    So far this is amazing. SB might have something when he talks about State Religation (whatever). The two co-organisers are in the lead, smells fixed to me.
    TM your sums were perfect.
    The next instalment will appear in #1 when it is time.
    Can I say you lovely lot, you are the best and thank you for you partisipation (whatever).

    Poor you. You are in a pithy mood today but you have my sympathy for what it is worth. I do understand it is the one thing after another that finally does you in.
    Did you make a smelling error on your last line? I am having another dense morning.

    Yup that's what happens when I get grumpy, smelling errors. Should have said WIN. Thanks for the laugh.

    But I bet I'm still in the top 5 with a score of zero! Just trying a little humor, not much else to do.....

    Are we into side bets here? What saying I come out of this with more than I started with?
    Funny isnt it. I started this to cheer up Lurchy and to stop him eating worms now I need to cheer you up with ......what!.......
    I tell you what cheers me up. That mischievous, happy, interested face. It does it to me every time.

    YES PLEASE. That way sorting out winners and loosers will be much easier.
    If you fancy doing our job for us then a running total each day would be cool.

    The only problem with this is the fact that to read dialogue and see results the thread does not Blacken as it does with a new post. So if you want to read the various stories going on you need to check right back to No, 1 every day rather than moving straight to the end.

    CB love your lines. Sass rules KO!

    Ok, I'm in for a virtual Ruby. Not sure how the law of averages works here but I'm betting SE to win. Sorry widget, but as I've met her , it would have been rude not to!

    I hope when I inevitably choke to death on gummy bears people just say I was killed by bears and leave it at that....

    I read a survey that said 82% of people enjoy being cuddled. But if the people on this bus are any indication, the real figure is, like 0%

    My other body is in the Photoshop...

    I drink straight out a of the wine bottle while cooking. I think that's what they mean by reducing it.

    I hope I'm not too late, pretty please let me participate to the contest - I so desperately wanna win! It doesn't matter what, just need to feed my compulsion for winning
    I did make the spins yesterday, just didn't have time to post my results.

    Day 1:
    The night has eventually fallen. I can finally get up and leave my habitat. Mean people (or just people in general) call it a coffin, but I find it very cosy and restful. I've added just the latest and coolest gadgets to it the other days, wifi and 3D home cinema. I've put on my best set of teeth and I'm on my way to the Mayan Casino. There is no braid of garlic in this world which could keep me away. I straddle my dark horse an off I go.
    Mmmm...ah, the smell of blood saturates the air as I enter the foggy room full of slot machines and smoke. An A2 positive stands right at the entrance greeting me. A group of three 01s are talking and laughing too loudly at the right corner table...hm, I'm thinking they will most probably get quieter once there'll be only two left. But let's focus - business now, dinner later. Here comes a nice AB4 negative serving bloody-maries. Not my type of blood, not my type of drink.
    I take a sit at the left corner slot machine and I start spinning. I'm on my way to gaining just enough as to fit 4 shinny Swarovski stones on my lovely white fangs. Nobody will have time to notice there're not real diamonds anyway.

    5500 - 3 corns + 1 lily
    10000 - 3 SPs + 1 panther
    11500 - 3 SPs + 1 lily
    4500 - 3 corns + 1 SP
    6000 - 3 panthers + 1 SP
    10000 - 3 SPs + 1 corn
    11500 - 3 SPs + 1 lily
    25000 - 4 corns
    4500 - 3 panthers +1 lily
    25000 - 4 corns

    Spent: 100,000
    Gained: 113,500
    Profit: 13,500

    I had been backpacking all summer, exploring Mayan ruins, trying to reconnect with my mystical me. I decided to drop by the Casino for a little fun and maybe rake in a few coins to further fund my adventures. When I arrived, there was a lady who had set up shop outside. She was selling these beautiful outdoor sculptures made out of Chianti bottles. I told her if I scored big inside I would buy a couple on my way out. She said "Don't bother going in there, there's a wild woman with a unique hair color who wins everything, the machines 'lovveeeeeee her besssstes'".....So I stayed outside, hung out with the sculpture lady all afternoon. We tossed back a few bottles of Chianti and watched the sun set over the magnificent Mayan sky.

    ATTENTION
    ENOUGH ALREADY.
    Some of you are posting day THREE scores when there is still 5 minutes left of day 2.

    Can I say again it is wondeful how you have all got behind this. Your stories are so much better than mine I think I am redundant. Would anyone miss me if I became just a participant and left the story telling alone?

    I just finished reading/getting up to date on the rest of the stories. I am amazed and impressed on the variety and shear brilliance of your creativity. Two in particular impressed me but I am supposed to be impartial so I will mention no names. I definitely sound third rate to you guys.
    In fact I feel so inferior I might just go and eat some of Lurch's left over frogs.

    Yes I know my box is full, again. I just this minute got in and am reading forum first. I will do it within the next hour, torture chamber or not.
    edit. just made a bit of room. will make more later this evening after super.

    My head is done in with all the different time zones. As I understood it the start time was Californian time 9am, UK time 5pm which would make it 6pm European time but when I looked I couldnt find where it says that, it might just be something I heard from a passing seagull. The more I think about it the more it doesnt matter so long as 7 days spins are listed. I had just walked in from a medical appointment which, in itself, was confusing.

    SE and Lurch: I'm loving this contest!!!!! Doesn't matter who wins or what if any prize is awarded. So long as a player has coins to risk, he/she can play and we all win by reading the clever stories.

    Thanks also to all the creative writers. Best laughs of the day on this thread because, in addition to the stories, I get to read Lurch's one liners - so long as he keeps playing - haven't seen his day 3 spins yet. Hint hint!
    Digging - done
    Crafting - done
    Oh no! Was that last dune site?

    After being mugged in the parking lot of all of my coins, I went dumpster diving for some bottles to cash in. Who should I find in there with me, but Salmo. She got most of the good bottles of Chianti to cash in so I was forced to make a go with just old Heineken bottles that Gotta dumped while trying for 2,000,000,000. It got me enough to get one shot at the roulette wheel. I put everything on 00 and by gosh, it came up with a big win. Back to the slots.......Here is todays list of winnings.

    Day 3:

    Spin 1: Gold Coin, 3 red lily 4,000
    Spin 2: Roman, Roman, Coin Roman 8,000
    Spin 3: 3 corn, Coin 5,500
    Spin 4: Roman, Roman, Lily, Roman 10,000
    Spin 5: 3 Corn, Panther 4,500
    Spin 6: 3 Coins, corn 11,500
    Spin 7: Roman, 3 lily 5,500
    Spin 8: 3 Roman, Coin 10,000
    Spin 9: 3 Coins, Roman 11,500
    Spin 10: Corn, 3 Lily 6,000

    Total for Day : 76,500 coin
    Gain/Loss -23,500

    Total Gain/Loss for the game: +6,500 for the three days......

    Should have stayed at the dumpster partying with Salmo!! Would have been more rewarding.....

    I tried to slip my envelope in your mailbox but it is full. When the answer is revealed, I want to know how you were able to do that. Jimbo could use that information for his stra(g)tegies

    I've magically traveled thousands of kilometres to see the beauty of the Mayan Empire with my own eyes. I've heard rumours about its existence and wealth and I find out it is all true. Well, it is still pale in comparison to my giant empire but I want to see more of its night life and mingle with the common people. So I put on my wide shoulder straps dress, my gold threaded black wig and my gold armband. The black thick makeup around my eyes and on my brows will perfectly outline my face. Yes, my nose is rather big and it shows power and determination.
    I manage to sneak out my heavily guarded room, alone. I feel lucky tonight so i'm planning on hitting the nearby Casino. There's a quite handsome guy (unfortunately, he's not tall and dark) lurching at me in the parking lot. What in Ra's name is he looking for in that dumpster?! Empty bottles? I wonder if this is a local custom supposed to bring good-luck at the roulette...
    I graciously enter the Casino. Suddenly the smoggy noisy room turns silent. Everybody turns around, obviously, and stares at me. They should, I am certainly the most beautiful creature they've ever seen. And I smell divine. I sit at the slot machine in the middle of the room, next to a nice lady wearing a sheriff star on her jacket. She's writing numbers and names on a papyrus. Or maybe stories...I bet she's good at telling stories, she shouldn't quit doing that.
    I start playing.

    Day 2:
    8000 - 3 SP + 1 lily
    5500 - 3 corns + 1 lily
    8000 - 3 mayans + 1 panther
    11500 - 3 mayans + 1 lily
    11500 - 3 mayans + 1 SP
    8000 - 3 SPs + 1 lily
    25000 - 4 corns
    10 rubies - 4 mayans
    4000 - 3 panthers + 1 mayan
    11500 - 3 SPs + 1 corn

    Spent: 100,000
    Gained: 93,000 & 10 rubies
    Profit: -7,000 & 10 rubies
    Running total: 6,500 coins & 10 rubies

    Day 3:
    10000 - 3 mayans + 1 corn
    5000 - 3 corns + 1 panther
    6000 - 3 lilies + 1 corn
    4500 - 3 lilies + 1 mayan
    8000 - 3 SPs + 1 lily
    5500 - 3 panthers + 1 mayan
    4000 - 3 lilies + 1 corn
    10000 - 3 SPs + 1 mayan
    8000 - 3 SPs + 1 corn
    10000 - 3 SPs + 1 panther

    Spent: 100,000
    Gained: 71,000
    Profit: -29,000
    Running total: -22,500 coins & 10 rubies

    ATTENTION TOP MOM
    Your maths or mine are haywire your total should be 91,000 not 90,000 and so on.
    If you check and find I am right then dont forget you owe me.

    SE

    If this question is for the general public I don't understand what you asked. Sorry.

    Speaking of questions, I spent an hour last night composing a PM answering some of yours and giving you my opinion about other things and when I tried to send it your mailbox was full again. All my work down the drain, boo hoo. Clear some space sister! You need to keep all 50 slots open so your admiring fans can talk to you in private.

    Also, it looks like you made Maddie and Justin cousins in your storyline. That leaves the door wide open for Jeff to swoop in doesn't it. Very clever.

    It was late in the evening and the Mayan sky had turned to a deep violet. I knew that I would not be able to continue my journey to the Ruins until morning. The artistic British lady I had spent the afternoon with invited me to crash that night at her place. She said she lived right behind the Casino. I accepted her invitation and helped her close down her sculpture display for the night, then we walked behind the Casino to her house. It was a shack of sorts really, something she had built herself out of Chianti bottles. There was an elegance to it though, like the lady herself...classy, she had an Audrey Hepburn /Holly Golightly thing going.

    We talked well into the night and I learned that she had once danced on Broadway . She had lived most of her life in Rome and had enjoyed the high life there until "her Ruby trades dried up" and she lost everything except the Chianti she had been hoarding all those years. She told me she wound up in Maya via a Secret Passage. Then she passed out...I covered her in one of her favorite quilts, the one with a wine glass pattern.

    The noise from the Casino kept me awake for some time, then things began to quiet down as everyone was making their exit. It was a little difficult to see out the windows, they were made of wine bottle glass and were semi opaque, but I could make out some of the figures as they were leaving. I caught a brief glimpse of the "wild woman " as she emerged. The way the moonlight played upon her unique hair color made her appear angelic. She mounted her motorcycle and roared off. Then, the one she called "Lurchie my love", he came stumbling out, took a whiz on a yucca plant, hopped on a little scooter and puttered off into the night. Finally, a very handsome man dressed in a Superman like costume with SB emblazoned on the front came out. He just flew off into the night...

    SE, your sums were correct, I fixed my post. Please keep a check on the math. I had a great algebra, geometry teacher in high school. As long as you had all the steps correct, even if final answer was wrong because of "mechanical error (addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division)" she only deducted 1 point. I would have failed for sure as we did not have calculators then. LOL
