Title: Shipopoly
Post by: AvastMH on April 16, 2015, 06:27:38 pm
Hello All,
This is in no way intended to detract from our two very valuable word games. But, with streams of messages from Michael about the to-ing and fro-ings of the Concord, the idea of a certain game involving a 'GO' square came to my mind. So Michael and I proudly present SHIPOPOLY.  :D

Michael has put the images of the board, the Chance, the Community Chest, and the rules in his Dropbox. People can go to this link (https://www.dropbox.com/sh/th24toobrs80o3n/AADTe4ICdXug-sxOb7TZRgPba?dl=0) and download the images (they are in jpeg format - let me know if this is a problem!). That way we're not limited by the forum's size of images rule. You do NOT need to have nor to open a Dropbox account to get at the images.

When selecting a Chance or Community Chest card you will need to use a random number generator. This is a link to a random number generator for 16 cards here (http://numbergenerator.org/randomnumberbetween1and16). And, if you don't have a die handy, a random number generator for the numbers 1 to 6 is here (http://numbergenerator.org/randomnumberbetween1and6).  When taking a turn you will need to run this last one twice since the game requires two dice to be thrown for each move.

The finer details of how to run a game across the time zones is a bit knotty. And it might be worth thinking of a 'turn limit' (perhaps 20 goes each?) before totting up, unless we are all planning on living past 100 years of age  ::). What I'd suggest is that whoever plays banker makes the first entry in the thread, and uses the grid below to track the game. As each person takes their turn they need to add to the thread so that the banker can do the tracking. OR you can go without the grid and let chaos abound (well this is that type of game - I once sold all my property for the last half of a friend's icecream). And, of course, those other replies can be for the sheer enjoyment of visiting donkey boilers, bilge pumps and all sorts of exciting ports and places.  :D

If you spot any bloopers (I just spotted one on a Chance card - sigh!) then do let me know and I'll get that fixed.

Everyone starts with M1500.

   Let the frolic begin.

Anyone fancy a game?  :D

As the Secretary of the Navy, it is my job to keep track of who owns what, how much money each player has left, the player's positions and whose turn it is.
Each game is limited to four players to make it go faster and has a time limit of 30 days.

This game is over. I am currently taking a break until the 23rd, when we may or may not start another.

Rules for Shipopoly

Preparation
To begin with, each captain (player) selects a token and starts from GO. One captain becomes the Secretary of the Navy, who distributes assets from the Treasury to the captains. Captain can use only their money. If a captain is on leave and a second person has been delegated to act for them, the money for each captain is tracked separately even if one person is playing for two people. Money can be lent only via the Secretary of the Navy by a captain decommissioning (mortgaging) an asset. Money cannot be lent by another captain. Each captain receives $1,500 at the start of the game. The Secretary of Navy has an unlimited number of sailing ships and cruisers to sell to captains, and the Treasury never runs out of money. The Secretary of the Navy has personal assets as a captain which are separate from those of the Treasury. The Secretary of the Navy cannot get extra money for holding that position. When a captain passes GO the captain receives $200. The Secretary of the Navy keeps track of each captain's position on the board, and a record of the captain's assets.

General

The game is limited to a maximum of four captains.
Each captain uses a random number generator for two virtual dice (https://www.random.org/dice/?num=2) (or use two real dice), and then moves forward (clockwise around the board) the number of spaces indicated by the sum of the numbers. Action is then taken depending on the space on which the captain lands:


If a captain does not have sufficient funds to pay off a berthing fee or fees, the captain may take a loan from the Treasury by decommissioning one or more ports, or the captain may return a port, sailing ship or cruiser to the Treasury for the purchase price, or sell them to another captain for a mutually agreed upon price.

Captains may not loan money to other captains, only the Treasury can loan money, and then only by decommissioning ports, sailing vessels or cruisers.

Captains may take their turn in the current round in any order. If a captain's turn completes the round, the captain may start the next round immediately. A round is not completed until each captain has had a turn.

Doubles
When doubles are generated, the captain, after moving to the designated square and completing any actions or transactions, generates another number and moves again. If a captain generates three doubles in a row, the captain goes immediately to the dockyard and, therefore, does not enact the appropriate action of landing on the indicated square of the third double.

Dockyard
A captain can be directed to dockyard in three ways: by landing on the Go to Dockyard space, by drawing a "Go to Dockyard" Chance or Community Chest card or generating doubles three times in succession. In any of these cases, the captain moves directly into dockyard, without collecting the $200 for passing GO.

A captain in dockyard remains there until the captain does one of the following:


In any of these cases, the number generated on the turn on which the captain leaves dockyard is played out. However, in the second case, the power of the doubles is "used up" by bailing the captain out of dockyard, and so the captain does not get an extra turn. On the other hand, if the captain generates doubles in the first case, the extra turn is still granted.

While in dockyard, a captain may still buy sailing ships/cruisers, sell or buy ports, and collect berthing fees.

Ports, Berthing Fees, and Construction
A captain may sell a port or utility to another captain at any time, ships or cruisers included for any price agreed upon. A captain may return posts, cruisers, sailing ships or utilities back to the Treasury for the original price. The ports and utilities will be available for sale to the next captain to land on them. A captain may buy more than one sailing ship at a time in Shipopoly. Any captain may buy a port or utility from another captain, sailing ships or cruisers included. A captain can buy sailing ships and/or cruisers at any time as long as the captain owns all the ports in a color group, or the captain may buy up to two sailing ships for any port owned by him or her.  Ports are arranged in "color groups" of two or three ports. Once a captain owns all ports of a color group (a monopoly), the berthing fees are doubled on all unimproved lots of that color group, even if some of the ports are decommissioned to the Treasury, and the captain may purchase either one to four sailing ships or one cruiser (which is equivalent to five sailing ships) for those ports (as long as none of the ports of that color group are decommissioned to the Treasury), which raise the berthing fees that must be paid when other captain land on the port. The ports in a color group must be developed evenly, i.e. each sailing ship that is built must go on a port in the group with the fewest number of sailing ships on it so far. In another way of speaking, the number of sailing ships of any ports of a same color group must not differ by more than one. For example, sailing ships in a group may be distributed (2,3,2) or (0,1,1) or (4,4,3), but not (1,2,3) or (0,4,4).

A captain may have up to 1 Cruiser or 4 Sailing ships on a given port. 5 Sailing ships are equal to 1 Cruiser. Sailing ship prices are listed below.

A captain may put one or two Sailing ships on any property owned by him or her, whether or not all the captain owns all the ports in a colour group. A port may have more than two Sailing ships only when a single captain owns all the ports in that colour group. Sailing ships must be added to all the ports in a colour group evenly; i.e. one port may not have four Sailing ships while another port in the same colour group has only one Sailing ship.

A cruiser may be put on a color group only after all ports in the group have four sailing ships. A captain purchases a cruiser by paying the price of an additional sailing ship, and returning the four sailing ships on that port to the Treasury in exchange for a cruiser.

The Secretary of the Navy has an unlimited supply of sailing ships and cruisers to sell.

At any time a captain may, to raise cash, return cruisers and sailing ships to the Treasury for the decommission value listed below (half the price paid for them). Cruisers may also be "broken down" into a number of sailing ships for the corresponding percentage of their purchase price. For example, cruisers in one color group may be replaced by two sailing ships each, and for each cruiser thus broken down, the captain receives half the cost of three sailing ships. Also, ports with no sailing ships or cruisers may be decommissioned for half of the port price. A port does not collect berthing fees while decommissioned and may not be developed. To re-commission a port a captain must pay interest of 10% in addition to the decommission price. Whenever a decommissioned port changes hands between captains, either through a trade, sale or by bankruptcy, the new owner must immediately pay 10% interest on the decommission fees and at their option may pay the principal or hold the port. If the captain holds the port and later wishes to lift the decommissioning the captain must pay the 10% interest again as well as the principal.

Sharing the ownership of any port is strictly forbidden and results in the captains involved forfeiting the game with records showing a Dishonourable Discharge.

For being pulled of a mud bar or pulled off rocks, the captain must pay for every sailing ship and/or cruiser they own on the board.

Vessel/Ship and Utility Rent
The Vessel/Ships are:

The Utilities are:

The fees a captain owes for landing on a Vessel or Ship varies with the number of Vessels and/or Ships the owner possesses. The fees are as follows: Charge $25 if one owned, $50 if two owned, $100 if three owned, $200 if all owned by the same owner. If a captain get a Chance Card which says to advance to the nearest vessel or ship, the captain may either buy it if unowned or, if owned by another captain, the first captain must pay double what would normally be paid.

When a captain lands on the Donkey Boiler or Bilge Pump, the fee is ten times the amount of the roll that landed the captain there if both utilities are owned, or four times if only one is owned. One captain does not have to possess both in order the fees to be ten times the amount.

Crow's Nest cash
A captain who lands in the Crow's Nest collects the cash in the Crow's Nest pool, and the pool is restarted.

The pool is built by adding:


The pool starts with no money initially, and no money from the Treasury is put in after the cash in the pool is collected by a captain.

Going on Leave
If a captain needs to be away from the game for more than a day:


Sunk
When a captain has no assets remaining, the captain will be declared and recorded as Sunk.

Well... That was kinda disappointing. I was hoping for an all-out, no-surrender Battle of Gods, and Craig just went and sunk himself.

But wait - that means I WIN! Woo hoo hoo!

Hey, and now I get a free artwork from Caro as my prize!


Hear ye, hear ye!
                                                 

We have the great honor and pleasure of announcing that Caro has agreed to offer a custom made work of art to the winner of the forthcoming game of Shipopoly.
                                                 

The winner may choose the subject and the basic color scheme.

As subject, I hereby choose the HMS City of London (http://www.naval-history.net/OWShips-WW1-08-HMS_City_of_London.htm), one of my favorites among the RN ships.
For the basic color scheme, I humbly request a similar style to this, (http://forum.oldweather.org/index.php?topic=25.msg53110#msg53110) but with cerulean blue instead of orange/brown please.

I think it's fine the way it is. 200 per GO is not much when you consider that more than half the buyable properties cost at least 200.
And sure, it starts off slow but gets better as time goes by - which is how a good game should go!
Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: Craig on October 27, 2015, 06:09:21 pm
I won't be joining you this time but one observation from last time is that too many players leads to fragmentation of the colour groups. It was only when people began to drop out that this changed. I was lucky to get the most valued real estate early on and boost the cost of landing there to over 1000 M.  So I would recommend limiting the number of players to four.  You are right, Leelaht, that the penalties are pretty low until you can buy sails. Perhaps you should be able to buy up to two sails per property you own even if you don't own the entire group. This would be equivalent to your suggestion of raising the price. If you like long and potentially boring games, though, you should leave it the way it is and allow many players.

Those are pretty good ideas, Craig.
In that case, starting with round 3, it shall be like this unless anybody disagrees:

- Limit to 4 players
- If you don't own all of a color group, you can buy up to 2 sailing ships on those bits that you do own

Michael P, would you please update the rules?

all sounds good to me - let's give it a go with the new rules. I'm happy to go if you need someone to make up the four but I have to say that my plate is horribly full just now..see who wants to go in. Would we be interested to put in a time limit - how long did the last one last Hanibal?  :D

Leelaht deserves the credit for the idea since this is just a simple way of implementing her suggestion of raising the rents.

Done.

I added under General a rule that the game is limited to a maximum of four players, and in the section about ships I added:

Quote
A captain may put one or two Sailing ships on any property owned by him or her, whether or not all the captain owns all the ports in a colour group. A port may have more than two Sailing ships only when a single captain owns all the ports in that colour group. Sailing ships must be added to all the ports in a colour group evenly; i.e. one port may not have four Sailing ships while another port in the same colour group has only one Sailing ship.

I have an idea: Each game shall last for no more than 30 days.
When the 30 days are up, the player with the most assets (money, potential mortgage from owned properties and unused Get out of Jail cards) left shall be declared the winner.

How does that sound, folks?

So far, nobody has agreed to be the 4th player - but without a 4th player, we can't start another game!
Anybody wanna join? Pretty please?

According to the rules The game is limited to a maximum of four captains. (http://forum.oldweather.org/index.php?topic=4338.msg106867#msg106867)

So, why not play with three?

My brother and his best friend used to play original Monopoly with just two - and they'd set it up on our back porch and buy wads of extra pretend money because those games were very intense, lasted several days.  Certainly that game works well with two or three players.

Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: Hanibal94 on November 22, 2015, 12:41:39 am
ok.  Do we roll one dice to see who goes first?

I thought we would just follow the old system of rounds, where the particular order doesn't matter?
Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: Hanibal94 on November 22, 2015, 09:17:30 am
Oh wow - we're playing already!

Result of the dice: 1 + 1 = 2
You got a double!
You landed on Chest (South) and got card No. 3

Result of the dice: 3 + 4 = 7

Oh, and sorry leelaht, but Joan already has the lighthouse, so you can't have it unless she gives it up and takes something else.
Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: AvastMH on November 22, 2015, 11:45:48 am
Hi Leelaht - you can have the lighthouse - I'll be the dog this time around :)

My go ....  where's that rng...ah there... 5+1 = Manila - I'd like to buy that please :)

And I might as well start the next round so....

6+3 I move to Base Ship Tamar - and I'd like to buy that too :)
Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: Hanibal94 on November 22, 2015, 12:21:55 pm
Hi Leelaht - you can have the lighthouse - I'll be the dog this time around :)

Alright, it's done.
My turn:

Why do I still think of boiled donkeys every time I land here?
Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: AvastMH on November 22, 2015, 12:25:21 pm
I don't know - does it remind you of some boiled donkeys from your youth?  :o  I do hope that I am wrong!  ;D  I mean I hope no-one boils donkeys!  :o  And that you never met one  ::)
Time to shut up I think   ;) :D :-X
Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: Hanibal94 on November 23, 2015, 04:56:12 pm
Result of the dice: 1 + 5 = 6
You landed on Hong Kong


Regarding the Donkey Boilers - I would say it is the result of being literal-minded by default.
I also used to have a hard time understanding expressions, such as "swear on the good book".
The mental image I got from that was "Sit on The Cat in the Hat and say every bad word you know".

Good thing I never actually did that!

You would have upset a lot of librarians by sitting on books  :D

must be my go by now...

5 + 4 = 9 so I go to.... oh - what! We hardly own anything and I'm paying rent already - enjoy the income leelaht  :D

And off we go again...

4 + 4 = 8 so that's..you're kidding?  ;D We hardly own anything and I'm paying rent already - enjoy the income leelaht  :D

and that was a double so... 2 + 4 Ship's Refit - I'll buy that! Oh - okay - I'll pay that!  ::)

Post by: Hanibal94 on November 25, 2015, 05:06:36 pm
Oh wait - actually, you already took your turn for what would be this round, so the trip to Intrepid is invalid.
Sorry!
Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: Hanibal94 on November 25, 2015, 06:02:19 pm
OK, so you shouldn't have done the second turn in this post:

3+5... San Fernando, Hanibal gets M

and a new round
5+4... Hong Kong, Hanibal gets M

Joan started a new round and took her turn - see her post, the previous one.
Then you took your turn - but you also took a second one!
But I didn't realize the second was illegal until I had entered the details - so I've decided to make it your turn for THIS round, and therefore you don't end up on the Intrepid. Since I have taken my turn for this round, we're now waiting for Joan.
Please pay more attention - there's a reason I post the time of last update on the main page.

you got chips and dips - yummmmmmmy - I'm going to do my best to throw a double one on the next go - you could pass me some through the bars  ;D

If you get a Chance or Chest card, please clearly state the number of the card.

Receive M100 from all players who have not yet been caught by it, plus M200 from the Bank"? The Naval Fines Office may have to devoured whole by Moby Dick now that we have the Whalers on board  ;D

Isn't it nice to be the only one with three prime waterfront properties of the same colour, Leelaht? Sure brings in the cash!  And Joan is too poor to add any sails. I lapsed a bundle of cash last time. Too bad I can't give you some, Joan. And Hanibal has lots of properties but no complete colour. That's frustrating. I'm glad I didn't join this game or it would have been even more fragmented. ;D

Boys, boys!!  ;) ;) ;D

Right - I can fix the waterfront colour situation so it's a bit more exciting... Hanibal would you like to do a Hong Kong/ Singapore swap? Straight swap.  :D

Leelaht - have I got anything you'd like to have/swap etc?

I notice that we are all nearly penniless. Not that surprising with only 3 playing  :D
my go ... 1+6 = 7 so I move to the Bilge Pumps where my money goes to Leelaht, rather than down the drain  ;)

Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: Hanibal94 on December 12, 2015, 12:23:10 am
Yes, we got a new round.
Joan, I don't get the idea of swapping Hong Kong for Singapore - that doesn't change group ownership at all!

Result of the dice: 6 + 5 = 11
You landed on Chest (West) and got card No. 3
Pick up several hundred survivors from a sinking ship. Collect 200 $ Prize Money from the Bank.

Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: AvastMH on December 12, 2015, 12:29:51 pm
oopsie - wrote the wrong docks down. Proposed swap is Hong Kong/Pearl Harbor - oh hang on - just spotted something. In the 'usual' rules you can only buy houses once you own a street. I can't see that in our current rules. Well - we can think about it. As long as we all play the same rules it's a game  :)

my go  4+4 = 8 so squelch out of the bilge pumps to Chance East, Card 8: Oh no, I've been writing with the Bridge's flower vase water again.  I go to the Shore Leave space (Dry Dock Jetty) and miss my next turn

as I threw a double and should go again I think I miss that throw? Everyone happy with that? Or do I take my double-follow-on throw, but miss the next round? Doh!?!  :-\ :-\ :)

A captain may put one or two Sailing ships on any property owned by him or her, whether or not all the captain owns all the ports in a colour group. A port may have more than two Sailing ships only when a single captain owns all the ports in that colour group. Sailing ships must be added to all the ports in a colour group evenly; i.e. one port may not have four Sailing ships while another port in the same colour group has only one Sailing ship.

Don't you think we should expunge country-specific references in Chance and Chest.  ;D

No. I am American and I am the game boss, so I say we celebrate Independence Day (the proper name)! U-S-A! U-S-A!  ;D

Now, my turn - we has a new round.

oh right - got it! Yeh we could look for some non-country stuff. that's perhaps the trouble with being linked to an organiuzation paid for by a country i.e. a navy  :o ;D

Let's keep an eye out  :D

I'm really pleased that I've moved our Secret Santa game at the staff xmas lunch towards supporting Oxfam's Good Gifts which include support for mothers and babies. The lunch is held in the Old Library at St Mary's Church, Oxford, which is where Oxfam held its inaugural meeting  :D

All the Navy ships I've seen around here celebrate freely holidays and sovreign's birthdays for any nation whose port they are in, or whose ships are sharing the same port.  In the navy, if no where else, holidays cross national lines.  Just be sure UK and US and Canada and Australia and Germany are all included once.  Add other nations resided in by players. :)

OK, Joan asked me to take her turns from now on until the game ends, so I will.

First me:

Result of the dice: 3 + 2 = 5
You landed on Chemulpho


Joan: 2 + 4 = 6 -> San Fran.



New turn, so I go again:

Result of the dice: 6 + 4 = 10
You landed on Scapa Flow


Roll again for Joan: 4 + 2 = 6 -> Ship's Refit - I shall mortgage Dutch Harbor to pay for that, because that makes the most strategic sense, I think.

OK, first my turn:

Player went around Go!
You landed on Manila


Then Joan:

4 + 4 = 8 -> Manila
3 + 2 = 5 -> Ketchikan, buy that



Then new round, so me again:

Result of the dice: 6 + 4 = 10
You landed on Singapore


and Joan again:

2 + 5 = 7 -> Hong Kong
Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: Craig on December 21, 2015, 05:47:13 pm
I was wondering when you were going to do that, Leelaht. Going from 2 to 3 sails is the best investment in this game. There's a huge jump in rent between 2 and 3 sails, for some reason.
Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: Hanibal94 on December 21, 2015, 06:01:54 pm
Actually, leelaht just bought the first ship for those two spaces. The Canadian ones are the ones that already have 2 sails each.
Now, my turn:

Result of the dice: 1 + 3 = 4
You landed on Crow's Nest


and Joan:

3 + 5 = 8 -> Sydney



Then it's a new round, so I go again:

Result of the dice: 2 + 6 = 8
You landed on Bilge Pumps


and Joan:

3 + 4 = 7 -> Chest (East) -> 11 -> If you own the Donkey Boiler and/or Bilge Pump, pay 50 $ per unit for an upgrade.
Joan owns neither and pays 0.
Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: AvastMH on December 21, 2015, 07:33:30 pm
Here very briefly. Thanks for taking my goes for me hanibal! Hi leelaht! J. :D
Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: Hanibal94 on December 22, 2015, 03:33:57 pm
Sorry leelaht, but that last post doesn't count because the game ended on 1:00 am UTC today - and your post was more than 2 hours after that.
I would have mentioned this earlier, but I had to take a very long trip up to Sweden to join the rest of the family, who are already there - I had to stay back because of an oral exam yesterday (which went very well!)

The trip was quite a hassle - had to get up at 3:30 am, then take a tram, a train, a bus, a plane, a train and finally a bus.
These were all rather short things, but it does add up:

(http://pre14.deviantart.net/be4d/th/pre/f/2015/219/d/e/derp_goes_to__murica_by_underpable-d94o4z1.png)

(http://pre02.deviantart.net/39ec/th/pre/i/2015/219/9/2/26_hours_later_by_underpable-d94ocw4.png)

(At least there's no jetlag to deal with!)



Now, time to add up the booty - bank account, then money from selling ships, then mortgage from all the properties. Nobody has Get-out-of-Jail cards.

Me Myself: 596 in cash, 200 from ships, 985 in property -> 1781 total
leelaht: 635 in cash, 700 from ships, 795 in property -> 2130 total
Joan: 62 in cash, 50 from ships, 790 in property -> 902 total

OK then - leelaht wins! Congratulations!
Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: AvastMH on December 22, 2015, 06:42:31 pm
Woo! Great game! ;D
Well done leelaht, followed by well done Hanibal. And, hey, I managed to come third...who would have guessed it? ;) ;) ;)


Looks like your journey was not 'the pony express', Hanibal...love the cartoons :D glad that the exam went well. Now you can relax for Christmas :D
Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: Hanibal94 on December 23, 2015, 11:38:23 am
Nope, it was not "pony express" - or any other express. What a shame.

Now I'm on vacation, so there won't be any more games getting started - not until January. See you until then - if you already want to take part in the next one, you can go ahead and sign up for it here.
Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: Hanibal94 on January 06, 2016, 05:29:48 pm
OK, now that vacation's over and everybody's gotten back to "reality", I think we can start a new game. I've refreshed the player's table.
But first, we should discuss this:

Going from 2 to 3 sails is the best investment in this game. There's a huge jump in rent between 2 and 3 sails, for some reason.

Craig has a good point here - maybe this should be changed so the jumps from one level to the next are roughly equal? What do you guys think?
(Comments from non-players are welcome too!)

Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: AvastMH on January 06, 2016, 11:15:43 pm
I think we've been fiddling with the game rules to make the game go more quickly, and this rule doesn't help, so I say give more credit for the early sails rather than the later sails.  I've not studied the patterns to see if rent is matched to sail price or to port purchase price.  There should be some logical way to establish the rent levels.

*******

Do old players need to erase prior posts?  Or can they be deleted in one fell swoop, as seemed to be the case in setting up for the previous game?

Absolutely agree with you leelaht - thanks! :D Hanibal - well spotted - let's fix it as leelaht suggests - can I leave you to put the figures in then, please?  :D

Can't wait for...another chance to lose  ;) ;) ;D
Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: Hanibal94 on January 07, 2016, 09:20:53 am
OK, I took a look, and it seems the only really constant thing is that buying the very first sail increases the rent by 500% - and even then, there are exceptions.
So I suggest the following:

- Basic rent (no ships) stays the same, along with this rule: If you own all 3 ports in a group, the rent is doubled for all of the ones without any ships on them.
- The four special vessels and the Bilge Pumps and Donkey Boilers stay the same
- The increases in rent go like this: 0 sails to 1 is 500%, 1 to 2 is 300%, 2 to 3 is 200%, 3 to 4 is 150% and 4 to cruiser is 125%. All are with rounding.
So for Ketchikan, it would go like this:
01234cruiser
1050150300450563

So, how does that sound?

Can't wait for...another chance to lose  ;) ;) ;D

OK, you're in. Want to keep the same token, Joan?
Title: Re: Shipopoly
Post by: AvastMH on January 07, 2016, 06:15:58 pm
Good thinking hanibal and leelaht...I'm in for the new rules :)  I'll keep the same token thanks :)  (Why am I doing this - poverty, and dinner only when leelaht leaves chips and dips in the brig, and then a drowning  ::) ;) ;D )

The game will last 30 days - whoever has the most money after then wins.

Hi Hanibal94,

If no-one else wants a go after 24 hours, you can count me in.

24 hours passed, and nobody else has signed up - so you're in, Michael! What token would you like?

I'll take the Captain's hat. The only way I'll get one, I think.

From GO: Throwing 5 + 6 = 11 => Ketchikan

I'll buy it. (In Juneau on the Patterson at the moment, so it would be a handy place to own).

Sorry, yes to buying Famagusta. In the old days you always noted when you paid rent. I assumed you did. You also had a list of properties that were bought and who owned them and those properties still unsold. I can't remember where that list was.  (Old brain, weak mind)  ;)

You don't have to pay - you get out automatically next round. That's how we did it in the past.
Update the rules please, Michael!

6+1 (pass go) land on Alacrity, which appears to be available... so I'll risk a purchase.

Actually, you were on Scapa Flow, so a 7 from there takes you to Manila, and you pay 6 sand dollars to Joan.
This means your 5 in the next round takes you to Ketchikan - pay more dollars to Mike.

Nope. Still stuck.

OK.

So, you go to dockyard and pay $50 to get out right away, or your throw for three turns. If you get a double, you're out with no payment. If you don't get doubles after three turns, you're out for free. Is that right?

Let me know, and I'll fix it.

I am glad to see that the rules are being punctiliously applied - any flaunting and we'll have to instigate bread and water rations, double irons, loss of pay. The first three are difficult, but reducing our pay is...hang on...we don't get any pay here  :o ;D ;D ;D

You landed on New York

Sorry Joan, but you don't get to go this round because of that Chance card. That's why you're still blue.

Let's see what else can move around...back in a moment. Michael would you like to buy Dutch Harbor at all please? I'd be looking for the full price - M160 but it does give you a shipyard :)

Any other offers from anyone interested in my excellent berths?  :D

My go:
5+5 = 10 so I go to San Fran and give Michael some money so that he might want to buy Dutch Harbor (not a hint  ;))
Another go for a double 2+5 so I move to Scapa Flow - home waters - hurrah!

Starting the next round:
1+2 = 3 so I move to Community Chest and get number 12 whereby I rescue the Royal Navy with chocolate and am rewarded with M100 from the Bank

Happy Birthday, Joan!!!!

And, just for you, I will buy Dutch Harbor! I will also put two ships on Iloilo, please. So, Mr. Banker, this is NOT a move.

4+3... Bilge Pumps, that's Hanibal's and should cost me M28 which I can still afford.

Actually, it's 70 dollars, because both Bilge Pumps and Donkey Boilers are owned by someone, so you pay 10x the roll of the dice, even if both are not owned by the same person.

3+1... New York, owned by Hanibal and beyond my cash reserves

start by selling Donkey Boilers.  Can I get a bank statement before selling off more properties?

Actually, you land on San Francisco, which is owned by Michael (Darn it! I was looking forward to more cash!).
And as I explained before: If you don't mortgage/sell enough stuff by yourself to pay off your debt, I will choose for you.
So in this case: I sold off your ships on Shanghai and Chemulpho, and mortgaged Vancouver. That makes just enough to pay off your debt to Michael.



Now for my turn.

Result of the dice: 4 + 3 = 7

Nope. Still stuck.



New round!

Result of the dice: 2 + 2 = 4
You got a double!
You landed on Dutch Harbor


Money to Mike.

Result of the dice: 5 + 6 = 11
You landed on Intrepid

Quote
A captain in dockyard remains there until the captain does one of the following:

    opts to pay a $50 bailout to the Treasury, or spend a "Get out of Dockyard Free" card before generating the numbers;
    generates doubles; or,
    fails to generate doubles on the captain's third turn in dockyard, in which case the $50 charge is not levied, and the captain gets to leave.


In any of these cases, the number generated on the turn on which the captain leaves dockyard is played out. However, in the second case, the power of the doubles is "used up" by bailing the captain out of dockyard, and so the captain does not get an extra turn. On the other hand, if the captain generates doubles in the first case, the extra turn is still granted.

So, if I understand it, this was your third try, so you get out, and you land on Crow's Nest. You have also finished the round, so you may as well go again.

Of course, if I am mistaken, I am sure someone will set both of us straight.  ;)

From GO: Throwing 6 + 5 = 11 => Ketchikan
Ketchikan is owned by me. Hooray!

3+2... wait, I was on Alacrity not Scapa Flow

Oops, so you were. Thanks for noticing!

Result of the dice: 2 + 4 = 6
You landed on Esquimalt


My land. Safe.

OK - the game is supposed  to end in an hour, but I'll change that: As soon as Joan takes her turn, thus ending the round, the game will end as well.
I will then count everybody's cash, properties and other assets, and see who has the most.

Right then!!! Big breath - the last roll of the dice

and it's 4+4 - a double - that's fun  :D  so I move to Alacrity and it's more cash to hanibal and thanks for the overnight bunk  :D

and another go. Oh weird - another double

3+3 so I move to Ketchikan so money for Michael and I go again

6+4 so I move to Halifax so a second set of Ms to Michael   :D

And that seems to conclude the game. Hanibal - you're the Secretary of the Navy so it's over to you to count our various riches. Speaking personally this has been a great victory because for the first time I didn't drown  ;D 8) ;D

That's true - but you came close. I had to mortgage EVERYTHING YOU OWN so you could pay off the debts to me and Michael that you got in your last turn.

Now to count it all up, and see who wins:

Hanibal94Joanleelahtmapurves

Property173070510201330
Ships600001050

Total572581412933190

Okay - I win! Woohoo!
Looks like hoarding all my cash towards the end really did pay off! ;D

And just to say that I'm amazed and still pleased not to have drowned - though it was a closer run thing than I thought.  :D

I'm in no hurry to start another game.  I've got 3, 3!, futurelearn and Edx classes I've neglected, and maybe, maybe, I'll compel myself to finish them instead of rolling virtual dice and sailing virtual vessels.

I, too, don't need the distraction. I think we should let Hanibal end on a winning note!
