Who should CB hate! ''Temptation the game" Part 3! (in Contests)


Brakke Bres [Ow man] March 13 2008 7:26 PM EDT

Last time this game ran, it was in June 2007 so its that time again! :)

A very entertaining game thought up by Mythology, last edition $2010000 was sent around in this contest! And "won" by Opvines!

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Now read the rules carefully below, with enough participants we shall start this of on Sunday the 16th of March :)

The RULES! Read below!
-
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.

Play on!

Sunday it starts!

th00p March 15 2008 5:37 PM EDT

Don't tempt me, bad evidence in my past of what happened when 20+ mil was left over, no one ever saw it in one piece again.

BluBBen March 15 2008 5:45 PM EDT

This game rocks! I have seen it twice now but have never been tempted. :-P Let's see what this round brings!

RedWolf March 15 2008 5:48 PM EDT

erm, people may think I'm not active because I don't talk in chat as much as I used to, but I assure you I sign on multiple times per day!

Cliffnotes: I'm in. ;-)

Eccle123 March 15 2008 6:26 PM EDT

i'm in

Wizard'sFirstRule March 15 2008 7:21 PM EDT

I am in. but what if no one left that you can trust? (they all passed)

Koshka March 15 2008 7:46 PM EDT

Send it to someone you're not sure about and cross your fingers?
And I may be being slow here, but am I right in thinking that the person who 'wins' is the first one to fail?

Ernest-Scribbler March 15 2008 7:51 PM EDT

Sounds fun:)

QBOddBird March 15 2008 8:45 PM EDT

I sense many newbies anticipating a chance to steal some monies. ;)

Keep in mind Opvines, who didn't pass last time, ended up leaving the game shortly thereafter! Is it a curse? I hope so, ya dirty money-stealers!

Phoenix [The Forgehood] March 15 2008 9:02 PM EDT

Hmmm...

I am sooo in.

[LittleRed]Calynne March 16 2008 12:34 AM EDT

I wanna play too ^^

Xenko March 16 2008 1:01 AM EDT

No one trusted me last game :(

Frost March 16 2008 3:00 AM EDT

great idea for a game but what if you send it to someone who went on a vacation or something.

SimplyNic March 16 2008 3:43 AM EDT

Hm... Sounds neat... I guess I'll play ^ ^.

Gunny Pew Pew [Red Permanent Assurance] March 16 2008 4:02 AM EDT

Frost, read No. 4. "you KNOW is ACTIVE and you TRUST."
Won't dive into examples to muse the evil. Suggest no one else does either. ;)

LA's current cash
Money: $86,856

You fail, lostling.


And you really fail, LA.

Soxjr March 17 2008 6:06 PM EDT

conspiracy. Losting gives money to LA... then LA uses money to pay a loan back to Lostling.. both of you fail.. lol

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] March 17 2008 6:09 PM EDT

Well Now we know not to trust LA with anything... Some people just look out for themselves and thats it ^_^

Ulord[NK] March 17 2008 6:18 PM EDT

he still has 48 hours to come up with the cash. With the nub bonus, he'll rake it in by that time. No worries.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] March 17 2008 6:40 PM EDT

ow my, this is ending faster then intended

Phrede March 17 2008 6:48 PM EDT

I am a little disappointed no-o0ne sent me the package - I would have added a mill or so :(

Brakke Bres [Ow man] March 17 2008 6:48 PM EDT

its not over yet!

Little Anthony March 17 2008 7:04 PM EDT

lol i didn't even notice the money nor the contest until drudge told me.

Wizard'sFirstRule March 18 2008 3:53 AM EDT

is it over? who got it?

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] March 18 2008 4:11 AM EDT

Well Anthony hasn't sent it on yet so I would assume Anthony is gonna keep it.

Soxjr March 18 2008 4:43 AM EDT

Looks like he gets to keep it twice :P

QBJohnnywas March 18 2008 4:45 AM EDT

Actually didn't two people get to keep it?

Soxjr March 18 2008 4:47 AM EDT

nope. lostling sent to LA.. then LA paid a portion of his loan.. then drudge sent the same amount to LA so he would have the chance to send it again.. and nothing so far... So basically LA got to keep the money 2 times.

QBJohnnywas March 18 2008 4:54 AM EDT

Lost sent to LA, but LA sent it back to Lost - as part of a loan repayment but still sent back - then drudge sent another sum to LA. So there's two lots of that temptation money sitting there....

ActionAction March 18 2008 6:01 AM EDT

Oh, I didn't realize that the 17th to the 18th was 48 hours :P. Silly me~

Brakke Bres [Ow man] March 18 2008 6:05 AM EDT

aha 48 hours is a long time! come on LA don't disappoint us!

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] March 18 2008 11:50 AM EDT


*again

QBRanger March 18 2008 12:51 PM EDT

When did he disappoint us the first time?

QBOddBird March 18 2008 1:02 PM EDT

I believe she's referring to when lostling sent him the money and LA sent him a payment promptly afterwards.

Only time will tell :)

Little Anthony March 19 2008 11:01 AM EDT

The game shall goes on, i just have difficulty to choose who i trust :P maybe later today when i am not too busy.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] March 19 2008 3:55 PM EDT

hurry up then 48 hours are almost up

QBRanger March 19 2008 4:06 PM EDT

Actually the 48 hours were up at 12:15 PM today.

I guess LA failed the test, the first test he was given.

Poor Comrade LA!

drudge March 19 2008 4:24 PM EDT

...actually is no way to begin a sentance ;D

Wizard'sFirstRule March 19 2008 4:59 PM EDT

I say we give him another few hours. (I want the temptation, but I don't know will I pass.)

IndependenZ March 19 2008 5:45 PM EDT

Shame shame shame shame on you, LA.

:p

Godpanda March 19 2008 7:50 PM EDT

I repeat what Inde said, without the ;p at the end.


j'bob March 19 2008 9:33 PM EDT

what i find interesting is this...
didn't he get TWO parcels of money?
so he's keeping them both? so we have to hate
him X's 2!

Templar March 19 2008 11:35 PM EDT

so LA just got tossed 1.5+ mill?
><

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] March 19 2008 11:48 PM EDT

Sad considering that was such a small amount to lose our trust over....

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] March 19 2008 11:51 PM EDT


Yes, he got and "kept" the money _twice_, though you might reserve some animosity for Lostling, who served himself quite well.

InebriatedArsonist March 19 2008 11:55 PM EDT

That's the S&L business for you, Bast.

QBRanger March 20 2008 12:08 AM EDT

drudge gave LA 750k since LA, at the time of the xfer to lostling, did not have any money.

He did it as a nice gesture that LA just kept as well.

So LA has indeed disappointed the CB community 2 times, just like Bast predicted.

Although we could split 1 vote: 1/2 for Lostling and 1/2 for LA. As lostling was quite smart, like he pointed out.

Relic March 20 2008 1:08 AM EDT

Doesn't the saying go something like... "a fool and his money are soon parted"? Case in point. :)

lostling March 20 2008 1:20 AM EDT

me thinks that me should have just kept the money...

lostling March 20 2008 1:26 AM EDT

*sorry for double posting*
and yes i did expect him to send it on =\ sorry

Godpanda March 20 2008 1:57 AM EDT

Hey now, lostling has NEVER given ANY of you a reason to put blame on him. I've never seehn him be greedy or plotting in any way. LA broke the trust of CB by deliberately keeping that money. But lostling did nothing wrong when he sent him that money. He was simply treating him like a part of CB.

Like you did Ranger, when you lent him your tattoo.

Like many of you did in welcoming LA to the game. Be careful blaming lostling here. If someone drug dealer offers a 17 year old drugs, the parents can blame the drug dealer alllll they want. But it's still the teenagers fault they did it.

*has lostling's back*

QBOddBird March 20 2008 2:09 AM EDT

I believe they were simply referring to what appeared to have been the meaning behind his post:

"lostling, Mar 17
lostling (The Fallen) 218.186.10.11 Little Anthony (FTW) $760000 -- i trust you(maybe) 12:14 PM EDT

/me is smart"

When the loaner sent the money on to his loan-ee.


...it is sad that LA kept drudge's money too, though. =(

Flamey March 20 2008 2:22 AM EDT

it's a game :/

{CB1}-Mokaba March 20 2008 5:23 AM EDT

Never send money to people who are heavily in debt. hehehe.
The temptation is too great for them. Yeah, Lostling was smart although he think he was. It is a shame for the game that it ended as it did.

Flamey March 20 2008 5:25 AM EDT

It was going to end anyway, and last time's winner/loser wasn't shunned much by the community.

This shouldn't really affect his status in CB community, because it was just a contest/game.

Wizard'sFirstRule March 20 2008 5:34 AM EDT

I say we pose a norminal penalty to LA as a community. No trading with him for 24 hours or something maybe?

Godpanda March 20 2008 6:56 AM EDT

Yeah, just a game. But people get shot over a poker table, so that shows how far that carries.

Edicinnej March 20 2008 7:03 AM EDT

In my opinion lostling did LA pretty dirty.

j'bob March 20 2008 8:17 AM EDT

Well, until we can prove something like, LA is lostling's multi (for in which case I have matches and a pitchfork) /me stands next to GW behind lostling. (and yes, it is just a game)
:D

AdminNightStrike March 20 2008 9:00 AM EDT

You gotta love a community that actively searches for people to hate...

..and more so when they get angry that they now have to hate that person...

This contest is pathetic.

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] March 20 2008 9:38 AM EDT

Goal of the game: To pass or keep a certain amount of cash.

Prize: Total amount of cash passed up to the point where you get to do either of the above.

Seems to me like duder here won the game, and the prize.

Congratulations! (Meant sincerely, too.)

forktoad March 20 2008 10:08 AM EDT

Now comes the hard part, of distributing the consolation prize :-
And the consolation prize is...
FORGIVENESS
(I don't know how many people would be willing to win this prize, but since CB is such a nice community I guess a lot of people would be lining up for it)

j'bob March 20 2008 10:14 AM EDT

/me hugs forktoad for brining the love back!

Gunny Pew Pew [Red Permanent Assurance] March 20 2008 10:30 AM EDT

AdminNightStrike March 20 2008 11:18 AM EDT

"Don't say that NS. Gave us the excuse to hammer OpVines past the point of no return. :) "

He owes me $20m CBD. Thanks for that.

And you wonder why the active players is constantly declining.......

Revs March 20 2008 11:59 AM EDT

Excuse me for chiming in, but this was a contest after all. "Contest" - in which there are winners and losers. And in this case the "loser" walks away with the cash, and at that point the contest is over. End of competition.

Yet here I read post after post of the potential ostracizing of someone who didn't win. And it's sad, really. 61 comments arguing about what should be done, or what happened, or whatever is poor form. If you didn't like the potential outcome, you should have never participated. It makes no sense, the game was set up for exactly this outcome. Give the guy a break and move on.
