If nobody wants the offered certificate, its price is reduced by 10 until the offered price is 50% (rounded up) of the initial price. If nobody wants it at that price, the player offering it has to buy it, or if they do not have enough cash, the player to their right. This procedure is repeated for the remaining starting package certificates.
