I'd like to test out a new game.
It might suck, it might be awesome.  I don't know yet.
Help me give it a go.

Rules:
1) To take the hill, you must solve the problem or answer the question of/from the person currently on the hill.
2) You must then post "I now control the hill" and supply your own question or problem.
3) Answers do not have to be accurate or correct, but they must exist on a Google search. (page 1)
4) If you declare I now control the hill without a google link, you'll be murdered by a sniper from an adjacent hill and the previous controller will resume.

Last person on the hill, gets .01 bitcoin.

*Shorter if you tunnel.
Right click -> "Search with Google" ruins it for everyone.

Google now controls the hill

I was just coming back here to post -

I'm going to come up with a good one...

Everyone will snipe whoever controls the hill. You gotta factor that.

Yeah - there are all kind of flaws in the game as it was originally explained.

I'm determined to come up with a game along these lines - but, I haven't nailed it yet.
Just the ill conceived version...

Stay tuned.

I'm curious what you really want to do. You can make a provably fair version as a game of chance, essentially using random numbers from hashes of both players fighting for the hill. Of course, then whoever controls the hill only has a 50% chance of retaining control unless you introduce other factors like, shields, power ups, longevity, hit points, or superhero powers, jedi force, etc.

Then it becomes a sort of RPG or Diablo clone. You'll need 3D graphics. I'm sure the bitcoiners here have awesome graphics cards. I'm pretty sure the litecoiners have really awesome graphic cards.

It's hard to explain - it's an endless game where the current person can be pushed off the hill by someone smarter or more clever.
We play this in IRL and it's fun trying to outdo each other.

I love how smart people's brains work - and this is kind of an exercise for us.
