@sprozes,

This game allows for three basic scenarios:

(1) R N V K J/S S/J
(2) R __ N __ __ __
(a) R V N __ __ __ K/S/J are free variables and could go in any order as long as K (b) R J N V K S
(3) __ R N __ __ __
(a) V R N __ __ __ K/S/J are free variables and could go in any order as long as K < S
(b) J R N V K S

The following is a list of valid auction orders where J is fifth:

R N V K J S
R V N K J S
V R N K J S

The fact that V cannot be auctioned adjacent to J does not preclude J from being fifth.

Let me know if this makes sense.
