Think Different 225: Will You Sheep Out?

Post by Lumosityfan » Sun Jan 04, 2015 7:48 pm

Welcome to Think Different 225, hosted by me, lumosityfan! As you know, Think Different contains lots of twists and turns that make people wonder why this answer is popular and why that answer got a singleton. Well, I digged up an old TD, barandall800's "Think Un-Different". I thought it would be neat to re-do the premise of that TD and make the sheeps the high-scoring points. So, will you sheep out?

Here are the rules (slightly altered from TDs of days past):
1. Normally the goal of the game is to get correct answers that as little people as possible answered as well. Well, this time around, the goal is to aim for the most popular answer, similar to Match Game.
2. Scoring goes as follows:
a. For each correct answer, you will receive one point for the amount of people who answered that correct answer.
b. For each incorrect answer, you will receive 0 points.
3. There will be no drops, but there will be one BANDWAGON, for which question you will receive a value equal to half the number of entrants rounded up.
4. You can only use what's in your noggin. No cheating! (Or else pay $15,000 to the Jboard.tv Bank with 25% interest. Your choice.)(Yes, I know that doesn't exist, but still.)
5. All answers MUST be sent in via PM BY Monday, January 12, 2015 at 7:00 PM EST.
6. Tiebreakers go as follows: whether used BANDWAGON, number of sheeps, number of singletons (in other words, less is better), and entry order ranked by time of most recent revision (if you choose to do so).
6. Above all else, have fun!

Grand Slam in tennis refers to winning all four majors. Originally it meant withing a single calendar year, although the definition has since been expanded to include career Grand Slams. Are you referring to a major tournament or a Grand Slam? If the latter, which kind?

It means even if someone won only one Australian Open, for instance, that person would be fair game for a correct answer.

I just noticed this game and decided to create an account here to play, but now I'm told I don't have the privileges to send a PM.

Anyone have any ideas?

In the "Read this first" thread, it states that you need to have 3 posts before you can send PM's. You just need 2 more posts.

Re: Jeopardy! Superchampion

I take it this means people who have won six or more games (and not five)?
