Once again, Spidey stopped the bid immediately. Gerode: Pass Spiderman: Stop rkoelsch: Pass Jigglypuff: Pass With no contenders, Spiderman takes the card for 5 gems. Current turn: JigglyPuff (income 3) Gems-Income/Resources (color-points-income): Gerode: 6-2 / Parrot (purple-30-1), Friut (green-30-1) (60 pts) Spiderman: 4-5 / Bugs and Slugs (green-10-2), Tree House (tan-50-0), Lizard (purple-20-2), Cave (tan-30-1) (110pts) rkoelsch: 8-2 / Palm Leaf (tan-10-2), Wild Boar (green-50-0) (60pts) Jigglypuff: 5-3 / Monkey (purple-40-1), Artesian Well (blue-50-0), Dew (blue-10-2), People (purple-50-0) (140pts) So, here's where we stand. JigglyPuff is 10 points away from 150 and now has 5 gems. Spiderman has also broken the 100 point level and is within striking distance. In addition, Spiderman has 80 points of a single color (tan) and Jigglypuff is sitting with 90 points purple and 60 points blue. Next card on the auction block? Rats (green-20-2). Pull out the knife and fork and get ready to dig in... Note to Spiderman. Since you are below 5 gems, if you strike or stop immediately, let me know what card you want to sell if you happen to win the bid. In general, that goes for everyone who gets short on gems. Let's make bids due on Monday, but hopefully, we can crank out another round before the weekend.
