I'll put my vote on Elios for now.

A reminder on genders from profiles:
Elios - Female
Gizzer - Not specified
GreenApples27 - Male
JamFish - Not specified
RGW4 - Male
Rhythmic - Male

EDIT: Fixed JamFish - I thought it (the gender icon) was blue.

That feels too obvious.. especially when both cccgirl and kitty-cat were going to vote for Elios as stated last round. I'll put my vote on Elios for now but I'm more than willing to change.. seems too fishy.

Voting list:
JamFish : Gizzer
Elios : Gizzer
Gizzer : Elios
GreenApples27 : Elios
Rhythmic : Elios
RGW4 : JamFish

Cleared List:
Rhythmic
JamFish
RGW4


P.S I never noticed, but happy birthday jubu

It's one reason why it's not a good reason to discuss who you are voting for. But then again, it could be the boss trying to mess with those who were discussing it anyway.

By the way, Gizzer is a female.

I have to leave for work now too... not 100% sure of Elios, though I most likely will join it.

I noticed in the forums yesterday there is a topic that talks about the last movie you have seen... and I noticed JamFish had commented about one he had seen. Now it is about a month old, but if he doesn't watch movies - that may have been the last one he saw and if he stated that as the last movie... it may be a dead give away. Just thinking out loud right now. Jamfish, you were only cleared by a single vote... so there is always room that the person who stated a vote for you failed to lock it in.

I can certainly understand the reasoning behind voting for me. If I didn't claim literature/English/Creative Writing as my favorite subject, I may have said Math (as in Algebra). And as I mentioned, I've seen some pretty weird movies.

I missed the convo @ the cons, but quickly: it was Anime Weekend Atlanta, and it followed the pattern described by Jam. There was a general anime screening room, plus AMV/VATs and some specialty shows of really bad anime, etc. As far as I know, there were no full-length movies shown, and very little live action (though there may have been some Power Rangers eps being shown because Johnny Young Bosh was there ).

[Briefly on the topic of furries, a huge group of @ 50 from Furry Weekend Atlanta came to "crash" Momo-Con last year. As a quasi-furry myself (I don't have a fursona), I really enjoyed seeing all of them; such a wide variety of animals! They're always soo friendly and lovable. :3 ]

My vote is on Gizzer for now. We've pretty much already cleared the other people I suspected, so... yeah.

Edit to add: Happy Belated Birthday, jubu!

Yes I was cleared by one person.. but honestly Python referred to his locked in vote more than once. I actually forgot about that post, tbh. If I were to answer now I'd say Final Fantasy Advent Children, I watch movies too often for a month old post to hold any real value

@Elios, another furry? Sweet I have a fursona but he's old. I need to create a new one, he does't match who I am anymore.

I'm going to switch my vote to Gizzer for now since I'm not sure when I'll be on next and I honestly don't think Elios is the boss. If Gizzer is the only other girl here, then I guess voting for her makes sense.. still feels too obvious because of the girl thing but I'm beyond stuck

According to clears it can only really be Gizzer, Elios or GA. Now the question is can we vote the right one before we're all gone uuuuuuugh.. brain hurts.

p.s my laptop died so I'm on a ridiculously old and slow one for now. I can't get on nearly as often.

I know I'm not the Boss, but if people want to vote for me this round, that's fine.

Rhythmic and RGW4 are fully cleared, as far as I can see. JamFish is cleared if we can trust PYTHON's vote. GA seems to be cleared, based on previous answers to the favourite subject question.

That leaves Elios, so that's where my vote is going.


Edit: Vote confirmed

The boss isn't Gizzer I don't think, so I am voting Elios.

I have some weird vibes going on right now. Just like how I feel about GA, I feel the same about Gizzer, I don't see her as the boss. I have played in quite a few games with her and sometimes I have voted for her just because the bosses acts seemed to lean towards her.

We have a pretty decent boss this time... I see the boss as either Elios, Gizzer or Jamfish... (ok, that only leaves GA who wasn't cleared, so it doesn't take much to come up with this list.)

Gizzer has been very helpful in some rounds... as a matter of fact, the round where Bobbi was fired, she made no hints whatsoever that she could have been cleared by the firing of Bobbi... she was convinced that Bobbi forgot to vote. I believe I recall one game where she did have a single vote on her that was fired... and she won the game because of that (?... my mind is a bit cloudy on that, but it is a hot day). In any case, these two facts makes me put her farther back on the list. That leaves Elios and Jamfish.

The comments in the bosses responses to the questions does not say anything about the bosses gender, but just the fact that the ladies have to go... as Women truly ARE the superior... made me immediately feel a guy is setting up the ladies to go against each other.

Elios could be the boss, but Jamfish earlier this round said again that he was confirmed cleared by Python... but Python only said:

Should I be pleased or not, that people are voting for me?! Sorry that I am not contributing much, but I am trying to follow all that is going on here. Believe me, I am trying to learn this game! I think that I will try a safety vote for Jamfish this round.


I am trying to learn this game... maybe he forgot to change his vote or lock it in.

I am sorry, I am voting for Jamfish... I truly believe he is trying to slip by. If I am fired, yeah, I probably would recommend you go after Elios.

Edit- confirmed vote on Jamfish. If I missed a comment by Python, please point it out... I have to go to a dentist appointment right now though.

I could have sworn there were two posts by Python mentioning his vote but looking now I see there wasn't. Dory moment, derp. However I would like to point out that I did not bring up my 'clear' until other players had brought it up. As I wasn't sure where to keep it.

Fun Fact: I am BI-GENDER it means that I am both female and male mentally. Hence why my profile is set as genderless. I absolutely DETEST feminism as they hate people of my kind. And don't even try to think of connecting this to "kinky boots" ... I don't flounce in skimpy outfits on stage as a drag queen.

I'm keeping my vote on Gizzer for now since I truly don't think Elios is the rat and I'm not even going to bother saying "go ahead, clear me" because that failed in round three and we simply don't have enough people to waste a round. Maybe RGW4 is Gizzer's rat? Who knows. I don't. I'm still confused. Whoever the boss is, they're doing a wonderful job. But Elios doesn't seem to strike me as boss, Gizzer does.

This has been a very hectic day for me workwise... but this game has popped into my mind a few times. I guess because we are down to just a few players.

I actually like the way the voting is right now - 3 for Elios, 2 for Gizzer and 1 for JamFish. But we are running out of options.

I don't see Jamfish as the rat, unless GA has changed his lifestyle... I also don't see anyone else (but maybe me with my jump on Jamfish speech before I left for work) playing like they are the rat... unless no one is picking on the boss (who would then have to be GA). Sorry GA... I still do not feel you are the boss, but I have to lay out the logic I have been thinking about today.

I am not the rat... I actually can see Elios, Gizzer or Jamfish as the boss... with Gizzer real low on my boss radar. Elios seems to be laying low, but not too low... just not many posts - which may be very much her style. If I was, that could make Gizzer or Elios the boss - so you should all stay with your current vote! Now how do you take that one? lol... no, I am about as confused as all of you.

Both Elios and Jamfish have reading as an interest... but of course our boss used a loop hole in the question this round to side step their answer. Warning to mod... be more specific next round.

I suspect our rat may be gone... fired for inactivity and the boss did not know it. I fired my rat one time, I even suspected who it was, but this person showed up as an optional firing, and I fired them. I had been told that when your rat is on the firing list that it says that person is your rat and you don't have to... but maybe they changed part of how the game worked, as nothing like that was displayed.

I can see JamFish as the Rat. Not GA's Rat, though. Elios' Rat. JamFish is constantly talking about being confused. Methinks she doth protest too much.


The Boss is told that the Rat is on the firing list only when the Boss receives a third of the votes. If the Rat doesn't hack the network, he goes on the firing list, but the Boss receives no notice of this.

By the way, if the Boss fires the Rat, the Rat is fired immediately, and the Rat's name drops immediately to the bottom of the list - even before the new round starts. I've seen this happen 3 times in other games.

I can second this. I am pretty sure I was one of the first people to pick up on this a long time ago!

I pretty much cleared myself by the psyche question, since not only do I genuinely love Classics and Latin (plentiful evidence there), I wouldn't pick maths as my favourite subject even if I didn't have a favourite, because maths has always been my least favourite subject. For all my schooling years!

Anyway, the round has little to go. I'll stay on and see if we fire Elios as boss. If Rhythmic, Gizzer and I are all employees, and Elios is the boss, the game should end this round.

EDIT: Okay... game is not over. If I am fired I assure you I voted the way I said I did, and they are therefore cleared.
I predict it is I who will be fired, therefore I'm going to post my last thoughts here...

Okay, I'll post my thoughts in this post here, separate from my last post.

I think Gizzer is Elios' rat. Of course if I am fired, then this detracts from that possibility, but I find it strange that Gizzer mentioned the fact about the rat being fired this round. The only reason for this would be to alert Elios not to fire Gizzer unless jubu42 was online to accept the memo straight away. To be honest, it seems like Gizzer knew that if not enough people joined the Elios vote, then Gizzer would be on the firing list (since the boss, Elios, received over a third of the votes), and Elios might fire Gizzer to potentially clear herself. I also find it strange Gizzer did not push for a majority on Elios as hard as one would do if it were only down to themselves or another player.

So that is theory number one, Elios is boss, Gizzer is rat.

The next is that JamFish is boss, and by default Rhythmic is her rat. I say this because Elios and RGW4 piped up about the use of "ya" in the memos, and JamFish's use of "ya" in his posts. Also, Gizzer brought up that JamFish used ya, so I don't feel Gizzer is her rat. Therefore the only player left is Rhythmic. I see no reason for or against JamFish/Rhythmic being a team, it's plausible. This would have to mean though that PYTHON was actually a mandatory. This theory is more of a stretch, however if I am fired I would urge you to look at the plausibility of this theory. If I am fired and Rhythmic isn't, then this would be a very sensible theory to follow, since Rhythmic has been clear for ages. You'll also be down to 5 players, meaning you have two rounds left, and therefore since Elios would be cleared from my vote, you have two rounds to get definite majorities on both JamFish and Gizzer, and therefore guaranteeing a win!

So that is theory number two, JamFish is boss, Rhythmic is rat.

I thought you couldn't be fired if you vote for the boss. So, it seems that it would more than detract if you are fired.

I want to see how this round turns out.

Yes, I know. If I am fired, that theory is null in void. I am just getting all my thoughts out while I can!

I didn't say that the Rat would be fired this round, GA. I responded to RGW4's post about whether or not the Boss is informed that the Rat is on the list. I probably should have waited until the game was over, but I thought the game was about to end.

I will not speculate further at this time, as it may impact the Boss' decision on who to fire.

I agree with Gizzer, the boss is watching.. we should be careful. Also a note: My laptop died, the one I'm now is terrible so I apologize if I'm not very active.

It's actually a combination of factors this game. I'm usually pretty quiet unless I have a strong opinion. Being at a convention with my friends from Thrs-Sun didn't help my activity. I shouldn't have joined the game, I guess, but I'm usually fired in the first round or two, so I thought I could help start the game and then get kicked out of it.

I don't really have any defense as to not being Boss except that I'm not so clever as s/he is. I take the Psych questions at face value and wouldn't try to twist them quite so much (especially this last one). Twist my answers, sure, but I wouldn't dig for loopholes or ways to avoid the question.

I guess I won't be fired this round (if I'm truly the Candidate), but if I am, my vote was as I stated it. I have the sinking suspicion we're all chasing our tails and the Boss is sitting to the side, giggling gleefully.

Nice info about the rats name dropping down on the list... I do recall seeing names there at times in past games, but didn't put two and two together - thanks. I take it some of you have watched this game and feel it did not happen.

Anyway, whatever happens with the firings, we need to step back and discuss the ramifications before everyone jumps on a band wagon... as Gizzer said, it will come down to the wire. But it has happened before that the boss has been found on the last possible voting round because of the players working together.

Elios, wouldn't that be more pointing at you? If you're normally gone and assumed to be gone.. but you're the boss this time but can't leave? (Just an idea, still don't suspect you though..)

I hope we can pull together

It's too bad that it is taking so long between rounds.

I don't know if I will still be in the game next round or not, but once again I've spent a day off waiting for the round to start, while tomorrow I am working all day and will be unable to participate in the discussion.
