Who Should CB Hate? - "Temptation the Game" (in Contests)


Mythology [The Knighthood] March 31 2005 6:32 PM EST

A very simple game, if everyone reads the following rules :)
-
RULES (to be read).
-
1) The game is : pass temptation.

2) Once you have 'passed temptation' you will never have to face it again.

3) When it is your turn to be tested you will be sent an amount of money with the note "I trust you". You then have 2 options :
Road of disloyalty : "The person who sent me this is an idiot to think I wouldn't keep the money, I hope everyone sees how stupid they are". Then keep the money.
Road of loyalty : "I'd kind of like to keep the money, but its only a few $s cost to pass this on, and I dont want to make the person who sent me it and trusted me look stupid, I'll pass on the money". Then post on this thread you are taking the road of loyalty, then move to step (4).

4) Send the money you recieved PLUS another $500 to someone on the game you KNOW is ACTIVE and you TRUST. If they already passed temptation then you cannot send to them. Basically think to yourself 'who do i trust not to keep the money, who wont let me down?'. Once you have chosen attach the note "I trust you" and dont forget to send $500 more than you recieved and passed. NOW - Post to the thread the transfer log of you sending it, well done. You have passed temptation, you have proven you friend right, lets hope you sent it to a decent person... Good luck.

5) Note if temptation is not passed within 48 hours of it being sent, it is assumed the road of disloyalty has been chosen, so make sure the person you're sending it to will be online with 48 hours and does not take too long over decisions :p


Lets see how long we can get this to go :D

What happens to the money once it has been sent all around?

Mythology [The Knighthood] March 31 2005 6:51 PM EST

Unlike Trillian, everyone who gets temptation, please read and follow the directions, like posting your road, and attaching note "I trust you" please :D

Trillian was the only one who had Myth waffling away in PM about his new contest whilst trying to read the rules! I think I can be forgiven for missing one little detail!

Too bad no one knows me! But in the end, won't someone have to go through the road of disloyalty?

Maelstrom March 31 2005 9:03 PM EST

Maybe the cash resulting from this could be put into the tourney rewards fund? That was the reason why tourneys haven't yet been implemented, that there wasn't anything for rewards. Considering how valuable cash is right now, it might motivate people to play.

Tribute March 31 2005 9:08 PM EST

It would for me. However, the current player is the only one who decides the people who play. Oh and this is actually a good way to loan people money for 2 days. /me smirks.

I can clearly cheat and say no matter the dollar amount, I would pass it on.

That's the easy part.

Who to pass it to? Last I checked, Vienna Teng doesn't Blend. And she isn't returning my phone calls. Not a single one.

Could you guys hurry up with this? When it gets to $3 mil or so, send it to me. I really need that CoBF. Thanks.

(CB1)logan666 [Jago] April 1 2005 3:24 PM EST

Interesting game but if someone was to send me the money I probably wouldn't even notice it. A few K is small change and I don't check my transfer logs that often. Maybe a CM saying "Do the right thing" should be sent so that people know they are being tested.

The sad thing is that one could change one's username to receive the money again. It's hard to recognize the difference in name choices sometimes.

a player can only change names after 1 month... so that problem won't be so big and it won't (shouldn't) allow the player to receive it twice.

I can't believe how big the pot has gotten so quickly, didn't go through all of them to see if anyone just threw a bunch in though. Considering how the community here works (mentors, completely transparent store and transfer logs, as well as self monitoring with multis etc) I'm not that shocked this has kept going...but eventually someone is going to drop the ball and let everyone else who didn't drop it down. Really am starting to wonder who the "Unlucky" fool will be? Seeing all the large names involved in this thing, have to wonder if keeping it could actually hurt them in the long run when it comes to business transactions in the game?

Tribute April 7 2005 11:14 PM EDT

What's with all the :D? I would rather see >( or :P, but that's just me. Let's see what Vicious does. Will his character match his name? Will he viciously keep the hard-earned money of others. BTW, this really isn't a contest since you choose whether or not you win as well as the other players, but it is a fun experiment.

[FireBreathing]Chicken April 7 2005 11:22 PM EDT

lol. viciously keep the money?!

Tribute April 8 2005 10:43 AM EDT

Scared?
Vicious might actually be the one CB shall hate.
Or. Or maybe he's quit. :(

Bubo [DTC of Bubo] April 8 2005 10:46 AM EDT

You know, I think that everyone has overlooked one small detail. What if the person who received the money does not trust *anyone* else with it? After all, it's a game about trust. Paranoia can break any trust chain.

Relic April 8 2005 10:48 AM EDT

Personally if he keeps the money, I think it would be cool. It would show how silly a thread like this is. But hey, maybe that's just me. :)

Mythology [The Knighthood] April 8 2005 11:03 AM EDT

I'm afraid you misunderstand the title, who should CB hate? The person that is meant to be is the person who sends the cash to someone who breaks the chain, so if Viscious takes the road of disloyalty, Rubberduck "loses" so to speak. Anyone can just keep money, its not hard to keep 100K of other people's money for nothing....

I can pick 5 people at least that I am 80% sure would take the money, anyone can do that, the aim was to find people who you could trust, everyone on the list found one other who would not show them up, except Duck.

It was / is also an experiment into how little amount of money it would take for people to be bought. If Viscous takes the money, he didnt do anything wrong, just took the road less travelled and showed how much he is worth. If the two of them split the money, the buck moves to whoever sent the money to Duck.

As to afk, Viscous is online, he has read the mail refering to this thread and posted about the same time saying he was repaying 100K of debt he owed, so yes, he is not un-active :)

From mails I've got, no I'm not annoyed, this game cost me about what, $1,000? and 5 minutes of time and was very interesting to follow, hope others enjoyed it :D

AdminG Beee April 8 2005 11:12 AM EDT

$1,000 well spent Myth.
With over 120 replies to this thread I think at the very least you should be congratulated for grabbing everyones attention.

Didn't cost me a $c though as no-one trusted this Scotsman with their cash ^.^

Vicious (Boys From The Dwarf) 68.38.229.169 [Contests]Lyan[CB2BANK] (Garama) $108148 April 7 2005 11:55 AM EDT

He didn't say anything in CM either, and i have no clue why the money dropped from 119000 to 108148 :/

[Contests]Lyan[CB2BANK] April 8 2005 11:22 AM EDT

Oh never mind, he owed me 108148$ and i totally forgot about it.

Ha ha ha hahahahaha! So it's over. Oh well. Guess I really am not trusted / need to be more active.

NSFY April 8 2005 3:51 PM EDT

I am more inclined to dislike the person who didn't send it on - especially since most of us don't really know each other.

QBsutekh137 April 8 2005 4:43 PM EDT

I will decide to dislike NSFY, because he has yet to send me the scrapple I requested.

sasquatchan April 8 2005 4:49 PM EDT

Chet,

by scrapple, you mean the, ahem, "stuff" one eats for breakfast ? The ah, loaf o'pig parts ? Boy .. You want some of it ? I mean, my local grocer carries it, but I'm not that .. daring ..

NSFY April 8 2005 7:04 PM EDT

Chet, Chet, Chet...If I've told you once, I've told you three times. Give a man some soup and he eats for a day, teach him to make turkey chili, and he never goes hungry again!

How many times must I give you the secret of the scrapple?!?!?!

/whispers the secret one last time

*velvitoil*

Now get to slappin' !!!

moser April 8 2005 7:19 PM EDT

You want scrapple, just go get some head cheese, but for a real treat, ask for some blood pudding, nothing like a slice of scab to start you out for the day.

I don't think many people actually understood the 'hated person' portion of the contest.

Reebok April 9 2005 3:48 PM EDT

Wait so who do we hate? Vicious?

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] April 9 2005 3:52 PM EDT

We should be hating Vicious, which is the main reason this started, to hate the person that kept the money...Nobody let Vicious buy anything unless its at least a mil bid over the original, That would be "mad at him enough"...and if he needs loans or borrowing say "sorry, you may keep it, I *don't* trust you."

Special J April 9 2005 4:01 PM EDT

paul, thats taking it a bit too far.

It was a game and it ended, doesn't matter if you like the ending, because it was a game and someone was going to keep it along the way anyhow.

Quit hating, laugh it off and move on.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] April 9 2005 4:14 PM EDT

ok, so there really was no point to this thread at all?

Special J April 9 2005 4:29 PM EDT

No, it had a point, but the point was to have fun with it, not stamp someone with a scarlet letter.

A very simple GAME, if everyone reads the following rules :)

It's at the top of the thread.

I believe the top of the thread was...

Who Should CB Hate?

I think he deserves some nastiness =)

Phaete April 10 2005 5:33 AM EDT

/me would like to see a second rally.......
with perhaps 1-2 people excluded (as those not to be trusted with the money, and/or not to be trusted to find a trustworthy person) :D
