Whirl of Misfortune.

Post by WhirlPlaid » Mon Oct 14, 2013 3:59 pm

Ahoy me fantastic sailin' buckos!

Welcome to th' Whirl 'o Misfortune.


Step up, spin th' wheel, guess a letter, win a prize.

Th' battle be extra simple, once ye guess a letter, ye host gunna spin th' Wheel 'o Misfortune (roll a 20 sided die) to determine how much doubloons ye gunna be fightin' fer. If ye letter be part 'o th' solution, ye gunna receive th' doubloon amount fer each correct letter found in th' answer.

In order to keep th' winnin' amount ye must be th' player to provide th' complete 'n correct answer.

Thar be no turn order, nor do ye need to be signed up to fight, just guess a letter 'n spy wit' ye eye if it be in th' solution.

Here are the 20 possible spaces on the Wheel of Misfortune, do you dare spin and play?

1. $100.00
2. No doubloons for you, do 10 push ups.
3. $150.00
4. No doubloons for you, do 20 crunches.
5. $200.00
6. No doubloons for you, do 30 jumping jacks.
7. $250.00
8. $100.00
9. Bankrupt! (lose all your doubloons earned to this point for this puzzle)
10. $1000.00
11. $150.00
12. No doubloons for you, clean your room.
13. No doubloons for you, compliment a Quarter Master.
14. $50.00
15. $500.00
16. $300.00
17. $100.00 plus an "eliminate one strike" pass.
18. $250.00
19. $300.00
20. No doubloons for you, dance naked.

If ye have previously guessed a correct letter 'n have accumulated some doubloons then ye have th' option to buy a vowel. Receive all vowels 'o ye designation fer a measly sum 'o $250.00.

Ye may give a go' to solve th' puzzle at any the hour.

Any incorrect guess for letter, vowel, or puzzle will result in a strike. Receive three strikes and be eliminated from the puzzle round.

Only th' person that solves th' puzzle gets to keep their doubloons earned fer that round. At th' end 'o th' month, th' person who has accumulated th' most doubloons wins.

After guessin' a letter 'n th' host spinnin' th' wheel, landin' on a non doubloon amount does not result in a strike.

***All rules subject to change without prior notice***

:facepalm are earned by solving a puzzle but have Zero dollars for the round.
Rule addition: You may not make two requests per post.
RULES CHANGE: Any :facepalm will result in a negative $300.00.

On October 23rd the dollar amounts on the wheel will be increased across the board and the "no doubloons for you" spaces will be heavily diminished.

Players may not have more unanswered questions than strikes remaining during the round. If unanswered questions exceed available strikes, the remaining unanswered questions will not be accepted and will be referenced as to why they were skipped.

Players may not have more than three unanswered requests open at any given time. If a player makes a request with the implied use of a "free spin", used or unused, the "free spin" will be removed from the players account.

Guys. Hey guys...

You are supposed to try to win some money before you guess the answer. Like Wheel of Fortune. If you win with no money, you don't really win!
