THE RULES OF THE VOC AUCTION
 
everyone will begin with 2000 VOC dollars, which will be used to bid on the items contained in the "catalogue" below. for every item, four hours will be given to bid, and there can be any number of bids, but at the end of every four hour period in which an item is up for auction, only the highest bid will win. only the item that is up for auction at the current time will be elligible to be bid on. players may pool their money together, but i will email those who are pooling their money to another player to make sure they have given permission, and if they haven't any items that were purchased using that player's pooled money will be voided. all times are in board time. the "???" stands for the unrevealed number of points, either veto or popularity, that you will earn for each given price. the number of points will be revealed at the start of the bidding round for each in particular item.
 
multiple bids can be made within each four hour time period on the same item. for instance, if you bid but someone then bid higher, you may still make another bid that is higher than the last one that was made.
 
you may win unlimited bids throughout the auction.
 
the "(starting at)" is the minimum asking price, all bids must be higher than the minimum  asking price.
 
bidding must be done solely on the game thread. bidding must be done in exactly the following format:
"current money remaining - item number - bid - future money remaining"
 
explanation:
current money remaining: the money you have prior to your bid.
item number: the number to the right of each item in the catalogue listing.
bid: the money you are willing to bid for said item.
future money remaining: here you must do the math yourself. this is the amount of money remaining if your purchase goes through, that is, if you win the auction for the particular item you are bidding on.
