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. The group is hugely greatful to Rob (temujin1234) for running the group so succesfully for 31 seasons.

    Well except the YouTube players but that doesn't matter to me since I've been listening to Spotify in order to attempt making a mark on our Official Charts.

    well that's a bit disadvantageous to me then because vk bands have a habit of picking really obvious names like "Fire" or "Satan". whatever i'll deal w/ it.. been kicked out the last 3 rounds anyway >_>

    If it did work like that then it could take an hour to do a round investigating who did what track. It would also lead to people claiming incorrect kicks.

    it doesn't work like that. multiple artist names doesn't matter which one as long as you know one you are kicked for it.
