On the Subject of the Grocery Store

I hate going to the grocery store, it is so boring!

You are at the grocery store and only have a certain budget to buy items so you can’t buy too many. You also have to use all of the budget that you can or you will be inefficent.

The screen displays a product. Either add it to your cart or pay and leave. If you add it to the cart, the item’s price is added to the total. If your total exceeds the budget, or you pay and leave when you could have added the current item to the cart without going over budget, you will incur a strike and have to start over (the total is reset to $0.00).

The budget starts at $100, but might change depending on the following conditions (add or subtract the listed amount from the budget for all that apply):

  • + $32.00: The serial number contains G, S or D.
  • + $30.00: There is a serial port somewhere on the bomb.
  • − $15.00: There is a parallel port somewhere on the bomb.
  • − $22.00: There is more than one battery on the bomb.
