How to play:
This game is open to everyone.
You are a producer of liquid gold. Each round, you can decide how many non-negative integer units of liquid gold you want to produce.
To do so, reply to my comment which states which round it is. You may only submit 1 entry each round, and may not edit the entry once you have submitted it.
Any attempt to cheat (deleting / editing / faking / unnecessarily confounding others) will result in immediate and forever disqualification. Tzar Calvin's decisions are final, and you will have no court of appeal.
How to keep score:
You can go into debt to the amount of -$5000. Anyone who crosses that is out of the game.
The cost of production is $100 per unit. This cost has to be paid once you place the order, and the amount that you can order is dependent on your cash on hand.
Note that in your first round, your maximum order size is 50.
The Quantity that you produce is denoted as , and the Total Quantity of production is .
The price that a unit of liquid gold sells for is .
At the end of the round, you will be credited with . Note that it is possible to lose money from your actions in a round.
The winner is the person with the most money at the end of all the rounds.
When to play:
The rounds will open very close to (figure out your time zone):
When the round is open, you can submit your entry at any point in time. Of course, the longer you wait, the more certainty you get from the actions of others, since they cannot change their declared production values. However, the round will be closed (by locking of this note) at an undisclosed point in time, and you will not be able to submit your production for that round.
Note: Each round will last at least 5 mins, and at most 20 mins. I do not know the probability distribution of the closing time, but you can be certain that it is not uniform.
