Welcome to Round 5!!

Take all sorrow out of life and you take away all richness, and depth, and tenderness. The capacity of sorrow belongs to our grandeur. It is the furnace that melts hearts together in love. In loving memory of my dear friend Guy - take care Goobs . .

Hmm...I'd rather go to a picnic than grilling. I can't stand smoke what so ever. Stupid asthma. My vote stays on froggy for now.

Intersting the boss chose not to fire anyone...
Getting nervous? Not confident enough in his abilities?

I would rather grill then eat inside. While I enjoy the outdoors when the weather co-operates, as I said, it gets very humid here so I tend to spend most of my time in the comfort of air-conditioning, unless we are on the water.
Being a pasty red-head the sun and I don't really get along anyway. An hour outside (wearing SPF 60) can mean a week or more of painful red skin that then flakes and peels rather than fade...

I am sticking with my LR vote.

Hmm...Boss didn't really answer the question.

As for me, I love how grilled food tastes and how much healthier it is for you, but I find it too hot to actually be the one doing the grilling. I do enjoy picnics as long as it is not taking place during the hottest time of the year when temps are in the high 90's or triple digits which we get a lot of here. As Habs, I much prefer to stay indoors during the heat.

I also find it interesting that the Boss chose not to fire anyone. This could be that we are close to getting the Boss or that the Boss is trying to lull us into a ploy of some kind. Since the votes last round were split, we are seeing nothing from that round.

Even though I still have a little feeling in my gut that Habs is the Boss, I am also going to stick with LR for now. My vote is for LR


SMILE and people will wonder what you are up to!

All the picnics I've been on are outside. I don't mind the hat as much as I usually do, but I sunburn easily. Just being at the beach for an hour yesterday, I got sunburn, even though I put sunblock/sunscreen on. Probably because of the long winter we had in Illinois, I like heat a little better then usually this year.

Aside from the fact that if everyone voted as they said thy would, I was cleared, the clues don't fit me in the least. There is nothing that resembles me at all.
I am not saying this to distance myself, just wondering what you think fits me?

A Canadian band? So what - Are all Beatles fans British? or all CCR fans American?

Being left behind? My parents actually like me! And wouldn't try to ditch me. One of my sibs? Maybe! But definitely not me, I'm the good kid!

IN reality, if a visitation centre is the same thing as a "rest stop", we would never stop at one of those places. If there was no service centre on the HWY, we would pull off and go eat at a restaurant and use the washrooms there. No one in my family would use those "rest stations". I still wouldn't use them.

Nope, not me and no one has been able to suggest what clue fits me ..... ?

Same goes for me and yet you're still willing to waste two rounds besides that. Honestly, watching a model show? Never in my life. I've already told you lot I dislike reality TV, I've never gone on many vacations (certainly none with a "visitation center"), and that I'm not a fan, nor have I ever listened to the Barenaked Ladies. I guess you think I'm lying but really, find where, on this site outside of the game, any of this has ever held true. It hasn't. Boss isnt even trying to frame me and you lot still think it's me.

And on that note, I plan to look through a few games to get a feel for our players here. You may not know me, but look through a few of my games when I was boss, and others when I was an employee simply not wanting to get cleared, and perhaps you'll change your minds. [Well, except boss/rat, who I expect is voting for me.] (Update: Hmmm. Anyone remember that handy wiki with a good collection of Werewolf and Boss games [I think it had boss, at least]. If not, I might have to do some digging... )

I see that Scrubs didn't want to vote for Froggy last round for some reason [sorry, I still don't get it], and that Froggy this round is playing into the boss' hand by continuing to vote for me for very little reason. Also, the continued attempts at undermining HABS' earlier clear seems like a bossy move intended to create another suspicious target . Thus, for all intended purposes, I'm going to vote for Froggy. Unfortunately, an employee, HABS, may not help the vote and if Scrub is in fact Froggy's rat, then clearly neither will he. But for now, I will try my best effort to fire the boss.

Also, did I not last round say that the boss wouldn't fire anyone? Maybe I didn't, but I was certainly thinking of such a turn of events happening. I also hoped we'd not be trying to clear the same player again. Neither takes a rocket scientist to predict. Of course the boss doesn't want to clear anyone in the two almost-majorities, so what would firing help with? Besides, as has been said before, boss still needs me to be there to be suspicious. This holds true to what's going on.

I'll just be dumping old games in which at least one of our current players have had a nefarious role. I will not have looked through them, so I do not know how useful any of them will be, but they might help. I don't believe this is cheating, as this method of scouring outside of the game has been done before. [If there was somewhere on this site that backed up my some of my personal claims I'd post it. ]

Games where Froggy was boss: Game 3016
Games where Froggy was rat:
Game 3058

Games where Days was boss: Game 2696
Games where Days was rat: Game 2737

Games where LR was boss :
Game 2261 [Finally. I was beginning to think I had just imagined playing as boss.]
Games where LR was rat:
Game 2595

Games where HABS was boss: Game 2928
Game where HABS was rat:
Game 2979
Game 2969

Games where Scrub was boss: Game 2847
Games where Scrub was rat: Game 2844

Actually,that is a great game to show where I confuse things and make claims that seem to condtridict the psych answer but when it comes down to it, EVERYTHING I said was true.
It also illustrate the danger of fixting on the rat. I was convinced HP was my rat and kept him in the game. Ha d I fired him when I had the chance, I may have who.

^^^ sorry for the typos but on my tab and posting is sometimes difficult when it gets temperamental. Editing is a nightmare.
Not sure if I will be back tonight. It is Game 5 nd my team is down 3 games to 1. Starts at 8 (EDT). It will be over by 11 if there is no OT.

so this clue fits me. I won't deny it. But this is the first one.
I don't like reality TV. I like sports - they are my reality TV.
I only know one song from the BNL, but I already said that.
I was raised in TX, and there is nothing cold there during the summer.

As usual, I don't understand what LR is saying:

Also, did I not last round say that the boss wouldn't fire anyone? Maybe I didn't, but I was certainly thinking of such a turn of events happening. I also hoped we'd not be trying to clear the same player again. Neither takes a rocket scientist to predict.

This holds true to what's going on.


Why is it obvious that the boss would not fire anyone? Will they do it again? I am voting LR this round. That will take care of a 2-2 split.

While I may not always fire the maximum number of employees I am allowed, I do not understand the point of not firing anyone. I play to win. The boss cannot win unless he fires everyone. The later in the game it gets, the harder it is to figure out which players to fire in order to clear the fewest players possible.
If the boss did not want to clear anyone this round, what will be any different tnext round? Or the round after that?

I suppose the games I pulled up aren't being used. I looked through them and while it certainly doesn't give me a reason to think Froggy's not boss, it doesn't exactly serve as a eureka moment either. I don't suppose anyone saw the way I play boss (though not always, I suppose) and how I play employee (just as paranoid as now). But such is life. [I wish we still had that database. Digging them up was very tedious.] I don't suppose Froggy, Days, or Scrub want to link to some other games where they were boss, no?

Firing no one may not have been the best move, but it hardly hurt the boss. No matter how late it gets, it's not as though you guys were on the boss' trail. They certainly could allow for a nill round. It just annoys me because I expected the boss to not risk firing anyone. Not risking giving us any new leads. And here we are again - chasing tails. It may not be in the boss' favour, but in case we get any sort of insight from it, the boss may not chance it. Especially if we were to get two clues instead of a neat and nice one. [Though, admittedly, a surefire clear would be much easier to get clues from as the way it was, mass confusion would ensue.]

froggygg - LR
HABS2933 - LR
scrub88 - LR

Days - Froggy
LogicalRoger - Froggy

Anyways. This may be the closest you'll get to clearing me. If you play to win, truly, then you might want to convince Days to vote along with you guys for an absolute clear. [There's been a strange lack of persuasion. As though we're all just waiting for the next round to win. That a vote or two out of step is just lovely. Oh sweet complacency.] Otherwise, that distant tail will be forever on the horizon.

Thanks Days.

I was boss in games:

2652
2658
2680
2928
and apparently in game
2933 which according to that Database lasted 0 rounds.

There don't seem to be links to the games on there. Is there somewhere else I have to go to do that?

To get the links to the games just copy the url for any game and replace the id number with the game number you want.

Yours should look like this, HABS:

Game 2652
Game 2658
Game 2680
Game 2928

All the games where I was boss when the game finished:

Game 1006
Game 2102
Game 2261

Thanks Days, that's the kind of database I was looking for. Glad to see Talanpoe took the trouble.

LR - I know how to create a link. I am not an idiot.. I, found the list of games (thanks to Days) but no where on there that I could see, did I find a way to actually look at those games.

Keep in mind, I am BLIND (not a secret) so while it may seem obvious to you there is a hyperlink attached to it somewhere on the site, it is not as obvious to me.

But thank you for linking them.
