Family Guy or Futurama sheep...anyone interested?

I am thinking about running one of these and the two that came to mind were Futurama and Family Guy.

Just gauging interest. If people are interested I will gladly run it.

I was even thinking Venture Brothers...that might be cool.

But I love me some Futurama.

How about South Park?

I could possibly do Futurama, but many of the episodes I've only seen once.

Depending on how challenging they are I would be down for either one. I wouldn't recommend a Venture Brothers game, only because I think the pool of potential players would be too small.

Might be better off just doing an animation sheep, as show specific games limit your players too much

I voted other. I like the idea of mixing together a few different animated series to do a sheep game .

Don't do a hodgepodge. Many of us don't watch certain animinated shows.

If we can get a dozen people for that, a Sheep game would be fun.

Re: Family Guy or Futurama sheep...anyone interested?

I like the idea of a general one...and The Bus makes a good point. 15 people for Ventures sheep would be kind of cool.

So how about I do both?

I'd be in for Family Guy. Only other show I know pretty much everything about besides Simpsons (which I missed out on).

I vote Futurama. I'm a huge fan. Though I have no clue what this "sheep" game is you guys are talking about. I've stayed away from those threads.

I second that. Unless it was very, very general I don't think the combined game would work well. I've seen so little Family Guy I'm not even sure I can name all the members of the family.

I'd be all over a Futurama game though.

So they shouldnt do a game that 100 people would be able to play because you might not know a little bit of

But they should do a game that 10 people can play and 90 people would know nothing of

I voted for Family Guy, but I'd be down for either one. Hopefully they'll be a round two of Simpsons Sheep; I missed out on that one and being able to use my Simpsons Family Album knowledge.

Having participated in 3 show-specific games vs. a general TV game, the show-specific are more fun IMO.

I also doubt the people who put in the great effort to run these games want to do a 100-person game.

How about a Family Guy game with questions that only someone with an advanced law degree could answer?

Exactly. No one is going to run a huge game. A general animation one would probably be capped by the host at 25 or 30 people tops anyway. I'd guess most show specific games could get that without having to turn away dozens that want in.

Yup that is on the money. The limit would be 25.

I can do either or, I will leave it up to all of you.

Definitely Futurama. I don't really watch Family Guy anymore, so I'd probably stay away from that one.

Also, instead of a Venture Bros. specific game, how about an Adult Swim game?
