Star Wars (Reverse) Sheep: May the Force Be With Ewe



Episode II
MAY THE FORCE BE WITH EWE

WOOL! Three years ago a DVDTalker named cruzness
ran a Star Wars Sheep game. It was an exciting time
as the Otters struck from hidden bases scattered
across the internet. The epic game had many starts
and stops, until finally a brave Jedi Champion emerged
from the ashes and rubble.

Since then, many Sheep games have occurred in the
period of peace. But now Abob Teff has been laid
up on medical orders and something has been
awakened. Despite trade routes being blocked and
political negotiations breaking down, a small band
of DVDTalkers have undertaken a mission of utmost
importance: to race across the galaxy searching
for matching answers hidden inside astromech droids.

It's been almost three years since the first Star Wars Sheep game ... time for the sequel!



Intro for first time players
Spoiler:

(Reverse) Sheep is a game that is part Family Feud, part trivia game. The object of the game is to outwit other players through a series of questions that are usually united in theme. There are two types of questions.
The first, Sheep, is one where you try to think like everyone else and match their answers. The more people you match, the better you do. Let's say we have a game of six players (A through F). A Sheep question might be something like "Name a great color." Sheep questions never have right or wrong answers. Let's say our five players answered like this:
Players A, C, and E said "Blue"
Players B and D said "Green"
Player F said "Chartreuse"
Scoring in Sheep games is like golf: the lower your score, the better. The "Blue" players get -3 points (and the best answer). The "Green" players get -2 points. Player F did not match anyone and gets 0 points.
The second type of question, Reverse Sheep, is the exact opposite. You want to avoid matching other players. A Reverse Sheep question might be something like "Name a state on the Atlantic Coast." Reverse Sheep questions always have right or wrong answers. Let's say our players answered like this:
Players D and E said "Delaware"
Players F and B said "Maine"
Player C said "Texas"
Player A said "South Carolina"
The "Delaware" players get +2 points (a penalty, since you want to have a low score). The "Maine" players also get +2 points. Player C's answer might be debated among the players to see if it is considered correct or not. Wrong answers always score above the most common answer. You're always better off going for something obvious than for something obviously wrong.
That's the gist of it. Each person running a game adds little rules here and there but those are the basics.


General Rules
Spoiler:

The object of the game is to out-think everyone by picking answers to questions that are the most common (Sheep) or least common (Reverse Sheep), but still correct.
Example Sheep question: "Name a professional golfer." A good answer might be Tiger Woods and a bad answer might be Chichi Rodriguez.
Example Reverse Sheep question: "Name a play by Shakespeare." Romeo & Juliet might be a bad answer, but Two Gentlemen of Verona might be a good answer. (Unless everyone is trying to go as obscure as possible).
Scores are tallied according to the number of players answering that question. Sheep answers are tallied as negative. Reverse Sheep answers are tallied as positive. The lowest score wins.
There is no such thing as wrong answer for a Sheep question.
Wrong answers in Reverse Sheep are scored two points above the most common answer.
You may not cheat by using Google, Wikipedia, etc. Use only what's in your head.
Please send in your answers to me via PM. Place only one answer per line, without numbers, set info, or the question itself. Add {sd} to the end of the answer, not the beginning. Those who do not do this will be penalized 10 points right off the bat.
Note: Be creative with your answers, but don't be stupid.
Sheep questions are marked by an S:, Reverse Sheep questions are marked by an R:.


Game-Specific Rules
Unless a question specifies otherwise: We will ONLY be using information specifically from the movies -- no EU, no books, no video games. Rogue One is in play, but ONLY information that we have learned in the released trailers will be judged. Any deviation from these standards will be assessed a 5 point penalty.

Make sure you are specific in your answers (provide everything I need to know what answer you are providing – i.e., the actor, character, film, etc.). Vague answers with multiple interpretations are subject to a 5 point penalty.

Unique Bonus: Reverse Sheep questions will generate additional bonus (negative) points according to the following:
  • 1 Unique is awarded -20
  • 2 Uniques are awarded -15 each
  • 3 Uniques are awarded -10 each
  • 4 Uniques are awarded -5 each
  • 5+ Uniques are awarded -4 each

Slam Dunks {sd} Players have the power of multipliers in their hands. Each player is given five (5) Slam Dunks ({sd}) which they use by adding {sd} to the end of their answer. Your Slam Dunks have different effects depending on the question you use it on:
  • In Sheep questions, the {sd} doubles your points.
  • In Reverse Sheep questions, you can use your {sd} to turn the question into a sheep question for you. However, if your answer is wrong, it does nothing.
  • Slam dunks cannot be stacked. Use one per question only or else they will be discarded. You cannot use two slam dunks to turn a Reverse into a Sheep and then slam dunk those sheep answers.

Reminders: Please send in your answers to me via PM. Place only one answer per line, without numbers or the question itself. Do not forget your {sd}. I will NOT be reminding you. If you submit more than 5 {sd}s, the first five will be accepted and all others discarded.

With that out of the way ... Let's get rolling!



1) Let's start at the beginning … sort of. Who is your favorite character from the Prequel Trilogy?
2) Chewie, we're home. Which planet in the Star Wars universe would you most like to live on?
3) Beyond the movies, Star Wars launched a whole new empire … toys! Which Kenner Star Wars figure, vehicle, or playset was the coolest?
4) REVERSE: Countless aliens were designed over the course of the entire saga, but not very many were named in the movies. Name an alien species which is specifically named in the Star Wars movies.
5) What was the best use of a Star Wars character outside of the SW universe? (TV commercial, other TV show, etc.)
6) What was the worst change in the Special Editions?
7) What was the best change in the Special Editions?
8) REVERSE: Name a director of a Star Wars movie.
9) Peek-a-boo! Name a well-known actor who had a small role or cameo in a SW movie.
10) Christmas is almost here … When you were a kid, what SW toy did you want but never get?
11) What is the coolest looking design for an alien species NOT specifically given a name in a Star Wars movie? (Ambiguous answers will receive a 5 point penalty -- I recommend including the movie, scene, and an adequate description.)
12) REVERSE: This is the weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster; an elegant weapon for a more civilized age. Name a non-Jedi character who handles a lightsaber.
13) We love the bad boys … Other than Darth Vader and the Emperor, who is your favorite Star Wars villain?
14) Despite being highly quotable, the entire saga only has one quote in the AFI Top 100 Movie Quotes. Other than "May the Force be with you", what is your favorite Star Wars quote?
15) What is the most iconic image from the Star Wars movies?
16) REVERSE: Name a relative of Luke Skywalker
17) Other than Jar Jar Binks and the Ewoks, who is your least favorite character.
18) Spaceships are cool and all, but we are stuck on our planet. What form of planetary travel from the movies would you like to have? (Description of a vehicle or creature is OK, but be specific!)
19) REVERSE: Name an actor who has appeared in speaking roles in both a Star Wars and a Marvel superhero movie.
20) Over the course of the films we have seen many different types of stormtrooper armor. Which is your favorite design?

Re: Star Wars (Reverse) Sheep: May the Force Be With Ewe

If we get enough players, I'd like to run the game Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, but that's probably pretty short notice for most players. Maybe Black Friday would be good, but it just depends how many I get and how fast.

I tried to write the questions so casual viewers could play as well. Please let me know if there are any questions or concerns. (I know you will!)

I'll have to guess something for #10 since I was already an adult when SW came out.

Damn ... how old are you? Sorry, I guess I didn't think that one all the way through.

I guess ... go with something you'd like to have now.

Awesome!

Are there only two correct answers for Question 12?

The more I think about it, the more I think there are more than two, but I still probably wouldn't have risked a wrong answer.

I've had my share of shaky sheep questions, but I'm not that bad! I can think of 5, so there is some wiggle room. Don't overthink "wielded" ... Stick with the synonym "handled".

Re: Star Wars (Reverse) Sheep: May the Force Be With Ewe

Dammit. I'm done with all my answers but I can't quite decide where to put my slams. Do I use it for what I think are sheepier answers, or to turn reverses? Fuck this game.

Re: Star Wars (Reverse) Sheep: May the Force Be With Ewe

I look at wielded and handled as two different things. Which are we going with?

Definition of wielded: to use (a weapon, instrument, etc.) effectively; handle or employ actively.

Re: Star Wars (Reverse) Sheep: May the Force Be With Ewe

Yeah, "handled" would suggest anyone who has touched a lighstabre, "wielded" would suggest someone who has turned one on and taken a swing with it.

Agreed. Would like to be able to submit a new answer without penalty if we take wielded as simply held one at some point.

If you're asking for advice, I've always regretted using {sd} to turn reverses. The -24 I would have gotten on some questions more than makes up for the +10 I got on a high matching reverse.

Answers submitted. Now I expect this Star Wars sheep game to proceed without ANY controversy. Because we all know how easy-going and laid-back Star Wars fans are, right?

I can think of at least 4. And my interpretation of the question is that it needed at the very least to be turned on and used for something by said person.

I am going to change the wording to "handled" and will allow anybody who has submitted the opportunity to change his/her answer without penalty.

It's an Abob Teff game ... There will be controversy. There will be. Besides, go back and read the last Star Wars game (after you submit your answers).

Re: Star Wars (Reverse) Sheep: May the Force Be With Ewe

The early poll numbers are looking pretty good ... The AP is already predicting Padme Amidala will handily defeat Senator Palpatine even without some of the outer rim swing systems.
