    Well, whaddya know... it's another mystery item. PM your bids by Monday, 7/31 by 7:00 AM EST.
  2. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    No bid from Oversoul...

    train stops the bidding in the first round at 5 gems. The cards played at that point are:

    Oversoul: <no card>
    Ransac: Pass
    train: Stop (bidding)
    turgy22: Pass

    No one played a Strike and normally since train played the only Stop he'd get it, but even after selling his current item, he wouldn't have enough. So I'm going on to the next Stop bid card, which is Ransac AND turgy22 in the fifth round at 1 gem. The cards played up to that point are identical (they must have had the same idea):

    Oversoul: <no card>
    Ransac: Pass, Pass, Pass, Strike, Stop (bidding)
    turgy22: Pass, Pass, Pass, Strike, Stop (bidding)

    So they each pay 1 gem and have a tie-breaker for the mystery item.

    Round 13a:

    Current turn: Oversoul: 3 income

    Player(Total Points)/Gems/Resources (color-points-income-value)

    Oversoul (50): 6/Lean-To (tan-20-2-2), Bugs & Slugs (green-30-1-3)
    Ransac (100): 7/Volleyball (purple-20-2-2), Picture of your SO (purple-10-2-1), Gallon of Milk (red-40-1-4), Mai Tai (red-30-1-3)
    train (10): 0/Beef Jerky (green-10-2-1)
    turgy22 (90): 1/Jug of Water (red-50-0-5), Bottle of Wine (red-10-2-1), cellphone (purple-30-1-3)

    Sold Resources: Teepee (tan-40-1-4), Piece of Driftwood (purple-50-0-5)

    PM your tie-breaker bids by Thursday, 8/3 by 7:00 AM EST.
  3. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Ransac stops the bidding again in the fifth round at 1 gem. The cards at that point are:

    Ransac: Stop (bidding)
    turgy22: Strike

    turgy22 plays the only Strike and gets it! The item turns out to be a food item - Steak (green, 40 points, 1 income, value 4)

    Ransac needs to tell me if he wants a new item or one of the sold items up for bid.

    Round 14:

    Current turn: Ransac: 6 income

    Player(Total Points)/Gems/Resources (color-points-income-value)

    Oversoul (50): 6/Lean-To (tan-20-2-2), Bugs & Slugs (green-30-1-3)
    Ransac (100): 13/Volleyball (purple-20-2-2), Picture of your SO (purple-10-2-1), Gallon of Milk (red-40-1-4), Mai Tai (red-30-1-3)
    train (10): 0/Beef Jerky (green-10-2-1)
    turgy22 (130): 0/Jug of Water (red-50-0-5), Bottle of Wine (red-10-2-1), cellphone (purple-30-1-3), Steak (green-40-1-4)

    Sold Resources: Teepee (tan-40-1-4), Piece of Driftwood (purple-50-0-5)
  4. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Ransac picks a new item, which is a shelter - a Tent (tan, 10 points, 2 income, value 1). PM your bids by Monday, 8/7, although if you get them in before I leave work on Thursday, I can post a new round.
  5. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Well, that was quick, everyone got in their bid today! train does his usual and stops the bidding in the first round at 5 gems. The cards at that point are:

    Oversoul: Pass
    Ransac: Pass
    train: Stop (bidding)
    turgy22: Stop

    No one played a Strike so turgy22 and train tie for it. train has to sell his Beef Jerky and turgy22 needs to tell me what he wants to sell for 5 gems. Then they need to re-bid for a tie-breaker

    (Man, this game is odd)

    Round 14a:

    Current turn: Ransac: 6 income

    Player(Total Points)/Gems/Resources (color-points-income-value)

    Oversoul (50): 6/Lean-To (tan-20-2-2), Bugs & Slugs (green-30-1-3)
    Ransac (100): 13/Volleyball (purple-20-2-2), Picture of your SO (purple-10-2-1), Gallon of Milk (red-40-1-4), Mai Tai (red-30-1-3)
    train (0): 0
    turgy22 (130): 0/Jug of Water (red-50-0-5), Bottle of Wine (red-10-2-1), cellphone (purple-30-1-3), Steak (green-40-1-4)

    Sold Resources: Teepee (tan-40-1-4), Piece of Driftwood (purple-50-0-5), Beef Jerky (green-10-2-1), turgy22 item(s)
  6. turgy22 Nothing Special

    Rules clarification: how is it handled when someone bids more than they can afford?

    It seems kind of unfair that the item train is selling is only worth 1 gem, while I have to lose 5 gems worth of winnings before the rebid. Not to mention that after the rebid is over, if train wins, there's no way that he can afford the item. I'll check the previous threads on this one, but if you have an answer sooner, I'd appreciate it.
  7. train The Wildcard!!!...

    I try... ;)
  8. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Yeah, I already asked EricBess (who ran this game previously and has access to the rules) when this started coming up. He said
    He's a busy guy so he hadn't gotten back to me on exactly what happens and you're right, it is sort of unfair, so here's my ruling:

    If there's a tie, the players involved need to sell enough resources to pay for the item. If one cannot, then the other player who can sell enough gets it. If there are still two or more players who can sell enough, then there's a tie breaker round.

    So according to that, train can't sell enough to pay 5 gems so he keeps his Beef Jerky. So turgy22 will win the item but still has to sell enough resources to pay for the 5 gems.

    So we're moving on to Round 15 and train needs to tell me if he wants to bid on a new item or bid on one of the sold ones.
  9. train The Wildcard!!!...

    new item
  10. turgy22 Nothing Special

    Alright. I'll sell my jug of water.
  11. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Okay, here are the stats:

    Round 15:

    Current turn: train: 2 income

    Player(Total Points)/Gems/Resources (color-points-income-value)

    Oversoul (50): 6/Lean-To (tan-20-2-2), Bugs & Slugs (green-30-1-3)
    Ransac (100): 13/Volleyball (purple-20-2-2), Picture of your SO (purple-10-2-1), Gallon of Milk (red-40-1-4), Mai Tai (red-30-1-3)
    train (10): 2/Beef Jerky (green-10-2-1)
    turgy22 (90): 0/Bottle of Wine (red-10-2-1), cellphone (purple-30-1-3), Steak (green-40-1-4), Tent (tan-10-2-1)

    Sold Resources: Teepee (tan-40-1-4), Piece of Driftwood (purple-50-0-5), Jug of Water (red-50-0-5)

    You're now bidding on another Shelter - A Grass Hut (tan, 30 points, 1 income, value 3).

    PM your bids by Monday, 8/7 by 7:00 AM EST.
  12. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    train does his usual of Stop Bidding in the first round at 5 gems. The cards played at that point are:

    Oversoul: Stop
    Ransac: Pass
    train: Stop (bidding)
    turgy22: Pass

    No one played a Strike so it'd normally be a tie-breaker between Oversoul and train, but once again train can't sell enough resources to pay 5 gems so Oversoul gets it!

    Round 16:

    Current turn: turgy22: 6 income

    Player(Total Points)/Gems/Resources (color-points-income-value)

    Oversoul (80): 1/Lean-To (tan-20-2-2), Bugs & Slugs (green-30-1-3), Grass Hut (tan-30-1-3)
    Ransac (100): 13/Volleyball (purple-20-2-2), Picture of your SO (purple-10-2-1), Gallon of Milk (red-40-1-4), Mai Tai (red-30-1-3)
    train (10): 2/Beef Jerky (green-10-2-1)
    turgy22 (90): 6/Bottle of Wine (red-10-2-1), cellphone (purple-30-1-3), Steak (green-40-1-4), Tent (tan-10-2-1)

    Sold Resources: Teepee (tan-40-1-4), Piece of Driftwood (purple-50-0-5), Jug of Water (red-50-0-5)

    turgy22 gets to say whether he wants to bid on a sold item or a new item.
  13. turgy22 Nothing Special

    New item!
  14. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    New item it is! It's a drink - Beer (red, 20 points, income 2, value 2).

    PM your bids by Thursday, 8/10 by 7:00 AM EST.
  15. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    train Stops Bidding in the first round at 5 gems. The cards played at that point are:

    Oversoul: Pass
    Ransac: Strike
    train: Stop (bidding)
    turgy22: Pass

    Ransac plays the only Strike so he gets it! And almost to 100 points in one color...

    Round 17:

    Current turn: Oversoul: 4 income

    Player(Total Points)/Gems/Resources (color-points-income-value)

    Oversoul (80): 5/Lean-To (tan-20-2-2), Bugs & Slugs (green-30-1-3), Grass Hut (tan-30-1-3)
    Ransac (120): 8/Volleyball (purple-20-2-2), Picture of your SO (purple-10-2-1), Gallon of Milk (red-40-1-4), Mai Tai (red-30-1-3), Beer (red-20-2-2)
    train (10): 2/Beef Jerky (green-10-2-1)
    turgy22 (90): 6/Bottle of Wine (red-10-2-1), cellphone (purple-30-1-3), Steak (green-40-1-4), Tent (tan-10-2-1)

    Sold Resources: Teepee (tan-40-1-4), Piece of Driftwood (purple-50-0-5), Jug of Water (red-50-0-5)

    Oversoul gets to say whether he wants to bid on a sold item or a new item.
  16. turgy22 Nothing Special

    And Ransac is 30 pts away with 8 gems to bid. Looks like this game is his to lose.
  17. EricBess Active Member

    Don't forget that it's his turn next and he has an income of 8, so for all practical purposes, he has 16 gems ;)
  18. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    Truth be told.... I have NO clue what the heck I'm doing. :D


    ...Just went and checked the rules. Looks like it's 150 points or 100 of one color. Hmm.......... :D


    Ransac, cpa trash man
  19. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Um, sold item?
  20. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Sorry if it was unclear, but if you're picking a sold item, you get to pick which specific item.... :)
