DanielB: Amos, I'm open to offers to buy my companies
Amos Cai: I'm guessing you want $9 for BPM or $7 for KME? so at least you get a $1 profit from them? I'm still figuring out the math btw. Sorry if my offers seem off.
DanielB: I'd sure like those numbers... for a package, I can perhaps manage a small discount...
DanielB: just $9 for the BPM would do me fine this turn...
DanielB: $9, maybe $8 for the other two next turn?
Amos Cai: After some consideration, I will have to acquire two or no companies this turn. so my offer will be $10 for BPM and BSE.
DanielB: Amos. $11 you got a deal. (Break even for me. 0 profit.
Amos Cai: $11 it is.

-- Round: 9 Phase: 7 (Check Game End) --
Game over. Talbatross ($179), DanielB ($148), Amos Cai ($113), weisswurst ($86)
DanielB: Amazing how not valuable the first blue can be isn't it! The FRA is overpriced without the Yellow juggernaut, or LHR/CDG.... Surprisingly, E is less overpriced due to those healthy $8 synergies.... Talbot's game was a thing of beauty, he got a lead with shares, floated a super cheap RED at like $13, and used investor money to get his money train rolling... Getting DSB for cheap was critical, rolling it into DSB, how'd he get DR? I think letting him get DR/DSB/BSR combo sealed our fate... using Star was just genius, however, even without Star he wins, simply with $20 less personal cash...
DanielB: Amos, why'd you sell me Renfe... You lost $2... You would have ended up at $55, either $50 + $5 dividend, or $55 share price, if you dividend nothing...
DanielB: Weiswurst, I hope you see V.2 as a challenge! I don't remember what led you to fall off the cliff. Your liquidations to get FRA actually cemented your fate, I think, though I'm not sure you had a pulse at that late of date anyway.... Amos, you fought nicely, just slipping in the endgame....
weisswurst: I have played v2 a few times now, but I find it much less enjoyable than v1. The receivership possibility just gives too many options. This is just a game design choice that I do not like. More options just do not make a game better. V1 already suffered a bit from runaway problems, the receivership thing just makes this worse.
weisswurst: The nice thing about v1 is that you have to be really careful in handling your reds, oranges and yellows. You have to invest in them but still you know they will be a problem later. This feeling is completely gone in v2.
DanielB: Well, Weiswurst, that's totally fair. I find V1 more enjoyable, on average, due to the exciting endgames... But V2 has excitement too, and some non-trivial amount of subtlety in the mid-game as well as really interesting early game possibilities that V1 doesn't offer...so I find it totally pretty good. Not quite as perfect as V1 - but in a subtle way, really good. maybe analyse it a little more, take a break, and trying again if the player constellation matches your preferences???? I"m so pleased with Talbot's victory, it came out of nowhere and surprised the heck out of me, the possibility to end in Round 9, wow
Amos Cai: Thanks for the kind words Daniel. I think I'm slowly understanding the game better but to learn even more/faster, I need to go and reread the rules and think more about the mechanisms and the gameplay. Understand the phases, etc. Thanks again for the game guys.
weisswurst: Talbs victory did not come out of nowhere.He made great use of Eagle that I sent in receivership. He executed perfectly of course!
weisswurst: But nah, v2 is just not for me. With hundreds of games on my shelves and available online, I rather spend time on games that I just enjoy more.
DanielB: ahhh right, thanks for reminding me of that... Yes, you slingshot him his lead when you vacated... Okay, now I feel a little better.... good reminder, never let another player get the advantage from someone else's refuse...
DanielB: Weiswurst, how about a v.1 with us? Game 904
Amos Cai: @Daniel, ok if I join Game 944?
DanielB: Sure Amos. Bring your A game. Looking forward to your improvement. How many v1 s have u played now?
Amos Cai: Only 1. that's still ongoing. Maybe I should sit this one out and observe. I think learning from observing is quite good too
