Good call, Pinback! I agree 100%. Draal and Lysander.

Were looking for Thing #4, thus all testing before Vote #5 is invalid (Thing was picked after vote #4, before vote #5; we are searching for the earliest possible Thing because we can eliminate the most players)

Milker = Human
gsdgsd
Draal = Human
Jack Straw
Pinback = Human
Casual Observer = Human
ChainGangGuy
Worm
Lysander = Human
Roody

Everyone else is a suspect.

Ten players. Three are things. Three more rounds before they outnumber humans (6 tests). 7 players to test.

Ok, again, still confused. Didn't ICJ say the Things had picked a new one in the same note where he says Pinback is human? I took that to mean that the new Thing was picked after Pinback was chosen for the test -- so doesn't that make Pinback the only confirmed human?

And, re: picking against Aardvark -- once it was obvious he was going down, wouldn't some of the Things probably vote against him?

Anyway. I have to go out for a while and probably won't return 'til after the test - with trepidation I'll follow Pinback's lead and change my vote to Draal and Lysander for this round.[/b]

I change my vote to Draal and Chaingang Guy! Even though, again, doing two at once is fucking stupid and makes the game almost completely random guesswork at this point. And no, Pinback is not a comfirmed human, because teh Things could have decied to pick Pinback directly after he was confirmed to be human. Because that was the second test, of the day, teh first being Milker. Now new day, so everyone's a suspect. Except me, who is obviously human, because he is taking the time to clear up all the confusion. You idiots. In fact, why don't you stupid fuckers all change your vote from Draal and Lysander to Lysander and Draal so you're at least not wasting the last vote on an obvious human.

ICJ has obviously lost interest in the game, and so has decided unilaterally to ruin it by instituting the two-at-a-time thing, and also not drawing pictures anymore.

Another example of a project started and never finished.

This time, though, he's victimized all of YOU. All of US.
Above all else... We shall go on... And continue!

1. Come on. It was the first Saints game in New Orleans in over a year. Home games mean your team has a chance. They equalled their win total from last year and it's not even fucking October yet.

2. When you guys don't get your act together until 11:00 I have a choice: I can either draw a picture or two or leave it idle and it looks like I have somehow lost interest. Seeing how that happened anyway, well, there you go.

This hurts.

Everyone seems to hate the two-at-a-time rule, so I will make this change:

If you miss three votes in a row you die in the snow. (No, this is not my invention, it's a rule used in a different game.) Milker is the only one who doesn't check the thread regularly and it's not fair to the rest of you to slow the game down.

So.

We'll go back to voting one at a time. For the upcoming test I will add up everyone's votes and take whoever showed up the most. ("But! But!") Yeah I know, sorry. I honestly thought you guys were starting to not enjoy this anymore and wanted to speed it up. I'm still good.


Beginning Draal's test right now.

Oh. And please note that my intent was to have Draal played by Kapt'n Krooz'r from the arcade game Wacko. That will make the next image much more understandable.

Everyone give me their next pick.

If the image above is unclear, hold down your left mouse button to the right of the image and go left with it down.


EDIT: Ah, fuck, the effect I was going for didn't come through and it took me an hour to get it that far. Balls.

It says "HUMAN" in the upper right of the image, sort of in light letters -- I took that to be the answer.

I vote Jack Straw.
