Greed 2: The Greedier (ROUND 3)

Postby RedelMondo » 16 Aug 2011, 22:41

Ok, so I was trolling around the old threads, and I noticed something that looked like fun that I would like to resurect: the game Greed.

You can find the original game here: viewtopic.php?f=59&t=13468

The Objective:
Players pick a number - any number. The person with the lowest pick gets the amount they chose in points. After ten rounds the person with the highest total wins. Only the amount gained is revealed, not who won it.

The Rules:
1. All numbers must be 1 or higher than 1. (no negative numbers)
2. All numbers must be whole (no decimals, fractions, irrational numbers etc.)
3. If multiple people choose the same number, then points are awarded to second smallest number ad infinitum. (ie. Player A and B choose 1, and player C chooses 2. Points go to player C)
4. Players will have 48 hours from the posting of the previous rounds results to PM their selection. I will announce the end of each round/beginning of the next in a PM. Results will be posted in this thread.
5. Any type of communication is allowed between the players.

Interested Players:
1. sinnybee
2. Niakan
3. MisticX
4. diplomat42
5. backstabber213
6. connect4
7. Palin
8. Ironhammer
9. jeanphi
10. Firestorm94
11. vindictus

I'll leave this up for a week (give or take a day) to see if there is interest. I'm not sure what the maximum number of players I can deal with will be. Let's just see how sign ups go.

(Clarified the rules a bit. Thanks to all who have commented on them.)

We have started!
There's still time to join if you would like. All it takes is a number every two days! Not hard at all!!

I would try it, but I'm a little busy. Sounds cool though.

A game that takes hardly any time to play :D
Count me in, please.

Could I make a suggestion as to a possible alteration of the rules?
Post the results of the previous round instead of PMing them, that way others who aren't playing the game can see what's going on if they so choose.

are you allowed to PM the other players about votes?

That was my intent. The rule was poorly worded. I meant that I would notify everyone of the end of the round by PM. Thanks for pointing that out!

Any and all communication is allowed. Public press is encouraged (the last thread was fun to read)!
