  • [Game] 183rd FSC (Aug 2022 - RETRO) - Dortmund, Germany (ERGEBNISSE)

    Zweistelliger Sieg für Deutschland! Willkommen zurück!
    Double digit victory for Germany! Welcome back!

    We come to Germany for the 10th time! For the second month in a row, our winner is an act that had previously won. This time, it was Purple Disco Machine and Sophie and the Giants who won last year giving us Germany's last win. Now they've brought Germany another victory. mondflug outpaced the competition with this song:
    Dortmund is an old city dating back to 882. In the Roman Empire years, it was even granted its own autonomy. Dortmund has long been a commercial area, which has meant it's gone through a couple cycles of destruction and rejuvenation due to war. The Thirty Years War and World War II both devastated the area. In the latter, 98% of the buildings were destroyed in bombing raids. That has meant a complete restructure of the town and pivoting to new industries.

    All that said, I'm hard pressed to tell you what might be of interest to you, though everything I read insists that there are attractions here. There's Westfalenpark, which has a botanic garden, mini-railway, flamingoes, and chairlift. There's a number of museums here - one dedicated to brewing because this is Germany after all, as well as football (or soccer as those silly Americans call it), and even gaming.

    But for my money, my perfect day will consist of checking out the ruins of a medieval castle in Hohensyburg and grabbing a Salzkuchen, which looks like a bagel sandwich, but is actually a bread roll (I am not sure of the difference, but caraway seeds are apparently a big part of it), and a Stößchen which is apparently a very small serving of beer that serves as a refreshment mid-day, but really seems like a waste when you can get, you know, an actual pint.












    RULES

    01. This is a monthly contest, modeled after Eurovision. You need to have at least 10 posts to your credit to take part.
    02. You can pick any country in the world.
    03. The artist you choose has either to be a citizen of the country they'll represent or to have been born there. At least HALF of the people from your act must be from the country you choose.
    04. Your song must be over 10 years old. For Retro FSC 2021, eligible entries must have been released before January 1st, 2012.
    05. Eurovision entries are not allowed. Songs from concurrent Eurovision heats are not allowed either.
    06. The song cannot have been a UK/US Top 40 hit, as it would give it an unfair advantage.
    07. The song can be a remix.
    08. The song cannot be a cover version.
    09. If your song features a sample, please state it early enough, so the other contestants can decide whether it is acceptable or not by poll.
    10. You cannot vote for your own country.
    11. Discussion about one's favourites during the contest is NOT ALLOWED, as it has the potential to influence the voting.
    12. PLEASE try and choose a song not everyone would know, the point is to discover new artists.
    13. If a song becomes or is found to be ineligible at any time before the voting is over, it will be disqualified.
    14. Make sure you understand all the rules before you take part. You will need to devote about 2 hours of your time to this game to listen to all the entries at least once. Do a little research on your entry before you present it, be sure that it doesn't violate any rules, and check here to see if it has taken part before.
