popular 3-1 with 1 imperial differential

Adminned at 23 Apr 2019 04:27:58 UTC

Append to Resources

At any time a Contractor may spend 3 different resources or 2 funds to gain 1 resource of any kind.

Append to Finance

At any time a contractor may gain 2 Investment to gain 1 Fund.

Change “Investment has a starting value of 10” to “Investment has a starting value of the average investments of all Contractors”

allowing players to gain funds in exchange for being less likely to win the game

Why do we need the resource exchange, though?

As it stands right now, bidding is the only way to get resources. While some of them are wildcards, it’s likely you’re going to get a project where you have dead weight resources. Also introducing a more expensive way to get any resource is useful when considering a bid: helping to prevent swings in the perceived value of Funds in relation to bidding.

An attempt to peg the value of funds to resources…

If you folks want it, I’ll play along. I do think resources by bidding only is more interesting. And valuing those dead weight resources is interesting play.  imperial

I think gaining Investments and Funds should be a 1:1 ratio, but otherwise I like this.
