Games like that are no fun. I like games with blood and violence! Maybe I'll join if I'm really really really bored sometime.

You are welcome to join us in the D&D game, if that's the case.

I'll play - sign me up for 100% Enron - since I'd come in last no matter what I picked.

I can't find anywhere on how they determine pricing on your orders? Is it from delayed quotes or actual at-the-moment pricing? They should at least execute orders with realtime data to prevent cheating, even if they only provide you delayed quotes. I'm in!

Man, it's a bad time to invest in evil and vice! I'm way down across the board...oil, casinos, and tobacco are all taking a hit.

Yes we can, Hobartlemagne. And Taerom, don't worry -- you're down, but are still doing a lot better than I am!

Edit: Oops, actually I'm not sure you can, Hobartlemagne. Better ask someone else...
