From what I recall there was an old game somewhat like this on the AO but this one is new, improved, and jazzed up! It’s designed to introduce people to new music but also have some strategy and competitiveness.
Anybody can join at any time. Just because you missed a round does not mean you can never join. The more the merrier.
The rules are simple:
Each week or so mod (IPD) will submit a theme (examples: songs with no lyrics, songs under 80bpm, etc)
You will need to:
::: Submit one song (including the artist) to me via PM to me that fits into the theme :::
You may never:
::: Submit a song by an artist that has already been used in this game. At any point. Ever. (Artists cannot be reused. Songs can if covered by a different artist):::
Once I collect the entries after a few days (no strict time on that but probably like a week or less I dunno we’ll see how the game goes) I will post a poll in ABC order with all the songs that were submitted that week. I won’t say who submitted them.
At that point, vote for a song that is not the one you submitted. It can be for any reason. It can be your favorite. It can be because it elicited nostalgia. Maybe you are happy you were introduced to it, I dunno you do you. Your vote will count as long as you have ever submitted a song in this game at any point, or have posted in the thread at some point before the poll is released
After a few days I will award points to posters who get the most votes for their songs. The number of songs (n) will determine the number of winners I give points to equal to n/4 rounded up. The amount of points will equal 2x+1 to first place (where x = number of winners), and then 2 fewer points to each subsequent winner. So for instance with 9 participants I will give the winner 7 points, 2nd place 5 points, and 3rd place 3 points. Ties will split the points evenly. You cannot earn any points if you got 0 votes.
- If two participants submit a song by the same artist in the week I will allow it, as long as it’s not the same song. If it’s the same song then I will reject the 2nd submittal.
- You can submit the same song from previous rounds if it’s a cover with a different artist.
- If a song has multiple artists, the “main” artist will count at the mod’s discretion.
- If you have multiple accounts please only use one alt to play.
There’s no ultimate winner, but I will keep a tally of cumulative points. Submitting youtube videos of the song is appreciated. Discussion of music and the songs submitted is also encouraged!
