SHEEP Sheep - A game for the simple minds.

<b>Calling all Sheep fans, calling all Sheep fans!</b>


Welcome to SHEEP Sheep, where we keep it simple! This is a plain SHEEP game - no reverse sheep questions, no wolf questions, no sheep-mate questions, no tandem questions, no hacks, no slam dunks, no slam ducks, no x15 questions, and since they're SHEEP questions, feel free to use GOOGLERockmj23!

<b>Intro for first time Sheep players</b>
Spoiler:
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 this Sheep game is <b>not like golf</b>: the higher 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.


<b>Critical Acclaim for Sheep games</b>
Spoiler:
"Sheep games are fucking cool." - Someone
"Why don't you have a cool graphic like the others?" - Inevitable


<b>General Rules</b>
Spoiler:
<ul><li> The object of the game is to out-think everyone by picking answers to questions that are the most common (<FONT style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #F9DF00">Sheep</font>)
<li> Example <FONT style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #F9DF00">Sheep</font> question: "Name a professional golfer." A good answer might be Tiger Woods and a bad answer might be Chichi Rodriguez.
Scores are tallied according to the number of players answering that question. Sheep answers are tallied as positive.
<li> There is no such thing as wrong answer for a Sheep question.
<li> Certain rounds are considered Lightning Rounds (designated by a multiplier, such as ◊2). In these rounds, scores are adjusted by the <u>number on the multiplier</u>. In a sheep round, a wrong answer scores normally.
<li> You may cheat by using Google, Wikipedia, etc.
<li> Please send in your answers to me via PM. Place only one answer per line, without numbers, set info, or the question itself. Those who do not do this will be penalized 10 points right off the bat.
<li> Sheep questions are not marked by an <FONT style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #F9DF00">S:</font>, because this is ONLY a Sheep game.


<b>Game Specific Rules</b>
Spoiler:
<b>Unique bonus - A kick in the nuts, because you're not supposed to have unique answers.


<b>The Questions</b>

1. If Pepsi & Coke did not exist, what would be the best soda out there?
2. If vanilla & chocolate did not exist, what would be the best ice cream flavor out there?
3. If Ryan Leaf did not exist, who would be the biggest NFL draft bust in history? x2
4. If Adrian Peterson did not exist, who would be the first player taken in every fantasy football draft this year?
5. If McDonalds did not exist, what fast food chain would have the best fries?

6. Who is the best <i>living</i> rapper? x3
7. What video game system gives you the best memories?
8. Out of the recent 'movie series reboots', which is the worst?
9. Besides Madden, what is the best sports video game series?

14. It's backyard BBQ'ing season! What food/drink is a must have for a good cookout?

Re: SHEEP Sheep - A game for the simple minds.

Sheep is good.. reverse sheep is perfectly fine.. but wow have these games gotten silly-complicated! I passed on the new Music one, and that's one of the three I've yet to miss.

Thankful for Google here.. I had to use it on all the sports-type questions!

Re: SHEEP Sheep - A game for the simple minds.

Tarantino - I sent you a revised list of answers. At first I couldn't remember a member's name, so I just gave a description of some of their threads. I just remembered it, so I sent you an updated list with their name.

When I looked over her answers, I noticed that I mis-read question #8 as Robot instead of reboot. Needless to say, I don't think I am going to match anyone. Also, I hope others read the ice cream question as only excluding 2 flavors and not 2 ingredients.

Re: SHEEP Sheep - A game for the simple minds.



Glad to see the game I intended to make super simple has turned into a train wreck!

orangecrush, I got your revised answers...and yes; Pepsi/Coke was for the drink itself, not the company, and the ice cream flavors, not ingredients.
