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.

    Just wanted to say that I'm not going to be participating in the game indefinitely due to these issues: http://www.last.fm/forum/34905/_/2235446 (it doesn't really seem fair to be playing when my scrobbles might not be accurate)

    Unless its changed, it doesn't matter on what band you know by name. As long you know of the name...but may have changed. I normally stay clear of multi artists during OMG ect as you are likely to be in this situation of they don't know what I know.

    What is OMG's policy on bands that have the same name but are from completely different genres when it comes to the knockout round?

    @Kusavil : The problem was with my version of Firefox (29.0). Greasemonkey 2.1 works great with Firefox 31.0. Sorry for messing your mind up.

    Atarax mailed us in his group http://www.last.fm/group/Smart+Eclectic, so i think he should get extra points on the leaderboard for promoting the game.

    I use Greasemonkey 2.1 from some time already, you think I should downgrade it? Is it some serious matter?
