I stick with "shire" because it looks like it'd also be a decently strong word from the data here, but also because I'm a nerd.

Its quite strong frankly, ran the numbers.

  • 88.21% chance of atleast 1 yellow/green match
  • 50.28% chance of atleast 2 yellow/green match
  • 42.98% chance of atleast 1 green match

So continue your journey through the shire =D
At that % it's pretty much rounding error from optimal play, if your playing as team human (or hobbit)
