1000 DAYS OF STEEM : Day 2 - The Shopping Game - Get Your Shopping Paid For - Rules and Guidelines

11개월 전


If you are missing writing your diary posts each day why not check out The Shopping Game instead.

All you have to do is write a post giving details of your shopping each day and you will be in with a chance of having your shopping paid for!

We are delighted that almost 70 people have already joined The Shopping Game but quite a few of the posts are not following the rules of the game and so don't get a chance to win.

The Shopping Game - The Rules of Engagement

The original post about the game gives the full information...

We have modified (and increased) the prizes since the first post.

Originally we were going to give out just one prize up to a value of $50 each day, but as the average daily shopping value for many people is often $10 or less, we decided to give multiple prizes every day up to a cumulative value of now $60.

So far 27 people have won prize upvotes to cover the cost of their shopping. Out of the almost 70 people playing the game that is a better than one in three chance of winning. Definitely odds worth playing for!

Those players that follow the rules and guidelines for the game have a much, much higher chance of getting a winning upvote so here they are again...

  • The title of the post must include "THE SHOPPING GAME : Date (day/month/year) : any other title you want to add".

  • The post must include #theshoppinggame as one of the first five tags.

  • The post must include the names of the shops or markets where the shopping was done, including their location (town, city, country).

  • Photos of the shops or markets where the shopping was done help a lot.

  • The posts must include details of each item bought including product, brand, size or quantity and price. Photos will be even better.

  • We know smaller shops and markets may not give receipts, so they are not required to enter the game. But if you can get receipts please include them in the post.

  • At the end of the post include a summary showing the total cost of all the shopping in your local currency along with a conversion to STEEM or US dollars.

  • Posts can be in any language.

  • Any photos used must be your own or from copyright free sources.

  • The Shopping Game does not cover online shopping.

There have already been many great entries but two particularly good examples came from @randulakoralage in Sri Lanka and @sapwood in India...

We particularly liked @randulakoralage's use of excerpts from Google Maps to locate the shops.

The Shopping Game runs until July 31st so we hope you will take the opportunity to join in with this until Season 2 of The Diary Game begins on August 1st.

The Lucky 10s commenting game has now been extended to cover comments on Shopping Game posts as well so do get commenting.

Everyone can be a winner on Steem!

Thank you,

The Steemit Team

Un Llamado a la Comunidad...

Buscando cuerdas de guitarra en Venezuela

Rodolfo @rodolfmandolina es un joven músico talentoso en Venezuela que participa regularmente en los concursos semanales de @musicforsteem.

Hace unos meses llevó a su madre a la capital, Caracas, para una operación urgente. Debido a las restricciones de viaje de Covid-19, se quedó varado allí lejos de casa sin su amada guitarra.

Ha pedido prestada una guitarra para participar en los concursos, pero solo tiene 4 cuerdas. Para ayudar a Rodolfo a hacer una música aún mejor, nos gustaría comprarle las cuerdas que faltan. Sin embargo, debido a que su madre se sometió recientemente a una cirugía, no quiere poner en riesgo su salud contagiándose con el Covid-19 si viaja por la ciudad buscando las cuerdas.

¿Hay alguien en Venezuela, particularmente en Caracas, que pueda ayudar a Rodolfo con las cuerdas? Si puedes, ponte en contacto con él para conocer los detalles y nos complacerá darte un voto positivo para cubrir los costos.


The rewards from this post go to support the work of @fundacorazon in Venezuela and @thegreens in Cameroon.

Wow!! @steemitblog the diary games has been an exciting one ,

Steem all the way, so much fun and engagements;

I am loving this ecosystem, you people are genius ,

Thanks to steemitblog


it's nice to see motivated users like you here on Steemit, thanks for being here


Yea @stefano.massari i am indeed motivated , i have had so much knowlegde on many things recently through the engagements and tutorials i receives here,

Indeed , i am so pleased to be a steemian;

Thanks for your comment , it really motivated me too.


so let's go make Steemit great again


Yea sure @stefano.massari we will make it great indeed

You know what - I don't dig the Google maps thing. That gets too close to location and travel tracking for government skunkworks. I would be ok with taking a picture of a shop, and give individual pictures and prices for regional reference. But, I am not comfortable promoting multinational corporations, even if inadvertently.

The only thing I shop for is crypto!

@randulakoralage congratulations to your fellow steemit who has been chosen as the winner, continue to work for those who have not done so, the success you have achieved has encouraged other fellow steemites.


Thank you.. For sure I will do

Appreciated @steemitblog and @steemcurator01 team to take into account this post that has expired and did not receive support in #thediarygame


Thank you for the mention and that means a lot and I would try to present my shopping day post in a much better way in near future.

Thank you again.

Steem on.

Thanks so much steem team for the updates and particularly for clarifying the rules of #theshoppinggame. I am now going to play this game in a much better way with a winning mentality.

Hi @steemitblog team @steemcurator01, I have this pending post, it was published over 6 days ago and it’s going to the payout in few hours


Hope you can check it
Thank you ✌️

My first entry for 1000days on steemit


Last dairy entry of the 100days of steem

I sincerely wish I could join this contest but the stores around don't give receipts for goods bought


Please look my skipped post (over 7 day):


And other.
Thank You!

Most Africans will find it difficult to participate in the challenge because most shops don't issue receipt. Mostly, people buy from local shops, except in some occassions where they purchase electronics, or go for a special shopping away from home, or people living in estates where correct supermarkets are located. The local settings is the main issue. The rules of the game is cool, and I love the fact that receipts should be displayed with the shops location and other stuff. That is the only way entries can be neat, otherwise, some people will buy cola-nut, and write a shopping story. Thanks for the continuous update.

Hello @steemitblog and @steemcurator01. I hope my post about shopping meets all the above rules and can take part in this interesting everyday game.


And perhaps you would look at my post where I specifically bought a laptop, computer mouse and headphones, so that it was convenient to describe my texts for the game diaries season 2 and shopping.


For me, it is a great motivation to evaluate my posts and know that they are being read. Thank you for the great contests and your effort.

Thanks for sharing the rules of theshoppinggame. Many people wanted to know about this.

This is good to clarify since many have been a little confused, thanks for the reminder and also for the support with the purchases. This also serves as entertainment as everything gets ready for the second season of the diarygame ❤️❤️❤️

Thanks so much for taken us through the rules of #theshoppingame. Actually most of us were mess up with the rules. But we would do justice to that and post per the rules. We are play the shopping game, while waiting for the season 2 of the diary game. Some of us are also waiting for the detail of applying for our Country representatives, so when is that update coming on?

I have been running a weekly discussion post series where I am trying to use the post's liquid rewards to incentivise discussion in the comments. I would appreciate it if the Steemit Team included it in one of these posts. I would also like to request that my portion of the upvote for winning this week of Music for Steem go to the discussion post.

Here is a link to this week's discussion. There have been a lot of good comments already

Greetings #TeamSteemit, @steemitblog and @ steemcurator01.

First of all I wanted to thank the support I have received from you, it has been a great help to my family.

I know that for all the success that the #thediarygame and #theshoppinggame initiatives have had, they have had a lot of work. But, if they are so kind and can stop by my blog, several of my posts have not been voted.




Thank you for your support and God Bless you.

Hello good evening excellent initiative like all the others. I wanted to ask about the 5-person teams, will you be making a publication explaining how the publication of these teams should be done? To know which guidelines to follow or which labels to use, thank you!

Am new here. Please follow me and I will follow back Asap
