This is the new game where the win is just in the middle. This is...

MEdian


ABOUTThis is a game idea based on a Japanese tabletop game called "QUIZ! Iisen Ikima SHOW!" (Which was not an actual game show, or was it?). It's a simple game where you answer numerical questions in variety of topics, often about some satistics or a poll. For example: "How many people have traveled more than three countries in one month?"

The fact is, there is no correct answer. We don't have enough time to poll everyone in the world or gather a lot of secured data from FBI.

The goal of this game is to be the MEDIAN of everyone's answer, and probably match someone else's answer.

You get points according to how close to the median your answer is, and lose points if you are on the extremes.
You also get points for matching EXACTLY ONE of the other players' answer, but lose points if you match more than that.

At the end of the game, who has the most points wins. Easy, right?


GAMEPLAYUp to 10 people can play each episode (While I would like it to be a full community game, I think having preset episodes look better).

I ask a question, then players PM a numerical answer in a 48-hour time limit. After everyone answered, the answers will be revealed and ordered from lowest to highest Duplicates are treated as one answer in the order. and then points are awarded/deducted by the positions of the answers; THE CLOSER YOU ARE TO THE MEDIAN (very middle position compared to other answers), THE MORE POINTS YOU GET. More points awarded/deducted for duplicate answers.

There are 3 rounds.
ROUND 1 - 5 Questions with point payouts:

Spoiler: MEdian PAYS
ONLY MEDIAN: 1,500 (if there are odd number of non-duplicate answers)
TWO MEDIANS: 1,000 (if there are even number of non-duplicate answers)
EXTREMES (Highest/Lowest): -500
OTHER ANSWERS: 500 - {number of positions away from the median(s)}x100 (So if you're one away from the median, you get 500-(1x100) = 400 points)

Spoiler: MATCH PAYS (Paid in addition to MEdian PAYS)
If your answer matches EXACTLY ONE other player's: +250
If your answer matches MULTIPLE players': -100x(number of players who share this answer)


ROUND 2 - 4 Questions. Point values are DOUBLED
ROUND 3 - Super MEdian - 1 Final Question with TRIPLE values. NOTE: I will play along in this round to give more chances of matching answers. Point payout for matching my answer is as the same as normal rules.

After all 3 rounds, whoever has the most points wins.


EXTRA RULES1. All answers in this game must be an integral number, meaning that no decimal values/fractions allowed (Unless explicitly stated by the question).
2. Try to answer from your thought according to the question. THIS IS NOT GUESS THE AVERAGE®, although this looks really close to it.
3. Some questions have a set range, follow it or you will be treated as a "no answer".
4. Discussions are allowed in-thread only. DO NOT WHISPER. Also, you can say anything, maybe even bluff about your answer. (Be sure to follow the Site Rules, though.)
5. You may change your answer by re-PMing it within the time range.
6. No answer in time suffers a -1000 and one strike in all rounds (not multiplied). 3 strikes and you're removed from the game.
7. Players who played an episode must wait until there are at least 5 non-previous-episode players in the queue to join the queue.
8. HAVE FUN!

Welp, let's try this one I had in my notebook years ago. This look quite similar to Guess the Average, but now it's MEdian instead.

Also, if you want to submit your question suggestions, you may PM me and I'll give you thanks! (The question can be of anything; it only has to be answered with a numerical answer.)

(Fibbage 3 Theme)

MEdian


Welcome to MEdian, where your opinion only matters when you're not on the edge. Actually, winning this game might be a second goal, the first goal is to find a great timing for fart jokes....

(Fart sound)

...Alright, anyway.

Wow, a full house! Great for a game of Mafia where everyone is a mafia, a serial killer and a townie all at once.




ROUND 1


Alright, remember, all answers to each question must be an integer, unless stated by the question.
You get some points by being close to the MEdian and lose if you're on the extremes.
You also win or lose points if you match someone's answer.

Here we go. The category for Question 1 is: MafiaScum Unite!.

So if you check the link of this particular thread, you will see a 5-digit number, which is the thread number.
Based on the number, we can tell that since MafiaScum started on March 2002, until the day this game thread has been started (July 18th, 2018, 2:24 pm GMT+7), we have had a total of 76,893 threads on site.
Wow, that's a lot of B******t over here. Anyway.

QUESTION 1 - MAFIASCUM UNITE!

Make a guess: On January 1st 2020, what number of thread count would MafiaScum reach?

Submit your answers in (expired on 2018-07-22 14:37:30).


Probably more than the number of minutes I've spent in a date with a virtual girlfriend. I tell you, she sucks. I mean bad, not that suck you people. :facepalm:

Remember, THERE ARE NO CORRECT ANSWERS. You just have to give an answer and see if you are in the MEdian.

PM your answers and start talking... Now.

People still remember when I used to run bastard mod games <3

I'd say winning this game despite the game being balanced against us. That was NOT easy, but the mere fact that I worked out how to pull off a win...

My favorite Mafiascum memory is that time I left for a while.

In seriousness though, Telephone Pictonary is always a fun time
