This was the first time I played this game. I won it after getting 90% of what becanme the top priced company (FNM). I suspect that I should not have been able to get that number of shares and it was other players inexperience as well that allowed me to.
Played a 7 player game against very experienced players (all the sets of Outpost at Midcon had replacement cards as the originals had worn out!). I had a very good draw early and managed to make the data library strategy work for once. It ended up quite a large margin,
