For the regulars who are familiar with Walrus, this is essentially the opposite, where the host picks the songs, and you lovely people in Forum Games rate them via PM.
Then the Reveal is very much like how the Eurovision results are done.How It Will Work:
-Below I've linked YouTube videos with the 20 Songs in contention.
-What you have to do, is just listen to them and figure out which 10 you like the best.
-When you're ready Private Message a numbered list from 1-10 of your choices (with 1 being your favourite of the songs and 10 being your 10th favourite)
-First choices will earn 12 points, second 10 points, and third onwards 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 points respectively (just like in Eurovision)
-Once I've closed sign ups and tallied up all the points, I'll do a reveal thread, going through how everyone ranked the songs and adding the points to the running total (again, just like Eurovision)
It probably sounds more complicated than it actually is. Basically, listen to the songs here and then PM (that's Private Message) me your 10 favourites numbered 1 to 10 with 1 being your favourite.
Please send me a list of 10 songs ; it won't work if people just pick 6 or 7 and then decide they don't want any of the rest, so even if you're not crazy about all 10 songs you choose, go for 10 anyway.

My first SURLAW!
I found the hardest task was placing the Top 10 in order, the second hardest was figuring out which two or three to leave out of the top 10.
Apologies folks, had to take a break due to serious personal issues, but I'm back, new and improved version (shame the same can't be said for boards.ie).
This Surlaw is still open for a couple of weeks and I hope to get round to running it eventually.
Glad you are back and good
