The investment Game

A popular game I used to play on forums was known as the investment game. The game rules are pretty straightforward.

  • Ten stocks are advertised for sale on the opening day.
  • There will be a sale price and a purchase price. The sale price is the price it costs to buy the stock and purchase price is the price to sell back to the market.
  • Each stock has a maximum cap of stocks that can be sold so trading among the participants typically happens once stocks become few.
  • Some participants may work out deals to trade with each other that may be more financially advantageous than buying directly from the market.
  • The stocks values are updated daily so that each person can determine their total wealth.
  • Stocks may be bought or sold to an individual or to the bank.
  • Stock sales or trades to individuals must be set at a mutually agreed upon quantity (and price if applicable).
  • Stock sales to the market will be at the seller's discretion of quantity but at the advertised market (purchase) price
  • After ten days, the individual with the most wealth is the winner.
  • All players start with $10,000
  • No one has to send all or any of their money
  • Deficit spending is not permitted

The game needs at least five players to play.

Just to confirm, wealth includes the value of stocks you hold, right?

I coded 10 separate stock functions all with an element of randomness to reflect natural fluctuations and stock purchases, so be ready!

it is funny that we are signing up like this. Cause once the stocks are posted it will be a free-for-all or in other words first come first serve for purchasing cause there is a limited number of shares for each stock

I will post the stocks at approximately midnight my time (Eastern Standard Time).

notes:

To purchase, simply reply in the thread the shares you wish to buy. First come first serve.

Once the total amount of a stock is purchased, no more of that stock is available.

You may im each other for trades but once a trade is decided post it in here to allow for updating.

Trades can consist of stock for money in which case the amount of stocks, the stock, and the amount of money needs to be stated

Trades can also consist of stock for stock

or trades can occur with mixture of stock and money.
