Hi...

Wonder if we play it right?

Yes or No.

1- A plant that was auctioned and nobody bid on it remains in the active market.
2- When a player passes during an auction, he can still bid later in other auctions.
3- A player may pass when he has to choose a plant to be auctioned, then he cannot bid for the rest of the round.

We played YES-YES-YES

Are we right?
Thanks

Owl

Actually it's NO, YES, and YES.

>1- A plant that was auctioned and nobody bid on it remains in the active market.

Can't happen. When a player chooses a plant to be auctioned, he must start the bidding with a minimum bid of at least the printed value of the plant. If no one else bids, he gets it at that price. Thus every plant chosen to be auctioned ALWAYS get sold to someone. This is the major reason for passing on choosing, you don't want any of the available plants and you think that the others will stick you with one of them if you start an auction and even worse it could allow a better plant to come on the market that you then can bid on at all. This is yet another disadvantage of being ahead in the city count. This was also the major reason for the market stagnation that happened during pahse 2 in the original game and why the "discard the smallest plant if none are sold on a round" rule was added to the game.

Both of the others are correct.

Thanks. Your answers are clear.
During our first game, some players decided not to bid on their choosing and passed on it keeping their possibility of bidding in later auctions.

Thanks again

If it is your turn to choose a power plant and you choose to pass then you may not participate in any further auctions that turn at all.

If someone else chooses a power plant you may pass on that power plant and participate in a future auction on that turn.
