That was really fast!!! I am putting in a safety vote for DCF. No numbers shouldn't be too hard. I don't really use a lot of numbers.

Have we cleared WHEELS yet? I think the writing style of the memos is similar to hers in the discussions. I think we should aim for her.

Also, MOD, are we allowed to use a number if it is in a player's name?


Sorry, nothing to see here folks, keep moving.

I feel like the only player we've actually cleared is SEEK. Based on who was fired, and the memo.

We can try to clear WHEELS this round. I will put in a vote for WHEELS for now.

I'm just going to throw out a few theories to start some discussion. I don't think FAITH is the boss. She's been trying to clear players and search for answers every round. I think I'm actually going to switch my vote to JAYO because he's been laying low. He had also put a winky face after stating something like "you're the boss" to MATHGEEK the last round. It's very likely that he could just be referencing the game. I thought that DCF was the boss, but now I'm getting more of a rat vibe from her. The fact that she would throw WHEELS under the bus over something so trivial as her writing style just doesn't sit right with me. And if DCF was the rat, it would make sense that she wouldn't want everyone to vote for JAYO. She would want people to vote for WHEELS. Also, there was one round where MATHGEEK didn't give Jayo's misspelling of "your" a strike, but gave HABS spelling of "and" a strike. I could be completely wrong, but I just want to start some discussion.

In addition, JAYO moderated the last WTB game where we used writing styles to pinpoint the boss. That doesn't really help as much because DCF and FAITH were also in that game.

Hey guys, I am not the Boss so it would be a waste to clear me this round.
I don't think that MATH would be so obviously biased towards the Boss so I think you are being a little unfair there OMAR.

I'll vote OMAR again this round and OMAR, I really don't understand the relevance of whether some people here were in the game I moderated or not.

Ok, so it seems like now people are straying away from WHEELS and it's coming down to OMAR versus JAYO?

If we're lucky, we will get more people to post today so we can see where we're headed. It would be nice to at least clear another person this round.

JAYO, I appreciate your candor, but you have to know that in this game and the werewolf game, saying it's not you does not always convince people. That's not to say that you are the boss, just that saying that never really proves your argument.

As for DCF throwing WHEELS under the bus, I didn't really see it that way. I just figured that DCF was taking a stab in the dark, and decided to vote for WHEELS. I got targeted in my last game for writing style (as you pointed out). I assumed that DCF was just doing that to WHEELS.

It's not like it's the werewolf game, where false accusations gets someone shot. It's the boss game, so if we're wrong, we just wasted a round. People stay in the game.

My suspicion for you JAYO is a little stronger than my suspicion for anyone else so I am not going to change my vote.

I'm starting to get a little suspicious of OMAR, going on the hunt like he is. However the boss seems to be quite clever and I know that JAYO can be quite clever. I'm not sure what to think so I will place a safety vote for WHEELS and check back this afternoon.

OMAR, I am not the rat or boss, and I think your statement is a little 'ratty' itself. Your stated votes and suspicions change every round, with little or no reason, and you consistently vote against the majority. We do not receive clues in this game, so all we have to go on are writing styles in the memos and the discussions. I agree with both JAYO and FAITH: referencing other games is not really helpful, and all we can do is try to clear players.

You seem overly defensive of my vote for WHEELS, but assert that FAITH must not be the boss because she is helping to 'clear players', so I propose that if WHEELS is cleared, we try FAITH next. Additionally, the stated votes in round 2 indicated a voting loop between you and GYMBOY, and most bosses would have fired you both. You are still here, so you probably did not vote (and neither does the rat).

WHEELS- no stated vote
DCF-WHEELS
FAITH-? (I could not tell from your post)
JAYO-OMAR
OMAR-? (me or JAYO)
SEEKRGRL-WHEELS


We need at least [May minus March] more votes to clear WHEELS. Unfortunately, we do not have many rounds left to waste.

I stated earlier that I was going to vote for WHEELS, after you suggested we try to clear her.

My second post was simply to discuss the fact that I thought we were going to try and clear WHEELS, but that JAYO and OMAR suddenly got all over each other for some reason. It seemed like such strong opinions to me. So that made me wonder if we were going to try and clear someone else instead (either JAYO or OMAR).

Quite frankly, it seems to me that everyone is getting really defensive, which is either because they are not the boss, or they are, and they're trying to turn the heat onto others. Of course, the more defensive people get, the more suspicious they seem. Although JAYO's response seemed simple - saying it's not him, your aggressive response seems more suspicious, DCF. That doesn't mean I think you're the boss, but I don't think it helps your case. Again, no one leaves the game if we clear them, unless they were part of a majority, so it's not life or death in this game like it is in the werewolf game.

By the way, the rule says no numbers. Does that mean we can't even spell out numbers? I just thought we couldn't use the actual numbers, not that we couldn't reference numbers (spelled out). I am curious to know how that works.

My bottom line is that I am currently voting for WHEELS, but I am open to clearing someone else if the group wants to.

NOTE: If I missed anything in a previous round, you're lucky. You got away lucky. I only count things posted the current round. If something slipped me by, you're one lucky SOB.

NOTE II: Faith, only digits are banned. Go ahead and use "four". Just don't use "4".

Looking at the voting with only one hour left to go, I wonder about the need to clear WHEELS.

We're also risking one of our only cleared players (SEEKR) in this current majority. Does that seem wise? What if she gets fired? We may clear one player, but we lose one cleared player.

I'm considering changing my vote, but I'm not sure which way to go. I see what DCF is saying about OMAR not wanting to go with the majority, but it makes me wonder: If OMAR was the boss or the rat, wouldn't he just go with the flow? His vote wouldn't be counted either way, so what good would it do for OMAR to divert attention away from a majority, unless that majority was going for the boss? It just seems like failed logic to me.

I also don't agree with OMAR's thought that MATH would be going easy on JAYO because he's the boss. The boss should have to follow all of the same rules that we follow. I believe the boss can be fired by the moderator, the same way an employee can. So I don't think that's enough to point to JAYO.

If the boss is to receive 3 strikes, his/her identity will be revealed, as I am unable to Mandatory fire them.
