Politics & World Events Sheep, Round 1 A Forum Game

Alright, this has been doing pretty well in the Videogame Forum, I thought I'd try it here.

The object of the game is to think alike. For each question, give an answer that you think is most popular. For example, a question might be something like, "Name a popular pizza topping." A good answer would be pepperoni. A bad answer would be shiitake mushrooms.

Each question is then scored by its replies. Let's say there's six participants and of those, three said "Pepperoni", two said "Sausage" and one said "Basil" — The pepperoni players would each get 3 points, the sausage players 2 points, and the basil player 0 points.

The winner is the person with the highest score.

Remember — the point of the game is not the correct answer, but the answer you think most of the other forum members will give. Since this is the Politics & World Events Forum, all the questions will be Politics & World Events related.

To play, simply send me a private message (PM) with your answers, one per line. Please DO NOT number them.

Since I do not know how popular or unpopular this will be, I will leave this open for at least several days. This game works best if we can get at least 15 participants.

Do not use Wikipedia or Google — use only the knowledge in your head.

Sheep, Politics & World Edition — Round 1

  • Name a hotly debated amendment to the US Constitution.
  • Name any current or former Supreme Court Justice.
  • Name a European nation that seems to be on the wrong track.
  • Which administration had it the easiest in the 20th century? (could be politically, economically, etc.)
  • Name a current African head of state.
  • Aside from Nancy Pelosi, name a Speaker of the House.
  • Name the TV network which has the most unbalanced news coverage.
  • Name an especially divisive subject of discussion in the Politics and World Events Subforum. This can be a person (Margaret Thatcher) or an idea (Prohibition) but not something very broad ("the nation" or "politics").
  • Name a foreign country where, currently, there is a peaceful US military presence (i.e. not Iraq).
  • Name a political party aside from the Democratic Party or the GOP.
  • Name a non-living, non-American writer, thinker, or ideologue whose political ideas are still discussed today (for better or worse).
  • Name a movie or documentary that focuses on American politics.
  • Name a DVD Talk member whose posts in the Politics subforum positively contribute to the discussion.
  • Name our most powerful and important military ally.


Have fun! I'll leave this open through at least Thursday night.

Are you kidding me, The Bus? Couldn't you have done something I'm knowledgable on?

Just to be clear...this is a Sheep game, right? You call it Reverse Sheep on the bolded line.

So many choices for #2...should I go with who the average person would name, or who the average dvdtalk political forum poster would name.

Yes, this is a Sheep game. I called it Reverse Sheep out of habit.

For #5, you should have just asked for any African Head of State other than Mandela

There are a few that I know it won't be for sure.

I wouldn't be too surprised if a response of "me" gets the highest score.

The Bus should have added a question for "the voice of reason" in the forum.
