I don't like the new version auction. It's way to easy to hold onto, the powerful, first player token.Then why don’t other players bid higher if it’s so powerful in the long term?
Also, holding onto the flag would mean the first player spends money every round on the first auction, causing two things:
- they have less money for the next auctions
- they spend money for just one extra action (which they might spend to get money back)
Am I missing something?
