Excuses, excuses...

Although I do wonder if I did figure it out. :P

All y'all are obviously much smarter than I am :D Makes it clear why even the Arena AI beats me sometimes :p

I'll keep on trying though. I've seen folks say it's possible, so there must be a way!

For my own sanity's sake: this needs to happen in ONE turn? Can't siphon back to health a bit and re-use all the troops that Myrym would revive?

It's perfectly possible to do in one turn- in fact, I'm pretty sure you can go OVER 18 damage to some extent. However I do wonder if we're a bit too late, given that this started at the beginning of November. Fun to do though!

Yes, it's definitely possible to not only kill on the same turn, but to have overkill.

As I said: that goes to show why I'm the perpetual newbie around these parts :D Been playing since the start of Alpha and I still can't figure this one out :D Here goes another try!

EDIT:

I do believe Matt indicated he'd let the contest run for another week, until the next episode.

EDIT2:
This is where I must admit shame... Madame Anana's power, would that be inherited by "Pile of Bones"? I think it might. But certainly not by the Shroom's hoppers, right? That'd be too odd.

Yes, the bones inherit, the hoppers do not, transform vs. create.

Well, can't get it over 17 resources without going into a next turn and using Myrym... I'll keep a lookout for the solution once it's revealed :D That'll teach me something I'm sure!
