When a player wishes to celebrate for some reason, perhaps after winning a huge jackpot, the player can go to a bar and buy a cigar from a humidor. When the player smokes the cigar, both the player and others standing nearby win money from the "whiffs" of the cigar smoke. The amount won depends on the cigar... higher priced cigars tend to give out larger "whiffs" than less expensive cigars.
How to Play
To purchase a cigar, go to a bar, click on a humidor, and click on the cigar you wish to purchase.
- Although it's not necessary, some people like to run around, spreading the "whiffs."
To take advantage of "whiffs" from someone else's cigar, go to where the cigar is being smoked.
- The following words in public chat are signs there's a "cigar party" going on:
- smoking (e.g. "thanks for smoking")
- It's not necessary to stand right on top of the person smoking. In fact, some players consider that to be rude. Stand nearby the smoker... that's good enough.
- If you win money from "whiffs" you should always thank the smoker and tell him/her how much you have won.
Some other "tips" abount attending a cigar party:
- If you stand too long in one place (approximately 5 minutes), the game will consider you to be "afk" and you will not get any "whiffs." Move around once in awhile.
- If the smoker has used the /ignore command to block a player's chats, that player cannot get cigar "whiffs."
- Sometimes, a player will have a private cigar party where only friends are invited (i.e. there's no announcement in public chat that there will be a party). It's considered very rude to "crash" a private party. If you happen across a private cigar party, you should leave immediately.
