Welcome to Obscure Music Game.

Welcome to Obscure Music Game. The object of the game is to avoid being kicked out for listening to music that the other members are familiar with. You get to be champion by becoming the oldest surviving member, then it's your turn to kick other members out. Best player over 30 rounds becomes season champion. The game is the successor to The Music Elite, with the extra competition of a points system and league table.
New players.

Don't be discouraged if you get kicked soon (or often) after you join. It takes some time to get familiar with what music the other players know, so give it a few tries before deciding the game is not for you. Don't worry about joining in the middle of a season, you will be given some starter points to compensate for the rounds you missed. Note that you must have your recently played tracks set to ""public"" to play this game. If you are unwilling to do so, you should not join.

How to play.
The game is played as a series of rounds, each of which is held within 24 hours of it's being opened. A full season consists of 30 rounds. Each round will be carried out by either the current champion, the group leader or occasionally a guest. At some point the member page is opened, and the person doing the round inspects the artist each member is currently listening to, or their most recently listened artist. They then kick out any members whose music falls foul of these rules.
  • If they have heard music before by that artist.
  • If the member has not listened to music in the last 72 hours.
  • if the member is listening to the same band as another member.
The full rules, details of the scoring system, champions duties and other information about the game can all be found in this thread.

    Two ranks under HerenIstarion. I still remember that guy. I had actually listened to one hour of that Russian podcast, so I could kick him when I'd become champion the next time. Apparently Andy did the same =)

    Overall Scoreboard can be viewed in the Links and Scoreboards for all previous seasons thread when you scroll down you will find the link to the Overall Scoreboard. Please be aware that after Season 23 no additional points were added to the Overall Scoreboard just those points which were made during the seasons 24 - 41. Have fun with it.

    Does anyone know if the "message all users" function really works? That would save me so much time instead of writing one mail to five users and wait five minutes.

    Okay finally I am starting to see the difference between "champion", "season champion" and "KOC champion" wasn't that easy for a newcomer like me, but I have updated the groupoverview. Also big news, I am starting to update the Overall OMG scoreboard, but this needs time and I won't let get you access to it until it's up to date with Season 41. This is a boring and time intensive job, so don't expect any updates real soon.

    Haha I see now that you are not busy enough :P. By the way I already have said that in your MKC group but your KOC rules are very nice, too.

    just for your own information the scoreboard might change again after I have sorted out some obscurities. I already have sent Rob a message about the special points section, but if you find an error please message me with an explanation where and why! Thank you have a fun evening.

    5 users each message. If they are not your friends, you can send two 5's every 5 minutes.
