Ahoy mateys and welcome to the Pirate Game!

You, and everyone else who signs up for this game, is a pirate on a ship that found a treasure chest of 100 gold coins.

In accordance with pirate law, here is how you will split the treasure:

1: All pirates will be randomly placed in order of 'seniority'.
2: The most senior pirate becomes the pirate captain and will propose a plan on how to split the gold
3: All pirates will then vote yes or no on whether they find this plan acceptable
4: If the vote passes (and the captain wins ties) then the gold is distributed as the plan dictates
5: If the majority voted no, a mutiny occurs and the pirate captain is killed, with the second most senior pirate becoming the new captain. The new captain now proposes a new plan, starting again from step 2.

This goes on until a plan is voted acceptable.

Collect as much gold as you can through multiple iterations of the game - but if you die in an iteration you will lose 50% of your stored gold

Of course, I will play, and if I get to be captain, you bet I will be doing 9x, 0, 1, 0, ...

Yarrrr.

I refuse to cooperate with the "optimal" setup for this at any point. The fact that this is run over multiple rounds means the dynamics change over time.

E has already said he's doing the standard strategy. If you would get a coin from that strategy and you choose to vote against it, I guarantee I will follow it up with a better deal for you.

What is 2.718 proposing? And what makes it 'standard'?

I think he’s going to use game theory to find an optimal spread of gold

Well, if everyone were perfectly logical (and that fact was common knowledge), then my pick would be 97, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, and 1. But apparently Klick is bribing some no votes...
Klick is definitely unsatisfiable, so I am keeping the 0. I highly doubt that Klick will actually follow through on that promise of a better deal anyway, especially with all my things so high.

I will be a bit more generous than the mathematical answer, and split as follows:
Me: 44
Klick: 0
Invisibility: 13
Gamma: 12
Mallow: 11
Vashta: 10
BuJaber: 10


Obviously, I VOTE: yes.
