May 28th 2012 – A very sad, teary eyed Katie sat on a couch in a super cool skybox sobbing her heart out to “some guy named Stud”. All Stud wanted to do was make Katie happy and to try to get her to forget her woes. (hmmm maybe he had some other intentions as well :P) He said, “Hey let’s play a game to get your mind off of things.” Hmmm sounded interesting. “It’s a shopping game”, he said with a smile in his voice. Hmmmm sounded even more interesting.
And so Marketplace Madness was born…
The object of the game is to put together a great outfit for the other person with the alloted budget.
The rules are as follows:
- you’re given a budget – today it was L$500
- you cannot buy a full outfit already put together – separates only
- no demos can be used
- and the most important rule of all – you must have fun!!!
For the blog, Stud came up with a terrific idea to donate the money we accumulate from the difference to Charity. We did a bit of research and found http://www.warchild.org.uk/. We visited their land in world http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Music/66/225/37
Here we are pictured below in our Marketplace Madness outfits. Whenever we play this game I realize how hard it truly is to be a man in SL. Shopping is minimal for men, especially on a budget. It’s much easier to find quality women’s clothing at bargain basement prices than it is for men. For this reason I constantly complain while we are shopping, telling him over and over how unfair it really is. 🙂
Stud and I are pictured here in our Marketplace Madness outfits. I must say they turned out really great and without discussing a theme we both looked like we belonged in the picture together. Wouldn’t it have been funny if he had bought me a bikini and I’d purchased a parka for him. A recipe for picture making mahem.
