Post number N wins

Postby faubi » Mon Jan 22, 2018 10:19 pm UTC

I've randomly generated a secret number N from 1 to 1000. Whoever posts the Nth reply to this thread wins the game!

However, the number is secret, so no one will know in advance what the winning post will be. Once this thread reaches 1000 replies I'll reveal what the secret number N is and who posted the winning post. The more posts you make, the more chances you have to win (though as usual, double posting is not allowed). Since I know what the number N is already, I won't be posting in this thread until the reveal at the end.

In order to prove that I've generated the number N in advance instead of determining the winner after the fact, here is the SHA-256 hash of N prefixed by a nonce value which I will reveal along with N: 951f57f4ce4c418cfb523e93ce9faa1409c093fcc940b9ab22ddfa83949497dc

With all that said, let's go!

Edit: Also, since I can't post in the thread, if there's any clarifications I need to make I'll simply edit them in at the end of this opening post like this.

No, we don't guess - we win if our post happens to be the right number. i.e. This is the eighth post in the thread, so if the number is 8 then I've won.

I... see. Never mind then. I got the rules confused AGAIN and I am fighting the feeling that I wanna give up on forum games. Why I even come here no one wanna Hear ANYTHING I have to say anyways? Not a complaint about the game we're in I got the rules now. Just post until whoever posts to the secret number right? ANYWAYS W/E I might as well quit if I can NEVER get the right version of the rules and posting appropriately.

This is forum games, I think breaking the rules is part of the fun. Or it would be if you actually broke any rule. And misunderstanding the rules is how better versions of say, Monopoly or Uno emerge. Embrace it. Read rules upside down, in reverse order or read only every second rule and guess the ones between them.

somitomi's rules reading advices, like, light up my life. I'm starstruck and now: I ponder, "Do I try to get to sleep? Play another trading cards game matches? Flirt badly on xkcd forums and my FaiD diary?" WHO KNOWS? And I left my spaceship's keys on Coruscant apparently. How I gonna find a tiny set of metallic keys on a gigantic city-planet?

Those white arms-length gloves look nice on a flicky~ Of course, everything looks nice on a flicky so? She could be wearing... next to nothing and... oh my. I think I've gone and got myself worked up again.
