    Guess Your Way To Riches!

    Guess Your Way To Riches!

    Can you guess your way to riches?
    Is luck on your side?
    Well, try out your lucky bone in my new in-game-game.

    How to play
    It's simple really, I flood my inventory with random objects from my chests. I then select a random object in said inventory and announce it. Players then guess the amount I have in my inventory, however, pay close attention to what I say. I could announce either how many stacks OR how many items. Once all players have had a guess and they're recorded, I calculate the closest guess and that play is declared the winner. (Ask Questions in this thread if you don't understand).

    What you need to do to be apart of this:
    1. Be online in most major peek server times.
    2. If you see me on and want to have a game, ask me.
    3. Be a good "sportsman" or you’ll be denied rights to play.

    What inspired me to do this?
    I have little to no need for gil anymore. So I was thinking to myself, instead of giving it away.. why not make a game out of it?

    How can you help this?
    There really isn't much that needs to be done at all. However, once I start running low on gil,
    the frequency of the games will change. So, if you want to keep the frequency of the games up,
    I'm always open to take donations from those richer people on the server (Or anyone willing to help in fact).

    Will you ever use the gil for your own use if we donate it to you?
    No. I will keep a running record of gamer donations of gil and keep a running total. This will NEVER be used for personal gain.

    Prizes are randomly generated per round and are set for between 1 and 500gil.

    Anyway, without further ado, here is the results of the first (Recorded) rounds:

    <.< I didn't explain it very well. I randomly flood my inventory (click like a loony through my chests). Once full, I randomly choose an item and the total amount in my inventory is this "ammount" you have to guess closest to. Closest guess wins Razz

    It's not really gambling.. there're no stakes for you to lose money. Just thought it might make things a bit more fun when people get bored Razz
