After winning nothing on Monday, I hoped to bounce back with a win in one of my Tuesday games.

That didn't happen.

I probably *should* have won my game of Automobile; I played the first three rounds very well, and took Chrysler for the 4th round. This meant that I could produce last, and (hopefully) gain an advantage when selling at the end. Instead: despite watching the other players produce 27 economy cars, I went ahead with 9 more. I did have the most advanced factories for that class, but I was also last in turn order for executive decisions, meaning most of the cylinders were gone before I could get my share. Worse, the player to my left produced a 2nd time, adding more middle-class cars than I was prepared for.

I took a lot of black cubes that round and ended up losing a close one, $4830-$4650-$4160-$2980.

I could not play the 2nd heat, and figured I just blew my chance at the SF round. However, the format called for a 16-person semi, and only 12 different people won games ... and I was the 4th alternate. Thus, I still qualified for the SF round.

That game felt like the opposite of my heat game. In the heat, I felt that I started strong and finished poorly; with the SF round, I started poorly (slashing prices in each of the first three rounds AND taking two loans) but fiinished strong (selling a ton of cars in each of the last two rounds; in the last round, I was the only one who DIDN'T slash prices, nor did I need to). The player to my right sold even more cars late, and my 2nd loan proved too much to overcome; I finished 2nd (again!), $4540-$4120-$3970-$3170.

Mayfair games version.

NOTE DOES NOT INCUDE THE PAPER MONEY.
excellent game, everything in excellent condition, except missing the paper money. We tossed the paper money long ago. The paper money can easily be replaced with poker chips if you have them. Time to let this copy find a new home.

Dust level = just shy of 5 years.

Quite a gap between my first and second plays. Want to get a third play in soon.

Economic game where tactics and strategy blend together in a super-tight package. The game is calculation heavy to be sure, but we don't mind engaging in meaningful calculations. Those kind are even welcome. The gamers in my group all like this game and for one it is his favorite. Whenever we have five players, he invariably asks for it. Gotta keep the gamers you game with happy, no?

Economic delight. Enough chaos to eliminate it from being a pure numbers game. Knowing when to shut down your factories and entering new markets makes this a fun experience every time.

That's Tim Powers' fictional Samuel Coleridge "quoting" John Milton in _The Anubis Gates_.

I've a delusional fantasy in which Martin Wallace and John Bohrer never fell out; and Bohrer transcended his personal only-train-games constraint (yeah; I said I was delusional) and trained his developer's talents on Automobile before it was released.

That might have resulted in the best game ever. Oh, well.

The version I have is still one which has provided a great deal of entertainment over the years. My Wednesday gang loves it; my nephews find it particularly cool: I've really enjoyed it, flaws or no.

I believe you find life such a problem because you think there are the good people and the bad people. You're wrong, of course. There are, always and only, the bad people, but some of them are on opposite sides.

The first time I played this at a con, we somehow missed the rule that when you close down a factory, you also halve the number of loss points you have.
This caused really bad losses in the end of round phase, and caused a mad grab for Chrysler and Sloane. After the game, we checked the rules and figured out what we did wrong.

...

Some months later, one of the guys which played with me during that game bought the game for himself. We played with some other people, and yet we managed to miss the exact same rule again.
