Well, this appears to be a one-sided game for now. But last game was, too, and it turned around. This round, both Spiderman and rkoelsch tried to get the Dew for 4 gems, but Jigglypuff was ready for them... Gerode: Pass Spiderman: Stop rkoelsch: Stop Jigglypuff: Strike Fortunately for everyone, this puts Jigglypuff with few remaining gems and a few turns before he'll get more, so unless he sells one of his current resources, his spending limit is 3. He's in striking range of a win, but not if he sells, so it's still anyone's game. Current turn: Gerode (0 income) 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: 3-3 / Monkey (purple-40-1), Artesian Well (blue-50-0), Dew (blue-10-2) (90 pts) Let's keep the income cards rolling in with a Palm Leaf (tan-10-2) to keep the sun off. Bids due by Monday, but hopefully we can get one more round in before the weekend. Note to Jigglypuff: If you play a Stop or a Strike at the 4 or 5 gem level, please let me know with your bid which resource you will be selling if you actually win the bid. Even if you're only playing the Stop or Strike to get them out of your hand, there is always a chance to win the bid.
