Note: because of the gross number of players who would be fired for not posting, I'm giving players who have one point and who have been members of Braingle for more than one week a second chance. Non-posting players who do not meet those criteria will be fired.

NEW! Click here to peruse the player reports. I'll update these at the end of every round.

RULES
Here are the rules for this game:
1. All normal rules apply except when an item is purchased and used.
2. Each round will have a Challenge. See the Challenge Listing below the Bazaar for more information.
3. Every constructive single post = 1 point. Double posts are worth zero unless three hours have passed since your last post. Spam/useless posts will not be tolerated, and will result in a warning and forfeiture of all points the first time and a ModKill the second time.
4. In purchasing an item, you MUST use the purchasing form found in the Bazaar section of this post.
5. You do not have to use an item once you have bought it. When you do use it, make it obvious to the dumb moderator.
6. The Boss has a private bazaar full of items. See that list here. He earns Firing Points (FP) by firing inactive players. FP can only be used at the Boss Bazaar. Similarly, the Boss can't use normal points at the Boss Bazaar. Here's the page explaining how the Boss earns FP.
7. The moderator colors are green, purple, and red. Please do not use them. Green is for comments, purple for official text, and red for important things like urgent announcements and warnings.
8. The use of the word "he" in reference to the Boss does not imply gender and is used simply to have a pronoun.
9. Discussion of log-on times is forbidden.
10. Any player who does not post in a round and fails to provide a legitimate excuse for the absence will be fired.
Good luck, and have fun!

Yay! We started - I'd like to apologize for discussing the log in times in Round 0; I didn't realize that was a no-no Glad you made it clear though, as I was going to say something relating to that LOL

I do have a question about the Bazaar - the "color grabber": Am I not allowed to write in a color unless I buy that item or is it specifically for exclusivity?

That's alright...I didn't tell you until now. The color grabber is simply for exclusivity. If someone uses your reserved color, they lose a point! ~Jarmihi

Oh! Thank you I haven't used simple black in a while, so I think I'll stick with it for now LOL
I wanted to Edit to say: I am safety voting for Pratikk

Safety 21K. So if somebody reserves black, everytime someone else uses it that person loses a point? Cool. But until people reserve colors, they are all up for grabs? BTW quick start...the boss may be the last one to enter b/c the psych question was already added... . Will look at the unscramble later. I'll need the letters in 3D so I can play around with them.

It's a random selection, regardless of sign-up time. Just FYI. ~Jarmihi

Jarmiji, just a question about you posting the points in the game. Won't this make if fairly easy to know who has bought what later on? If Yuffie has 20 points, then suddenly has 15, it won't be hard to figure out what she bought.


Good catch! I forgot to add something also costing 5 so that you'd have to guess. +1 to you!

Hmm, wish I could think of something useful to add - I like getting points

Yeah, the game "starts" once all members have signed up - it actually took a full day for Round 1 to start: We can't discuss log in info but going by the time of the posts, Jarmhil wrote that he would purposefully start the game at noon today (he wanted to wait for more people to be on but made a comment that "we've waited long enough") As soon as the game started, Jarmhil sent out the memo and he posted yesterday around 11am so if the boss had answered the memo, he could've started it a day earlier.

My point being, the boss took his time to answer the memo - could've been intentional or maybe it's one of the lesser active members.

I could help if you told me HABS...BTw call me JJ. Please. EDIT: Yuffie, you're right, but the 1st boss was fired in RD 0 and we went back to sign up stage. The psych q was alresdy out

That doesn't affect the randomness of the boss. Source: 18 games of experience.

I also sent in an answer. Do we want a first round majority? The memo kinda sounds like either kajish or fame. Switching to kajish for a majority option.

Whew! I was afraid the game started a long time ago and I'd missed the first round. I put in an immediate Safety Vote for TheDoctor24; it's completely random. I'd be in for joining a majority (there are usually a few mandies in Round 1 to cover Lemmings) but I'd only join if there are enough votes for a true majority.

Yeah, never heard of it either... do the numbers inside of the : indicate a price? If so, the next number is the quantity of how many you can buy, or everyone total? I'm confused. BTW, HABS, what does your signature represent?

Ah, yes. Do you see the key at the top of the menu? It looks like this:

Index | Name | Price | Remaining Stock | Effect

The index is the number of the item...it is only for organization. After the first vertical bar (jargon: pipe) is the name of the item, then the price, then how many are left, then the effect.

So, "11 | Super Cheat | 7 | 3 | Lets you cheat" means that it's the eleventh item, named "Super Cheat," it costs 7 points, there are three of them on the shelf, and it lets you cheat.


By the way, posts asking about the rules of the game don't earn points.

Sorry JJ, it is something only other Canadians will get. IT is about Buckley's Mixture Truth in advertising taken to the highest level.. It is a cough suppressant/syrup and as they openly admit in their commercials "It tastes AWFUL, and it works" The stuff tastes like a combination of Vick's Vapor Rub, and Turpentine. IT burns like 100 Proof going down. But it works great . . . I've had a painful hacking dry cough for going over a week now. Finally broke down and bought a bottle the day before yesterday. Last night was the first night in over a week I haven't woken R up with my coughing. I am convinced the reason it does work is the taste. Your body is like "WTH is that crap? Please don't give me any more, I'll do whatever you want, just don't make me drink any more of that vile tasting swill"

Ohhh. OK. Thanks J. Did NOT know that No wonder.
Hahaha HABS never heard of it but that sounds A LOT like kids medicine... I swear, medicine makers DO NOT KNOW what fruit tastes like. We got 'Strawberry' flavored, and it tastes like...well, crap as you put it, and if you looks at the ingredients, it just makes you wanna puke. Like Ibuprofen. *gags* Wait...is this spam?

No. Take a deep breath. I'm very forgiving about the rules, usually, until they're abused. You're absolutely fine. Spam is "you know what, you should all buy Coca-Cola, here's a link to their website" for no reason other than to advertise.

Just another question: (sorry!) We PM you to get it and PM you to use it? You said double post is nothing, so I guess that my question doesn't count... *head hurts*

Nonono, double posting is discouraged because it is needless clutter: there is such a thing as an Edit button. Anyway, you can either post the purchase here in the forum or send it to me via PM. If you want to make it private, then say so, add the 10% fee, and it will be shown in your inventory as "Item." PMing me does not cost points. If you want to use the item at purchase, say so under "Use Immediately?" or if you want to use it later, just say so in the thread or in a PM. It doesn't matter how you send it to me.

Gods, that sounds complicated. If you need me to re-clarify, kindly send me a PM and we can discuss all the little nuances of the game there.

JJ, kid's medicine tastes 1000000X better than this stuff does. It seriously tastes like a mixture of Vick's Vaporub, pine needles (it ort of smells like pine (sort of)) and turpentine. drinking Tabasco sauce would burn less going down. They don't try to make it taste good. IT is horrid but It really does work. It works well enough that I have a lot of Canadian friends living in the US who buy it by the case to take back with them when they come home for a visit.

Anyway, not a clue who the memo sounds like. Think we may have to wait until Round 2 to see if the next memo'/Psych question tell us anything more. For now will stick with my safety vote.

We need a round 1 majority because that's the time we're most likely going to run into mandatory fires, and therefore they give us some cover/protection. I'm joining the Kajish majority. R1 is the best time to get an easy clear.

Not joining in on majority, although it appears there will be mandies (who will remain nameless (forbidden by mod)).
Anyone know how you eat something, go to bed, then 12 hours later throw it up? I don't know, but my brother (who retired from Braingle) managed to do it. Been up since. And after going to bed @12 and tomorrow being New Years Eve Day, this was NOT the best thing for me. Sorry, had to rant.

I see your point HP, but since you can't be fired if you vote for the boss, then any firing as long as it was not a mandatory firing tells us something (assuming we believe the vote was as stated).
JJ - if you went to bed at 12, and your post was at 7:15 that means you had I am guessing at least 6 hrs sleep (I am assuming you were up an hour before coming online). That is 2 more hours than I ever get. I only ever sleep 4-4.5 hrs in a night. Sleep is over rated.

End of Round 1. (Posts after noon do not count for points as the round ended at noon. You are still permitted to talk.)

You may find the updated player reports here.

The solution to the riddle is:

CONCENTRATION
DIPLOMACY
SLEIGHT
DECIPHER

Key: All of the above are names (or identifying parts of names) of skills in Dungeons and Dragons 3.5e.

One person came really, really close and named a different RPG. No one got it, though, so the Keyword Challenge has been missed.

According to the above list 4/8 votes are for kajish, which is 50%, which is all we need. Of course there is a good chance either the boss the rat or both are in that group so we can only count on 2 of those votes holding any weight. We will have enough mandatory firings to cover us, but this round will accomplish little else.

Oops, I forgot to include kajish's vote. That would make it 4/9 votes. Not a majority.

I should also be buying an employee insurance, but that would use up all my points. HABS, just a suggestion, you should probably buy one too.

Yep, looks like there were 6 mandatories/modfires. Good news is, now only the stoves are left.

I've got your transaction, JJPutz. It will go in as soon as the next round begins.

Wait...so if I get fired then my points WON'T be transferred? I'm sorry for pestering you with questions. Oh what am I saying? 6 mandies? Never mind

That is correct. If you purchase something after a round ends, and then you get fired, that transaction doesn't happen.

You actually have fewer points than you might think you should. I didn't score some of them because they didn't add to a constructive discussion. Count your posts.

Like the ones about kids meds?

Most of those were actually constructive to discussion. All the ones about the rules didn't count for points, nor did anything after the round ended. Should be approximately 8 posts. Sometimes I can be more critically judicious than other times.

Er, JJPutz, did you mean to give your Employment Insurance to HABS2933? Because that's how you filled out the form.

If you intend for the item to be added to HABS2933's Inventory, then you filled the form correctly.
If you intend for the item to be added to your Inventory, then you should have left that blank. If you are fired, then I will ask who you wish to name as beneficiaries.

I want my points to go to HABS after I get fired... *head hurts* Can I change who I want it to go to after the transaction is made, or do I have to buy a new one?

Kay, items like the Employment Insurance usually have the purchaser as the target. YOU are being insured, and the item goes in YOUR inventory, and it is YOUR points/items that are given to other people.

You don't choose who the points/items go to until you are fired. Then I will send you a private message asking who you want to give things to. You may choose more than one person and divide your points/items among them as you choose.

If you target someone else with Employment Insurance, that means that THEY are insured, the item goes in THEIR inventory, and it is THEIR points that are given to other people when THEY are fired.

I should note that I typically delay the start of a round by a varying amount of time...it could be five minutes after the Boss submits the memo, it could be 20 hours later. This is to protect the Boss' identity.

Think it is Jarmihi as he said he was holding the memo.

Q: What is the primary goal? A: To WIN the game.

I'm here! I'm getting it started right now. I'm going to visit my friend in Cleveland tonight, so I thought it would be wise to start the round so that it ends when I'm conscious. ;) That way I can process point transactions before the round ends.

The timing couldn't be any better. The Attendance Challenge doesn't require me to actually be here for it!

Thank you for your patience, though, and I'll have it started shortly.
