The HoNtraband Game
Two teams, six players each, twelve players total.
Teams will be randomized.
Players pick a hero during registration to represent yourself.
There will be 3 matches. Each match consists of 6 rounds, for a total of 18 rounds.
Teams start with 1000 gold in the bank.
Each round, a player from one team will be designated "smuggler," and a player from the other team will be designated "inspector."
The smuggler can choose to smuggle anywhere from zero to 500 gold, by PMing me. I will then announce that the smuggler has decided on his amount. This gold is NOT coming out of either teams' banks.
The designated inspector will then attempt to guess how much gold the smuggler is trying to steal.
If he believes the smuggler is trying to smuggle, he can call "doubt X" where X is a number between 1 and 500.
If he believes the smuggler is not smuggling, he can call "pass."
Possibilities and outcomes
1. Inspector Doubts, Smuggler smuggles more than zero gold:
If Doubt > Smuggle, Inspector wins the Smuggle.
If Doubt < Smuggle, Smuggler wins the Smuggle and half the Doubt.
2. Inspector Doubts, Smuggler smuggles zero gold:
Smuggler wins half the Doubt, Inspector loses half the Doubt.
3. Inspector Passes:
Smuggler wins the Smuggle.
At the end of 10, 20, and 30 rounds, teams will decide how to use their gold to equip their hero. All item prices will be official HoN item prices. Once teams have decided on their gear, there will be an actual duel between two players. Teams may choose which player/hero to represent them. The hero will have the items that the teams have purchased. Heroes will be level 6 in the first duel, level 12 in the second, and level 18 in the third.If the inspector guesses...
between +10 and -10 of the smuggler's amount, inspector's team gets a bonus of 200 gold.
between +20 and -20 of the smuggler's amount, the inspector's team gets a bonus of 100 gold.
However, if the inspector's guess is less than the smuggler's amount yet within the bullseye range, the smuggler will still win the gold as well as the indemnity, but the inspector will receive the bullseye bonus.
At the end of 3 matches, the team with more duel victories wins.
Registration is closed! Game will begin soon.

I was tempted to ask when the contraband will come in one of your previous threads, but I couldn't really be bothered. At least I see someone reading Liar Game! Soon you'll run out of games to webify.
Edit: And Honi-ify I see now, after reading the whole post. The whole dueling-thing doesn't seem as fun as the two previous games, but I think I'll follow this one for a bit anyways!
Can I sign up for this yet? I'm in.
Even if I can't sign up, I'm still in.

[1:48:38 PM] TJ \ Sai: yeah that doesnt surprise me
[1:48:38 PM] Bdiz: wanna play lol and mb kiss a little? x)
I can't find any situation where the inspector shouldn't say 500 gold is being smuggled. Am I missing something?
Edit: Whoopsie, didn't read carefully enough. I'll just do this then. SpasticMouse is getting his game ideas from a manga which is really thought out, so he will most likely revise it soon, it's probably just something he missed
I'm saying the inspector should always guess 500g; there's no downside to it.
If the smuggler does not smuggle any gold, the inspector loses half of what he says, and the smuggler gains that amount.
Kinda left that part out
Still working on rules though
I agree with k1; the inspector can always guess 500g and take it all.
ooh ooh im in, im in!
unless scout.picked?pick scoutp "mid or feed"elsegame.disconnect!endend
Hmm I think you should add something with the inspector gaining some gold if he correctly guesses that the smuggler didn't smuggle any gold. Without this the smuggler has a no-loss situation when he decides not to smuggle any gold, he can only win or tie.
I'm in but I still think that the Inspector is highly favored. Just guess 500 no matter what. You either have 0 gold, or gain all the gold that the person smuggled. If you have 0 gold they also have 0 gold for smuggling nothing.
Maybe add some starting gold for the teams (if you weren't already planning to)?
not in. seems to flawed for me to jump into the initial game to me
No more HoNWolf?
this game doesn't seem very good tbh
I have returned
