    Rice game

    Post by Pinthin on Thu Jul 17, 2008 8:52 pm

    I know this isn't apart of our website, and some of you already know about it..But I think its a great idea and its kinda addictive (at least to me) and your doing some good. Not to mention we could could put high scores up if people wanted too Wink

    The game^^

    It explains on the website how this all works.

    I knew that was it as seen as I saw the title. The most I've ever done was a little over 3000 rice at a time, I think my level was somewhere in the 40s.

    I got 10 questions in a row right and was like "this is boring".

    It isn't like the outcome of this game actually effects how much rice people get anyway.

    According to the FAQ, you'd have to earn 19,200 grains of rice to feed one person for a day.

    +1, you're not actually generating money by playing the game. You're generating money by seeing the banners for the sponsors.

    who cares, it does some good. Doing nothing is worse then doing something, and I'll say the cheesy quote "if we all play our part we can make a difference!!"

    aha! lol

    Well, if you are playing it thinking it will help out in poor countries, you need to actually click the ad links for them to make any money.

    You just have to view the page. Refreshing the page over and over would do more good than actually playing the game.

    We always played this game for fun in our English class when we got done with our work. Our teacher thought it was fake until we saw it on TV and they were dropping off all of the rice. Pretty cool. Smile

    well every time you answer a question, a new ad shows up at the bottom of the screen so you would be raising the same ammount of money either way.
