Is it only me that finds the following sentence ambiguous? From the section under Buying Shares

"Once each player has had the opportunity to buy shares play progresses to the auction of the next company’s available shares, i.e. a player never has a second opportunity to buy shares in a single game turn."

The last sentence says one can only buy shares ONCE per turn. That means only 5 opportunities to buy shares in the entire game! That does not seem right.

Our game group played that one could only buy shares once from each auction of a company's shares...but that one could buy shares from each company share auction if one had the money.

Are we right or wrong?

It should read "a player never has a second opportunity to buy shares of any one company in a single game turn."

At least that's how we played. I never noticed that sentence but only 5 opportunities to buy shares in the entire game wouldn't make any sense.
