Welcome to Round 1! Have FUN!

Take all sorrow out of life and you take away all richness, and depth, and tenderness. The capacity of sorrow belongs to our grandeur. It is the furnace that melts hearts together in love. In loving memory of my dear friend Guy - take care Goobs . .

If we are going to form a majority, which I think we should, I would prefer to do it on someone familiar with the Thanksgiving Holiday (i.e. an American) the turkey thing isnt a cold hard lock or anything, but in a blind round one its the only slither of information we have

Im not sure it would point to a non-American..to them its just Thursday but no sense picking it apart too much here. As for male/female, Id lean female, mwuahahaha is either a female or a male 14 or younger..thats just my view on it so dont beat me up about it

I think HABS has mentioned many times that she is a fussy eater, so I can relate the Murderers memo to her. Voting HABS for now, and am not fond of joining any majority for the first few rounds, so that vote is subject to change.

Edit: Vote confirmed.

I too would think American as was poinred out to the rest of the world it is Thursday. While we do have Thanksgiving here in Canda we celebrate it in early (first Monday) October. To the best of my knowledge it is not celebrated anywhere else. Of course ppl do eay Turkey at other times of the year besids Thanksgiving so not sure whst help the memo is. The boss disn't say he didn't lke meat just turkey. I know a few ppl who won't et it. i LOVE turkey, it and chicken are the only meats I eat. Holding off on voting for now. Will post when I figure out who

Being non-American doesn't rule anybody out, because you don't have to be celebrate Thanksgiving to know that turkey is associated with it.

Bobbi seems to be the only one who has something worth pursuing, so I'll join her vote for HABS. Anyone else willing to form a majority on HABS?

I was thinking HABS but she does bring up a good point, though Canadiens would probly at least be somewhat aware that Thursday was Thanksgiving in America. Still think you guys are off on the mwahahaha being male thing, if I were to explain why Im sure Ill offend some people though

Dont know everyone here all that well, so I guess Ill keep my vote at least until tommorow morning see if anything, though unlikely, jumps out.

I welcome being cleared early on. And Chum I know that ppl outside N. america would know about Thanksgibing but you may not be aware of it being last Thursday. i mean I know what Guy Fawkes Day is and whst Bastille Day is but don't ask me when they are. As a Canadian I am fully aware of all the US holidays as we get all the US networks and se all the US ada as wellq. Not to mention most of the stores here were running blsck friday sales here to keep us from driving the 1-"2 hrs most of us (canadians) live fro. A US border. Not voting for myself so will vote spider.

I ate approximately 13 turkey sandwiches since Thursday but you guys are welcome to clear me sure there is a better majority though

also I find "mwuhahah" to be rather...um...trite but I know that statement carries little weight just saying haha

Well I'm not American and I did however know that turkeys are associated with thanksgiving. It seems the only real lead is HABS, so that's where my vote goes.

Anyone have any other leads?

Yes I agree with HABS - I would welcome a majority vote on me. I knew I could count on my "ol" pal -- PYTHON! Thanks bud.

I just think Spider just sounded a little suspicious in that last post. How does everyone else read it?

Posted: 09:06PM Nov 26, 2012

Yous are welcome to clear me then, but Im a good enough player to not throw myself into the spotlight in round one, its a certain death sentence. Other than that, really havent played WTB seriously in a long time, but with there being absolutely no danger I guess I flap my lips a little bit...anyway goodnight I guess check back in the morning

Anyway switching vote to HABS seems like a decent enough shot in Round 1

Its very early but if you're split on me/Habs may I suggest Blondes posts, first welcoming a majority on herself, and then quickly on me (who seems to be the alternative majority to HABS at this point), could be constued as protecting HABS. All probability says its nothing, but something to consider

I'm not protecting anyone. I have played with HABS she just made a comment that I agree with. Sorry if that bothers you.

I've changed my vote to 4wheels to get out of the majority (remember I don't like to be in a majority for the first few rounds). I also believe HABS when she says she loves turkey and chicken, so I think she is being set up by the murderer.

Anyone who has played with bradon knows this is ture, she never joins a majority in the first few rounds. (just trying to save any wasted time speculating on this by those who are not aware of this fact).

I also believe HABS when she says she loves turkey and chicken, so I think she is being set up by the murderer.


Though we are not allowed to use outside knowledge to clear people, we are allowed to use things learned in other games. The fact I am a picky eater (I have often in discussion about food likened myself to "Mikey" (he wont eat it, he hates everything) and said I am even worse than that - I wouldn't have even tried the cereal. I have mentioned on ore than one occasion that iI live on chicken (or turkey) and white rice.

Not sure about anyone this round, but will stick with my vote on Spider.

Posted: 06:33AM Nov 27, 2012

Nothing "bothers" me, I just noted it was what 2-2, round one majorities are usually decided early, once it gets to 4-2 thats a wrap that person is getting clear, so IF HABS was the boss her rat would have to make a move then and there. You didnt outright protect her but you said, yeah Id like to be cleared now (drawing votes to yourself) or 'does anyone find Spider suspicious' trying to ensure its me who gets to 4-2 before HABS.

Anyway just a mild observation nothing Im glued to.


You guys might as well clear me, since there is NO reason to ever not get a clear in Round 1

and how did we reach the conclusion someone is trying to frame HABS The pysch 'prompt' was turkey, the boss doesnt like turkey, this is a frame of HABS?....not buying it

I understand the desire to not get fired early, but once there are mandatories around, the first couple rounds actually turn out to be the safest to join majorities.

And unless we get an overwhelming majority going, this would be a wasted round.

I just like the 'here you guys be my shield attitude'

As if there isnt some majority of any kind, 13 way tie, everyone is fireable besides, in addition to the aformentioned mandatory shield, what is even the point of a round if there is no chance to win it. What is the 24 hour clock winding down to exactly

@The_Spider: I know it has been a few months since I have played but I do not understand your post. HOW is it a 13-way tie?
Back to Top 
The_SpiderAus


Posted: 01:49PM Nov 27, 2012

Its not, its hypothetical...those who abstain from majorities essentially depend on others to protect them, If everyone played selfishly, than everyone is on the chopping block (13 way tie) so those who stay out of majorities, need players to form majorities to keep them safe, I dont uunderstand how anyone takes the "Im gonna stay out of majorities" attitude when playing, (unless there is evdience that they are cleared of course)

What fun is it to watch the clock tick down with ZERO hope of winning, the only motive is selfishness, and even from a selfish standpoint, its still a poor decision game theory wise, as you lose one chance to win without any gain haha

I hear you. I am still new to the game, but in a game where experienced players cleared themselves systematically, the game was over in no time. The boss, Spider, had no chance because of the group effort against him. I will watch the style of you guys and Blondie this game and try and learn from you as well.

That makes a lot more sense from a strategic point of view. We need to vote as a team. Take a chance, Sometimes you can help more on the sidelines than you can in the game. I have been boss a few times, and this is what you are trying to create is fractured voting. That way the firings tell the employees very little.

We need to start to pull together and get a plan of into action.
Will be gone for most of the rest of the day, but hopefully the round will have started when I get home.
