Hey Ideogram, enjoying the RRT game right now. I do own Container and have played a few times, but far from comfortable with it. If you get pressed for numbers let me know and I would brush up and join in.

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

I was just thinking that I should get a PBF game going.

Logistically, what are we going to do for auctions? GM the seller?

We also need a moderator to distribute the secret cards.

I'm also new to the game but am interested.
Maybe I could be moderator for the first time through. Unless I had to do rules adjudication or something like that. I'm just not familiar enough with the game. But if it was as simple as giving people the secret cards and then confirming final scoring, I'd be happy to help.

Why don't you play? This is a great game and it's really simple at heart.

Were we going to use any of the 'additional' rules? Personally I think Financier saves the game but it would also be adding an extra auction here, which I'm not sure is wise. Putting price restrictions never appealed to me either. Luxury containers can be fun but leaving them out is just as fun. Monopoly rules... well, it's got the word 'monopoly' in the title so I don't use it.

I vote for the base game only.

I like the base game without luxury containers or the economies of scale. Face-to-face I'd play with Financier but Jay is right - we should keep it simple and quick. The Monopoly variant doesn't really change much (there are fewer available factories and you can double up on colours) so I'm happy to play with or without.

I find it hillarious that I bought all those extra components and I dislike half of them.

I like to think that I'll appreciate the variants more once I get an understanding of the base game... whistle

Re: Play by Forum?
I like the IDEA of Monopolies but in practice it's pretty silly.

You can play this game online, also, but you either play with Second Shipment or without... so if I want financier I have to take in the economies of scale and luxury goods... ugh.

Nothing against DDYER, who has done a fantastic job implementing it and also coding an AI player so that 2 player games are possible and 3 player games are more lively. It always loses, but it IS called Dumbot so shouldn't we expect that?

We have 5 if we want.

Jay/Mark M/Brendan/ideogram/Andrew P.

Mark said only if pressed for numbers, though, so maybe he can distribute the cards?

4 is JC Lawrence's preferred player number, so we almost have to play with 4, right? whistle

Yay, we're playing an abstracted form of Container.

No thanks. I've renamed your containers.

Apples
Bananas
Crayons
Duct Tape
Eggs

That's better.

I've had success with google docs as a way to track games, such as The Resistance and Master of Economy (more on point there). That way the display is there for all to check, but then again it is off-site from here.

So here I am. If you need any help I gladly will. In the mean time I will read the rules since I wanted to play this for a long time. And maybe in a next game I will be a player.

What we need from you, Adam (that was fast!) is to hand out the secret cards to our players here. There are 5 cards, and 4 players. Each player gets one.

For the players, the first on there will be your $10 good, then your 10/5, 6, 4, 2.

So send each player a message with one of the following: ABCDE, BCDEA, CDEAB, DEABC, EABCD

This should be randomized somehow.

Thanks, Adam!
I'll look forward to my card.
And thanks, all, for letting a newbie join. I hope you can all be patient with any boneheaded moves/bids I make.

Just don't bid too much. Oh, and don't bid too little, either.

Thanks to Adam for stepping in - I've received my card. Shall we set up a thread in the PlayByForum subforum?

If we're doing player colours, I pick green.

Seems player order is:
