Think Different the Fifth: Never Too Late

Postby Tailsfan101 » Thu Jun 28, 2018 3:36 pm

Here's a game that hasn't been around for a while, but I'm willing to bring it back (again)! To see previous threads, here's #1: The Trial (by lumosityfan), #2: The Return (by me), #3: The Third One (by Froggie), and #4: I'm Back (also by me).

How it works:
1. You have 10 questions that you try to get the correct answer to.
2. The catch is that the goal is to get the fewest number of points. The way you earn points is for each correct answer you answer, you will earn the number of points equal to the number of people who guessed that answer. So for instance if an answer you give to Question 1 is Thomas Jefferson and 3 other people guessed that answer, you would earn 3 points for that question. If you get the answer wrong, you earn the number of points equal to the number of participants plus 5 points. So choose wisely!
3. There are two bonuses you could use to replace an answer: DROP and SHEEP. DROP means you earn 0 points for that question. SHEEP means you earn the number of points equal to the answer that the most people answered. So for instance, if the correct answers were 5, 2, 3, and 4, and 7 people guessed 5, 6 people guessed 2, 3 people guessed 3, and 2 people guessed 4, then the people who said SHEEP would earn 7 points for the answer. You get only 1 of each bonus if you so choose to use them.
4. PM me your responses by Friday, July 13th 8:00 PM EDT. Any answers PMed after that point will not be considered. You have two whole weeks.
5. Make sure not to cheat please. I know that's pretty obvious. But if I catch you, your answers will be disqualified immediately and you will be unable to participate ever again. (Everyone else will compensate for their answers by losing some points accordingly. You're welcome.)
6. Users can change their answers before the due date arrives, but after the due date, answers may not be changed.

The questions are in the next post.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I got all 3 of those right, and so did everyone else besides John. So how do me and Anomaly have 6 while east and them only have 4. I might be missing something, but I don't understand how this happened.

In the first question, you earned three points because you were one of three people who gave the same answer. The same goes for earning one and two points in the next two questions.
