Loved this game and finally had a chance to play my GenCon copy last night with friends.
Thanks, I'm glad you liked it
Interestingly, since there is no reshuffle, once you sell shares and discard the cards, they go out of circulation, never to be acquired again. Was this something you thought about while developing the rules?
Yes that was intentional. This can be very important to your strategy. For example if a stock goes bankrupt with one turn left, then that stock can be worth a lot during the last round of bidding since you might be able to win a majority bonus with only 1-2 stocks.
There's only 10 of each stock, and there won't be any more. Use that information to your advantage. Even though there is luck in Stockpile, once you start looking for those deeper strategies you might be surprised how much control you have over your own destiny.
