I had a lot of fun in this game! Thanks again to everyone who helped me; I took inspiration from Liar Game and realised teamwork and diplomacy are really an important part of this. Partly because I can't plan like billy can... But I needed help every step of the way. And thanks for hosting, Bass, this was one of the most unique, fun things I've played in Circus (and I love your game-within-a-game gimmicks). ^_^
ETA: lol remembering some moments from this... the scariest was definitely when shade had gone early in the second task, so we couldn't know if my answers were right (I sent mine in at the start very recklessly and got 8/10, which gave us a good start, then billy used his first attempt in a Mastermind-like attempt to work out which of mine were wrong, and shade was meant to use his first attempt to make sure we could get 10/10)... I was running around swapping answers with people as mine was probably the most obvious and I wanted to confirm we were right. Eventually I decided to be brave and sent in my second attempt, which got me 10/10 and the advantage (which was very important in the next task, as we used it to secure the crucial extra bullet).
Also, third task I was positive billy and I needed each other's items, as I guessed it was either going to break our alliance or challenge it. I still wanted to ally though, recognising keeping billy around was to my advantage, so it was good that billy devised his survival plan. Funny moment: we solved the chain very fast (and by we, I mean billy saw the pattern first haha), and knowing aska needed my item and that we needed to bait him into stealing it from me while I guarded. I admired Agape's strategy and boldness in this task, although he simply could not compete with a very solid alliance of four.
Most useful skill in this game for me: my memory. I amassed like six or seven answers in the scavenger hunt very quickly because I happen to have read all of Trou, and it helped in the survey too. Second useful skill: forum search tool for the same reasons >_>
