While the rule book does a pretty good job for most of the game, I was a bit confused as to how the deal limit applies: is it the maximum amount of money that can be made from the deal *per player*, or is it the maximum amount of money that can be made *per share*?

Hi James--

The deal limit is meant to pertain "per share".

Thanks for your interest in the game.

Oops, I was taught wrong at SaltCON. Oh, well...I still won!
I kept thinking that was awfully low.

Hi J Chav,

Sorry about that. The video was from the prototype (about a year before the game was released too!) so we changed the cap rules slightly. Sorry again!

Sean
