22 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: kaner406 (Gamedirector): (kaner406): Welcome to Bourse 2018! I'll repost the Bourse rules in a tick
22 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: kaner406 (Gamedirector): (kaner406): The rules are:

1) A Diplomacy Bourse is associated with a Diplomacy game, and runs parallel with it.

2) Any number of players may participate. Each begins with 1000 units of currency of each country in the game: Austrian Crowns, English Pounds, French Francs, German Marks, Italian Lire, Russian Roubles and Turkish Piastres. All currencies are equal at the start, each being worth $1 US. Throughout the game the value of currencies is expressed in Dollars.

*However due to the nature of vDip the players themselves will compete in the variant, so if there are 10 players who want to give this a shot then Modern will be the variant played

3) Orders are in two parts, buying and selling. Players may never sell more than 500 units of any one currency at one time, but may buy as many as he may afford. Any surplus after purchases may be retained as a Dollar balance against future purchases. There is no limit to the number of dollars that may be withdrawn from this balance at one time, but it may never go into deficit.

4) Each time 100 units of a currency are sold its value in relation to the dollar drops 1¢. Thus if in the first season the total of all orders results in 500 more Marks being sold than bought the price of the Mark for the following season would be $0.95. Each time an aggregate of 100 units is bought the price rises similarly by 1¢. Only complete multiples of 100 units affect the price - thus if 299 more Marks were bought than sold its value would rise by only 2¢.

5) Each season the GM will list who bought and sold what, old and new prices, players' holdings and Dollar surpluses, and their net worth.

6) When a country is eliminated from the Diplomacy game (i.e. when its Winter supply centre holding is 0), the value of its currency drops to zero and all trading in that currency ceases. Other than this, the value of a currency may never fall below 1¢. There is no upper limit to the value of a currency.

7) When the associated Diplomacy game ends, each Bourse player's "Victory Points" will be calculated as follows: for each currency in which he has a holding, the number of blocks of 100 units of currency multiplied by the number of supply centres owned by that country in the Diplomacy game. Thus if Turkey wins with 18 centres, with France on 14 and England on 2, and a player has 6000 Pounds, 10,000 Piastres and 4000 Francs, then his VPs would be 120+1800+560 = 2480. The GM will endeavour to maintain running totals of Victory Points during the middle and end game.

8) Orders may not be made conditional. If orders are incorrect or illegal, the GM will adjust them in accordance with what he discerns to be the player's wishes. Players are asked to check adjudications for errors, since the Diplomacy game will not normally be delayed on account of Bourse errors. Players are also requested (but not required) to include details of their calculations with their orders.

_______

Additional rules for making this work:

i) I will be the GM on the board for the purposes of publishing the results
ii) The GM will not pause or extend the game, this is up to the players themselves and the vote buttons are there for this purpose
iii) I will make a spreadsheet available to each player (or they can make their own one for the purpose of the game)
iv) Retreats and builds phase is Rulebook press. This means that you will not be able to communicate with one another during retreats and builds. Please consider waiting until the bourse is published before readying your orders.
v) Players will PM me their Bourse orders, given that I won't be an active player on the board, only GMing the Bourse.
23 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: kaner406 (Gamedirector): (kaner406): Gents I will be changing the phase type to standard, to allow discussion during the build and retreats phase. The trade off is that I will set those phases to 24 hours after the bourse is published. This should provide both a reasonable pace to the game, as well as give you all more discussion time for the bourse discussions when the bourse results are published.
23 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: kaner406 (Gamedirector): (kaner406): (also I'll upload a spreadsheet for you all, just as soon as I know who draws which country)
27 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: (Technostar): @All
I will be on vacation in a foreign country from Wednesday through Saturday. I'll have access to this site through my phone (but only on WiFi). However, since early-game Bourse is so reliant on negotiations and the mobile interface is not very good for chatting, could I request that the first phase not process until Sunday or Monday?
27 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: (The Ambassador): Seeing its Easter this weekend and folks are probably going away (me included on a lovely little camping trip) I'm cooling with holding the start over a small bit.
27 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: (RUFFHAUS 8): Agreed, let's start sometime next week
27 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: (YouCan'tHandleTheTruth): It'll wait.
27 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: (Argentinean Empire): Negotiations before the game begins are not allowed :)
27 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: (ubercacher16): I'm fine with waiting... provided you help me solo technostar. oh, wait.
27 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: (ubercacher16): ;)
27 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: (YouCan'tHandleTheTruth): Buy pesos! If we all buy pesos we'll be rich!
27 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: (Mr. Finkelmuiyer): I thought we were buying BitCoin?
27 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: (YouCan'tHandleTheTruth): You wanna prop up that dog?
27 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: (Argentinean Empire): In Soviet Russia, pancake eat you.
27 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: (Spartan22): *блин ест тебя*
30 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: The last poor sod has joined.. (oh wait, that’s me) so we can get that pause now. Probably a good idea to set to no press for now as well so those who are not able to play over the weekend aren’t at a disadvantage coming late to the press side of things.
30 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: kaner406 (Gamedirector): I'll also need to get the spreadsheet all finalised and posted for all of you
31 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 901: kaner406 (Gamedirector): Spring 901
