Retro-Arcade Sheep - Hyper Warp Edition

Welcome to the Retro-Arcade Sheep!



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 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. Due to stacked Slam Dunks becoming a bit too powerful in these games, I’m limiting the stacking to 2 on any given question. If you place more than that on a single question, the additional Slam Dunks will not count.

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. If you stack {sd}'s, it will turn the score back into a reverse sheep question.

I will correct mistakes made when sending me your answers at a cost of 10 points.


Other notes

- Unless a question specifies otherwise, answers should be given for ARCADE GAMES ONLY. No console video games, pc games or hand helds should apply here. I’ll use KLOV and Wikipedia to verify answers.

Here are your questions...

01. S: Name the most popular vector based game.
02. S: Name an arcade game that prominently features food.
03. S: Name a popular 4 player arcade game.
04. S: Name an arcade game that prominently features a monkey/ape that is NOT an incarnation of Donkey Kong.
05. S: Name the most popular driving simulation game.
06. S: Name the most popular shooting game that uses a light gun.
07. S: Name the most popular ninja themed arcade game.
08. S: Name the most popular game that used a trigger joystick.
09. S: Name the most popular game that used a trackball.
10. R: Name the most popular game based on a feature film.
11. S: Name a popular opposing fighter from the Punch-Out Series (Punch-Out or Super Punch-Out).
12. S: Name the most popular sports arcade game.
13. S: Name a company that produced/created the best arcade games.
14. S: Name the most popular game featuring martial arts that is NOT a “versus” game (should be a side or top scroller game).
15. R: Name a laserdisc based, cinematic game.
16. S: Name the most popular game that used a paddle (spinner) controller.
17. S: Name the most popular game that only used dual joysticks.
18. S: Name the most popular game that only used buttons.
19. R: Name the most popular theatrically released film based on an arcade game.
20. S: Name the most popular game depicting war.
21. R: Name the most popular level of Donkey Kong.

I think I may have poured too many quarters into too few games to make a good showing here, but I definitely look forward to the screenshots!

Sweet. I'll be sending in answers soon. My kids have watched Wreck It Ralph like 50 times, so I think I will win based solely on that.

BTW - I love the wording of the questions, especially the Rs.

Re: Retro-Arcade Sheep - Hyper Warp Edition

Finally a game where i feel good about my answers. Of course, my answers are only really good for my generation. I was into buying and fixing up arcade games for a few years.

Re: Retro-Arcade Sheep - Hyper Warp Edition

I was lucky enough to grow up in Hawaii during the birth of the arcade. And even more lucky that many arcade games were from Japan. I remember fondly of Mitsukoshi and Game Word, buildings that had whole floors dedicated to not the stand ups, but mostly tabletop arcade games. So when I moved to So Cal, I was already exposed to a lot of games that I never could find again on the mainland.

I kept it loose and generic with the questions, because arcade games span such a good amount of time. Like the Saturday Morning Cartoon Sheep, this will cover decades of possible answers. Luckily, consoles and emulators have kept a lot of the old school arcade games alive for everyone to experience.

That is my thinking as well. Age groups will have similar answers. For example, I stacked two slams on the best developer question and came up with an answer imediatly. I was thinking "there is only one good answer to this." After some more reflection, my answer is the only right answer for the 90's.

Re: Retro-Arcade Sheep - Hyper Warp Edition

I couldn't think of a single good answer for the buttons only question. I went with something far less conventional. I'd be pretty surprised if I get matched.

I'm pretty sure that mine will not be matched.

Re: Retro-Arcade Sheep - Hyper Warp Edition

For many of these questions I could only think of one answer. And on almost as many, I wasn't even sure about that one answer.

Re: Retro-Arcade Sheep - Hyper Warp Edition

Answers in. I haven't done a sheep game in a few years. I always hated fighting games, so those will kill me if anything does.

Also, I think this is my first time ever in the Video Game Forum. Hell, I've been in the Book Forum a few times, at least.

Re: Retro-Arcade Sheep - Hyper Warp Edition

Answers sent. This was REALLY hard. Not because I couldn't come up with any answers, but because I didn't know which era would be more popular. I kind of split the difference with some 80's and some 90's, but I don't feel really good about it.

Re: Retro-Arcade Sheep - Hyper Warp Edition

Holy crap. I will be sending answers.

Edit: For questions 10 and 19 (and 21), doesn't the wording of the question imply only one correct answer? What is the measure of "most popular"? Box office for 19? Coin revenue for 10? Will all other answers be counted wrong?

There are no wrong answers. Only stupid ones.
