I like this but I'm afraid it's so removed from anything traditional gaming stands for that they'll become very very defensive. Just by reading your answer I imagine someone from the group saying "Hey, isn't this like that other thing, the one that didn't work out very well?".

@valadil I had combat work in simple turns. It worked surprisingly well. Now that I think about it, combat is the only thing my system seemed to shine at. I suggest looking into DitV's attack-defence mechanics and adapting them to the bidding system.

Well, I definitely have to look into this Universalis thing too now. It's not the first time I thought I've had a great idea only to later find out that it's been done before. And it won't be the last.

A note about speed: At first I had players taking turns, deciding whether they wanted to increase their bid or not, which was extremely slow. However, secretly deciding on a number of chips and then having all players simultaneously revealing them is pretty fast. Definitely not a problem.

Thanks for an exhaustive answer. I found the "Issues to consider" section especially helpful.

comment Does shutting your eyes help when mirror images are in different squares?
If mirror images don't produce sound, then why does the spell description say "observers can’t use vision or hearing to tell which one is you and which the image"?

comment How to design a game for sociopathic characters?
The players not buying in could have been the problem I guess. However, they all are people who almost never show any excitement, so it's difficult to know for sure what they were thinking. As for their goals, aside from having to complete the "bet" without getting caught, each of them had some personal stuff assigned to him to explore and resolve. But I got the feeling that they didn't like it when I explicitly assigned character goals like that.

I asked Dexter Morgan but he said he was in the middle of something.
