Greed Control Brief Documentation

The game of Greed Control is based on a simple forum game. Every day, pick an integer number between the numbers shown on the game page. For example, a number between 1 and 50.

At the end of the day, which is defined as midnight eastern time, 9 pm pacific, a calculation is performed to determine how many points you earn. The number of points is defined by (number picked) / (number of people choosing the number).

For example, if 4 people choose the number 20, each will receive 20 / 4 = 5 points. If only 1 person chooses the number 9, that person will receive 9 / 1 = 9 points. Notice how even though the person who chose 9 picked a number less than 20, that person still gains more points as the number 9 was picked less.

The current game is set to end when someone reaches 400 points.
