Aidan, is there anything else you wish to do on your turn? Especially considering you now have a rather handy 26750 points.[/QUOTE]

:D

May i suggest spending your 15000 points on a facelift. Sandra would be happy.

Very possible, you're now the first owner of two clubs.

I'm assuming that's it for your turn, so over to [B]Moon McNamee[/B], who rolls a.. 5! Which moves him nicely round to a point based event of his own. Do you wish to risk it?

This of course means you pick up the 10000 points that comes with it. Anything to be done on this turn?

[CENTER][B]Arthur Bach[/B] is next, and he rolls a 4. No special events for him but it does mean that there are no more than one player on any one square as of yet.[/CENTER]

[B]coldkohmew[/b] - Do you wish to do anything this turn?

Alright, well in that case, we move on to...

[CENTER][B]Mike Jablonski[/B], who rolls a 4. Nothing doing for him event wise, but with a bit in the bank, is there anything you wish to do, [B]spartans5[/B]?[/CENTER]

Hey dave you still alive...im itching to get to my turn.

Also had an idea that prehaps you could roll everyone at once, and then send PMs to ask if they want the card or not.

May make things faster as everyone would have a pm in their box, and could reply whenever, then you could send the replies back.

Then again may make it more complicated for you.

I don't know.....all i know is im itching to get my turn

I quite like this idea, as it would possibly move things along faster. One hurdle that would need to be overcome, though, would be that of everyone acting simultaneously when the turns aren't simultaneous. How do you get around the idea of person 4th on the go and person 10th on the go trying to buy the same unowned club? obviously the person earlier in the turn would be able to buy it, but would you then have to get person 10 to re-do their turn?

I know what you mean, this format will take a while. The only problem is that when people start to use their points more on each turn and buy clubs etc, having everyone have their turn simultaneously could get really confusing. It might have to happen though, I agree.

Haha, yeh i realised after i posted.

Just i started the post, then got called out at work, so had to go do a job, came back and had to finish the post. :)


Anyways i don't know if it would be possible, but i was thinking more like this.

[B]Dave posts everyones rolls. Asks everyone to PM their decision regarding do they take a card , if they landed on a points/events space[/B]

[B]Dave waits for all the replies and then posts a summary on the forum, such as;[/B]

"Coach Crane landed on a points card but decided not to take a risk, what will his next move be,
Arthur Bach also landed on a points card but took the risk and unfortunatley misfiled his tax returns and loses 5000 points" Etc
Then he asks everyone to post their move for that turn, if they are buying other clubs, or pumping money into the club, hiring managers etc.

[B]Dave waits for all the replies and then posts summary on the forum such as;[/B]
"Coach Cranes turn first and he decided to put all of his remaining points (9750) into the reading bank balance, lets see if that pushes them into a promotion spot.
Arthur Bach went next and decided to not do anything after recently being fined, prehaps to hide from any media backlash" Etc




Just my ideas, if they are rubbish then its cool, but either way loving the idea and thread

I think we'll finish this round as is, and then try the all-at-once method. It can't be any worse, surely?

[CENTER]Alright then, we move on to [B]Kieran Hayden[/B], who picks up his die and rolls a... 3! A club based event for him, but does he want to take it?[/CENTER]

[QUOTE]The Government introduces a points tax to help reduce the deficit. Pay 10000 points[/QUOTE]

The first of our negative point based events, a shame for Long Tym Toon but his business rivals are probably secretly (or not so) delighted. With a negative points balance I'm sure there's not much left for this turn...

[CENTER]It's [B]Stefan Guillermo[/B] next, and he rolls a 3. Would you like to risk the club based event?[/CENTER]

Coach Crane would like to announce the takeover off Preston North End. :)

Hoping that two teams will serve him better in being the first promoted championship side.

This may bring him down to a measley points total but you have to speculate to accumulate.:applause:

It's [B]Uncle Scrooge[/B] now, and he follows up that new purchase by rolling himself a 5! Possible point based event, but does he want to take it?

Well in that case it means our final player this round is [B]Abdul Al-Salami[/B]! He rolls a 4, which doesn't move him to an event square. It does however, allow him the opportunity to spend his remaining points. Does he wish to do so?
