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.

Thanks go to the following people. HumanRejection who established the group as a successor to the original Music Elite game. dclbonny, who was co-leader for the first two seasons. (Also, where the leaderboard was stolen from and modified it to fit here ;-) ). lis-sukie who came up with the name for the game, and Axel65 who created the graphics / logo for the group. A respectful thank you and special mention to DaniBaniBoBani_ who was an active and respected member of the group.

    I have pinned the "Overall Scoreboard" as link under "Currently Playing" so I hope everyone finds it much easier.

    Wow, just discovered about the overall scoreboard! Awesome work, Seb! I'm so close to reach the third place where Jd actually is!

    I was kidding, but it would be amazing to see that. If LFM didn't be so idiotic and delete something that wasn't spam in the first place. But oh well.

    Good to know I was wondering why rolandkirk had this amazing advance in points, but now I know that he worked really hard for them.

    Good job updating the overall scores, Seb. I know how long some of that stuff takes :) It is worth pointing out that if you updated that scoreboard from the time I left it, the first 3 seasons of OMG are excluded from it, because they had three completely different scoring systems (winning totals varied between 32 and 194) which would not have made sense adding them in.

    TAB you played this game on regular terms even if you did pause between a few seasons you always came back with mostly 60 points per season. Other groups? :D You must be kidding me.

    Also, Seb, don't forget to acknowledge John's reign in the acknoledgements section of the group :)

    Oh know the doctor is unwell :( Get well soon. Good work seb, I am really surprised I am that high. Now all you need to do, is the overall points for all groups (past and present) under this game :P

    Thanks for appreciating the hours I put into this :) because it took me a while. @Kevin: You are right I knew some people that were usually around weren't there anymore, hopefully you'll get better and find the time to come back to us :). KOC round one will start on Friday, because I need some time for preperation which means rolandkirk isn't in a hurry for his second round.

    Nice work with the scoreboards Seb! In case anyone has been wondering, I've been ill lately and my medication has been making me extremely tired but hopefully I'll be back before the KOC starts.

    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.
