Proposal: Adventure Capital

Self-killed. Failed by Kevan.

In “Finance”, replace “Investment has a starting value of 10” with “Investment has a starting value of 0”.

To “Finance”, add:-

If a Delivery exists and the Contractor has not already done so during that Delivery’s existence, that Contractor may seek Investment. Upon doing so, they may choose a number from 1 to X (where X is equal to 10 plus their Publicity), and increase both their Investment and Funds by that amount.

Set every Contractor’s Investment to zero.

Per comments on Small Loan, maybe Investment could function as a loan system.

The investment acquisition mechanism is solid: provisional green-tick.  I love the way it slowly dolls out cash.

I worry about setting investment to 0 though. A player could only increase their investment once, to $1B, and do nothing for the rest of the game to get a ROI of 10.00. This number should be nearly impossible for a fair player to beat. $10B investment-free at the start of the game breaks the scoring system. This could be fixed by setting funds to $0B or leaving investment at $10B.

We can fix the free $10B later.
