Dragon Mountain Betathon


Do you like to say dumb shit? Do you have what it takes to put fake money on the line over it? Then let's compete. We will all start with $1,000.00 in fake money and you can make almost any bet you want to with it.



Rules
  • To enter, just post that you are in on this, post a bet, or accept a bet. You may enter up until January 31st, the last day of the competition.
  • You will start with $1,000.00
  • If there is ever a time mentioned, it will be considered Pacific time (GMT -8)
  • The competition will run until midnight Pacific time February 1st. Whoever has the most money at that time wins, all bets must be settled before then, any money from outstanding bets will be lost.
  • Maximum bet size will be $50 for the month of December and $100 for the month of January. This is for bets CREATED during that month rather than simply bets that close in that month.
  • Bets can be any size up to maximum, including cents, but no fractions of a cent.
  • If you wish to create a bet or if you create a bet with another player in IRC, post the betting dragon image followed by the details of your bet in bold
  • To accept a bet please quote the details of a bet and in bold say that you accept.
  • The subject of the bet can be anything you want, so long as someone accepts it and it can be resolved before February 1st.
  • No metabets or bets that are a paradox, dumb guys
  • You can have as many open bets as you want, so long as you still have free cash to do so.
  • Bets can only be a one-on-one affair unless you volunteer to track the bet yourself
  • If the odds for the bet are not to be 1:1, give the money value each person is putting up rather than odds.

That's all I can think of, feel free to criticize the rules and we can change them as needed.

A person who has oranges only wants one thing... to survive. I know that a lot of you "who think you're too cool" probably won't re-post this. But a very little amount of my friends will. Put this in your signature in honor of someone who died of orange, survived or is fighting against it now. ♥

A bunch of you are for some reason not noticing that bets have already been taken by others, I will go through and strikeout bets that get taken, I guess.

edit: Apparently you guys were hopping in on one side of the bet, splitting the payout or whatever, this seems like something that would really require a lot of work or an automated system to keep track of. I'm not going to put in the work, and I know of no automated system that exists for this.
