Ok, I added the time rule.  If a Bear sits stagnant for 48 hours, it resets.

Doesn't this make the odds of winning much smaller?

The odds for an normal random reset are the same, but yes, the time limit does affect the overall odds of the game.

The thing is, though, that the player has some control over this part of the equation, as they can share and pass the word around, finding the next buyer.

In my opinion that might make more sense once you have more traffic, because at the moment it looks like those bears haven't moved a whole lot in a few days, so the risk of resetting due to time is quite high. I admit I am an owner of one of the bears and I'd prefer not to lose that investment so soon :/

Just curious, how do you calculate the odds of someone stepping in to become the "greater fool?"  Assuming your site had little to no traffic, the odds could theoretically be zero.

Well, part of the deal is to encourage players to help with traffic to help protect their investment. Sharing the site is an important part of that.

The thing we are trying to avoid is stagnant Bears.  If you have a better alternative, please let us know.

Why not make it a 72 hour reset? I think 48 hours is a little ridiculous or too quick.

yeah, I agree.  I changed it to 72 hours.

Do we even need the random reset now, though?

This is an awesome idea, hope it grows and you make a good profit!

I can see this would be something that would benefit greatly by social media.

thank you!

yes, I have been looking into ways to incorporate social media more into the game. 

I've thought about being able to share your BitBear, and then it disappears when someone else buys it. It would be really great to get a FB game developed around this.

Also, posting to twitter when anyone buys a BitBear, so you can get updates on the progress.

Any ideas?

one issue i see is that i think most people will go for the lowest price bear.

it follows then, that when the bears are all exactly the same price it is a bad time to buy one. (because then your bear will be the most expensive).

seems it would be better to wait until 2/3 bears are bought and then try to get the cheap one, giving you more chance to get a buyer


...but then again, i don't have visitor/buyer stats so all of the above is just speculation Cheesy


to counter-act the above, if it is indeed an issue, make the starting price different for each bear, such that they never end up having exactly the same price as one of the others.

erm, another idea...

you could make it so that the owner of a bear can do things to make their bear more attractive to potential buyers... eg. dress it in a funny hat or whatever, make a speech bubble that says "pick me"... etc. so that then they are unique and more tailored to the owner's personality (and marketing ability!). rather than price being the only consideration.

yeah, the competition has been interesting.  It is not only price that decides, because when it is moving fast, we are waiting for confirmations, so some bears are offline.  So, timing is also a factor.

I like the idea about customizing the bears, that could get really fun.  Now, if you could then share the image of your customized Bear on the social networks, even better.  Kinda like a meme generator.

we're having server issues.  The host is getting things back up.  It is up, now, but the server has been acting up today, so i expect they will be migrating everything to a new machine later.

the game has been progressing nicely.  We've gone through a few rounds, and I am happy with how it is performing.  At this point, I think I am going to let it run for a bit and see how popular it becomes.

My thoughts for improvements are taking out the random reset, and implementing a Facebook game with BtBears so that you can play through the social media sites.

Thanks to everyone for playing, and let me know if you have ideas for making things better.

BitBears has no random reset, now!  So, it's even easier to earn more.  No need to worry about triggering the reset, play without fear!

Just buy, share, and profit!
