Combinatorial auction game

I have had a game idea kicking around for a while (see this friends-locked post), and I'd like to try it out in "email prototype" form before I consider whether it's worthwhile building a web version. Internal testing suggests it's at least "interesting" but I'm not yet sure about "fun."

The prototype rules can be read here. The game's core mechanic is a combinatorial auction--- multi-unit and simultaneous. (I have a cute story to wrap around the game but haven't included it.)

If you'd be interested in participating in the first round, please shoot an email to pt1@combinatorium.com. The game will take 10 rounds, one email per round, with I hope about a 24-hour turnaround on each round.
