Well given that both Jayo and Spider voiced votes for Nicats andwere fired, we can be fairly confident that she is not the boss.

it may be worth noting that not only did Alllicat not state a vote but she did not even make a comment all round, yet is still in the game. I am not stating anything definitive, but that could indicate that she may be, if not the boss, at least the rat.

Justin Beiber is a tool.. I am embarrassed to be from the same city as him (well he was born here then moved to a town about 20 mins away. Still too close for my liking. lol

"RESERVED FOR MODERATOR" - that way you can post in the first spot ust by editing the post of whomever starts the game. Makes it easier to see if you have anything to say to us regarding the game. Other than tha, in the games I mod, I request that no one post in blue, so that I can, then if you see a blue post you know it is a mod post.

IF your vote didn't go through then you wouldn't be here as not voting gets you fired. Not posting at all, until now (when I put you up as a possibility) is also a red-flag (to me anyway). Either you voted and just did't feel the need to post or explain your vote (which you are no longer allowed to mention) which btw does not help the game at all. Or you didn't vote because you don't have to.
I am not sure which, but will place my vote on you for now as I have no other leads at the moment.

No they can't.
FROM THE RULES:
The Boss is only allowed to fire people who are on the Firing List. The Firing List contains the following people: 1. Lemmings 2. The Rat (If the rat forgets to hack the network, or if the Boss has received 25% or more of the votes) 3. Anyone that the moderator adds to the list for rule infraction or disorderly conduct.

The Boss will be allowed to fire a variable number of employees from the list depending on the game's logic. The game takes into consideration the round, the number of players left, and the number of people already fired that round due to non-voting.

If you voted for The Boss, you cannot be put on the Firing List.


Since both fired players claimed to vote for Nicats then we can reasonably ascertain that she is not the boss.

And we have our rat possibly! Lol

Alikat, you cannot say you voted or who you voted in a previous round.
You should state who you are voting for this round though.

I also think its alikat and will place my vote there.
My other suspects are talaisawsome (if not rat, could be boss) and I'm still suss on HABS.

Edit: Happy Birthday talaisawsome.

Ok so CSI is popular worldwide, but the movie 3 Idiots is an India film released only in Canada, USA in 2009. It could have had further releases, but I'm sure it would have been for a specific market. And the song tinh ca Tay bac is from what I can gather a love song from Vietnam?? Very strange mix of favourites for someone from USA. I'm conflicted about the gender of our boss. 3 idiots sounds like a male thing to like, yet the romantic song would more likely be from a female. (Then again I did go through a phase of Islands in the Stream as a fave many many moons ago).

I would say our boss is from a multicultural area or family background but is eloquent enough to disguise themselves in the memo/psychs. Also buh bai pepals translates to bye bye peoples. Initially I thought it was Vietnamese or Thai language but after googling buh bai, I worked it out

The only person I think might fit this description is talaisawsome. For now I am going to hold to allikat, but I may change it later. I have confused my thinking a little. The Indian/Vietnamese connection is troublesome. It could be saber or braingle, as we have no idea from their profiles where they are from.

Allkat did not comment once on round 1 but indeed voted or was active during the game as boss or rat.
Everyone voted for round 1 with no inactives (yay!). Also thanks for the RFM definition habs. Will centrally use it next round or this round if something happens

Allikat too.. does sound suspicious. Or maybe she's a confused employee. Her profile says this is her second game.

And Jervis.. 3 Idiots only released in Canada or USA? Where did you even get that? One look at wikipedia tells me much different. It's a very popular film even overseas. No clue about the Vietnamese song.. but for it being romantic and points to female, well most songs are romantic songs.

And talisisawesone.. I don't know what's going on.. confused too?

Imdb (on my phone) has (Can, USA. 2009). As I said though it probably would have been distributed overseas after that. We have SBS which shows non-hollywood foreign films all the time on TV, but I've not heard of 3 idiots before.

Ok so thinking it through, I'm going to stay with allikat as my vote so we have a clear majority on her. If I'm fired please look at talaisawsome next round. Cheers.

Ok so CSI is popular worldwide,

Well the TV thing all but clears me anyway, everyone who knows me knows I don't watch television (look at my interests in my profile (and no I didn't change it ask Jayo (he used it as a clue in one of his games)
imdb (on my phone) has (Can, USA. 2009)

According to IMDB's main site (not the mobile lite site) the movie was release in many countries, including Canada, though I've never heard of it.

I'm conflicted about the gender of our boss.


I too don't think we can read gender into the answers - the movie definitely seems more a male movie that a female one, but if the song translates the way Jervis says it does, I'd guess it to be a female's choice. If pressed I'd say the boss is female as I think that a female ismore likely to enjoy a movie with a male target audience than a male is to enjoy a song aimed at a female audience.
I will stick with my vote on Allikat but will keep Jervis in the back of my mind as he seems to be trying to drive this round. And has been either intentionally (on unintentionally) feeding us erroneous information.

IT was meant a as joke, not to be offensive. It (American Football) is just a much tamer game than rugby yet they wear twice the equipment. I have never seen or head of Aussie Rules. How does it differ from North American Football?

EDITED TO ADD:'

Just looked it up, Aussie Rules looks much closer to Rugby than it does to American Football. They don't have any equipment on in the pictures they have of it on Wikipedia. And it sounds like they actually use their feet more than they do in American Football.
I was making fun of the NFL not this game.

Lol, we have 4 codes of football here in Australia.
Rugby Union, which is the international Rugby.
Rugby League which is like Rugby except that the play is quickly stopped and started by playing the ball between the legs of the tackled player. Also the points scoring is slightly different and after being tackled 6 times, a side has to hand over the ball. Similar to a side-out in NFL. All hand passes must go backward, and there is not much foot to ball contact.
Soccer, which I think you also call soccer, the Europeans call football.
Aussie Rules which is nothing like soccer or rugby. Lol. Aerial ping-pong could be another name for it. Players kick or hand punch the ball to other players on their team. If a kick is caught on the full by either side ( minimum distance applies) then they get a free kick. Object is to kick the ball between the goal posts for 6 points. There are posts either side of the goal, if they miss the goal but still get it within the outer posts they gain 1 point. Players can bounce the ball, but not run with it in their hands. (Has similarity to netball in some ways, except for kicking and a huge field).
We do have small numbers of people who play American NFL, or Gaelic (Irish) football, but the other 4 codes are the main 'football' we play.

I don't think I'm trying to drive the round. I'm just trying to give some perspective on what I think. Lol

I did want you, HABS, to be cleared in round 1 and would have pushed more for that to happen if I'd been a bit more active, but also happy that at least we have nicats cleared.

I only have suspicion on you really for not clearing me. But that is the only reason and its not really a worry. The boss is looking like it would be more likely to be tala, sader or braingle01. ( um, has sader updated their country and gender in their profile? I thought she was blank before?)

PS- tala is male.

I lay out my thought process on here too sometimes, so maybe I just gave it more weight than need be.

I did want you, HABS, to be cleared in round

I offered to be cleared, but since it is obviously not me, it is basically wasting the round to find out something to which those how know me can attest. The memo is definitely not me.

I only have suspicion on you really for not clearing me.

So because I don't agree with your reason for clearing yourself, that makes me suspicious? Okay

has sader updated their country and gender in their profile? I thought she was blank before?)

I don't think so, there is no flag, but if you go into the profile it says Califonia.


PS- tala is male.

Ooops, Sorry tala, part of my losing most of my vision included losing a lot of colour perception, and the paler colours all look alike to me. I based it on the name tala which I assumed was female.

I still have no idea as to the identity of the boss, but think we should clear someone so will leave my vote where it is as that seems to be where the majority is heading.

So rugby is considered a form of football? Here they are two totally different games.

sader, sometimes the boss will use regional terms and language without really thinking about it. Or mention something (like the movie and song) that point us in a certain direction. Knowing where someone ii from, sometimes helps us eliminate them from suspicion. Knowing someone's age or gender helps for the same reason. IF the boss comments on listening to 8-tracks, LPs or cassette tapes, or watching a Betamax, we can reasonably eliminate anyone born after the early 80s, a boss who lists Justin Beiber as a favorite artist is likely under 20, and so on.
Knowing something about your teammates is useful in narrowing down the suspect pool.
In this case, even given the foreign aspect to the answers, due to the fact so many people in North America speak languages other than English it does not help us much.
