TD 391 - Game Time (Final results)

Post by clt013 » Mon Aug 13, 2018 10:23 am

This TD is called "Game Time" and the question titles are games you might play with family and/or friends.

Rules/Notes
1) Lowest point total wins; your score for each question is equal to the total number of players submitting that same answer
2) You may use one drop and take zero points for that question
3) You may elect to take the sheep answer for one question
4) There is no bonus for not using the "drop" or "sheep", so you probably want to take the former and get a zero for one question
5) Wrong responses are the higher of either +10 points or the "sheep" answer +3
6) Letter preferred = If your response is among the right answers for a particular question yet does not include a letter or has the wrong letter, it will be judged as correct with a +2 "penalty" added to your total.
7) All answers are due by 8 AM Central time on Wednesday, August 22, 2018
8) Submit answers via this Google form or PM

Nothing for A-F, while those words in the proper order at G will reveal the "prize".

For the Scattegories bonus....am I supposed to name as many teams starting with the same letter, or just 12 different starting letters? i.e. if you had asked for NHL teams, would I do:

Blackhawks, Blues, Blue Jackets, Brontosaurus

or would I do

Avalanche, Blues, Flames, Whalers, Jets, etc
I eat chicken. That's what I do.

Up to 12 different starting letters - like your second example.

I really hosed this one. I thought I had to find 3 states/capitals that started with the same letter, and I could earn 12 points if there were enough correct answers (I think it's only about 6 or 7 and I got 5 triples). It was just gettable enough to make me do the road trips for every letter. I've now been spoiled by looking at a list (it was addictive). Can I go ahead and PM some sports teams? I might just take my 1 point and fuggedaboutit, it was fun, and that's what counts. :lol:

(edit - I PM'd an alternate reply, still enjoying this one either way. Thank you!)

While I've already submitted my responses (and didn't choose this bonus option), it might help some other people to ask:

Is this only CURRENT MLB/NFL teams, or can they be from any era? mennoknight's usage of the Whalers brought this up for me.

More specifically, I assume current teams AND nicknames? Since by one definition of current teams, the Whalers example could still technically work for NHL, since they still exist, they're just the Hurricanes.

Current teams and nicknames.

I tried to keep this simple, but appear to have failed miserably.

Real nicknames, or nicknames we only made up for purposes of this game? :D
