FREE MONIES!!!!

Postby Monty » Fri Jun 21, 2013 10:27 pm

It's time to liven things up here in Odyssey 105! In this thread, you will be signing up, and ultimately playing a game of wit, skill, and strength. (It's really just luck...) Here's how it works.

I have hidden money in 16 boxes, ranging in these amounts as follows:

$250
$100
$75
$50
$50
$40
$30
$25
$25
$25
$25
$25
$20
Mystery Round!
Mystery Round!
XXX

You will be able to win a maximum of $1,000. The rules are simple.

One player will play at a time.

Each round, you will pick a box.

If you pick a box not containing XXX, you continue.

You can stop anytime before picking another box.

If you pick a mystery round box, you will have to pick three boxes. If none of them has the XXX, you will double the highest amount in your boxes!

For example, if you picked the $100, the $25, and the $20, $245 would be added to your total.

If you pick the XXX, your game is over, and you leave with just $10. However, if you stop before hitting the XXX, you will keep whatever you had banked in your total!

There is one caveat to choosing to participate. You must use 25% of your winning to make a new contest in Odyssey 105. If you open the XXX, you must use all of your $10 to make a new contest. Failure to use your winnings to start a contest will result in forfeiture of said funds.

To sign up, tell me about the contest you will be doing with your winnings.


The line starts here!
Blitz (currently playing)

Shakespeare
Bookworm
Aftershocker

Winners!
Aftershocker: $265
Samantha14: $100
Joy: $20
Shakespeare: $10
Blitz: $10
Arkàn: $10
Bookworm: $10

Given away so far: $425.

Money to be used to start new contests: $106.25

EDIT to previous post: Added note about those who fail to use their FREE MONIES!!!! to start a new contest.

With that said, Joy, welcome to the game! Remember that anyone can still sign up, thereby adding their name to the list.

Joy, I will need you to pick a box between 1 and 16.

I will play. Moderators don't do so much as one would expect. And we don't get a salary. :-s Go figure.
If I got some winnings, I would open... let's see, likely a Danger Game. You can win $, or if you fail you have to wear an avatar of my choice. Something like that. I also have several other ideas.

There we go. Should be a little better.

Joy, if you fail to post a box within, say, 36 hours, you will forfeit your spot in the line.

It is. And that's how it should be. That's how it is in Texas. But in the Federal Government, they are the most overpaid people I know of. So one starts to get used to the Idea.

On that encouraging note, Joy, you have lost your place. Blitz, you are next up! You have 72 hours to post a box, else your turn will go to the next person in the line.

I’m not sure exactly how this works, but I’d like to give it a try.
I would use my winnings for a very meta contest contest.

Blitz, your box contains...

The XXXX. I am so sorry. You leave with just $10.


With that disappointing first box, we go to Arkan Dreamwalker. Arkan, you have 72 hours to post your first box, else you will lose your spot in line.

Blitz, you can still sign up and jump into the line.

Bookworm, I added you to the line. If there is anything you are confused about, feel free to let me know.

No. The goal is to start new contests in Odyssey 105. Besides that, you are free to use your creativity to do whatever!

Arkan, you got on the board with $25! You have no choice but to pick again.

Box number 7 contains...the XXX box. Your game is now over, and you will be sent $10.

Sammy, it is now your game to play. You will be the first to play with the new rules. I will be modifying the box selections so that there is only one XXX box. There will also be two Mystery Round boxes that will force you to play the mystery round in which you play three boxes. This will be edited into the first post.

Sammy, your 72 hours start...now.

Arkàn, feel free to sign up once again to be placed back in the line.

Well, if that's the case, why pass up? *signs up* I hate to admit it it, but if you want to get Arkán's attention, say free money.
