    I think I'd have more luck with a 0/0 dart monkey against a ZOMG.

    Ok finally got pretty far into this. It turns into hooking every BFB until you run out of abilities or win.

      This DC is by Pat. Did you intentionally edit his name out of the description? Seems kind of petty, but whatever.....

      Completed NAPS with ~ 50 lives remaining. Lots and Lots of boats. Eventually you will have enough 2-3 boats that you don't need to hook every bfb. I got my farms up to 2-2 pretty early.

      Edit: Re-did challenge NAPS. See picture.

        Any tips for 66?

        I had about 7 X-4 ships and loads of 2-3 as well, and the BFB children just swarmed me...

          I used sell-rebuy. If you farm heavily (you can have 3 farms 2.2) and sale all 3 before 66 and buy more 2.3 ships, then you might have a chance. But starting from lvl-1 it is tiring

            Usually when there is no name on the DC it means someone at NK designed it. So it's possible "Pat" is a NK employee. They are less concerned with NAPSFRILLS than we are. I had 9 2/4 Buccs and still had to do a lot of sell/rebuy

              Ah OK will try that.

              Also just so you know abhijit, I'm fairly sure 2-2 banana farms is a fairly bad investment in terms of cost to reward ratio - probably worth just sticking with 2-0's

                Yes, I agree they are bad investments. When I tried my own I used 2 of 2.0 banana farms. After reading onlinegamer321's description I thought I would try to spam 2.3 ships and not use the pull at all. So, I was trying for maximum money hence used 3 of 2.2 farms.

                  2/2 farms will technically end up with a net gain (AFTER you sell them), but the gain is very small. So not much of a problem if you only want to go 2-0.

                  Also, I ended up with 7 2-4 bucaneers I believe. No towers other than farms were ever sold, so what is in the picture is everything I bought.

                  bikerXtrash There is a name on the DC description. "Pat". Junior Monkey went out of his way to remove it from the picture for reasons I'm not quite sure of. He's probably just trolling. I messaged him asking to put it back in.

                    On Hard, it takes 13 rounds to come out just ahead for farming with 2/2 farms. Here's my table for calculating breaking even:
