BOUNCED Expenses

So, how much does BOUNCED cost?

The following figures are current as of the beginning of 2007.

Server costs (including bandwidth) for BOUNCED run approximately $20 per month. All other expenses are time or labor which vary greatly and are currently donated for free.

Anywhere from 10 to 50 games are running at any given time. Most games have 7 players, so this means that one player-game-month (that is one player playing one game that lasts one month) costs somewhere between 5 to 25 cents. A typical game lasts between 3 and 6 months. Therefore, a player-game costs somewhere between 6 cents and 1.50 dollars. The variation depends on over how many games the fixed costs of the website are distributed, which has varied greatly over time. Approximately 50-100 users access the site each month.

Except as offset by donations, the website is funded entirely by its author and maintainer, Christian Shelton.
