I'm really looking forward to this game, but the blind bidding concerns me. I'm not a fan of blind bidding where bidding losers still lose their money. This just punishes those who are already punished even further (by not getting the item they wanted/needed, then further punishment by paying anyway). I've seen this in numerous bidding games and it just makes it a random luckfest and spoils the enjoyment for me.

So my proposed variant is a Safe Blind Bidding system:

Only the winning bidders pay their money.
The losing bidders DO NOT lose any money.



Any thoughts on how this might effect the game as a whole? Would it ruin it in some way that I can't think of?

Seems fine to me. I had the same thoughts but won't know for sure until I try it both ways and that won't be until it arrives.
