spoon-business: Win 2a

No, Wonko's right.  The Grid does become not of type Fire, but not before the end of the nweek, so I lose five points as soon as I land at (12,11).  Which means anyone who cut-and-pasted my previous scam didn't score a Win either.  But that still leaves me five points after the burn, and that's enough for two Gnomes...

So, just for future reference, please file this as a single action under the name vSOI Member Gnome Scam (the non-vSOI-Member Gnome Scam is slightly different, since the Gnomes cost more for non-Members):


I re-enter the Grid at (12,11).

I buy 2 random Gnomes for 4 points.

I Throw Out both Gnomes for 10 points.

I buy 5 random Gnomes for 10 points.

I Throw Out all 5 Gnomes and gain 25 points.

I buy 12 random Gnomes for 24 points.

I Throw Out all 12 Gnomes and gain 60 points.

I buy 30 random Gnomes for 60 points.

I Throw Out all 30 Gnomes and gain 150 points.

I buy 75 random Gnomes for 150 points.

I Throw Out all 75 Gnomes and gain 375 points.

I buy 187 random Gnomes for 374 points.

I Throw Out all 187 Gnomes and gain 935 points.

I buy 467 random Gnomes for 934 points.

I Throw Out all 467 Gnomes and gain 2335 points.


I hereby perform a vSOI Member Gnome Scam.

I score a Win.
