GAME :: Heard it?

Post by Behemoth » Fri Oct 05, 2012 7:12 am

Thinking of hosting a film quiz to loosely coincide with Luxtoberfest.

Heard it? is the name of the game.

Players will be supplied clues and attempt to identify which films they refer to. There's nothing fancy about this format or theme I know, you've probably played one of em' before, they breed like flies on networking sites. Clues are typically in the form of trivial-pursuit type questions, memorable film quotes or photos of actors or scenes from a movie.

But how good is your memory for sound? Image

You can expect to have that put to the test by the clues in this quiz, each of which contain a brief extract from a film's sound track. The challenge will be auditory; use your ears to correctly name the film.

Questions?

* The clues will be supplied as sound files, playable on PC's, Macs and portables. Contestants will receive clues via pm.
To avoid any 'back-seat player' interference I'll refrain from posting the clues in the game thread until after all players have submitted their answers or the timer runs out.
I'll post a notification in the game thread each time a clue is sent out.

* No additional hints, written or pictorial will be given.

* The sound extracts will not be altered or edited in any way from their source material.

* Clues will be selected from a variety of film genres; action, drama, comedy, romance, science fiction, etc.
All films will have had cinema releases and been in circulation for a reasonable period.
Obscure films will not be included.

* This is not a 'Do you know that quote?' quiz. Some clues may not include dialogue at all.

* Musical scores and theme songs will not be the focus of the quiz.
For clues that contain music, identifying the name of the track or musician is neither here nor there (Unless it assists players in placing which film it appeared in)

* A timer will be in effect. (I'll be mindful players live in different time zones)

* Correct answers will not be revealed until the completion of the game.

Anyway, that's it in a nutshell. If you think you’ve probably heard it, sign up!

I'll give it a whirl, behemoth!

(Ouch poor choice of words for a forum game. No I'll lose in the first round.)

A warm welcome to the sign-ups.

Here's a sample <a href="http://s766.photobucket.com/albums/xx30 ... 4">clue</a> to give players and potential sign-ups a sense of what's in store.

I'd rate this one as moderately difficult. If you think you know the film by all means post your answer.
As previously mentioned, the quiz clues will be sent to players via pm and only posted in the thread after all players have submitted answers or the timer runs out.

What winners look like.

The shock, confusion, embarrassment and depression you're experiencing is just temporary wontrob, next up is panic, resentment, anger and denial.

Seriously though, the sample clue's a tough one.

/me applauds coon for taking a punt but suggests he guess again.

I want to say I've never seen this movie. The noise is really unique. So is the chuckle at the end.

Be great to have another 5 or so sign-up; registration is still open for anyone interested. Either way, players should start thinking with their ears already - Round 1 has begun.

Image
Links to 8 clues for this round have been sent via pm to players. Two more rounds will follow with approximately 20-25 clues to answer in total. The clues range in difficulty. If you find yourself stumped, a best guess is better than nothing.

A 72 hour time limit per round feels about right. I won't set a limit on this round just yet, not until registration closes... so you can do your listening at a leisurely pace.

/me encourages coon to keep speculating.

Probably goes without saying... the thread isn't an ideal place for posting your answers, send them to me via pm.

When I have all players answers (or timer runs out) I'll post the clues in the thread and begin the next round.

Headphones are your friends. Background noise and subtle sounds won't be as clear (or audible at all) when coming out of your computer's in-built speakers. :smt020

/me also thinks n00bless can do better than 2, assuming he's got that many.

Hmm. If you wish to have another player I'm up for trying... Although trying might be the extent of it. I'm not particularly GREAT with my movies.

Sure I'll pm you the clues.

They've been taken from a variety of different genres, some made more recently than others. They've certainly all had audiences - that is to say you'll know of these films even if you haven't seen them. Good luck!

:smt018 That would be breaking the fundamental laws of trivial quizzes. No, in short.

However... I'll grant the first player who correctly answers the sample <a href="http://s766.photobucket.com/albums/xx30 ... 4">clue</a> a 'Guess Again Card', transferrable for one incorrect answer submitted.

Players must post their answers to the sample <a href="http://s766.photobucket.com/albums/xx30 ... 4">clue</a> in the thread, not via pm. Three guesses for this one is permitted. Milltycoon's already had two.

So far so good for you though Mud. :bang:

Players please note a cut-off time for Round 1 has now been set. All answers need to be submitted by Tues 10pm EST. I'm assuming everyone resides in North America?

This is a lazy first round, players won't have as much time in the following rounds.

Sign-ups are still welcome! :mrgreen:

Is anyone NOT going to get number 4? My bet is everyone will.
