"Who's the Boss" is a social game that involves discussion, deception, detection, and deduction. The object of the game is to eliminate the Boss before he or she eliminates the rest of the players.
OverviewIn the beginning, the Boss (whose identity is secret) will issue a memo to all the employees letting them know that downsizing has begun. The players may then discuss who they think the Boss is. Within 24 hours, the employees will vote. If the Boss receives the majority of the votes, then the Boss is fired and the players win. Otherwise, the Boss may fire some of the employees based on certain criteria (explained later). This ends the round. Each round will begin with an official memo from the Boss, and the Psychiatrist's Q/A.
VotingIn each round of the game (about 24 hours), the employees (including the Psychiatrist) will cast votes for who they think is the Boss. The Boss and the Rat do not vote. The voting deadline will be clearly indicated. If you do not vote by the deadline, you will be instantly fired due to poor work performance. You may change your vote at any time up to the deadline. Votes do not need to be stated publicly in the game. Votes must be sent to the game narrator during the round via Private Message. Players may publicly lie about votes they cast, have cast, and will cast.
LemmingsWhoever gets a majority of the votes is called the Candidate. In the case of a tie, there may be multiple Candidates. Because of Executive Privilege, the Boss is always able to slip out of a tie, leaving the other Candidate with a majority of the votes. If the Candidate is not The Boss, then everyone who voted for the Candidate is called a Lemming. The Boss wants people who think for themselves. Therefore, all lemmings will be placed on the firing list.
Firing ListThe Boss is only allowed to fire people who are on the Firing List. The Firing List contains the following people: 1. Lemmings 2. The Rat (If the rat forgets to hack the network, or if the Boss has received 25% or more of the votes) 3. Anyone who does not send in a vote that day 4. Anyone that the narrator adds to the list for rule infraction or disorderly conduct.
The Boss will be allowed to fire a variable number of employees from the list. The game takes into consideration the round, the number of players left, and the number of people already fired that round due to non-voting.
If you voted for The Boss, you cannot be put on the Firing List.
Note: Not voting two days in a row makes you a mandatory firing.
FiringsFiring the Boss: The Boss must receive more than 50% of the votes to be fired. The players who voted for the Boss in that round will be declared winners of the game.
The Boss Fires the Rat: If the Rat fails to protect the Boss, then the Rat may be fired. If the Boss receives 25% of the votes in a given round, the Rat will be listed on the firing list (by username) along with everyone else. The Boss is not required to fire the Rat in either of these cases. In the final round of the game, the Rat is safe from firing.
The Boss Fires the Employees: In any round in which the Boss is not fired, the Boss will be given a list of employees that are eligible for firing. The Boss may fire someone from this list (explained above). The Boss is allowed to fire at most, a set number of employees. The Boss is not obligated to fire anyone.
Fired players will be asked to leave the company immediately and will no longer be allowed to participate in the game.
WinningBoss Wins the Game: This happens when there is only one employee left who hasn't already been fired. At this point the Boss is able to fire the remaining employee without any worry.
Boss and Rat Win the Game: This happens when the rat and one employee are left. At this point the Boss is able to fire the remaining employee without any worry. The Rat and the Boss then congratulate themselves on a job well done.
Employees Win the Game: This happens when the Boss receives at least 50% of the votes. All employees who voted for the Boss that round are declared the winners of the game.
