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.

    @TAB: Maybe he said some bad stuff about the new last.fm version to the staff, and YOU know where bad blood with lastfm staff ends up ;D

    Ouch why would he do that without saying goodbye? He never even said anything about quitting the game / last.fm

    52 times champion as well and a nuber of other accolades from all generations of this game. A great sport and, yes sad to see him go. Hopefully may return but I figure rolandkirk is a very thoughful character and thought hard before clicking the deletion button. (unlike someone I know ;))

    I really hope he comes back soon! It's strange thinking this game and Last fm without him! I also hope that nothing bad happened to him!

    Good to know I'm not the only one. My foobar also stopped scrobbling, but I didn't really bother as I'm using Spotify, Bandcamp (in combination with Groovin' Greasy Scrobbler) and my car stereo (in combination with Universal Scrobbler) most of the time.

    I really thought they wouldn't destroy the live version while working on the beta version but I guess I was wrong about this. Well this sucks, because spotify is the last service I will ever use. New beta version feels like nothing much has changed, don't even feel encouraged enough to use the beta again for feedback purposes.

    Edit: Spotify seems to be the only working submission source atm :p
