Blender Racing Rules Thread! (in Contests)

QBOddBird May 24 2007 10:47 AM EDT

Welcome to Carnage Blender's 1st Semi-Annual Blender Racing Rules Thread! This will be a two-part contest, geared towards both spectator and participant! Basically, the game goes like this. In 3 days I will create a thread named "CB Semi-Annual Blender Racing #1" for this contest. There will be 5 horses with 5 jockeys. Each day, I'll propose a word, and each jockey will propose a partner to this word. For example:

I propose:








An Admin will then, at the end of the day, state the answer to the original proposition (say it was Homestead) and that Jockey (Jockey2) will advance on his horse one pace in the race! First one to the finish wins! However, this isn't just a race for the jocks - it is a race for everyone! See, there will be a second thread created - the "CB Blender Racing Spectators!" - and there one will enter his transfer stating which horse he chooses to sponsor! Each player may only sponsor one horse. If your horse wins, you win a share of the pot! It will be split like this:

1st place: 60% of the pot is split amongst winners
2nd place: 70% of the remaining pot is split amongst winners
3rd place: 100% of the remaining pot is split amongst winners

The fee to bet upon a horse is a minimum of 10k - however, you can bet more to increase the overall pot if you feel lucky! Choose carefully your horse and jockey!


When the Original Contest Thread is created, the first (5) to pay the fee will be named Jockeys, and they will post their counter propositions to the original word. Note: If you cannot be on each day to post a counter word, you shouldn't become a Jockey. Simply wait for someone else to post before you. If you become a Jockey, and find that you will not be able to log in one day, please select in the thread a candidate to replace you for that day.

what if the winning word isn't said by one of the three jockeys?
