lol funny/interesting thing: I was drawing that picture and didn’t see that you posted the _same concept_ ’til just now. [it took me longer than 5 minutes to draw it ’cause my 10 yr old nephew was out here telling me how he was going to “flood the market” in animal jam with rare spikes to drive the price of cheap necklaces up by making them scarce.
Freakin’ kid is an economics wizard.
believe me, I barely understand it myself.
There’s trading in this game, things for sale, etc, all with different prices. He’s basically thinking of ways to change “how people perceive” the value of stuff by manipulating the internal economic system of the game itself.
It’s a kids’ game but with all the sophistication of our world pretty much, just in cute cartoon form…. and all the drama and everything. He’s really hooked on it. It’s not as big as minecraft and XBox games, but its its own subculture.
I just nod my head a lot and pretend I understand what he’s talking about most of the time.
