Allow players to send a hidden message?

Postby dolbee123 » April 24th, 2011, 7:12 pm

Is there a way to add a feature to The Stock Market Game that will allow players to submit a message that no one will see until all messages are submitted? It would be like laying cards face down on a table then all players "flip" there cards the only catch is that it needs to be a message not preprogrammed cards.For instance if a player wanted to buy Buy 112 shares of Blue Chip he would need to "write the order"on the card then place the card down.This is so the game can be played by email. I was thinking of using ACTS Twilight Struggle because it has the "Headline Phase "option where the cards are not revealed till both players have submitted the only problem is it displays the message.
Any help would be great thanks.

Sean.
