10.  As I said on reddit, this is 1 less than Colony, for 2 fewer points.

17

Reasons:
1. It's a good number
2. It's the least 2 digit number not already guessed.
3. It's conceivable that you are all underestimating (except scsn). Debt is paid off without overflow, unlike a province sometimes. Also, these 8 VP doesn't clog your deck at all.
4. It's probably supposed to be a surprising answer
5. It's a good number

10 guineas.

You might push me to 10 pounds, 11 shillings and 5 pence, but not a farthing more.

10/6? I mean, if we're bidding in British currency In This Style.

17, so that liopoil doesn't win alone if it's correct.

Yes, positive it is 17. I guessed 13, but it should actually be 17.

So you spend double the price for a Province for more VP and not having one in your deck; seems about right I guess.

I kind of spoiled it when I released my new version of the sim, but here's the official answer:

17 is the correct bid.

Some more statistics:
  • In a Sea Hag slog the correct bid is 19
  • In a Fishing Village/Wharf engine game, the correct bid is 13

Now liopoil or WW or whoever pretended to guess can feel happy they cheated.

This is going to be such a hard card to figure out in games it comes up in.

If I remember correctly, you have to put an "uli" in there to make that a correct statement. Incidentally, those three letters are also a homophone for what Seprix is accusing lio of.

Januli does sound like Liopoil's actual name.
