Game Mechanics:

Market Fluctuations: Each day, the price of vaporizers will fluctuate randomly, allowing you to buy low and sell high.

Random Events: As you progress through the game, random events can be triggered that can affect vaporizer prices, your inventory, or your cash.

Buying Vaporizers: Select a vaporizer you wish to buy. Determine the quantity you want. If you have enough cash, the vaporizers will be added to your inventory and the cash will be deducted from your budget.

Selling Vaporizers: Choose a vaporizer from your inventory. Decide on the number of units to sell. If you have the specified quantity in your inventory, they will be sold and cash will be added to your budget.

Navigating Days: At the end of each trading day, you'll move to the next day by triggering the `nextDay` function. This will update prices, trigger potential random events, and save your progress.

Strategies & Tips:

  • Monitor Prices: Prices of vaporizers fluctuate daily. It's crucial to keep an eye on these fluctuations to make profitable trades.
  • Diversify: Don't put all your money into one vaporizer type. Diversifying your inventory can help spread risk.
  • Stay Alert: Random events can drastically affect your strategy. Always be prepared for surprises!
  • Manage Your Inventory: Be mindful of the vaporizers you have in stock and try to sell them when prices are high.
  • Saving & Loading: Your game progress (including current day, cash, and inventory) is saved in local storage, so you can come back and continue your trading journey.
  • Resetting the Game: If things aren't going your way, you can reset the game to start over with a fresh $10,000 and a new 100-day trading window.

Important Notes:

  • If you're ever unsure about a decision, remember to check the message feedback. This will inform you about successful buys, sales, and more.
  • Keep an eye on your cash and make sure you have enough funds to make purchases.
  • Good luck, and may the best vaporizer trader win!
