Over at some other place I won't mention, there is a game that is currently in the middle of its third incarnation. It's based on the Eurovision Song Contest, and it works like this:
There are twelve players and one moderator. In each round, all of the players submit a song (via YouTube) to the moderator, who shuffles and anonymises them and presents them back to the players for voting.
Players give each of the songs submitted by the other players one of the following scores: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12. They don't score their own submission. You can't give two songs the same score - you have to give one song 12 and one song 0, even if you hate (or love) everything in the round. Traditionally, the players also provide short comments on the entries, and sometimes guess at who submitted what. The one who scores the most total points is the "winner" of that round - though they don't actually win anything except bragging rights. The game runs for twelve rounds. (There is also a bonus round, where each player submits a song chosen specifically for each other player. The moderator sends to each player all the songs submitted for them, and they are scored as usual.)
Scores are submitted to the moderator rather than posted in the thread. The moderator compiles and posts them all at the same time to avoid favouritism and OMGUS voting. Over at that other place we also have someone who is better with numbers than I am who does all sorts of fun statistical stuff with the scores.
Is there anyone here would might be interested in a game like this? At the other place, games tend to run for a long time - Forumvision 2 lasted for over a year realtime due to peoples' schedules and delays in rating and submitting - so it's a bit of a commitment. However, it's a great way to discover new music, and it's always fun engaging in snarky banter about other players' clearly inferior musical tastes.
I would obviously be the moderator for the first round (unless someone else wants to volunteer). How about it? Interested?
