QUICK NOTE:


Well, I had something wrong. Anw, the lists are sent out already.

Basically, I thought the flow goes like
Round 1 ends
then I post a psych question
then the Boss answers
then I confirm

However, it's actually that during current round, I should already be posting a psych question for next round.

So...

The hiring of Journalist would now be during the round.

Further explanation later.


And, hopefully exciting for your part, one of the Players is inactive. Bad news, the Hacker is now fired.
Good news (for Employees) I'm thinking of giving the Hacker Professional again to one of you.

Update later.


Enjoy.

Thank goodness I'm not gone already on my first WTB game. I guess I will try to make a majority with The-Spider just to take another one down. Going for Koin too.

Safety for spid.

Maybe we should all vote according to I-Point lists this round so we can gain a few more each. I need braingle01(+2) and spider(+1) to vote for me, but not werdna.

How come forrest is clear because we had mandatories? Just to make it clear...
I've forgotten the voters I need already I will post later. What does that memo mean??

I didn't look back, but I don't think the votes were tallied up last round; did we have enough votes for Forrest to clear him? We'd need 50% not counting 2 votes (Boss/Rat)... Not sure we had that.

It's a small game, so the Boss probably didn't have any optional firings. If s/he did, perhaps s/he didn't use the option so that we'd still suspect Forrest?

If no one needs my vote to get points, I'll vote for myself (+2). Otherwise, Werdna's vote will get me +1 point; Gumpy, please don't vote for me (-1).

Locking a vote for Elios as a safety. That feels awkward, but hey! It proves Estam's methods are completely random!

Edit to add: Oh, on the memo & Psych:

"Ubinam non abscondo vos non invenient." - Appears to be Latin, but I can't translate it. (Took French in HS. LOL) And the teamwork comment looks like a Miriam-Webster definition; nothing to be gleaned there. Nice move, Boss.

According to google translate, it means "I do not hide where you will not find it." It is Latin. I think the boss probably does know Latin, at least better than google translate.

We had 5 out of 8 stated votes for Gumpy, he's cleared.

Izzie (+2)
myself (+1)
koin (-1)

I actually thought this memo sounded like Izzie, as the boss answered the definition of teamwork from a dictionary, and Izzie did the exact same thing in her last game as boss. I don't really understand the Journalist thing and can't quite understand the importance of it, so right now I don't really care about my Influence Points. Should I?

Vote locked in for Izzie. I think if Gumpy stays out of the majority and we actually attempt one, we'd have a better change of getting the boss than if we focused on Influence Points.

I still don't why you guys are so focused on me. And Elios, I don't plan on voting for you You are the last person I would see as the boss... I still don't know who I am going to vote for... But I sure am not going to tell y'all, because you guys suspect to much out of nothing and want me out if everything.

So this is the conflict of this game. Find the boss or get the points...

GA, can I get the link to the game you are referring to? For now I'm gonna vote werdna so she can get points.

You were in the game, koin.

EDIT: Also, that Latin is shocking. I have taken Latin for 4 years, and I'm taking it again this year. The Latin sounds like it was put through Google Translate, or the boss just sucks at Latin.

Sorry if what i said before was confusing...it probly was haha...what i meant was with two mandis, thats two non-votes. So the total votes needed for a majority were much fewer, and I think forrest is cleared, but someone like Harry is better at WTB math than I am (nt sure why i suck so bad at it haha)

Let the games, begin!

Greetings!

As public announcement, a new Professional Hacker has been given license. This means that after this round, while the Boss is sending out the memo and answering the question, you may begin the request to hire the Hacker.

Now as round reminder, hiring a Journalist should be done during the active round (it was my bad that I thought there is time allotted for me to send a psych after the round).

Simply put it with emphasis, hiring a Journalist can be done RIGHT NOW! Hence, be the first to send me a valid request for it to considered for the next round. The round 1 rules post has been revised regarding Hiring a Journalist.



Thanks again to all of you for trying this out. Have a good day.


[EDIT: Improved some things]
[EDIT 2: Second sentence formatting and edit]

My aim in gathering the points is to help Estam test run his game plan. No, our voting for ourselves or just completely randomly doesn't win a game of WTB as efficiently, but if we're playing along with the restructured game, points are key. If we don't have points to use, we can't try out the Journalist/Hacker addition, and this beta run isn't as helpful.

Why don't you see me as boss? Are you my stalker? And also, if you don't share who you voted for, if you're fired, we'll learn nothing. This is a cooperative game. (I also don't see where hiding who you voted for does anything for you...)

My vote stayed the same; thank you Werdna for your vote, too! Now that there's a new Hacker, perhaps we can purchase his/her skills.

I hope we can get a clear or two from the voting and firings. I'll wait to see another memo, I feel like it could give me a better idea of who could be writing them.
