How badly do you need this? Because dealing with somebody who isn't a fucker tends to save a lot of time and effort overall, plus being willing to walk or at least having options gives you a better position of strength.

If you HAVE to make a deal with this guy my only tip is to try to hope you can grab a discount by doing something different - in manufacturing and purchasing some pretty common negotiating points are discounts for cash up front payments as opposed to 30 days billable and holding product offsite but available for <3 day delivery. Essentially the negotiations there are negotiating based on different values assigned to perks from each party, and trying to use cash as an approximation of this. Broaden scope of the deal if possible.

These are my hot negotiating tips.

Never waste effort on a dumbass. Find a deal that works or walk, don't spend time being unproductive.

Unless the other party is in Jersey, then that's part of the deal making process.

You don't get to pick and choose real estate agents unfortunately, the owner does that.

Then back to the second part and my next hot tip is to become the owner so you can choose your own real estate agent.

I actually have a small newbie-friendly game I might put up later this week or early next week. Matrix6, so it's only nine players, not one of my unnecessarily-over-researched time period games. More just a gag idea that didn't let go.

I'd be interested in this one too since I suspect either I'll be out of the first game or it'll be over by then

All this talk of creative works and self-doubt is the perfect segway into this:
[Mafia] Poisoned! the Novelization in case you were following that thread and wanted to see more of the behind the scenes what dumb messages I was sending everyone and how awful my writing skills are, now strung together into one coherent story! With some more pictures and an alternate ending. All of which took way too long. :P
And I really wish I had come up with a more interesting title for that thread...

Also, I have an idea for an open-setup role-madness Overwatch game for 21 players (all the characters). I might host it soon (despite telling myself and some others that I was done with Mafia for a while).
It's open setup, so anyone can look at it and tell me it's terrible and still join in.
It won't be flavor-heavy so I don't end up writing more silly novels and wasting so much time on not-homework.
