shanghai has a racetrack. new york could wall street. it would be the same coding as shanghai so it would be easy. instead of horses one just
list 10 stocks. instead of "placing a bet" one would make a stock purchase.
the betting line would just be a different stock price for each stock and the admin computer would pick a stock to go up and one to go down and you would make money or lose it.

hum, actually each city have a special thing:
NY have big lucy
London have library
Shanghai have race track
Delhi have post office

Generaly when a game have this kind of feature each place have each site have their own stock at their own court.
I'm sure that pirates will love this new feature!!

Hannah,
I meant to tell you at the time I liked this. :) I think it's another really good idea.

I think that the money you put in shouldn't stay in the stock for more than one day. That way you can kinda sit on your cash till you get a really high increase.

That makes sense. So maybe it automatically reverts back to you after rollover (if you don't choose the stock that drops).

I know that Big Lucy is New York's "special thing", but it's more of a 'spend money' thing than a 'possibly make money' thing. I think the Stock Exchange is a wonderful idea. Well thought, Hannah!

I love this! I like the idea of having the stock market run just like the race track. Beautiful idea!

Since we've brought up Big Lucy....

Might there be a possibility of switching this idea from a stock market thing to more of a 'shady' card game or something? People have mentioned wanting to update the content at Big Lucy's for quite a while now, and I would think something like an underhanded poker game in the back room based on the above workings might be interesting....

As for the other cities, you would have found a Stock Market in London during the 1920's to '40's, but as for the other cities, especially Delhi....I rather think something along a 'secret card game' held somewhere in a back room would be more feasible. But that's just me. :-/
