THE SHEEP TOURNAMENT

The Game

Sheep is a game in which you are given a series of questions. You submit answers to these questions back to the moderator. The goal of the game is to have these answers match as many people as possible.

Some Sheep Rules and FYI

* Discussion of answers is not allowed.
* Combining of answers is mod's discretion. Usually it will depend on ambiguity of answer and how general an answer is relative to context.
* Research is permitted.
* There are no special point bonuses or rules. 1 point per match per answer as usual for every game.
* Questions that include an excluded answer will count the excluded answer as 0 if given.
* The first tiebreaker for each game is lowest amount of aces/singletons. The second tiebreaker is highest total on question 1. Third tiebreaker is question 2, et al. A perfect sheep match will be a coin flip.

Tournament Format

* The first round consists of 8 games, each with 8 players.
* Top 4 finishers in each game advance to next round - tiebreakers used as needed.
* Second round games will consist of 4 games of 8 players. Third round/semis will have 2 games of 8 players. Finals will have one 8 player game.
* Winners in each game will carry a 2 points bonus into the next round. Runners up will carry a one point bonus.
* Advanced players for the next round will be randomly shuffled into the new round's games but each game will have one winner and one runner up from the previous round.

Other Tournament Info

* People are encourage to participate in the reveals - ALL people: players in the current game, those in other games, non-players who are observing.
* You won't know your fellow players for each game. This is encouraged since the low number of players in each game could create "insider" submission situations for players who know each other well.
* The total number of questions for each round will be half of whats needed (e.g. 80 total questions for first round - there will be 40 unique questions). Each will be used for two different games.

Re: Sheep Tournament Rules and Reveal Thread
1. What does "How many games of different board games would you preferably want to play in 9 hours?" exactly mean?

This question/category was intended regarding how many non-repeating games you'd preferably play during that 9 hour session, showing a preference towards long games, short games, or a mix.

With Trigun being this lock consensus good read for so many people, I find it really bizarre that she's alive. There's a threshold where if she's still alive she should probably be murdalated.

It's not about who you know. Enlightenment comes from within. The Dalai Lama texted me that.

Yeah. Lack of research would have made that one impossible.

Same here, and I'm not even sure if I submitted answers! This whole by-geekmail-only thing is tricky to keep track of.

Google maps Des Moines, then picking the first restaurant you saw on the map near where they put the location marker?

Yeah. I already deleted the GM from Murph because I like only having one page of GMs.

I have 0 inbox GMs. My outbox is full of crap, but it's because I never use it so I don't care what's in it.

I keep some, so I don't think I'll ever get to 0.

Oh. I googled "Locust St. Des Moines Restaurants". Centro was second on the list, but its name felt easier.
