On a more logistical topic before the actual update:
All the new players have been added. Kieros, I added you to the queue as usual, but if you haven't changed your mind about playing by the time it gets around to your turn you are free to decline to play. There just isn't really a provision for it! XD
David is correct about the second sphere being used for a 4, not a 0. Of course, if the second sphere after a 4 is a 0, then that's effectively a perfect selection. Incidentally, you may wish to ensure that you all give a second sphere when you pick, else I'll probably randomise the second pick to keep the game running quickly.
Also note that MathGirl requested to replace a specific NPC, so just for this game she's got a specific place outside of the regular rotation. She'll be in her proper position for Game II, just to alleviate any confusion.
Knaelidos, you've got a reasonable target. A victory would of course be excellent, but bad targets are never fun to resolve so avoid the 3 if you can! But to get money in the blue sector, it's time to open your sphere.
*Knaelidos opens the fourth sphere...*
*audience cheers as the set fades into a deep blue colour*
That's what we want! The 4's a guaranteed win, bringing blue up to $600!
However, the unbeatable target cannot be taken to the next round, and must be nerfed. That is to say, Knaelidos may have been foreshadowing that he would need the second pick as he was indeed the first to find a 4! So let's open up another sphere to find out what our new target is going to be...
*Knaelidos unlocks the second sphere...*
*...and opens it*
*more applause from the audience*
And that's what we're after! The 4 was very important there, allowing us to win whilst still keeping a low target! Where were the other spheres, though?
*Knaelidos opens the remaining spheres*
So all the low numbers and our wild 4 in the middle, with the higher numbers of 2 and 3 on the sides. Not that it matters in the slightest, so let's see the monitor!
*monitor lights up to more applause*
Well then, Holly, you've made progress in the blue sector but kept your target at a 1. Where shall we be headed with it next?
