So our next Wolf of the Week is precis_neumann! Someone I've had the pleasure of being involved in a fair number of games with. I think he had the unfortunate experience of encountering Evil Shark in his first few games so now I often get a meta-vote with the comment that a Shark in a Top Hat is also evil. Coincidentally the Shark with a top hat drawing that inspired this comment was drawn by Apple Snapple, who was the Wolf of the Week prior to me, so that makes a lovely little connection between all three of us.

Anyway, enough of that.... here he is!

Poll
Two truths and one lie; which one is the lie?
- I've never played Werewolf face to face.
- I've never seen Star Wars.
- I've never kissed a guy.

Yay Précis!
Why does the auto correct on my phone make a "é" in your name?
What does your name mean?

Also, from what I gather from your pictures: 40% of your life is in the snow, and 40% of the time you're flying dangerously. Does this reflect the other 60% of your existence?

CURSE YOU APPLE SNAPPLE!

You asked the exact two questions that popped into my head upon seeing précis as this week's (fortnight's) choice.

OK, well my question for Precis relates to one of his micro-badges. I happen to also be a fan of the Foo Fighters (and also have the micro-badge!), so...

What is your favorite Foo Fighters song and album, respectively? (and the song does not have to be one that's included on the album that is listed, of course).

Thanks Redshark! Although I don't know if I'm deserving of this honour as I've done nothing but suck recently.

It'd have to be the game where I shot the last wolf in the face. Hell of a lucky shot, but glory was mine! laugh

The name was taken from a character on Star Ocean 2 (video game on PS1) - played a lot of RPG back in my youth.

I firmly believe in living your life to the fullest (financial restrictions apply ), would rather go out and do something as oppose to sitting at home channel-flipping.

As for the other 60% of my existence? Probably spent in the office funding my holiday plans. whistle

I actually quite enjoy being a villager - it gives me the freedom to post whatever I want to say, no pulling punches! I get all paranoid and try to stay UTR when I've been assigned a Special role, be it Good or Evil.

I suck as Evil, as you know already. laugh

Wait. Shouldn't part of that time be spent as a were-kitty?
Or was that alluding to something else?

Seriously, though - congrats, precis! Good choice on Redshark's part.

Do you have any goals for Werewolf? Anything that you'd like to do that you haven't yet?


Wouldn't mind trying to mod* a game or two - I believe I was talking to Redshark about the possibility of arranging a Fresh meat game with us co-hosting (before my sabbatical from BGG a while back) and I'd like to give that a go, probably after Christmas.

*Inspired by Linguist and his dedication to us all

The Colour and The Shape - Everlong.

Lost my virginity to that song. blush

Yet to see them live, and it's killing me. soblue

They were playing in Manchester a couple of years ago but tickets sold out in a few hours. Sad times.

Pink? Don't really have a favourite colour - I'm just that awesome anything will look good on me. cool

As for your other question, I feel like your Average Joe in WW - I don't really ever do anything fantastic. A typical game would involve me running around like a headless chicken trying not to get lynch and accusing half the village of being Evil. Quite often wrongly so.

You're most welcome (and did you see the week I was coming off of before I was chosen?)

Great choice (and a good reason!).

I love that whole album, though I'm also really fond of the follow-up.

Yeah, they're on the list of groups I'd like to see live, too, but I haven't managed it yet, either.

I liked the zombie shark P11 where you were like, "WELP, I'll be in this corner eatin' my hat." memorable!

Not one of my finest moments. blush

Although it was rather satisfying shooting TD in the face. whistle

We did talk about that. Apologies, it dropped completely off my radar!

Something to think about.

Hey Congrats Precis!!

If you could have one role in a werewolf game, and make all the optimal plays for a stellar performance, but never be allowed to pull that role again, what would it be??

Your evil win percentage is higher than good win percentage. But yeah, that game did NOT go well for us.
