I've found this game to be insanely fun (albeit dangerously addictive!) on other forums, so I was hoping some of you might be willing to play it with The Office characters. The below instructions are mostly copied from aquarian1, who managed to explain the rules far more clearly than I ever could:

All of the characters start off with 15 points. TWoPpers can then cast either a (++) vote to give someone 2 points, or a (--) to take away 2 votes. Each TWoPper can only cast his/her votes once a day. That's a calendar day, not 24 hours between votes. So, for example, you can vote at 11:59pm, and again 2 minutes later at 12:01am. You can vote for 3 people at a time. When a character's vote total reaches 0, he/she is eliminated. When half of the field is eliminated, then characters will only be allowed to receive 1 + vote, while still potentially receiving 2 -- votes. This is to ensure that the game doesn't last forever.

Also, you can't vote for one person multiple times in a day (i.e. you can't take away six points from Saffron in just one day, though I'd certainly like to!) You have to add or substract points from three different people.

Please also post the new standings with your vote, in rank order. It makes it easier to do the math and prevents an overkill/waste of vote.

The poster who votes someone dead gets to concoct and describe the method of death. This can be as painless or brutal or speedy or horrendously drawn out as the poster sees fit.

Here's the list of characters I came up with. I didn't bother with characters who only appeared in 1-2 episodes, as its hard to compare them to the characters we've spent so much more time with. If I've failed to include someone, feel free to add him/her before the game really gets going:

Mal - 15
Jayne - 15
Simon - 15
River - 15
Wash - 15
Zoe - 15
Kaylee - 15
Inara - 15
Book - 15
Saffron - 15

Since the list is so short, if you guys want we can also include villains/guest stars of the week/characters from the movie (like Mr. Universe). Just add anyone you'd like! Meanwhile, I'll start the voting:

Simon ++ (My favorite FF character by far. He's wonderfully snarky, loyal, complex, smart...and, oh yeah, also pretty easy on the eyes!)

Inara -- (I just never warmed up to her. She's got a certain air of haughty superiority that really irks)

Mal ++ (Sure, he can be a total ass...but a very intriguing one. I think he's an extremely well-developed, complex anti-hero and I'm fascinated by his interactions with every single other character)

Simon - 17
Mal - 17
Jayne - 15
River - 15
Wash - 15
Zoe - 15
Kaylee - 15
Book - 15
Saffron - 15
Inara - 13

Simon++ my favourite
Mal++ followed closely by
Inara--I don't hate her because I don't strongly dislike anyone on Firefly but I DID dislike the Mal/Inara chemistryfree cliched-UST relationship and I never saw enough of her personality elsewhere to overcome that. Plus I think Morena's the weakest (of a very good) cast.
