 Posted: Mon Apr 05, 2010 1:16 am    Post subject: 1 I have 1000 points to give away. This game is for exactly 10 people. Each player must send me a number stating how many points they would like. I will put the requests in order from least (spot 1) to highest (spot 10). Then I will give each player the full amount they request, until the 1000 points are gone, in the following order: 4, 3, 2, 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and then 10. The person who gets the highest number of points wins! I am the type of person who opens the message even if the submission is in the title. If you are the type of person who likes to send the submission in the subject, make it "Points: YYYY".Last edited by MatthewV on Thu Apr 08, 2010 12:59 am; edited 3 times in total

(unless it is spot 10 and they asked for less) If there is a tie and the players should be getting points, all players in that spot will get the same number of points. If I run out, fractional points will be given to make it exactly even.
