ANY SHOWDOWN TOKEN HOARDERS HERE?

How many tokens do you currently have? Do you save them up or use them as you get them. I feel such pressure when I do one that I'm reluctant to do them too often so I have built up quite a collection. Just wondering if there are any others like me out there.

Hi mskillian, I have built up quite a stockpile myself because it is so nervewracking to use them.....lol

I have 9 tokens. I try not to use them unless the person ahead of me is so far ahead, I have no chance of getting close. I also check their profile. I don't want to challenge someone who has never sweated out a showdown.

I have some 60!
Daren't use 'em. With my slow old dial-up system I always lose even if I get the right answer!
Would happily trade for wagers, which I always use, if Sploofus allowed. I did ask 'em .........

Wow, you guys are too nice! I've used every one I have gotten (except for this week's) and I wish more people below me would use theirs more often and challenge me.

I think they're fun... When I issue a challenge, it's nothing personal; It's not like a duel to the death or something. I look at it as giving the challengee one extra chance to make a bunch of points (since there's no way they can lose any) at my expense.

That's why I wish more people would use theirs... I'd like the chance to make more points, too!

Having said that, it is pretty nerve wracking to know that you can lose a pretty good amount of points if you answer incorrectly or too slowly. But that adrenaline rush is what sploofus is all about, isn't it?

Morrie - I'm right behind you. Should I challenge you?

I'm with eksimba on this one! I didn't get the chance to use any for a while and now I can't get enough of them! Must be the gambling gene

I, myself, can't wait for Monday morning to use mine! It's what sets this site apart from all others...sure it's a bit nervewracking, but isn't that the point!!

Yeah I always use them as I get them. My finacee uses a showdown token to celebrate when he is particularly proud of himself about getting a QOTD right or advancing a level hehe.
I do think that using a showdown token is a very intense experience (hehe) but mine are stalemates most the time, and I can always make up any points I lose by participating in hourly wordrounds and such.

I have 24. I just started using them since I became a Gold member a few weeks ago.

I use them and wagers as I get them.
That explains the 8 million or so I lost in the last couple of weeks.

Yep me too. I have a fair few myself. It is stressful to use them so I just dont.

I have quite a stockpile also! Sometimes I think it's too much pressure to use them. Other times (ok, 1 time ), when I used a token, I was feeling kinda cocky and wagered a boat load...yeah, you guessed it, lost my .....
Kinda took the wind out of my sails!!! Now I am just trying to get my nerve up again!! Lisa

I have never used a token ever!! Firstly, I would'nt want to offend anyone (Yes, I know that is crazy as I enjoy them) and secondly, I completly freeze up and forget to submit my answers as the many people who have challenged me will know. Maybe I will start if the trivia quizzes do not come up again.

I have a boat load of tokens. I always play if I am challenged because I lose nothing but I have done the challenging a couple of times and the stress is just to much for me. I know, I'm a wimp!

I always use my tokens within a week or so of getting them, to be honest I enjoy the trivia side of Sploofus & am not too worried about losing points (as you'll see from my score!) I just like to see how many questions I can get right, if I get them wrong ok I lose points but I also learn something new too......same thing with wagers too!

oh kiddo, they're great. Try using a showdown token. It will tell you how many points you have the chance to lose, and even though it may look like alot, nothing feels better than seeing that message in your command center that says "You are the undisputed champion of this sploofus showdown"

I, too, have more showdown tokens than I know what to do with. However, although I agree that showdowns are quite good at making my knees tremble a bit, I haven't used them in quite some time due to my dial-up connection and computer, neither are worth one crapola. When I had my old newer computer, I used them as soon as I got them. Actually, couldn't wait to! But now, I don't bother, because, even though I'm not here for the competition, I don't like losing and if I know I will, what's the point? If I'm ever lucky enough to get a new computer, I will certainly run out of tokens faster than anyone can blink. (Darn 24 hour wait... lol) But until then, the idea of trading them for wager tokens is reeeeally good. I have no problems wagering, since time doesn't matter. 30 seconds is plenty for that. Enough time to think, yet not enough for someone who wants to cheat to look up the answer on the net. Well, I hope it's not enough time, anyway... TTFN (Ta-Ta For Now)
