      Blind Bid

      The Blind Bid rule applies to Stages 3 through 7 only.

      At the beginning of each Stage, the Marshall asks the players to make
      a secret bid if they wish to act.

      When a player wants to play a stage, he secretly puts one of his
      colored cubes in his hand. When all of the players are ready, the
      Marshall asks the players to open their hands. Only the players who
      have a cube in their hand may play that stage.

      If a player bids to play a stage, then changes his mind about playing
      that stage, it still counts as one of his three choices.


      Cash Bid Player Sequence (CBPS)

      The CBPS rule applies to Stages 1 and 3 through 7 only.

      Cash Bid
      During each phase, all active players secretly prepare and palm the
      amount of money they want to bid for the sequence they will play
      during that phase only. Each player who blind bid must bid at least
      $1 million. At a signal from the Marshall, all players reveal their
      bids simultaneously.

      The highest bidder can then play in the order he wants to (first or
      last), or defer play until the middle of the round. The second
      highest bidder has the next right to play in their preferred sequence
      subject only to interruption by the highest bidder, and so on. Once
      every player has played once per phase, the order begins again with
      the higher bidders having the same right to alter their play sequence.

      Once a player has started their turn in a phase, the higher bidders
      may not interrupt their turn until the phasing player is done. If
      there is a tie in bidding then each tying player must roll a die to
      determine which player goes first, second etc.

      Place Cubes
      The players place their cubes on the board next to the active Stage.
      The cubes should be put in sequence, according to who is playing
      first, second, etc. When a player hasn't any cubes left with which to
      bid, he can not play any more stages on that cycle. On the next cycle,
      players get their cubes back, and can bid again.

      When the players have finished, the Marshall repeats the above
      procedures (Blind Bid and CBPS) for each of the remaining stages. This
      continues throughout the game.
