And it’s almost enough for two greens. It is without collusion. Wow. What’s we all do wrong, I had no idea star could be this strong.

Toby: yea, it’s a classic daniel strategy :)
beorn: I read "denial" first. :o)
beorn: It's an anagram after all.
beorn: He denied me to take over Saturn this turn.
DanielB: First I was going to pay up to $25 for B then steal Saturn. But I decided it wasn’t quit worth the steal ATM. And I want to work collaboratively with Raymond and I am not sure the steal of Saturn would have helped. I wasn’t focused on bJoerns takeover. I though I’d deny Tonight the good share. Then I decided to just take a bear share instead of the Saturn steal. SBB for me would have been okay not it seemed to weak in light of Toby’s monster position.

Toby: should have bought DR, silly mistake
DanielB: Yes, DR would have been better, but it depends on whether you want to buy a good share with the difference ($19 istead of $16., I'd have bought a Saturn or bid Bjoern on BR -
Toby: didn't see that beorn had exact money for BR + E until after he bought it
DanielB: because look at that, Bjoern sells you SBB for $30 and $30 + $7 + $6 = $43, and he gets the $8 synergy with E next round

beorn: Toby, now you know why I had to insist on $30. :o)
beorn: Just that I don't get the synergy next turn because I cannot yet start a corporation (it would cost at least $3 or I have to do the risky and lossful "open at 4 shares and then sell 1" thing).
beorn: Thus, I am not sure it will put me in a great position, but I thought it was the best thing I could do.
DanielB: well, it's true, the synergy will have to wait until 8.8.... but its still the first $8 synergy....I actually don't think I can catch either of you.... I'll try my best, but if I gauge this right, I'm truly a long shot for 2nd...new game of 2.1 anyone?
Toby: let's play with siddharth when he's done with his thesis
Toby: rolling stock is such a great game though, i enjoy it so much
DanielB: Ditto Ditto! My hat's off to Bjoern, the incredible brain behind the design, and Toby, the close to immaculate creator of the App for non-F2F play!

DanielB: I clearly do not yet know how to value, and price-enforce the right prices on Oranges in the V2 game....Toby's bids of $12 and $14, in 2.3, float in 2.9, buy-in in 3.6, buy 2nd Star share in 4.3, were amazingly productive

DanielB: Toby, your view has been better than mine this game!
DanielB: i would have paid out full (leaving you $28, then sold at $27 and $24) = leaving you $79 of liquidity... which is unbelievable, then buy companies and steal companies!
DanielB: $79 is greater than $72, and you'd have at least one green... and you'd probably have stolen Saturn... or saturn and jupiter..and having a green, or DR at worst... but like i said, i can't quite figure out the early game (rounds 2-4)...ATM, more specifically round 2,

Toby: raymond, you should sell your saturn, it's going to get looted by orion
Toby passes
DanielB: RAYMOND, Saturn will get looted, and it will pay a $4 dividend this turn... I don't necessarily want to sell my share of Saturn next turn, it depends on my opportunities, of course, if you sell SAturn, Toby can then buy a share of Bear, and steal Bear from me, and that's really good for Toby, so please, don't sell Saturn. It's worth quite a bit to me. If you'd like me to buy SZD from you for max next turn, as compensation, I will. Alternatively, if you sit on Saturn, you can sell it in front of me next turn...
DanielB: Bjoern and Toby are way ahead, and however we can collaborate, I'd suggest we do... there's probably not a lot we can do... but sometimes opportunities materialize
Toby: it's better for you to sell saturn and buy an orion
Toby: Helping Daniel doesn’t help you at all
Toby: also I don’t think stealing bead is that good for me, Daniel is overstating that. IT mostly prevents Daniel from making a monster company
Raymond passes
DanielB: and Raymond can do that, next round. But if he does it this round, Orion will be much less good, if you take Bear from me, unless you'd agree to sell NS for $11.

DanielB: Raymond, Orion remains very underpriced. Despite the impending fall in income, I will be paying full dividends and double jumping! You may sell a share, but whatever you buy won't do better. When SZD becomes upprofitable to you, I'll buy it from you if you like....(reasonable price, like par)..(in order to keep Orion price ascending...).
DanielB: i suppose you can sell a share and steal LHR from Bjoern! but how shall Toby be stopped? it's all so exciting...
beorn: Isn't Daniel the one to be stopped now?
Toby: haha ya, the time to stop him was not letting him make orion, but raymond chose not to
Toby: but this is all part of daniels strategy
DanielB: Toby. You gave up your insurmountable lead when you didn’t full pay with star a second time. But you are still fully in the drivers seat. I suppose I should be quiet about what Raymond dine. He can make his own choices as can all of us
Toby: that’s not the only mistake i made, i should have bought dr and paid extra divs to buy bear without relying on raymond
Toby: i don’t know if paying full on star wins it for me long term though. maybe it does
Toby: i haven’t played v2 in a while, but i remember the end game arc relies on having a solid company or else you will plato
Toby: plateau
DanielB: Oh yeah. I’m heavily in danger of plateauing
DanielB: But not yet. 10.9 perhaps. Or 11.9
DanielB: Raymond. We can’t wait to get to the next stock round!
beorn: Am I here to proof that one might still lose with only green and blue companies?
DanielB: Possibly... Orange is surprisingly strong...Green too... Yellow, I can't figure out...Blue is pricey....and inflexible on floating. Can never float with 6 shares out to start... tight capitalization! I took away your $24 float intentionally (the optimal one, I think),... float BR at $24, spend all $14 cash, buy in E for all $58 with $4 remaining... so that didn't help your position....

beorn: ... please check out the share price row.
DanielB: Oh yeah. But I’m seriously considering issuing.
Orion passes
Toby: oh damn i messed up
DanielB: Big big mistake on my part not buying o l Oh well.
Toby: i thought i could form at 22
Toby: i’m dead now
DanielB: Nope. V2 is super tight. Etiquette question. What do you guys think. I could have rolled my pass back and made my move of buying oL in in 30 seconds. Instead I posted question to others but in the intervening. Time Bjoern made his move and didn’t see my chat question. Is it ever okay to do a quick roll back in the spirit of “fast games” or not?? Since only game owner can. It’s not totally fair.
Toby: don’t really want to roll back at this face
Toby: stage
Toby: let’s complete
DanielB: Nvm on my q. It’s not faire. Next. Maybe we can finish tomorrow?
DanielB: Eagles power is pretty strong. I’d be good to see it played with early company when there is a ginormous bid ask spread!

beorn: As the designer, I'm really happy how this game is developing. So many interesting things happened, and now I'm just loving how the blue share prices are all blocked. It's a bit of a chaos thing, but I like it.
Toby: agreed, has been a great game, but on my end sloppy play
Toby: but that’s what is great about it, you learn something every game, there’s so much depth
DanielB: And it is so unclear what my best play is!

DanielB: Yep, it was my plan, then I waffled, wanted to see what Toby would do.... Didn't get any satisfactory information... and came back to it, as "more good" than bad
DanielB: cost me a $1... will that be the difference?
DanielB: not buying in OL, costs me like $15-$20 in final score... that's what I wanted to take back.... I'm really surprised. I think that would have put me clearly in the lead. I didn't think I had a shot. I thought Toby could walk to the win... but now, with sloppy play, mistakes, and a speedy close, it's going to be a photo finish... .Wow what a different animal is V2!

Bear changes share price from $9 to $10
DanielB buys share of Bear for $10
DanielB: I can’t underst why you bought a share of Eagle Bjoern. It helped Toby and doesn’t seem to help you
DanielB: In fact. It helped him so much, he may win!
DanielB: I think you gave him 45 plus 6 vs 37plus 10. 51-47 is $4 x2 plus one share of 51-37is $14. I think you gave Toby a $22 present with your purchase of eagle
Toby passes
DanielB: my math is bad, $54 per share...damn... nothing to do about it now, except steal star...That extra $9 puts him past me...

beorn: My mistake was different from what Daniel thinks.
beorn: I didn't see the deep drop of eagle.
beorn: That made the buy bad for myself, rather than just good for Toby
Toby: the tight market is super brutal
Toby: maybe brutal isn't the right word, chaotic maybe?
beorn: ugh, I even miscalculated my last transaction.
beorn: Now it will even harm me more
beorn: unstead of being a no-op.
beorn: Drops in the end can be brutal. Otherwise everybody would just pay out everything in the end in most cases.
beorn: Now it's a bit more of a puzzle, sometimes a gamble on what others will do.
Orion buys BSR for $36 from Foreign Investor
Orion offers $18 for SZD
DanielB: Oh yeah Bjoern. It torpedoed you also! For me I finally had a share issue opportunity that was good for my Orion stock rising.
Toby: what's the point of offering $18 for szd...
DanielB: And I was very aware of it blocking out tobt so he would be left with the bear buys. And it’s be between you and me. I think we all end up 201-$210 now with Toby on top
Toby: can i roll back the szd offer for $18, it's a waste of time
Horse declines to sell SZD to Orion for $18
DanielB: Ok

Toby: haha
Orion pays $0 dividends
Orion changes share price from $33 to $41
Toby: what a game
DanielB: How many games features an opportunity to drop your net worth 15 percent in the last round with a single choice! I didn’t realize how good the 4p game could be.
DanielB: V2.1 ruthlessly punishes the absence of synergies
Toby: i thought i was dead in the water last round, but this game has been very bouncy
beorn: I had the perfect synergies, and modern companies, and still ruined it.
beorn: Not sure if I could have won without the Eagle mistake.
beorn: But in any case, the fact that it was so tight in the endgame really pleases me as a designer.
Toby: if daniel didn't get orion big, you would have won
DanielB: I should have issued earlier or withheld dividends to buy BSR in earlier as was my original plan...I paid too much attention to the opportunities that would create for others
DanielB: But Toby’s amazing starry with the wet at $16 with star was a brilliant thing
DanielB: Amazing start with the WT and the “Star” at $16 float
DanielB: Bjoern. I believe that despite modern tech and great synergies. The price Tag of “E” and LHR” are just a little too rich could have worked iif you can do it a little faster I think.

beorn: Thanks everybody. This was amazing.
Toby: super interesting game!!! thanks for playing everybody
Toby: the networth chart is incredible
Toby: anybody want to write a session report :)
Toby: it looks like my long term strategy did end up working out, although it was flawed (meaning it could be blocked), i'm glad that the basis of the strategy was solid. i wanted to maximize the end game because i've seen the final rounds difficult to make money
DanielB: It was. I think I have the time to write one.
DanielB: Raymond, good Morning. You've joined both the new games. I found your us waiting for you to take your turns a lot in our last game. Can you keep access to the games and make your moves at a faster pace/rotation, or is the pace we had in this game the only thing that works for you?
