The Assassins' Circle, Kill Thread 3

Yesterday's dead:

  1. Sax (offed by Danielle)
  2. Danielle (Matt)
  3. Dusty Baker (John G)
  4. John G (Mr Customer)
  5. Mr Customer (Quad)
  6. Wicks (Karina)
  7. UBragg (missed deadline)

And although he broke no rules - he just arbitraged the absence of one - Dr. Geek has asked to be removed from the Circle. His wishes have been honored.

Speaking of which, the need for two new rules emerged from the last round:

  1. No deleting comments, at least for remaining competitors. We can see who deleted their own comments so it will do you no good, but it makes the game more tedious to administer.
  2. "The Dr. Geek Rule" - No decoy posts (i.e., posting under similar username to draw out your Stalker). Your infamy will indeed live on, Dr. G.

Plus, three rule clarifications:

  1. The Initiator cannot shield himself with his kill comment.
  2. As mentioned earlier, the game ends when there are 2 competitors remaining, and the one with the most kills wins. However, if all but 1 competitor is eliminated in the last round, that last competitor wins.
  3. Furthermore, if ALL competitors are eliminated in the last round, whoever was eliminated last in the round wins.

The original rules post has been updated with the above.

Now, with no further ado, let's get to earmarking the next batch of body bags!:

Initiators! Mount up.

Neeebs said...

You all are walking on haunted grounds.

Paul said...

Well time to walk out into the open and be prepared to be taken to blue heaven.

karina said...

Sorry...

Eric Karros said...

Karina, be sure to send Paul a link to photos of hot girls now.

Paul said...

not the five-point-palm-exploding-heart technique!

Did I at least die with dignity Kiddo?

Neeebs said...

Someone has to cover Karina right now. Any takers?????????

Mr. Customer said...

Neeebs,

I would, but I have no corporeal form, thanks to Quad.

Dusty Baker said...

I'll cover her with my ghostly form if she'll send me pics of hot chicks and cold beer.

Eric Karros said...

Maybe if enough of us formless ghosts gather around Karina, her Stalker won't realize she is a sitting out in the open.

Paul said...

you guys are misisng the party at the haunted house. The cold beer is a bit watered down, if feels like it goes right through you.

Dusto_Magnifico said...

peeking out...

Mr. Customer said...

I must have some sort of deficiency that allows me to find this game compelling even after I have been eliminated.

Eric Karros said...

Being dead is underrated. It's so nice to be able to comment out in the open. Livingfolk like rbnlaw have to comment over in the other thread. Chumps.

Anyhow, I'm heading out to that pottery class that Demi Moore goes to (don't tell Swayze). She'll never know the difference.

Eric Karros said...

Sorry that was sorta perverted.

Paul said...

Karina is safe and is my sentimental favorite.

You always want to be taken out by the best.

Rnblaw is a close second just becauase i want to see him finish with 5 and 5/8kills.

Mr. Customer said...

EK,

I love the fact that you still feel the need to add the qualifier for inappropriate behavior on the site that brought you "Abes v. Babes".

And I mean that in the best possible way.

Dusty Baker said...

I thought that being killed would allow me to sleep, stop obsessing over this game, get back to work, and find some enjoyment in life. Regrettably, I'm still mesmerized by it.

Eric Karros said...

Oh man, Mr C. An Abes vs Babes reference! I will never outrun my past.

drewdez said...

I think Dusto_Magnifico is toast, but my fingers are crossed that Keven C isn't paying attention.

Neeebs said...

How about the Dodgers..........

Keven C said...

With last dying breath, I fire a shot...

drewdez said...

Brutal.

Massacre in the southwest quadrant today.

Dusto_Magnifico said...

GURGLE...

GASP...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm still in this

Matt said...

And now you're not...

Orel said...

et tu

Fred's Brim said...

favor returned, Orel

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

(overly dramatized death scene)

Fred's Brim said...

that didnt help you much did it

shit shit shit

Matt said...

Carnage! At least I got two kills. Is there an assasins corner in heaven?

Orel said...

I think it did!

My heart was totally racing after that kill. This is more involving than I thought!

Mr. Customer said...

Brutal.

Fred's Brim said...

did it? I think Dusto was flushed out earlier

Matt said...

@Orel, isn't it exciting? I'm a little worried about how much I enjoyed it...

Eric Karros said...

@Matt - In heaven, Assasins' Corner is the name of a neighborhood bar where you buy a drink for the folks you killed.

What'll it be, J Steve?

Paul said...

See what happens when the Dodgers offense becomes boring to watch. We all start shooting each other!!!

We are true Dodger fans.

Mr. Customer said...

@Paul,

It's the lord of the flies played out by proxy.

Paul said...

The Conch Shell aka Manny's hand is broke and Lasorda has fallen off the cliff.

Chaos everywhere. Savages linger.

Neeebs said...

This is getting confusing.

EK, we need an update!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Right now is like the scene in a war movie where there has been carnage, and the main character is walking along dazed with smoke swirling around, wounded people moaning, he's deafened by the noise and by the tragedy surrounding him...

Eric Karros said...

I have updated my scoring tabulator and ooh, it is bloody.

Dead so far (in no particular order)
1. Keven C
2. Paul
3. drewdez
4. Dusto Magnifico
5. Matt
6. MLASF

Please check my work.

Orel said...

MENDOZAAAAA!

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

*Jumps out of his fox hole with a San Diego Friar costume on, daring QuadSevens to take a shot*

Lauro said...

?

QuadSevens said...

Kamikaze!!!

rbnlaw said...

Bang, I'm in

QuadSevens said...

Boooooo!

rbnlaw said...

Woo Hoo!!!
Who's next?

rbnlaw said...

Q7:
You are indeed a formidable opponent. I owe you a drink at the assassins' bar.

rbnlaw said...

In all honesty, I was taking a blind shot as I knew the hour was approaching. I was sure there would be cover.

Did you get GLG, or do I need to take him out tomorrow?

Lauro said...

GLG, I gave you cover. YOU OWE ME!

QuadSevens said...

GLG was covered by Lauro. He popped out a little too early for me to take my shot. But apparently I should have gone for it anyways.

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

@Lauro - I will take that into consideration when I have you in my scope next time

rbnlaw said...

Lauro will pay, as will the Canadian's spectacles.

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

Is the time cut off BEFORE 3:00 meaning your post has to be 2:59 or earlier or can you post at 3:00 as long as you get in before 3:01?

Eric Karros said...

I'm disappointed Danielle didn't show. The assassin industry needs as many women as it can get.

Bodycount tally coming soon...

rbnlaw said...

From what we've seen 3:00 is golden; 3:01, not so much.
In other words, LOOK OUT FOR THE CRAZEE EYE KILLAH!

Larry, are you my Caucasian?

Eric Karros said...

3:00 you're ok, 3:01 you're dead.

J. Steve said...

@EK:
If you're buying a drink in the assassin's bar, I'm not going to be picky.

QuadSevens said...

I kinda wish these post times had seconds on them. I'm curious how many more seconds I needed to wait before being picked off. Tomorrow's round should be fun to watch as a ghost.

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

Cool, thanks EK

QuadSevens said...

Does the Assassin's Bar have a closed circuit television for us to watch the carnage going on outside?

Eric Karros said...

Ah, I forgot Danielle was killed off yesterday.

Here's who was killed off today:
1. Keven C (by Paul)
2. Paul (by karina)
3. Dusto Magnifico (by drewdez)
4. drewdez (by then-already-dead Keven C)
5. MLASF (by Matt)
6. Matt (by SoSG Orel)
7. QuadSevens (by rbnlaw)
8. GK Larsen (no-show)

Eric Karros said...

The Assassins' Circle Neighborhood Bar has got 32 flatscreen TV's with your favorite NFL, MLB, NBA, and NHL games, as well as coverage of bloggers offing each other out.

Dr. Geek, where's my drink?

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

So its down to 6?

Dusty Baker said...

Damn, EK, I was on my way to that bar until you told me it had NHL on.

Dusty Baker said...

So much death and destruction. Why, why??!! Who'll save the children?

karina said...

@Paul of course i killed you with the five point palm technique. I didn't tell you at the moment because i didn't want you to suffer in advance. I could kill you but i wouldn't hurt you. Does it make any sense?

I wanna thank you for the words of encouragement.

karina said...

A lot of thanks to Mr. Customer, Paul, Neebs, Dusty Baker and Eric Karros who wanted to cover me in if they could.

karina said...

I just realized my next target is Orel. That's a very tough decision to make.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Let the record show I took the blows, and did it my way.

Dusty Baker said...

Karina said:

"I didn't tell you at the moment because i didn't want you to suffer in advance."

That cracked me up, Karina. It's like very polite smack talk. Can't wait for you to take out Orel tomorrow and talk some smack to him afterward.

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASF

Noted and filed.

Orel said...

@Karina "I just realized my next target is Orel. That's a very tough decision to make."

Search your feelings, Karina. You can't do this. I feel the conflict within you. Let go of your hate.

Orel said...

Although my next target is FB. Oh my.

Dusty Baker said...

Will Fred's Brim be the Brim Reaper tomorrow?

Eric Karros said...

Karina said:

"I could kill you but i wouldn't hurt you."

And while you're trying to figure out what that means, she kills you. And it hurts.

Dr. Geek said...

"Eric Karros said...

Dr. Geek, where's my drink?"


Bartender, a drink to go with this man's crazy hair.

Dusty Baker said...

Heh, maybe EK was trying to cadge a drink from "Dr Geek" instead of Dr. Geek.

karina said...

@Orel you're using Jedi tricks on me! will it work? will i realize there aren't the droids i'm looking for?

Dusty Baker said...

@ Karina

Or IS he using Jedi mind tricks on you?
