Please make sure to read the rules before playing! I do enforce them!

Please note: I will wait an amount of time between 0 seconds and 86399 seconds after the Boss submits the Memo before starting the next round. The idea is to try to start near one of the seven o'clocks GMT-3.

Psych question submitted! Bored? While you wait, check out ASR 5! You can see how these games run, but please keep in mind that the game you are about to play has experimental rules.

Also, you can view some behind-the-scenes images here!


O hai! Welcome to Jarmihi's Fabulous Game Parlor! (PARTY! -- open in new tab for ultima-fun!)
In this game, the Active Store bazaar returns with fun new mechanics!

This is a NEW edition of Active Store Revamped! Instead of purchasing items directly, you use a combination of a limited community pool of resources and points you earn to forge complete items! The community earns resources by completing challenges and being fired. You earn points by leading the company to success by taking the initiative and completing challenges faster and better than everyone else!

There are many hidden challenges and items...see if you can get them all!

In Round 0, if you post once, you earn a point before the game even begins!


Also, if you all could post the time zone in which you currently reside, that would be great for time co-ordination. Thanks! -- Jarmihi

Please note that this game requires you to post at least once in each round. If you cannot meet that commitment, please do not play. You WILL be fired!

Jarmini, is this new type of gameplay going to stick for all of your later games, or is it only for this one?

It depends on whether it sticks. This variant solves a few problems with the mechanics, but if it proves to be "too different" I'll revert back to the original ASR. Consider this a test. I'm GLaD you could make it!

Also, my name is Jarmihi, with an H. "Jair-mee-high"

I'm GLaD that "this whole time" isn't very long a time.

Welcome, new players! Welcome back, old friends! I'm glad you've chosen to spend the next week or so with me. If this rate of registration keeps up, we should be ready to start the first round by Tuesday night/Wednesday.

Well here we are again.
It's always such a pleasure.
Remember when you tried
to fire me twice?
Oh how we laughed and laughed
except I wasn't laughing
Under the circumstances I've been
shockingly nice
You want a won game?
Take it.
That's what I'm counting on.
I used to want you fired but now
I only want you gone.

They were a lot like you
(Maybe not quite as chatty)
Now a little Rat of ours is
in here too
One day I got a memo
so I could be the Boss
It's such a shame there can only
be one per game
You've got your pointless medal.
That's what I'm counting on.
I'll leave you all to it
Now I only want you gone.

Goodbye best employee.
Oh, did you think I meant you?
That would be funny
if you weren't fired.
Well I still have my Rat
I don't need anyone else
When you're all fired maybe
[REDACTED]
Go play some more WTB.
That's what I'm counting on.
I won't be playing with you
Now I only want you gone.
Now I only want you gone.
Now I only want you
gone.

Is there going to be cake as one of the objects?

Yes, Thekid4, there will be cake.

For everyone who is familiar with the usual game system, here are the changes that the slightly different, new test system makes:

-It allows for better integration of challenges and teamwork.
-It limits the number of certain types of items, like clues and miracles.
-It resolves the issue where one player uses a '1 per round' item before another: you now have the choice to wait for that item to be available again or to use another item of the same cost. You won't be stuck with a useless item unless you choose to be.
-It allows for the creation of four new items with a combined total of eight power-effects.

It maintains the base mechanic of posting to earn points, which keeps players active.

-It limits the number of certain types of items, like clues and miracles.

I remember the last time you had a WTB game, a group of people just suddenly bought a huge amount of miracles, resulting in koin getting outed, because princess was given the ability of a seer and she chose kmrultedge (I think) and she was the rat.

Hey Kaipper!
On the werewolf game, the wolves will probably win because if they shoot a human 1 more time, the were wolves win and they all want to shoot me and I am a human.

themasterbrain, we aren't supposed to discuss WWG/WTB outside of the actual game...especially since you are revealing an identity. You mentioned being rather new to Braingle, maybe you want to look at some of the completed games and see what other players do. Especially in WTB, since this game requires a lot of strategy.

jarmihi, don't worry, you're the only one who has ever gotten the reference! Though, it was originally from a school project, so...
