Hi, everyone.

Is there enough people interested in playing For Sale by Forum? I'd like to know what would be the differences in game play when the players can have "perfect memory" about what was played and how much money everyone else has. If the player chooses to do that, anyway.

If you think this can be an enjoyable experience, drop a comment below. I'll moderate the game in an easy pace just so all players have fun.

Rules:
- player order to be defined by geek die roller. 6 player limit.
- I'll draw the properties and players start the bidding
- After all proporties are bought, I'll draw the checks and each player will GM me the property he wants to sell.
- Selling is resolved, repeat until last turn.

This is not meant to be deep, just for fun. Would you like to join?

Cheers!

I'd love to join in. I've been wanting to try out this whole "play by forum" thing, and I know For Sale pretty well, and this sounds great.

I'm up for it too, having been one of the voting participants in wmcduff's game.

Wow that was fast! Consider yourselves in.

I will arrange everything to begin soon after the weekend. Meanwhile does everyone agree on Gryphon rules - round up what you bid (bid 3, pay 2, get 1 back) ?

Will the game be publicly viewable? I'd like to be able to see games as they're played, as well as what players do in certain situations.

I like the Gryphon rules as well.

As for publicly viewable, I'll try to keep notes of my thought process. It'll be odd spending a little time looking instead of just going of instinct on the numbers.

Now that you said it, I'll probably add a game summary/status to help everyone out.

Well, in other editions there was a translation problem. The rules said to round UP the money that returned to you if you were not the one that won the bidding round.
This was corrected in the Gryphon edition. You round DOWN the money that return to you.

I just added the Play By Forum thread, everyone please check in and subscribe to it!
