I can see some arguments for either. I cannot seem to find material to back either viewpoint however. I am leaning toward up. My logic is: The rules seem to only address the winners tile. I would guess if losing bids were to be flipped it would say because that would be important.

Face up. Face down would mean that losing a bid was utterly disasterous.

True. Adding to this.

Reading the rules, turning down is described for a winning tile, and in no other case. Hence a losing tile is not turned face down. Do what the rules say and don't invent cases.

(There's also some other ways I could indicate that this is definitely the rule, which it 100% definitely is.)

Thank you! I wanted to run it this week and I hate it when I teach a game wrong!
