It was a dark and stormy night when the abductions happened. 13 of the most famous GAFia players woke up aboard the splendid GAFIA Heart of Darkness Mark I. They did not remember how they had gotten on board this strange and unpleasant vehicle, but they saw presently that it was a space ship. Earth was a tiny blue dot visible from a tiny round window, the only window of their current whereabouts, which is a spacious cubical room, of equal length in every side. There was no visible exits. The only decoration in the room was a large, bolded text on a piece of white paper.
”REMEMBER, YOU ARE HERE FOREVER"
Their host, An Alien Spider, had just appeared on large monitor opposite the window to greet the guests.
"Welcome to the first inaugural GAFIA Trans-Universal Special Cruise aboard the Heart of Darkness Mark I," the monster was saying. "You've all received invites to be part of this exclusive gathering of NeoGAF Mafia players from across the globe and Scotland...ish. Please make yourselves at home and have a great time. And I sure hope no one dies ..."
No one died. The Alien Spider fidgeted a little, frowning at their teleprompter slightly.
"Well, shit. Anyway, I think there are some troublemakers amongst you...", The Alien Spider continued after a period of extra long and extra awkward silence, in which someone coughed very politely, as the creature chewed on something that might had been human once. ”I know because I put them there, haha. Yay, me. They may look like humans and they certainly may seem friendly but they are not one of you. They are aliens." A pause. ”Like me." An unnecessary exposition.
”So, we Aliens, we are very interested in you, humans. Our goal is to understand you so we can turn you all into playthings and toys, before we eat you. If you can eject the Aliens amongst you, I will return you safely to Earth." Another pause. ”No, I swear I am telling the truth. Your faces are very impolite >:C"
”OK. That's it from me." The many-limbed Alien took a swig of punch. "Don't drink the punch."
Blackness came upon the screen. The monitor had died.

Game specific rules:
• Activity requirement: 10 posts per day phase -- 1 warning then modkill. You will probably need at least one hour every other day to play. The game should last a little longer than a week. Please PM a mod before you miss a day phase if possible.
• It is considered good etiquette to stick with a game if you can. If you should require a replacement, PM a mod (DO NOT post in the thread about replacing), it will be assumed that something unplanned came up for you.
• Please watch the time, don't post after a day phase ends -- :59 okay, :00 not okay -- 1 warning then modkill.
• Play to win. Don't self vote.
• Always PM a mod questions -- don't ask them in the game thread.
• Never reference any PM or mod question/answer in the game thread.
• Never discuss mod decisions in the game thread -- wait till post game!
• You may post 1 simple "gg" post if you are eliminated before the game ends -- please put "***DEAD***" somewhere in this post just to make sure no one will be confused e.g.:
