Icons, players and starting spice. Current turn order from top to bottom.


#7

Very useful. I hadn’t realised the Atreides were as rich as me to begin with!


#8

You’re about to get an unholy amount richer if this goes like any other Dune game I’ve played…


#9

Oh, I’m counting on it. Great wealth makes up for incompetence, right? :smile:


#10

Atreides pass


#11

Bene Gesserit - Pass

Next card:

Bene Gesserit - 2 spice


#12

@Oly you dont start the the second bid; I think @RossM does


#13

Does the bidding for the first card not continue until we go round the ‘table’ back to the highest bidder without their bid being topped?


#14

No I think once you pass you are out of the round.
@IsAnythingReal ok!


#15

Pass


#16

Oh and if anyone wants to involve me in super conspiracies, PM me.


#17

I would assume that once you pass you are out (but we should confirm). With that said on this first card, the Emperor still has the ability to outbid BG.

And my understanding of the rules is that once we are done with the first card, then we rotate and the Guild gets first bid on the 2nd card, etc. It’s pretty clear in the rules that in each treachery round, each player gets to start the bidding on one card.


#18

Emperor outbid the BG on first card already, and everyone has passed except emperor.


#19

Yep, sorry, I missed that.

So yes, I assume the Guild will then have the starting bid on the 2nd card.

Also, I’ll need to wait on my bid until I see it. (Love the prescience)


#20

I’m not sure what’s better, your ability to know the cards or the emperor getting so rich that they can just buy them all anyway…
