May the SHEEP Be With You: STAR WARS 40th ANNIVERSARY (Reverse) SHEEP GAME

May the SHEEP Be With You: STAR WARS 40th ANNIVERSARY (Reverse) SHEEP GAME






40 freakin' years ago this May, George Lucas' Star Wars came to this galaxy. What better way to celebrate than bringing back a (Reverse) Sheep Game.


The basic rules:

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

To be considered correct, answers must be from theatrically released feature films, no TV shows, shorts or webisodes.

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

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} adds 1 to the Multiplier.
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.





A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...


01. S: Which character in the Star Wars trilogy speaks no lines in English?

02. S: Identify a scene where Princess Leia either kisses or is kissed by someone

03. S: Ouch! Name a character who gets hit by a light sabre

04. S: What's the coolest thing on the Millennium Falcon?

05. S: Name a planet in the Star Wars universe

06. R: Name one of the original 12 Star Wars action figures put out by Kenner

07. S: Mark Hamill has been on what TV show

08. S: Since David Lynch turned down directing Return of the Jedi, name another movie David Lynch directed

09. S: Which TV show has parodied Star Wars

10. S: Name a character who appears in The Star Wars Holiday Special

11. R: Name an actor who's been in Star Wars, The Empire Strikes BAck, and Return of the Jedi yet never shows their face on-screen

12. S: Name (or describe) a location on the Death Star

13. S: Name a relative of Luke's

14. S: Name a robot character

15. R: Name a non-Star Wars movie featuring a performance by Harrison Ford where his character doesn't kill anyone (on-screen)

16. S: Name one of the heros who visits Jabba's palace

17. S: Who do we never see use a weapon?

18. S: Who is your favourite Jedi?

19. R: Star Wars (1977) received an Oscar nomination for____________


Bonus points:





20. S: I've written a Star Wars question but will not reveal it until after the answers are in (were this question known, I guarantee every player would match). Use the force and give me that very sheepy answer.

I don't like wool. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere.

I'm still waiting in line ... If only theaters would show a movie on more than one screen ...

Oh well, I will continue to wait for the "Adult" version advertised above.

For the longest time, films in Ontario were either all ages with the occasional European or sexual themed movie being "Restricted". In the 70's, the "Adult" label was a way of marking all-ages movies as possibly having some questionable material (language, violence). Although "Adult" now has connotations to porno, back then it was our version of a PG rating.

So far everyone has given one character, so if you give a list you'll be in a category of your own.

BTW, I'm delighted to announce more than one player is so confident in the not only their own use of the force, but every other player's, that they {sd}'d Question 20.

I'm guessing you'll give a heads up before it closes? I'll submit answers for sure, but I want to give it some more time to percolate in my brain.

I'll admit, I feel an urge to slam that question too. But I fear it may just be the Dark Side of The Force speaking to me.

Dammit. Is it too late to change one of my slams to #20? (just trying to follow where the sheep graze)

I miss the days when pornos were rated PG.

The question asked which "ONE," not which "HEROES". That should have been enough for you to choose only one.

To be fair it didn't say that yesterday, Crocker updated it.

It was "16. S: Which of our heros visits Jabba's palace"

I re-worded the question after DaveNinja stated his confusion.

There goes Crocker, raping our lambhood by digitally altering his Star Wars Sheep games.

Why can't we just get the originals?!
