Christopher Rao: Maybe it was a mistake, but it synergizes with my SX and I thought you'd outbid me.
Christopher Rao: Plus, I thought it was better than KK, the other company I can afford that synergizes with SX.
Jacky Chan: I thought you would outbid me on B, but I guess I got wrong
DanielB: I didn’t outbid Christopher for PKP with two synergies. Why would I outbid you? Logic. If I’d really wants it that bad I would have bid $23 Jacky.

Jason T: Daniel, I'm contemplating 23 for the PR
Jason T: ... but I think I need the personal liquidity instead. When I buy in the OL this turn the PR would make me +7 a turn so a bid somewhere around $20 would make sense for me (Dunno about you)

DanielB: I’m travelling in northwest. Sorry didn’t get back to you. No need for me to firesale the pr. Next round?

DanielB: I said 21 for MS this round. Sure $18 next round unless I can buy ol or sx.
Jason T: Sorry, don't know where I got 17 from. Let me think about 18, might be a little too steep
DanielB: Jason. A takeover of my incredible assets is an alternative idea
Jason T: Yeah, I was looking at that too...
Jason T: Doesn't seem too bad for you, you'd be left with $20ish in cash depending on where android lands and a yellow making you $6 a turn
Jason T: Not sure it's as good for me though

Ship pays $2 dividends - Jason T receives $2
Ship changes share price from $12 to $10
Jason T: Daniel, how about this: If I sell you OL and MHE, your income goes to +11 a turn. Given that, I think it's fair to ask $22 for the set (50% ROI) You can sell a share in 5.1 to pay for it, and I think that sets you up pretty nice with a decent income to eventually buy the DR from whomever buys it (Alex?) and create a synergy monster in the Android. Thoughts?
Jason T: Sorry, goes up +11 a turn, from +8 to +19
Christopher Rao: That's a decent idea. Except it fails to reconcile the impending 6dollars of maintenance costs coming soon.
Jason T: It’ll go to 3 first, and even then it’s profitable...
Jason T: But I think we got 2 turns of current 1 maintenance before then

DanielB: Christopher. Willing to liquidate ships holdings to android?
DanielB: Jackie. Are you open to selling b at reasonable price?
Jacky Chan: Daniel, yes I am open. What's your offer?
Jacky Chan passes
DanielB: Well. It turns not profitable this turn or next for you. If I choose to not buy a blue then it has more value. But I sacrifice $15 of personal income. Big cost. Typically at this stage value is close to min. But for me a bit more than that. How about $15 for B or $29 for all except BR but the second part is dependent on whether Christopher will sell me his portfolio (more synergies for me)
DanielB: So much for "Game Theory Fast" and "Speedy Gonzales"
Christopher Rao: Seems to me that there's no real reason to sell you my portfolio instead of selling it to the Wheel (who can buy everything), because then both companies die.
Christopher Rao: But... if you buy a share of the Ship, then for $14 or $15 of personal cash, you get ALL of its assets, and I no longer circle the drain with no way to get enough income to buy another private. I still lose, but at least have something to do.
Jacky Chan: I will take $15 for B.
Jason T passes
Christopher Rao: Jacky - I don't think you answered my suggestion. Are you interested in taking over the Ship? If so, I will sell as soon as you buy, and you can do with its assets as you like. Otherwise, I'll just buy over to wheel.
DanielB: Jacky, deal on B
Jacky Chan: Oh sorry Chris, I didn't know that you were addressing to me. I thought you were addressing Daniel. No I am not interested in taking over Ship, but thanks
Jacky Chan: I don't get enough synergy with what's in Ship to be worth it
DanielB: Christopher, I'll give you min bids for OL, MHE, BPM, AKE...leaving you bse for the corp, and SX to move to wheel?

Christopher Rao: Re. DB's rather complex proposal. While I imagine it's fair to Jacky (b/c it's coming from Daniel), this illustrates the central problem I have with the negotiation aspect of RS: that in almost all cases, someone will get the better of the deal, even as it's difficult to figure out who that will be.
Christopher Rao: This effectively means that players who don't want to wheel and deal because of this issue (such as Paul and I) are disadvantaged compared to players who do it well.
Christopher Rao: In the real world, of course, I negotiate almost literally every day for my job. The difference is that the real world does not have zero sum outcomes of winning and losing like a game does.
Christopher Rao: I still like RS, and am even trying to get Forrest in a game, but the degree to which the game hinges on mid- to late-game deals frankly decreases the chances that I'll want to keep playing it.
Christopher Rao: See, I don't think that a couple of early game deals are a serious problem. There's so much game left to play that it's impossible to calculate, and there are times where it is truly obvious that A should sell a company to B. As the game progresses, though, it begins more and more possible to map out end game outcomes, and that's the issue.
Christopher Rao passes
Jacky Chan: I think I will not agree to the proposal. I don't want to weaken Saturn, and I am ok with getting MM for $75 if RU gets taken from me.
DanielB: My proposal was too long term and complex. Proposals of one maximal two rounds in duration are about all that is possible or good in RS
DanielB: Jackie. If you get ru you are very likely to win. Otherwise Jason is likely. I need a disproportionate deal to get back into it. Not buying a blue and. Not having profitable ow warship was a huge swing in that round.
DanielB: Christopher. You were arguably leading in this game but you failed to execute the high share plan... I’m not sure when you slipped or maybe I’m mixing up with another game
Jason T: You could all just buy in to Orion too... just sayin’ ;)
DanielB: I reviewed... I'd mixed up games.... Christopher, you bought PKP at $25... which you survived fine, but then you bought KK, instead of FS... That was your downfall I believe...You were going to have it synergize with PKP... but that's the same income as FS - but for two less rounds ($12) difference, sometimes 3 rounds...
Orion changes share price from $31 to $34
Jason T buys share of Orion for $34
DanielB: I hope everyone saw how painful my not buying a blue when I could, turned out to be... I just oversaw the FI buying in FS, and that' loss of $30 of income made a lot of difference, shooting Jacky and Jason ahead...

Jason T: So my other line of play that round was to sell two shares of Orion and I might have gotten enough to buy two purples instead of just one. I'm curious: Jacky, if I had sold Orion down to 37 for my first action instead of buying the LE, would you have bought the horse for 41?
Jason T: If so I could have sold again down to 34 and had $180ish and bought the $90 and the $86 purple. But if you hadn't bought the horse I don't think I could have sold the second share of Orion for enough
DanielB: Christopher. Why did you not buy a share? I’m fully committed to horse
DanielB: I thought that was obvious
Jason T: Horse is only going to single jump this round, right? So he can still buy it next round for only a little more...
Jason T: Oh, unless you consolidate into the horse, like you said you were going to. :P
Jacky Chan: Not sure, Jason. That's interesting.

DanielB: on the other hand, he stuck his head into the meat grinder by swapping a share of bear for saturn, so my benefit there should help... now will Jason's 3 purples and a blue be assailable? Maybe if AL can get into horse for two rounds...not sure... still lots of variables...

DanielB: Damn straight it was. I’m pretty sure it wins you the game

Jason T: 2 shares of Horse are insanely good - I wanted to buy Orion to help the rest of my shares but that Horse is a gold mine
DanielB: You see. If Christopher buys horse for $45. Then Jason buys Orion for $50. Then Jackie is shut out of the second horse share. And I get mine for $55. Jackie then probably steals Bear. Which is u fortunate. But I then gain that liquidity from Bear. Tough math
Jason T: Yeah, that's how I saw it going too
Jason T: I had a chance with Jacky only getting one Horse, but two is gonna be too tough I think, even with my 3 purps
Jason T: Fun game. :) We should play it out of course, but I'm pretty sure it's Jacky's game at this point
Jason T: I think I made a mistake buying a 4th Orion, probably shoulda bought a Horse there instead
DanielB: Good analysis Jason. Yes. Because horse is getting fed cheap assets still and is under valued whereas Orion is not.
Jason T: Sure, Horse is better than Orion. I'm saying even though I had 3 Orion shares already (and buying another one helps their share price) Horse is still better to buy in that situation

DanielB: Christopher. I’m quite bummed that you passed to believe in a fantasy scenario where you would have gotten horse for $4 cheaper. Not because it was bad play (greedy/desperate perhaps) but because I’d put myself in a position to compete for the end game. When Jackie got the cheap second horse share it put him too much ahead. I was going to sell down a horse to buy two more bears but Jackie can follow suit. Hardly worth while. Besides my big mistake not buying a blue in round X9?, my little mistake was not consolidating the fourth blue with horse immediately. which made me vulnerable

Game over. DanielB ($590), Jacky Chan ($574), Jason T ($571), Christopher Rao ($141), AlexRockwell ($3)
DanielB: That was the goal Jacky. You did have me. The Investor strategy was triumphant, but you broke with it in 16.3 and I had the liquidity to hurt you. If you had simply bought what I bought you’d have won. Also. In 15.2 or 16.2 did you consider floating with cdg or al? It would have given you cool options/levers which would have yield d better alternative choices.
DanielB: Jason, you were in position for the Simon this too. But youneededto dividend a bit more tactically. But even then you came very close. congrats. !
Christopher Rao: Grats, Daniel!
