Hello Adey

I'd like to choose the following theme for game 213:

Especially For You

Submit a song as a gift for another BSG player, something you think they would enjoy a great deal (it can be anyone who's ever played the song game).
When you send your nomination to Adey, include the name of the recipient of your gift please.

Enjoy the game (and your potential present)!

THE ORIGINS OF THE GAME

Some time ago one of the nicest guys on the forum Sergio (sfar) tested out an idea he had for a Song Game, which involved people nominating a song – then at the end of it the songs were listed and people voted on their top three songs.

A few months later, as a Eurovision Song Contest nut, I had the thought of bringing the Eurovision element into it along with the voting system used there. We jointly once did some TT Olympic and TT Football specials and always made a great team so I checked with Sergio that he was OK for me to expand on his original idea, which he was, along with adding an interactive element of an interview with all participants about the songs and the game in general where everyone could put forward ideas and suggestions about the game, it's all really thanks to Sergio that this game started :worship: .

I once did a TT Eurovision special and gave the winner a heart-attack when I informed him that the Eurovision tradition is that the winner hosts the following year - instead the winner picks the next category.

Following that on 14th November 2013, the first ever TF Pick The Best Song Game was started.





HOW TO JOIN IN AND PLAY THE GAME


1. Send me a PM with any song that relates to the category above - along with the You Tube link if possible – MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE SONGS USED LIST TO CHECK THAT THE SONG HASN’T BEEN USED BEFORE

2. Make clear which is the song title and which is the artist.

3. When the deadline is over, I'll post all the songs in the thread (without the name of the user who sent it) for everyone to vote.

4.The song that gets the most points wins the game. In the event of a tie the song with the most 12 points will win, if that number is the same then it's the most 10 and so on.


For those who haven’t played before, anyone is welcome to play – here’s a link to all previous games which are housed at the TF Pick The Best Song Game Sub-Forum to see how it works :-

Now, seriously asking: It has to be a song that you really don't expect your chosen player to know?

Great idea but you know what will happen? Someone(s) will be left out with no gifts :eek:h: or a gift may be sent for someone who doesn't even enter the game!

no, it can be a song you suspect they know as well. but as with any gift, a surprising element is a plus ;)

sure, but that's not really a problem, is it? like i said, it can be anyone who's ever played the game, so expect at least one gift for strommibear :eek:h:

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 213 – Especially For You - Nominate!!!!!

Very difficult theme. What is difficult about it isn't finding a suitable song but choosing who to send a gift to. There are so many BSG participants I feel gratitude and warmth towards and having to choose just one participant to dedicate a song to, while bypassing all the other participants I also feel so much appreciation for, is going to stretch and twist and pull my poor little heart in all sorts of awkward directions. And I have to say, although quite small, I have a very fragile and delicate heart and I fear this might all be too much for it. :awww:
