Basically the question is whether you can ever end up with a piece of art from the auction even though you didn't bid.

Both real life logic and game logic say no.

I'm confused. Are you talking about the International Market? Because there is no bidding in that area. You simply place an assistant in the lower half of the board by going to that location and the person with the most total value where they placed gets first choice, then second choice, etc. Tiebreaker is the player who's assistant is farthest to the right in the lowest position.

Pretty sure that's what Chad meant by "bid".

If you didn't bid, you don't get the art from the international auction.

note that the tiebreaker is the highest total bid value in the column furthest to the right containing assistants.

r = red player's assistant, b = blue player's assistant, x = no assistant wrote:
1 r r r
3 r r r
6 b b x

red and blue each have a bid total of 12. red wins the tiebreaker, since red has a total bid value of 4 in the right most column containing bids, which is higher than blue who has a total bid value of 0 in that column.

r = red player's assistant, b = blue player's assistant, x = no assistant wrote:
1 b r x
3 b r x
6 x x x


red wins again.

r = red player's assistant, b = blue player's assistant, x = no assistant wrote:
1 r r r
3 r r r
6 b x b


but this time, blue won the tiebreaker 6 to 4.
