As I sit in the recliner that I have called home for the past 5 days, I had just taken my dosage of pain meds (and anyone who has been talking with me the past few days knows that my judgment, spelling, and sometimes even consciousness is severely affected when I take them)......when I had a brilliant idea. How about I go make a bunch of wagers on my unanswered Trivia Questions of the Day? After all, Justin had so graciously given me 5 of them for my birthday!

Well, I'll cut right to the moral of the story. Lots of wrong answers and lost points later, I've learned two things: 1) If you are going to make wagers, don't do it while under the influence of high velocity pain medication; and 2) if you are going to make wagers DO IT while under the influence of high velocity pain medications because when you lose, it somehow seems funny.

I have to take a nap now.

Well, at least you have the drugs as your excuse. Every wager and showdown I've tried to do for the last month has ended in disaster When will I learn?

WHAT...Justin gave you 5 wager tokens for your birthday! Tomorrow's my birthday, and the day after that, and the day after that, too.

Everyone gets an in-game gift on their B-Day. You might remember the Sploofus birth date and zip code survey that popped up when you made it to level 3?

Yep - just got mine too - was a nice surprise after my horrible loss the other day. Though I will use mine more judiciously than Lodi - lol!

I don't recall the survey or getting anything for my last birthday, either.

Yeah, I don't remember getting anything for my birthday, but I don't remember what I did three hours ago usually! I chalk it up to being a mother!

I don't even remember if I HAD a last birthday. There isn't much that I do remember anymore!

I don't remember getting anything for my birthday. There was a day when I got 2 but I thought everyone did and I don't think it was my birthday.

Justin, for next year it's still August 21st, K?

I definitely didn't get five wager tokens. As I'm all out of them, I would've noticed five new ones!

I don't remember getting a survey at level 3 (although that was a while ago and my memory is far from perfect, but -

I definitely DID NOT get anything for my birthday!

I know that for a fact, it was only six weeks ago - so I'm gonna sulk now!

I did not get anything for my birthday - I don't remember the survey and I just celebrated my birthday this summer in July and did not get anything at all....sob sob., LOL
Maybe next year?

Oh and by the way, Lodi I wish you a speedy recovery. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Speaking of birthdays, has anyone seen the new Birthday Box that was mentioned in another post? I haven't. At first I thought maybe nobody was having any birthdays. But with as many members as we have here, surely someone's having a birthday nearly everyday.

With 14,000 members, we should have on average 38 birthdays every single day!

And I would really, REALLY like some extra wager tokens - in fact I'd love to be able to swap out some of my showdown tokens for wager ones ...! I'd be happy to give say 5 showdown tokens for one wager token ...

Justin? Pretty please?!!!

I received 5 wager tokens last week for my B-Day, along with a nice little birthday song,...well, the song was typed, so I had the music piped in.

I now have 14 wager tokens,...15 hopefully tomorrow, and 29 showdown tokens.

My question,...for us non-gamblers,...why can't we just cash them in for points? Say, oh, 20,000 for a showdown and 100,000 for a wager. Maybe that sets the bar a bit high,...but you get the gist. It would help with the clutter with all these tokens lying around that will prolly never be used.

I like showdowns & wagers both. That part of the site is fun for me. (I can't wait until my birthday!) But I understand if it's not everyone's thing. I'm not big on some categories of quiz, which means I leave points on the table there too.

I guess I don't really have a point (I thought I did when I started), but I can empathize with the feeling of blown opportunity at losing wagers, especially a raft of birthday freebies.

Get better, Lodi. You got some reclaimin' to do.

I didn't get nuthin' neither. And I don't remember a survey asking about it (although level 3 was awhile back). Just for the record, my birfday is February 10.

And I love tokens of either kind. It's the only way to REALLY make some progress, even though you lose now and then. All part of the fun.

I didn't get the tokens and song for my birthday, nor do I remember the survey. If I answered a survey, I don't know if I gave my real birthday or a "none of your business" answer. Can you add birthdate into our account settings so we can check it, Justin?

I've been a member for two birthdays and have never received anything.Justin probably knows I never use my wager or showdown tokens anyway.But I do wish there was some way to trade those for points or perhaps other players could buy them from you.Martha

Now THERE is an idea,...a method for people to sell/auction off their showdown/wager tokens. It's obvious some players covet and use them and some just let them pile up. Shouldn't be too hard to find a happy medium somewhere. I'd sell 5 wager tokens to somebody for a million of their points or so. We'd both prolly end up happy we made the deal.

No birthday tokens for me either - and it was a while back, but I don't remember a survey at level 3...

Tim (Vettage) - you're on! If we're ever allowed to swap points for tokens I'll happily give you a million points for 5 wager tokens - as many times as you have sets of 5 wager tokens to exchange!!

What's more, you only joined a few days before me - how come you got those tokens for your birthday and I didn't?!! Definitely no fair!!

What's the criteria, Justin?!!!

I got 5 birthday wager tokens today, but with my string of luck lately, I'm terrified to use them.
