So here's the deal; I just made an account on Marketwatch.com to play their virtual stocks game. I just made a room, I'll post the information below. You'll start out with nothing in your portfolio, and a set amount of money. The stock values are updated according to the real-life amounts, and you can 'buy' stock in REAL companies at their REAL values at REAL time. The only difference between this game and buying actual stock is that you don't actually pay for the shares and you can't make profit/debt off it.

URL is here.
Password: UG_FTW

The game won't start until next Monday(10/8/12) to give people a chance to join and research their potential stocks and lasts until a month from then(10/8/12). Being as that I don't know stocks very well, I'm just leaving the game settings at the default values.

You do have to make an account, but it's free and just takes a few minutes. Post your name here and I'll compile a list of usernames here and there.

L2112L2f - Gregory "Dicks" McGregor
Hydra150 - Bry Gle
nosraltserrof - Forrest Larson
GoxGetterxGuy - John Hemmerich
daytripper75 - Rusty Shackleford

So, will you become rich or lose it all?


GAME OVER

Congrats to This Guy, for winning $143,839.12 over his initial amount. Also congrats to Jack Jonny McJonJones for losing $38,746.07 from the initial $100,000. Anyone opposed to a new game? Maybe a longer one?

This sounds quite interesting actually. It sounds like it'd be fun with a lot of people.

Sounds pretty cool although I know absolutely nothing about stocks. I'm expecting you guys to give us "scoops", like flying shoes or something so we can buy the virtual internet with our virtual money.

I have no idea what I just signed up for. Someone at some point this week needs to explain this tomfoolery in simple terms.

You start with $100K. You play a virtual stock market, updated real time, as if you were investing real money. Whoever has the most money wins.

Why do so many guitarists and drummers come here to ask help for their bass players?? Are we that shy in the wild?

Use bait!

Bass player looks nervous!

Use safari ball!

You can start now, but you're not going to make/lose any money until Monday when it opens.

so do we do anything besides check up once in a while?

I have investments in DTF, FUN, and the CIA. Beat that.

EDIT: I don't know what any of this shit means so I would not be surprised if I got down to $0 quickly.
