The recent ‘How Much Does Your Shopping Cost?’ Challenge got some excellent responses.
It really was fascinating reading about the different costs, and brands, and types of shopping around the world.
And it gave us an idea for another game...
The Shopping Game - How To Enter
This game is quite simple.
Every time you go shopping take some photos, write down the prices, keep the receipts if you get them - and when you get home make a post about your daily shopping.
Include as much detail as you can…
the shops you shopped at - names, locations and photos if possible
what you bought - products, brands, sizes, quantities, prices and photos if possible
If you want to include any extra comments about why you chose to go to particular shops or buy particular products or brands that would be even better.
Then at the end of the post include a summary of all the items and the total cost.
Please include the costs in your local currency, and converted costs to STEEM or US dollars or both.
Make sure the TOTAL COST in STEEM / US Dollars is clearly shown at the end of the post.
The title of the post should be in the format…
- THE SHOPPING GAME : Date (day/month/year) : and any added title of your choice…
And make the first tag #theshoppinggame
You do not need to put your links in the comments of our posts - we will pick up your posts from the tag.
Make sure you spell the tag #theshoppinggame correctly (two g’s) and include it in the first five tags - ideally as the first tag.
The Shopping Game - Prizes
Every valid post that is correctly presented will receive an upvote from the 3M SP @steemcurator01 account.
And once a day…
We will select one entry to pay the total cost of the shopping bought through an upvote from @steemcurator01.
This will be up to an approximate value of US$50 currently which is the 50% author reward component of a full upvote from @steemcurator01.
The Shopping Game - Rules and Verification
This game is obviously open to abuse.
People could present false posts with false shopping costs etc.
But we’ve got to know you over the past few weeks - and we trust you!
And the through recent challenge we have seen a lot already about the type of shopping people do around the world.
If any posts look suspicious or false we won’t vote on them and they won’t have any chance of winning the daily prize.
The more information you can include in your posts the better it will be.
If you can include pictures of receipts with dates and total costs clearly marked the easier it will be to verify the total shopping costs.
You could even include photos of newspapers showing the day’s next to the shopping for example.
This is an experiment in trust.
You can enter every time you go shopping - but no more than once a day.
You can post in any language.
This only covers ‘real life’ shopping - not online shopping.
You can include any types of shopping - food, hygiene products, tools, presents, clothes - anything you can buy in a shop.
The Shopping Game will run throughout the month of July.
We hope you will enjoy this fun little game.
It will fill the ‘hungry gap’ between the The Diary Game seasons.
If you can tell the world about The Shopping Game through your social media that will be great. ‘Someone’s shopping paid for every day of the month’ is quite a catchy line..
If you tell your friends about the game and get them to sign up on Steem so they can join in the game that will be fantastic. And we might even find some extra recruitment rewards for that too.
