Bottled water is such a scam...

You embark your journey of being the greatest water tycoon in the world.
You must sell your water bottles next to a water fountain. The fountain is your direct competitor. So you must think of ways to convince people that your water is better. The catch? They all saw you get water from the fountain and put it in the bottles you are selling. Good luck! I suggest you go for the "But the water's in a bottle so it has to be better." approach.

The game is pretty much open ended. By that, what do I mean? I don't know either. But, this will be an enjoyable experience nonetheless. Here's a smiley to get you riled up in the water tycoon fashion Oookay...

I'd tell 'em that they get a bottle for free with the purchase of some water.

you get a free bottle.. and you know what you can do with that bottle after it's empty? you can come back, and we'll fill it with air for just $5.00!

Yes, all that might work. For level 1.
Level 2 requires customers to provide their own bottles.

wait.. how does that work out. we sell bottled water, but the customers have to bring their own bottle.. so they can pay for it?

simply fucking genious.

i mean, we're making a double profit here, since we don't even have to pay for anything. all we have to do is dump the bottle into the fountain, give it to the customer, and get payed.

That's fine, but Level 3 requires you to make the customers fill their own bottles. Level 4 adds the restriction that you can no longer maintain an actual presence at the fountain.

That's still pretty easy compared to level 5, which prohibits you from selling water.

Are we allowed to prevent people from using our competitor? Or would that be bad behavior and get us into an antitrust lawsuit with the US government?

Well technically by level 3, it is assumed that you own your competitor (or at least have total control), since you will be forcing customers to, with the bottles they have provided, fill up water themselves from the fountain. Then proceed to paying you. And by level 4, public utilities realizes your actions and prohibits you from selling their water.

Just because you're playing a game doesn't mean you are exempt from law!

Easy. I say my bottles make the water taste better. So I'm really selling bottles and not water. Wait a second... That's what bottled water has always been about. The convenience of water in a portable bottle. Big grin

Whatever, OOIA. This idea is brilliant. I could sell ice to Eskimos.
