Not really a "game", but I will put it here as well (move if inappropriate). I also posted this in EBG and Multiplayer at GG.
Hi all, I really don't know if there will be much interest here or not but I figured I should go ahead and give it a shot.
CBS Marketwatch offers a free fantasy stock market challenge. For those of you who haven't ever taken part in one, you're given a certain amount of fake money to invest however you like and are competing with the other members in the compeition. The challenge follows real market data, and rankings (weekly return, daily return, monthly return, overall etc.) are updated throughout the week.
I know there are some other people here that are interested in investing and the stock market in general. Even if you're not, this is definitely a great way to learn. There is no pressure, your account can sit idle the entire competition if you get too busy to participate.
I went ahead and setup a competition for Gonegold in case there are some who are interested.
