As with any auction game, for a first time play, it can be difficult to gauge how high to bid on the first auction... What do you find is an average/reasonable value that wins the first specialist auction in Planet Steam? In general, do winning bids increase throughout the game?

The computer game normally bids up to about 32 but as the game goes on this gets lowered to the mid twenties. This high figure is often associated with the venturer being chosen.

In my experience for the actual games, the figure is usually less than 30 in the first round and decreases during the game as money becomes more scarce.

Much of it depends on who you are playing with though.

Which computer game? Mule on the C64 or is there something newer?

Thanks for the response.

A similar followup question - how much do the winning shaft auctions typically go for? Again, just looking for a rough average, so we can get a decent first play of the game without money being expended too quickly or slowly.

This one, perhaps, quite obviously varies depending on whether the computer (PC version downloadable from the Ludoarts website) has the venturer or not - 30-35 if it does, early twenties if it doesn't.

In the proper game this is lowered by about 20% but does depend on how much cash is available. They can still sometimes go for 30-36 in the last round, but low to mid 20s is more typical.
