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.

    Scrobbling with audio players MUST works after the beta launch! I mean, It's a completely fuck-up if that doesn't happen! Many music I listen to aren't on Spotify or elsewhere!!!

    My music player foobar2000 has stopped scrobbling quite a while ago already. I mainly use Spotify and Bandcamp with Groovin' Greasy Scrobbler for automatic scrobbling and Universal Scrobbler for manual scrobbling (e.g. for the stuff I listen to in the car).

    I had a chuckle to myself whilst watching hard talk a couple nights ago. I was thinking rolandkirk deleted due to the pressure of this interview. (even though I think he is from just outside Paris.)

    I hope rolandkirk sees our concerns and decides to come back!

    Now a statement from the Chief OMG Intelligence Service Officer on the update of the disappearence of much loved rolandkirk...*clears throat* "We are still looking into possible leads in the whereabouts of the legend known only as rolandkirk. However, we have no further concrete evidence to reveal his whereabouts currently. We can only appeal through this public statement to anyone, anyone who might have seen this man to report it to the OMGIS immediately through the usual channels. That is all, thank you"
