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 fun until romes screws it up

Wizard provides the prize money. A sub committee handles the collection and distribution of bribes. Those members have not been publicly revealed. Look for a pm after you are assigned a team.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Got it. All newcomers are welcome until I get this going tomorrow morning.

We could email WON if we need more players. He will make several accounts... No sweat.

lets all vote share then donate the money to Nathan so she can make more youtube videos. Actresses are expensive I'm sure.

Mike, I've done some thinking..... I do not think this will be as much fun for you as the previous game. Someone earlier mentioned the only real possible strategy that a mess of a group like us can adopt, that is, to pick one team to share while the others steal, and alternate that team. The 'steal' teams will never have any difficulty in selecting steal, and the single share team will have no incentive to go against the wishes of the entire group. Since the last iteration had the majority of the members pooling the money anyway there will not even be any incentive to lie, and if the team selected to 'share' does lie, they get no benefit anyway. I think the 'collusion' 'teamwork' is too easy with the rules you have established. JMHO.

Eh, I kind of agree, in theory, but there are tons of people (axel, rs, etc, etc) that just want to watch the world burn, so the're not going to cooperate.

So I think we're going to try to have fun with the game, people will sh*t on it, then everyone will steal and no one will get anything.

I think the "teams" are kind of a mute point, because it takes the cooperation of EVERYONE. The ONE thing I do like about the teams is if they truly are random (I hope but understand mike can do what he wants) then hopefully it will randomize the "steal" votes and enough people whom want to do the greater good will outvote them. But really, I doubt there will be a ton of coordinated effort, which will lead to a bunch of people trying to steal (for the extra $0.50) and then no one getting anything to have fun with.

***Do we get to see ALL of the teams rosters each week/vote? Then we can basically know if there's a "trouble" team...
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

What the hell are you talking about? I think your hate for our wonderful president has really gotten to you.
I bet you would watch the world burn if it meant burning down Trump with it.

IIRC RS and I both were very cooperative and never lied about what we were going to do and always choose to share.

I cant remember how you played?

I do remember people watched their investment money burn shortly after.
