ANNOUNCEMENT: there are four new items in the bazaar, and the Rat Trap item has been rewritten. They are as follows:
NEW! 4 | Scry | 6 pts | infinite | Gain a hint toward the current Challenge.
NEW! 6 | Time Travel | 6 pts | OUT OF STOCK | Restart a failed challenge.
NEW! 8 | Rat Trap | 12 pts | 1/variety | Select one of the following: double points for 24 game hours, reveal a 2 cuil Boss Clue, or Scry. Then, the Rat has 24 game hours to choose between that or being revealed.
NEW! 9 | Friend or Foe? | 12 pts | 1/round | All posts are worth double points, or negates a Lower Wages.
NEW! 10 | Redistribute Wealth | 33 pts | 1 | Redistribute each player's points (but not items) as you see fit.


Psych question submitted!

O hai! Welcome to Jarmihi's Fabulous Game Parlor! (PARTY! -- open in new tab for ultima-fun!)
In this game, the Active Store bazaar returns!

Players can purchase items which allow you to "break" the game. In order to earn points to purchase the items, you must be an active player. Each post that follows the rules is worth one point. Completing challenges will earn you more points. Some items are easy to get and unlimited in number, while others require you to complete challenges to be able to purchase and are few in number if not singular.

In Round 0, if you post once, you earn a point before the game even begins!

It bothers me when I see tax money wasted on signs telling deer where to cross the road.

Haven't played an active store game in ages, so I am def looking forward to this and sorry for how it turned out, I guess I am better at modding my WWGs. Nice to meet all of those I haven't met yet, and to those who were in my last game, I'm looking forward to playing with y'all.

Welcome, newcomers! Welcome back, veterans!

A note to our fledgling WTB players: Active Store Revamped adds complexity to an already complex game. Do not let this discourage you. Rather, do be sure that you are intimately familiar with all of the original rules of the game before we begin, as I will enforce them!

I am working on making a players' guide, but I fear that I will run out of time to complete it before this game starts. You guys are fast! In the meantime, PLEASE send me a private message (PM) if you have any questions or concerns about the game. I don't give advice or attempt to alter your decisions based on what I see as the best strategy: I simply cater to your wishes and let you live with the consequences, for better or for worse. Please make sure that you know what you're doing with the items and stratagems in the game. If you have a question, it's always better to ask me first before going ahead with something, because I'll just do it.

Finally, please note that my games include MANDATORY PARTICIPATION, which means, "no post, no play." Not only must you vote each round to satisfy the normal rules, you must also post a constructive comment to the game thread each round, or you will be fired! That said, I try to keep my games as entertaining as possible, so it shouldn't be a problem to log in once a day to play!

Oh, one more thing (I know I just said, "finally" earlier): if you have any comments or suggestions about how I can make ASR better, please let me know. I'm a trade show organizer: I can take criticism...though please try to be civil, at least. I run these games because I enjoy creating systems, and especially because I enjoy bringing fun and entertainment to you. If I'm not meeting that goal, please let me know how I can fix whatever's causing that.

Have fun, and enjoy Active Store Revamped 7!

~Jarmihi

Oh, and I really, REALLY want to do it, but if anyone beats me to it, WTB #3000 needs to be titled, "Mystery Science Boss."

Hi there!

Jar, can you link to a previous ASR game? I find it helpful to read prequels of WWG/WTB games.

Also, if I post twice in R0, do I get two points?

sonic102, here is the link to ASR 5. Why not 6? I had some experimental rules in ASR 6 that didn't work out (and we're thankfully not using them in this game!), so ASR 5 is the most relevant alternative. Our game will follow the format in ASR 5.

Also, in Round 0, you are awarded a maximum of one point. When the game officially starts, the normal posting rules apply. (They'll be listed in the game as you can see in the linked version.)

Let's do it, but how many players should there be for us to start the game.
Back to Top

Posted: 03:23PM Jul 27, 2013

20 people to start the game.

Jar, I've just thought up a transfer system, you can experiment with it in this or next edition if you want: If a person has the Credit Card bazaar item, they can transfer points between other Credit Card users.


Hmm...transferring points breaks the concept of needing to participate in the game to earn points to buy items, which is the main concept of ASR. It would have to be much more limited than that, if at all. There is a way, currently, to transfer your points and items, but it's only in the case that you are fired.

Thank you for the idea, though! I appreciate that you took the time to really think about the game.

Just one more person!

Just wondering, jarmihi, will your riddles/clues have any sort of theme? Because I saw in ASR 5 your first clue was video game themed and that's not particularly my forte...

But either way, psyched to start soon!


My riddles and clues don't typically have an overarching theme. I am sort of a geek, though, and some clues may have some geeky references hidden within them.

Hello everyone! . It has been a very long time since I've been in an Active Store Game, so I hope you don't mind me joining. Looking forward to it.

Be sure to follow you dreams; otherwise you'll end up working for someone who had the guts to follow his.
