You might remember the stock market game we played from June to October. I don't know if it was reported, but the top 5 were:

1. JaxsonRaine - Over $31 million
2. Daytonanerd - Over $27 million
3. Me (1Historygenius) - Over $27 million
Does anyone know why they used my real name and not my usersname?
4. twocupcakes - Over $27 million
5. king man (who is that?) - Over $26 million

That being said, would anyone like to start a second game? I would open it up starting my Christmas break where have time to do a lot of time on my hands and I hope you all do to.

Here is the link to the original: http://www.marketwatch.com...

Here is a poll asking to start a new one: http://poll.pollcode.com...

Its a stock market simulation game where you get $25 million to invest into actual stock prices and stuff.

A stock market game. You are given $25 million dollars (obviously not real). People compete to get the most net worth through buying and selling stocks. It goes for a limited amount of time (several months). Remember the time trades can be made is around the time the market is open. After that you can still make orders, but you must wait for the next day the market opens.

I enjoyed the game overall. That is why I am asking to create a second one.

So much for the rich Jew stereotype.

Is this a luck game, or do the people actually know what they're doing?

There is always time to learn if you want to join. I have scheduled the game to start on the 21st.
