As a host, the number of tickets bought trickled up slowly, and maxed out at 10 at one point.

Not sure how everyone managed to guess so high, especially JaumeBG. Next challenge up in a couple hours, what was your strategy for this round?

FFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

SO close.

But yet so far.

^ What I was telling myself before I bought the tickets.

Then I thought people might actually buy tickets so I said screw it and tried to cover a large area of 8-17 in order to try and make at least a 5 points profit.

tl;dr shot myself in the foot.

I figured that the majority of players would buy a ticket, so I wanted to be different and not buy a ticket.

Turns out that I wasn’t very different after all.

Lol Jaume, ocelot, you guys guessed wayyyy too high :/

Statistically it’s better NOT to buy a ticket than to buy a ticket, assuming you guess randomly.

As proven by the above:5 people bought tickets, only 1 person scored any points. The others lost points.

IMO, according to you, buying a ticket and guessing a low to average number would give you profit in points.

Next challenge pl0x?

Hmm. Only one player made profit, and that also of only 30 points. Four players made losses, two lost 25, other two lost 50. I would say, I am not in the best position with 100 points, but definitely in one of the better positions. I do hope round 2 isn’t based on 50% luck though.

I was personally a bit disappointed, I expected a few double tickets, but alliances [we all buy 1 ticket, and choose 3 above our amount], etc.

I think it was only luck based if there are no external forces, personally.

Guess it’s time to get two certain people eliminated(coughJaume,Ocelotcough).

</statingobvious>

Why should the bottom two be eliminated? No rules of this game specify that they should be.

Also, hopefully we don’t have to wait another 60 hours for the next round.

 
Flag Post

You’re only saying that because you’re one of the two people.

 
Flag Post

I think we should wait another round before eliminating them.

…if I was eliminating people, I would have eliminated them before now. I’m going to do 3 challenges first btw, like Insight.

Nobody is asking you to eliminate them.

I am talking to the players. Not the host.

So you’re telling me to get eliminated? And how can I do that?

Not talk to both of you, talking to the other players, as you both are easy targets.

So you’re attempting to launch a conspiracy… that’s nice.

[Challenge] Starstruck

They say that the stars can tell the battles of ages. Let’s see if it can tell them right now…

There is a 10×10 grid with 10 stars on it.
Your role will tell you what your goal is, and the relation of the grid/stars to you.

All 17 players will have one of these roles:

5x STARGAZER, 2x INFILTRATOR, 8x OBSERVER, 1x BLACK DEATHSTAR, 1x GOLD DEATHSTAR

Deadline: Undecided. Will be set after a few days.

Where are the stars placed?

Also, does the grid look like this?(The stars are in incorrect positions, of course):
