So one of the normal tribbles will reproduce and one of the three will be eaten by the cannibal. Theoretically this would work with just 1 normal tribble too, but if the cannibal eats first, the chain is stopped.
That's what I'm wondering. Because with two tribbles you'll soon have a Tribble infested bank.
Now I carried out a test.
I put 4 Random cheap Tribbles from the exchange in the Bank, along with 4 MRE's and 4 Cannibals. They did seem to fire in the order I suggested above.
HOWEVER: Some thing weird has happened.
I had the correct number of carcasses, yet I had % Normal Tribbles and 3 MRE's left after the breeding cycle.
