Everyone, and I mean absolutely everyone, needs to have a go IMMEDIATELY on Celebdaq. A not-very-clever play on NASDAQ, Celebdaq lets you buy stock in celebrities (the choice is limited and somewhat arbitrary, and rather UK-centric). When someone famous does something interesting, their stock goes up, mainly because people just entering the game tend to buy stock in people they've heard about, and a lesser-fool principle -- people think they'll go up, so they buy them, so they do. You start off with £10,000 of fake money, and the best player wins £100 of real money every week. It's great, and totally addictive. Play now, and buy stock in Beckham.
