surel you would only go bankrupt if the player had an infinite amount of cash to play with?

So it does seem to me the "value" of the company is significant. If my company is worth £1m, taking £50000 in fees for a "1 in 200 year" risk of catastrophic loss may not be a bad deal. If it's worth £1B, it's obviously not sensible.
(Or was that your point? I might have misunderstood you...)
Perhaps I would sell this game if I could effectively set a ceiling by what would cause me to go bankrupt, and then pulling out of the game once (and if) I passed a certain worth.

You've only just realised this? ...
Yes I know this isn't what the thread is about really, just a funny title.

If you are selling this game, sooner or later that small probability of bankruptcy will happen - so I don't see how you would make a business run with a long run profit on this; sure you may be able to survive 10 years or whatever, but in the end the bankruptcy case will happen. edit: If you only play the game once, then you will maybe want to take that little risk - although it is still unsafe, and not something I would do.
So, I seem to agree with you...Last edited by nota bene; 20-10-2008 at 22:19.

It's an interesting paradox, how the expectation of the payout is infinite.
Anyway, it doesn't really matter, because the Government would bail you out

It's about risk-return. The odds of going bankrupt are tiny, but play the game enough times and it might happen. I believe a similar thing is happening in the financial markets at the moment. In any event, if I played it just one time, I'd sell it for £20Last edited by Barny; 22-10-2008 at 05:19.
