This is the one that costs 100 and gives 25 each OR.

The text on the card mentions that it may be traded in for one share of a company, and that if the share comes from the treasury of the company the bank pays for the share. Is this correct?

I actually used this to get a share of a company at 340 at the end of the game, paying nothing. It didnt seem quite right, but my opponents agreed with my interpretation based on the card text.

Did we play it correctly?

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

I don't think this power is mentioned in the rules. I wonder whether it should have been removed from the Guillaume-Luxembourg certificate.

Curious. The card in my set doesn't say anything like that. It says:
Quote:
"Treated as a minor company in the initial auction. May be sold to Open Market and bought from the Open Market at face value during a Stock Round."


My rulebook ("Version 1.0, 4 October 2010", which is the latest version available for download from the publishers website) says essentially the same thing, slightly expanded, in section 3.2.5. Is section "3.2.5 The Guillaume-Luxembourg" in your rule book? If it is different from what the card says, keep in mind section 9, which includes: "In the event of conflict between the official rules and any components, the rules take precedence."

Sorry, not my game, and I dont have the exact text on the certificate. Played it with Vien the other night, so maybe he can reference the text.

My set has a Guillaume-Luxemboug card that states:
Quote:
May be exchanged during stock round for a single share of stock (including half of a President's Certificate) - Bank pays Company share value if from Treasury.

I suspect the printing on Vien's certificate is a vestige of an earlier version of the rules.
