Russian (auction) Roulette (in Contests)

AdminG Beee March 5 2007 3:06 PM EST

It's time for a game of Russian Roulette, CB auction style :)

I've put a Steel Brigandine up for auction and now you have to decide whether you want to bid on it or not. Winner of the contest (not the winner of the auction) gets $200k from my admin char

Rules and how this works:
I've picked a value for this item randomly and passed the info to Bart. The person who either bids the exact value or the closest value below the figure I've CM'd Bart will win their cash back and $200k from my admin char. The person who has bid one increment above my value will lose their bid and the cash will be held on my admin char for future contests. The loser has effectively committed CB auction suicide :)
Of course if more than one person bids above my number and actually wins the auction I'll refund their cash.

Interesting contest - great ideas coming from Beee! I can't believe it! *grins*

You're giving Barzoo a run for his money G!

Obviously getting out of the CB rat race has freed up your imagination!

Just to clarify - if several people bid above my number then obviously all bar the auction winner will have their cash refunded automatically by CB. Remember I'll also refund the auction winner direct from my admin char.
The contest loser (ie the person with the first bid above my value) will be obliged at the end of the contest to transfer the cash to my admin char or have me remove it for them :)

Hope the number isn't 500k, then. Poor contest loser. *grins*

Ends in 10:21:01

Has someone bit the auction bullet and bust my target or is there still money up for grabs?

Well that's for you to decide but it was time to bump this post :)

Does the winning bidder get to keep the Brig? ;)

AdminG Beee March 6 2007 9:12 AM EST

Sure the winning bidder can keep the item. No return, no refund though ;)

The auction has finished and we have a winner.

is Duck Knee because his guess was closest to the random value of $83k that I'd selected at the start of the competition.
G Beee (Admin_Beee) Duck Knee (Diabolik) $200000 -- see /bboard..0022vc 4:33 AM EST

Angel of Death lived up to his name and "bit the auction bullet" .
Please send $93,541 to my Admin char as your penalty.

Zgabu won the auction and will have his final bid of $131,621 returned in full.
Please remember to send me back the Brig ;)

Hope you all enjoyed the game - I'll do it again soon and give AoD a chance to win his life, erm money back again.
