Yay, the game has finally started, looking to be a good one too, everyone with the exception of lillyPad7891 has already been on today. To consolidate information:

Memo:

I am quite sure you were all disappointed that this game did not start on the first attempt, but I am here now and ready to increase the unemployment rate! Mwahahaha!


Psych Question: Ok boss. Is there anywhere in the world you would like to visit/go on holiday. If so where? If not then why not?

I prefer colder temperatures -sweat is so uncivilized- so I might enjoy a visit to the North Pole to see the Aurora Borealis.

------------------------

Not much immediately apparent here, still, the North Pole is an interesting choice. I can see going there once, but, I certainly do not like cold temperatures, I always get cold >_>

Was talking to a guy on the phone (work in a call center) who saw the Northern Lights in the Navy, funny how timing can be.

At any rate, still at work right now, will be checking in later.

This answer makes me wonder where people are from. Would someone complain about it being too hot if they live somewhere warm, so would want to vacation to somewhere cooler? Or perhaps, if they don't like the warmth, they already don't live where it is warm?

Since the round reset, and lilypad has not been on today, doesn't that mean she is cleared of being the boss? No guarantees about not being the rat, though.

Now, I seem to remember from a while ago that it was important in this game to make sure to vote and announce your vote in here clearly. We used to keep a record of how people voted. Is that still how people do it, or is that frowned upon? Thanks!

Yeah, we need to announce votes and keep a record. Employees who vote for the boss can't be fired, so this is how we clear people. Sometimes winning the game hinges on whether someone stated their true vote in an earlier round. This is especially important since we can't talk about who we voted for AFTER the round ends.

I would probably never want to go to the North Pole. I don't like cold weather and definitely don't like when it icy. I would want to go to Seattle Washington and I would try and take my family with me.

I will safety for HABS for now

Kaldridge, why Seattle, WA? Do you like the rain?

Ok, so next question, do people prefer MoO votes, or do you think it is better to form a majority this early? I am willing to be in a majority for the good of the group, but I seem to remember some people don't like being put in a majority the first round.

I don't like temperature extremes either way. I especially don't like it too cold - our winters can get pretty cold we have a couple days each wither that the temps drop to about -20C but then it goes back up to only about -5 or -10 so it is not too bad.
Our summers are gross here in S. Ont. The temp on the thermometer can get up to the mid 30s then with the humidity it can be in the high 30s or low 40s. I hate it when it is like that as I have very thick hair and as a pale skinned red-head the sun and I don't really get along.
Today it was really nice - about 24 degrees I would love it to be like that year round, warm enough to not need a jacket but cool enough you are not drenched in sweat two minutes after stepping outside. IT can be so humid here that the second you leave your house the air is so heavy you can barely breathe.
I would love to go to either New Zealand or Australia

Safety vote for LH

Well...I am Totally cleared. Anyone who has played a game with me in the past where weather was an issue it became a topic of conversation. I like it warm, all the time. I hate the cold.

I am voting j-boy on this one.
The language is telling. Most people make boss memos short, sweet and slightly revealing....but not really.
This boss took the time to come up with a different, less common way of speaking.
Who would do that? Who would come up with those words?

I'll have to take your word for it, LH. I have been on Braingle for a while, but I have not played enough with you all to match speech patterns.

I will say I have lived in the South most of my life, and I am definitely old enough to make my own decisions about where to live, lol. Plus, winter fashions are great, and snow is beautiful, but I think watching spit freeze in midair would get old quickly.

Last game I started at the top, so this time I'll start at the bottom. Random vote for Sly.

I don't like rain but it doesn't rain there as much as what everyone thinks. I have been to Seattle for a leadership week. I arrived Sunday and left Friday and it was at the end of June which is in the middle of their rainy season and it did not rain once when I was there. Plus there was about ten people that lived in Seattle and they said that there rain is actually just a mist. It was really nice everyday and it was warm but not to warm. Another girl and I both even got sunburns one of the days that I was there. But other than the weather I would love to be able to take my family there so I could show them all the neat places that I got to see. When I was there I got to see the Seattle center, the space needle, a yacht ride around the lakes, pikes place market, the first Starbucks, the monorail, the trail under the bridge, and even the college campus.

To clarify, even though this is a WTB game, technically, we're not looking for the "Boss", but we're looking for an infected survivor, and the person who's helping him "eat" us... That's our theme here, yes?

I thought about this too and hence, went to everyone's profile to find out who from where.

Most of the players in this game are either from US or Canada. Jayo is from Ireland, FaithDushku is from Albania, buu is from India, J-Boy is from South Africa, and I am from Singapore. Out of these countries, I believe that India and Singapore are the hottest, hence, my vote is for buu.

Hahahaha. LH if you think it's me then go ahead and clear me but you'll be a lemming. I don't know how hot it gets there Tan but here it often gets into the mid-forties. But it also gets cold here. Sometimes it can go down to -5 (yes I know it's not that cold but it's still quite a big drop from 45). To me the memo sounds like someone who is new to this game so I'd like to vote sly but I don't want to put dcf into a majority.

Safety for now for Tan

Wow J-Boy, I didn't know it got that cold there. I used to work with a guy who moved his family from Pretoria to Northern Ontario (where in the summer, it is quite nice (people pay A LOT of $ to buy cottages up there, but in the winter it DOES get "that cold") and he never mentioned how cold it got there. I think a lot of us have misconceptions about where others live. Most of Canada (at least where people live) is not nearly as cold as people elsewhere in the world believe. 90% of Canadians live in the lower 3rd of the country.

I had forgotten that LH has often commented in convos about weather he distaste for the cold. And I think she, like me, tells the truth about stuff in the round conversations. I will leave my vote where it is even though I don't think she is the guilty party.

I'll throw a safety vote on Limerick for now

I really prefer cold weather to warm, which is lucky as it is always freezing here in Ireland.
I'm a big fan of rain, which zombies don't like so yeah that should clear me right up

I was in Spain a couple of years ago and could barely cope with the weather as it hit 32 Celsius


I agree that Nicats is cleared and LH too, Habs might be worth clearing at some stage

I doubt he means on the same day! llol
Here, as I said it can get as cold as -20 or so (not including the windchill) and go as high as the mid 30s. But as it is humid in the summer you have to account for what we call the "humidex" which is what the temp "feels like" due to the high humidity and with that figured in it goes as high as the high 30s to low 40s.

In Alberta they have a weather phenom on called a "Chinook" which is a warm front that comes in during the winter months and gives them spring or summer wether for a few days. Soetime though it does not last that long and it can in the course of a day go from -20 in the morning to +20 in the afternoon then back down to the negatives by evening.

Why? Because I live somewhere it can get cold? Take a look at a map - London, Ontario is at the same latitude as NoCal.
Go ahead and clear me I have no issues with that at all.

You guys do realise that as a Canadian, the temps I am mentioning are in Celsius, not Fahrenheit right? 35 C is 95 F!

lol - funny boy! I don't care I am voted for, I welcome it. Just think it is an amusing reason. I live in a colder climate - therefore I am the boss.
Like I said, it was 24 degrees here yesterday, which is hardly "cold".

What are we doing this round? Are we all voting individually and basing things off the firings or are we going to come together to or a definite majority? I'm good either way but won't join a majority unless it is enough to clear.

Haha. No definitely not on the same day. Those temps are not including humidity but the forties usually occur slightly north of where I live. It's heading towards winter now over here. Today it's 26. Uh it looks like a MoO situation and I'm ok with that for this round. I want to see the firings and next round's memo.

For reference, I'm not actually from Albania... When I created my username (like in 2008 or 2009), I used that flag because it went with my screenname (Faith Dushku - Eliza Dushku is Albanian)...

I'm actually in the States now, but my bio says I'm from everywhere, cuz I grew up a military brat, so I've lived in a bunch of different places... Extreme hots like Georgia, and extreme colds like South Dakota... Some places overseas didn't even have seasons, really...

So just wanted to verify that, so ya'll don't think I'm actually from Albania (I guess I can/should change that now)...

Anyhoo... Is our general consensus that we don't want a majority yet? We just want to separate out the votes so we at least clear people?

I'll check back after lunch, and if that's the case, then I'll pick someone who's not been picked yet... If we want to try to get a majority, then I'll see where people are leaning...

Edited to add: Sorry to hear that, Longhorn_fan... My thoughts are with you and your family at this time...

I agree with Jayo, there will prob be mandatory firings the first 2 rounds, and I am not sure how much help those can be. Faith, I also noticed that the memo did not mention zombies, and we have not either. Does the backstory remind anyone of the movie Dawn of the Dead?

It kinda does... I thought it was a really witty take on this game (an infected among us)...

I think the memo not mentioning it could just be because the Boss didn't realize that this is the theme... Back when I used to play before, it was regular Boss/Rat stuff... I'm in a WW game now where it's like the CIA, so all these new themes really do make things more interesting... Perhaps the Boss just didn't re-read the original post that explained it all out...

So if we're going for everyone getting one vote, then I will vote for lillyPad7891... I see that Mocha doesn't have a vote yet, but something tells me that Mocha would have been aware of the Zombie theme, so I'm going Lilly instead...

Hopefully we get a clear picture of where everyone's at before the round ends, so we can at least use the information for next round...

Edited to Bold and Red Color my vote (so it stands out)... Re-edited to add this line about editing...

So sorry about my delayed response, I meant to be back earlier, but never made it back! Okay, I tend to believe nicats though don't know much of his cold tendencies, I think that is a safe enough clear. Longhorn, I haven't seen this particular topic, but it jives with what I know. I would consider her clear. As far as the vote goes, I agree, right now it looks like a mandatory firing day.

My choice for votes at this point while avoiding a majority are pretty limiting...

Jayo, LH, and me are the only ones without votes. Considering Jayo is the only one so far admitting to liking cold, I am not really drawn to him. LH, I really consider clear, voting for myself would only clear me which isn't much good if I am fired xD

Soooo, for now, vote in for Jayo, sorry Jay, you're the best of bad options :p

Vote for Jayo

Will be back to look further as I feel like a slacker ATM...
