Eric H.: I know Paul socially. During a phone call with him I received a verbal offer to have Bear buy AKE for 8, which I firmly rejected. Even though it will slow the game down I am asking that Paul put his offer through the interface.
Eric H.: I want to assure the other players that I will not consider any offer that has not gone through chat/or the interface.
Eric H.: Actually, to save time, I will just declare that AKE is not for sale this turn.
Bear offers $7 for KME
Bear passes
Eric H.: I'm confused as to why we are still in Phase 6. I thought Bear was the only corporation, yet the game shows it is Sean's turn. Am I missing something here?

Eric H.: An Jen, any interest in buying WT?
An-Jen T: I'm not sure how that's a good idea even at $6 ....
Eric H.: $6 is WAY too low. A purchase at $6 would give your corp an immediate $8 increase in book value, not to mention at least 3 turns of guaranteed $2 synergy income. I assume you want to buy and hold BR. Cost of ownership is going to to 3 for Red and Orange this turn. If you want to keep growing the value of Horse you are going to need to add to its book value by acquiring synergized companies.
Eric H.: OOps, duh math. I meant a $5 increase in book value plus 3+ turns of $2 synergy income.
DanielB: Eric, do I know you?
DanielB: or vice versa... i'm bay area...
Eric H.: Sean, if you want to keep control of Eagle you might want to consider paying yourself a small dividend and/or issue another share so you can afford to buy another share.
Eric H.: Daniel, I don't think so. I live on the East Coast
Eric H.: Sean, if you issue another share and I take over Eagle I will immediatly have Eagle buy DR from you for $36 if you want.
Eric H.: You can keep or dump your share as you like.
DanielB: Eric, did you used to go to WBC?
Eric H.: Never been to WBC.
Eric H.: An Jen, counteroffer if I get control of Eagle and funds are available after purchasing DR from Sean, I buy BD and BME together for $10.
Eric H.: Or you buy WT for 9
An-Jen T: Eric,
Eric H.: Yes?
An-Jen T: Sorry, I got distracted... I won't commit for now, but definitely open to consideration when the time comes. BTW, I hope folks don't mind my less than optimal/expected play.
Paul B: Sean, If you're interested in selling DR to Bear. I would be happy to buy it for $36. Let me know, and I'll issue a share.
Eric H.: First game is always tough. I just hope like will enjoy the game enough to play again.

Eric H.: Sean did you want to sell DR this turn or do you want to hold it for a couple of turns?
DanielB: Boy Eagle sure seems overvalued...
Eric H.: An Jen I would sell you PR for max value. The 5 over book sale price is more than compensated by the 6 net income per turn for the next 3 turns. It's a great deal for your company.
Eric H.: Actually doing the math I think a small sweetener would be in order, namely you would sell me BD at book value as part of the deal. Sound good?
Eric H.: Close KME it is a millstone at this point.
Eric H.: Think about it. I wil wait and see what new companies pop up for auction.
DanielB: Love your communication Eric H. Epic shark game 812. Wish you were in it with us. Next one perhaps
Eric H.: Daniel, I have managed to pull defeat from the jaws of victory many times. If I don't blow this I'll promote myself up from ambitious minnow.
Eagle changes share price from $16 to $15
Paul B sells share of Eagle for $15
Paul B: ...slightly less overvalued now.
Paul B: It will be interesting to see what Eric decides to do with Eagle Corp. Does he work to rebuild shareholder value or does he burn it to the ground, filling his pockets while extracting every last dollar? I'm betting on the latter.
DanielB: PaulB, how can it be interesting? There's zero reason for him to resurrect Eagle....he will sell it SJ for 42 and WT for 9, giving him $51. Then he will pay a dividend and sell a share, two if he can. I have no understanding why Sean Coleman is holding a share of Eagle....granted, at $7 he can sell before Eric next round.
DanielB: Gentlemen, this game is over. Eric H is going to have approximately $60 of cash next turn...to buy Blues....I also will have cash to buy a blue... but not enough to catch Eric. We can apply pressure to not collaborating with Eric, and it may slow down his progress ever so slightly....
DanielB: EricH, nicely done, you don't mind if I try to promote a consortium to do unfortunately things for you do I. I am rather doubtful of the chances of success....but it's worth trying...don't you agree?
DanielB: EricH, did you catch the move you did to get ahead? I didn't...feeling dumb....

Sean Coleman: I was gaming all day - Horse want to buy DR and I will buy stock?

Eric H.: Sean, why not collect few turns of income? Your share of DR is going to generate you 3 times as much income as any stock you buy. If you want to sell and buy another company you can you that but you are choking your cash flow
Eric H.: Paul, are you up for a deal exchanging NS for PR?
Eric H.: Straight swap at book values
Eric H.: A good deal for Bear and a good deal for Eagle which you can own a piece of again as you go first next auction. don't let this sweet opportunity pass you by.
Eric H.: At Eagle it is our mission to professionally maximize market value through value added synergization of capital assets to leverage the latest Cloud-based knowledge infrastructure domains with an eye into expanding into diversified emerging market portfolios.

Bear passes
Paul B: Last turn was a disaster for me, and the only way to come close to fixing it was to get rid of KK as quickly as possible.

Horse declines to buy DSB from the Foreign Investor
Eagle buys DSB for $26 from Foreign Investor
Eric H.: An Jen you buy BY for cheap and Horse very attractive takeover target for DanielB. You don't have the cash to defend against him
Eric H.: You stock is going up to 22. He can buy shares at 22 and 26 with the $55 in cash he has next turn and strip your company
Eric H.: Actually, never mind. I see from the price chart that if Bear and Androind go up it can't be pulled off. I was just looking at your price and not the stock chart.
Eric H.: Sorry about the useless chatter.
Eagle offers $8 for BY
Paul B: Eric, I'm not sure how you see BY as being worth anything more than the minimum, but if you want to put more money in Daniel's corporate coffers I suppose I can't stop you.
Eagle buys BY for $8 from Android
Eric H.: Paul, I will be entertaining offers of PR and KME together as a set
Paul B: I'd give you $20 for the two of them.
DanielB: Paul, at this point in the game, that seems a bit rich... The next phase will hit probably in round 9, and so You'd probably only get one round of better synergies out of it, maybe 2....
DanielB: my 2c....
DanielB: with $12 in synergies, maybe it is worth it....
Paul B: $11 for one turn. Then I close KME and get $3 from PR. You're welcome to make him an offer if you don't think mine was generous enough. It might be better for me to keep the cash in the corporate treasury, so I'm not sure it's even a good deal at that price. It wouldn't break my heart if he declined.
Paul B: Daniel, Oops, I only saw your last comment. I thought you were sarcastically suggesting that I wasn't offering enough. Now I see that we're on the same page.
Paul B: Eric, I think Daniel is right. I withdraw my offer for now, but I will come back with another offer later.
Horse buys DR for $36 from Sean Coleman
Paul B: I can offer $17 for the two companies.
Eric H.: I lose 3 in book value if I take your offer of 17. If you can't do $20 then I do t think we have a deal.
Eric H.: IAn Jen can you do $20 or better for DR and KME?
Eric H.: Actually I lose 1 income and 7 book value at a price of $17 by selling both. $24 is the fair market value
Eric H.: You guys seem to think that book value isn't a factor in the sale price or stock price.
Eric H.: Paul you get $11 income and 24 in book value. Splitting the
Eric H.: Paul you get $11 income and 24 in book value. Splitting the
Eric H.: That is 35 of assets and return A sale price of 20 is
Eric H.: Stupid IPad. Sale price of 17 is ridiculous.

Paul B: I can see why a penny stock like Eagle would need to use obsolete subsidiaries with some residual name value to prop up it's lagging share price, but Bear is a blue chip growth corporation that doesn't need to use any of those sort of shenanigans.
Eric H.: I will sue you for libel and set the SEC on you to boot for attempting to defame my fine company.
Eric H.: Eagle has been upgraded to Don't Buy I'll have you know: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pbRYljkDFg
Eric H.: I want to assure all f our shareholders, particularly
Eric H.: Sean, who represents the Teamsters union that his money has never been safer and in better hands.
Eric H.: Yes, the luxury yacht and corporate jet I have been using might seem like extravances to the untrained eye but you really have to consider how much more effective I have been as CEO of Eagle because of them.
Eric H.: Why I was just telling my senior Vice President of Corporate Governance ( my nephew Morty, fine boy ) about all the shareholder value we have been unlocking with our most recent acquistions.
Paul B: Funny you should mention reporting us to the SEC. Maybe I'll mention your concerns when I meet with our regulator tonight for dinner at my private club down here in Boca. Unfortunately, he may be too tired to give your concerns much attention after all of the golf and the ... ahem.. other entertainment that we arranged.
Eric H.: My Bulgarians partners assure me that the new Black Sea sturgeon farms are STATE OF THE ART. In fact he had his two charming and hospitable twin nieces give me an extensive virtual tour of the facility in their Paris Penthouse condo.
Eric H.: I was impressed, let me tell you. Those gals knew how to give a presentation!

Eric H.: Upheaval at Eagle Corporation
Eric H.: Reported By Doris Tattler, staff reporter Bloomberg New September 20, 2017, 6:20 AM EDT
Eric H.: >>
Eric H.: Following the sensation sudden disappearance of Eagle CEO Harold "Harry" Johnson and the Board of Directors emergency elevation of Vice President of Corporate Governance Mortimer "Morty" Johnson as interim CEO, the company has been rocked by accounting iregularieties related to poor bookkeeping practices. Among the errors discovered by an Internal Audit led by the new CEO, it was discovered that the that due to a terrible bookkeeping mistake, the massive share holdings held by International Brotherhood of Teamsters pension fund, were Preferred Stock, not in fact Common Stock, as commonly believed. This fortuitious finding has allowed the Teamsters to exercise their Preferred shareholder rights to immediately divest their pension of fund all their holdings in Eagle Corporation. The new CEO, recovering from an unfortunate skiing accident that broke both of his legs has promised to get the the bottom of the accounting issues and put the company on sound financial footing. Meanwhile, panic has spread among the holder of Eagle Common stock, who face the very real prospect of substantial hits to their portfolios.

Paul B: Indictments? Honey, you must be mistaken. Are you sure they were talking about Eagle Corp? I think they were talking about a different company Cramer said it’s a great company and the CEO really seems like a nice guy. He has these great plans with Bulgarian caviar. We’ll be fine. This is just more fake news, Honey.

Paul B: An Jen, I'll give you $28 for DR
Eric H.: Paul I will sell PR for $14 That's 5 under book and 6 synergy income which keeps your oranges afloat and props up your stock after you close your Reds. I lose 5 book and 2 synergy income.
Eric H.: Or I might consider selling BY/WT for min value to An-Jen.
Paul B: Eric, assuming An-Jen doesn't take my deal - and I don't expect him to - you have a deal.
Paul B: An-Jen, assuming you don't want to part with DR do you have any interest in selling OL for the minimum?
Eric H.: Paul, if An-Jen agrees to sell OL the price of PR goes up by 1.
Paul B: Eric, Would you mind including KME? I assume you only plan to close it.
Eric H.: I would consider selling KME and PR together for $17, $18 in An-Jen agrees to sell you OL.
Eric H.: If
Paul B: You seriously want to try to get $18 for two companies that you need to close? That, my friend, is called chutzpah!
Paul B: I'd be happy to turn the deal around. You can have all of my reds and oranges for the minimum ($29 total) if you care to be the slumlord instead of me being it.
Eric H.: I was ging to sell you PR for $14 and I can't legally sell you KME for less than $3. So if you don't like the deal then just buy PR and I'll just close KME. I am not giving you a discount on PR because I need to unload KME.
Paul B: Okay, I'll throw in another $1. $15 for the pair
Eric H.: Don't buy PR, just operate at a $6 loss per turn to keep your oranges afloat this turn. I'll just shut down KME and operate at a $1 loss this turn, no biggie. In fact I will do that. You need this deal and I don't.
Eric H.: Actually it is a $5 loss for me, not $1, I'll still suck it up because you get way more out of the deal than I do.
Eric H.: An Jen, let's discuss BY and WT. as a pair.
Eric H.: $15 for both.
Paul B: Fine, I'll take the deal. PR for $14, done.
Eric H.: Not den. Deal is off the table.
Eric H.: It is better for me to get rid of two oranges than just one.

Eric H.: An-Jen, the synergy between the 2 is worth an extra dollar.
Eric H.: The deal will increase your companies book value by $9 and give you $6 in synergy inco,e, so I don't think that $15 is unreasonable. Holding these companies for town turns only costs me $6 with no loss in book value.
Eric H.: Sorry, loss of $12
Eric H.: I lose $12 and you gain $25 in two turns. Really I am glad you guys are haggling because it lets me see that my offers are too generous.
Eric H.: You need to close the gap for this offer.
Eric H.: Sorry it's late and I can't add. The correct numbers are $21 value to you versus $12 to me, selling versus not selling.
Eric H.: That's I difference of $9 in value here.
Eric H.: $19 is really the fair value but I would be willing to discount down to $17. Otherwise I'll just hold on to them until the end of the game and close them in the last turn.
Eric H.: Paul, holding on to PR only costs me $6 for two turns. Selling it to you at book value nets you 10 synergy income per turn and makes it it worth keeping all your Reds and props up your company. It is conservatively worth at least $20 for the next two turns
Eric H.: Assuming sale at book that is a $14 gap in value between me holding and you buying. Having that gap and adding it to book clay means that Fair price for PR is max value $36.
Eric H.: Sorry, halving the gap , I can't spell now on this IPAD
Eric H.: Man I.need to go to bed. Fair value is book + 7 which exceeds the max blue of $24.
Eric H.: Stupid autocorrect. Max value $24.
Eric H.: So offers for my companies need to be fair or I will just hold on to them. I see what you guys offer.

Paul B: So there I am on the 14th green at Pebble Beach. You know the hole, it’s the long par 4 with the dogleg right and that big oak. Anway, one of my minions brings me my cell and says it’s Morty Johnson at Eagle Corp. Well, the 3 CEOs I’m playing with are all shaking their heads as their way of saying, don’t take the call. You know, with all those indictments a lot of guys wouldn’t want to be associated with you right now. But I took the call. You offered me PR for $14 and I said, “Yes I’ll do it. You’re in a bind, I’ll help you out.” And I’ll tell you, after that my round went into the crapper: double bogey, double bogey, bogey, triple bogey. So, I’m in the clubhouse – still steaming from my ruined golf game and I remember that you’ve got that KME Company in the middle of liquidation. They’ve got a patent or two that would make things easier for us, so I decide to call you back and see if you’ll throw it in as sort of a thank you for a quick painless negotiation on PR. “Why wouldn’t he throw it in, I think, it’s a turd he’s in the process of scraping off his shoe into the rubbish bin.” So, I call you back and you have the nerve to renege and tell me the deal for PR is off????!!!!!

Paul B: Now I'm really confused. There was the following exchange just a short time ago, "An-Jen T: Eric, I think 14 is a dec Eric H.: 15 is the price. 13 is the MINIMUM price for both companies and we both know that getting them together is worth another $4 in synergy income over two turns."
Paul B: Of course this was only after: "Eric H.: Paul I will sell PR for $14 That's 5 under book and 6 synergy income which keeps your oranges afloat and props up your stock after you close your Reds. I lose 5 book and 2 synergy income."
Paul B: I started to negotiate with An-Jen for the purchase of OL because I thought our deal for PR was closed.
Paul B: It was only my negotiation with An-Jen that got you thinking, "Hmm maybe PR isn't the piece of s**t I thought it was."
Paul B: Never mind about the first part. I see now that An-Jen was talking about your possible BY?WT deal.

DanielB: Fascinating. No corps going away. Great for green owners.
An-Jen T: Paul, so perhaps you can convince me why that might make sense. As I see it right now, the best I can do is sell BR to Horse at the right time when I have a good shot at getting a Purple company. If I buy all of your orange, even at minimum, that will leave Horse with little cash, and a cash flow of 8
DanielB: An Jen. Well analyzed
Paul B: Actually, I was thinking to include KK, which would give you a cash flow of 12 and skyrocket your book value, but now it looks to me like the only way it could work for both of us would be KK, my 4 oranges and MHE for $51. This would give you $12 income/turn and give you enough book value that your stock would have upward momentum into the 30s

Eric H.: And what precisely could I have done to keep you from getting it at $70 this turn?
An-Jen T: Eric, so I would have thought it'd be in your interest to sell one of your companies to Eagle last turn to generate cash as opposed to forming a new corp this turn. But obviously I don't quite understand the subtleties of the end game.
An-Jen T: I'm sure I am missing something, but why exactly would one want to form corps from scratch near the end of the game?
Eric H.: Eagle did not have enough cash to fully buy either of my private companies at max price.
Eric H.: Eagle did not have enough cash to buy either of my private companies for max price. Eagle only exists not for the purposes of being plundered.
Eric H.: In order to plunder a corporation you need another corporation. I will start plundering Eagle this turn. By the end of the turn Eagle will not be worth taking over by anyone else.
Eric H.: BTW, any interest in selling HE OR BD ( not both) for minimum value this turn?
An-Jen T: I'm open to selling all three of Horse's current companies to the highest bidder, as it were....
DanielB: Eric, if you go public with SJ at like $26 or $28, you then coulda bought in BSR at $52 or $56, and be in fat city for cash....I'm totally confused about the late SJ offering at $34, but hey, I'm very excited to see your plan! :)
DanielB: $54
Eric H.: Well, my plan may not work. You have to know that this is my second game of Rolling Stock in like 6 years. I am relearning a lot of stuff here.
Eric H.: An Jen. A corporation has to have a minimum of 1 company and you can't use the money from the sale of a company on the same turn you sold it.
Eric H.: Having sa did that I would consider buying DR Or HE for the minimum. I can't afford to buy more than one company.
Eric H.: Having said that. Stupid IPad keyboard.

Paul B: Sean, the foriegn investor saves up to but new companies, but saving up is a slow way to go about it. When a player buys one of his companies it allows the foreign investor to get right back in the market. He buys a new company - generally increases his income - and puts everyone closer to higher costs of ownership.
Paul B: Sometimes this is advantageous. When you have new companies and everyone else has old tech you want to do everything you can to speed up the game. Sometimes it can't be avoided - you really need the company that he has. And, sometimes its tempting, but when you consider the negative impact it isn't worth it.
Eric H.: Sean, this games in NOT about building up profitable corporations. It is about exploiting the the gullible shareholders that fund the company when it is floated in in an IPO or when aiddtional share are issued.
Eric H.: Basically this games is about getting rich using OTHER PEOPLES MONEY. Corporations are meant to be exploited. This is what is happening with Eagle.
Paul B: Eric, I think that is a slightly simplistic view. There are many different ways to win this game. Some work as you suggest. Some work as Daniel suggests. Others involve creating healthy corporations and making them prosper. There are other ways to win that I still don't fully understand. Beyond these overall strategies, speeding up and slowing down the game are tactics that are important for every player to understand.

Eric H.: I see that now. It needs two turns to pay off but there is no downside.

Eric H.: Looking over my position it is clear that Daniel will win this one. I tried some stuff but got my timing wrong. In retrospect I should have squeezed Eagle harder the turn I took it over and used the cash to buy a Blue company.

Eric H.: Because I don't need all the cash now and I would like to keep my share prices going up.
Paul B: I'm with Daniel on this. It seems like $12 in your pocket is worth much more than $3x2 increase in share price.
Eric H.: $12 to do what with?
Eric H.: A $6 dollar yield for giving up $12 I wont be using now seems to be a good deal to me.
Eric H.: An-Jen I am curious about your thoughts about my decision.
Paul B: The way I see it is that every $1 in your personal treasury is one victory point. Since you own 2 of the 4 outstanding shares of the Ship Corporation, every $1 in their corporate treasury is worth 1/2 of a victory point. Depending on where the share price ends relative to the value of the corporation, every $1 in the corporate treasury may be worth less than 1/2 victory point at the end.
Eric H.: I get the full value of my shares as full victory points so I don't follow your logic. You own comment referred to an increase in my share price not the value of my corporations treasury.
Eric H.: The game is not yet over. It is entirely possible to extract money out of corporate treasury LATER.
DanielB: Eric, your limiting your investment choices by not putting the cash in hand....I agree that at times, absolutely, your corp needs the cash. Not sure why that's the case now... ]
DanielB: top 4 corps, $0 synergies... Wow, what a dearth in synergies...
Eric H.: With the price on companies at $60 and above I don't see how I am limiting myself. Its not like I can buy a company two turns in a row. Better to pump up stock prices before I issue the needed share to keep the money pump going.

Eric H.: An Jen, since Horse is dying anyway, why not buy a share of Ship and and have Horse overpay to buy something from Ship. You will make more money off of the ship share jump than you will be losing off of Horse.
Eric H.: Think about it next round (which may be the final round).
An-Jen T: Possibly, btw, does the game end on the turn that the last company is bought or is it the turn after? Ignoring the other ways a game may end....
Paul B: Hate to throw flies in perfectly good ointment, but Horse doesn't have enough money to overpay for any of Ship Corps properties.
Paul B: Never mind, I guess $45 for BSR would be an "overpayment."
Paul B: I think this game actually has 2 more turns. I don't see how anyone can generate enough cash to buy RU next turn.
Paul B: Re-reading the rules, it looks like the game ends 1 turn after the last company is sold. In phase 10 there is a check to see if there are any available companies. If not, the game ends after the next full turn (ignoring other ways the game can end). So, I guess that might mean 3 more turns!
DanielB: Paul. That’s correct. The $16 maintainance is only the last round. But if ru is boutght in 14.3. Then we will have 15 rounds

Eric H.: Actually, I'll do it. Sell me SX for $8 first and then Ill sell you DSB for $10. I am going to buy a share of Bear as my first action. I am more likely to make money off of my share of Bear.

Eric H.: Looking at the cash/stock positions now, either Paul or Daniel is goint to snap up the remaining Purple next stock buy phase. Given the synergy RU has with RCC/TSI I expect a bidding was for this purple
Eric H.: Doh, just remembered dividends happen AFTER income.
Eric H.: So, that means that two turns from now bidding for RU will be even fiercer since more people will have the acccess to the capital to buy it.
Eric H.: Paul I want some assurance that you will not be selling of a share of Bear AFTER I buy my share. That would put me in a very bad position of being stuck with Bear Corp next turn since I would go aftey you.
Eric H.: after
Paul B: If you buy a share of Bear you will be CEO. I can't stay with Bear if there is another shareholder since I would have the opportunity to get a purple which I can't turn down. Not taking the opportunity to purchase a purple when I can would be counter to trying to maximize my result. I disagree with the "stuck with" verbiage since Bear corp will go to $34 once you buy SX and sell MS as discussed. I would be willing to sell 1st, then buy, then sell. Owning Bear for a net outlay of $31 would give you the ammunition you need to get double jumps the next two turns from Orion and Ship.
Eric H.: We had a deal that you would buy Bear and you have reneged. I am pissed.
Eric H.: Next turn you can dump your Bear share and have $97. Daniel WILL dump his share of TSI and he will have $99. He WILL outbid you because RU synergizes with TSI just as well as RCC and it is worth 41 income.
Eric H.: Daniel, would you be interested in selling OPC for an ATTRACTIVE cash price to Ship corp? That should give you enough cash to pay the dividends to buy RU? You are going to win anyway but I will be damned if I am going to let Paul get ahead of me.
Paul B: Eric, I know that your frustrated, but if you look clearly you will see that owning Bear for $31 is a stupendous result for you. You will get double jumps from both Orion and Ship and pay yourself dividends from these two. Orion will be at $90 in 2 turn with dividend payouts
Paul B: Yes, the share price of Bear will drop, but if you consider the ROI as a whole you could not possibly find a better use for $31
Paul B: How are you planning to grow Orion? Just adding DSB this turn gives you a double jump. Moving HR and NS next turn gives you a further double jump. If you move HR this turn you can actually pay dividends and still jump. Move DR and KK to Ship for Double jumps plus dividends. Also, it will help you to push the cash toward Orion where your dividends are more efficient.
Eric H.: Paul, you reneged on a deal. Bear is DEAD. There is no way to extract more $34 (not 31 with you BS share valuation) out of it. It will not go up after I buy it and it will 100% drop 3 share levels at the end of the game.
Eric H.: That means I need to extract more than $50 to make a profit because it. And I hand you a synergized Purple for breaking a deal. No thanks. I used Eagle to give you FREE equity and am NOT getting the share bump you promised e.
Eric H.: Daniel can buy RU outright without having to bid against you if he offers me an attractive price to buy OPC.
Paul B: Your math makes no sense. Bear is not going to $0. The worst case scenario for Bear Shares are that you squeeze every drop out of the corporation and it drops to $14. The question is, what do you get for the $17 of lost shareholder value? If it gets you $30 of growth from Orion and $13 of growth from Ship and a bunch of dividends thrown in then I'd say it's a pretty sweet deal. If you read my comments above you'd see that I offered to sell 1st (before you buy a share so that you pay $31 not $34.
Paul B: Also, I never promised you a Bear Corp rose garden. I offered you a deal. You countered with a deal that was better for me and said you wanted to buy into Bear. Of course I accepted. The possibility of managing Bear is FAR better for you than being a silent partner. You have one turn to move out the companies and one turn to move out the cash. The cash goes to Orion where you get $.50 on the dollar.
Eric H.: Paul, n matter how you spin it, you reneged on a deal. As it turns out even if you kept your end of the deal there are better things I can than fund your acquisition
Eric H.: Can do than fund your acquisition of a synergiezed Purple company that would net you $67 in the next two turns and knock me out of second place. GOOD DAY TO YOU SIR!
Paul B: I did say that I was planning to buy a share of Bear, but that wasn't part of the deal. If either of us had truly considered that far in advance we would have discussed the possibilities and you wouldn't have felt it necessary to confirm that I wouldn't dump shares. If I had wanted to screw you I'd have screwed you AFTER you bought a share and/or I'd have taken DSB for $10 as you offered.
Paul B: All that having been said I'm still convinced that your best option is to acquire Bear. I haven't done all the math to see if it leaves you ahead of me. I was mapping out all of the moves that you could make if you owned Bear, and before I hit send I kept thinking of new ways to improve even further on your result.
Eric H.: I am not discussingt his anymore.
Eric H.: this
Eric H.: Paul, why dont we ask Toby to switch out accounts in this game. I'll take over your position and you take over mine with the condition that you buy Bear as the first action on the auction phase. You can prove to me how smart you are and how awesome your plan is.
Eric H.: Actually, no. I am just going to play this out with my way. I am ahead of you and if your advice was worth anything you would be ahead of me. I am plan on finishing in 2nd place. See you at the finish line.
Eric H.: Guys, please don't be alarmed by the tone of my chat with Paul. My annoyance with him is strictly "in game" and I feel free to give it its full vent because we are good friends who have gamed together.a LONG time.
DanielB: Eric. Thanks. That’s good to know
DanielB: Eric. I agree one should never give 2nd place away. But I have a bone to pick with you. You had this game in the bag. I couldn’t figure out how I’d fallen so far behind. Then you didn’t float right in rounds 7-8-9-10. We can definitely go again if you like
Eric H.: I thought a straight victory by climbing the tech tree fast was kind of boring. I wanted to explore some alternative strategies. It didn't work out but I have learned a LOT by playing it through.
DanielB: I’ve played your strategy. It can work. It requires more finesse. And more brutal manipulation. Interlopers hurt instead of helping. Mostly.
DanielB: Eric. As soon as you had two greens I would have floated one and had it but the other. Then you can consolidate share although it’s almost always for efficient to float a new Corp. You get your shares at par and all the issues stick surveys as an appreciation slingshot in the late game if it becomes the lead company
DanielB: “Issued stock(ipo) serves as a ...
Paul B: Sean????????????
Eric H.: The first company I could have floated was BSR, the problem was I thought it was too damn expensive to float so I waited. I having to pay money to float 4 share because the only way
Eric H.: to get the money back is to dump one of your issued shares and risk losing control.
Eric H.: I hate having tp pay money to issue 4 shares.
DanielB: Sean, ready to move into the end game?
DanielB: Paul, Want to sell RCC for max next turn?
Eric H.: Why would Paul sell RCC for the Max? It only makes sense if he can earn more on the cash than by holding it. That move only makes sense for the last turn of the game when he loses $9 off of RCC.
Paul B: Eric, Even when cost of ownership is $16, it is only for reds, oranges, yellows and greens.
Paul B: Daniel, I think I'll hold onto it.
Eric H.: OK, that makes a bit more sense now.
Eric H.: Makes my decision to not climb the tech tree as fast as possible even worse now.
DanielB: well, that extra $83 can spark some wild stock market action... that'd be one reason...if you think you can do something with such cash....and if it just means your buying another purple, your still about $5-$13 ahead...it requires a bit of advanced planning on my part, so let me know if you change your mind Paul

Eric H.: An Jen why didn't you work with someone to gut Horse? $4 in dividends is a pretty crappy return for all those assets. I would happily bought Horse to gut it and you could have bought a share of Ship
Eric H.: You may be buying Ship anyway but it would have been worth so much more after gutting Horse.
Paul B: If he was going to do that it would have made far more sense to do it with Saturn Corp given that he already owned a share; however, there is a question of what is the ethical responsibility when you can't win. Perhaps he decided that it was not right to give the likely victor a push over the finish line..

Eric H.: Well thats what deals are for. He could have extracted some sort of concession from the player that owned the corp that gutted Horse. Assuming that player kept his WORD.
An-Jen T: Part of it was a lot maneuvering for, at least from my perspective, relatively little gain. At the time I bought Saturn, it was the only corp that was clearly under valued and I had a strong feeling that Daniel was going to push price up with or without my help. I was actually hoping to dump my share of Horse but Sean beat me to it. And I've now squeezed $9 in dividend out of Horse. While it might all turn out to be pointless, you never know when you need that extra $....
Eric H.: Horse had enough value to me because I controlled a corporation that I would have happily taken it over and gutted it. You would have gotten your $12 back out of it and put the cask to better use.
Eric H.: cash
An-Jen T: Not that simple. At the time I got rid of the assets, I was trying to accumulate enough cash so that Horse could buy my purple near max. But the change in ownership cost came a turn earlier than I had hoped. At that point there was nothing to gut, as it were....
Eric H.: Horse would have been worth gutting UNTIL you paid your last dividend out. 5/6ths of the cash went to the share-holding (chumps) public. I would have bought Horse from you. The cash could have been put into one of my corps and paid out as dividends AFTER you and I bought more shares.
Eric H.: It did not have to be me (though I wish it was). You could have worked with the owner of any other corporation to gut Horse. Its just that the corporations with the fewest issues shares are best postiioned to pay out lucrative dividends.

Eric H.: Taking into account the share jump (stupid auto-correct)
Eric H.: That's '$32 over two turn purple synergy bonus for RU is nothing to be sneezed at. I wonder if Daniel will contest Paul?
Eric H.: Never mind, Paul will raise the money before Daniel.
Paul B: Sean, Actually the idea that Eric proposed made far more sense than doubling down on a dying Jupiter Corp. At this point, the only thing that Jupiter is good for is dismantling. I don't know what your current plan is, but whatever it is you might want to reconsider.
Eric H.: Paul, now that you are guaranteed the Purple and cost of ownership is jumping it's too late for ship to gut Jupiter. Sean's best move is to hold on to the $20. Only Companies with Purple have a ch ace of appreciating
Eric H.: And Sean can't afford them

Eric H.: An_Jen, let talk about a deal. If I buy Horse and you dump Horse on me you will have just enough money to but the Purple. What BINDING deal can you offer me that would make it worth my while?
Eric H.: If you buy the Purple, buying and holing Horse will cost me $5 by the end of the game. So any deal you offer me would have to net me more than the $5 I will be losing by buying Horse.
An-Jen T: Eric, I'm willing to do it, but I am not sure exactly how you would like me to compensate you either later this turn or next.
Eric H.: Nex turn you could commit to buying some overvalued stock. You would have $50 to do so if you get the purple.
Eric H.: Deal?
An-Jen T: How about my buying a share of one of your corps next turn of your choosing? And if necessary, perhaps buy Horse back from you (which would save you $2, I think).
Eric H.: Done!
Eric H.: Go ahead and pass. I will buy Horse on my turn.
An-Jen T: Deal.
An-Jen T: Eric, since I need to pass instead of doing what I was planning to do, please confirm again that we are in agreement.
An-Jen T: Got it.
An-Jen T passes
Eric H.: Just want to make sure. The deal is you will buy a share of my choosing of one of my corps and buying back Horse.
Paul B: Eric, I think you've succeeded in cementing 4th place for yourself.
Eric H.: OK Paul, whatever you say.
Eric H.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWdd6_ZxX8c
Paul B: :-)
DanielB: An Jen t. If you buy star at $50 now I can promise $16 if dividend and full dividends all the way and ending price of $90 or $100.
DanielB: Sean Coleman, I can offer you the same deal. U can sell for $18,$16,$14 which neta you $48 plus $2 cash for $50. It will help your end score a lot
Eric H.: An Jen has already agreed to a deal with me.
DanielB: Eric, mine isn't a deal, it's simply an opportunity. And probably a better one... I'll try to ferret out what your deal with An Jen is, it's a bit hard to figure...
DanielB: ah yes, no bueno... my deal is still better... better return than a purple.... and for Sean much better, if he is stillalive....
Paul B: Sean, A corporation isn't like a boat. Just because you're CEO doesn't mean that you need to go down with the ship. I'm not suggesting that you help Daniel , but this is a stress-free opportunity to do your best at score maximization.
Eric H.: Sean, when the Purple is bought by An-Jen, we get ne more turn. I doubt Daniel can get Star to $90 in just one turn. Maybe $73
Eric H.: Or even $81
Eric H.: Still $81 is better than the $52 you get riding Jupiter down to $13. The right move is to take Daniel's offer.
DanielB: Of course the $90 and $100 were for two turns in an hen does buy star... massive dividends
An-Jen T: I was actually planning to buy star before Eric offered his deal. I will go through with it as discussed.
Jupiter changes share price from $20 to $18
Sean Coleman sells share of Jupiter for $18
DanielB: I’m sad. Star was going to have such a mass income and run with an extra round and probably RU.
DanielB: An-Jen. I will offer you full price for RU just the same right away and you can then pick up maybe two shares of star next turn
DanielB passes
Horse changes share price from $9 to $10
Eric H. buys share of Horse for $10
Eric H.: Daniel congrats on your upcoming takeover of Jupiter (and its assets) at the bargain basement price Sean is driving it down to. Not only are you getting Sean to drive up Stars price, you are going to aquire almost $49 in transferable assets for like $16. Looks like you really made out here.
Eric H.: Sean, hold on to your last share of Jupiter. Don't just dump it if someone else buys it. Extract concessions for that last share. Once you sell down Jupiter its assets become way undervalued. Not so valueable that people would be willing to buy TWO shares for a hostile take-over but very valuable if it can be controlled with one share. Keep your control and extract more concessions for selling off E and FS for cheap.
Eric H.: Holding on two that last share will cost you maybe $4 but you control $49 in transferable book value. Don't ust give it away.

Eric H.: An, Jen you will shares
Eric H.: never mind
Eric H.: An Jen I am holding you to our deal. You have agreed to buy a share of the company of my choosing. That mean you have to have the cash to do so. If that mean you also cannot afford a share of Star that is not my problem.
Eric H.: means
Eric H.: You are also obligated to buy back Horse
An-Jen T: If he buys RU that is not going to be a problem ....

Paul B: Sean, at this point in the game if you can't play regularly maybe you could auto-pass. We've been at this since August - the other game since June - and every time it gets to you its like 3 days. I can't speak for anyone else, but you're certainly reducing my enjoyment of this game.

Eric H.: Sean would you consider selling E and FS together for the minimum? You should be able to squeeze a little dividend out of the cash.
Ship passes
Saturn passes
Eric H.: It would case Jupiter to drop 1 more dollar but the 4 dollar dividend would be a net gain of 3 for you. If you buy back another share of Jupiter you could bolster the stock price and get another share's dividends. I believe that would net you $5.
Eric H.: Put that remaining $16 you have to work.

DanielB: An hen. Go public. Sell a share. Buy two shares of Star
DanielB: Never mind. Non sense. You have enough for two shares already if available unless 73 and 81. Which seems not great.
Eric H.: Paul will be goosing his own share price and An-Jen buys last. There will be no bargains for Star. The first share he buys will be $60. He loses money on all his shares if he goes public and dumps 1 to buy another share of Star, A bad deal though for An-Jen but great for Daniel.
An-Jen T: We'll see what comes around ..... I'm likely to buy one share assuming it is available.
MM passes
-- Round: 14 Phase: 3 (Auctions And Share Trading) --
Eric H.: Sean, do we have a deal to have Jupiter sell off E and FS for cash? I know you are not in great shape this game but the only way to win this game is to make deals. You can exract more value out Jupiter via a final divend payment rather than riding it down.
Eric H.: extract

Eric H.: Well, I was way too generous with An-Jen. I really needed the game to end sooner or the Gap would have widened even more. I was hoping I could stay out in front of Paul by cutting the deal with An-Jen but it backfired in a major way, I should have insisted on a No Sale clause for the Purple I helped him get, Lesson learned.
An-Jen T passes
Eric H.: An-Jen you are supposed to buy Horse and Ship according to the terms of our deal. I am confused as to why you are passing.
An-Jen T: I was waiting for you to tell me which to buy. Did not realize you had specified ship. must have missed it.
An-Jen T: I will ask Toby to roll it back.
An-Jen T: BTW, I do have one question, given horse's state am I correct to assume it will go bankrupt no matter what?
Eric H.: Once you bought Star that only leaves Ship. That is my fault since I priced you out of Orion. Horse will only drop twice to $5. It will not go bankrupt. I could have set it up to do so by issuing a share but I am not that kind of Kerk.
Eric H.: We don't need a rollback. Just don't pass again.
Eric H.: Jerk not Kerk
Eric H.: I would have rather had you buy Orion INSTEAD of Star but that would require a Big rollback and I am not sure the other players want to go through all that.
Eric H.: Sean, please use auto-pass unless you plan to empty shares. It will help speed things up.
DanielB: Sweet. star will get to $90
An-Jen T: are you sure about that? since horse only has $3 and income is -4 ...
Eric H.: Damn, I didn't factor in the new cost of ownership when I transferred assets. I only looked the the projected share drop, forgot about the income. looks like I miscalculated. It was not my intention to screw you.
Eric H.: I am not really sure what the correct thing to do here is. You got a VERY good deal by getting RU and the Ship stock you will be buying is not overvalued I don't really benefit much from your purchase.
Eric H.: All in all your eating Horse sort of balances a VERY lopsided deal even though I swear I did not mean to drive Horse to bankruptcy..
An-Jen T: I kind of thought you did that deliberately which in my eyes violated the spirit of the deal, but I will go through with the purchase.
An-Jen T: In hindsight I think I should have stuck to my original plan. Daniel would have gotten an even bigger lead but I might have ended in second place ....
Sean Coleman passes
Eric H.: If you be
Eric H.: If you believe I did it on purpose I will not hold you to buying Horse. I did plunder Horse but I did not mean to kill it. It makes no difference to me at this point whether I finish in 3rd place or 4th place.
Eric H.: Or maybe Toby can increase Horses treasury by 1 and reduce Ships by 1. Ship is overvalued so it should make no difference. That would require agreement rom the other players
Eric H.: This plan is what gave Daniel the biggest lead Selling RU to him, which I really did not consider to be in the spirit of the agreement is what sent his stock through the stratosphere. It gave Star 65 additional income per turn
An-Jen T: doesn't matter I will buy horse when it gets back to me
Eric H.: Lets see if Toby can transfer 1 dollar from Ship to Horse. I really did not intend for Horse to go under.
Eric H.: I have put in the request with Toby.
Eric H.: Toby says it is too complicated to do.

He had expressed interest previously, but that was several months ago when we were just getting started in the two games that we're playing. I know that we're almost done, but I'd like to get at least one entirely wrapped before we start a new one.
Ship offers $22 for E
Orion offers $19 for FS
Ship offers $19 for FS
Orion offers $22 for E
Eric H.: Sean, if you don't mind, could you accept the offer of Orion-22-E and Ship-19-FS INSTEAD OF Ship-22-E and Orion-19-FS? Those are the offers I actailly wanted to make.
Eric H.: If Jupiter does not sell off its companies it will go bankrupt and you will lose $5.
Eric H.: When you pay your Jupiter dividend, make sure you leave $14 in the treasury.
Ship buys E for $22 from Jupiter
Sean Coleman: Eric - you dont have money for Ship - I will hold until you tell me what to do
Paul B: Given how many screw ups we (Eric mostly but me, too) have had I have to say I saw this coming. Sean, I think Eric wanted you to accept the offer from Orion to buy E, and wanted you to accept the offer from Ship to buy FS. Hopefully he won't want a roll back. I don't think this game will ever end.
Paul B: Sean, you'll have to excuse Eric. As CEO of a highly prof... er... large corporation like Orion Corp, Eric focuses on high level corporate negotiations and generally leaves the calculations to underlings. You see, Eric was one of the first “Apprentices” and learned his deal-making from the master. In fact, Eric has surpassed his mentor in “The Art of The Deal.” Unfortunately, like The Donald Eric has not quite mastered, “The Art of the Math.” So here’s a quick translation: If you do the deal that Eric has proposed (and to which you agreed) you will save Jupiter Corp. You will lose $2 of share price, but not the full $16 of share price that you would lose if you do nothing and Jupiter goes bankrupt. Jupiter would end the deal with $41. After the income phase, you will have $31 which will allow you to pay $5/share of dividends. You will not need to budget to pay your negative income because dividends come after income. (Disclaimer: Your mileage may vary. You should double check all calculations by doing your own math. Eric is not actually a disciple of The Donald.)
Sean Coleman: I am really sorry for mixing up the two - I had 4 offers and I swore I was being careful - sorry
Eric H.: Sean, just accept the offer from Orion. I screwed up and it cost me $4. On top of the Horse fiasco nothing really matters any more.
