All the red shares where sold and someone wanted to sell just 3
of their shares. There was no 2 red "1" cards to swap. Can they
make this transaction? The 4 others had them split and no one had exactly 5 "1"'s to trade.

Thanks Nate

I would say "yes".

The game does not have the share certificate values as a deliberate restriction, unlike some games.

So you would just need to take the 5 certificate out of circulation (total number of shares is a restriction) and have 5 hand written red shares with a value of 1 for a period of time.

We play absolute shares so that there are so many singles and so many "blocks" of 5.

However we also play "friendly" shares. If someone has 5 individual shares and there is a 5 stock available they trade in and upgrade to the five. This obviously won't work if you are playing hidden shares, which I don't.

We play like this also, but in the OP's scenario, I'd just say that the seller was screwed, he could sell all or nothing since noone could actually make change for him.

That's an interesting way of playing it. I just figured the 5 was to turn in your singles for a 5.

I like the idea better that the only way you get a 5 is to buy 5 straight away. I would then guess the only way to get rid of the 5 is to sell the entire 5 as well.
