Who's first game is this?
Back to Top 
entrails


Posted: 09:49AM Jan 21, 2013

Looking at the game scores overview for each user, these are the people who have never played before:

awaiba
bababawhomp
entrails (me)
GOJimmy
Melody_Pond

Of course, the boss could have been lying about it being his/her first game, so we can't be sure. Also, looking at the writing style (no capitals, 'internet slang', etc.), it looks like the style of the memo/psych answer most matches bababawhomp's (looking at the round 0 thread). Then again, it also seems possible that the boss would disguise his/her writing style as well.

Also, upon Googling the memo, I find it's from a song by Green Day, so obviously the boss would have to be familiar with their music. I can't find anything that points to Green Day on any of the users' profiles, so that clue will have to wait, I guess.

I will place a vote for bababawhomp just so that I don't get fired in case I forget to come back before the end of the round. I will probably come back though, and change my vote if any useful discussion has happened.

I had to google the song too. I think it's "Eye of the tiger" by Survivor.

Also, looking at the writing style (no capitals, 'internet slang', etc.), it looks like the style of the memo/psych answer most matches bababawhomp's (looking at the round 0 thread).

Definitely. Voting bababawhomp.

I have more things to say, but first off, I'm not the Boss, the thing is, if I were put in lyrics.... why not just google them and paste them in?... there is no need for the spelling mistakes.

Wait..... I thoght the Boss answer the question truthfully. Also, Im not gong to tell you to not vote fr me for 2 reasons.

1. You wont beleve me.
2. Cuz (Correct me if I'm wrong), Boss answers the question truthfully, then with 5 ppl on the list of who culd posibly be the Boss, as loong as the employes all consistently vote for the same someone on the list it will be gamover in 5 rounds and the employees should win. Right?
-----------
Other things, I may not have vry good speling, but my punctution and need for capitalization are impeccable. So entrails, your thing about capitalization is wrong. Also, entrails, you don't have to like a song to look it up on google.
Also, you can't say it's me because of the writing style, you don't know Awaiba's and GoJimmy's.
I personally would vote for entrails, for not noticing my ability to capitalize, or GoJimmy, because of Jim Peterik and the capitalization of the word UP.
However, Melody-Pond is another possibility, Melody as in a song. Also, the it's my first game thing, is a technicality that she can use.

Okay. Melody Pond is a character from Dr. Who. It is also not her first game, as they have been on the site before with a different user name.

The boss made a major mistake revealing that this is their first game, because if they hadn't, we could suggest the their spelling was on purpose. Eye of the Tiger is definitely NOT by Green Day, and that kind of makes me sad that someone thought so.

Going back to the first round you see other people's writing styles. So unless the boss was faking (which, being a rookie, probably isn't faking horrible grammar), I think it's pretty clear that it's bababawhomp.

Also, awaiba and GOJimmy haven't been on since yesterday.

EDIT: We can't rule out Melody yet, because she could say that this is her first game...with her new account.

The Boss is trying to frame me and such, but that's okay. vote for me. Also, I would suggest, after finding out that I'm not the boss, to go ahead and vote for whoever is next on the list of people who haven't played before and who hasn't been online, so Melody-Pond and entrails. Also, glowingredbob, just because a name is from Dr. Who doesn't mean you can't interpret it different ways. Also, writing this takes me little effort, while everything before has been so much harder. If you can't figure out why, it's because I don't own a cellphone or have a Facebook and rarely have non-face to face conversations. Overall, I'm like kitty-cat.

I'm sorry!! I don't really listen to any music that was written after the 1930s - apparently my Googling/reading skills need to be refined.

I think that the fact that bababawhomp was able to make the connection between GoJimmy and Jim Peterik is slightly suspicious. I don't know the names of the members of Survivor, and didn't think to look them up. Also, as glowingredbob said, I don't think it could be GOJimmy because he hasn't been online since yesterday. But it's also possible that he wrote the memo yesterday and the mod didn't approve until today. (that is how it works, right?)

Why is this relevant?


Anyway, I am keeping my vote with bababawhomp for now since we don't seem to have any other certain suspects (except for myself and Melody_Pond).

Yeah, I'm with you entrails. The Jim thing is beyond a stretch and not noticing capitalization is hardly a reason to vote someone.

As for writing style, being a new player and not changing writing style seem to go hand in hand. Ie. a player who is not used to WTB does not know to change how they write.

Keeping my vote on bababa, even if its not her at least we have a clear.

Well, I'll tell you this now, because I'm going to get voted for anyways. I am a writer. I don't really make mistakes when it comes to writing. I don't actually like using internet slang as entrails puts it. The Jim thing was a stretch, but I forgot to check to see if GOJimmy was ever actually online, so that must have been wrong. Also, how did I make that connection? Well, simple... Google. I looked up the lyrics and got either green day or the survivor, since the survivor was the actual writers, i looked at theirs. It was just random stuff I find. Also, it's really not that hard... the internet has too much information. Also, entrails... the memo is basically a clue... why wouldn't you think to look at who the Survivors are? Also, please don't make assumptions like people can't change how they talk... si je dit en francais, don't assume I'm french....

Also, now that you are voting for me (which you probably should since the memo basically spells out (joke) that you should vote for me), can we at the very least, decide on the employees' course of action for the next round? Like I said earlier, I suggest voting for either entrails or Melody-Pond for the next round, depending on the clue and the memo given. Does that sound about right? Also, I would ask to see if you could do one thing for me since I'm new...

This is WTB, you lose nothing by being voted for. I would consider melody next round, it sounds like a good idea. That is, unless she is a mandatory.

Koin_era345: since you all vote for me, won't you all be lemmings then? so you are all on the firing list?
Also, Melody-Pond hasn't been online. So it's actually just me and entrails. So you guys all know who to vote for next round!

Bababa, you do realize that you won't get fired by being voted for, right? Yes, the lemmings will be placed on the firing list. But the Boss can only fire a certain number of them.

Edit: You won't get fired by being voted for unless you're the Boss.

By rigging the voting, do you mean getting people to vote for who you want?

All strategies are allowed in game. You just can't talk to people about this game outside of the game. PMs, chat, etc.

Yes, but people generally like to all vote for one person in the first round. And we won't be lemmings if you're the boss.

Meh, Thekid4, vote for me, just make sure you vote for entrails next round.
And kitty-cat, I was simply wondering if it was possible to get 8 people (who aren't me) to vote for me and the other 5 people to vote for entrails, though of course, you can't tell who the rat is, but overall, I was just wondering if people have ever considered doing that when there are two possible bosses.

Thanks glowingredblob, for pointing out that this is in fact not my first game just a new account. It could be a really simple clue because of the capitalized UP meaning the sky which could mean asteroidbelt....I will join the majority for now but will keep the clue in mind for later rounds. Sorry I couldn't get on till now I had to watch my little sister all day.

Splitting the vote wouldn't help. The Boss has to get the majority of the votes to win, and in the first round of this game, assuming everyone votes, you have to get 8 votes to get a majority. And with the Rat and possibly Boss pretending to vote with it, you need 10 votes for a complete clear, although some say 9. Complicated stuff.

So, yes you can get them to vote that way, but it won't get them fired if they are the boss, or cleared if they aren't.

The memo isn't a clue. It's just what the Boss says to his/her employees. It's from him/her, not me.

Cg

The psych answer could be interpreted as the first game as boss, which would open the possibilities a lot.

Sorry for being late.

@bababa: FYI, I think it usually sounds suspicious when people claim that the memo is not in their style. After all, you're supposed to imitate someone else's to minimise your chances of being suspected. i wuz teh bos in mai furst game if i new hao wtb wurkt back den i wood hav rote laik diz. I'm voting for you to get a majority ...

Hi. Just stopping by to let everyone know I'll be quite busy in the next day so I probably won't be able to come on until the second half of the round or so. Looks like we have a majority, so hopefully either bababa gets cleared or she is the boss.
