Celebrity Bucks University

Game Overview : The Basics

Celebrity Bucks is a game of skill where players compete against each other to create the most valuable portfolio of celebrities. The game is a lot like fantasy sports in that celebrity values are based upon what's happening in the real world.

Celebrities increase in value each time they are mentioned in any of the celebrity news websites that Celebrity Bucks monitors 24 hours/day. The more that a celebrity is mentioned in the news, the more that celebrity is worth.

Jennifer LawrenceThe goal is to sell a celebrity at a price higher than what you purchased that celebrity for. Only one (1) player may own a celebrity at a time. For example, only one player in the contest may own Jennifer Lawrence. Another player cannot own Jennifer Lawrence until the current owner sells her back to the Celebrity Bucks Exchange.

A portfolio is the name given to the collection of celebrities that a particular player owns. The value of a player's portfolio is calculated by adding the current value of all celebrities in the portfolio and the cash that the player has in reserves. For example, if a player has 5 celebrities in his/her portfolio, that player's Net Worth is the sum of the values of each celebrity PLUS the amount of cash that player still has.

Portfolio Example
- Celebrity A ($10,000 value)
- Celebrity B ($15,000 value)
----------------------------------------------------------
Total Portfolio Worth: $25,000

If the player has $30,000 in cash that has not been spent, the total Net Worth of that player would be the sum of the portfolio worth ($25,000) PLUS that player's cash ($30,000). That player's Net Worth would be $55,000.

Net Worth Example
- Total Portfolio: $25,000
- Total Cash Available: $30,000
----------------------------------------------------------
Total Net Worth: $55,000

The player with the highest Net Worth at the end of the contest is declared the winner. In our example, the player would be ranked based upon $55,000.
