I think it sounds a little like asteroid or buu but buu probably wouldn't be that obvious so I'll vote asteroid.

I would just like to say that I agree with the Boss's pysch answer. I didn't even know we got enough players, so I'm kind of glad I'm not the boss.

Safety for koin for now.

Safety for koin! Not really sure who it sounds like. It sounds like koin a little bit, because he was boss in my last game, and it sounds cclose. That is where my vote goes. Someone else can make a voting table this, time, because I don't feel like doing it.

Going for the koin majority. Au contraire, koin, it doesn't sound like buu to me. buu doesn't capitalise 'i's and I don't think he'd give such a short answer, either. Also, in one game, he was the boss and very much sounded like himself ...

I like using the first round for clearing, so I'll join the majority on koin_era.

I've worked both low-paying jobs that I greatly enjoyed, and high-paying jobs that I couldn't stand. The romantic in me would love to live a simplistic life so that I could afford to work wherever I was happiest, but things are rarely that straightforward.

Yeah, I'll go with majority on Koin_Era . I can't really make it fit anyone either and I've learned the hard way that I agree with the boss' answer

Edit: My vote has been saved.

Seems a majority has formed while Im gone, what to make of it?

I am not the boss. I am not afraid to make long memos, and I prefer challenging myself to create a new voice rather than protect my voice by writing as little as possible.

You can clear me if you want, but you risk being fired. Keeping my vote on asteroid.

It's the first round, so we really don't know that much, so I'm going to go with Asteroid.

This is gonna sound rather bossish but one of you can change your vote and we still get the clear. If you would like to not be fired.

And for the record, I would rather do a job I hate and make lots of money. Retire early, live out the rest of my life awesomely.

Yeah, but there's always the boss and rat possibility. I mean, them being in the majority.

I am starting to think that koin might really be the boss. It is just the way he acts. I think I am gonna leave my vote on him for now, and even if he isn't he will be cleared. (I still don't understand the whole clearing thing, but it is still fun to say it that way. )

Safety vote on JQ, because I think it sorta sounds like him.

Exactly. The worst-case scenario is 6 votes out of 13, which isn't a clear.

Wait, no. Because if it is 6/13, then it's still a clear. Because if the boss claimed to vote in the majority, then the boss isn't koin. So it would be 7/13, or a clear. Assuming everyone voted for who they said they would.

Also, only 11 voted. So worst case, it would be 6 or 7 out of 11, which is a clear. Because 2 employees ( unless one was the rat?) didn't vote. Let's just say koin's clear, especially if people who voted for him are fired.

Since the game didn't end, I'm assuming that Koin is cleared but as far as the majority, you can't exclude the non-voters b/c they fit in the majority too (does that make sense? The numbers you pull from for a majority are the players in the game, not the voting players) so a majority in this game is 8 / 15 = then you subtract the Boss and Rat from the equation, so 6 / 13 is the least amount of votes needed. We had 8, so Koin had a majority vote.


kmrutledge wrote:

To win this game, the players need to create a majority vote on the Boss. If we choose correctly, the game will end and the employees will win; if we choose wrong, that player will be cleared, since the game didn't end =P We need cleared players so we have a base of trustworthy players (although there's no way to prove if someone's the Rat or not) that can then look at the memo/psych questions to deduce who the Boss is.

If we never get a majority, we will never win the game. It's true that voting in a wrong-majority makes the players lemmings (i.e. they become fire-able) but the game wouldn't be any fun without any risks; if too many people "play it safe" then we will never gain majority & the Boss will win. I might jump too fast on a majority, but I want answers & clearing a player helps move the game forward.

Which is why it's good to majority-vote in the first round; the Boss will be required to fire the two inactives and in a 15 player game, I doubt s/he will be able to fire a third person.

It sounds good on paper, but I guess it depends to what degree you hate your job b/c trust me, I've been there & there's no way I would've lasted 20+ years to get to retirement without killing myself or my coworkers

Yeah, I would've expected the game to end if koin was the Boss. Unless kal has to come on to do something in order to end the game....?

I suppose it depends on why you hate the job. If it's because it's boring, or dead-end, or a lot of hard work, that's one thing. I'd agree with you. (I'm kind of in that situation where I am no, actually. ). But it's much harder to work in a place where you're not respected, mistreated, or worse - abused. It does a lot of psychological & emotional damage, which can result in depression and physical ailments. ... But enough from cranky old lady. Hopefully none of us will be in that sort of position, and we can work jobs that we both enjoy and can make a living on.

On to happier Either/Or questions! LOL
