Happy boss-finding everybody!

Rat clue: What Vladimir Abazarov does, I sound like.


Who needs a witty signature anyway?

Aw man, we lost asteroid And the boss didn't fire anyone else? Huh?

Vladimir Abazarov is a geologist who works in oil fields. So, not sure what to make of that.

Yeah I wonder why asteroid was the only one fired. Either the boss had something on his mind to throw us off, or they are inexperienced to the point that thry though they could only fire one person.

It's a strange one.

C'est la vie, I suppose.

Safety for Limerick for now.

Well then. We lost a cleared player and are no closer to finding the boss. Interesting choice of firing. Do we want to go with doubles again?

Doubles sounds good. I put in a safety vote for JQPublic for the time being.

OMG. The boss is very much a sneaky !! Lol

I didnt expect that to happen.

My order of suspects at this stage are:
Kaipper
Longhorn fan
Jpost
Limerick

Then less likely mocha, Stewie and JQPublic. But I haven't a clue for the rat as yet. Will think about it for the next day. Cant get the clue just yet.

Can I suggest also, if you work out who the rat is, don't let the rat know that you know.

Wait, what? The rat can't fire us, so what's the big deal? I'm a little confused here...how does knowing who the rat is help us?

I am also wondering why we should not tell everyone who the rat is? Unless you are thinking that we can use it against the rat as we see who they are defending later in the game? I would just worry that the person who has figured it out would get fired before having a chance to share... thus it would be better to disarm the rat than try to deceive them.

so who is cleared now? Still got a day to log in a vote but I'm not sure who. While I can't discuss who I actually voted for last time, I can say I can vote for that person again (I think), unless we feel he's cleared.

yeah, that was my thought mocha. You're right probably best to disarm the rat... I still have no idea from that clue. Geologist or miner or rigger... doesn't sound like anyone.

jpost, the only person cleared is coolmaths.

@jpost, you registered your vote for me last round. I don't think you can reveal who you actually voted for in any way. It's against the rules and the mod can put you on the mandatory firing list. This may have happened to asteroidbelt last round because he revealed his vote after the round was over... either that or he managed to get himself in a majority.

@coolmaths, sweetness, if people vote for you it's to try and work out if you are the boss. It is not like in werewolf where they are trying to eliminate you. In this game it's good if people are voting for you (unless of course you are the boss!). Remember too it is just a game. Once we finish this we get to play another. woohoo! EDIT: to answer your question yesterday - yes the mod can see all the roles of the players.

@Longhorn_fan, you need to do something.

@Stewie, oh, the interviews go forever! I couldn't read it all. I started just scanning over the questions for relevance. Woohoo, your brother is moving out, does that mean you get a bathroom to yourself? Next time I come to Ireland, we will have to go for a coffee somewhere. I was hoping to get to Antwerp this year and then do a bit of travel, but I think I will be limited on funds. I need to save some money to play at our Nationals for the competitive sport I play. Can't wait because it will be up near Cairns - Great Barrier Reef, here I come!!

@Thekid4 - MY HEAD HURTS!!! I hate it when I can't work out a clue!

EDIT: Forgot to say - I think the MoT will work - I will vote for Limerick now. But if need be, I will change later. with 9 of us, we can still do 4x pairs and coolmaths puts a vote for someone else.

Do not tell me what I need to do and not do. I had to put my cat to sleep yesterday and I am not the happiest person right now.

I voted for Kaiper.

Sorry to hear about your cat. Just following up on your message to asteroid yesterday. I totally understand, we had to put our 21yr old cat down 3 months ago. It's a very hard thing to do and you aren't going to be too happy for a few weeks. Really hard to not have them crying at you for food, or walking over your computer/book/homework when they want your attention.

Voting list thus far:

coolmaths (cleared)
jpost - same as last round
jervis - Limerick
JQPublic - Limerick

Kaipper - JQPublic
Limerick - mocha613
Longhorn_fan - Kaipper
mocha613 - JQPublic
StewieGriffin - Kaipper

Everyone in red still needs to place a vote - especially coolmaths as we don't want him on the firing list.

I will vote as I did last round, then, if anyone wants to double with me on that one.

Sorry to hear about your cats, jervis and Longhorn. Mine never seem to make it past five years, except for the one I keep inside. Yes, the rest are outside cats but they like it that way. Truth to tell, the only reason the inside cat is inside is because she is scared of the outside cats. So, anybody want another cat? One of my outside cats just had a litter before I could get her neutered.

I'll join the vote for JQ. Jpost, it might be helpful for you to state here who you are voting for to remove any ambiguity.

Again, you are not voted on to be really under suspicion at this point of the game, cool, and you are cleared on top of that. Only way a vote means anything is if it gets over 50% of the votes, and that only means something if they are the boss and you want to win. Right now a majority on you means people are trying to clear you by getting themselves fired. Odd game, this.

Suspicions abound, but not enough to form the requisite majorities.

Vote for Mochs.

Jpost, who did you vote for? If you switch to Mocha, we will have four pairs and coolmaths can be a majority of one.

Edit: Actually, that would be 2-3 pairs, depending on who the boss and rat pretended to vote for.

I don't think so ... That rule is hardly ever enforced nowadays.

I'll be keeping my vote, but I'm starting to think this pair thing is a bit too risky ... If I learnt anything by being a rat last time, it was that you can never trust people to vote for the person for whom they said they would vote. Even if they don't lie, they'll make a mistake. Even if they don't make a mistake, their computers will make one for them, and they'll be mandatories.

That would be no different to majority of 1 though. I actually don't think I like the majority of 1 strategy so much, as boss has everyone to choose from and will also find out who their rat is. If everyone votes for different people, boss gets all names on their firing list except for the rat ( provided the rat does their job ). Majority of 2 is just as risky as being a lemming with everyone voting the same, but the rat won't be as obvious to the boss this way.

We will all get an insight into which pairs contain rat and boss. It should actually clear a few more people if logic works, and of course if everyone does actually vote who they said.

I agree asteroidbelt was likely in majority of 2 or 3 and then fired anyway. Hopefully we will get some good information out of the next firing. Good luck everyone.

My cat would have been 8 on June 26. He was diagnosed as a diabetic back in November. He was a great cat. The disease just took a hold of him. I am suspecting he might have had pancreatic cancer. He is extreamly missed.

It will be after the fact, that is, the end of the round, but I was voting jervis like before. (Hope that doesn't get me fired.)

I reported just in case I do get fired. But since what I said is common knowledge to anyone who can read from the last two days, my hope is that the mod and boss can show some leniency. So if I am not fired, the mod allowed it and the boss went along with it. Maybe it might help the strategy.

I was going to modfire asteroid, but the boss took care of it for me. It's too late now for me to modfire anybody, anyway. Sorry!

At this point, it says there are 2 days and 3 hours left. If everyone has been online like jervis said, either the boss is trying to be sneaky or, to give the benefit of the doubt (and I haven't been paying attention to the time), maybe the boss was online early yesterday morning before the round ended. When did the round end? Did anyone keep track of that, hopefully?

Looks like the boss sent the memo, now we are waiting for The Kid to post it. The time currently says 1 day, 23 hours.
