I will post the Main Match in the morning. Any transferring of garnets has got to be done before the Main Match is posted.

I will now introduce the 9th Main Match.

The 9th Main Match is "Minus Auction".

In Minus Auction, there will be an auction of minus numbers and the player with the lowest minus number will win the match.

Number cubes ranging from "-3" to "-28" will be auctioned.

Using Random.org, the players will be determined their turn order.

Each player will start the game with 10 chips and these chips will be used when declining to bid.

Minus number cubes will be drawn randomly and put up for auction one at a time.

When a number cube is drawn, the players will have to decide whether to bid or pass on that number in order.

If you do not want to bid for the current number, you must pass and pay 1 chip.

If you pass, the next player wil then have to decide to bid or pass on the chip.

If you have no chips, you may use your garnet instead of a chip to pass on a bid.

If you wish to take a number cube, you will state your intent of bidding on it.

When a number is taken, you will also receive the chips and garnets that were used to pass on it.

Then, the next auction will begin and a new number will be randomly drawn and revealed.

The auction will then continue with the previous buyer.

When all the number cubes have been auctioned off, the minus numbers you bought will be added up.

You will also receive ONE point for every remaining chip that you have at the end of the auction when calculating your final score.

Garnets will not be included in the final score.

If the numbers you bought were "-17" and "-20" and you had 5 chips remaining, your final score will be "-33".

However, if you bought consecutive minus numbers, only the number with the lowest absolute value will be counted.  

For example, if you have "-4" and "-5", along with "-17", "-18", "-19" and "-20" and 3 chips, only "-4" and "-17" will be counted. The total score including the chips would be "-18" then.

By using this, you could minimise your minus number even after taking a lot of numbers.

However, there is something you must be careful of.  

Before the auction begins, one number will be randomly removed and not be put up for auction. It will be removed and only be revealed after the game ends.

Numbers and chips cannot be traded with or given to other players.

The player/s with the lowest minus score at the end will win and the player/s with the highest minus score will be the Death Match candidates.

The winner will receive 5 garnets. Every other player, excluding the elimination candidate, will win 2 garnets.

Using Random.org, I will now post the turn order of the auction.

1) Nat
2) Pete
3) Mets
4) Tomcat
5) Sam

The auction will start tonight at 730 PM EST.

Hi Mas ,

So there are 25 cubes in total ?

If we win a "number" , we get the garnets and chips used to pass , do we also get the chips that were "bids" from other players ?

How do we bid ? with chips or garnets, or both ?

u use either a chip or a garnet to pass. the more chips u have at the end, the better. cos it be added to the total of your cubes.

when u win a number, you will get all the chips and garnets that the other players used to pass.

there are 26 cubes, but 1 will be taken out of play randomly.

Slight amendment to the rules:

Numbers and chips still cannot be given or exchanged. Garnets, however, won't fall under this rule.

if you run out of both chips and garnets, you cannot bid anymore unless you are given garnets by someone else.

you use your chips and garnets to pass. if you want the number, you just have to say you want it when it's your turn. there's no bidding for it.

what happens if you end up with a positive score ? i.e you have the numbers -5 -6 -7 , but you still have 6 chips left ? your final score will be +1

yes, once the auction starts, each player will go around passing until someone decides to bid and take the number. i will then update the number of chips, garnets as well the number each player is holding before i reveal the next number for bidding.

and if u have a positive score, it's ok. but i think the chances might be low.

If I say yes and take a number , then I'm first to bid or pass on the next number yes ?

What if a player ends up with no numbers at all ? his/her score will be 0 , yes ?

yes, then it would be 0. anyway, i'm sorry, you need to get at least a -1. so, you have to plan it out if you happen to get more than that.

no, we will keep passing until somebody eventually decides to take that number. so just be warned that this challenge might take some time.

Okay, you need a negative number to at least be in the running. Therefore, if you get any positive number, you are automatically a Death Match candidate. Consider that when you are bidding and passing.

Mets: 10 chips, 19 garnets
Tomcat: 10 chips, 19 garnets
Sam: 10 chips, 8 garnets


We will start off with Number #1:

-19

Nat, please indicate whether you are passing with a chip, a garnet or bidding on it.
