    Welcome to new TEH MOLE: the game that tests your wits, skill, knowledge, cunning and that all important ability of deception.

    This game has gone through a lot over the years and we tip our hats to those who have taken up the reigns and hosted it in the past:

    Stridarious
    SecondBeast
    Ewok15
    OBIX1
    Rogue9-Horn

    (Please note, game procedures and rules have changed somewhat, so please read them!)


    Game Procedures

    ~Twelve people are allowed to play and sign-ups will last for one week or until the twelve people roster is filled. If there is an overwhelming number of people who wish to play, the number of people able to play may be increased.

    ~From the roster, the host will randomly pick one player to be ?Teh Mole? and notify them via PM.

    ~After ?Teh Mole? is notified of their status they will begin posting around the boards and leaving hints that they are ?Teh Mole.? But may never come right out and say their identity. Hints can range from the simple to the complicated, "Teh Mole" is more than welcomed to use his or hers imagination when leaving behind clues.

    ~If someone guesses the identity of ?Teh Mole? by PMing the game host then that person automatically wins the game. If guessed incorrectly, said person will be eliminated immediatly. So only guess if you're absolutely sure!

    ~If no one guesses the identity of ?Teh Mole? before the game ends, then the "Teh Mole" will be deemed the winner.

    ~There will be a challenge posted every two days and the players will be given 24hrs to respond to the challenge. Challenges will consist of questions or tasks - ranging from questions relating to the Jedi Council Forums and Star Wars, to random trivia. Some questions/tasks will be helpful to new members of the boards, such as finding and linking helpful threads and where to go to discuss certain things, etc.

    ---Due to the differences in the time of day since there are players from different countries, the challenges will be posted at different times to make it as fair as possible to everyone. Unfortunately, someone will almost always be handicapped by this but there is no way around that. Challenges will be posted about 11 am Pacific time one day and the next challenge will be posted about 10 pm Pacific time two days later.. If I know this ahead of time, I will give you at least 24 hours notice of that happening but there are times when unforseen things happen and I will not know until I am already at work. The times they are posted will alternate back and forth between the two times.

    ~There are points awarded for each challenged which break down like this:
    -First Person or Only Person to correctly answer a challenge: 5pts and immunity
    -Correct answer to a challenge: 3pts
    -Failed attempt at answering a challenge: 1pt
    -Not answering a challenge: 0pts
    Note: If a player fails to attempt 3 challenges they will be eliminated.

    ~After each challenge the "Teh Mole" will pick anyone who doesn't have immunity to be eliminated from the game. The player who answers the challenge first will receive immunity from these eliminations. ?Teh Mole? will PM the game host with who he or she wishes to eliminate. The game host will then announce who the "Teh Mole" eliminated from the game.

    ~Teh-Mole can eliminate his/herself if they should so wish but not until we are down to 5 players(having only two challenges left) to cover the missing three challenges rule and to keep them from eliminating themselves from the begining.

    ~After every 5 challenges, the person with the most points is allowed to make a free guess as to whom the "Teh Mole" is without fear of elimination. The game host will announce who has the most points and when they may make their guess by PMing the game host. The "Teh Mole" may also answer questions to gain points. This means "Teh Mole" will want to answer questions and do tasks to have as many points as possible in order to keep people from having a free guess or even immunity. He/she may also want to eliminate those who have the most points, so winning/>

    Yup, it's back. Finally eh? Just to clarify a few things, there will be no sharing of a game sock this time around... whoever is chosen to be Teh-Mole will keep the identity to themselves and leave little clues around on their own username however they deem fit. The rewards are colors, so if you think you would like to play just copy and paste the list above you and add your name.

    Gangrenous will be your host, so go easy on him ? it?s his first time! If you have any questions don't be shy to ask them. And enjoy!

    Your doing great so far! Just on the list copy the User above and paste into your reply so it has all the names listed or you can put the next empty number next to your name like this:

    1. Onnie
    2. ani-eyes
    3.
    4.
    5.
    6.
    7.
    8.
    9.
    10.
    11.
    12.

    Or

    "Okay I'll play:
    2. ani-eyes"

    It is just less confusing to keep track of to copy the list and add your name in. :)

    It's great to see "Teh Mole" back finally. :D

    Good luck, Gangrenous! [face_good_luck]


    But why are there only three days of color-ship? Isn't the normal periode for a game one week? Isn't three days a bit short? :confused:

    Due to how short the game can be sometimes, and how some people over-used their privilege, we're gonna try three days for the first few games. If things work out I'm willing to extend the time.

    Here's the sign up list so far:

    1. Onnie
    2. ani-eyes
    3. vaderjadesolo
    4. Starwarsfreak444
    5. Crash_Davis
    6.
    7.
    8.
    9.
    10.
    11.
    12.


    Just copy the list, add your name, and post away. Remember you can only play with one username per game, I'm going to IP check/host check/check check every single player, so no funny business. ;)

    But isn't it a sign of how good they were, when they get teh mole fast? :confused:

    Is this a general policy? I just wonder because I haven't heard/seen about shorter game-vip-ship and if people over-used or misused it, then it wouldn't only effect WNU, I think.

    No, no policy. It was simply too long of a VIPship for too short of a game. We're just gonna try the three day VIPship for a bit.

    I'd sign up, but I can't guarantee that I could be online every day, although I'd do my best. Also, would this be through by May 8th? I get to go to Orlando for a week. :cool:

    The first game should be finished by then but I can't be 100% positive about that though.

    OK, I'll sign up, but keep in mind that I'll be gone after May 8th. :)
