TD: 257 - Guess the Theme: Comedy Edition

Post by Ryno » Mon Aug 17, 2015 10:10 am

Welcome to TD: 257 - Guess the Theme: Comedy Edition

This TD’s theme is on themes themselves. There are 10 questions. In each question you will select among a variety of options (e.g. A, B, C…) and select one answer. Each question will have a theme based on a common attribute shared by all of the possible answers. So pay attention to all of the options provided. Along with your basic answer you will also guess the common theme for each question. For an example see TD 248, my last “Guess the Theme” game. This time around there is an overall “meta” theme that encompasses the game: Comedy :lol: .

Base Scoring
Give correct answers that match as few of the other players as possible. The higher your score the better. On each question you may score:
5 points = Singleton! (one player with a particular correct answer)
3 points = Doubleton (two players with the same correct answer)
2 points = Correct answer that is not a Singleton, Doubleton or SHEEP.
0 points = Incorrect answers, or SHEEP (most common correct answer)

Guess the Theme
For each question, guess the theme. If you get the theme correct your score will be Doubled!
For example if you get a Singleton! then get the theme correct you will score 10 points (5 x 2 = 10). Unfortunately, if you get the question incorrect or “sheep out” getting the theme right won’t help you (0 x 2 = 0). So you can see that guessing the theme is a big part of the game. A perfect score for the game is 100 points (10 singletons plus getting all of the themes right).

• There are no drops, so answer all questions and guess the themes.
• Minor spelling or title discrepancies are OK, I’ll be somewhat flexible.
• Tie-breaker will be based on order of entry.
• No external help (e.g. Google, Wikipedia).


Submit your responses to me by PM. Do not post your answers on this message thread.

Also, please send notices of errors & typos over to me via PM, and I'll fix it. :roll:

Due by Monday August, 24 at Noon EST.

I have stared at it long enough. I think I have 5 and that's good enough for me to wave the white flag and submit.

Looks like we're tied then. And I'm not too confident of even the one.

Yeah I haven't submitted yet because I'm quite stuck myself. As much as I thought my music knowledge overlapped well with Ryno, it appears my comedy knowledge does not. Every time I try to go back to these lists, I don't find anything new. I'm at 5 themes, a 6th I have a guess at ... but there are two questions where I have 9 and 7 answers, respectively, yet just can't see it. I should just stop torturing myself and submit with what I have. :p

I think I can guess why that is. I am optimistic since, on most TDs, I do better on questions where I know fewer answers.

This one was quite challenging, which is a good thing. I can't wait to find out some of the answers.

Thanks, Ryno.

I'm kind of surprised at the low number of entries, even though these questions were a bit on the tough side.
I think the theme part is what is giving everyone the most difficulty. I stared at those options for days, and kept having to give it up to clear my brain. In the end I just had to be content with submitting my answers and not worry about the themes. I only managed to decifer two for sure.
It will be interesting to see what the get rate will be for just the themes. I'm looking forward to just finding out what they are as much as the scoring outcome.

Ditto. Usually, within 10 minutes of submitting my answers, I know all the answers I've missed. Not so in this particular game.

I'm a big fan of the 'guess the theme' component of these games. As for difficulty, well, there are plenty of places out there to find easier ones.

Even after looking up some of the answers later on, I still have no clue what the theme to question 9 is.
