Alright. Well, it will be a few hours until I'm home and able to wrap up this game so thank you all for your participation in the meantime. Now it is the waiting game for the results to be posted.

Mr. Bungle kicked off the reunion tour and it was a big celebration.



It was the most successful tour ever by the band. They played in 9 cities and got their biggest crowds ever. However, the biggest crowds ever for Mr. Bungle doesn't mean what you may think....



While successful in that they had more people attend then before, the tour was still a financial disaster and actually put everyone involved in the hole including me. And then when it was over, Mr. Bungle re-dissolved and the 49ers decided to call it a career as well! Quitters!

Meanwhile, Insanolord managed to parlay his Japan and football success into a Super Bowl Halftime gig! I used that connection and the only client left in my rolodex and persuaded him to include Bizz Nizz for old times sake and as a good luck charm. I gotta get those guys more exposure now. Unfortunately, Insanolord bungled up the timing of the show and started performing as the first half of the game was ending...



The resulting mess of the play lead to fans rioting in the arena and across the country...



Insanolord and Bizz Nizz quickly got in their tour bus to flee but were being chased by angry sports fans and police. At high speeds, they tried to do a sharp turn but the bus wobbled and flipped spinning into the dynamite factory that every city has leading to this big boom.



Now I've got the NFL and cities coming to me for damages because Bizz Nizz was my client and it was my contract that led to them being part of this debacle. Fortunately, I make sure to have a large life insurance policy for my clients. I needed a client and so I used that money to help persuade one of the biggest music sensations around to take me on. They'd just won Best New Artist of the Year at the Grammy's and just had a falling out with the current manager. I took advantage of the situation to swoop in and be their new manager. The future looks bright for my new client, Milli Vanilli, and I think I'll be able to make it out of all these financial woes after all.....

To sum up: Mr. Bungle chose the only Safe Word leaving Insanolord to select his own bomb word and fulfill his sign-up prophecy to come in 2nd. He's 0-4 now in the Final Round making him the Buffalo Bills of Safe Words after all.

A bit of an odd game with the bomb word selections. I had ordered them by artist in alphabetical order. If a player just selected from the top four in the alphabetical order then they'd have made it to the Final Four as it was the bottom Five choices that were selected through the first rounds. Then if they had selected the top two of the four remaining choices, they'd have made it to the Final Round. In the end, if one selected the first choice every round then they'd have won the game like Mr. Bungle just did. Why was everyone always focused on the bottom choices? Watch next game as everyone gets paranoid about selecting choices from the top. Just an odd quirk of this game.

As mentioned previously, 3 of the players in the Final Four were also in the Final Four last game. The result is a really close race for first among the current Top 3 leaders of Season 3. Next game is going to be some pretty high stakes for who can finish higher among those three. Unfortunately, we'll never know how that will play out since the Geneva Convention has ruled that what we are doing here is cruel and inhumane torture to Insanolord. Because of him, the International Court of Justice at the Hague has ordered NWR to never play Safe Words again. And so, once again, Insanolord has been an international disgrace for these forums. Oh well. I guess at this point, pretty much everyone else has won a game of Safe Words so there probably wasn't much point in playing it again anyways.

And that is why Safe Words was never again played on the forums. This concludes the history of Safe Words.

I need to look back on the games but you might remember them better off the top of your head having been in those Final Rounds. I'm pretty sure last game you were in the Final Round that you had control of the Bomb Word like you did in this game but has that been the case for every Final Round? Or have there been some where you had to select the last Safe Word available?

GG everyone. Having the theme be 90's music finally allowed me to finally cash in on having a user name that is 90's music group. Definitely a missed opportunity for Adrock. I found the role playing let me avoid making selections based on familiarity or the psychology of the bomb selector. In the last round I was really thinking Insanolord would pick 49ers since that is a sports team and he likes sports (I think). Of course I don't know sports or Insanolord for that matter and as weak as my reasons for selecting were they were purely motivated by the story I was telling. I also was not expecting to be able to go in chronological order or avoid re-picking the same thing for so long, but it all seemed to work out. The pattern Khush noticed with the placement of the bomb in the lower choices is interesting and I am curious if that affected people's selections consciously or subconsciously.

Congrats Mr. Bungle! Can't believe Insanolord is snubbed once again.
Perhaps presumptive, but I hadn't assumed Khush would be into EDM at all. But between this CD and the songs Khush highlighted in the other thread I think he might have a rave cave in his basement.

Also, you can't leave it at that! What music did you think would be my jam?
