After playing this game quite a bit I love it. Still round 1 the market is an interesting and baffling thing to some degree. Sure I get that if you are NOT going to go for any round 1 gems you can speculate in the market to decrease the value of the gems displayed and vice versa. Yet after playing Silk Road I got the idea of adopting it's method of randomly pulling 3 "starting gems" each player. If each player did so it would give added incentive to speculate in the market round 1.
