Game No : 294

Category : Mathematician

(based on an original idea by sfar)

Category Chosen By : SRB Analyst

SRB Analyst said:
Hi, Adey! I cannot believe it!!!

Next theme is Mathematician

Basically, you can nominate any entry with Maths' term in the title: Ellipse, Theorem, Cube, Cone, Pyramid, Plus, Minus, Divide etc.
I hope that you do a search, or you BSG Policy (aka me and De Lay) will come to you!​

I think this theme is difficult, because people aren't familiar with the terms. I will try to provide a list of words that should be acceptable, ok?

This list is what I came up with at the moment - it may grow:

+ any other geometric term, names of shapes, lines, objects etc.

base
category
circle
combination
curve
differ
difference
digit
divide
equal
factor
function
group
identify
identity
image
imaginary
infinite
infinity
limit
line
logic
matrix
minus
necessary
negative
number
object
operator
plane
plus
pole
positive
problem
product
proof
random
ring
similar
slope
smooth
space
square
symbol
symmetry
system
term
tesselate
transcendental
triangle
type
unit
value
zero

+ some other words, which I would personally struggle to find in songs:
(but you never know)

abstract
act on
almost everywhere
ambient
arbitrary
associate
associative
branch
canonical
commutative
commute
converge
definition
elementary
equation
formula
fractal
fraction
generate
graph
if and only if
induction
inequality
injection
integral
irrational
kernel
knot
null
permute
polar
prime
probability
process
projection
ratio
rational
sequence
series
set (noun)
subtract
sufficient
sum
theory
trigonometry
trivial
variation
vector

I can consider words like:

Real
Imaginary
Recurring
Point
Power
Degree
Element
Edge
Face
Altitude
Angle
Size
Complex
Order
Curve
Local
Range
Mean
Area
Volume
Chance
Vertical
Horizontal
Rate
Group
Structure
Natural
Reduce
Transform
Rotate
Normal
Rank
Root
Argument
Unity
Parallel
Continuous
True
False
Binary

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 :-

RANKINGS POINTS

The following rankings points are given at the end of each game :

Although the game didn't immediately start at one every week, it was fairly early in the run of games that it became a weekly game, so to make things simple I've counted every game as one week.

Rankings are compiled from the last 52 games - the best 16 scores during the last 52 games count to the players total ranking.

With huge thanks and acknowledgement to Markus for doing a lot of the inputting of and clearing the then backlog :worship:
