    The Mafia Universe Olympics: Event 3 - SHEEP

    OLYMPIC EVENT 3: SHEEP

    The rules are: You must try to match as many other people as possible with your answers to various questions. You score the amount of points that = the amount of people answering whatever you answered.

    I.e. if the question was "Name an MU admin" and 5 people answered "Thingyman", then those 5 people would all earn 5 points. And if 7 people answered "Barack Obama", they would earn 7 points, even though that answer is incorrect. So being correct doesn't matter - you just want to match the most popular answer.

    Research is allowed.

    Do not discuss your answers with anyone else inside or outside of this thread. Do not make any hints about how you're answering or how you're perceiving any of the questions in any way.

    Send your entry to me via PM.

    The questions:
    1. Name a male comedic actor
    2. Name a female pop singer
    3. Name the first thing you do when you wake up
    4. Name the last thing you want to see under your bed
    5. Name a video game with a male protagonist
    6. Name a video game with a female protagonist
    7. Name a country in Western Africa
    8. Name a country in South East Asia
    9. Name the most ridiculous sounding NBA team name
    10. Name the most boring sounding Premier League team name
    11. Name the best summer cocktail
    12. Name the worst MU username (Thingyman = 0 points)
    13. Name a person whose name we suddenly started hearing a lot in 2020.
    14. Name a year between 1900-2000 with great historic significance.

    YOUR ENTRY SHOULD LOOK LIKE THIS:

    apple
    coca-cola
    united states
    the last dance
    space jam
    etc.

    [i.e. NO spaces between each answer!!!]
    Deadline: July 3 @ 10 PM EST (and reveal hopefully the day after)

    I've already gotten several similar questions.

    "I want some clarification on X..."

    or

    "For question X, does it to have be Y or Z?"

    The answer is: There are no wrong answers in SHEEP, and no clarification will ever be offered. The point of the game is that you all have those same questions, and then you try to guess what other people will answer to those questions. This means you also have to make assumptions about how others will interpret those questions.

    Do the answers have to be worded exactly the same to be considered the same answer, ie would Trump and Donald Trump be the same? Or mow the grass, cut the lawn?

    Those two specific examples would be grouped/considered the same answer.

    But Mad Max and Mad Max 3 wouldn’t be grouped, for example. Can’t think of more good examples right now.

    We have a new cool thing showing open other game sign-ups on the front page now, but it requires me making a new thread, so I'm gonna do that and then merge this into it.

    You can reuse answers, yes.

    Unless there is a parenthesis saying that a certain answer is invalid and will get you 0 points, you can always answer whatever you want to any question.

    Just to be clear: You don't have to write /in to join. It doesn't work like a mafia game.

    The game has already started, so to say, and all you need to do is send me an entry with your answers to the questions in OP.

    This is what I was hoping wouldn't be the answer.

    @Thingyman get the DarkMagus 2017 sheepulator from 2+2 POG stickies. PM me if you need any help with it.

    Nah...

    I'll allow late entries until whenever I reveal.

    I need to do a podcast tomorrow and hopefully a walrus reveal after on the same night first. Then I need to start the Minority Rules game, and then I'll reveal this maybe Tuesday? I'll let you guys know.

Role of the Day
Illusionist

The Illusionist starts the game with 1 gun (1-shot day vigilante shot). Once per game on any night, the Illusionist may choose a target. If the Illusionist fires their gun during any day phase after having chosen a target, the gun will be revealed as having been fired by the Illusionist's target.
