    OLYMPIC EVENT 8: ELEPHANT SHEEP

    OLYMPIC EVENT 8: ELEPHANT SHEEP

    The rules are: You must try to match as many other people as possible with your answers to various questions. The one extra wrinkle in an Elephant SHEEP; each response must start with the letter the previous response ended with. 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.

    Similar answers may be grouped together at host's discretion. I guarantee that adding nonsense letters to the beginning or end of an answer to allow it to flow into your preceding or next answer will NOT be grouped.

    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 with the subject "Elephant Sheep."

    The questions:
    1. A Mafia Universe Staff Member
    2. A Role in the game of Mafia
    3. A number (spelled out, of course)
    4. A movie you can't believe everyone hasn't seen it
    5. A new thing picked up due to quarantine
    6. An animal
    7. A plant
    8. A beverage
    9. Something you find on the breakfast table
    10. A professional sport
    11. An app on your device
    12. A Celebrity




    YOUR ENTRY SHOULD LOOK LIKE THIS:

    apple
    electric
    coca-cola
    Annapolis
    Space Jam
    Major
    Red
    Down
    November
    Routine
    Ethyl
    Lemon
    Nope
    etc.

    [i.e. NO spaces between each answer!!!]
    Deadline: August 2nd @ 10 PM EST (and reveal hopefully the day after)

    Every elephant I've ever played you need to have the start beginning letter, ending letter and meaning to be grouped.

    Eg if the question is "something you eat" and player 1 says "cookie" and player 2 says "chocolate chip cookie" then a nice mod might group them

    Let's use Xander's sheep as an example. The first question is "Name an ice cream flavor" and the second question is "name a movie that's so bad it's good". In Xander's sheep I botched question one by saying Cookies n Cream instead of the sheep answer Chocolate. I was able to sheep question two with "The Room" though.

    In this event, going off the rails on question one would make it where I can't get back on track for question two. I would be picking a movie that starts with M while all the Q1 sheep players are starting with an E. So if you get off track you can't just get back into it on the next few questions. You're off the rails until the last letters happen to line up again.

    Because I've gotten a number of submissions that aren't following this particular rule, I'm going to remind everyone to double-check their entries before submitting. This is your only chance to a do over, and only if your entry fails to meet this standard.

    Deadline has now come and gone and so Submissions are now closed.

    I'm off to bed, and I will begin compiling the data in the morning.

Role of the Day
Hider

The Hider may each night hide behind a target. If the target is mafia, the Hider will die. If the target is town, the Hider will be untargetable by any and all night actions on that night. If the target is town and the target is shot, both the Hider and the target will die.
