  • [Game] Guess the album! Fifth week: Instant hit!

    Hey guys,

    I've got an idea for a new and fun game. It basically goes like this: You post an album's chart run in the UK (You can find them on www.officialcharts.com) and the others have to guess the album. You got it correct? Well, then it's your turn now!

    RULES:
    1. The album has to be known and that means that it must have reached multiplatinum status (= 2x platinum and higher) in the UK.
    2. No album is allowed to be taken twice. Once it's played, it's eliminated for further rounds.
    3. If it is not solved after a day, you may give hints (e.g. 'It's the artist's 3rd album.', 'It's an R&B album.', etc.).

    It would be cool if you picked albums with unusual chart runs, e.g. an album that took 60 weeks to reach No. 1, an album that peaked at No. 3 for 8 weeks or an album that spent 2 weeks in the top 10 - in its 1st and 57th week.

    -----------------------------------------

    Here comes the first chart run:
    1 / 1 / 3 / 3 / 2 / 5 / 4 / 4 / 3 / 4 / 3 / 2 / 4 / 5 / 1 / 1 / 3 / 3 / 2 / 3 / 3 / 6 / 3 / 5 / 4 / 3 / 4 / 4 / 2 / 2 / 2 / 3 / 1 / 3 / 4 / 4 / 4 / 1 / 2 / 1/ 2 / 1 / 2 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 4 / 4 / 8 / 3 / 2 / 5 / 5 / 7 / 5 / 9 / 9 / 6 / 7 / 4 / 5 / 4 / 5 / 5 / 6 / 6 / 5 / 4 / 7 / 11 / 10 / 7 / 6 / 9 / 9 / 10 / 7 / 15 / 16 / 17 / 19 / 18 / 16 / 11 / 15 / 21 / 28 / 29 / 27 / 22 / 23 / 27 / 34 / 29 / 31 / 34 / 31 / 41 / 42 / 44 / 46 / 41 / 41 / 42 / 45 / 49 / 45 / 50 / 46 / 54 / 43 / 42 / 38 / 31 / 26 / 32 / 22 / 29 / 33 / 37 / 42 / 45 / 49 / 45 / 44 / 64 / 63 / 73 / 79 / 89 / 89 / - / 89 / 87 / 88 / 76 / 63 / 70 / 73 / 73 / - / 69 / 70 / 67 / 62 / 78 / 93 / - / 95 / 99 / 77 / 82 / 96 / 89 / 80 / 79 / 75 / 85 / 71 / 20 / 21 / 28 / 35 / 25 / 26 / 31 / 21 / 15 / 22 / 32 / 44 / 37 / 38 / 40 / 28 / 21 / 19 / 22 / 19 / 30 / 31 / 32 / 31 / 25 / 29 / 30 / 30 / 26 / 33 / 36 / 39 / 49 / 48 / 51 / 52 / 57 / 39 / 50 / 68 / 73 / 64 / 68 / 58 / 60 / 60 / 56 / 46 / 56 / 51 / 50 / 55 / 55 / 62 / 61 / 63 / 64 / 60 / 66 / 75 / 71 / 82 / 92 / 94 / - / 81 / 64 / 51 / 64 / 53 / 55 / 54 / 53 / 55 / 62 / 58 / 64 / 61 / 61 / 52 / 66 / 63 / 66 / 63 / 60 / 58 / 71 / 65 / 71 / 73 / 75 / 85 / 75 / 80 / 51 / 52 / 56 / 53 / 59 / 58 / 65 / 67 / 61 / 62 / 67 / 70 / 66 / 67 / 83 / 87 / 87 / 96 / 97 / - / 84 / 66 / 71 / 75 / 79 / 74 / 71 / 57 / 67 / 61 / 63 / 69 / 67 / 56 / 63 / 63 / 66 / 61 / 61 / 68 / 71 / 71 / 73 / 73

    Is it offensive to fall in love with you and everything you do
    and everything you stand for?
    Could I break through your invisible wall, could I hide my pride for once,
    just to tell you that I see more?

      No, it's another album.

      So, here comes the hint: It won at least one award in the Grammy Awards' major categories.

              Well, Ariana Grande's album was successful, not that successful though ^^ . The artist won not only a Grammy but also an Oscar.

                  Yeah, you got it, Affillate ^^ ! Now you can pick an album - you can choose the link in the first post to choose the album and then just quote the chart run.

                    Quick question How do I figure out if it's reached multiplatinum on the UK chart site? EDIT wait can just use wikipedia. The ARIA chart usually lists the certififications in the chart pages alongside but cant figure out to view that on the UK chart site. Anyways...

                            theMathematician I think maybe we might need to open this up to question style to generate some interest like the 'Guess the Song' game perhaps? As it is there's nothing to go on for guessing other than the Chart run and a clue per day unless you really know the chart runs. haha.

                            Next Clue: It has a title track which was also a single from the album.

                              Good point, Affillate . I initially wanted it to have a focus on charts, but I'll think about revising it by tomorrow!

                                            Guys, what would you say if I edited the rules in the following way:
                                            1. I would pick a certain criterion for the choice of albums for each week (e.g. best of albums, 90s divas, big comebacks, etc.)
                                            2. There would be a scaling of points, so it would be like that: 1 hint = 5 points, 2 hints = 3 points, 3 hints = 1 point. If it cant be solved after 3 hints, it would be revealed.
                                            ?
                                            Is it offensive to fall in love with you and everything you do
                                            and everything you stand for?
                                            Could I break through your invisible wall, could I hide my pride for once,
                                            just to tell you that I see more?

                                              This works! And maybe we could do a clue a day, so that if it's not solved within three days, the mystery album is revealed.
