Oppa Sheepnam Style!



Welcome to Music Sheep vol 4!

Intro for first time players
Spoiler:

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 20 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
Spoiler:

  • Unique Bonus: Reverse Sheep questions will generate additional bonus (negative) points according to the following:
    1 Unique is awarded -15
    2 Uniques are awarded -10 each
    3 Uniques are awarded -6 each
    4 Uniques are awarded -3 each
    5+ Uniques are awarded -1 each
  • Slam Dunks {sd} Players have the power of multipliers in their hands. Each player is given five (5) Slam Dunks ({sd}s) which they use by adding {sd} to the end of their answer. Slam Dunks have different effects depending on the question you use them in:
    • In Sheep questions, the {sd} adds 1 to the Multiplier. You are allowed to use up to all 5 of your {sd}s on any given question.
    • In Reverse Sheep questions, you can use a single {sd} to turn the question into a sheep question for you. However, if your answer is wrong, it does nothing. I will answer any questions you have about Slam Dunks.

  • And another reminder: Please send in your answers to me via PM. Place only one answer per line, without numbers or the question itself. Add {sd} to the end of the answer, not the beginning. Those who do not do this will be penalized 20 points right off the bat.

    I will also correct mistakes you may have made when originally sending me your answers at a cost of 10 points.


    I’m not sure how many entrants I will take, but I’ll let you know when I’m not taking anymore. (though will make special dispensations for anyone who has run a Sheep game in the past)
    I will start the game sometime after Sci Fi TV sheep ends and sometime before DVD Bargain Sheep begins. I'm posting this early because I won't have a lot of time to tabulate scores and I won't be able to run the game at all except for evenings after 7PM most days.

    Now on to the questions!


    The Questions

    1. S: Who is the least deserving member of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?
    2. R: Name a song that hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 sometime within 1995 through 1999.
    3. S: Name a classical composer whose last name doesn’t begin with B or M.
    4. R: Name somebody that was either a member of The Highwaymen or Blind Faith.
    5. S: Name a girl group that isn’t from the UK.
    6. R: Name somebody that hosted the MTV Video Music Awards.
    7. S: The term “old school” means different things to different people. What would you consider to be the pinnacle year of “old school rap”?
    8. R: Name one of The Beatles original UK studio albums. (To avoid controversy, I’m preemptively calling “Magical Mystery Tour” a wrong answer.)
    9. S: What is the best music video of all time that isn’t Thriller?
    10. R: Name a song that won Best Original Song at the Academy Awards after 1989
    11. S: Name a novelty song that became popular.
    12. R: Name one of the original MTV VJs.
    13. S: Name the quintessential boy band song.
    14. R: Name an artist that has won a Grammy award for Best Rap Album.
    15. S: So far, what has been the best album released in the 21st century?
    16. R: Name one of Michael Jackson’s solo studio albums.
    17. S: Name a notable one-hit-wonder song that doesn't have "Hey Macarena!" as a lyric.
    18. R: Name an artist that had one of the first 25 music videos ever played on MTV.
    19. S: Name a song with a one-word title that is a person’s name.
    20. R: Name a member of New Edition.

      This game is now full. Not sure when we will start.

    Answers sent. I've a feeling this is going to be a case of one or two people mopping up and the rest of us competing for last place. Had to guess at just getting a correct answer on a couple and there were quite a few sheep where I've no idea what people here will say.

    There is no excuse for getting any of them wrong. Maybe have bad answers, but not wrong. Hang your head in shame, sir.

    Submitted my answers. I forgot to add my Slam Dunks, hit submit and instantly hit the Red X on the browser to cancel. Added the Slam Dunks, submitted, looked at my sent folder and see that the original message went as well. I'll take my damn penalty.

    Last place will be mine! Yes, I'm old and even though I try to keep up, I know some of my reverse answers would be better as sheep answers.

    I had to guess on No. 2 simply because I don't know what hit no. 1. I simply submitted a song from the era that was popular enough that it probably did hit no. 1.

    As long as you knew at least one of the members of New Edition, you can hold your head high.

    Yeah, I struggled on anything that had to do with awards/award shows.
