The newspaper zombies spawning instantly out of tombs as they appear in C6 are a problem. There isn't much time to build up before they are chewing up CGs. Trying to build a defensive wall may be necessary. And there are never a ton of zombies so TT on a column of LBns didn't do as well as taking Sr and putting it in front of the Tn. Maybe using all PF on Spearmint to fill the C6+ field with Sr right at the start.

This is the interesting part for me. It's a puzzle. If the streak wasn't so important I wouldn't use the Internet to get the crowdsourced solution.

Great score especially with your plant levels, @doireallyneed1. Will have to try out your strategy. I forget what that other mint does.🤔

Thanks. Pretty consistently scoring 4M+ with this lineup.

Re: the video - Oh of course. You can't stop tombstones but you can force them to move right if you leave open space for them. I tried using spikeweed as a filler to fill the space behind a C6 wall with only 2 spaces left to fill. My plants aren't cheap enough to do it with LBn. I haven't managed to finish a match yet because I keep getting a hole in my wall but the score seems promising if I can get the execution right. Some of it is a tombstone blowing a hole in the wall because it has nowhere else to spawn (row 1 gives it away) but there are eaten holes too.

One thing I noticed planting mints in C9 is that they break the hamster ball. Reinforcement and spearmint both did it.

Lawn: pre-planted 3 Twin Sunflowers Note: you can dig them up during setup stage to get more sun (according to lvl of your TSF), or leave them and get more sun in battle, especially with PF from the beginning
Hamsterballz: Excavator, Jester, Newspaper. Note: It's a bad idea to use Cactus. Even PF Cactus can be deflected by Jester.
Ambushes: Necromancy (Chicken, Newspaper), 1-3 graves constantly respawn at C6-9, some contain 100 sun. Note: Chickens and Newspapers are annoying, but destroying graves fast and stopping zombies from appearing produces less scores. Planting the whole lawn doesn't stop graves, plants are destroyed. C6L1 seems to be favorite for graves.
Zombies: Basic (from all worlds), Chicken, Newspaper, Jester (Hamsterballz), Excavator (Hamsterballz).
Buffz: Spear-mint.
Bruisez: no.
Ineffective: Bombard-mint. Note: all explosives except Jalapeno, Ghost Pepper and Hot Date.

Spear-mint advice: dig up 3 Spikerocks at C8 to make sure more graves appear there. It's better to plant Spear-mint when you have graves in your preferable columns, so that Spikerocks will not take those tiles.

Hey, they fixed Cauli!
