OK, let's try and see if this works. Here's the rules.

All answers are allowed. However, scoring is not based on what the "correct" answer is . It is based on how many other participants choose the same answer. So, for example, if I ask what fruit is the greatest, and 17 people say "banana," each person who answered "banana" will get 17 points for that question. If someone says "mango," and they're the only one, they will get 1 point for that question.

However, the answer doesn't have to even fit the criteria. If two people answer "I hate George W. Bush" when asked what fruit is the greatest, they will still get two points for that question.

You pm the host(whomever asks the questions) your answers. The host will give a time limit for the round, and tally the results for that round.

Your individual score will be the total of your scores for all seven questions.

-When pm'ing answers, do not leave the original questions in the message. answers should be in the following format:
1. answer
2. answer
3. answer
4. answer
5. answer
6. answer
7. answer

The host has the privilege of refusing answers if not sent in the above format.

-Host of a round will receive the average of the top 5 highest scores
-You are guessing what everyone else would say, not your personal opinion
-The host will not score answers before given date and, but additional time may be added if the host is not able to score on time (to prevent the need for scoring early). ROUND IS FORFEIT IF HOST SCORES BEFORE GIVEN TIME/DATE; scoring later is acceptable.
-NO POINTS WILL BE GIVEN FOR MISSED ROUNDS. You may petition the group for a postponement if you would be unable to submit scores on time.
-You may enter the game at any point, even if you've missed some rounds. You might still be able to catch up, too.

Understood? Great. Now send your answers to me VIA PM - not sharing in this thread and tainting other's response, and I will tally the scores by Thursday night 9PM. The gracious winner, gets to (in the near future) host the next round of IWS. G'luck!

First person to reach 1000 points is the overall winner.

Here's the questions for this round:

1. What is your favourite brand of detergent?
2. If you were stranded on an island alone, what do you prefer to have?
3. Who should win this year's Malaysian Idol?
4. Duran Duran's return to the music scene: "Nostalgically cool" or "The Uber-lame?"
5. What is your favourite Michael Jackson song?
6. The many new kopitiam restaurants suddenly appearing in KL, yay or nay?
7. Which country should I migrate to?

OK, send them in! Again, this round ends Thursday night 9PM Malaysian time (for those oversea, please note).

Actually, a Forum website is a bad place to play games.
Now I understand why there is a 70-message limit in the PM box.
Hence if the scorekeeper gets 70 PMs his box is full and cannot receive anymore PM untill he clears the box. Is there enough time to keep score? What about those the can't get in when the box is full?

So, forget it guys.
You want to play this game, do it on gmail.com and you can play till the stars go out.

Give it a go first, chang. The host may not even get 70 messages for all u know. Unless the worry is the server may get an overload.

I have so far 2 entries. Experience from my past says that usually I don't get more than 30 players. Let's see how the first round goes...
