Please look at
www.spielbyweb.com/game.php?games_id=67791&action=auth

A player has over 65,000 escudos, which is obviously a bug.

I believe what happened on Round 9, is the Canal Overseer had 3 escudos, but was able to spend 4 escudos on building a canal of his choice. He should not have been able to select this, and the game appears to have interpreted a value lower than 0 as the highest number it can conceive of.

You know, we could get out of this recession a lot more quickly if our deficit were an unsigned int.

An integer counter went negative. This shows up as a large positive number.
The code needs needs to have a test for negative numbers to prevent the strange notation.
