    Offering Phase (IPO)
    All products are now set up for sale in an IPO (Initial Public Offering). A 6-sided die is rolled for each product: if the roll value is equal to or less than the number of chips on the product, the IPO succeeds; otherwise, it fails. In a success, each chip pays out cash equal to the value of the die roll. A player with multiple shares, then, will earn a higher multiple of the payout. The investment chips on the product are returned to their owners, and the product is removed from the game. In a failure, the product and investment chips remain in the game, and a single foreign investor chip will be added to the product. It will be easier for the product to pay out on the next round, but there are otherwise no other effects.

    Product Status:
    - Martian Monster Cookie: enlightenedbum (x3), (1F)
    - Deluxe Holy Hammer: Rend (x3), (1F)
    - Limited-Edition Decoy Bicycle: lonelyahava, Rend, enlightenedbum, (1F)

    End of Turn and Game
    At the end of the Offering Phase, all players are allowed to discard as many noun and adjective cards as they wish before drawing back up to three of each. (The decks will be reshuffled if they run out.) Then the role of lead player passes to the next player. Once all players have acted as lead players, then the game is over and the player with the most amount of cash is the winner.

    Utsanomiko $18 0
    Rend $12 1
    lonelyahava $24 2
    enlightenedbum $24 5
    manaleak34 $20 2
    Daius $13 1

    If I had gotten some decent rolls instead of all my stuff paying off for 1 or 2 I would be totally beating you.

    Seeing as I have no chance of winning this at all anymore, my next pitch will be back to MSPaint. Curse you people, getting rich off of my successful products.

    I don't think I could have handled another youtube video, Daius.

    I had to go to Krata's computer to watch it. as my computer hates youtube.

    I think the investors for several products have inexplicably been shifted around or dropped between the mezzanine phase and offering phase:
    Bargain Waterproof Horseless Magnet Car:
    - Artificial Scientific Pontiff: (Daius), Utsanomiko
    - The Eco-Friendly Flying Orchestra: (Utsanomiko), Daius
    - The Invisible Cyber-Dog: lonelyahava

    Bum Corp, having successfully marketed all sorts of goodies out of our trip to Mars and discovery of life there, has decided to relax in the south of France. While there, we discovered something awesome.

    Fantastically awesome. So awesome it sells itself.

    That's right: Old-fashioned Wine.

    Alcohol: it's what's for dinner.

    We will invest in this product.

    If there's one problem I've always tend to have it's that whenever I enjoy playing my Bagpipe it always is just so cold when I start and it takes half my energy just to get to a reasonable and stable temperature. Also I'm always jealous of my guitar playing buddies who always get these super fast riffs that I just don't have the speed to do.

    Well out of these personal grievances comes Mana Machineries newest product

    The Self-Heating Accelerated Bagpipe

    "Exactly what it says on the tin."


    Investing in my opus.

    This will kept straight to the point, for numerous reasons:

    Simple Addictive Flowers.

    They are like regular flowers but you can't stop buying them.

    (I'm pretty sure I have no investment tokens left to use)
