I was just looking at tenure of the people on the list. It appears I am the most junior. If that is the case and there is a need to cut someone, I will volunteer.

Actually, I will be happy to go on standby rather than you, or optionally as the Wiz needs to make the numbers work. I'd rather see you get to play, and Jufo, and other folks who usually don't. So put me at the back of the line or on standby, please.

If there is still room I would like to join.



I'm accepting new players until about 8 AM tomorrow morning.

At this time, I'm looking for a commitment from sodawater and Nathan. Both have offered discussion in the thread but never said "in." Lacking an "in," they will be assumed to be out. If some players need to be cut, I'll form a waiting list, with them on it, for an expansion team.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I'm in, how does this work? I realize by what I said is the equivalent of signing a contract and THEN reading the fine print, ;) This Cooperation Game seems like fun. Do I have to put up money in PayPal or anything like that? Because I do not have a PayPal account. ;)

It's a total free roll, as in you do not have to put ANY of your money up at ALL. The Wiz is banking the game, so for the players it's just fun and maybe win a little bit. All you'll be responsible for is voting by the specific deadlines the Wizard will set, that's it =).
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

No. It痴 a free roll.

The Wiz is putting up all the money. The point of the game is to figure out how much and to whom.

No Nathan, you don't have to put up money up front. Your word is your bond and you can generally settle up by internet banking, so long as you have a suitable US account. (If I understand correctly).

Oh and Nathan..... It's a freeroll. You CANNOT lose money. It's like a TV gameshow where Wizard is the host and he hands out prizes out of his own pocket.... Or not, depending on how badly we play.

In the last game, I won $15 which was about the average. This variant of the game is going to bring a lot of tactics into play. If team members screw each-other over they can all end up not winning and get pissed at each-other. So, cooperate a lot. Though part of the game is to not cooperate and to lie and steal. You will find the game makes some of us grumpy. the ideal is for us to milk the Wizard out of as much money as possible, so collusion is a good way to go.
Beware. The earth is NOT flat. Hit and run is not a winning strategy: Pressing into trends IS not a winning strategy: Progressives are not a winning strategy: Don't Buy It! .Don't even take it for free.

If there's still room, I'd like to play. If not, no worries, I'll gladly watch from the bleachers.

Sorry, this time I will do this Survivor style and reserve the right to tweak the rules as I go. However, here will be the general rules:

  1. Players will be divided into teams of five players each.
  2. Who will be on what team will be my choosing. The first round will be random. After that, I can mix things up, or keep them the same, however I like.
  3. I will make public before each vote who is on what team.
  4. Each player must submit a "share" or "steal" vote to me by PM.
  5. The majority vote of each team will determine a single vote for that entire team. Like the electoral college.
  6. I will make public the team votes only, not who voted for what or by what margin. For example, I'll say "Team x voted share."
  7. Prize money for each round will first be divided equally among all teams as follows:
    * If all teams vote "share," then they split the prize money equally
    * If all teams vote "steal," then nobody gets anything for that round
    * If there are a mix of "share" and "steal" votes among the teams, then those voting "steal" shall share in the prize pool for that round and the "share" teams get nothing
  8. The team prize money will be divided equally among all members of that team, regardless of the individual votes
  9. In the event non-voters cause a tie on any given team, I will randomly select a number for each player. The voting player with the highest number will break the tie.
  10. I will not have much tolerance for non-voting players. A waiting list will be formed once the game starts of people wishing to fill in the shoes of those who don't vote.
  11. Players may submit votes in advance if necessary due to being on vacation.


Any questions? I'd like to announce teams on Friday and set July 1 as the deadline for the first round of votes.

How long will each round be to get a vote in and how many rounds will there be?
I am a robot.
