The Catastrophically Crazily Chaotic (and Confusing) Casino (#3)
Thanks for the name, 4demo.

Welcome, The Braingle Times players.

The Braingle Casino has erupted in chaos!

Roles:
Casino Manager (Boss) The Casino Manager is in charge of the casino and is the source of the cheating and corruption that has been occurring. His/Her job is to kick the troublemakers (and those catching on to him/her) out of the casino.

Head Dealer (Rat) The Head Dealer is in charge of spying on all of the gamblers and hacking into the network to discover the voting information.

Casino Security (Boss/Moderator) At most one time, the Casino Manager may contact the Casino security offices and ask for a gambler to be IMMEDIATELY kicked out. Gamblers will be notified after action has been taken. Police protection still applies. Again, this may only happen once. Further instructions will follow.


Gamblers (Players) The Gamblers are the ones in the casino, attempting to overthrow the corrupt Casino Manager, without getting kicked out of the casino. Luckily, they have some help among them.

Psychic (Psych) The psychic, one of the gamblers, is in charge of asking the Casino Manager questions about him/herself and habits. The psychic is picked based on an application process. Once the psychic is kicked out, one more question will be asked. In the case that no one wants to be the psychic, the moderator will randomly choose a player to act as the psychic. The moderator will ask the questions, and when that random gambler is kicked out, the questions will stop. Further instructions will follow.

Police Officer (Doctor) Among the gamblers is a police officer. The role of this gambler is to choose one gambler to protect each round from being kicked out of the casino. The officer's protection starts at the voting deadline, and lasts through the voting of the following round. The officer is thoughtful, and may choose someone other than him/herself, and may not pick the same gambler more that TWICE. The officer must pick in the interest of the group and the situation, not based on personal friendships or alliances. The person being protected must have posted twice in the current round. If the police officer is kicked out, the gamblers will be notified. If the player protected was saved from being kicked out, the gamblers will be notified.Further instructions will follow.


Enjoy the:

You still haven't explained the part about applications being submitted before you made that post. I'd like to know the reasoning behind that statement.

I meant it more as a joke, actually. Two games of being Psyhic is enough for me. I'd much rather tedger be the Psych, since that'd mean he's not the Manager or Dealer (as usual).

I have a question for the moderator (aka Casino security): What measures have been taken or will be taken to ensure that tedger is not the Casino Manager or Head Dealer?

Why not? Isn't symbolic speech protected by the precedents of... Texas v. Johnson, and Tinker v. Des Moines*?

*Note: Okay, so Texas v. Johnson was about flag burning, and Tinker v. Des Moines was about punishing political protest in public schools, but, um, the precedent can be... indirectly implied through... extreme judical activism? (Matt, be quiet. I know I have horrible logic.)

That's not funny! Matt doesn't give you enough time to post the Round 1 question (well, he didn't last game, which caused... problems), and he doesn't let you ask questions like "Is your username 'tedger'?" (which is admittedly prohibited by WTB rules, but I was being sarcastic... )

Haha... nice question. But yay... I clicked WTB, and then I didn't see a green checkmark in the signups, so I was wondering whether I'd clicked TWG by accident, until I decided to scroll down a bit more...

By 'invites', I mean talkbox invite. You only receive a talkbox invite if you have a special role. If you do not receive a talkbox invite, you are a normal player.
