Round: 10 Phase: 3 (Corporations Buys Companies)
DanielB: for newbies, red's are worth about $2 more than par value...don't overpay unless you know why you are doing so.
DanielB: we will try to do real time with zoom when many / most of us are available... Sergey, Dennis, let us know your general availability. Weekends are more open for most of us....
Sergey bids $5 for KME
Sergey: I will be available tomorrow from 10 in the morning (the US time)
Siddharth Venkatesh: Wednesdays and weekends. Those are my available times.
Siddharth Venkatesh: Tomorrow is bad for me now, I made a commitment to some work stuff.
Siddharth Venkatesh: But next weekend and wednesday are still open
dennislaumen: Hmm sorry, this is my first game. Real time play doesn’t work for me. Is this hard to do a couple of turns each day? If so and you don’t want to play that way I’ll happily bow out.
dennislaumen: Although I’d love to try the game.

dennislaumen: Passed, as it's my first game I'm afraid that killed it for me as I don't have a company now. I hope playing an investor as in 18xx is still viable in this game. Just pulling levers here, I should've been more aggressive in the early auctions though but paying 5 for the BME seems too much... I think?
Siddharth Venkatesh: You don't need to buy anything dennis, you're far from dead.
Siddharth Venkatesh: You're not playing investor necessarily, holding liquidity is fine. This is not an 18xx game, liquidity matters far far more here than in most 18xx titles. You don't necessarily want to invest all your money. There are companies coming in the next round.
Siddharth Venkatesh: Early companies matter more in v2 than in v1, but it's by no means bad to hold off. You are correct in not bidding 5, that would be an overpay.
dennislaumen: Thanks, Siddarth! Is this v2 then? Just checking whether I read the right rules :-).
Siddharth Venkatesh: Yes, this is v2 or stars. You can tell by there being no purple companies (no one plays the short/medium game online so v1 always has purples).
Siddharth Venkatesh: It also will say in the game title in the main page.
Siddharth Venkatesh: Feel free to ask questions. RS has a very sharp early learning curve.
dennislaumen: Is a rules PDF available somewhere for Stars? I couldn't find it on BGG or the AAG site.
dennislaumen: Thanks again, Siddharth.
dennislaumen: So I close this game and see the rules are linked on the homepage of this site, doh :-).

dennislaumen bids $15 for OL
JonathanB: Siddharth, I would take $8 for AKE this turn
JonathanB: Most likely
DanielB bids $16 for OL
JonathanB leaves auction
Siddharth Venkatesh leaves auction
Siddharth Venkatesh: I'll take AKE for 8 sure.
Siddharth Venkatesh: Actually, let me be more precise, I'll buy AKE for 8, as long as you don't buy a star share. I'm not as interested in buying AKE with a 50/50 split on Star.
DanielB: Sergey, you can oubid me on OL, but you have a good line on MS as well, or to buy the Star share, both are probably better than overprice OL. You also have SX option
JonathanB: Sergey isn’t getting MS
Siddharth Venkatesh: Sergey isn't getting the star share either :)

Star changes share price from $10 to $11
Siddharth Venkatesh buys share of Star for $11
Sergey: Should I buy Saturn ?
Siddharth Venkatesh: Probably not? I don't know if Daniel intends to pay dividends with it and it's not situated to appreciate that much in the short run. Getting a reasonably priced WT seems better, especially with both its synergies showing up. But maybe you don't get WT and then Dennis buys Saturn? That could be a risk, but in that case, sitting on cash isn't the worst idea.
Siddharth Venkatesh: It's not the worst pickup because Saturn does get to 8 income soon, but it's unlikely to really give you a decent ROI.
Siddharth Venkatesh: With your setup, I would have probably floated Star this round. Star does best in reds I found in v2.1 at least. I'm not sure this plan I'm doing is viable in 2.2, or in a 5 player game in general, but it seemed worth trying.
Sergey: Haw can Daniel buy Saturn share with 0 cash ?
Siddharth Venkatesh: He's not buying a Saturn share.
Siddharth Venkatesh: I said Dennis not Daniel :) Basically the scenario in which your bidding on WT doesn't work out is if Jonathan outbids you and Dennis buys Saturn.
Siddharth Venkatesh: Or if Dennis outbids you and Jonathan buys Saturn. But Saturn just isn't that appealing to me.
Siddharth Venkatesh: Anyways, bedtime now. I'm going to be away tomorrow, have a lot of meetings, but I'll check back in late night.
DanielB: Sergey, the issue is that Dennis may overbid you... on WT... still, in your position, its really probably worth it... (the $13..) you can float at $12 and buy in MHE and BME... probably better than buying a Saturn share, although I may very well pay dividends... i'm a little stuck.... My saturn would also, in a heartbeat buy any of your companies for max price...this round...
Siddharth Venkatesh: Floating with WT does look good to me, you have a good line at Jupiter. If you want to sell, I would be interested in the big red unless Jonathan and I have a deal on AKE.
Sergey: Ok! Thanks for the advice
JonathanB: I probably won't be selling Sidd the AKE after all
Siddharth Venkatesh: Makes sense, it doesn't do you much good to sell this round if you buy PR.
JonathanB: exactly
Siddharth Venkatesh: That's why I decided to outbid on BSE, I just need a second red for star to function properly. And BSE is such an undervalued corp. I wasn't excited about PR after floating Star, though it's sad to le

Siddharth Venkatesh: Wow what happened there?
Siddharth Venkatesh: Sorry about that, my keyboard went crazy
Siddharth Venkatesh: Maybe rewind time so the chat isn't screwed up?
JonathanB: its a pretty brutal game all and all. nobody's in a spectacular position yet
Sergey: Would Saturn be interested in buying my companies if I buy share ?
Siddharth Venkatesh: I'll buy MHE for max even if you don't buy a Saturn share Sergey.
JonathanB: puts you in a good position for yellow next turn
Siddharth Venkatesh: Also, you shouldn't sell BME to anyone else, it's value is much better as a private in one of your companies. You basically give up a full star for $2, it's a bad idea.
Sergey passes
dennislaumen: So, I'm tempted to bid on WT, but that would ruin my liquidity. Am I shooting myself in the foot by doing that? Don't want you to play my game for me, just don't want to make a move which bankrupts me in round 2 :-).
JonathanB: You’ll just form a corporation next round and buy your own company in, probably ending in a position to buy a yellow the following round
dennislaumen bids $13 for WT
dennislaumen: Alright then, let’s give this a go. Sorry for the questions everyone. The rules to this game aren’t that hard but it’s hard to grok. I think even more in digital form 😅.

dennislaumen buys WT for $13 from the bank

JonathanB bids $19 for PR
JonathanB buys PR for $19 from the bank
DanielB: Sergey. It’s not unlikely that I will dividend. I am not sure. It’s probably worth taking the chance at worst it’s a break even. We may even go I to business together.
DanielB: I’ll make you this offer. If you buy Saturn and sell it bme and mhe for maximum. I will dividend for maximum ($4).
DanielB: Leaves you with $20 cash and a share of Saturn which will be good due to its purchases of your reds
Sergey: Or I can start a new company. And put my reds in it
DanielB: True. But you buy new company in round three and start it in round four when the reds are already unprofitable ($2 maintenance in round fiur
DanielB: I might even dividend max a second round with Saturn in round three then you sell your share with the $20 you buy an orange and then the following round (four) a yellow. It’s a pretty good outcome from where you sit now
Sergey: Probably I will buy Saturn share and will sell you MHE
JonathanB: Sidd, if sergey sells the MHE to Daniel instead of you I’ll still take 8 for AKE
JonathanB: Is someone willing to sell an orange to the corporation I form with PR next turn?
Siddharth Venkatesh: Ok Jonathan, I'll buy AKE for 8.

DanielB: Dennis. I’d buy OL feom you this turn for $19
JonathanB: Dennis, I’ll buy OL for 19 and sell you BY for $16 or BD for $17 if you want it with the WT
JonathanB: Give Daniel the OL with his 2 corporations and he runs away with this game
Siddharth Venkatesh: Yes, please don't sell anything to Daniel at the moment. He is already ahead thanks to the 2 corps.
Siddharth Venkatesh: And Jonathan gains less than Daniel does and is offering a good deal in return.
DanielB: True
dennislaumen: Alright Jonathan. How do we go about this then? Right now I could use them to form a Corp.
JonathanB: You would pass with the OL and form with the WT at 16 so you have enough money to buy in the bd or by
DanielB: I’d like to point out that Sid is in a very strong position also. Don’t let him get BY or BD. Sergei and Jonathan this is on you both. Since Sergei is behind he should get the BY at 13and Sergei the BD at
DanielB: $14. But hey. It’s okay if you all mastermind against me. An honor actually:)

dennislaumen: Sergey, want to”trade” BY and SX next turn for $16 and $21?
dennislaumen: If I can even pay that by then 😅
Siddharth Venkatesh: Sergey has no company to buy SX Dennis.
dennislaumen: Can we do that in the corps buy companies phase or donee need personal liquidity?
Siddharth Venkatesh: Players can't buy privates from other players. Sergey can't float with BY and sell it to you, so he won't have a company next round to buy SX from you.
Siddharth Venkatesh: Floating with BY doesn't look good to me at this point. A synergy less orange is unappealing.

dennislaumen: I'm not sure that was a wise move, pulling levers 😅
dennislaumen: Would
dennislaumen: have been wiser selling it to Jupiter for liquidity.
dennislaumen: Ah well...
DanielB: Sergey, I'll buy BY from you this round if you like....
Sergey forms corporation Ship with BY at $13 - 2 shares issued.
-- Round: 5 Phase: 1 (Auctions And Share Trading) --
Saturn changes share price from $16 to $11
Sergey sells share of Saturn for $11
Siddharth Venkatesh: Don't worry about pulling levers, if you're inexperienced with this, it will take a number of plays for things to sink in. Watch the more experienced players and learn from their play, and you'll improve fast.
Siddharth Venkatesh: That said, for feedback, those floats were probably not good. Ship is going to find it very hard to capitalize and for Horse, you just don't have enough value to pull stuff out. If you were relying on Sergey to sell you BY, best to confirm such deals before floating otherwise you can end up in trouble.
Siddharth Venkatesh: Going over positions, I think despite my early lead, those floats are going to crush my liquidity sufficiently that I am now pulled back to average or so. I think Daniel's position is now also a bit tricky because of the spread on Saturn, but his position has decent potential. Jonathan is the big winner out of these floats, because once every company is floated and the float spots are clogged, Eagle is a powerhouse. He was already pumping to create a synergy monster.
Siddharth Venkatesh: At this point the game will depend a lot on who gets to float again. Floating new companies is very powerful, provided you have sufficient companies under your control to raid. For example, if I had gotten DR this round and the float next round, I think I more or less win the game right there. Obviously that won't happen now :)
Siddharth Venkatesh: When I say don't worry about pulling levers, I mean feel free to pull levers, don't feel bad about your inexperience.
Siddharth Venkatesh: My opinion on the game was that Sergey was best off selling BY to Jupiter and then Dennis had a good float. Floating with BY is going to create some liquidity challenges as Ship is just too low on capital. You were probably better off selling BY for liquidity Sergey and holding on to Saturn for one more round, or selling it for 13 rather than 11 to slow me down (which is valid).
Siddharth Venkatesh: After this long wall of text: Sergey, if you buy DR, I will buy it off you for max next round. So that will help your position recover, you'll have excellent liquidity.
Siddharth Venkatesh: Last thing before I go to bed: I'm a bit crushed with work at the moment. I started a bunch of new projects and unfortunately don't have much time to game. I will still be checking in on the game daily and making regular moves but I won't be thinking as deeply about this game as I did the last couple games with Daniel. Apologies for that.
Sergey: I am playing this game for the first time, and I don’t fully know all the game mechanics and strategies
Siddharth Venkatesh: Yeah don't worry about it, I understand.
Siddharth Venkatesh: I'm not complaining about your move :) Just trying to provide feedback so you can learn. Because the game is a tough one to get better at imo, it took me 4-5 games to understand the basic ideas of how to value things and manage liquidity.
Sergey: So I watch how other players play. And I try to do something and see how it goes.
Siddharth Venkatesh: Yeah, that's a good way to learn. You should also feel free to ask questions about whether moves will be good or not. It's sometimes better to be told certain moves are bad, rather than stumble blindly, because it means you'll learn more from the rest of the game. But if you would prefer me to not comment on the game while playing, that's fine too.
Sergey: No. Thanks for the advices =) I am thankful I can learn the game more
Siddharth Venkatesh: You're welcome. Daniel is better than me but I think I'm better at explaining stuff than he is :) You should definitely watch what Daniel and Jonathan are doing though. Jonathan is playing a very strong company focused game that will be slow early but will have massive payoffs soon in terms of income and growth. Daniel is playing an unconventional early 2 corp game. I'm playing more of a bulldozer that rushes out value early at the expense of long term growth, hoping to pivot in the middle. Had I gotten DR, I think my pivot would have been strong.
Siddharth Venkatesh: And back to actual game moves: my offer holds for buying DR for max in the round after this one. So you get 5 income from it this round and I will pay you 38 for it after.
Siddharth Venkatesh: That will set you up for a green company in the following round.
dennislaumen: Thanks for the advice Siddharth, and good luck with all the new projects. Don't worry about the game!

Sergey leaves auction
Sergey: Wouldn't it be too powerful if Eagle buys DR?
JonathanB: ...not for me
Siddharth Venkatesh leaves auction
JonathanB buys NS for $22 from the bank
Siddharth Venkatesh: I think giving Jonathan DR is really dangerous, though of course I'm biased because I also want DR myself.
DanielB: Sergey, its probably way to good for Jonathan, to sell him DR, it's also pretty good for you, to recycle into the next company... the problem is that you are behind, Ship is very weak...you need companies and synergies....or buy good shares, but it is very difficult to figure out what which will be the good shares, and when they will pay dividends...
DanielB: and that's basically a 2nd place strategy
JonathanB: It's $8 in synergies for both sidd and I. If you buy DR Sergei I'll make the offer this turn and let you decide! I do get if you think I'm the bigger threat
Sergey: If I will not buy DR now Jonathan will buy it next turn
Sergey bids $29 for DR
Sergey buys DR for $29 from the bank
DanielB passes
JonathanB: I do have a counterargument Sergey
Siddharth Venkatesh bids $24 for B

JonathanB: Since you're not in a position to compete for 1st place, the $38 I could give you this turn gives you more options sooner to boost yourself out of last place.

dennislaumen: I'm not sure I "get" this game yet but it's definitely interesting. The last couple of rounds I've been understanding what Sidd said in the early game about liquidity being more important here than in 18xx. Damn, that's true. I've been too careful with raiding my companies though.
dennislaumen: PS I'm not seeing a lot of cross investing... is that normal for this game?
Siddharth Venkatesh: Not quite. Usually people are able to float good companies :) In this game I managed to get my second star share, often people will buy that second star share because it is better than any orange in round 2. And remember Sergey bought a Saturn share.
B passes
-- Round: 7 Phase: 1 (Auctions And Share Trading) --
Siddharth Venkatesh: There is definitely some cross investing, especially early. But if people aren't able to form companies with multiple shares, then they aren't incentivized to really pay out with those companies and are going to money pump instead, and buying shares doesn't have value. The problem this game is that all 8 company slots went too quickly.
DanielB: Dennis, can we pick up the pace here?

Siddharth Venkatesh: Yeah, dennis buying B was a gift.
Siddharth Venkatesh: I can accomplish this plan by buying in B myself of course but it's a lot more painful for me.
Siddharth Venkatesh: I'm definitely surprised you sold in BSR daniel since it didn't look like you'd get a float this round. Did you not expect me to pay divs to get FRA?
Siddharth Venkatesh: I guess you don't really have any ability to raid companies.
DanielB: I didn't take the time to analyze the situation adequately Sid.... to be fair, HH is an upgrade to BSR...
DanielB: First, I try something unique (float Bear AND Saturn super early.) It didn't work, and I was forced to BK Saturn at a large loss. But Toby's software prohibited that interesting legal play. Now I'm just dismayed, B getting purchased at 50% premium to value gives you the win.... So the end is less interesting.... sigh....at least I did some serious experimenting this game
DanielB: V2 - lacks the liquidity to challenge situations like the current one.... I love this V2, but this is a downside...less ways to respond due to overcrowding of the stock boards
Siddharth Venkatesh: Yeah, it's very hard to do stuff when the floats fill up or the market gets overcrowded. Not being able to float mid game was a huge issue for me.
Siddharth Venkatesh: Jonathan is still in this though, I think he can get the last float.
Siddharth Venkatesh: After mine I mean
