WWYT w/a twist II?

Discussion in 'Games Run By CPA Members' started by Mooseman, Feb 15, 2011.

  1. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Right now I only have five responses (although Ransac seems to be missing for now anyway).
  2. turgy22 Nothing Special

    That's fine. If I want to get back into this thing, it would be best if no one else responds.
  3. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Well, I may be busy with finals for next few days anyway. Once those are taken care of, I'll post the results of whatever I have, even if it's just Turgy's response (hint: it isn't).
  4. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    You guys, Rokapoke chose all birds and he won! The dude is some kind of magician or something. He was the first one to respond. I saw that it was all birds and thought, "He must have done that on purpose. Cute, but it will put you behind on points when everyone else is all about the mammals." But I was totally wrong. Rokapoke isn't happy about how the last one of these games turned out. He wants revenge and he's gathered an army of his feathered friends to use against us. We're all doomed!

    <sigh> Despite the numerous reminders, I still forgot about actually submitting for this round... :(
  6. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    Hey, there's a perfectly good reason that I chose all birds. All I could think of off the top of my head were the dodo and the passenger pigeon. When I googled "recently extinct animals" (never once thinking along the lines of the wooly mammoth), the only animals I came close to recognizing were birds. Therefore, my answer included five birds.

    Well, I finally get to give a category. I'll give this one a shot.

    Name 5 U.S. colleges or universities that are academically elite.
  7. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    I have responses from most of our participants, but I'll give in another day or two for the slackers among us to submit their answers.
  8. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    Right. Well, apparently I don't give very good categories. I got four co-winners... All of the answers were perfectly fine, upstanding schools -- though apparently only Mooseman recognizes the high academic standards at the US Naval Academy. And Spiderman and Mooseman found out that naming an Ivy League school (or one of the Seven Sisters) doesn't necessarily translate to points.

    I never received answers from EricBess or Ransac, though, so maybe I saved myself from having six co-winners.

    Name 5 U.S. colleges or universities that are academically elite.

    Harvard (6): Turgy22, DarthFerret, Melkor, Oversoul, Spiderman, Mooseman
    Yale (6): Turgy22, DarthFerret, Melkor, Oversoul, Spiderman, Mooseman
    Princeton (5): Turgy22, DarthFerret, Melkor, Oversoul, Spiderman
    Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) (5): Turgy22, DarthFerret, Melkor, Oversoul, Spiderman
    Stanford (4): Turgy22, DarthFerret, Melkor, Oversoul
    Cornell (1): Spiderman
    Brown (1): Mooseman
    Annapolis (1): Mooseman
    Notre Dame (1): Mooseman


    Turgy22: 26 (5)
    DarthFerret: 26 (5)
    Melkor: 26 (5)
    Oversoul: 26 (5)
    Spiderman: 23 (0)
    Mooseman: 15 (0)
    EricBess: 0 (0)
    Ransac: 0 (0)
    Rokapoke: 0 (0)

    Totals:
    Oversoul - 12
    DarthFerret - 12
    Rokapoke - 10
    Turgy - 8
    Melkor - 5
    EricBess - 5
    Mooseman - 3
    Ransac - 3
    Spiderman - 0

    With Oversoul and Darthferret tying for the lead, I guess they can fight over who runs the next round. Hopefully the scoring will be less skewed than in my round...
  9. EricBess Active Member

    Been swamped with work lately. I haven't been on CPA all week...
  10. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    How did I miss this round being posted? I thought I checked this time!

    Ransac, CPA trash man
  11. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    Almost chose Notre Dame, but thought of Stanford at the last minute....glad I did. I do not mind running the next round unless Oversoul wants to do it. But then, that is really up to whatever rules we had outlining this situation (if there were any).
  12. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    If 2 or more people all tie for 5-points, then the person with the most overall points in the game would give the category. If it is still a tie, then the person who last gave the category would select which of them gives the new category (in theory whomever has had fewer opportunities to give the category, but I don't want to have to track that, so we leave it at their discretion).
  13. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    Right then, DF can do it since he hasn't given a category yet.
  14. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    Other than English, name 5 languages spoken in the United States.
  15. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Heh, I actually was grasping with MIT *and* Cornell. I could only really think of Yale, Harvard, and Princeton.
  16. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    Only have 5 responses so far. Will give it until Tuesday to catch the weekend/Monday crowd.
  17. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    Got a response from everyone but the Opera-Man, so here goes the scoring. First time doing this so if there is a mistake, don't lead me to the gallows!

    Spanish (7)
    French (7)
    Chinese/Cantonese/Mandarin (5)
    German (4)
    Italian (3)
    Arabic (2) [How in the heck did 2 people pick this one?]

    And the 1 point answers: Japanese, Portugese, Ebonics, Navajo, Hebrew, Hindi, Vietnamese.

    Oversoul (26) 5 points
    Turgy22 (26) 5 points
    Spiderman (25) 2 points
    Melkor (22) 1 point
    Rokapoke (21)
    Mooseman (20)
    EricBess (19)
    DarthFerret (My topic, I get all the points)
    Ransac (Singing the blues)

    New Standings (provided I did this correctly)

    Oversoul: 17
    Turgy22: 13
    DarthFerret: 12
    Rokapoke: 10
    Melkor: 6
    EricBess: 5
    Mooseman: 3
    Ransac: 3
    Spiderman: 2

    Since Oversoul tied with Turgy for this round, and he is at the top, I give it over to him (and get a chance to catch back up)
  18. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Yee haw, I'm on the board....
  19. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I've been busy with school lately. Sorry for not getting to this earlier. Also for not bothering to come up with a good category...

    Name 5 video games.
  20. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Does this include midget porn?
