Arrow WSOS Event #3: Double Sheep | Reveal June 21st

This is the third event of the World Series Of Sheep 2017.

This game is open to everyone, whether you have played previous events or not.


This is a regular game of sheep, with a small twist. Your goal for each question is to give the answer most submitted by everyone else. You get points for matching with other people and the highest score wins!

The twist: Give two different answers for each question. Please do this by sending two separate PMs each with a list of 10 answers, labelled "Entry 1" & "Entry 2" or similar.

Each entry counts toward your score

To enter: Private message me an unnumbered list of answers in the order asked below. Twice!

Research is allowed

Feel free to PM me any questions if you are unsure of anything


Name:
  1. Something fragile
  2. A male US politician that has never been president
  3. A rugby player
  4. A province or region of China
  5. A game you might find in an arcade
  6. A supergroup (i.e. a music group whose members were already successful as solo artists or as part of other groups)
  7. A new technology
  8. A vegetable that grows above ground
  9. Something that is extinct
  10. A country with a coastline on the Mediterranean Sea

Remember: Two entries per person with two different answers for each question! It makes my life much easier if you do this in two separate PMs, so it can be automated

Reveal June 21st

GL and have fun

Re: WSOS Event #3: Double Sheep | Reveal June 21st

Question: if I submit an answer in my second PM that would have sheeped if I used it in the first PM, but aces because it's in the second, do I only get one point?

Both of your answers count, and both receive their own score. Your score for that question is the two combined.

I'll throw together an example, one minute.

Entries are slowly coming in for this one, hopefully the double-entry concept isn't too confusing...

People will enter a 200Q sheep, complaining all the while. Ask them for two entries to a regular sheep, and it's too much.

Reminders sent to everyone who played the previous two games but has yet to enter this one.

I hope I'm not annoying anyone with PMs
