Which is not always an advantage. There are vards nobody wants, but everybody is forced to place a bid. Of course, everybody bids their mechanic with zero ZAP! - the Chief mechanic is getting the card and making it less probable to draw his well chosen cards in the next round after shuffling ... Tricky bastard sometimes, this game.

Welcome...to my Shed!
Whenever there is a tied bid, the 'winner' is determined as 'next left from the player with the spanner' (which could be the player with the spanner him/herself), the next tied player round from the 'winner' gets the spanner as a 'consolation prize' (some consolation!).
Each round of bidding is started by the player with the spanner.
