Here is a game practically designed to turn into a heated argument with no winner …
The object of the game is to put your music library up against another person’s – find out some secret favorites they have, and hope your guilty pleasures don’t pop up in an embarassing number. Playing is simple: In the card game WAR, two opponents split a deck of cards. In each “battle,” players would turn over the top card on his or her deck. Whoever had the highest card won the battle and kept the two cards. At the end of the deck, the person with the most cards won the war. iPod War follows the same guidelines. Two people put their iPods on Shuffle and play music. As each song comes up, whoever has the better song wins the battle. After 10 songs, the person who won the most battles wins the war.
… so let me get this right, someone has turned a 11:30pm drunken muso argument into a game that they play for fun???
That just wouldn’t work with my friends. How could I persuade Mark that my track beats his when inevitably mine will have appeared in some chart or other in the world and to Mark that will almost certainly disqualify it? Or how could I appeal to Pete that “The Division Bell” has quite a lot of tracks I actually like?
Nope, this “game” should be reserved for when two people have sufficiently matching tastes. Something I have yet to experience!
