Question

Guest

Hello.

I’ve been thinking about hosting something different, and so has emerged this, "THE NUMBER GAME".

After around 12-20 people sign up, everyone is asked to PM a number from 1 to the number that is half the number of players. Then all the people who chose a number that no-one else did, get to stay in the game and everyone else is out. The process is continued until we have one or a few winners, depending on how the game pans out. So the idea is to pick a number you think no-one else will… kind of like a reverse of Taliesin’s Common Answers quiz.

If you like it let me know and sign up if you wish and if you have any ideas for improvement or suggestions, please post.

Thanks,

Asiya

yes i was thinking about that.

First, I think that to make that less likely, we'll have to up the number of choices to begin wit. Also, it'll be the number/s with the fewest people. And if all the numbers had the same number of people we'd just have to repeat the round, I suppose.

I'll play - I assume the numbers will be integers only, but there is probably someone in this group who needs to have that particular nuance confirmed! :P

Okay thirteen that could work. I need to sort out the final rules in a bit and then we'll play. This is just kind of a trial; we shall see if it works...

(edit: but plz feel free to sign up if i dont have the final rules up)

Also, peace*out asked if she could host a similar game soon so I'm just giving her some free advertising for when it starts!

THE NUMBER GAME

Rules

Once prompted by PM, follow the instructions, which will be something along the lines of:

Please reply with any whole number from one to (a number) inclusive.

The choices of integer will be from 1 to the number that is approximately ¾ of the number of players, but you'll be told in the PM what the highest number is.

Then when all players have replied with their choice of number, I'll group all the people who chose each integer together. The group(s) with the fewest people will remain in the game and everyone else is out.

This will keep going until we have one, two or three winners (or when it's too difficult to cut the number of players down anymore)

Hope that's clear.

In that case if only 1 person selects, let's say '8", then everyone else is out and he wins in round 1.

I think you should make it such that The group(s) with the most people is out while others remain.

EDIT: restructured sentence

Hmm.. OK let's go with that. It'll last a bit longer I think.

Thanks Ben.

NEW RULE: The group(s) with the highest number of people are out.

(whereas the old rule was the group(s) with the lowest number of people weren't out.)
