Overview

The TV series that this games connects to is called “The Tropical Adventure Competition.” The game is based on Kroger game points and our own crypto currency called “loonies”, (short for dubloons).  Employment and a higher quality of life for people with disabilities is the goal of the TV series and the game.

The Pirate Dive Bar is the arena where the game is played and the broadcast is created.  We are similar to major sports and the Olympics where the sports organizations are nonprofits and the broadcasters and vendors are for profit.

A nonprofit called the Atlanta Volunteers and a for profit business called Dolphin Rodeo Inc. operate the Pirate Dive Bar. This is similar to the business structure that the nonprofit N.F.L., N.H.L., P.G.A. and the Olympics have with for profit broadcasters such as ABC, CBS, NBC and vendors of all kinds from cars to food.  Even though the N.F.L. is a nonprofit, Roger Goodell, the commisioner was paid 44.2 million in compensation.  Broadcasting businesses and vendors earn much more than he did.  Individual players earn millions. What will happen here during season three?

Each person can have as many avatars as they want.  Each avatar controls four characters. They are the Hero Sailor, Villain Pirate, Seductive Catfisher and Hungry Catfish.  There are more characters, these are different types of Landlubbers that are not playing the game, yet. Avatars plan with sailors, plot with pirates while catfishers troll to get landlubbers involved in the game. Hungry catfish are used as an example to teach the landlubber how to feed and then be fished into the game.  With honest hard work the Sailor donates to the nonprofit.  The Pirate lies, bribes, cheats and steals booty to give to the nonprofit.  The Catfisher sells goods and services and the Catfish buy goods and services.  Each avatar is also their own bank.  They can inflate and deflate their currency the same way wall street and the real life Pirates, the Federal Reserve does with the US dollar.

Servers and entertainers are key fund raisers and are the only people that can redeem loonies directly from us for cash.  For these workers, loonies have real value and are paid as tips for the valuable fundraising work they do for the Atlanta Volunteers. For everyone else, loonies are worthless electronic game points that can be mysteriously redeemed for goods and services. This mystery exchange is also the basis of the fiat currency you use everyday. This game will convince you in the same way that a fiat currency does, that these magic beans called loonies, have real value, but they do not.

The object of the game is the same as crypto currency, the US dollar, wall street stocks, actors with plastic surgery, fine art, hard work or a diploma. “You use any means possible as a sailor, pirate, catfisher or catfish to convince others that what you have is valuable.”   They pay you more than what you have is worth and you profit.

Servers, Hosts & Entertainers

These are the most valuable players in this game!

Each person has their own leaderboard so they can see who tips them the most! This creates a competition from customers to be the best tipper! 5 servers, hosts or entertainers will win the Second Grand Prize and compete for the First Grand Prize!

When an entertainer is playing music you like, wouldn’t you like an easy way to tip them without using your credit card or walking up while their playing?  If the host you met was doing a really good job wouldn’t you like an easy way to send them a tip?

We call servers, hosts and entertainers, fundraisers.  (Karaoke DJ’s are considered entertainers along with bands, comedians, speakers, organization leaders, party hosts and artists.)  These people are vital to the fundraising process and creating content for the TV series.  20% of all donations to the nonprofit go towards fundraising expenses and tipping fundraisers.  This 20% includes donations directly to the nonprofit from people and corporations along with the purchase of loonies.

In addition to the nonprofit tipping fundraisers, there are more than a dozen different ways fundraisers can turn loonies into cash and increase the amount of cash tips they get. We want fundraisers to make money and we will strongly support their efforts.

Here is one way a fundraiser can get bigger tips. After a game, contest or challenge is over and players are finished playing, they can give their loonies to the fundraisers as tips.  The fundraisers can redeem these loonies for cash or keep them until the next game.  Instead of players buying loonies from Paypal when a new game starts, they can buy them with cash from the fundraisers.  You can transfer loonies faster than a credit card swipe can process and no banking, credit card or personal information is needed, ever!

Here is the magical part of how our loonies can be traded for cash.  A player may not want to use their credit card to buy loonies from Paypal.  The fundraiser can step in and say “I will sell loonies for cash.” 

Online the player would pay 25 cents for each loonie.  The fundraiser can sell for loonies for the same price, a higher price or a lower price.  The fundraiser keeps the cash as a tip, the same as any other tip.

For example, the fundraiser could undercut our Paypal price and sell loonies for 5 or 6 for a dollar instead of our price (with a credit card)  4 for a dollar.   The player would get a better deal buying loonies and less problems when they buy them with cash from the fundraiser.  This would benefit the fundraiser and the player.  If there is a lot of demand for the loonies the fundraiser might sell them for 2 or 3 for a dollar so that people do not have the problems of using a credit card and can pay cash.  This increases the profitability or demand of the loonie depending on your chosen sale price.  This is an example of making a profit whether you are inflating or deflating the value of loonies.   This manipulates or corners the market just like they do on wall street or at the Federal Reserve. 

The bargaining price for loonies is completely up to the fundraiser and they keep the cash.

Leaderboards

There are game and category leaderboards and each player has their own leaderboard on their profile. The players leaderboard shows who sends them the most loonies.  Players can also look at anyone’s profile to see who is the most likely to tip, bet, challenge or buy with loonies. They can then fish for that player.  The leaderboard tells you who deserves the most attention and who is the biggest catfish.  Leaderboards show the people that like you and they are the ones you should spend the most time with and be the nicest to.  People will compete with tips to be at the top of your favorites list, and this is great for your tips.

Leaderboards give valuable fishing information to pirates and catfishers, but mermaids and sharks can appear as catfish only to lead Pirates and Catfishers to their doom.

Contests, Challenges, Betting and Bribes

 Nothing is binding at the Pirate Dive Bar and the winner takes all.  In some cases winners might actually comply with their promise to who gets what share of the booty.  This is where fundraisers can start contests that result in tips just for them, or half for them and half for the bootymaster or whatever manner of division they want.  Fundraisers can use their leaderboards to easily create tipping contests between players.

Any kind of betting is legal with loonies as they are electronic game points and are not poker chips that you redeem for cash. Think of getting a bunch of tickets at an arcade.  Before taking them to the prize counter, you sell them to somebody for $20.  Nobody in their right mind would buy them for $20 but this is exactly how worthless loonies are exchanged for cash.  You can trade, barter, bet, steal, cheat and bribe with loonies and this is all perfectly legal as loonies are just game points. They have the same value as an arcade ticket that you take to the prize counter, nothing.

If you want to compete against other players for grand prizesompete against other players to win one of the grand prizes, you will have to compete against other players.
