    Anyone interested? Anyone know what "sheep" is?

    The idea of the game is to give answers which match your fellow players' answers. Scoring depends on the amount of like answers.

    Example:
    Q1 - Favorite burrito meat?
    Player 1 - Carne Asada
    P2 - chicken
    P3 - chicken
    P4 - Pollo
    P5 - Carnitas
    P6 - steak

    If the above answers were given, the scoring would look like so:
    3 points for players 2, 3, and 4
    2 points for players 1 and 6 (since I would make a judgement that carne asada and steak are the same)
    1 point for player 5

    Typically a game will consist of 10-20 questions. Playing is very simple as all you have to do is answer the questions. Scoring/running the game is a bit more difficult, but not that bad.

    There is another variant call revere sheep or "peehs" where the players try to give answers that the others wont give. This one is typically harder to play (requires a bit more thinking) and harder to run as the person running the game has to give questions which have a defined set of answers. Scoring in this one is like golf where the lowest score wins.

    SO.......... anyone up for a game? If I get atleast 8 people interested, I post up some questions and run the first M/A sheep game.

    If you keep the questions based around food, I believe there is a group here that will jump right on that. You might want to start with "Donuts". :lol::lol:

    I saw Mini and Sheep and thought this would be right up my alley. Alas it does not seem that way.

    It lasted for more than 4200 episodes. So, quite a while imo.

    Wow, that's a lot. Does Nathan have the resources or the life expectancy to handle a game that could last that long?

    4200/365=11.5 years

    I hope I have the life expectancy.

    I've always said I'm into M/A for the long haul.
