Auction Watch #68

Last week the University of M.U.S.C.L.E. tried formatting Auction Watch a little differently. It does not appear that the change was either positive or negative. This week another approach will be tested. Will it be interesting or will things go back to normal next week?

This does not mean there aren’t a few interesting aspects of the board game.
