**** Suggestion: let us take a few guesses FIRST before healing - this gives us a strategical advantage. Boddy is frozen until we heal. ****
There's already a rule that Mr. Boddy can not strike again until at least ONE person is healed.

I'd rather not have it be "Mr. Boddy can't strike until someone guesses who Mr. Boddy is" - The idea is, I don't want people guessing randomly, "It's the butler because he's a person as seen in the robot picture!"
Because then it's a quick process of elimination. Each person can guess someone else, until Mr. Boddy is revealed.

The idea is - will Mr. Boddy strike every time someone is healed - because in order to do so, they must provide a clue to their MASQ ID.

If the other players help keep people healed up, Mr. Boddy is going to end up providing several clues about their MASQ ID, and potentially unveiling who they are.

I even considered making a rule that you only get ONE guess who Mr. Boddy is (to ensure people are going for a legit guess), and after that can no longer guess BUT can still heal other people.

But since this is the first run of the game, I wanted to see how this would pan out first.

For ease of the game, do see the "Slightly Updated Modified Rules" near the bottom of the original post.

I guess Windows95. The Sentinel is a machine and I'm the only other machine here. The colors represent the Windows logo. The quote is from a song called "1995". ("windows 95, you're long gone but I'm still alive"). Making yourself the first victim was to throw off suspicion.

Eek! I've had the wind (noisily) knocked out of my sails!

Hmm, musketeers? Shot in the dark, but is Bowsette Mr. Boddy? I suspect musketeers alludes to "The Thousand Musketeers" game, and Bowsette is drawn in the anime style.

Oh, I see it says "Everyone else (including the person who is Mr. Boddy, in their regular MASQ ID) can heal one person for 1 health, but they can not heal themselves.".

Bowsette is not Mr. Boddy.

As Mr Boddy, I am not overly fond of bots, either. I shall call Sir Samuel Vimes to bring the hand-cuffs, but in the meantime, have at thee!

**** So we have the Three Musketeers, and now Vimes from.... Disc World? ****

**** This must be hinting either at swords or... fighting for justice. Or maybe, stepping in for the sherrif / cops, taking justice into your own hands? That would narrow my list of suspects to Sasquatch (Marvel) and Buttercup (Powerpuff Girls), but it is still a bit farfetched so Ill hold off on making a formal guess. ****

Shhhh! No official guess was made! That said, updated the original post to add a few more rules! :D

Updated the rules (and made things, I hope more clear) in the original post!
