I don’t understand how making a player spend 5 minutes cycling through a Raja request to get the maximum quantity is part of a game.

Where is the fun or challenge or gamemanship. It’s a bad idea. The game is how much aggravation can you take?

just let the player dial in from min to max and get an order. Then if he/she doesn’t like the price they can ask again. At least the cycling is for a better price not some wonky semi random quantity.
