This game is PBF for Chit Chatters jeffwiles, Toggy, kunnagh, EgorjLileli, Dejah_Thoris, and Rappak.

Feel free to refer to my guide for n00bs.

The rules are pretty much summed up here, and we'll be referring to this card throughout the game. When determining how many sacks are harvested, determine if the field is fertilized (Geduengt) or not (Ungeduengt), and how many worms you've got in that field (Anzahl der Wuermer).



I'll wait for everyone to post here before we start. Turns will be taken simultaneously. Sales will be registered through geekmail. Please title your geekmail DK year 1 sale (or whatever the year is).

Cheers and Good Luck!

Can you take about one turn a day during the work week? If so, Jeff said he'd happily sit out to let you play.

That's a new word for me. I'm unemployed, too. Well, I guess I'm "underemployed" now. So the game will be a bit slow on Mondays and Wednesdays before 2 CST.

Glad to have you!

My tip is this: for the first couple of year of the game, if not this whole first game, look at my n00b guide. Every time before you do an action, consider everything that I've written.

Something you're going to have to consider before starting, though, is if you want to go completely organic or not. Going organic takes some time, and if you start spraying/fertilizing your fields year 1, it'll take you longer, although in a six-year game, you'll be able to fix it before the end. Or you might want to have some fields organic and some fields not -- it's your call.

Again, just keep looking back at that guide and compare it to your board.

Okay, I'm about to head off to teach. I'll be back in seven hours.

Just waiting for Dejah_Thoris to confirm that she knows about the game, then we'll start! Yay!

I've never played it before but part of this game got censored last night when we were talking about it over Tim's unwrapping of his bob gift. That was hillarious.

So very sorry, all. I was crazy, insanely busy, then I got really, really, really sick. All better now! I'm going to set up the boards tonight so we can get started. Again, I'm very sorry for the down time.

Year 1.0: Game Preparation

Here are your starting boards. I hope you can see your usernames. I'll try to find a thicker marker. In the meantime, please just click on the picture for the larger version. Everyone starts with 800 Marks. Money is normally secret, but since it can be easily tracked in a forum, we'll just keep it open.




Starting market:




Messages: (Remember, in step 5, a die roll will determine which of these happens.)

1-3: Brussels: EC decides on subsidies. All rates increase by 20 Marks

4-5: Washington: US trade agreement EC increases potato imports to EC. The demand for Amalie-Norm and Biola-Bio drops by 1.

6: Bonn: Epidemic spreading of a potato fungus. For unsprayed fields, the profit changes as follows: Amalie-Norm -3, Amalie-Bio -1, Biola -2, Chris -1.


Year 1.1: Taking Compost
Okay, everyone, the game has finally started! Choose the number of worms from each field you're putting into the compost pile. Each field has a number that you can see if you enlarge the picture. Please state those fields you're taking worms from, and how many. Once everyone has posted, we'll move on to 1.2.
