The Oddest Out


Guest

Question

OK, welcome and thanks for playing this game 'The Oddest Out'

Allow me to repost the rules here.

Minimum 10 players will make this game start. In every round, we will post 8 questions asking about the word you think it could be.

For example “What is the 2 letters word that end with ‘t’?”, and the question format will be like ‘*t’.

Submit your answer by PM us. Your answer can be either ‘it’ or ‘at’ or any word as long as it can be accepted and can be found in dictionary.

After everyone PM us, we will start calculate your score based on the Common Answer method.

The 3 lowest scorers will enter the Elimination Decision Circle (EDC). They will be given another chance to change 3 out of 8 of their questions. This change may affect the scores of all participants. By that time, the lowest scorer will be eliminated from the competition. So if they luckily choose the right question and change to the right answer, they will be saved by kicking someone else out.

Then we will proceed to another round by asking another 8 questions. This format goes on until we left 7 participants. By that time, we will get the 2 lowest scorers enter the EDC.

When we have 4 participants left, only the last lowest scorer get into the EDC.

When left only 2 participants, which is the final round, the rules will be slightly different.

Remember the first 8 participants that have been eliminated from the game? When each of them been eliminated, they will be asked a set of 8 questions. So when we enter to the final round, the remaining 2 participants will answer the same question sets that we questioned other 8 participants when they were out.

Remember: They are out because they are the oddest! So, between the last 2 participant, whoever has MORE question similar to the other 8 or score HIGHER will LOSE the game. This is because you are approaching to the odds than the commons. biggrin.gif

Because we have 14 participants, we will start from:

If there are 11 to 15 players, 4 will enter the EDC and 2 will be out!
If left 8 to 10 players, 3 will enter the EDC and 1 will be out!
If left 5 to 7 players, 2 will enter the EDC and 1 will be out!
If left 3-4 players, 1 will enter the EDC and 1 will be out!
The last 2 will enter the final round as per mentioned above.



And here comes the roster:

Host: woon & taliesin
Players:
1. Kat
2. impervious
3. andromeda
4. A. Person

How do you come up with the questions? Do you start off with the answer and work backwards or think of a question and hope there is an answer?

Kat: Is there a possibility of ghost popcorn this game? Mmmmmmmm.

Hi Friend, Do you really have to do this? You are just eliminated but not killed.

So, you still can post as normal post and hence no ghost popcorn. :P

Yes, since a month ago, I start build up the word database little bit by little bit until there is enough for throwing this game.

Then from time to time discuss with taliesin about the format and some rules.

Hope you like it. :)

I like the game. Many thanks for hosting. :D

I don't like not having ghost popcorn :huh::o:( <_< :unsure:

:P (the closest I could get to the seven stages of grief)

Sweet game, Woon! We all appreciate the hard work you put into this game :D

Isn't it terrifying not having ghost popcorn??? I've only had it once, and have been dreaming about it ever since ;)

It is very reassuring you know the seven stages of grief, UkJon :P

thanks everyone. I am still learning how to make a game that majority people like.

4 hours and 30 minutes to go before we close this round, I am still waiting the answers from RainThinker.... :mellow:

Ok, I saw most of you are online so I asking for your opinion:

If RainThinker doesn't reply within these few hours, do you willing to wait for couples of hours or you wish me get the rule straight and put him into one of the EDC? :huh:

I did better than last time, I guess. :D EDC girls and Rainthinker, take great care in choosing your answers. I don't want to be eliminated. :P

I think you're safe, sitting all the way up there at 80%. I've made my changes, though there were at least 4 that I wanted to change. It turns out picking words that fit a theme was not a good strategy.
