**The easiest Joint to rub out is the
Hotel Belgrave.** Only 3 hits are required to wipe it out. Your
boys score an average of 4 hits per player-turn. But hitting the
Belgrave is expensive. The Joint Guards will nick an average of 3 of
your boys. Jeez, dat ain't good.

**The cheapest Joint to hit is Serva's
Market.** Your expected first-turn casualties are equal at BOTH
Serva's and Middle House, but, since 4 hits are required to rub out
Serva's, compared to 7 at Middle House, the shootout at Middle House
will be longer - exposing your hoods to more return fire!

The following table may be useful to aspiring
dons...such as *Don* Greenwood or *Don* Hawthorne. If might
be useful if your name is not Don too!

The probabilities in the table can be added for multi-piece sides in a battle. Thus, the expected number of hits scored by a 4-strength Racketeer, 3-strength Thug, and 2 Joint Guards (from a Level 1 Joint) is 0.67 + 1.00 + 1.00 = 2.67.
