There will be as many rounds as there are players, all played at once. Once signed up you will be given eight chips of certain point values, five chips worth one point each, two chips worth five points each, one chip worth ten points, and an almighty TRUMP CHIP. You will then tell me what chips you wish to play during any given round. In a round, the person who plays the highest value of chips is awarded all the chips on the table in that round. Once a chip has been played, it cannot be played again, and there is also the Trump Chip, where if only one player plays it, they are awarded all chips on the table regardless if they had the highest value played. If more than one player plays the trump chip, they are cancelled out by one another and the chips are by default awarded to the person who played the highest. Ties for highest chip amount played will always be settled in the richest player's favor. If no chips are played, no chips are awarded. Once all the rounds have been played, each person earns the point value of each chip in their position and the person with the most points wins. In the event that there is a tie between players, the one who kept their Trump Chip will be awarded the win. If all players involved in the tie have their Trump Chip, then the person who played the highest value in a single round will be awarded the win. If everyone in the tie meets that circumstance then a tie it shall be. Feeling lucky? Gamblers: 1. Zag 2. lexprod 3. MNOWAX_________________Potato. Belgium. Eight.

If you played your trump chip and won it back, I assume that counts as having kept it? Or do you actually have to keep it, never having risked it. Edit: Also, what if you lose your own trump chip, but win back some others?Last edited by Zag on Wed Jan 20, 2010 12:33 am; edited 1 time in total

This is the only exception to the whole winning chips back is that once the trump chip has been played it is then discarded whether or not you were the only one to play it as only the people who take the extra measure are helped to avoid the dreaded tie.

You'll submit what chips you want to play for each round. Remember, once a chip has been played you cannot play it again and once trump chips are played they are discarded after no matter what. If you would kindly send your submissions...

But the important thing is he lost, and both of you were one step away from winning. Ah well, good effort to all of you, can't say much would happen with three players now can we? _________________Potato. Belgium. Eight. Random Lynch # Mafia awaits.

Did I hasten to leave out that 'all' included the trump chip?

Oh. Then he should be disqualified for bad play.

So then MNO, by never betting anything, still has all his chips AND his trump chip. The rules did not quite say that you have to bet your chips, did they?

Exactly, therefore you and Zag tie for you are both in the same condition.

Actually if Lex did use his trump chip, then I should have won because of that above (which i assume you mean possession instead of position), which was exactly what i was going for. I still get the point value of my chips as it reads now, and since i am the only one with a Trump chip, I win, correct?

Well it was meant to apply to the people in the tie, but since you earned no points, you wouldn't be eligible for the tiebreaking scenario.

After carefully rereading (my own ) rules it says that all chips a player is holding would award them points, stupid mod will now go sit in a corner and rightfully award MNOWAX the win as he still holds the trump chip as well as the same amount as Zag and lex.

So in a stunning turn of post-game events it seems the person who chose to 'break the game and other people's strategies'. MNOWAX is now the winner of Chump Trips er, Trump Chips!

P.S. MNoWAX, got any opinions on 'The King' so far? *wink wink*
