Hi again, my 7th7 games for newbies (1
) almost became a good tradition last summer... Unfortunately, I abandoned this amazing initiative for a while, but now this game is getting its second wind. This is twitter-based game now and it should be more dynamic and entertaining.
So, the first word to start is coming soon (it depends on number of participants) and new era in bitcoin history will come
. Follow us on Twitter: @7th7game
Bitrain (7th Seven game)
A simple game with healthy competition
Participation is free for everyone
! Just participate and gain money. Recommended for newbies to get some coins to play with.Rules
) start the game by posting a word in English with #bitrain
hash-tag on Twitter (saying word we always mean something findable in Oxford English Dictionary and some widely used brand names such as Bitcoin, Twitter, etc ). The next player have to respond with another word starting with the last letter of the previous (*correct
) word posted with #bitrain
hash-tag and so on (like seven-noble-eagle-economics-sound-doom-mark(7th! + 1 point)-killer-room(2nd round)...). Your aim is to be on the 7th position in the chain 7 times
(or 3 times for express-games) to win the game but you can't respond to your own words (only to somebody else's), except for the 6th word in the chain - if you are 6th, you may wait 2 minutes (120 sec. at least) and respond it to be 7th (but somebody else may do it before!). If the error occurred, you have to find the last word which is correct and respond to it (yeah, there are no guarantees that the last word in the chain is correct).. Just ignore all the combo-breakers
You have to have your own bitcoin adress (what is it?
) to receive your prize. Example
