Knights of Swim: Office Betting Pool

[ Edited ]

Basically all betting areas must first be approved to be "official".

 

Any player (or anyone else for that matter) may propose something for an office betting pool.  It has to be something that nobody participating can already know, or have control over, the outcome of.

 

Once a pool suggestion is accepted and made "official", it will be posted as such in this thread, along with a list of choices (if applicable). 

 

Players may then "bet" xp on the outcome.

 

If you win, you gain xp.  If you lose, you lose the xp you bet.  The bets can have varying payouts based on the nature and difficulty of the pool and the odds of the specific choice made by the person betting.

 

Pools may vary in their rules depending on what they are about.  So as each pool is posted, be sure to read the rules for it.

 

Some betting pools may also have extra prizes associated with them beyond just the xp bonus, like in-game items or abilities.

 

Anyone can submit an office pool proposal (even non-knight observers).

That's a good one.

 

We can do that one.

 

Basically eh, just do it straight up.

 

the Official betting Pool Iten then:

 

Is Peyton Manning staying with the colts?

 

simple yes or no bet there.

 

then the Side pool...

 

where's he going if he's not.

 

If you pick "Yes" for the first part, you can still participate in the side pool.

 

You can't bet more xp than you actually have.  Winners will get what they bet back plus more.  Losers will lose the xp they bet.  

 

We're running the "pool" as if many other coworkers are also in it.  So the actual "pool" will be bigger than just the players or onlookers who throw a guess in make it.  So there will actually sometimes be more points paid out than it looks like were in it, that's why.

I'll bet 10xp on him staying to spite having no idea what I'm talking about. I'm hoping 10xp is a fairly small amount.

You guys are going to have to remind me whenever this story finally breaks because it's not something I pay attention to usually (sports type news).
