What Were You Thinking???
« on: September 19, 2017, 09:09:10 PM »
SETUP RULES
  • A game will be played with as many players as would like to sign up, with a minimum of 10 players.
  • Players are welcome to join whenever they'd like, but any player that starts after the first round has ended will start on the same level as the player in last place.
Wheaton's Law
Don't be a dick.

Object
    The player with the lowest position when one player reaches the highest position (position seven) is the winner. If more than one player is tied for the winning position, those who've reached position seven are out of the game and the rest will continue until there is a clear winner.

How to Play
  • A category will be given each round such as "Name Five Pieces of Exercise Equipment" or "Which Player Reads the Most Novels." All players must then PM me their choices as answers for the current category.
  • I will give a deadline for PM submissions of your answers and, at deadline, will post them all. The point is not to give the correct answer(s), but to give the most popular answer(s).
  • Outside help (e.g. Internet searching and/or discussion of the current topic with other players) is disallowed; answers must be actual attempts to fit the category -- none of this giving of answers that don't fit just for laughs or to match others outside of the category.
  • Players may not discuss the current question with one another.
  • Players that do not submit answers before the deadline will automatically drop a position in addition to the player with the lowest score. All players are given three "strikes". If you do not submit your answers before the deadline on three occasions, you will be dropped from the competition officially.
  • At a certain point based on moderator discretion, I may switch the game to be solely binary choice questions, to expedite the ending.
Scoring
  • All players start at the same position (position zero) and only move from this position if they have the lowest score in any given round.
  • If there is a tie for least number of points, all those involved in the tie move forward.  If all players tie, all will move forward.
  • Players score zero points if they give an answer that matches no other player during a round.
  • Players that give the same answer score a total amount of points equivalent to the number of players that also gave that answer.

We will begin. The question will be posted for up to 24 hours. All current players must PM me the answer...but anyone who hasn't signed up yet can submit an answer and it will be counted. This game works best with a high number of players.

Question #1: Name four professional sports teams based in California.

Deadline is in 24 hours from this post. Please PM ME your answers, do not discuss in the thread.

Jon - 8

Results
I think ya'll are tripping on some of your answers (who wouldn't want to live in France??) no one gets a perfect score, but Pancho wins his second round in a row with a near perfect attempt. Apparently, Jon wants to visit really crappy countries, and he falls to Level 1 as a result. Rebel didn't submit and he will drop to Level 1.

Question 4: Would you rather vacation cross-country via train, via plane, or via car?

Deadline is about 24 hours from this post.

Which country? Traveling cross-country in the UK wouldn't make sense in a plane and countries like Japan and China have much better trains than America.

Three perfect scores this round from Adam, Digger, and Justin, and we came close to two perfect answers, but it was not to be. Talon's nonscoring answer drops him just enough and he falls to Level 1.

Deadline is 24ish hours from now.
