Toby: it puts him at $23
Toby: i'm not going to overthink it. i don't think it's too bad.
DanielB: yeah, it just makes my current decision much more difficult
Toby: that i agree with :D
DanielB: Any offers for AKE or KME?
Toby: i only have $5
DanielB: I'll sell them as a package for $1 under max ($10 to WW, $14 to me)?
Toby: of course not, don't be silly
DanielB: $14 for my two, is better than $10 for his one
DanielB: 2x the income
Toby: it gives you the win
Toby: my deal is set
DanielB: maybe, but you just pushed your own position back, and WW forward with your four-word response...I suppose I could buy a share of your's as part of the deal

DanielB: with a masterfully planned Yellow in Phase 3, you mustn't get any presents....
Toby: gotta be max
Toby: you have exactly enough
DanielB: at max, I'm afraid you'll have to eat it... I'd like to squeeze you to $6, but I'm not feeling greedy...
Android offers $7 for BPM
Toby declines to sell BPM to Android for $7
Toby: i'm not accepting anything under $9
DanielB: my view is always, each round after purchase, it's worth less, so third round, it's worth about $4 less to you... But for synergies sake, it's worth more to Android... hence a bid of $7 and not $3.... but $7 is my top bid right now...
Toby: i'm not selling

Toby forms corporation Bear with SBB at $13 - 4 shares issued.
DanielB: I'm no longer happy w my decisions.
DanielB: Weiss worst, would you have excepted eight dollars for the MHE last round?
DanielB: Toby, when you offered to Weiss worst full price for the MHA last round, was that part of the plan to get the SBB or did that happen before your SBB plan was developed
Toby: i could have bought sbb either way, just one round later
Toby: there were many possibilites, but all of them ended with me getting sbb
DanielB: I've always found it challenging with the SBB.
DanielB: Wish I'd a bought mhe
DanielB: 3p is better than I remember. Sometimes
weisswurst: @Toby: nicely played, but next time when I make a deal with you, I'll have to make it explicit that a deal involves an obligation to make it happen ;)
weisswurst: Anyway, I expected that Daniel would not take over Android, to avoid that Toby would take SBB one round earlier. Again, I misjudged the situation, I am really bad in guessing the decisions by other players.
weisswurst: @Daniel: I would have indeed considered selling MHE for less than max, because now I am in a dead position.
weisswurst: Will you buy MHE this round?
DanielB: Sure. But it is worth so much less this round than last ($5 less to be exact)... oh weh! We will have to figure out a compromise...
DanielB: To be honest, I was satisfied to see the turn of events. Toby's offer was too good for you. And I was still vexed and perplexed at your overbid of me on the HE. So. I kinda thought you had it coming. Now Toby's ahead. But not, I think, horrifically
weisswurst: Toby's offer made you take over Android, that is why that deal smells a bit. My mistake to let this course of events happen.
DanielB: $4 of income for two rounds.... need a profit. Buy an android share and I'll buy Mhe for $5 and pay a max dividends
DanielB: I agree. It does smalle
DanielB: I agree. It does smalle
DanielB: Smell. But did he really know I'd take over android ? I don't think so. I did however see it as a big mistake when you did t defend the offer by buying an Android share for $10. Needless to say, it was all pretty juicy
weisswurst: The HE bid, my reasoning was this: HE for list price would be very good for you, and Toby and I would probably be bidding on SX. I thought you would bid on SX to let him pay more or to get SX yourself. Then there would be a sitation where we all would have to negotiate to sell the oranges to each other. That would equalize the things more than it would be with HE for you and SX for either Toby or me. But I guess I was overthinking.
DanielB: Decent thinking. I figured for crappy synergies u could leave me HE at face
DanielB: Also. I almost never ever pay more than face for HE, SX, MS or PR
DanielB: WW. Ha shiulda tried to get me to bite on mHE. I was open to the idea last round
weisswurst: I went to bed before you bought up the Android shares, and when I woke up we were in the next round....
DanielB: Fair enough. I'm usually more proactive. I think I was peeved about Toby's offer and about HE overbid, that I said screw it instead of putting the $8 bid out there for MHE. Also. Toby shut me down on my decent $7 bid for Bpm so I suppose I was a little exasperated. Let me know your thoughts on the current game state. I need to turn it off as I'm in bed...
weisswurst: My thought is that I am in a bad situation, need to think if the 5$ is something useful, or that I better absorb HE an MHE in a new corp.
weisswurst: Will think a bit, wish you a good night!
weisswurst: Selling MHE will not be so useful right now. I think we should set up a builder seller coop. I am willing to sell HE for 17 now. Then I can buy DR and sell it as well to you as soon as Android has money again. Next round you can buy MHE for min. You get a great corporation, I get liquidity, and we deny Toby DR.
Toby: What an insane game! And it's only the 4th round.
DanielB: Weisswurst, builder works, sure, but I don't see Android ever monitizing HE well. In fact, Android has better income from MHE than from HE. Just buy a share of Android and sell MHE cheap, angle for a Green in Phase 6, I'm not sure we should go out of our way to deny Toby DR....besides, if he goes for DR, you can possibly take his corp from him...
weisswurst: why should I buy a share?
Toby: Cuz it helps him out.
Toby: Let's continue the game!
weisswurst: I really need to sell HE somehow, or I am dead lost. Will sell it to my own corp then.

Toby: it would have been really tough to get more. I wouldn't buy the dr for more than 34
Toby: Not at this stage in the game.
weisswurst: I guess I can live with 34. Just need to be sure you will actually buy it.
Toby: :D if i agreed this time i would promise to make it impossible for daniel to take over my company
Toby: but i don't think i should buy, DR, it would slow me down too much
Toby: ok sorry, i cannot buy DR from you
Android passes
Toby: i could buy it from you next round for max though
weisswurst: There is not much I can do, and I think you will win this game anyway (not sure why you think my position is "fine"). So guarantee to buy DR from me for max next round?
DanielB: WW, too early for that. Your a bit behind, me, I'm a bit behind Toby. But I really don't think any train has left the station yet. That being said, we'll have to try to help each other, rather hurt each other, so things tighten up... never easy, but good to keep in mind... builder / trader, etc... if toby buys your DR for max, that seems a good start...

That being said, we'll have to try to help each other, rather hurt each other, so things tighten up... never easy, but good to keep in mind... builder / trader, etc... if toby buys your DR for max, that seems a good start...
weisswurst: Mmm, maybe I am too pessimistic. But a quarter of my value is locked in a share that will spiral down. If I buy a company that nobody will buy from me, I can wait forever for the come back. Sure #2 and #3 should help each other to catch up, do you have any ideas?
weisswurst: In the meantime, waiting for the confirmation from Toby
DanielB: well, Seems like you can issue and dividend, issue and dividend...that's will net you another $6 over the next few rounds...ideas.... don't do anything too good for Toby... come on WW, you know this game... your a shark, you just have to bide your time...
DanielB: nice to see another professional Whiner!
DanielB: You shouldn't have bid $16 for HE! And in my opinion, especially a lower count game, $11 is too much for MHE, but that's just my preference, your a pro-you got your own style, it works 90% of the time, this was the outlier!
weisswurst: I guess so, still learning.
Toby: what do you need from me weiss?
Toby: i told you i cannot buy DR $34 this round
Toby: and don't listen to daniel he always understates his position
Toby: i could try to buy it in 2 rounds, but i haven't done the math
weisswurst: Yes, that is ok. But you also said you would buy it for max next round. Is that a deal?
Toby: let me do the math first
Toby: i don't want to be wrong
Toby: ok, i think i will have the money to buy max, but it's possible that daniel could steal my company again
Toby: i won't dump my company, but i may sell 1 share of it
Toby: so i would like to buy DR, but i cannot promise you that it will happen because of unforseen circumstances
Toby: that's all i can predict for now
weisswurst: That is too insecure. Daniel, I have a new plan for cooperation in order to slow down Toby.
Toby: collabing with daniel will just make daniel win
DanielB: Well, that is the goal, isn't it Toby :)
DanielB: Ah come on guys! Stealing any of these shit companies really dosn't matter at this stage... As superior as Bear looks, relative to Eagle and Android, it's still shit! And if I steal (god forbid I have better ideas)... what a gift horse to Toby! Shall we continue (this kibbutzing and negotiation really is enjoyable however...)
weisswurst: I buy PR, so Toby cannot buy it. If he sells a Bear and buys a yellow, you steal his Bear and buy PR from me. If he does nothing or just buys a share, you do nothing either. We can swap some money and companies with Eagle and Android in that case to make Android a bit stronger. You buy PR from me next round.
Toby: haha, i thought of this possibility, i didn't think you'd do it though
Toby: because i think it's better for you to just buy pkp
Toby: it requires daniel to not do anything though and stall
Toby: ok, i don't care anymore. weiss let's make things interesting
Toby: i will buy DR from you for $34
Toby: this round 100%
Toby: let's do it
DanielB: fundamentally, I like the idea of you buying PR.... Android would like PR... yes, I could we can get there... issue a share with Eagle. you buy PR, Android will hold $9, (giving it $12, then issue a share, and buy PR from you for 22-24$ in 6.6 ), you will even have enough money to buy an Android or a Bear share.... if you want...
weisswurst: Ok, suddenly I have two options.
Toby: ok you have two options now. $34 for DR or you can buy PR with daniel, let's go
weisswurst: Will go for the DR deal.

weisswurst: so you are going to open a new corp with renfe?
Toby: or, i can buy pkp from you in 7.6 and you won't get android dumped on you
weisswurst: i am indeed not so interested in android
weisswurst: daniel, just sncf?
DanielB: It made sense if I could shed android. Without that. I gotta think about it more.
DanielB: I'm trying for you and I to do deals... we keep failing
DanielB: If u withhold and sell a share android will have $18. Its a start for a $9 investment. Consolidate with eagle and your at $40 plus. Enough to buy next company im
DanielB: If I can buy a cheap green I'll go go public and buy SNcf.
DanielB: I.e. If the sj or szd co
DanielB: Maybe a takeover next round when I'm at $6?
DanielB: Friendly takeover
weisswurst: I am thinking.
weisswurst: Android will not be good for me. I think I am just going to buy sncf, and we will see what happens, i guess we will probably cooperate anyway.

-- Round: 7 Phase: 2 (Form Corporations) --
DanielB: WW, want to buy a great share? and do something collaborative? they call 3-p cut throat for a reason, I finally have an immediate plan, but I need you to do one thing, which I think, is good for you. And I can sweeten it with a commitment to do a full price offer of SNCF in phase 6
DanielB: So I'll float Renfe and commit to a $30 buy out of SNCF in 7.6. I need you to either: buy a share of RENFE corp at $18 or buy a share of Bear at $18. What do you think (I'll then buy sj at a $2 premium)... You'll still be behind, but Bear is a monster, and RENFE/SNCF/SX should be quite good as well...)...
weisswurst: Thinking, sounds interesting.
DanielB: thanks... it's nice to come up with an idea that is kinda balanced and not complicated and it's immediate...
DanielB: it actually tightens us all up, your set up for a blue, and Toby add's $12 of income to Bear with the cheap PKP...damn, it may be worst for me... keine Ahnung
DanielB: Need to know before I float
weisswurst: Am busy at work, give me some time
weisswurst: I think it will not work well. Toby has to many good options. He could steal your new corporation, he could steal eagle before buying pkp, he might sell a bear and buy sj anyway.
weisswurst: I think it is better to wait a round. You earn good money with your green. I can buy in sncf with eagle. Next round we will have more options. One of them is still forming with renfe and buying sncf.
DanielB: If he has to sell a share of bear that's fantastic. If he steals eagle that's gives you more liquidity and stops his engine. Right now his option to buy pkp is a terrific one. But bear is a little weak longer term considering his dilution. Forcing into a third yellow instead of a second green is going to hurt. Your options will multiply with an eagle with $46 next round.
DanielB: Are you sure you want to decline buying a renfe new share with $22 of income and only four shares outstanding (or a bear w $30 of income and 7 shares?
weisswurst: No, I am not sure. But what if he takes over your new corp?
DanielB: He can't. Even if you buy bear instead of new Corp. He'd need $36 to steal my new Corp. And I'd be fine with that as I could liquidate for $18-$20 next round. And Toby would have lost the ability to buy companies for a while.

DanielB: WW, I"m open to ideas that are good for us. We've got challenges
DanielB: I like Toby's position
Toby: I'll sell you pkp
DanielB: of course you will... and it's good for me...especially if you'll take a ddiscount... We should probably make it a twofer, PKP, then BSR
DanielB: can you name some prices I'll like?
DanielB: at least FRA came out, if it had been MAD, HA< HH< HR, you'd be over the rainbow next turn....
DanielB: WW, the strongest thing would be to consolidate Horse into a dividend monster... but that is going to take 2-3 rounds...
Toby: 29 is a fine price for it. You get 12 income.
Toby: You have he money. I planned for bear to buy pkp for max anyways.
DanielB: Ww, I'm interested to know your thoughts. We are in a pickle and I have ideas, but what are yours. I will be offering g for am for. I'm curious as to the price you'd demand for bsr. Slowdown sounds good if we can develop shares and dividends or stock prices
DanielB: Offering for sncf
DanielB: Offering the $30 as promised. For sncf. We ready to move on Gentlemen?

weisswurst: I am not sure slowing down is good. Toby is just making too much money. I would rather speed up. If you buy sncf from me this round and bsr next round for max, then I can buy fra which is also good for your corps. I think I will buy MS from the FI so it will buy E next round and we will have quicker access to blues and purples.

weisswurst: what exactly is your plan, Daniel?
DanielB: I would love to have ms. But it is t worth the risk of unveiling a $45-$49 blue for Toby. I want him to gag on his non synergistic corps. And the available companies are ideally suboptimal
DanielB: At the moment I'm going to build bear.
Toby: game is too slow, i've stopped caring and it's starting to drag
DanielB: I agree that it's starting to drag. But saying you do t care? We have one European time zone and two players Troy g to fight back Toby... WW, we can both endeavor to pick up the pace, I think Toby has a point foe this round. On the other hand I'm on the slopes with Family, it's a weeek d and maybe WW had been busy too?
Toby: it's been a long time since i've played online. i think this style of play is just not for me. it's hard for me to stay interested when the pace is so slow.
Toby: but this game is reminding me why i took a break from online play
DanielB: How's the crowd looking for the 29th. What are you keen to play?

DanielB: Weiswurst, wish you could have joined me for the ride. I almost posted something telling you to hold on to Eagle. But before I did so, you'd already sold it. I thought my takeover of Eagle would help you. And it would have if you were now holding that $11 Eagle share. Oh well, anything I can do to swing good things your way, and not hurt myself, I will. You got the first blue... and Jupiter is tapped out of money... . this is going to be quite an end game i think!

-- Round: 14 Phase: 10 (Check Game End) --
Game over. Toby ($295), DanielB ($288), weisswurst ($252)
Toby: good game
DanielB: What a game! if I, coulda, shoulda, account minimization... Wow - and 4 Takeovers!
DanielB: If I go public with TSI and pull companies in and buy a 4th or 5th share... does that end me up higher? I think so....
DanielB: Was my takeover of Jupiter worth it?
weisswurst: Grats, Toby!
DanielB: Takeover of Android - - not worth it (shares cost $10 and $11)
Toby: it was definitely an interesting game, so many takeovers
DanielB: Takeover of Bear - - maybe worth it--thoughts? (shares cost $15 and $18)
DanielB: Takeover of Eagle - (shares cost $11 and $12) - worth it due to the consoidation from Bear)
DanielB: Takeover of Jupiter - (shares cost $50 and $55) - dunno if it was worth it... thoughts?
Toby: The main benefit of taking over jupiter was you prevented me from buying in RU for max. It slowed me down slightly.
DanielB: Toby... I had it, if I get an extra share.... you got me to lose an Eagle share in 14.3.... very nice job... game winner buying Eagle at $28
weisswurst: This game has confirmed my (limited) experience: the early leader wins. Despite all the interesting stuff that happened, Toby was leading early, played well and did not give it away
Toby: i think daniel could have taken it had things gone slightly differently.
DanielB: WW, with whom have you played Face to Face? How often? Do you play 18xx? With whom, since when?
weisswurst: I have seen it games that I won as well. It is just really difficult to catch up as soon you are about 10% behind
DanielB: Yes, going public with TSI - was a safer way to go...You getting RCC for $73 was key to bring you back into it....Had it been MM, AL, LE, I think you don't get the synergy and or capital cost higher... so many ways things coulda gone just ever so differently... exciting all the way through 14.3
DanielB: WW, sorry you fell off. I believe your HE $16 bid began your downfall. How do you see it?
weisswurst: I play 18xx, mostly in rr18xx.com, also few pbf on bgg
DanielB: rr18xx.com... interesting, no idea... what that's like... how long does a game take? Do you play with Lonnie and Helmut?
Toby: i think WW fell off when you stole android from me
weisswurst: Yes, HE bid was a misjudgement. I still do believe the oranges are worth slightly more than face value, but it depends a bit on the group.
weisswurst: And, yes this MHE deal thing and Toby letting Android taken over put me really behind
weisswurst: I took some risks, e.g. by issueing a lot with Eagle, but obviously this does not work against good opponents, and I believe it just helped Daniel coming back.
Toby: i don't think it was worth it for daniel to steal it
weisswurst: To your questions, Daniel, I have never played with Lonnie and Helmut.
DanielB: Yes, Stealing Android wasn't worth it... Stealing Bear made it better, but still bad... and it was bad for me, that Ww fell off... I wasn insanely focused on the Renfe... I would have been better, I believe, simply collecting my $12 of Renfe income for 3-4 rounds... but I got greedy when SJ came out, Ww couldn't bid against Toby, and I thought I had it...then Toby sold his 2nd share Bear, who was so nicely set up... to get SJ....which made my Renfe corp Horse, a terrible mistake
DanielB: If I had taken over Orion instead of Jupiter, it would have made my position stronger, but it wouldn't have slowed down Toby... Still, I think I had too soft of heart to not attack Ww. I think my Eagle would have been helped more by Orion than Jupiter... since I could have done it and retained 3 shares of Eagle, instead of dropping to 2 shares... I chose to drop to two and takeover Jupiter, which barely slowed down Toby.... 3 shares Eagle and 2 shares of Orion would have been better....
Toby: i agree with that analysis
weisswurst: It is all true, but you had this choice only because I created the situation by buying FRA. This was one of the occasions where I felt I was kingmaking. Objectively, I did not have a chance anymore to win, but my decisions like here , which were just made in desperation, could easily give the win to a different player.
Toby: very true, that's why i prefer higher player count games
weisswurst: But all in all, I have learnt a lot this game. You both have outplayed me, and I know I have to play very carefully against you in the future!
weisswurst: Yes, I prefer higher count as well.
DanielB: In principal, I love a higher count game. The drawback, is poor play.
DanielB: there is a certain inherent king-making function when weak players are at the table, and in a 5-6 player count game, that seems to be almost inevitable. And one of the good players can quite easily get an good leap on the other good players, through the incompetence of the lesser hands...So that's one of the reasons that I pressed start on our 3-player game. And I found it thoroughly enjoyable to have an absence of weak players at the table
DanielB: How about we float a new game out there in a few weeks time (mid-may), for a strong player only invitation: Germans and us at the moment? Benny and Ninja seem to be racking up the experience, but I don't think they are there yet... thoughts?
weisswurst: yes, a big spread in skill level is less enjoyable. A new game is fine! But I cannot promise to play as fast we did the last few days.
Toby: i'll probably pass, but i'll watch, i can't handle async games
