Only Jigglypuff wanted to try to get it for 4 (or more) gems, stopping the bidding with his second bid. However, at least two of the four players decided that they wanted to try to protect against someone else getting it early. Gerode: Strike Spiderman: Pass rkoelsch: Strike Jigglypuff: Stop Since there were two Strike bids, they cancel each other out and Jigglypuff takes the Artesian Well for 4 gems. Since it is Jigglypuff's turn immediately, he pays 4 gems for the well and receives 1 back from his income. The Well has a 0 income, so he doesn't get any additional there. Current turn: Jiggleypuff (1 income) I just realized I have been neglecting to update total income on the resource list. Not sure it really helps much because each resource lists its own income, but still... Gems-Income/Resources (color-points-income): Gerode: 15-0 / none Spiderman: 8-2 / Bugs and Slugs (green-10-2), Tree House (tan-50-0) (60pts) rkoelsch: 15-0 / none Jigglypuff: 7-1 / Monkey (purple-40-1), Artesian Well (blue-50-0) (90 pts) Thus we move on to the next resource up for grabs. Looks like we're sticking with water, but moving to the other end of the spectrum. Dew (blue-10-2). Low value, high income. How much are you willing to spend for Dew? Bids are due Thursday.
