Pyfish 1 1 3 9 3 2 1 7 2 1 30
Spike 1 1 3 1 1 1 2 7 1 1 19

The leader after this week's questions is @nudge who only edges past @Bluebird Hewitt by one point. It's mad rush at the top of the table with four contenders all sitting within one point of each other. Who knows what the next round will bring but this is the closest competition we've had at the start of the season. May it long continue.

Stats

  • Homare Sawa is one of Japan's all-time great Women's Goalkeepers with an outstanding performance in 2011 that saw them lift the WC trophy
  • AmorePacific is one of S. Korea's leading beauty products sold
  • @Toinho and @Dr. Gonzo used a little telepathy, and perhaps more, to edge out everyone else with their answer to a movie shot in Hong Kong. They invited @Harry along for the experience.
  • China is fantastic at Table Tennis but they are untouchable at Diving. Their team events and singles events in the sport are unrivaled. 

As always, thank you for participating and the next round will cover a great Oriental topic. Food. 

Note: Can an admin please pin this post to the top of the forum please?

Stick With Azeem 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 10

We have a tie at the top with @Stan and @Toinho both sparring for top spot having 32 points each. The former getting to top spot by eating a common breakfast in Taiwan with @Dr. Gonzo.

Stats

  • Every dish in Shokugeki No Soma has been cooked by a couple on YouTube who wanted to see if the show was authentic
  • Based on statistics, South Korea exports the most amount of beer from Asia getting into the top 10 beer exporters in the world last year (2018) and not a single beer in the answers is from there
  • Jasmine rice is extremely popular in most Far-South Asian cooking for its fragrant aroma, the more inland you go however, the less popular it becomes.

Congrats to the toppers for this and I will post the consolidated table shortly.

Spike 19 17       -2 36

It was a rough week for Sheep as everyone saw their PD in the negative after a very impressive start in Round 1. This should all change in the next round which will be far easier for the contestants. @nudge only retains her top spot by 1 point as the rest of the pack isn't very far behind.

Pyfish 9 11 1 5 6 2 2 1 1 1 39
Dr Gonzo 9 11 1 5 1 1 2 1 1 1 33

What a round its been. @Stick With Azeem has shown everyone that even if you score 10 and are at the bottom of a round you can easily turn your fortunes around with a 50 point score in the next. He takes the top of the roost with @Toinho, @nudge and @Bluebird Hewitt following very close behind. I'd also like to take a moment and give props to @Spike for doing well by not using Google and pure brain matter. 

Stats

  1. Symphony of the Night is considered by many as the best in the Castlevania series and also a big departure from how previous iterations of the game like the original Castlevania were made. Both of these titles made the list this round.
  2. Hideo Kojima is an ardent fan of movies and it shows in his latest creation (Death Stranding) but most, if not everyone, knows him best for his work with Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid series.
  3. Chun-Li was the first woman in fighting games and has a very checkered history which revolves around a design decision to make her wear pants or tights. We all know which fashion choice won there.

Congrats to all the participants and I will post the overall scores shortly.

Pyfish 30 22 39     17 91
Spike 19 17 40     23 76

It's a proper fight at the top with @Toinho finally catching up with @nudge but he's only falling short because of the points differential which has been in the positive for everyone this week. @Stick With Azeem has the best PD for the round.

We move onto the next round ... Martial Arts

This week sees @nudge retain her position at the top of the roost with @Toinho slipping down to third. @DeadLinesman makes a good jump to second and betters his score from the last week. 

Stats

  • The MMA fighting scene has very few fighters with one style as most of them incorporate attack styles from other arts. What is most common in the mix however is Jiu-Jitsu and was correctly called out by a lot of people today.
  • Questions #5 and #6 were purposely put together to see if people would use Wing Chun as a Bruce Lee fightstyle. While it is one of his fight styles Jeet Kune Do is what he is most famous for and has been mimicked by many actors in martial arts movies.
  • Shurikens can start with just one point and go up to as many as they need. The most common are 4 point and 5 point throwing Shurikens.

Congrats to all the participants and I will be posting the overall scores soon.

@nudge moves to the top of the list and starts to make some space between her and @Toinho. His choice to pick Hattori Hanzo lost him some points. Meanwhile everyone has now moved past the 100 points barrier. 

We now move onto the last round which will be out tonight or tomorrow morning.

What a round its been. @Stan jumps to the top of the queue with @CaaC (John) taking second place. @Toinho isn't far behind the round leader with 39 points and this may play a critical part in the final scores. All in all it was a good round.

Stats

  • One of you did all the questions wrong and I originally thought it was a great idea till someone else tried the exact same strategy. This is the first time in the history of running Sheep that we have not had a unique ACE in any question. Congrats.
  • The South-East Asia question was a trick question but in the end it didn't matter as most people went with similar answers.
Final scores coming up shortly.

Thanks for running this @Mel81x, it was great fun. Can we expect Season 6?

Yes you can. I will be working on it as I travel this Xmas season. I have a few themes I am currently experimenting with to come up with questions to run through like (but not limited to)

  • Star Wars for Sheep
  • How well do you know your villains?
  • Surviving an Apocalypse
  • Live. Die. Repeat. (this one is themed around stuff people do everyday that makes other people miserable and what truly annoys us)
  • Vacationing in War Zones

If anyone has a theme they'd like to see on here do let me know and I'll do some research and come up with easy-to-answer questions that people can get through. I obviously won't make them too easy.
