    I'm sure everyone has seen this happen: You've just spawned, you go upstairs in your hall to grab some bombs or whatnot, and all of a sudden, BOOM, your base is blown halfway to heaven, and you're dead. Now, I'm sure many of you know that this is related to demolition shops, but I don't think the reason is exactly well known. That mysterious KABOOM, is the result of mines exploding. "But mines only explode if an enemy steps on them" you may say. Not so. A mine can explode for all these reasons too:

    It gets caught in a door,
    It falls after being armed,
    Fragile, Do not drop.gif
    It gets shot by an enemy arrow (Couldn't get a decent screenshot so have a cat in a box)
    An enemy corpse lands on it.

    So, kiddies, when you build yourselves a demolition shop, make sure you don't build it where any of the above could happen to your mines.

    P.S. Feed the cat.
    P.P.S. Thanks Trumbles for your corpses! ::P:
    P.P.P.S. I didnt make the gif of maru the cat, just googled it up.

    This might belong in Builder section rather than building critiques, sorry. :QQ:

    Yeah, Demolition shops are a real special case. Might have to build them behind the main base instead of on top. More resources spent on building. >.>
