weisswurst: Toby, you had put Brad Jones on autopass but in game 856 he is still expected to do something now.
Toby: yea, i closed his companies
weisswurst: Why did not the autopass work there?
weisswurst: But thanks!!
Toby: because he has a choice for which companies to close, the logic is non obvious
weisswurst: But he is not obliged to close a company, so autopass should just close none
Toby: he is because his company has negative income and not enoughcash
weisswurst: That is only true for players, not for corporations
Toby: so the company should just go bankrupt?
weisswurst: That is what the rules say
Toby: i see, i think you're right
weisswurst: If an autopass player himself has a few companies with negative income, this situation could indeed come up. I suggest to just close the companies with the highest negative income, with the least face value first or something like that.
An-Jen T: Since I am too lazy to look up old games, for those of you who are experts on v2.1, what is the consensus break even bid (over par) for the highest value red company on the first turn? 4?
DanielB: top price, $12 can work, really risky i think
Sean Coleman: Game 877 - I passed 4 times and the program still wants me to play though it says I passed
ZWS: you must close B or PR (negativ income is not allowed))
ZWS: Only if the Company has enough cash
weisswurst: That is actually a bug, see discussion above. Corporations are never obliged to close companies.
Toby: yea, it only closes the corp when there's 1 company left
ZWS: Yes, I see, the program should allow you to pass, and then the corporation will be closed. Still it is the easiest solution to close one of the two remaining companies.
DanielB: I'd like to run a Rollingstock at 9am on Sunday at Toby's Blitzcon...let me know if you'd like in....
Andy Mesa: I'll be there but we're already planning an 18xx game for Saturday morning :\
Talbatross: Saturday is not Sunday fortunately
DanielB: Sunday morning
Andy Mesa: ah, then count me in!
Talbatross: If we can finish in 4 hours then I'm down
Andy Mesa: that's plenty of time.
Toby: depends on who’s playing.
Andy Mesa: I’m not that slow :)
DanielB: Toby, join us on 904!,
Andy Mesa: if no SF people are interested I can ask some Portland people to join. I'd like to play with y'all though.
Andy Mesa: I asked Joe to join us, so we can start.
DanielB: Weiswurst, how about a v.1 with us? Game 904
Toby: your 904 is full already
