Hello and welcome! This game is all about low-stress, low-commitment, low-time consumption but high fun and creativity!

Here are the rules:

1. The host (me, in the case of Round 1) suggests an X Factor act. This can be any act from any series.

2. Everyone who wants to take part then submits a song to the host via PM, that they think will suit the act. This should all be anonymous.

3. After a couple of days of submissions, the host then posts all submissions together. Everyone, even those who haven't submitted a song, can vote for their favourite songs Eurovision style (12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 points). You can't vote for your own song.

4. After another day or so, once all the votes are in, the results will be announced. The person who came up with the winning song gains a point in the leaderboard and hosts Round 2. The same process begins again.

5. After someone wins 5 points, the overall winner is decided! Then a new tally starts from scratch.

6. So basically this takes up very little time indeed, you only need to pick your song and then vote on the others.

7. You don't need to play every round; if you want you can randomly start playing in Round 10 or whatever, and then come back in Round 17. There's no limit to the number of players either, and even if you've never played a game before, please feel free to try your luck

To begin with then, I'm going to choose the very first act which is...

Spoiler


If you want to play, you don't even need to post in the thread, just PM me with your song choice. Do not post your song in the thread. Remember, you can choose any song that you like, although if you post the same song that someone else has already chosen I'll ask you to re-pick. Please keep your song choice to yourself, as you may otherwise face a points penalty You can of course discuss which songs you like when they've been posted

Hope you all like the look of the game, and if so please keep this thread bumped

Thank you.

Also once someone wins the round do you reveal what everyone picked, or is that at the end of the entire game?

The way I understand it, it get's revealed at the end of each round. That way, we know who the host is for the next round and what the leader board is!

What a fantastic idea for a game by the ever creative Alex. I sent my song in, it came on my Ipod shortly after I read this thread and I thought it would suit Diana!

Voting is open!

Please PM your votes to me, ranking the acts Eurovision style (12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1). You can't vote for yourself, so this means that mentors you'll each have to sadly give zero to one of your competitors. Members of the public who don't have a song in the contest can also vote, although your votes will be combined in to one super vote.

Voting is open until 9pm on Saturday, when I'll be revealing the results live! Mentors who do not vote will incur a 12 point deduction. So please try and get your votes in asap.

Remember if you in you get the chance to host the next round, so good luck to everyone!

Interesting list of songs, not heard of a few of the artists but it seems like it's full of quirky girls! Will take a look at the songs now.
