Default Fri Morning Turbo Game: Pog Auction

This is a Turbo game with 15 quick rounds; it should take <1.5 hours

I'd like to get 4-6 players in on this, but we can take up to 9 (after that, we'd just play ww)


The Game:

Each round a random number generator will tell us a pog worth somewhere from -5 to 10. Everyone then bids on that pog and the winner gets that point value for the round. Whomever has the most points after 15 rounds wins.

How it works:

Each player can bid 1-15 in a round via pm to me (moderator). You may only bid each value once per full game, so if you bid 10 in round 1, you can't bid 10 again.

Clashing: If 2+ players bid the same amount, their bid is null and void that round (and they still lose the ability to ever bid that amount as well)




Please post if you want to play and if you need any clarifications.


I'm in; I can mod and play

I'm confused.

There's a random value selected for a round. Whoever bids the highest, gets that point value? If 2 people bid the same, they cancel each other out. If 2 people bid 15, and 1 14, does the person who bid 14 get the points?

I'm in, btw.

zurvan, yes whoever bids the highest by themselves wins the point value

so 2 15s and a 14, the 14 wins since the 15s clashed

Important Rule:

Whoever bids the LOWEST on negative values wins that Pog...so a bid of 1 would win it over a bid of 15...that way everyone doesn't all bid 1 for negative numbers and clash and not have to take the negative value

So the value of it can be 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10? And you can bid 1 to 15. Bids of 1-4 and 11-15 are 'null' bids?
