The Matching Game
« on: June 08, 2017, 01:16:43 am »
(based on Simon's How are your friends? game from last year)

This game is new and exciting. Learn funky facts about your fellow Lemmingsforums posters!

Joining is simple! A list of questions are posted below. Simply PM me (the Quizmaster) with answers to all these questions.

After a week or so I will post all of the answers given, anonymously. Then your job is to try and match all the responses with who you think gave them (a list of who participated will also be given).
You'll get 1 point for a correct guess, 0 for incorrect guesses, this includes your own answers. You also needn't participated in the first part to make a guess in the second.

If you have any questions feel free to ask here in this thread.

-----------


1 - What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

2 - what website (besides the Lemmings forum) do you visit most often?

3 - What did the three wise men bring to baby Jesus?

4 - If you could choose any profession to suddenly do (isntead of your current one) what would it be?

5 - What video game character best describes you?

6 - Pop quiz, hotshot: There's a bomb on a bus, full of passengers traveling down a highway in a busy U.S. City. The bus's number is 2525. If the bus goes over 50 MPH, the bomb is armed. If it then goes below 50, it blows up. Now what do you do?

5 people joined so far, more can join, come and have fun!

I want to clarify a few things:

-you may change your answer to any (or all) the questions up until the second phase starts.
-The Quizmaster may participate in the first phase, but not the second phase (for obvious reasons).

A wild (and possibly not very good) idea for the second part: what do you think about having people also match responses to "QuizMaster" in addition to the actual list of participants (in which QuizMaster's actual identity is listed)?  Basically for each question, there will be one response that the player will match to both an actual person in the list, as well as to "QuizMaster", each scored separately for the 1 point if correct.  If a player is sure they know who the QuizMaster is (and probably at least one person actually does due to communication of passwords), they could choose to consistently match responses accordingly, but then they are basically double-betting on the accuracy of their response-matchings for QuizMaster, so even then it may not actually be an advantage compared to those who don't know who the QuizMaster is.  You are not required to be consistent from question to question in picking whose answer to match to "QuizMaster".

(If the QuizMaster abstains from phase 1, then the only fair scoring is that no one gets any points for their matches to QuizMaster.  I considered somehow letting people guess whether QuizMaster abstained in lieu of matching a response to QuizMaster, but this doesn't work since someone may know for sure who the QuizMaster is and therefore will also know whether he/she participated in phase 1.)

There is one main problem with this suggestion: Everyone following IRC somewhat closely (or reading through the logs) does know the Quizmaster's identity.

Since this is a new and experimental game, it will be kept simple at least for now, to gauge how fun it can be at it's basic level.

And Nepster's right, Simon gave me the password months ago and I've stated several times I planned to do it; just didn't get around to it until now.

The Matching Game [GUESSING PHASE]
« Reply #6 on: June 15, 2017, 12:24:35 am »
The Matching Game Phase Two!

11 people have submitted answers and it’s time to guess who said what. Round 1 now is closed; please don’t enter with answers to the questions from round 1.

Anyone may join this phase even if you haven’t participated in phase 1. The object is to guess the answers other people gave. Below is a list of all answers given (randomized). Put the name of who you think gave each answer after it. If you can’t decide on any particular one, simply skip it. You needn’t guess all answers

You may only make 1 guess per pair, in other words if there is 1 answer of “asparagus” then you may only pair it with one participant once. You don’t have to use up all the answers or participants. If you leave any out you simple don’t score for those. There are no penalties. Each correctly guessed answer = 1 point.
In the event that multiple people answered the same, you may pair these as many times as they answered; in other words if 3 people answered “asparagus” you may pair asparagus up with three different people, but no more.

To guess; PM the quizmaster. Make your guesses in this format: [THIS IS AN EXAMPLE ONLY]

1 - What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

[answer given by participant in round 1 - guess by player in round 2]
[There were five participants (five answers for each question)]
[this is how imaginary player "Jonny Humper" would make his guess for question 1:]

asparagus - Raymanni
leek (2 people answered) - mobius, ccx
club mate - Simon
Porcupine -

[Johnny Humper’s guess score breakdown]...

asparagus - Raymanni - correct = 1
leek (2 people answered) - mobius, correct = 1, Simon, (Jonny Humper said ccx, wrong = 0
club mate - ccx, (he said Simon) wrong =  0
Porcupine - geoo [answer left blank will be treated as no guess (0 points), same as wrong guess]

so Johnny Humper gets 2 points total for this question.
All the points from all questions are added up. Player with highest score in the end wins!

--------------------------------------

<<<<Here’s who entered answers from phase 1>>>>>>

6 - Pop quiz, hotshot: There's a bomb on a bus, full of passengers traveling down a highway in a busy U.S. City. The bus's number is 2525. If the bus goes over 50 MPH, the bomb is armed. If it then goes below 50, it blows up. Now what do you do?

answers:

panic -

Jump off the bus and hope I survive. -

It is most likely I am not on this bus and therefore don't know about its existence and terroristic properties, thus I am probably at home sleeping or playing video games, considering the time zone difference. -

Keep the bus just over 80,4672 km/h () and let the passengers jump out as carefully as possible. Better to break some bones as exploding! Of course the driver must be the last one to jump out + choosing a place where the bomb can explode with as little collateral damage as possible. -

Anything I want; this is America after all. -

I would be clueless -

Make note of what everyone else does and publish the events as a movie script. -

Call police, tell 2525. They have enough time to stop because the bus can't go fast in the crowded city. -

If I'm the driver: Honk to make sure the lane stays clear in front of me, If I'm a passenger: DON'T PANIC, If I'm neither: Get the popcorn ready. -

Tell the driver there’s a bomb on the bus and also phone the police/army/bomb defusal team -

shoot the hostages -
