...lose, but not quite! Incorrect!

And that, I'm afraid, concludes our bonus time, as well as our game, which means....

Verasaille and her accomplice, Madame Professor have gotten away with Murder!!

I want to take a moment to thank everyone who participated for playing. I was really excited to bring this game to E after first playing it at a gaming convention last fall. You guys were super awesome for letting me test my online adaption for the game on you, and I hope you had as much fun playing as I did running it.

I'll run more rounds in the spring, probably mid-late March after a break, which I think many of us would appreciate. Those of you who want to be on my first PMs interest list, just let me know.

Thanks for running it Guy!  Congrats Verasaille!

But, um...

Isn't anyone going to say what the murder weapon and evidence actually was?  If it's Trophy and Bank Note like I suggested I'm going to be bummed  :P

Folding chair and dictionary. Honestly you guys were so close I was ready to concede more than once. I just picked what to me was the oddest combination.

Great game all!! I had a blast!

Oh and definitely up for more games!

Oh, jeez, I suggested Folding Chair and Dictionary even over Trophy and Bank Note!

*is still bummed*  :P

Good choices though.  You had so many blunt objects and written pieces of evidence it was a bit of a crapshoot guessing through them all.

Whoops, I forgot to tell you, it was folding chair and dictionary! Sniped by Vera.

Honestly, this round was a great example of why wrong guesses are't a waste and why waiting for more information isn't always the best option. There were quite a few people that had it figured out, but didn't want to 'waste' a vote. A couple of votes would have nailed it, but waiting for more intel and some very unlucky card draws for Perse ended up swinging the game.

Wow.  Congrats, Vera and MP!  You sneaky sneaks have gotten away with it, this time!

I figured it was the Folding Chair, but then "Blank" and "Nothing" made absolutely no sense in the context of a Dictionary (I figured Persephone was trying to say nothing = zero = numbers).

Just for fun, if you had been caught, who did you guys think the witness was?

This was really awesome, folks. Looking forward to another run whenever you're able, Guy! ;D

Way to go MP and Versaille! I'd have never guessed. xD

Leave it to me to run the round where the murderer wins... >.<

Some of those clue draws were FUCKING BALLS! Like, ridiculous... I was really frustrated because I could hardly find anything that pointed to "Dictionary". I thought that if enough people guessed "Numbers" incorrectly, then other people would start thinking "Maybe that's really not right."... But it didn't work out that way.

Mmm...I think, Persephone, I would have used Classroom as the clue to point to the Dictionary, and then Assembly for the Folding Chair.

I actually got the Folding Chair pretty early on, between Cafeteria, Action, and Assembly, so kudos to that; but for the life of me I couldn't make heads or tails of your Blank and Nothing clues.

Blank and Nothing were just that. Nothing else from the choices seemed to fit, so I was just like "Fuck this shit... I have no idea what to do here."

You did your best Persephone with what you got. I had a great time and thought I was doomed more than once.

That is why, Yugi, I picked the most unlikely set of murder weapon and clue. I had no idea what kind of clues the FS would have.

But even then if classroom were to be picked instead of cafeteria we might have picked up on the dictionary part.

I have to admit, all these post-game comments are making me sad to wrap goings up, but I think a break is still ultimately a good idea. Those of you that still have a gaming bug, I know Perse is trying to get a round of Salem going, the interest is currently stickied.

Anyway, it was really great playing with you guys.
