    Rules Clarifications:

    • German setup with dividend cards distributed through the deck.
    • Start with five normal stock instead of four
    • The number of UP stock is public knowledge
    • (new for 2019) Money is completely OPEN at all times
    • If a game is called for time, all remaining dividend cards will be immediately scored
    • All games use a tiebreaker of reverse seating order for all finish positions (there are NO ties).
    • During the first round, player order is determined randomly
    • (New) GM will specify seating order for the semifinal/final, based on performance in the first round.

    Late arrivals will only be allowed to play at GMs discretion. If there are not enough copies of the game, all games will fill to four players and the latest arrivals who did not bring a copy will not be able to play.
