Sent out the mass email, and I'll wait a day to see if anyone else signs up.

Looking at nine players, so two wolves and a GA.

I was hoping to have a Mad Midnight Bomber, but the game would be over way too quickly if we went that route.

This is why I was asking if we could stack extra lives on Jrs... and hoping someone with a life-adding power would take the hint.

It also looks likes the wolves had a night-kill in addition to the vig, or a power-redirect of some sort.
