Hello all. If you are interested in hosting a round of Lounge Quizzes '15 can you please POST IN THIS THREAD, with your chosen quiz format and if possible any information on when you'll be able to host it. Your application will be carefully considered. I don't know if anyone other than Regina actually applied via PM after the thread was posted a few weeks back but if so please do apply again because I am not yet aware of your application ~

A quick run through of the main quiz formats, with an example of each linked:

FAMILY FORTUNES (exempli gratia)
In which you set about ten questions and people try to give the answer they think will be the most popular. One point for each other person who gives the same answer. Google allowed.

POINTLESS (exempli gratia)
In which you set about ten questions and people try to give a correct answer they think will be the least popular. Scored the same way as FF except the aim of the game is to score as few points as possible, and an incorrect answer is punished with DEATH the maximum number of points it would be possible to score on that question. Google allowed.

NEVER MIND THE BUZZJACKS (exempli gratia)
In which you select a small portion of about twenty songs, edit them all together into a SoundCloud and people try to name what the songs are. One point for each correctly identified song. The set up for this is a little more technical than the rest, but luckily RabbitFurCoat went to the effort of writing up some simple and easy to follow instructions from back when this was a regular thing. Google is rather useless for this unless the host is silly enough to include vocals in the song segments. Use of SoundHound et al is just cheating, you might get 20 points but you'll lose 20 points from your SOUL so don't do that.

ALBUM COVER PUZZLE (exempli gratia)
In which you crop a small portion from about twenty album covers and people try to name the album from which each portion was cropped. The host sets a points value for each album depending on how difficult they deem it to be to get the answer correct. A correct answer scores that number of points. Google is again a bit useless here.

Those are the CLASSICS so to speak but I am more than willing to let people host something a bit different. If you have a novel idea for a quiz that you want to run please go for it, it might even mean you are given priority for hosting ohmy.gif

Could you elaborate a bit on how this would work? It seems like something that would be a bit ruined by the ability to Google things. I also assume it would have to be some sort of live event rather than one where people have a week to respond like the others, though this isn't necessarily a problem.

I'm still not completely sure how it would work but The Weakest Link (the most iconic game show) needs to be brought to the lounge and I wouldn't mind being Anne Robinson *_

Maybe some sort of tinychat video conference could work? Everything would be happening live and therefore Googling abilities will be useless~

I'd be happy to host a name that song competition with the idea being taking songs old and new and cutting them down to 5second clips of each song and getting people to guess what songs they are, though I guess the length of the clips could be changed if 5 Seconds is too short or too long.

Yes! biggrin.gif
I've thought of that before but I didn't think I had the motivation to download the songs, cut them in Audacity, put them in a video editing software, upload them to YouTube and set it all up drama.gif
