Thank you, Limerick. This is the mod. (I apologize for making it sound like I possessed you, I got to thinking a while ago that it would be cool if a mod did that to somebody who RFMs.) Anyway, you guys got the rat clue. What a geologist does, I sound like. A geologist does geology. Geology sounds like geometry. Geometry is a type of math. Honestly, I can't believe you got the boss clue but not the rat clue. The rat clue was supposed to be easier.

I have learned a lot about modding a game through this game, and while I do not intend to mod for a while more, (you feel so much pressure!), I now know how it feels to mod and never take a good mod for granted when I am a regular player. Goodbye, now.

And there we have it

It's been fun though I think the clues were a bit overpowering this game, particularly the Boss clue...

The Boss has a hard enough time without clues... I kind of think the Boss clues should be all but impossible, and we were already beginning to build a case against him even without the clue... Oh well, I still enjoyed the playing out of the ending as one by one things just fell into place.

Good game all!

ETA: Oh, and thanks for the game, Kid, it was fun!

Same here, but to be honist i thought we were goners in round 3 . Good game.
I wanted to quit, say who i was, but that would've ruined the game

Yes, thanks Thekid! You did great for your first game moderating. I agree with Limerick about clues. Too many in a game can just make it too easy for the employees and even harder for the boss. Can you tell us what the rat clue pointed to? I couldn't get it, and I so love puzzles!

Ah coolmaths, first to be cleared but you were the Rat!! You may need to re-read the rules again. The only way to be fired as the rat is to not 'hack the system' or if the boss gets a certain number of votes. You couldn't be voted 'out' by the rest of us. Here I thought you were being a crazy little kid, but then you mentioned the SAT's and I worked out you must have been acting a little bit to confuse us all. Good job.

jpost, nice strategy! I really couldn't work out whether it was yourself, Limerick or Stewie in the whole game. I wrote in white during round 3, expecting to be fired, and I was hoping that Longhorn or another employee would see it and point it out.

Great work Limerick, Kaipper and JQPublic. I'm so glad you guys worked it out so we had a concensus that round!

Good luck in your next games everyone.

@Limerick, haha! I can't believe I forgot Stewie was fired! Of course he was cleared! Lucky I didn't do somehting like that in WWG, I'd have been instantly shot. (Actually, I got shot anyway for talking too much! )

Hey kid...You did a good job modding. I gave you 3 stars. Just remember you have to submit a psych question if you are modding, espically if you have more than a day to come up with one. It is actually a good idea to come up with them before you start the game so you can just submit them as soon as you start the new round. Just a bit of helpful info there

Like what you love, and love what you got.

Thank you Longhorn. I will remember that.

Who needs a witty signature anyway?

I really need to change my screen name. Every time I happen to be boss (which has been twice before) I am given with the first clue by the mod. When I first signed up for braingle, I wanted a simple name to type so I wouldn't have to think too hard to log on. Since the mods I had when I was boss were teens, they have a hard time trying to be creative enough to give a boss clue without giving it away.
However, this was a successful game for me because I learned a lot about the strategy of WTB with this game. I also think it will be impossible for me to ever be boss and win. I have been the rat and won, though, so that's something.

Just in case I am misunderstood by Thekid, I am not blaming you for your boss clue. Truth to tell, they were already on to me before the clue, so maybe your comment about the boss not being who it seemed was supposed to help me since I was the obvious choice. I was hoping that research would show up Limerick, though. Nobody who voted for him ever got fired until they voted for someone else. I was obviously overthinking myself.

To coolmaths, thank you for your attempt at helping but it was a losing proposition anyway. I said from the beginning that despite the many games of WTB I have played I still did not play the game well.

So, congrats to the employees and to the mod, good game.

Edit: If any have questions about what I was trying to do, or have suggestions on how I could have improved the strategy as boss, feel free to comment as I will check back here for the next few days to see if anyone can help.

Jpost, I will be more creative next time. And yes, my comment about the boss not being who you thought it was was, in fact, supposed to protect you.
