Create a new rule named “Card Auction” as follows:

Twice per week, if a Wizard has at least one card, they may put it up for “auction”. Other wizards may choose cards in their hand to trade for the card. Over the course of the auction, the original wizard may choose to change cards or add additional cards for auction. Once the original wizard has found a deal satisfying them, they may say “Seal deal x”, where x is the name of the wizard they accept the deal of. If x agrees with “Seal deal”, the trade off is then complete and the wizards swap their cards they chose. If one of the cards is played before the swap is complete, the trade is negated, and the original wizard can chose another deal to seal.

What happens at the “swap their cards” point if one or both of the wizards has already played their card before the trade is complete?

I will add “the trade is negated if one of the cards is played”

against This gives no mechanism for conveying all the auction-related info (blogpost/comment/GNDT/wikipage/PM…).

At one point, there’s ‘say “Seal deal x”’ - despite say being a colloquialism for ‘write’, it would be legal for cunning Wizards to literally _say_ “Seal deal x”, making it impossible for other Wizards to tell which deal they have sealed.

against the auction never close unless the person holding the auction seals a deal. That would be very tricky since there could be a large number of open auctions which don’t close for a long amount of time.
