Entered your local Starbirds, like every other morning. Noticed posters for a new promotion: the Starbirds Energy Games. Stuck peel-off stickers onto every cup of coffee. Promised a prize on every one. Hid better items on Birds of Paradise (specialty coffee) than on Ravens (black coffee). Identified the top potential prize as $5000.
Reminded you of a grandparent. Loved coffee and money (mostly money). Justifies dropping cash in hopes of nice stuff, right?
How to play:
Begins with $100 dollars. Costs $2 per Raven or $5 per Bird of Paradise. Post how many of each you wish to purchase. Aims to acquire as much money as possible. Ends the game upon depleting the stock.
Contends other players and non-player crowds. Expect non-player purchases about once per day. Might wish to let them buy coffee to improve your odds.
Mainly seeks to complete either the Bird of Paradise Set or the Raven Set. Combines for $5000 and $1000, respectively. Finds them on the corresponding coffee.
New from Ice Cream Factory: Permits selling prizes. Automatically sells common items. Allows purchasing specific items (such as set pieces) at their cost. Cannot buy or sell anything worth $100 or more. (Breaks the game otherwise.) Adds to your ending money count.
