    The correct answer was already provided.

    It's a splinter.

    do i get half a point since the splinter is unlikely to be discovered without pain
    thus pain is the 1st occurrence of the answer formula

    If you can solve this one.

    I sat down at a table of five to play. I played all night, but when I was seated, no one played with me. There was no gambling involved but each player received money.

    What was I playing?

    I know it's not right, but I keep thinking: a drum set.

    Very close. Nice job.

    The answer is music. I’m a soloist.

    Ah. Good. I was pretty sure the solo angle was right.

    It is.

    "Money is any good that is widely used and accepted in transactions involving the transfer of goods and services from one person to another."

    It's not the official tender of any government, no - but it is still money. It just has a niche distribution - the game players.
