Round: 4 Phase: 1 (Auctions And Share Trading)
DanielB: Hello Folks, Welcome to the Stars! it's quite a different game than Rolling Stock v1. The arc is different. I'm in the process of writing a review... Synergies are more important than ever, as is liquidity, which is lower than in v1, despite the ability to sell a corporation into receivership. There are only 7 available corporations
DanielB: And there are only a maximum of of 37 shares, versus a potential 100 shares in v1! lots of stragegic maneuvering. Remember your liquidity constraints, ask questions, and please have a smart phone, so we can have moves and the pace of the game move quick enough for us to not lose our momentum. Please utilize the tools of autopass, especially if you bid for something, but are not willing to bid higher Auto Pass(cehcked entities will pass this phase)
Siddharth Venkatesh: I need today to read the rules.
DanielB: very little difference in Round1 Sid. Maybe the red's have a smidge more value
SaiSaysPlayGo: rulebook states 8 corps and 44 shares
SaiSaysPlayGo: where are the corp powers listed?
SaiSaysPlayGo: starting cash is only 25!
Siddharth Venkatesh: That's true in 6p in general.
DanielB: my bad, yes, 8 corporations, not sure why i was confused, but i'm afraid i forgot to float in a recent game!
DanielB: https://github.com/beorn7/rolling_stock/blob/master/rules.pdf
DanielB: for 2.1, Horse is now a 7-share company (having swapped with Star, which is now a 5-share company)...
SaiSaysPlayGo: I read about Star and Orion's special power, but can't find mention of the others
DanielB: Jupiter - extra $1 for each company.
DanielB: Saturn (4) - double income of one company
DanielB: Star (5) - extra two stars-always
DanielB: Bear (5) - $10 credit towards cost of ownership maintenance
DanielB: Eagle - (6) issue shares with no change in price
DanielB: Orion(6) - get 1st option and buy at par value - from Foreign Investor
DanielB: Ship (7) - close companies and receive 2x income of each
DanielB: Horse (7) - get +1 for each PAIR of synergies
DanielB: a pair would be two synergies (i.e.), 4 connections, MHE-BPM + MHE KME, would give you +1 total
DanielB: its' mathematically not possible to float and receive more than two shares in v2 - (as opposed to up to 4 shares in v1 - much more limited range of pars for Corporations
SaiSaysPlayGo: thank you
Venser: The only thing I can't help you with is the smart phone. I don't own a cell phone so you'll have to wait until I'm sitting in front of an actual computer to move.
Venser: Other than that I'm still learning the ropes to this version.
Venser: In my head, Saturn seems like the company to start unless you can ensure many synergies
Siddharth Venkatesh: The number in the parens is the number of shares?
Siddharth Venkatesh: Saturn's ability seems nice but it also then has only 4 shares worth of capitalization.
Siddharth Venkatesh: At first glance, Saturn seems extremely good at lower player counts where you can more reliably feed companies into it. But this is just rambling for now, I need more experience before I can make any such assessment.
Venser: I'm trying to assess the value of each as well.
DanielB: Indeed. Jupiter and Saturn almost never make it to the end without reincarnation
DanielB: Well. They can gobble without dying which makes the Corp availability really bad

Siddharth Venkatesh: Jco, do you want to buy BY into Star next round?
Siddharth Venkatesh: You can buy in WT this round, issue with Star and then buy in BY next round.
Siddharth Venkatesh: I'd like to know if this is a deal that interests you before making my SR decision.
jco: Yes I'm interested
jco: What price though? Obviously I want as little as possible and you want as large :)
Siddharth Venkatesh: So full disclosure: I probably buy a Star share here since it's nice and cheap and there's nothing else to spend money. Next round, I will have 5 assuming you don't pay any dividends this round. The price will depend on whether you are willing to pay a dividend in the round you buy the company in. If you are, then I could go for less than max but otherwise, I may be left too low on money.
Siddharth Venkatesh: But knowing you're interested, I will buy the Star share here and we can make a reasonable deal next round. I will obviously not need to stiff the company too hard since I will own a share as well.
jco: Sounds good

DanielB: Jco. As an experienced xx player I think you might want to know you seem to have paid a lot for MS. It’s value is all in the many orange and yellow $2 synergies. So have a plan to get those. I$18 is a bit expensive for two stars.
Siddharth Venkatesh passes
jco: I see. I appreciate you telling me that, always good to learn from my mistakes. fwiw I'm definitely like, thinking about the money and trying to get a return etc. but as I'm new my sense of the value is still off, so I appreciate it
