Wanted?

Were you acquainted with her before this sale?

Was it expensive?

If she hadn't been selling it, would you have bought is somewhere else?

Buy = pay money for?
Or buy = believe (eg "I really don't buy that excuse")

Did money change hands at all?

If so, was yours bought for the same price as hers? Did you make a profit? A loss?

Some sort of fake money? Money (or its equivalent) within a game of some sort? It's nothing to do with fantasy gaming, is it? (If it is, I will probably have to concede defeat as I know nothing about that sort of thing.)

So, you bought something intangible? With fake money? Presumably within the confines of a game? Was the thing an actual object within the game (e.g. a ring / house / car ), which although not existing outside the confines of the game, is nevertheless a 'thing'? Or a conceptual thing, idea? song?

Well sorry!Sorry for snippyness myself. I was just assuming the "you" was male. Speaking of which, does gender matter?No, but something about that could help lead you to the answer indirectly. Genders are female and unknown but assumed female. No crossdressers or trensgenders relevent.

WILD GUESS!!! Are her and you in a partnership? No. We could be called rivals.at least for the game?No.

Was whatever was bought during some kind of game? Yope with a sort of FA.
Is the game relevant? Yes, with vague values of game.
Is what was bought relevant?Not specifically, but in general idea could help.

Hm... Can't think of the site. Hmmm...
Did you buying hers make yours the cheapest thing? Yes!
If you didn't buy "it" would person 3 have bought it from "her"?In all likelihood.
So, just the site, unless someone wants me to sp01l?

ebay?

your item and her item were the only two for sale.
something ike this: hers had a buy now on it that was lower than your top bid. IF your top bidder had seen hers he could have bought it and removed his bid from your item. since you bought hers, he had no option but to buy yours.

There are several online games such as (I believe) World of Warcraft, which allow trading in items within the game, using online currency internal to the game itself. Is this relevant to this?

can you now post a $poiler?Yes.
Spoiler!
I was on Neopets.com, lovely site, if kidish at times. I was selling a bottled dark faerie(fast selling expensive comodody. I was using the shop wizard (list of all people selling the same item from the cheapest price up) and found someone in my "district" selling it cheaper than I was. I bought hers, causing mine to become the cheapest on that particular list, so somebody else bought mine. Later I sold hers at the sime price as my original and made a tidy profit on it. The currency is neopoints, with no monetary value whatsoever in the real world. I recently have not been playing as much, but will look up my username if someone wants it.
New puzzle coming soon.

Apologies for the double post. My usual trick is to preview a message then move off before posting it.

I read stories in the news about such things actually selling for
real money now. Someone built a space station within one of these games and sold plots on it!!
