Heal or Hurt: Version 1.5

Super Ry 71

Recommended Posts

Alright, I've seen this game played at another message board I visit, so I thought I give it a shot at hosting my own version. This game is called "Heal or Hurt" and is fairly simple to play. And coming back in a slightly altered form! :grin:

Part 1. You must nominate up to three songs TWO BANDS/ARTISTS that you personally enjoy. After twenty-four (or more) songs bands/artists are on the list, the game begins with each song band/artist set at 10 Hit Points, or HP.

Part 2. You can vote to add one point, or ‘heal’ a band/artist. However, you can only heal one band/artist per post. Likewise, you can vote to ‘hurt’ a different band/artist, which lowers its HP by one point. Again, you can only hurt one band/artist per post, and you can’t vote more than once per round. After roughly twenty-four hours have past, the voting round closes and the results are tallied. If any songs are remaining and have at least 1 HP, another round of voting takes place.

Part 3. Once a band/artist’s points have reached zero, it is eliminated from play, and voting continues.

Godmode. If any band/artist reaches 15 HP, it will have reached what is called ‘Godmode.’ In this form, the band/artist will gain powers (for that turn only) that may be used in addition to normal healing and hurting. Depending on how many times a band/artist has reached Godmode determines how strong it will be; for example, if a band/artist has become a god for the first time, it’s powers can only use 1 point of energy, but if it has reached its 5th level of Godhood, powers will be +/- 5 points and so on. Also, you cannot heal or hurt a band/artist while it is in Godmode. You can, however, heal/hurt it on the next turn (referred to as ‘Cooldown’). The band/artist’s HP will then return to ten. To reach Godmode again, a song must have reached the next fifth increment at the end of a round (i.e. 1st time 15, 2nd time 20, 3rd time 25, etc.).

Special Event 1. On Tuesdays every fifth (5th) round, a special event will take place called “New Releases.†In addition to normal rules, you can vote from three different artists record labels. At the end of the round, the winning artist label has one of their bands/artists not in play added for the next round. As always, it starting HP level is ten. This does not include songs they may have previously had that were voted off.

Special Event 2. Another special event occurs on Saturdays every seven (7) rounds. This is entitled “Forgotten Favorites.†Any band/artist that had been voted out during any of the last five rounds will be eligible to be brought back into play. After the round is over, the band/artist with the most votes returns to play at 10 HP. Note that a band/artist can only be resurcted once; after it has been killed a second time, it is gone forever.

Special Event 3. A new feature is known as "Has-Beens". This event, which occurs even ninth (9th) round, allows voters to choose a band/artist to smite. The band/artist that has the most votes at the end of the round will have half of their HPs cut off, rounded.

Part 4. The game is over when only one band/artist remains.

That sure was a mouthful. :shocked: *gasps for air* Hope you understood all that. If you didn't, don't worry. The game is much simpler than my explanation. I start the nomination process:

Dire Straits
