Keyword Challenge #1 and #2
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.

Here's a full list of clues we have currently:

Clue #1: difficult to understand
Clue #2: alpha
Clue #3: taught
Clue #4: polychrome
Clue #5: critical
Clue #6: musical
Clue #7: computer
Clue #8: edible
Clue #9: Dinosaurs
Clue #10: Big bang

On last round's firings, there were no mandatories and I think all the three were fired by the boss. Well, I didn't vote against any of these 3 players. what about you all?

srbaxi: Didn't mention who she's voting.
hermy: aragorn
nitrobasel: Didn't mention

Looking at the clues, I've a strong suspicion on kmr. According to his profile, he's interested in music, has the word "chocolate"(which is an edible) in his profile and is interested in history of things(this might relate to dinosaurs).

Hey, hey kmr, buu is cleared! Srbaxi voted for him.

I'll do a voting analysis soon.

Hermygranger: Voted for aragorn.
Nitrobasel: Mandatory maybe?
Srbaxi: Voted for buu.

We have cleared aragorn and buu.

I have a suspicion that the boss is trying to frame me, nobody whom I voted for has been fired, and I have not been fired.

Voting HABS. Let's make a majority on him.

Posted: 12:26AM Aug 3, 2013

i think habs is a she?
last round, two of my suspects, srbaxi and hermy were fired. narrows down the search a bit. among the remaining players, i don't think habs is likely. the second round memo. she doesn't need to do something like that.
right now, i feel that the boss is among tigerlily, braingle01 and kmr (followed by sonic and country girl), in that order of suspicion. so my vote in on tigerlily at the moment.

I should vote Habs, buu has voted for Braingle, kmr should vote for lilly, aragorn on kmr, Country girl should vote for me and lilly should vote for country girl.

After we have decided on which of these to have a majority on, the other two should vote for them.

How's my plan? I say we should clear HABS.

SR did the time travel item I think.

Braingle, HABS and Country haven't posted, but I'm sure they will.
Aragorn, got anything with the clues?
We should all post at least 10 posts, so the boss does not have any benefit firing us. He already has 10.
And again, please buy insurance!

Posted: 01:06AM Aug 3, 2013

In order for 2 people to be cleared, last round everyone must have voted differently. not sure if we accomplished that because some people didn't state a vote and no telling who they voted. not to mention we always have to account for boss and rat because they can't vote.

I'm not sure what sonic's idea is. I can see why buu and aragon vote out of majority but why the exact assignments? I don't mind clearing habs though. I do find that buu is adamant that she is cleared a bit odd?

It's also interesting that sonic pointed that the boss never fired whoever he voted. Does this mean the boss follows the game a lot and is very active?

@sonic: i guess most of us here already have 10 posts done in the game total.
@braingle01: i am just insisting that she is clear from the memos, and so we can use the round the clear someone else instead of just confirming something which is almost sure.

and i find it weird why sonic would post about why the boss never fired who he voted for. that doesn't clear him at all. if he got fired, then the person he voted for would be clear, but firing the person he voted for doesn't say anything (except clearing the person who the fired person voted for)

they above part maybe a bit confusing to follow, but am sure you'll get it.
braingle01, would you state who you voted for?

and how will your exact assignments actually help? what you suggested will form a majority of at most 3 votes on a person. and that is without counting the boss and rat's fake votes in between. that won't clear anyone.

Deleted post was double.

Ok, so who should we clear? 6 people should vote for that person. Buu should not be one of those six, as per his wish. I might not be one of those six.

Guys, the only person who can be fired by a majority vote is the boss. Voting for someone will not get them fired.(unless you want them fired) it is actually likely to protect a innocent person from firing, as they will not be a lemming! And also, isn't a good boss supost to look trustworthy? I am fairly certain Hans is good enough at this game, and most decidedly smart enough to act the same if she is or isn't the boss.

I agree that habs is good and will act the same, although I have not seen a game she was boss but rat yes. She acted like this too.

Also I would like to remind everyone that if you are cleared as boss does not mean you are cleared as rat.

I don't know who to vote for but if I'd had to pick I'll vote habs too but if people are adamant to trust her and not vote it does not work.

The clues given are not so direct. This makes the game more interesting. Easier clues would have spoiled the fun.

Well somebody hinted about Greece in the previous round. Not sure who it was. We should try to fit all the clues together. BTW, how many more rounds are left? At the most 2?

Posted: 06:45AM Aug 3, 2013

Well, buu. In the first round lissiclown said the timezone made sense, she got fired that round anyway.

About the greece thing. Do you think it's something about the gods or myths? That's what I think when I think about greece. While searching this is what I got http://www.whats-your-sign.com/lily-meaning.html

Is it pointing to tigerlily?

Not sure about how many rounds. I think 2 or 3.

Possibly, but there is a lot more to Greece than just Gods and Myths (I have a few Greek friends who would be shocked to hear their country has done nothing of note for thousands of years)

While searching this is what I got http://www.whats-your-sign.com/lily-meaning.html
Is it pointing to tigerlily?

I don't see how? IT says the lilly is a symbol of "motherhood" and I am pretty sure TL is still farily young and not a mother. But I suppose anything is possible.

That does seem to be the case a lot of the time, especially with an inexperienced boss.

tHE ONLY WAY for a player to be fired is to either not vote (and be a mandatory firing) or to vote with the crowd for someone who is not the boss ("The Candidate") and become a "lemming" - all lemmings are on the firing list. The boss gets to choose ONLY from those players on his list and is told how many he can fire (including mandies. IF the round allows 3 firings and there are 2 mandatory firings, boss only gets to pick 1 (bringing the total to 3).

A VERY good point to keep in mind, though as I've said (many times) I don't care who the rat is knowing doesn't help us much anyway).

How am I being defensive? All I've said is I wouldn't write those memos, there is nothing in them that sound remotely like me. I have also said for 3 rounds to CLEAR ME! The boss would say it maybe once (early on so no one listened) but not repetitively (the boss would not want to risk getting fired).

- they do? I've never heard that saying before and I don't buy into it, since a cleared player has no more insight into the game than the undeclared ones.

let's follow buu Let's NOT since BUU is cleared we don't want him in a majority, that is setting him up to be fired next round (bosses and wolves LOVE cleared players, it givers them a safe target

^^^^ THIS actually makes me suspicious. Sonic has played enough games with more experienced players to know you NEVER put a cleared player in danger, yet he did just that. Luckily Buu say it and (hopefully) either has or will change his vote.
----------------------------------
Right now, my best guess is Sonic for Boss, and Braingle for Rat

What I saw there it said "Greek lore associates lily meaning with birth" I know greece has a lot more than god and myths. I meant to say the first thing I thought of. I know a lot more. I guess I could put that to use.

Another game I saw clues that seem to point to multiple people in some way and they don't mean to. I'm probably thinking something dumb like usual.

What I was saying about being cleared as boss doesn't mean cleared as rat is that lily wanted to clear habs so we can trust her 100%. You can't do that in case you are trusting the rat.

I think a lot of games are like that. The last game I moderated, every clue pointed to at least 3 people, ,some people fit multiple clues, but ONLY ONE fit them all.

I'm probably thinking something dumb like usual.

Nah, you're not thinking dumb, just along a different path ... which can sometimes be the right path to take. I must say, it is a lot more enjoyable to have you in games now that you have found a voice.

What I was saying about being cleared as boss doesn't mean cleared as rat is that lily wanted to clear habs so we can trust her 100%. You can't do that in case you are trusting the rat.


I totally agree, a good rat will cast suspicion not only on others but themselves as well. A good Boss, figures out who the rat is and uses this info. Keeping a suspicious rat around, makes him look more like the boss, thus keeping the boss safe. When I am rat, I try to let the obss know, while at the same time. keeping the employees in the dark... it is not alwyas easy.

buu441 successfully completed the Challenge! +10

I'm considering a variation of the game called "Active Store Revamped: Hard Mode" which makes the ASR mechanics more difficult by raising prices and giving less with the items. What do you think of such a variation? +1 point for a constructive response. I ask this because the employees have won the most recent four of the six ASR games I've run.

Also, please note that I've increased the price of the Divination Card to 7 as of this post because I'm quickly running out of ideas.

ah. finally i got to a challenge first I sure love ciphers and was actually waiting for this one to turn up as i remembered there were cipher challenges in previous games.

about making the game harder. I won't mind it. increasing the cost and removing the overtime pay would be good. plus remove the time travel. a failed challenge is a failed one. no second chances. maybe you can bring the attendance challenge a bit later on like round 3 or 4.

p.s. i hope this post is worth 3 points. 1 for constructive response and 2 for game related post. we're still in easy mode. haha.

WTG Buu!

. I ask this because the employees have won the most recent four of the six ASR games I've run.
I don't know that the employees winning 4/6 games is reflective of the difficulty level of your games. IF the employees won 4/6, then the boss won 2/6, or 1/3 = 0.33 % of the games.

According to the main game page, overall, the Boss has only won 402 or 1430 games played (or 28%) YOUR BOSSES are more successful than the average boss on the site.

I was actually looking more at the trend that the employees have won the last four consecutive ASR games out of the six there have been...which is supposed to be statistically improbable. Thus, I'm wondering if I should make the game less gratuitous with the points and items. Also, you're right about the ratio, but the samples are so different. One is on a scale of 1430 games and mine is on a scale of 6.

CONSTANT "suspicion" on a player that is OBVIOUSLY not the boss, is in and of itsellf suspicious.

Forget the memos, how do the clues fit me?

Clue #1: difficult to understand--> I am not hard to understand

Clue #2: alpha ---> Not sure how this fits, please enlighten me

Clue #3: taught ----> I did teach English in Korea but this is not a well known fact so wuld not e used as a hint. I graduaged Uni 20 years ago.

Clue #4: polychrome ---> I guess if we are looking at flags, this works
Clue #5: critical -----> I can be critical but who can't
Clue #6: musical ----> I can't play an instruments, can't even read music, and rerely listen to it.

Clue #7: computer----> I've owned a compuer (PC) for over 30 years and currently own 2 Desktops, 2 Laptops, and 3 Tablets (so yes this could be me)

Clue #8: edible ----> NOTHING on my profile fits this clue. I HATE food (which anyone who knows me knows)

Clue #9: Dinosaurs ----> I gues I'm a dinosaur in relation to most of you

Clue #10: Big bang ----> THough I don't watch much TV, I do like this show, and completely buy the Big Bang as a more plausible theory than any creation myths

Clue #11 - SORRY I MUST BE MISSING IT CAN'T SEEM TO SEE IT.

Clue #12: motorsport ---> I HATE all motorsports - I joke with my husband that NASCAR stands for "'Not A Sport 'Cars 'Around 'Racetacks
or Non Athletic Sport
'Centres 'Around 'Rednecks

when i think of dinosaurs and big bang together, the first thing that comes to my mind is calvin and hobbes. if you have read those comics, you know how wild his imagination runs with both dinosaurs and sci-fi stuff. and the avi of sonic is definitely that. but dunno how the rest of the clues fit him.

computer and music together: both involve keyboard or keys.

Your name: buu441
Item: rat trap (with double points)
Quantity:1
Target, if applicable: na
Use Immediately? : yes

Your name: buu441
Item: divination card
Quantity: 3
Target, if applicable: na
Use Immediately? : yes.

21+12=33. i should have more than that by now (34 or 35 depending on the boss).


i am using the rat trap just to confirm whether the rat is still in the game or not. plus i hope the double points bonus will be continued after this overtime pay expires.
@jar: i hope this will get us 2x and not 1.5x? a you mentioned it only for overtime pay.

The Rat Trap will be double, yes. It will also stack with an Overtime Pay so that together they would be a 2.5x multiplier.

After a quick check on people's profiles, I see:
On clue #1: Difficult to understand, I think it refers to KMR. Apparently he's from Thailand, and Thai langauge is difficult for a foreigner.

Clue #2: Alpha, Both HABS and KMR have a quiz rating, A (which is english representation of Greek letter Alpha)

Clue #3,4,5: Not sure on these

Clue #6: Musical --> Could be KMR

Clue #7: Computer -->Could be HABS

clue #8: Edible -> KMR(has word "chocolate"), It could have been buu(has an apple) also, but he's already cleared.

clue #9-12: Not sure

I'm saving my vote on KMR for now.

Sorry, sorry. I have a six-almost-seven year old brother who likes having my attention. (I'm twenty and have a bit more responsibility for him than a "normal" sibling, and it was lunch time, so you can see the conflict of interest.) xD

Clue #13: Internet

I think that saying meant that the cleared one is trustworthy - although maybe not - since that person could be the rat.

Plus, I don't get why we shouldn't all get in a majority especially at the end round - a double majority, that is. We're sure to get at least one cleared player, maybe two.

BTW, there is only 6 more hours and we don't even have a majority! Waste of a round.

ACTUALLY, it has been pointed out (more than once) that KMR is actually from the SOUTHERN U.S.A. and is currently in Thailand as a missionary. OF course with so many different languages in India - YOU may be hard to understand not only to a foreigner but to others in your own country. The Indian accent is (in my opinion anyway) MUCH HARDER to understand tahn any European or Oriental accent.

Clue #2: Alpha, Both HABS and KMR have a quiz rating, A (which is english representation of Greek letter Alpha)
Yes and YOU, ME, AND BRAINGLE all have "A" in our name

Clue #7: Computer -->Could be HABS

OR almost anyone else.


clue #8: Edible -> KMR(has word "chocolate"), It could have been buu(has an apple) also, but he's already cleared..


I think aragorn may be a good bet for Boss for now, will place my vote for there for now.

Voting for Sonic because I don't know who else to vote for.

It bothers me when I see tax money wasted on signs telling deer where to cross the road.

The boss is required to receive 50% of the vote not just a majority of the vote (if 3 people received 40%, 35%, and 25%, the person with the majority of the votes would not be cleared as they did not get 50% of the votes).

ONLY the players who vote for the Boss win the game.

@sonic, habs and tigerlily: next round i think you guys should buy up some miracles for us. they are generally more helpful than harmful. sonic can easily get a 3 cuil miracle, and the other 2 can get two 2 cuil miracles. i just think we have far too many clues to work with and any more will most probably end up causing more confusion....just my opinion.

and since the rat trap snapped, i guess we can assume that the rat is still in the game.

Buu, I was planning on doing just that but didn't bother to figure out how many points I had beyond what was posted so did not know how much of something I could get.

At this late point in the game, the boss has to be very careful. I believe he is only allowed to fire two players at this point, it will be interesting to see who gets fired. It will tell us a lot.

I'll tally the score, prepare the game module, and we'll get started momentarily.
