Forum Support: Anime Theme Song Game
This page is dedicated to keeping track of the rounds in the Anime Theme Song Game.

For those who might have stumbled upon this page by accident, you might be wondering what the Anime Theme Song Game is.

Is it God Knows?

...Not exactly.

The Anime Theme Song Game is possibly the longest-running forum game located outside of Forum Games, and is basically Twenty Questions with anime songs. Started by Grain in January 2011, it's somehow managed to accumulate over 15,000 posts in 500+ rounds... as well as its fair share of terrible, terrible jokes.

The rules, as originally laid out by Grain, are as follows. Annotations are attached where appropriate.

Game Explanation and Rules

The game is very easy to play. This list may seem long, but that's just because it gradually grew as the players brainstormed helpful ideas. The basic rules are bolded.
  1. I am thinking of an anime theme song. It can only be an opening song, or an ending song.
  2. You ask yes/no questions to discover the song. Then, say the song's name.
    • To Grain's chagrin, this rule is generally relaxed: if your answer is unambiguous (e.g. "Is it the OP to [an anime with only 1 OP]?"), it's usually accepted.
  3. Whoever wins chooses the next song (or gives his/her turn to someone else).
  4. English and Japanese names can be used, and are interchangeable.
  5. You can not guess the name of something by trying to spell out its name, e.g., "Does the song's name start with a K?" In addition, you cannot ask if a light novel has an English translation.
    • The second part of this rule was based on a dispute concerning the listing of works on the Light Novels page. It is rarely invoked.
  6. You must begin your round with at least one hint.
  7. Subjective hints/questions are to be avoided.
  8. When somebody guesses correctly, declare his/her victory in the thread and post a video link to the theme song. State the song's name and the anime's name.
  9. Hentai is not allowed.
  10. You may choose to ask up to 3 questions in one post.
  11. You can not evade questions. If yes/no is invalid for an answer, explicate the answer. Example.
  12. When your round is over, please PM me the proper information to be recorded, lest your round be forgotten. (Yes, the original hint does count as a fact.)
    • Or back it up here. Same idea.

House Rules and General Guidelines

  • House Rules are optional but may be included for the sake of variety. When invoking House Rules, the round starter should make it clear that variant rules are in play.
  • In the interests of fair play, good taste and accurate bookkeeping, rules 4-12 should be adhered to strictly.
  • Rules 1-3, despite being the basic rules of the game, are subject to variation depending on the inclination of the host or winner.
  • It's considered good etiquette to put up a summary list of facts for the round once it carries on to the next page.

Round Records

The round record format is as follows:

Host - Song - Anime - Number Of Facts - Link to the first post of the Round.
Hint
Winner

The template can be found here when editing.

Note: We are using a different method of counting facts now so the numbers on the first post of the thread may not be the same. Disclaimer 

All answered questions will be counted as facts, regardless of legitimacy, except for:
  • Questions that have absolutely no relevance to the round.
  • Questions asked based on erroneous assumptions due to the host's error (e.g. failure to do the research) or insufficient clarity.
The initial hint counts as a fact. The final question (the one that arrives at the answer) does not.

As might be expected for a game that's gone on for this long, a few rounds were lost in the process of record-keeping. Now that we're recompiling the list of results, the lost rounds will be archived here, to be inserted back into the list... someday.
