CHF is somehow 1:1 with JPY so, at a glance, it seems "obvious" that you're ahead... but that's a lot of maths to make sure of it.

e: like, all currencies you own a lot of are 1:1 with JPY, so yeah it's looking good for you.

Squishy can't win if he goes bankrupt.

e: What's going on with that loan? Doesn't the value @ time of loan get converted into the higher currency? I should have asked this before, but I didn't notice until now.

If Lecher had a GBP cert to divest, or if Jordan was behind Numbers, I could piggyback... But c'est la vie.

Turn 59
Divest 1 GBP

It's very brief: it says the amount is added to the existing loan. Doesn't mention conversion.

Unless I'm mistaken, whenever a loan is created, you take whichever currency you were supposed to be "paying" and you just add one unit of that currency. This applies regardless of if it's stronger or weaker. I will double-check though.

e: the reason there's a second currency there is because Squishy had to take a second loan before paying back the first one.

My mis-reading of the loans rule was that the contract markers just got pooled together, which I felt very proud for implementing in Vassal. Ah well.

Yeah that's what I thought it was.

Am I missing something? According to the rules there should be 8 certificates for each currency, but the columns for USD and CNY only add up to 6. As in, it looks like there should be 2 more certificates available for each?

6 random certs are removed from the game at start. I actually screwed up at one point and accidentally re-added one of them (and noticed too late, so I just let it fly).

Okay, I just did the draw. We have the following players:

2. Some Numbers
3. Mr. Squishy
4. Lecher
Y'all can start playing immediately. I'll clear the spreadsheet in a few minutes (for clarity, everyone starts with 2 bucks of each currency). I just now also selected what certificates are removed from the game:
CNY
USD
GBP
EUR
CNY
USD

This is where it happened. And around turn 40, the EUR one got un-removed by accident.

Of course. I was thinking they would show up in the removed column but I guess they were technically never in the game to begin with.

edit: removed illegal move.
