B1-B2 revealed

Thanks for hosting (and letting me play)! How do I put this delicately? It would appear that having a preview of the questions didn't provide any advantage - at least this time. :D I loved the sheep insurance option and if you don't mind, I might add it to a future game of mine - it really is a coo...

This might be the lowest scoring TD of all time. :D
Definitely lower than I planned, but there's a reason for that. One that involves a first time host and some stupidity. :oops:

I'll explain that once I'm done with the reveal. Kind of a "lessons learned" moment for future hosts.

Have you taken any sheep insurance into account yet or is that for the end?

(I couldn't remember if I used it for the murder of crows or not.)
I'll deal with the sheep insurance at the end. (Gotta keep some suspense going, you know!)
