Resident Evil Deck Building Game: Best Character

Free. A radical price according to Chris Anderson, but a price people must begin to accept in the future. The future is now. Free is the cost of ammunition for your future arsenal. Free is not the cost of your character.
How Can a Character Have a Cost?
Some characters are more powerful than others. Some people prefer to play as certain characters because of their preferences from the video games. Wagering for characters allows players to choose characters in a fair way, without preventing someone from playing as the character they truly want to play as.
What is Wagering?
A player chosen at random nominates a character and starts the bidding at some amount of declaration points. Players cannot make bids in smaller increments than a half of a point. Players take turns around the table bidding on the character, until every player passes in one round. Players may pass one round of bidding but make a bid later if the same character has not sold. Once a character sells, another player nominates a character to bid on. A player may never nominate a character that has already been sold or a character that has the same name as a character already sold. At the end of the game, players subtract from their score the amount of declaration points they paid to play the character.
Won’t the Board Affect My Choice in a Character?
