well I guess everyone bar you would be happy with that outcome! Go for it, yes I think so, unless it was a major competition. However rr the pushes? Defo no.

Agreeing with someone? I know, a first for me but yeah, Harvestmouse is right. Nuffle despises greed, and being offered a way out - push push push - that is ALSO a portent of doom should have set alarm bells ringing.
Even though statistically there should be nothing stopping you making that block, the TD is more important.

Lost possibly the best werewolf ever rerolling push/push into skull/skull. Recently lost a legend clawpomber against Carlo doing the same thing.

And yes, I've had similar things happen to me. I would have just taken the 3 pushes and maybe tried to blitz/block with a different player and saved the reroll for that.

About 15 games ago, I had certain score on turn 8 of first half. Score 0-0.
I decide to try and get an hogob of the field with a 2D blitz with re-roll.
I wouldn't have risked a re-roll on the 2nd block, but double skull into double skull meant I didn't score, and ended up with a tied game.

hmm... It was still, definitely a good call to make the block. I don't know any experienced coach who would not make such a block, particularly in a unwinnable game, with a team still in the midst of development. In my experience, most people will try all 2-die Blocker blocks before scoring, and sometimes even non-Blocker blocks, or 1-die with a RR. If you can't win, you have to try to maximise the SPP that you can get, and the fact that occasionally statistical insanity can happen shouldn't stop you from making a good call.

Yeah, I'd have certainly taken the 3d. I also would never RR pushes on the last turn...

Agree with Harvest and Hito.
Block was right, reroll was not.
If the TD would not change l into d or d into w, then maybe the reroll was ok as well.
