Stock Ticker: House church strategy


Stock Ticker: House church strategy


My vacation is over and I had a great weekend to round things off.  I had hoped to be at Bethany on Friday but I was way too jet lagged.  House church was really good today.  We were missing a few folks so we switched gears and played some enhanced Stock Ticker.  I say enhanced because I built a little web app a few years ago to handle all the finacial transactions and display net worth in real time.  We still roll the dice, and move the markers up and down, but everything else happens on the screen.  Great fun.  My rivalry with Scott was resurrected and he overtook me in the final round.  Cudos to the mighty Random who joined us for the game and emerged victorious.

    Stock Ticker is my favourite board game ever! You guys have the coolest church ever! (But I realize that’s not the point).

    Marc:

    Next time you play, you might want to use the web enhanced version. You still use the board and the dice but this little web app does all the financial calcuations for you.

    We find it enhances the game significantly.

    Cool. Will do.

    I enjoy the game so much that I sometimes play it by myself. (Yes, there is a big L on my forehead). I never want to stop when I do manage to coax the rest of my family into playing, but they always want a “time limit”. Bah. I never win, although I’ve made profits into the tens of thousands (if not hundreds of thousands). I think my wife and I once played for something like 8 hours.

    Maybe we should organize a Blogger Stock Ticker Marathon. We play until last man standing. What do you think?

    Shoot! I always do that….there. I meant to only make the “L” on my forehead bold.

    Sorry Marc, we play with time limits.

    And you call yourself a Stock Ticker player!

    I told you I was a loser.

    That’s a handy-dandy web app, by the way. One more reason to get wireless.

    Just to let you know, I think playing a blogger stock ticker would be awesome!!! I enjoy playing the game, but I don’t win. :) I think if we played last man standing, that might take ages, but I wouldn’t mind giving it a try some time. lol
