CHALLENGE LISTING
Riddle\Phenomenon
Name the object described by the following three words. There may be more than one correct answer, but not all possible answers may be considered correct. If you submit an answer that is incorrect (even if it meets the definition), please consider that an opportunity to name another thing that fits the criteria. Submit your answers to me via PM with the heading: "WTB #2990 Riddle."

The first player to correctly answer the Riddle will receive the Clawshot item which allows one to steal any item from any player's inventory once per round. The second player will earn 5 points, the third player will earn 2 points, and all subsequent players will earn 1 point. In addition, if anyone gets it, the second Keyword Challenge will be unlocked!

large, home, green

This Challenge lasts until the end of Round 3.
Keyword Challenge #1
If any player posts a valid post with the secret Keyword in it, he or she will win a free item. The word is a potentially everyday word. (So, it's not 'hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia'.) Word lists do not count. The word must be found in a sentence inside a valid post. This has a good history of promoting activity, so let's see some interesting stories! (Update: remember that the post does not have to be about the game. Also, any tense of the word will work as well [*-s, *-ing, *-ed, *-like, etc. will all do.) This Challenge lasts until the end of the game.

POINTS AND INVENTORIES..........Updated 22:30 EDT Friday
aragorn = 5
braingle01 = 15
buu441 = 6
C0untryGirl = 12
dawnrising = 10 (FIRED)
HABS2933 = 19
hermygranger123 = 1

nitrobasel = 16
sonic102 = 19 | Employment Insurance
srbaxi = 19 | Employment Insurance, Clawshot
tigerlily024 = 22

THE BOSS = 7 FP (100ra = 2; Faith511 = 1; minakodeb = 2; lissiclown = 0; Miracle = -1; dawnrising = 3; Kaipper = 0; KRUGERGIRL14 = 0; max318 = 0)
In the previous round, the Boss earned 5 - n, where n is the number of valid posts a fired player made.
In this round, the Boss earns 7 - n.

List of suspicious people(excluding me ):


Buu:India. Occupation: Student.
Hermygranger: Canada. Occupation: Most probabaly a student.
kmrutlledge: Thailand. Occupation: Most probabaly a student.(low suspicion as she lives in only one timezone)
Sonic: India. Occupation: Most probabaly a student.
Srbaxi:unknown.Occupation: Unknown.
Tigerlily: America.Occupation:Unknown.

If they really answered the Psych Question honestly, that either means that they're students or younger adults, as habs said, and that's a major clue.(and that also makes me suspicious, since I am teenage student, but I live in an area with one timezone only)

yeah. right. me. for the record, i'd never post an answer like round two. but i like this round's answer. people should be left unrestricted by society and do what they want and not what society dictates. (well, i am very anti-social, and i think the human society in general is doomed)

i voted sonic on my way in as safety.

I think the dislike of time zones is not by someone who has them, but someone who doesn't. I know if I want to call my famiy "down home" that they are 1.5 hrs ahead so not to call after about 9pm my time. If I wat to call the West Coasters they are 3hrs behind so I can call up until about 1AM my time. It is not that difficult to comprehend.



Buu, if we all do whst we want, chaos will ensue. What if I decide I want your car? Should I be able to just take it? Or if you upset me, can I just pound the (bleep) out og you?


Q: What is the primary goal? A: To WIN the game.

Wow - a lot of firings! Good to know I'm cleared, though...why would Kruger be a mandatory? I thought she voted - she definitely participated last round.

Thanks for the overtime, sonic, and I put in a random vote for buu.

Who says she was? Who did she vote for, because if she voted, we can tentitively clear that player as well (I never trust ppl voted as they stated - but with multiple ppl who stated a vote for SRBAXI being fired, I think it is safe to assume she is clear.)

EDIT:Just went back through last round's posts and read all Kruger's comments. As far as I can see, she never made a definitive decision about her vote, nor did she state a vote. This could mean she didn't vote but then she was making a lot of comments about people (there is a list ) that she found had "2+ things in common with the memos" though when ased she never elaborated. Not sure what to make of this... maybe she was the rat and did not hack the system (and got boss fired) or she really did forget to vote, and was a mandatory firing. The rat also show up on the firing list if the boss receives 25% of the votes, though I cannot see who other than SRBAXi got multiple voes .. I don't think her firing helps us at all.

Hmm this round is way less active than it was before. Do you guys want to start a majority?

Also is the second Keyword Challenge just the same as the first but with a different word?

I'm not sure how this boss's memo says it's a younger person? Everyone has parents and older people and we were all young once. Adults can think back to when they were young too. But then last round aragon thinks that it's someone younger because the boss's time is not practical and has time to read about new planets. We all have time to play this game, we should all have time to read about things that interest us, unless you spent all your spare time on this game. And about not practical timing, it could also be that the boss is just lazy and is always late. College students can be very lazy too, they go to college and just play around instead of studying.

I'm going to go think about the clues, but they are so hard. I am going to vote for habs. Not that I suspect you. This game is so hard. But every game seems to be.

I will vote for sonic, because I don't really know who to vote for.

why isn't the list of clues copied over to this round as yet? it is a real pain for people like me who use ancient systems to load up another page and look through the clues and come back to this page. it'd be quite helpful if someone could compile the list of clues in the order they were provided.
i vote is still on sonic, so it'd be helpful if we can get a majority going.

I'll keep that in mind.

yup. been three hours since my last post. more points for me
wasn't the award for this challenge the clawshot item? so why did srbaxi end up with +10 points for correctly getting the challenge? am just curious. i got no problems with the points as long as it helps us.

Oh, hey, you're right! Sorry, force of habit...I'll get that fixed.

braingle, I think the memo sounds young, not in the fact it mentions parents but just in the way it is worded. I think all the memos have sounded young.

I really have no idea who to vote for, so am just going to place a random vote I guess. My vote is for braingle01 - not because I suspect her (I don't) but with no one else I suspect either, I ust want to be sure to get a vote in place. It is 0650 here right now and I have to get ready to leave for the day soon. I am not sure when (or if) I'll be back before the end of the round (4 hrs). I likely will be, but no guarantees.

with less than two hours left in the game, i still don't see any clear majorities forming. i'll let my vote stay on sonic for the time being.

Oh hey, srbaxi, I accidentally gave you 10 points for the challenge, when you really have a Clawshot instead.

The Clawshot allows you to, once per round, steal an item from someone else. Just let me know in a post to the game thread or via PM. (Note that I will announce that you stole the item.)
