I played a solo game last night, and after a few turns, I found myself always buying the cards for $3 as long as the card was worth more that $3. This was because you could sell them back for a profit. It was kind of a no brainer. Am I doing something wrong? What is to stop you from always buying a bunch of cards as long as you can sell them back for more? If that is the case, it seem to make that part of the game much less interesting.

Perhaps I am missing a rule about selling contracts as a standard action? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

That would make a LOT more sense and will make the game a lot more fun. I interpreted the rule wrong when they said "discard any number of cards to get the same number of cash" I thought they were referring to the cost of playing the card.

Thank you very much!

Now you're still going to be buying all of the cards because they seem really good and cursing your inability to actually pay for them. At least that's what happens to me.

Are you saying I shouldn't be holding 6 cards in my hand that cost over 40 MC each when two of the game ending criteria are already fulfilled and the other is two steps from being completed?

Yes. The game was not even that fun since I had so much cash. I knew I must have been doing something wrong. Thanks again for the help!

So played it again and this time, I lost the solo with a score of 61. Much, much better experience when you play by the rules!
