A country where you can always get richer.

I'm talking w/ Facker in the discord and have found a few missed rules. First off, as this is the start of the game, this is PR 1 of 2. We then found, casting around as to why that matters, the rule that someone who's won an auction may not start a new one (though they can still bid in and win auctions started by some one else).
I should also restate that 0 is a legal bid.

OK, so CG gets NGC for 0. After he sets the par price et al, we've all won an auction, so we're all forced to pass, so we're onto the second parliamentary round. CD's still PD so CD to start an auction or pass.

I just checked and obligation checks at the end of the next Stock Round, and the only limit on selling is against shares you bought in that Stock Round. So I pay 10 to the bank and par L&E at 58, paying 232 for 4 shares.

Indeed. The first one ended because we all four had won an auction, so none of us could start one and so had to pass.

That takes us to the stock round. In SR's you can sell shares in lots to the bank pool, receiving the current market price for each share sold, then moving down that price one zig per share sold. The only limit on selling is you cannot sell shares you bought this round. Please, just remember what shares you bought this round, it's not marked on the sheet. When I said "only limit" I meant it. 100% of the company, including the president's share, can end up in the market. A company with no director is still operating, but in receivership and is limited in what it can do, and mostly buys up trains automatically.
You can also buy shares. You can buy a share from the IPO, the market, or the company. For IPOs you pay the par price to the bank, for market shares you pay the market price to the bank, and for company shares you pay the market price to the company.
You can also start a non-chartered company by buying the president's share from the IPO. You set the Par and Market price and transfer all the remaining shares to the company, who receive their present market value for the shares when they are bought from them. The par price is mostly ornamental. As they still need to sell 5 shares to operate, I don't see any advantage in non-chartered companies, especially with only 1 Operating Round in between SRs.
CD's still PD, so he starts.

e: also to clarify, you can both sell and buy in one turn, and you must do it in that order.

I need to buy a share in WVR to make sure it floats. I need 54 to do that, and I only have 14. Therefore I will sell 2 shares of Y&N at 34 and 32 each (half of 68 and 65 rounded down) since the company doesnt have a train. So 14+(34+32)-54 = 26.

I now have 3 stocks in Y&N and 5 in WVR. There are two Y&N stocks in the market.

Overall, doesnt look like a starting two companies right away was an ideal move!

Let me know if I missed any rules or anything while calculating and updating the spreadsheet.

FACKER

In talking with Mr Squishy on discord, I sell the two shares in Y&N as one block for 34 each, and then the share price lowers to 62. I have 28 total now and still 8 total shares.

I'd forgotten about the half-value thing for companies with no train. Anyway, buy 1 share of Y&N for 62.
