I wonder if this is a glitch. I have less than 40 elves right now.

Unless I massively oversleep, my next cannon fire is going to be the last time I have a stockpile to eat in to

Excess elves? I remember that just like it was yesterday...

After the corrections to my math from my original errors due to lack of sleep, the results make a sort of sense. It seems to me that the developers figure most people can't or don't check in as frequently as some of us do. The most elves per shot is 13 (39 per set of 3 shots). Max elves possible 6 x 24 = 144 (from spawns) and 4 x 3 = 12 (from tunnel). This works out to be exactly 4 sets of 3 shots at 39 per set. This indicates to me they figured most everyone would only check in 4 times a day. Since that fits how things have been going for me currently; and I'm ahead of the daily bells needed as a result; I'm not seeing any reason to need to be able to fire the cannon as frequently as possible. I believe that there are some including me who are/were concerned that not being able to fire it as often as possible would mean not getting enough bells to get all the prizes. I estimate average per day from elves shot we will get 11 elves x 5 bells x 3 shots x 4 daily sets = 660 bells. At least 330 from tapping friends. 33 from daily login (per day average of the 5 day cycle). Tapping friends canon or tunnel net an extra 5 bells per tap and clearing a friends tap of your cannon or tunnel net an extra 5 bells each. At most 33, in any combination, of those would be the most you need to meet the daily bells. Sorry for the side trip in math for bells.
