It's supposed to be one on the company boards. You can't auction off one of your own shares.

Although I still think that might be interesting to try, as a variant...

This would create a lot of problems, that would entail a whole heap of variants to correct.

Agreed. It works in Pampas, but Pampas is a much more controlled and predictable game and that does a lot to help it work. It other adjustments weren't made it would be a mess in Wabash Cannonball.

I hear you, but have someone actually tried it? Of course it would be different and it would create problems for people to predict and control the game. Sure, it is a tactic to "kill" all interest in a company by making sure its shares get evenly distributed on all players - so opening up a possibility to re-vitalise a company in this way by selling off your own share would introduce some whole new tactics.

I for one think it would be interesting to try at least once (or know that others have tried and discarded the idea) before I throw the idea away.

I have enough problems predicting and controlling the game already. I don't think Chicago Express lacks chaos and unpredictability at all.
