Just an idea with reference the share competition, shouldn't the amount that you get to buy shares with decrease as the game goes on? I mean you could enter on the last day and win, where as everyone else has been slogging it out for 29 days!
Interesting though Amdrac, thanks for the suggestion. Often if you join say on the final day of the comp, you might finish in the top 30, just holding cash of £50k - but to stand a chance of hitting the top place, I really think you need the time to build up a sizeable loot. Would anyone else care to share their thoughts?
