  1. Hooray! We only need 4 players, so let's begin!

    Minigame I: Locked Doors

    Each person has a (virtual) door that they need to unlock. They are locked with 4-digit combination locks. The combinations are scattered around the Brainden forums. The person who's door they unlock is not stated. Each person knows the location of 1 combination that is not their own, but not who it belongs to. The first person to 'enter' the correct combination of their door (through PM) wins $100. BTSC (Behind-the-Scenes Contact) is allowed, but please invite me to them :). The PMs will be sent out shortly following this post. Good luck and Have fun!

  2. First, note that the maximum you may smuggle in one smuggling round is $100mil, so Chris's scenario would not occur. Alice would gain an indemnity of $50mil from the player that made the call, it is deposited into the team account in the bank in the safe territory. Bob's $100mil BD would be confiscated and deposited into the opposing team's account in the safe territory.

    Ah, I must have missed that part about the $100mil limit. So would Alice put the $50mil in the neutral 'third territory' bank? And would Bob's confiscated money also be put there, or would it be returned to the opponent's bank so that he can try to smuggle it again?

  3. A few questions:

    Firstly, can you smuggle teammates' money as well as your own? Or is the whole $600mil deposited in one single account in the other team's territory, in which case this doesn't apply? Related to that, do you put all the captured money in a separate account in same bank as the opponent's withheld money? Does it look like this:

      • Account "Panther": $0
      • Account "Phil": $0
      • Account "Flame": $0
      • Account "Framm": $200mil
      • Account "Brainy": $200mil
      • Account "Jay": $200mil
      • Account "Panther": $200mil
      • Account "Phil": $200mil
      • Account "Flame": $200mil
      • Account "Framm": $0
      • Account "Brainy": $0
      • Account "Jay": $0

    Second, does each player on one team inspect each player on the other team (i.e. a total of 3 calls for each player on each team)? Or does the whole team decide what to say for each opposing player (just 1 call)?


    2) Call "DOUBT" and state the amount of money they believe the player is smuggling.

    - i) If the player is not smuggling money, then half the amount will be deducted from the 'bank' account of the player who called doubt and deposited into the smuggling team's account in enemy territory, as an 'indemnity'.

    - ii) If the amount called is equal or greater than the amount being smuggled, the money is confiscated and deposited into the inspecting team's account in safe territory.

    - iii) If the amount called is less than the amount being smuggled, the smuggling team will receive the full amount they were smuggling plus the 'indemnity'.

    This is a bit confusing. Can we get an example?

    Let's say we have players Alice, Bob, and Chris, all on team North. Alice is not smuggling, Bob is smuggling $100, and Chris is smuggling $200. They are all inspected as "DOUBT 100", so points i., ii., and iii., apply to each respectively. What would happen for each player? The most confusing bit is WHERE the money gets deposited in each situation, so could you please use the player's name and the bank's location when referring to the accounts? As in "South bank account Alice" for Alice's account in the opponent's territory.

    Sorry for all the questions, maybe I'm just slow.

  4. You know you're a grammar Nazi when you look at the latest post in One Up Me by flamebirde and you smile because he used "you're" instead of "your."

    Nope, it's you're. Unless that was the joke, in which case I applaud you! Voting is open for another day until I declare a winner.

    I have never been so self-conscious writing a forum post until now.

    You should have written,

    Nope, it's "you're"

  5. To clarify, by "give votes" do you mean that, say, I could give 2 votes to [GenericName] and he then has 6 votes to use and I have 2?

    No, it means you can votes you obtained through the voting rounds. I.e. if it is voting round 6 and you currently have 30 votes and [GenericName] has 20 you may give 2 votes to him and you will have 28 and he will have 22.

    >also, am I allowed to not use all 4 votes?

    Edit: Would I then be able to use the unused ones next voting round?

    You may choose not to use all 4 votes. You will lose unused votes.

    Alright, thanks.
