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.

    @Promonex ---> I think I was the kicker when you won with Alligatoah! I barely listen to rap (with the only exception of Horrorcore), for sure I would not listen to German rap! I just know Absolute Beginner because when I did my Erasmus one guy from Munich was totally into their music!

    Haha okay this might be a good reason too and yes Alligatoah isn't that obscure, even I know about him. Okay looks like this is the usual case no wonder that some of those artists get mentioned in my journal although I haven't connected them so far.

    I rarely care about the artist I've played last when becoming champion. Else you wouldn't have had to add Alligatoah who's really not obscure for all the Germans around here. Maybe that person just likes the artist he listened to so much that he'd listen to the very same artist again?

    The problem is that I don't get why some of those connections are already there in the journal as if someone tries to win with the same artist every once in a while, but thanks for seeing that, I will correct this.

    bordervoids (with brackets written) got connected twice in the journal?

    In the good old days, you had ghost tags, ghost links and group links in your journals. All would just put it on the artist or group pages on the top of their screen.

    It might be LFM changing it since I did that.

    I did do that but the group tag doesn't work for me so I used the url tag, but when I visit an artist page, there are zero connected groups, even though I added the group link. Hmm, maybe I did something wrong?

    Well, it also connects the group if you link the group within the journal. I think, that's how it used to work before.

    Oh thanks a lot :) I just realized I could connect / disconnect the artists from Season 42, although the journal appears on every artistpage it's well hidden, only if you search for journals you will find ours with the connected artists, what I want to say is, it's quite unlikely that new members will join because of finding the journal, but heck its worth a shot and better as the old archive.
