Sorry for the delay. Wasn't my fault this time . Of course, I forgot to send the reminder note, so maybe it was my fault after all So, who wanted a Lizard. Well, Spidey did, stopping the bidding immediately... Gerode: Pass Spiderman: Stop rkoelsch: Pass Jigglypuff: Pass His risking deadlock or strikes pays off as no one else wanted it that expensive. So, it is his for 5 gems. Current turn: Gerode (income 1) Gems-Income/Resources (color-points-income): Gerode: 10-1 / Parrot (purple-30-1) (30 pts) Spiderman: 5-4 / Bugs and Slugs (green-10-2), Tree House (tan-50-0), Lizard (purple-20-2) (80pts) rkoelsch: 6-2 / Palm Leaf (tan-10-2), Wild Boar (green-50-0) (60pts) Jigglypuff: 6-3 / Monkey (purple-40-1), Artesian Well (blue-50-0), Dew (blue-10-2) (90 pts) No one noticed, but I had Gerode down as 9-0 last round. Since the Parrot has an income of one, that should have been 9-1, but it's corrected now and I hope it didn't cause anyone to bid differently. Of course, the card itself was listed correctly, so it shouldn't have been too confusing. As hunger rages on the island, the next card up for bids will be Fruit (green-30-1). One of those nice, mid-range cards. Hopefully, the turnaround wont be quite as bad this time. Bids are due Thursday.
