Round: 12 Phase: 9 (Pay Dividends And Adjust Share Prices)
KLT1963: Good luck guys! Still reviewing the rules, so any seemingly bonehead moves are not some super-secret amazing strategy or anything....
KLT1963: Venser, I am playing you in Antiquity right now, correct?
Jythier: Awesome. I know the game pretty well, as far as rules.
Jythier: So if you have any questions on that, feel free to ask.
KLT1963: I have worked in Finance for 30 years. This game seems like that kind of work. Fortunately I like that kind of work.... ;>)
KLT1963: Cool. Rules seem very straightforward and logical.
KLT1963: So....any suggestions on how to start?
Jythier: Man, I'd hate to ruin your creativity by telling you the same old way to play. ;)
KLT1963: you just want to win..... ;>)
Jythier: The main things to remember are that you are not your corporation, and that there are no authorities auditing whether you're being fair to your corporations.
Jythier: So I try not to pay more than the value of a company + first turn income when I'm bidding, and when we get to later rounds it's best to get companies at face when possible.
Jythier: But valuing things is tough in this game.
KLT1963: Good insights, just what I was looking for, thanks!
Jythier: In my other game I was chided for paying too much. :P
KLT1963: This is just a learning game, anyway. Hopefully I will have an "ah-ha!" moment or two.
Jythier: I hope so.
Jythier: There's a really good strategy guide written by the designer.
KLT1963: I am playing Venser in a game of Antiquity (my first) and there have been loads of "ah-ha!" moments there...
Jythier: But mostly it's all about getting the money to do the thing you need to do to keep up with the pace of the game.
KLT1963: Cool. Knowing what you have said, I will probably end up being way too conservative and not investing enough. Kind of like how I play real life.....
KLT1963: Thanks again. Much appreciated.
KLT1963: Where are you located, btw?
Jythier: USA, Michigan.
KLT1963: Cool. I am located in the northern suburbs of Chicago.
Venser: Which part of Michigan?
Venser bids $8 for BPM
Jythier: Kinda where Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan all come together.
Jythier bids $9 for BPM
KLT1963: Not too far from Ft. Wayne, it seems.
KLT1963: Ever get to GenCon?
KLT1963 bids $10 for BPM
Venser: Me, no, I won't travel to the US.
Venser leaves auction
Jythier leaves auction
KLT1963 buys BPM for $10 from the bank
Jythier: I haven't ever been and I'm not sure I'll ever get there. It's close enough but I don't get to conventions.
Jythier bids $2 for BSE
Jythier: Indy is 4 hours, I think, and Ft Wayne is an hour away. We don't tend to get out that way. I've never visited Chicago, though I've driven through it to get to WI and visit friends.
KLT1963: I work in Kenosha
KLT1963: Venser, where are you from?
KLT1963 bids $3 for BSE
Venser: Toronto, Ontario.

Jythier bids $7 for KME
Venser: I used to travel to Chicago a couple of times a year (all for running). We'd always go there for cross country in the fall, and track in the winter. After university I'd go down to run the marathon.
KLT1963: Nice. Let me know if you are in the area. Would love to play som Antiquity and TGZ in person
KLT1963 leaves auction
Venser: As I mentioned, I don't travel to the US anymore. My name matches someone on their most wanted list, and unfortunately also shares my birthday. I've been detained, fingerprinted, had guns pointed at me, one too many times.

KLT1963: Well, given that this is a learning game, and I want to see what happens, I might as well see what happens....
Bear offers $20 for SX
KLT1963: BTW thanks for the two games over at boardgamecore (TGZ and Antiquity). I learned alot from our games.
KLT1963: Jythier, do you play any of the Splotter games?
Bear buys SX for $20 from Venser
Venser: I was trying to something different in Antiquity because it said learning game. I'm around 15 games into Antiquity and wanted to see if I could get the resource win off of one city (it's been done to me, but I haven't been able to do the same). It looked so efficient.
Venser: Normally I surround others for the win.

KLT1963: Venser, I thought that was going to be your strategy with all of those inns. Unfortunately you weren't able to keep up food-wise and had to keep placing graves.
KLT1963: Antiquity is a fascinating game, and I have only played it once (twice if you count the game I played around 10 years ago).
KLT1963: The new 4 player game we are both starting now should have some very different dynamics. Highly likely I will be the first one overwhelmed by graves, but should be fun nonetheless.
KLT1963: Also appears as if I am already overpaying in this game already.
KLT1963: Both of you guys, please feel free to critique my play as we go along. I would like to get your experienced thoughts on what I may be doing right or (more likely) wrong.
PR passes
Jythier: Ha I wish I knew how to play this game.
KLT1963: You seem to be doing OK so far. I should have paid attention to the upcoming orange companies. I think I overfocused on the reds that will be expiring pretty soon....
OL passes
Venser: I'd love to critique, but I'm the master at finishing in second place, doesn't matter the player count.
Venser: I have 14 logged plays, 11 finished in second.
KLT1963: At least you know enough not to mess yourself up. For the record, it appears as if your streak is holding as you are currently in 2nd place..... ;>)
KLT1963: In any case, this appears to be an interesting game. Ironically I work in Business Development and this is what I spend alot of my time doing (evaluating potential acquisitions).
Venser: I trade stock for a living. It should be second nature.
KLT1963: These days there appears to be very little correlation between where many stocks trade and their fundamental values.

Bear offers $3 for KME
KLT1963: Did not realize that his game ratchets up so fast. Once you miss a move you are toast. Looks like I am going to finish a very, very distant third.
KLT1963: Live and learn.
KLT1963: Venser any idea what happened in our Antiquity game? Why did it skip my countryside building phase?

Jythier: I'm actually doing very poorly myself. :P

Venser: I'll need to look at the Antiquity game when I get home. This is the only game I have access to while at work.
Venser: Did you have the resources for your building? It's the only obvious thing I can think of without seeing the game.
Venser: KLT, you're in a better position than Jythier. If Bear buys SBB for $33, you'll force me to react to whatever you do in the next round.
Venser: If you buy a share of Andriod, than I have to do the same.
Venser: If you buy either green company, I follow suit as well.
Jythier: Oh I'm in a terrible position.
Jythier: Woot.

KLT1963: Sorry for the delay, guys. Spent most of the weekend at work.
KLT1963: Venser, I did have a wood and a sheep in Antiquity and had manned two carts. No reason that the game should have skipped my countryside building phase.
KLT1963: Jythier, do you play Antiquity?
Jythier: Never spend the last wood, lol. No, I don't, I tried it once but it wasn't fun online. I think I'd like it more FTF

Venser: Now you have another interesting question KLT. In 9.3 do you sell a share of Android to buy a green, or hold off until 10.3 for a blue. If you sell in 9.3, I will as well and buy whatever you don't, as I have a company that can afford to pay for my company.
Venser: I guess it depends which blues show up after Jythier buys CDG
Venser: That's assuming Eagle pays a $1 dividend.
KLT1963: This is a very strange game. Antiquity "clicked" for me immediately. This one, not so much. Yet.
Venser: We both own three shares, and I have more money currently.
Venser: There's no way for you to pull ahead in relation to my position because Bear can't pay what Android can.
Venser: If you do nothing in 9.3, I'm not doing anything either. I'll pay out $4/share in Android during 9.9 so that in 10.3 you can't buy anything.

KLT1963: Not any great strategy by any means. Still trying to figure out what to do. Very clear that I am going to finish 3rd if I did what you thought I was going to do. Still likely to finish 3rd but at least we get a little excitement going...

Android buys MAD for $32 from Venser
Venser: Didn't want to do that, but I had to otherwise you get MM, the foreign investor takes VP, and if the buried purple is LE, I could have been in trouble.
Venser: Now at least I get MM, the foreign investor takes VP, and hopefully AL or LE is buried.
Eagle offers $23 for PKP
Venser: Can't do it.
Venser: I need the $45 income because I'm paying out $42 in dividends so I can afford MM and bump up twice. It'd need to be $27 for PKP, which is definitely overpriced at this stage of the game.
