Round 8 Result
This was a high-spending round with some VERY close spending that is sure to leave some players disappointed. Felissan takes the win with 32 coins, while Cheery Dog spends 31 and mallowgeno 30. Vijarada claims the last point with 24 coins, leaving animorpherv1 hanging on 20 coins. Lower down, StrangerCoug spends 12 and at least goes +1, Not_Mafia spends 3 to go +9, while Gammagooey spends 1 and TwoInAMillion 0 to go +10 each.

With only five rounds left, it's looking like it could be a very close finish. Round 9 begins now, and ends in (expired on 2018-02-08 11:00:00).

Round 9 Result
Not_Mafia secures the win this round with 31, while StrangerCoug spends 30 to take second. It's a bit of a drop from there, with Felissan spending 21 for 3rd and TwoInAMillion taking 4th with 18. Vijarada spends 17, but is left begging. Further down, the savers are fairly spread out this time - mallowgeno goes +7, animorpherv1 +8, while Cheery Dog and Gammagooey go +9 each.

Round 11 Result
Neither TwoInAMillion or Vijarada submit, so this round only has 7 participants. And of those, only two try to actually spend - Not_Mafia, who takes 1st with 28 coins, and Felissan, who takes 2nd with 26. Cheery Dog collects an easy 3rd place with 5 coins, while animorpherv1 and Gammagooey tie on 1, and mallowgeno and StrangerCoug tie on 0.

Damn, it didn't cross my mind for a second that so many people would go all-in on round 12. Well played, and thanks for hosting again!

yeah I expected round 12 to be more like round 11.
could have finished a place higher if I submitted only 1 on round 12.

Not_Mafia manages to make it two for two, with a very high-spending Round 12 catching a lot of players out. Gammagooey and Felissan round out the podium, and strangely enough there's a three-way tie for last place. Congratulations to our champion, and thanks to everyone for playing.

Probably gonna do a game 3, any feedback is appreciated!
I'm trying to think of a way to keep players lower down from giving up and losing motivation. I added the option to have a fallback value to the rules but it wasn't really taken advantage much, maybe its importance could be stressed some more?

I submitted a fallback value but then I think never wound up needing to use it (though I did submit a few hours before deadline twice I think), a reminder on the first or second round PMs might be helpful for that.

It did feel like 3rd and 4th place were never worth it unless someone wound up getting it accidentally for really cheap, but I don't know how much that was b/c of the point totals awarded compared to some players not adjusting their play when it seemed clear by mid-way through that saving every other round (or two rounds straight even) to either guarantee or threaten to take first/second place was a very good strategy that N_M and I both used.
I think the point distribution would have been better if we got one extra player for 10 - maybe with the same amount of players I'd suggest adding another low point place, something like 9-6-3-2-1? It encourages a little more jockeying for position near the lower end and doesn't punish people quite as hard if they spend a significant # of coins but wind up getting flooded out by other people bidding higher.

Perhaps?
The plan I put down for 10 was 9-6-4-2-1, which would definitely feel a lot nicer.
I think I'll try running with that even if we get 9 again next time.
