Arrow Levels Sheep (Series?) - Reveal Sunday the 18th

A new idea that I'd like to try. I guarantee to run a few of these to let strategies play, but if interest continues, I'll run a weekly series for an indeterminate amount of time.

The game is pretty much combining sheep, heep, and peehs. The most popular answer gets penalized and the least popular answer gets rewarded.

Research Allowed but lol research.

Top answer, gets 30% of normal points.
Second answer gets 80% of point
Third answer gets 150% of points
Fourth answer gets 240% of points
Fifth answer gets 350% of points
Sixth answer gets 480% of points
Seventh answer gets 650% of points

Incorrects Score 0
Highest points wins.

Our questions:
1) Name one of the first 10 elements on the periodic table.
2) Name one of the first 15 US States
3) Name one of the first 15 US Presidents
4) Name a current NBA team.

Reveal Sunday the 18th.

Re: Levels Sheep (Series?) - Reveal Sunday the 18th

Admittedly this sounds complicated, but it's pretty easy with an example.
Lets pretend these are the answers for Question 1.


Question 1: An element

helium - 5
AlwaysFolding
ArcticKnight
BiteMeFish
Booker Wolfbox
carolinacoder

hydrogen - 4
JMurder3
Precept2
rtspurs
warped

boron - 3
SunTzu
limon
garick

ACES:

oxygen - kokiri
lithum - iraisetoomuch

Top score: 5 * 30% = 1.5 points
Second score: 4 * 80% = 3.2 points
Third score: 3 * 150% = 4.5 point
Fourth score: 1 * 240% = 2.4 points

In the event that multiple answers have the same number of responses, % bonus will be averaged and split except for Aces which will always get the bonus better than the last non-Ace answer.
So if we introduce

nitrogen - 3
shadowdodger
sunrunner
waltwhitman

Top score: 5 * 30% = 1.5 points
Second score: 4 * 80% = 3.2 points
Third score: 3 * 195% = 5.85 point
Fourth score: 3 * 195% = 5.85 points
Fifth score: 1 * 350% = 3.5 points

But the general question is:
Do you go for an obvious sheep and take a penalty.
Or do you go for an Ace and hope to get a nice bonus.

I'll be honest, this probably won't happen until tomorrow night.
Lots of things to get done today.
