I must be a little slow because I just don't get this one.
Feb 6th, 2011 at 03:43 GMT
Well, I want to make it easy for anyone to play; how can I help? What can I explain better?
Feb 6th, 2011 at 06:46 GMT
I think you need more helpful clues. Nobody knows what movie was #4 at the box office in 2005 or what got nominated for BET awards in 2004.
Feb 6th, 2011 at 11:00 GMT
Agreed. The hints need to be MUCH more helpful.

@rjm, @vizili: What kind of hints do you think would be appropriately helpful? I like that this more like a puzzle than a quiz -- if the clues were so helpful that they gave away what movie they were cluing, then it would be a simple matter to guess the stars of those movies and get the puzzle 80% right in 1 min. As it sits, between 1/3 and 2/3 of players guess five of the 11 actors and five of the 10 movies, and 1/8 of the players get everything right. I would like to encourage more successes than that, but I also don't want a cakewalk. I agree that no one knows what was nominated for BET awards in 2004, but if you've guessed George Clooney or Julia Roberts by that point, just how many of the movies they released in the '00s could even be nominated for such awards? Thats how the clues are supposed to function -- to need the reinforcement of successful actor guesses -- but I'm happy to replace any/all of them with a better clue that accomplishes that. Would a better Ocean's 12 clue be "second in a trilogy?" "Crime comedy?" "Set in Europe?" I'd change it to anything like that, but I don't want to change it to "Europe-set second film in a crime comedy trilogy."

Having said that, I realize that more players are motivated to vote for a lower-than-average score than are motivated to vote for a higher-than-average score, so I haven't gotten the recipe right. But I don't want the puzzle to be "Guess some actors that were in Ocean's Twelve." @vizli: Sorry for getting your handle wrong in that previous post.

Hm, I tried to add a bunch of clues but apparently the ee clue structure doesn't work in the grouped-by-column format ... ?
Feb 6th, 2011 at 16:56 GMT
OK, revised in-game hints to be year + director.
Mar 9th, 2011 at 19:55 GMT
I don't know if it's just me, but I couldn't even see the hints...

You had to type hints movigodess. But I found this mighty hard...
