1. Black Briefcases
Problem: Rules state BBs are put to the side of the board when drawn from the bag. Rules also seem to state BBs are replaced on the board and then into the bag due to market level.

Solution: 1 BB is returned to the bag (the minus 1 factor). It still counts against the silver track. Remaining BBs are put to the side of the bag - for use in the restocking of sales track 2.

Our Scenario: Game 1, putting ALL the BBs into the bag (after replacing them on the bottom right part of the board for the market level) led to a market that crashed... and crashed... and crashed... literally every stock was in the bottom left hand corner.

Game 2, after one or two market scares/semi-crashes, the majority of the black bags have been removed and the market is on a steady upward incline because of our positive buying behavior. Yay

If anyone else is having any Rules Clarifications problems, I'd be happy to try and help - I LOVE this game!

The game starts with no black briefcases in the bag. (What could go wrong?)

You put black briefcases into the bag either when the stock sale track causes a market adjustment (put 1, 2, or 3 in depending on which of the three sale tracks you were using) or when the game enters a new phase. So for example, if after the first market adjustment the stocks are up to the phase 2 band, put the 1st and 2nd black briefcases from the set of nine in the lower left corner into the bag.

When you pull briefcases out of the bag, if there's just one black briefcase, it drives the price of silver up one spot and returns to the bag. If there are more than one, they affect the stock prices and do not return to the bag. Put them by the side of the board and use them to re-stock the (middle) stock sale track when needed.
