    The Hype Mole Mission 4: Bidding War

    Welcome to the fourth mission and congratulations to all who have made it this far...as in turning your quiz in on time:o Anyways, you failed the previous mission and didn't get into the safe. But alas, this mission will give you the opportunity to gain more information on who the mole is. This mission will see who is greedy and who is smart. The mole had a contact and fortunately he has decided to sell some secrets of his own by double crossing the mole. His name is Morocco Mole as you would have imagined.

    The mission is simple. You will each be given $10 to bid on items that the double agent has put up for sale. The player that bids the most money on an item(s) will win it for future use. Some items have to do with your personal gain or loss in this game and some items will have to do with who the mole actually is.

    Now be smart and be crafty to gain for yourself or to gain for your entire team (which I doubt will happen but it has its rewards). You can team up with another player to pool your money or you can go it alone. Be careful and be smart and pay attention to your surroundings. Not everyone will win something. You have the entire weekend to do this and I will keep up with how much money each player has. All you have to do is post "I bid $XX on Item X. DO NOT USE CENTS...ONLY WHOLE AMOUNTS! The auction ends on Monday at 5:00 pm CST.





    Bidding War Winners!

    Ok, here are the items:
    Remember if you do happen to get executed, your prize(s) will be forfeited, so use them wisely.

    Item 1 (+2)
    This gives you a +2 on any quiz whenever you intend to use it (except your final quiz).

    Item 2 (Nuetralizer)
    This can be used against ANYONE during any one mission (except the last mission). Even if that person already has an exemption, you can use it to neutralize them. This will result in them giving up their exemption regardless of whether they want to or not. It also neutralizes +'s or -'s on quizzes.

    Item 3 (Exemption)
    The most powerful prize...it grants you a guaranteed reprieve on the quiz you decide to use it (except the final quiz) no matter how bad you do. This will guarantee you a spot in the next round. That is unless of course somebody neutralizes you.

    Item 4 (Mole Clue)
    This is a clue to the mole's identity. If you win, you will be given the clue and can choose to share it or keep it to yourself. It may be a very valuable clue or just something to keep you on a goose chase.

    Item 5 (Mystery Box)
    This is an unopened box that may contain something very valuable or something very invaluable to you. The winner will get to see what is actually in the box and can do what with the object(s) they see fit.

    I will keep track of how much money you have as well and team pooling I will keep hidden. If you wish to team up to pool your money, I need all players to send me a pm requesting to do so along with who you are teaming up with.

    Why don't we split up the prizes between ourselves so we can all share the final answers with one another?

    Update...I have made it $10 instead of $100 bucks because you ganstas are taking it slow and I don't want to count 1-100 for 8 of you. This will not affect the game in anyway. HAVE FUN:woot:

    I will. I just want to make sure the mole doesn't win this item then tells us something that isn't the real clue. And I don't think your the mole, its just I don't trust anyone.

    3$ on Item 3 chase.

    Rando bids 10 dollars on item 5.

    Oh and remember, if you are pooling your money, I need the entire party to pm me each telling me the intent.
