Just keep the 8 rider roster?
I don't see a reason to skip this rule.

I realized it is a huge risk if there ever is a race with only 2-3 active people.
It would destroy the game completely.
(In TdF, do I keep my $30 Quintana, or go after your $40 Froome?)

I meant
Keep the 8 rider roster and higher the min bet.
Totally agree with 30-50-70!

Everybody has a certain responsibility in this game.
Not being obliged to play every race off course, but if only 2-3 guys play the TdF, then the game is already destroyed!
(If only 3 players play the 1 million dollar poker tournament in the casino, the game and casino are destroyed too)
Nothing wrong with making early bets, before going on holliday f.e.

With 30-50-70, I feel confident simplifying the rules elsewhere. Makes your lives easier.

That is my challenge as a game designer: to create something that works for 2 or 22 people all the same.

The main UCI-game wouldn't be playable with only 2-3 managers either in his actual format. So don't be to harsh on yourself.
Playing with 2-3 or 20 is mostly so fundamently different ...
Playing poker with 3 or with 100 is also totally different ...

From all the games, I like this one the most I think. So you did a good job as a game designer.  :winner:

Oh crap, sorry about that. I should have warned you. I guess after years of NBA fandom it simply got automatic inside my head that you guys change the time on the wrong weekend :doh:

New small rule
« Reply #47 on: May 09, 2018, 08:37:10 AM »
Given recent feedback on how anti-climatic it feels when certain people (that would be moi) monopolize entire races, starting as of now we're limiting everybody to half the field among non-minimum bids. Meaning e.g.: if 17 Tour of California riders are being auctioned, 7 of which remain at the level of 50, nobody can have the current highest bid on more than 5 among the remaining 10.

Minor remarks:
- Again, we completely ignore minimum bids. It's necessary so that we can start auctions freely.
- Assumption: three+ semi-active people at all times.
- Three objectives: added benefit of starting minimum auctions yourself AND a bigger chance of keeping your favourite riders even if somebody decides to bid like crazy AND a less catastrophic outcome if only one person turns up at the dreaded 10pm.

Small correction in wording: the original one didn't make sense because at the beginning there are zero non-minimum bids. Let's write it down again:

You can place as many minimum bids (30 for classics, 50 of tours, 70 for grand tours) as you wish.
You can only place higher bids as long as the total number of auctions you'll then be leading won't exceed half the total number of auctions.
E.g.: if 17 Tour of California riders are being auctioned, nobody can have the current highest bid on more than 8 of those.
