Re: Travidar's Ultimate Blacksmithing - YPPedia Guide *PLEASE REVIEW!*
The one thing I'm really interested in when it comes to blacksmithing relates to the end game and clearing levels in terms of scoring. When you get down to the last few pieces on the board, is it better to a) clear everything down to light silver (ie, create, if not use your last rum jug) or b) make more hits/clear more spaces entirely.

So, for example, you have 5 incomplete squares left, one dark grey and the other four silver. If you can either hit the dark grey one (thus getting another rum jug) or clear 2 of the other pieces, but not both, which is better? What if you could clear 3 of the other pieces? Or all 4 of them, leaving you only one piece, but that piece is grey instead of silver? Is there an approximate number at which point it makes more sense to do A rather than B or vice versa?
