Instructions - Capital II



               Capital is a game for one or more players. Starting
         with œ80 you must invest in any of six companies on each of
         10 trading days. Share prices all start at œ10 but may go up
         or down each day. The winner is the player who has amassed
         most money by the end of the final day.


               The decision screen for each player shows six icons,
         representing the various companies, with figures relating to
         the current price of that company's shares, the amount of
         shares in that company held by the current player, and
         finally the availability of shares in that company: either
         remaining shares, or the number of shares that can be
         afforded by the player at the current price. N.B a player may
         hold up to five shares in a company OR any multiple of five.

               On the decision screen, to change your holding in a
         company, point to the appropriate company icon or statistics
         box, then press the left mouse button to decrease the number
         of shares held in that company, or the right button to
         increase your holding. You will note that your cash balance
         is immediately updated, and so the availability of other
         shares may increase.

               Finally on the decision screen, you will note that a
         tip is given e.g. cars -3 or electricity +2. Note that
         stockmarket tips are notoriously unreliable! A company's
         shares can never go below œ1 or above œ20.


               When all players have entered their decisions in the
         random order selected by the computer, the day's stock market
         moves are shown by means of a chart on which the icons
         representing each company rattle up, down, or stay at the
         same level. The resulting effects on each player's finances are then shown.

               Note that where the market in general is at a very high
         level, a bear market may develop, and likewise a bull market
         may develop where the market has been depressed.
