Hello, Addy, how are you?
Thank you so much for all the hard work and dedication to these games, it is truly appreciated!
The theme for the new game will be "Going North"... players will have to pick a song from a singer/band that originates from the Northern countries or places, more specifically: Alaska, Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Scotland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Russia, Mongolia and Japan.
Thank you and good luck to all!
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 :-
