Tom Francis: Great shopping today! I even bought a shotgun! Then I lost it in a panic! Then they had another shotgun on sale but I couldn’t afford it! Then, see cause of death.
Glad to see Chris T did the same thing I did with the dart trap and the spider on 1-1. Also approve his renaming of the Mansel to Nigel Mansel.
Quick admin note: if you make a Score post, a) thanks! and b) change the category from ‘Daily’ to ‘Scores’, so it shows up when people click the handy shortcut on the right.
Chris Livingston: As soon as I saw the shotgun on 1-2, I knew everyone would be buying it, and of course I didn’t have nearly enough money, and I didn’t want to feel left out, so I just took it. Still not sure how I survived the black market or Kali’s wrath or really anything else, but this is one of the few times I predict my own death (repeatedly) and it doesn’t happen! By the end I had like all of the things except for the jetpack. All of the things!
Anthony Burch: I had more bombs than I’ve ever had today. And I screwed it all up because I didn’t notice a spaceship explode almost entirely offscreen. I’m also learning that robbing the Black Market isn’t that difficult except for two really big problems: firstly, the amount of time it takes will almost certainly summon a ghost, and secondly, if you already have shopkeeps angry at you by the time you enter the market you’ll have to deal with a final, hard-to-kill shopkeep at the black market’s exit.
Am I the only person reliably robbing the shopkeeps in the explorer’s club? I saw Jason rob a bomb shop a little while ago, but am I the only mass-murdering bastard here?
Jason Killingsworth: I kill ’em all and let Kali sort em out. It’s the best way to maximise both cash and inventory. The only time I delay my rampage is if the first shop I come across has a meagre selection (a single pair of spike shoes and a bomb bag, etc). In that case, I’ll buy those items and start robbing when I see bomb cases/cape/jetpack/etc.
