Game The Username Game

Hey! Back in 2013, I was introduced to a forum game called "The Username Game". It was similar in style to the classic 60's show "The Dating Game", except the goal was not to find a date, but to correctly guess who the mystery contestants were. I thought it would be fun to bring here, but I've never ran it before, so I'm just going to run one test round and see how it goes.

THE USERNAME GAME

it's pretty simple.

THE RULES:
  • There are three "contestants" and one "host".
  • The contestants remain anonymous, trying to keep their identity secret from the host.
  • The host asks the three contestants one question every round, trying to figure out who each of the contestants are.

  • The contestants must answer honestly, and cannot avoid the question. This is at the discresion of the person running the game (me), and the host. If a contestant has been determined to be lying, they automatically lose.
  • In between each round, after the contestants have answered the question, the host gets one guess. If they can correctly identify the contestant's identity, that contestant is out of the game.
  • Play continues until there is only one contestant left. After that, the host can ask one more question before making a final guess.
  • If the host cannot guess the final contestant's identity, that contestant wins!
  • Additionally, if any player's identity is incorrectly guessed more than 5 times, they automatically win.
Any questions about the rules should be brought to me via DM, to preserve anonymity. My job in running the game is to collect responses from the host and contestants. Each rounds question will be posted by the host, but the answers from the contestants will be posted by me.

HOW DO I PLAY?

Sign up here: form

The contestants and the host will be chosen with a random number generator after a sufficient number of responses has been collected.

Good luck!

Let the game begin!

Our host for this game is Shpeckly.
Our three contestants will only be known as Tango, Caravan, and Jerry.


Who are they? No one knows (yet).

If you were not picked to be a contestant or host, do not worry! Half the fun of this game is trying to beat the host to the punch of figuring out who the contestants are. Shpeckly can ask questions of the audience for clues, and I will be taking polls later in the game for the audience to input who they think the true identities of our contestants are! If you want to stay updated, watch this thread!

Without further ado, here is the host's first question:
"Assuming you have been on a Minr VC, describe the funniest moment during a call in the past year. "

Good luck and have fun!
