I want to thank everyone for participating in our prediction game summer tour! And just an update on summer tour prizes...My new dyes had came in the mail yesterday so I plan to get some whites soaked this afternoon and start tying and dying this weekend!
I've come to the conclusion the game is just getting to be too much to handle. With all the new players and the long list of songs we pick I thought it was time for a change. This would make it easier to play and much easier to score as well as avoid any controversy there may be. Straws brought to my attention a new version of a set list prediction game. Which I think will be great! I thought I would share with you and as a whole so we can make the changes we see are needed.
The new format will be to pick a 1st Set Opener and Closer; 2nd Set Opener and Closer, and of course an encore! Plus we decided to add some bonus picks in the mix to help get more points!
This is where I need your help.
How many bonus picks do we want? 5, 7, or 11? Also next to your bonus pick do we want to be able to guess the set it will be played in or extra encore for an extra point?
Here is an example of what it should look like.
1O} Jack Straw
2O} Help on the Way
2X} Not Fade Away
E} U.S. Blues
1} Loser (Set 1)
2} Terrapin Suite (Set 2)
3} Franklin's Tower (Set 2)
4} Birdsong (Set 1)
5} Looks Like Rain (Set 1)
All correct answers in the correct spot will be worth 2 points and everything correct but not in the correct spot will be worth 1 point. Does anyone want to change this?
Also I think it will be good to set some ground rules so we are all on the same page. Like....
-Do we want to count Jam as a song?
-Reprises count or no?
-Terrapin should count for all parts of the song?
-Sunshine Daydream does not count if played after Sugar Magnolia (it does if on it's own).
-WRS doesn't count if just Let it Grow was played.
Please feel free to give your input! This is a community project after all!
