Well, it's finally happened. This was a very interesting set of bids. Here's the rundown: Gerode: Pass, Strike, Stop Spiderman: ???, ???, Strike rkoelsch: Strike, Pass, Stop Jigglypuff: ???, ???, Strike With both Gerode and rkoelsch stopping the bid at 3 gems, both Jigglypuff and Spiderman Striking at 3 gems. The two Strikes cancel each other out. The two stops force us to look at the full bidding history for Gerode and rkoelsch and count the Passes played. Both Gerode and rkoelsch played one Pass. That's the last tie breaker, so we have a bidlock. Both players pay 3 gems for the bidlock. Current turn: Spiderman (still - no additional income) Gems-Income/Resources (color-points-income): Gerode: 12-0 / none Spiderman: 10-2 / Bugs and Slugs (green-10-2), Tree House (tan-50-0) (60pts) rkoelsch: 8-2 / Palm Leaf (tan-10-2) (10 pts) Jigglypuff: 3-3 / Monkey (purple-40-1), Artesian Well (blue-50-0), Dew (blue-10-2) (90 pts) You are still bidding for a Parrot (purple-30-1). But, since we had a bidlock situation, only those involved in the bidlock are bidding. That's rkoelsech and Gerode. Spiderman and Jigglypuff get to sit this "round" out. Bids due by Friday from Gerode and rkoelsch.
