Amos Cai: I live in Singapore. So I'm about 12-16 hours difference from you guys
Amos Cai: And this is my first ever game. Read the rules but sorry if I mess things up
Amos Cai: Was sleeping 6 hours ago when the notification came through for my turn
Talbatross: all good
DanielB: Amos, that's awesome. Welcome aboard. be careful on overpaying... usually only good for synergy monsters (DR), MS marginally qualifies, but in this situation, it does qualify! Are you an experienced 18xx player?
DanielB: Talb, you got my contact info?
Talbatross: lemme check, I don't think so. I can probably hit up Toby for it.
Talbatross: I think I found your email, sent you a message

Patrick McGregor bids $15 for HE
DanielB: I think it'll kill you. I had problem With $8. If you were sure I'd sell you mhe it starts to be better. Amos. Overpaying for companies is the number one way players take them selves out of a game.
DanielB: Of course. Since I believ talb has dig himself a hole I'm less likely to shoot against him. So that should mitigate the damage...
DanielB: Wow. He is really good for Patrick. I think he made a great bid.

Talbatross: If you want to start up MS, I'll sell you BPM and BSE Amos
Talbatross: well, I'll consider it strongly :)
Amos Cai forms corporation Eagle with MS at $14 - 4 shares issued.
Amos Cai: I'm completely unsure about the corporation powers. well, hopefully I'm learning many things through this game.
Amos Cai: Thanks btw, I imagine my first few games might be painful for other players and you guys are just the start of my learning curve
DanielB: you can always ask us in advance Amos! typically Saturn and Jupiter are taken early. But by taking Eagle, you have two more shares you can issue. and it's a pretty strong company....and you are hugely capitalized.... so you can become a monster company quickly...
Amos Cai: Thanks Daniel! Great to know.
DanielB: i'd recommend to you to buy companies from us aggressively to get your income UP so you can dividend to yourself to get more shares... it's a tough balancing act. For my part, if you tell me now, I will resist starting a company if you have any offers for my MHE immediately, and WT...
Amos Cai: This is the tough part isn't it. Getting help from you guys yet trying to buy companies from you guys. What would be a fair value/offer for me to make? Obviously I'll be interesting in your MHE and Talb's BPM and BSE.
DanielB: well, I have reasons to float my own company, and MHE is the leading red, so I certainly want $10 for MHE in round 3 or $9 in round 4. I'll sell you WT for $14 Round 4. Stars are very valuable for moving stock prices up...
Amos Cai: MHE $10 Round 3?
HE passes
DanielB: Sure. Amos. We can do that!
DanielB forms corporation Saturn with WT at $12 - 2 shares issued.

Talbatross: I'll sell you PR too Amos, we should discuss details.
Amos Cai: Morning. Yes. Details. So is there a group discount for eagle buying all your companies? Rather, how much are you looking for for each.
Talbatross: obviously I would prefer max for each but I'm a little open I guess. That is still a good deal for you since you will get like 6 syneriges. Your corp will be a monster.
Amos Cai: I believe I won't have the money for PR at max if I buy BPM BSE and MHE from Daniel.
DanielB: Seems he could wait a round for PR sale...

Talbatross: you're welcome :D
Eagle offers $9 for BPM
Talbatross: I guess before I accept offers, what's your order of operations Amos ?
Amos Cai: So am I bound to buy MHE in round 3 for $10, Daniel? I feel inclined to purchase PR this round if I can.
Talbatross: buying MHE just empowrs him to buy a yellow
Talbatross: will weaken all the reds, which he he has less of then the rest of us.
Amos Cai: what do you mean by order of operations? Sorry if I'm asking silly questions. I'm reading and re-reading the two rulebook/player guides.
DanielB: That's fine. Buy it next turn
DanielB: Patrick will buys company anyway probably however
Eagle offers $25 for PR
Eagle buys PR for $25 from Talbatross
Talbatross: sorry, just meant the order in which you wanted to buy things this round

Talbatross: it has synergies with MS PR and BPM
Eagle offers $2 for BSE
DanielB: Talb. Ya talked your way into a nice profit with PR
Amos Cai: Yeah I figured. It's my first game so I'm an impressionable first purchaser of stocks/companies
Bear buys HE for $18 from Patrick McGregor
Bear buys BME for $2 from Patrick McGregor
Bear passes
DanielB: I mentioned that, because $23 or $24 seems like a fair price, so Talb should accept your low ball offer for BSE....which is worth a lot to Eagle

DanielB: Patrick. Was your intention to pick up the BD from foreign investor?
DanielB: Patrick. Would you consider selling me the Bme for $2 next round
DanielB: Guys. I am going to turn in for the night. Me floating with the mhe. Isn't uninteresting... hence some gunboat diplomacy...
DanielB: We got a good game going here!
DanielB: Patrick?
DanielB: Anyone planning on buying a good share (bear/eagle for $18?
Talbatross: well as soon as COO goes up, Bear is not as happy, Eagle and Saturn still have good prospects. bear needs a bit of a facelift.
Talbatross: doesn't help that Bear also has only 1 possible Yellow synergy in DR
Talbatross: actually I forgot about bear's lack of COO, so I guess all is well
Talbatross: I guess Eagle has a strong interest in MHE
Talbatross: and Bear in BD
Talbatross: I may buy a share of something
DanielB: Talb... is that a commitment?
DanielB: Patrick, your the guy I'm trying to hear from....
DanielB forms corporation Orion with MHE at $11 - 2 shares issued.
-- Round: 4 Phase: 1 (Auctions And Share Trading) --
DanielB: this seems interesting...
DanielB: Amos - I will sell you MHE once I can get a replacement company (like BME, or a yellow)....I hope you don't feel that's me breaking a promise. You pushed me off to round 4 - I'm pushing you off to round 5 in all liklihood, unless someone will sell....
DanielB: I've never tried this managing of 2 corps early on in a Version 2 RS game.... seems like it will be interesting given the other dynamics...and I was stuck at $16. not enough to buy a share (i should have dividended myself $2, but I didn't know Bear would issue, and could have sat on $18 with nothing to buy....
DanielB: northern german strategies are much weaker in this game due to the conspicuous absence of SX and OL (Saxony and Oldenburg).... making southern strategies (SBB/SNCF/BY/BD), relatively stronger. Case in Point, just look at all the SX synergies in Eagle, that won't be happening....
Talbatross: well forming with Orion makes it seem like you will buy BD over bear
Talbatross: I don't know what commitment means :)
Talbatross: I too am also curious what Patrick wants to do, invest in yellow, or corps?
DanielB: Talb, indeed. It seems so interesting, that I couldn't resist....not better necessarily, than Jupiter, but interesting....
DanielB: and if I'd dividended the $2 and had $18, I'd have not formed.... but given the experience of game 812 - control of good corps can really be worth something!
Amos Cai passes
Amos Cai: Morning guys
DanielB: :)

DanielB passes
Amos Cai passes
Patrick McGregor passes
Talbatross: A mild peace I guess
Talbatross: I figure you'd want to buy SBB off of me

Talbatross: Ironically if I got max for BSE my plan may have been something different...
Eagle offers $1 for BME
Talbatross: That seems like.
Talbatross: That offer for BME seems kinda sad, bear gets a 10 dollar discount for Cost of operation so the reds on it are still just fine.
Amos Cai: I see. my apologies if it seems derisive. first game so haven't understood all the subtleties etc. so what is a fairer offer?
Amos Cai: I was contemplating just passing my turn seeing as how I'm not entirely sure how and what I should be purchasing
Talbatross: It's all good.
Talbatross: I'd ask around, but at this point you just need more capital so you can buy a yellow.
Talbatross: If you issue next round you should be good to try to make a deal. Plus since you are eagle you don't drop in share price for doing so. I guess the real question is whether we will allow you to purchase SBB or DSB from us.
Amos Cai: so I should just pass now or wait for Patrick to accept/reject my offer?
Saturn offers $2 for BME
Orion buys BD for $13 from Foreign Investor
Amos Cai: I should've issued shares for Eagle right? seeing as how I don't drop in share price for doing so. Didn't realise that earlier.
Saturn buys MHE for $6 from Orion
DanielB: Amos, you have plenty of time to issue. You can even pay full dividends and not fall in price... Your fine, you got time... If I can get BME I'll sell you MHE next turn, or as soon as I can... Talb screwed me so badly last auction, that I wish I'd stuck to the plan with you. Oh well...

DanielB: Amos. Select company to sell from the drop down. Then press “sell”
DanielB: Amos. Given that you’d only end up with $14 for your sale. Selling seems like a bad idea in your position. You may want to dividend more aggressively however
Eagle changes share price from $18 to $14
Amos Cai sells share of Eagle for $14
Amos Cai: Oops. Too late.
Amos Cai: Yeah. I miscalculated. Oh well. thanks for the advice btw.
Amos Cai: I could still buy a yellow. but not fantastic.
DanielB: $4 profit on pkp. Or wait a round for an $8 profit (plus $5 this round). Not bad.
DanielB: Ahhh. Or NS for max. Nice.
Patrick McGregor bids $25 for PKP
Talbatross: welp, gotta deal with the Daniel
Talbatross: I'm a dollar short this game
DanielB leaves auction
DanielB: Talb. Buying a share of Orion seems like throwing good money after bad...
Talbatross: probably
Talbatross: I did get a 4 dollar div out of it at least
Talbatross: I think my overview killed me, I probably would not have done what I had last round if I was better with my cash early
Talbatross: Over buys, not overview.
Talbatross: Or over bidding even.
DanielB: In hurting my position Talb, I agree you hurt your own...
DanielB: Conversely. With $37 I may have done the same thing...but Better. Don’t buy Orion. Then go public with sbb and get two shares. Sell one. Buy a yellow and have your new Corp buy it in... though I think if you’d gone public
DanielB: Scratch last Line.
DanielB: You’d be sitting on $27 I think
DanielB: With an $11 share of Jupiter and $29 in Jupiter
DanielB: Going public at $13 and selling at $11
Talbatross: yeah, I missed the boat on going public with 4 shares.
Talbatross: but I'd would've had to start it at 16
Talbatross: or rather 18
DanielB: actually, it wouldn't have worked, 16-18-20 were all taken... so you would have hadd to go 22, but you didn't havethatmuch cash... ($21)., so you wouldhave needed to float at 24,27, and only got one share... tough game
Talbatross: right, eagle was 18 to start
Talbatross: so the question is what will everybody do with their liquidity while I watch?
DanielB: i don't think it's much of a question...
Talbatross: well I feel like the expectation is to buy more companies.
DanielB: indeed. the question, is will another company get bought in round 6... pretty darn likely...plunging us all into armegeddon...
DanielB: Gentlemen: I'm going to suggest we roll back to Amos' turn. He miscalculated on being able to buy something, due to the intervening corps... his sale of Eagle at $14 was castastrophically bad... Shall we let him make that choice again... he's just learning...?
Talbatross: I don't mind either way.
Talbatross: I'd say leave it up to Patrick
Talbatross: and Amos
Amos Cai: Morning guys. I can still bid on PKP and NS yes?
Talbatross: well PKP is up for bid per Patrick putting it up
Amos Cai bids $26 for PKP
Amos Cai buys PKP for $26 from the bank
Talbatross passes
Amos Cai: Ah, there. My bid gives me the company outright. My point was that I’ll still be able to get a company though perhaps not at the best value, etc.
Talbatross: true, it may have made more sense in your context to wait a round to get more value from stock appreciation/divs before executing a purchase.
Amos Cai: Ah now I see you and Daniel’s point. Thank you both.
Amos Cai: Btw, if you two (Daniel and Talb) are keen, we could do a 3p. (Though it’s not best at 3p?) I only suggest it cos you guys play your turns quite fast and are great Teachers to me so far.
Talbatross: I'm not against it, though the game definitely gets more interesting the more talkers and the more willing traders you can get.

Talbatross: so nice, Dnaiel takes a company that he'll be able to buy for full next round and has 2 synergies vs. blocking you for a less company ;)
Talbatross: though I feel like in Patrick's position he could also look at just investing more in bear
Talbatross: 18 bucks, pretty sure it still double jumps

Talbatross: I am a bit concerned you want my SBB over your DR
Talbatross: I can only assume the worst.
DanielB: Win-win, right!
Talbatross: uh huh.
Talbatross: my thought is you're going to take back orion later to harvest some cash out of it by having it buy MHE, then get BD out of it for extra synergy and starpower.
Talbatross: I'm currently debating whether bear was the right stock purchase instead of eagle.
DanielB: Keeping my options open. If you hadn’t bought Orion I’d be sitting on two shara of it :)...you seem destined for double green

Horse passes
DanielB: I think we have a mistake. I thought companies in receivership always issue a share
DanielB: Orion hasn’t had the chance yet!
DanielB: I could have done something so cool. I decided against it (liquidity) but am now regretting not doing it. If I’d have dividended $3 less with Jupiter. Then I buy Orion and buy bed with Jupiter for max, selling it by for min. Then next round he buys SJ from foreign investor. But too many risks and risk of $6 less liquidity and potential opportunity costs as well as my late order... gave me too much pause. When in doubt, cash baby!
DanielB: BD, not “bed”

DanielB: I sure am glad that Talb has a dollar more than Patrick
Talbatross: Uh huh
DanielB: Because Patrick controls Bear. He shouldn’t get the best company
Talbatross: It does have the most stars, but it also has the most baggage
DanielB: I’m referring to bsr
Talbatross: I don't see a problem with him getting BSR.
Talbatross: Considering the lead you have in value it's really a question of whether we can come up with a way to catch up.
DanielB: Talb. You bought in Orion and Bear. Neither is working out. That’s not surprising. Also you bid $10 is round 2 for bpm. These things are hard to come back from.
DanielB: I love what Amos did with Horse. Cool stuff. And the fact he can sell for $30 makes it brilliant. Maybe. Haven’t parsed that
DanielB: Reds are worth less than consensus because they don’t get you anywhere. Even with 4-5 of them they are pretty worthless without PR
DanielB: The main value of a good red that I see is to get a powerful special power (Jupiter, Saturn, Bear)
DanielB: Corp
Talbatross: Yeah my overbid would've been fine 1 round earlier, but instead it has definitely cost me in terms of power
DanielB: $10 round to is the same as $12 round 1. I don’t bid more than $9 in round 1 for bpm. My opinion. Because in round 2 you often get an orange for face value and it pays two extra rounds without maintenance

DanielB: Talb. I do t understand. Why did my forming with DR lead you to say you shouldn’t make deals with DANIEL?
Talbatross: well, the deal is not bad for me, but you wanted to open Jupiter strong with double yellow. I failed to see that.
Talbatross: which from my estimation is really strong.
Talbatross: really it just amounts to Toby yelling at me for ever making deals with you ;)
Talbatross: If you were using it to keep Saturn going, it would've been more ok. I got a lot to learn about reading the state of the game.
DanielB: Swapping corps is a major state of the game. Continually
DanielB: The need for fresh investor money swamps all other “wants”...
Talbatross: indeed, though you have developed the reputation for extracting "more" out of these swaps. I'd call it a sign of respect.
Amos Cai: Can I constantly be in a game with you two? I feel like I’ll learn so much more this way. Though it’s a slow process, I’m enjoying it
