There are 14 squares left, so picking 7 should be enough.

10, 12, 2, 9, 22, 1, 4. This should end the round...

Well, we're stuck unless we get another player. You would be in Round 24, which Springmaster would be forced to host, since we're down to exactly 7 players.

I can wait nine days, though. No one will be jeopardizing the future of the universe yet, so you can just call the 1-WEEK TIMEOUT square and kill the thread.

Oh by the way, I'd like a win bonus. :D He's going to hate me SO MUCH when he's back.

Edit: I did the math for you on the win bonus. It's £110,000 which is multiplied by five to £550,000. My total becomes £7,227,845.05 if I added that right, but Firefox is actually being silly and not letting me paste the scoreboard into this post.

You could even lock the thread and open it again when 999_Springs is ready to open up shop.

Also, the (WTF?!) on bufar's score. It happened when he had 1p in his total and he had to give 2% of his money up...

Well, typos. First you spelt Daikenkai's (transliterated) name wrong a lot. And as Pikman pointed out, you didn't include his win bonus. And you also didn't credit me for the £75,000 square in most of your posts, but the threshold situation is actually supposed to lose you £75,000, so those just cancel each other out, coincidentally enough. And finally, you messed up Daikenkai with Rule when trying to update the first post. Fail.



Enough with the typos, now comes the bit where I EAT PIKMAN. *CHOMP* *CHOMP* *BUUUURRRRRP*

SO CLOSE to getting all those bonuses. I had a bomb placed behind square 2, third on Pikman's list. GRRROWRRRRR.

Round 24 starts shortly, and this time the board will be slightly more revenge-on-Pikman style. You have been warned.

Edit: 29403 what is confusing about the 3rd->7th notation? Example

Well since 29403 seems to be the only one interested in this at the moment I'll create a reduced version for now with a slightly changed board and minor adjustments to the rules.

Here's the Round 24 board:

Image

Players:
29403

Rules: 29403 has 48 hours to place his bomb on the board. If he doesn't comply then his bomb will be placed at random. Once he's done that the round starts and in order to win he has to clear the entire board without hitting any bombs. Simple as that.

29403 teleports himself into RTaBLand (which is, oddly enough, two-dimensional) in order to try and open square 1 to reveal its contents. However, as soon as he does so, he discovers that inside square 1 there isn't actually anything except for a slightly smaller square inside it, which appears completely identical to the square 1 he just opened, but... slightly smaller. He picks up the slightly smaller square in amusement and tries shaking it to discern what might be inside. After a while, not really revealing anything, he starts to suspect that this is a Russian doll-type thing where the squares only hide smaller squares which then only hide smaller squares until at the very end there is a ridiculously tiny square with a joke present inside it. However at the moment all this was just contemplation, and he was just as clueless as he originally was.

Then on closer observation he discovered that the smaller square actually had a slightly smaller number written on it and he started to become very suspicious that this was actually what was happening...
