I bought my first painting.

So despite playing since around the real-money contest, I have not owned a painting untill now. I am proud, but also anxious that it will bring another league of robbers to my house, a type of robber it might not be ready for. Anyways, just wanted to share with you all.

Which painting? Subtlety might not be my strong point.

Re: I bought my first painting.

Well it had gotten down to around 3.5k so I guess not a very popular one.  The Blue bubble like one.  Very pretty imo.

Re: I bought my first painting.

The reason they got that low is that there were so many at once, that people ran out of money. Blio is a nice one indeed. I'm thinking about buying "Obviously, A Major Malfunction".


It's a trap!

Well that sure didn't take long. Paintings are like death traps. They make you (more) stupider and then you die. (I speak from experience). Sorry about that cheese.

Re: I bought my first painting.

Wait, did cheese just die or something?  Anyways, congrats on your painting!  I actually just bought my first one since the contest as well- Owl, by Jason Rohrer, to go along with all of the Beebe paintings that came along with cash and tools from someone's house smile I was/might have been first for a while, but I just dropped down to 34k for some much needed renovations.  Since I no longer needed to keep my value up to stay on the first page, I figured I'd buy a few more paintings, but alas, all of the good cheap ones seem to have disappeared sad  Well, at least I'm much prouder of my house than I was thinking I would be. big_smile

Re: I bought my first painting.

Yeah I died in a broken house. Was really stupid as well because I had actually thought of bringing the tool that would have saved me but decided against it like a dumbass.
Went on a 2k suicide spree but no luck, taking a break now. Unless someone needs me to push cats in pits or something and want to give me half their money in the process wink

Re: I bought my first painting.

If you just want to spend ~15 minutes each day playing CD, I'll give you a tip- Curt Timothy Woodward and Michael Lance Gillard are two of the houses that I was able to figure out the solutions for by repeat suicide scouting.  Each day, just map a different part of their house as you figure out how to get further and further in, and when you decide to start playing again, you'll have a nice little bonus to start your next house wink Assuming, of course, somebody doesn't read this and beat you to it tongue  Gillard's house in particular was a real joy to slowly piece together the no-tools solution for.

And of course, I wouldn't mind you giving your best shot at my house, the one around $35k with Owl in it wink

EDIT: Gah, apparently the first place house has the Geovisage series.... this is going to be tough, especially since it also has the Dermatoricaphalapetoria series also, which I understand has some people after it as well.

Re: I bought my first painting.

Are there 2 copies of Sky by Jason? I bought it, but then there was another one I could buy in the auction list.

Also, wow, there's almost no paintings left!

There is a one star difference and one is from Jason 'Rhorer' ;-)

Are the Dermatoricaphalapetoria ones the Alex Diamond set? Because if so, those are my personal favorites. I may be trying to grab them soon.

Re: I bought my first painting.

It's actually Dermatillomanian (I was joking that it was so hard to remember/pronounce) (come to think of it, you probably know what they're called already), but yes, those are by Alex Diamond.

I might be racing you for that set of paintings- I think i've said this before, but he also has the Geovisage series, which is my favorite series wink

Re: I bought my first painting.

I refer to the Alex diamond set internally as a mumble starting with a D. tongue
I do know, however, that the set title is a term for an obsessive picking of the skin.

Also, you have until this weekend to try at them before I plan on consolidating the big collections.
