Royal Ape's Sheep
Random questions on a Sunday afternoon. Plus I want to get used to how the modding works so I can run a variation I've been thinking about.

Answers due by Friday 11/13 - 11am BGG time.
Reveal - likely Friday but depends on my week.

Rules
-The goal is to choose the same answer as the largest number of people.
-For each question, you get a point for your answer plus a point
for each of the players who chose the same answer you did.
-Research is permitted.
-No discussion of questions/answers in thread prior to start of reveal.
-Mod has full discretion on whether or not to combine answers.
-Correct answers are not required but if a specific answer is excluded, any answers giving that answer will receive a 0.
-Ask any questions you may have via GeekMail.

Prizes
1st Place - 3 GG
2nd Place - 1 GG
3rd Place - 0.25 GG
Mod Doppelganger - 1 GG

Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon? Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.

I don't think research was necessary/helpful on many of them.

Some for me it's either look up the subject or leave it blank.

All the ones I could answer myself were my true answers. I expect to do poorly.

So maybe 10 questions is the sweet spot?

it's not that, I just realized that i had no idea what about half of the questions even were. this one is not geared for me. like for example i don't even know one type of pokemon(i didn't even know there WERE multiple types).

I'm just too old for this one I think. I'll let you young whippersnappers do this one.

Yeah, that one I just asked my son! There were a few I had to look up, but most of them were fun.
I'm looking forward to the reveal. There seem to be several intriguing, singleton-heavy questions.

We can discuss this more after it's closed for submissions, but Royal clearly made a conscious attempt to write questions that don't incetivize research. Many of the cultural (i.e. video game) references will require research fornmany, but besides that Google won't help too much...

I think it's fun when people have no idea and need to guess something, sometimes you will match with others doing the same!

I think having lots of singletons is much more fun than everyone having the same answer and someone in last place forever because he missed this one question!

There are 2 frustrating questions in sheep.

1. The Landslide question where 90% of the respondents sheep it
2. The eternal Ace question where the response space is too wide

We did Vague Sheep once and it turned out pretty nicely. Most questions we had several answers, but somewhat clumped too.

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.
