Hi Team;

Need your feedback here. In attempts to make the game a) more accessible to new players and b) quicker to play in a crunch (i.e. short cab ride) we’re thinking about a simplified beginner mode. It would work like this:

1. Game flow would remain the same until the end of the Development round (i.e. pre-auction)
2. Prior to each auction, the player would then see a Production Summary screen (below)
3. Based on the summary shown, the player would then choose to either Buy/Sell/Hold that resource
4. The auction would be simulated and the results displayed shortly thereafter

Shoot us your thoughts. We like the idea. Who played on beginner anyway? 🙂
