Cocokiller, as per the rules, will take 5 stones at random.

I've been assuming "no", best I can tell the race begins when Lit says he's taking applications.

Round 4 results

Post  Litral on 12th October 2008, 5:48 pm

Results:
Cocokiller wins 40 points!
PublicEnemy wins 30 points!
spindrift wins 20 points!
facebook wins 10 points!

Winner:
Cocokiller is the winner for Round 4!

Notes:
I'm sorry I imposed a game that required daily checking upon you. The rules didn't permit such a game, but most of the good games that existed were better with more people. Maybe I should have just "thought up" a bot game.

PublicEnemy's bot was "take the number of stones Cocokiller took", with some exceptions at the end.

I think neither Cocokiller nor PublicEnemy knew the strategy to the final two; there's one in the Wiki, although you need a small variation.

Alliances are encouraged, really, PM each other Very Happy

Round 5 applications

Post  Litral on 12th October 2008, 5:56 pm

Round 5 applications start now. I have three games in my stolen database that are much better than the previous Round, and we'll be playing each of them consecutively for the next rounds. Can't decide which one, though.

I'm glad you guys are so enthusiastic. Who will be the lucky newbie for this round?

facebook, don't worry, as per the rules, the deadline is one week later, and I'll just give you guys a few more days for this one. Since points consumption is possible, I'm not sure you'll be happy with anyone replacing for you, anyway.

Round 5

Post  Litral on 12th October 2008, 7:00 pm

Welcome, Zyrconium, the newbie! Zyrconium will get 20 points for this round.

We will be playing the game Car race.

Explanation:
You're driving a race-car and there are 4 races you must compete in. You have 100 fuel points, and you will consume some fuel points for each race.

The player who consumed the lowest number of points will lose the race, and if two players are to be eliminated, we will give preferential treatment for newer players, because children are the way to the future. Or something.

After each race, your fuel will not be replenished.

You may purchase 1 more fuel point with 1 point.

(e.g.)
Player A:

Purchase 10 fuel points.
Race 1: 25
Race 2: 25
Race 3: 26
Race 4: 34

Player B:

Purchase 40 fuel points.
Race 1: 50
Race 2: 40
Race 3: 30
Race 4: 20

Player C:

Purchase 10 fuel points.
Race 1: 10
Race 2: 20
Race 3: 30
Race 4: 40

Player D:

Don't purchase any fuel points.
Race 1: 20
Race 2: 50
Race 3: 10
Race 4: 20

Player E:

Don't purchase any fuel points.
Race 1: 25
Race 2: 20
Race 3: 30
Race 4: 25

Then for race 1, player C has the lowest fuel points, and the player will be eliminated. The remaining players A, B, D, E continue on to race 2. E has the fewest fuel points, so they will be eliminated, and A, B and D play in Race 3. D has the fewest fuel points for this one, so they lose, and A and B continue on to race 4. A wins this win because they have the highest number of fuel points.

Submisison:
Submit within 10 days in the above format.

If they add up to be above 100, I'll deduct the excess points starting from the last race. I won't do anything if it's below 100.

Points:
The points you get will be the race number in which you were eliminated, times 20. That is, last place gets 20 points and first place gets 100.

Confirmed:
Zyrconium
spindrift
Cocokiller

Actually, I didn't see the ability to take 5 stones, and did realise my Bot was slightly under instructed. But by then it was too late Wink

Round 5 results

Post  Litral on 22nd October 2008, 12:48 pm

Before the races begin, you all set out to obtain advantages...

facebook purchases 10 fuel points...
Cocokiller purchases 5 fuel points...
spindrift purchases no fuel points...
Zyrconium purchases 5 fuel points...
PublicEnemy purchases 9 fuel points...

The races begin!

Race 1:
facebook: 41
Cocokiller: 26
spindrift: 30
Zyrconium: 30
PublicEnemy: 41

Cocokiller loses this race!

Race 2:
facebook: 38
spindrift: 20
PublicEnemy: 38
Zyrconium: 35

spindrift loses this race!

Race 3:
facebook: 30
PublicEnemy: 30
Zyrc: 40

facebook loses this race!

Race 4:
PublicEnemy: 0
Zyrconium: 0

PublicEnemy loses this race!

Therefore...
Zyrconium gains 95 points (100 - 5)!
PublicEnemy gains 71 points (80 - 9)!
facebook gains 50 points (60 - 10)!
spindrift gains 40 points (40 - 0)!
Cocokiller gains 15 points (20 - 5)!

Winner:
Zyrconium, the newbie, is the winner for Round 5!

Notes:
I saw this game several times on various sites, and it's both easy enough and interesting enough that I thought it should be included here. Basically, you're trying to outguess everyone; do people like to use larger numbers first, or smaller numbers first?

I like how some of you cooperated, and it certainly gave you an advantage.

Submissions:

Zyrconium

Race 1:30
Race 2:35
Race 3:40
Race 4:0

- Use 38 in the 2nd race (if applicable)

Round 6

Post  Litral on 22nd October 2008, 5:24 pm

Welcome, MBPikamon, the newbie! MBPikamon will not get any points, but will get an advantage as stated below.

We will be playing Points Gambling.

Explanation:
There are ten boxes marked 1 to 10. Box 1 contains 5 points, Box 2 contains 10 points, ..., Box 10 contains 50 points.

To acquire a box, you must bet on it with chips. The player who has bet the most on a certain box will gain the points in the box. You will start the game with no chips, and you may purchase any amount of chips at a cost of 5 points per chip.

You cannot "retrieve" your chips if you lose a bet; you simply lose your chips.

If there is a tie on a certain box, the box's points will not be rewarded to any player.

Note that it is possible to lose points in this round. Also note that betting more chips than the number of the box will certainly result in a net loss in that box.

The winner is the player who has received the greatest amount of points, net the points cost of chips.

MBPikamon, the newbie, will receive 10 chips for betting at no cost.

Submission:
Submit within one week (Oct 29) in this format:
Box 1: <number> chips
Box 2: <number> chips
...
Box 10: <number> chips

If the total number of chips you buy costs more than your total points, I will take chips away starting from Box 1.

This may be a bit confusing, so feel free to ask Very Happy
