Accept or Continue
Accept or Continue is compatible with Snow Leopard (10.6) or higher.
Accept or Continue is a game of luck, timing and guts. There are 26 "Cases"; each contains a Prize of money from $0.01 to $100.00. The Player clicks on one of these Cases (which becomes My Case), hoping that it contains the $100.00 Prize. The Player then proceeds to click on (to open) Cases to reveal their hidden Prizes. After each Round of opening Cases the Player is given the opportunity to Accept a Bank Offer and Stop playing, or to Continue playing. If the Player continues to the last Case, the final choice is to accept the Bank Offer, to choose the unknown Prize in My Case, or to choose the unknown Prize in the last remaining Case. Accept or Continue can be played by a group competing for highest score or members of the group pooling an amount that is distributed to highest scorers. Accept or Continue is $20 USD shareware. You can try Accept or Continue in Demo Mode for five launches before registration is necessary.
When a game has ended with Version 1.2.0, any remaining case may be clicked on (opened) to reveal the amount it contained.
After launch, the window expands to fill the display.
When you launch Accept or Continue you see the above display. On the left you see the Prizes (1 to 13 on the left, 14 to 26 on the right). The larger rectangles near the center are the Cases with their Case Number. Above the Prize display is the Bank Offer display. The Player is asked to choose his/her Case by clicking on a Case.
Above you see that the Player clicked on Case 10 for My Case and is now instructed to click on six Cases (the start of Round 1). The number of Cases to open drops with each Round until only one Case is to be opened.
Above you see that the Player clicked on Case 4 which reveals its Prize amount for a short time and then disappears.
Above you see that Case 4 has disappeared and its Prize ($0.06) is dimmed in the Prize display. The Player is now instructed to click on five Cases.
Above you see that Round 1 is finished (the Player clicked on the first six Cases). The Bank Offer is $1.40 if the Player stops playing. To stop playing, the Player clicks on the Accept button. If the Player does not want to Accept the Bank Offer, the Player clicks the Continue button.
Above you see that the Player did not stop playing, clicked on the Continue button and the Bank Offer was withdrawn. The new instructions were to click on five Cases. Round 2 is now finished and the Bank Offer is $3.70.
Above you see that Round 3 is finished. The Bank Offer is now $6.80.
Above you see that Round 4 is finished. The $100 Prize is still available in one of the Cases. The Bank Offer is now $12.00.
Above you see that Round 5 is finished and the Bank Offer is now $20.00. The $100 Prize is still available, perhaps in My Case.
Above you see that Round 6 is finished and the Bank Offer is now $24.00. Only five Cases remain. The risk increases with each Round. The Player can click the Accept button and take the Bank Offer or continue playing.
Above you see that Round 7 is finished and the Bank Offer is now $34.80. Only four Cases remain. It is tempting to stop with the $34.80.
Above you can see that Round 8 is finished and the Bank Offer is now $47.70. Two large Prizes ($100 and $50) remain. My Case could be $4.00. What should the Player do: take the Bank Offer and stop or continue playing?
Above you can see that the Player decided to continued playing and Round 9 is finished. The Bank Offer is now $78.80 and only two Cases remain. The Player can click on the Accept button and get $78.80, click on My Case to get its Prize, or click on the last Case to get its Prize. The Player is very lucky to have two excellent choices.
Above you can see that the Player clicked on the last Case which has the $75 Prize. As a result the Player gets the $75 Prize. The Player is very lucky.
The Player can tell from the Prize display that My Case must have the $100 Prize and clicked on My Case to verify this.
