RULES:



1) In this game the majority rules in the firing of employees
2) You MUST vote for yourself every round.
3) By the end of the round, you are to send me a PM with your vote for who is the boss.
4) The person who receives the most votes will be mod fired.
5) You MAY NOT vote for someone simply because you do not like them.
6) The Rat must still hack the network and is to inform me if anyone violated the self vote rule.(And prove it by sending me a screen shot) If someone has - he too shall be terminated.
7) If the Boss receives the majority of the votes, the employees will be informed and they can vote for said individual the following round.

Contrary to what Har posted in Round 0, this game (especially given point 7) is QUITE WINNABLE by the employees and does not really differ from the regualar format other than the boss cannot fire anyone on his/her own.
**Which again mirrors real life (boss having little power) as there are labour laws that dictate the circumstances under which someone can be fired. ... I ended up with over 5G a few years ago because a manager decided to violate the law and the company was sued for wrongful dismissal. They were also ordered to rehire me at my current wage, but I declined.

lol thanks guys - you can actually discuss your real votes (only way to win is to get others on board) but you must vote on the voting page for yourself.

I voted for kitty-cat because she commented on the boss's attributes. That seems a little suspicious to me.

Wait, wait, wait, there is no clearing in this game. If you get a majority on someone, they get fired. Also, I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic or not, Sara, but that's the only way we can actually find the boss.

Pretty sure I am the boss - voting myself.

Kitty's a good first round shot, memo sounds like her and the psych answer sounds like something from the first page of a first-person novel.

Though there is plenty of time left , do not forget to send me a PM with who you think the boss really is.

If you do not send a PM, it will be considered to be a non-vote and you will be mod-fired. If there is a non-voting mod fire, the majority vote getter is safe for the round as there will only be one firing per round.

Har, not sure why you are having so much trouble with the rules. No one else seems to be having a problem understanding the game. As with the regular game, nothing happens if the rat fails to hack the system (even under the regular rules all that happens is he is on the firing list).

There will not be any inactives, so there will be one firing per round as stated in the rules,

If you are the boss you can win the same way as you do in the regular game, but not getting caught.

If you nail the boss in the first (or subsequent rounds) I will tell you then you all vote the boss the next round and get your check-mark in the win column.

It's not rocket science ...

And how am I being tyrannical? The rules are not that different from the regular ones other than you are voting through me instead of the system.

Fleetie i don't see typing that netiher do i slam. Jayo nah.
Koin is a maybe
Sara is a defintie suspect it sorta of sounds like the last games prompts
Kitty- Another suspect.
Dp- Something more creative than calling 911._ maybe
Kmr- I don' think so.

I don't know kitty very well, but I was thinking maybe her... I don't know why but it just seems like it.

I agree that it does sound a lot like the last prompts with Sara... maybe if we get the majority for kitty this round.. Sara next round if we are still all on the same page?

Har would have grabbed the hot 18 year old in his house...

Slamm?... maybe? probably not...

Jayo no lol...

DP is kind of a maybe

Kmr is another person I don't know very well so I can't say much about..

So what I am trying to say with all fo this is that I think that my top 2 suspects are Sara and Kitty...

Don't be shy everyone! What do you think?!?!? (does not apply to har.. nobody cares what you think)

Honestly, what would a phone do? I'm pretty sure if your house is on fire... someone will notice and there is no need for a phone call.

Well, if you posted that, it would give it away! It does sound kinda similar, but since she was boss last time I think it would be smart to vote for the more likely subject, kitty, and then go for Sara next round if it isn't kitty. Well, theres no vote change for me anyways! Already locked it in...

I guess I agree, nothing says you can't be boss twice in a row does it? Unlikely? I suppose.

I already sent the PM to HABS voting for kitty, let's not get ahead of ourselves too much. We will see what round 2 brings us... and then we will decide upon who to vote.

Sara's odds of being boss twice in a row are 1 in 100 (assuming both are 10 player games). however thats the same probability as any other combination of the same people in 2 games.

Yeah I really doubt I would be calling 911, the 2 numbers we use here are 112 & 999 for emergency services.


I'll pm Habs my choice now, and we will see who ended up getting the majority of the pm votes

WELCOME TO ROUND 2 -

I didn't submit a memo so I will have the Boss PM me a message for you and as I cannot fire someone until after the round has started, I have instructed the Boss to fire KITTY, she received 5 or the 7 votes that were cast. As the Boss and Rat do not vote (JUST LIKE THE REAL GAME Har), I should have received 8 PMs, Kitty must have decided it was a moot point as she did not cast a vote. She would have been mod fired anyway.

Saragrace and Max received the other two votes.


I have spoken to the Boss and with the combination of our schedules, I will try to start the round about 4pm EDT. Sorry about the hold-up.

Would you guy prefer I do what RHY does and have a set time the rounds start? He always starts the rounds at 7 (whether AM or PM) which ever is the nearest time to when he receives the memo.

Yeah, I was sort of thinking that myself. I really like that Rhy does it. 5 o'clock Eastern seems like a good time to me. IT is late enough here that most people will be home from work or school (or will be shrotly fot hose in Mountain or Pacific) and early enough in England that most of you will still be awake....

I will start the round as close to 5 as I am able. (Won't be more than 15 minutes on either side).

I am also a bit confused by the rules. In this case there is no clearing it is just fire. I am worried then if you weren't the boss then you are now just been fired out of the game.

Yeah, it's more like WWG - no clearing, it's totally based on figuring out the boss from the memo/psych. It is nice to have some warning, though, before the firing.

Yes, the firings work more like WWG then WTB.
I cannot give any warning as I don't know who is going to be fired until I tabulate the votes stated in the PMs.
You guys should still compile voting lists as you would normally. That way you have a way of knowing who is in the line of fire.
