Playdip Walrus

This is a thing I found on mafia sites, I’m sure it goes by other names as well, but I know it as a walrus so that’s what we’re calling it! Here’s how you play:

There will be five (5) categories. For each category I’ll write a short description. You privately submit a song (with a youtube link!) for that category that you think fits it (i.e., if the category is “breakup songs” a suitable submission might be The Chain by Fleetwood Mac). I’ll score the submissions, then we’ll have a live listening party on discord for the score reveals for whomever wants to/can make it (scores for each week will also be posted here). The highest aggregate score after five rounds is the winner.

This is our first one, so I’m calling entries at 10-15, and we’ll only do five rounds. Reveals will be on Saturday. Submissions will be due a week in advance.

If you have any questions, ask! Otherwise comment here or PM me a submission to enter.

This is the discord where we’ll be doing live reveals: https://discord.gg/guxkMSm

The five rounds are:

Round One (1): Fight Music. Music to get amped to, that makes you want to fight (verbal fighting included!)

Round Two: The Color Red. Songs that make you feel red, whatever that means to you.

Round Three: The Breakup. You’ve just gone through a break up. Could be good, could be bad, could be undecided. What music encapsulates the feeling of breaking up?

Round Four: Early Morning. You just woke up with the rising sun. How’s it feel?

Round Five: Triumph. What does it feel like to accomplish your goals?

Scoring is a combination of category fit and subjective enjoyment by myself. I have a wide and varied taste so I encourage you to just submit whatever you think fits best, don’t pander—half the point of this is to see what people’s musical tastes are and share music we like with each other!


Submitted for round one:

Audacia
Kimpossible
Ufo Fever
AKFD
Caladrius
Super_dipsy


Volume II from nimb:

Okay! I'm announcing Walrus run 2 - I'll do reveals on Sundays like Nanook and the first one will be on Oct 18th! Send me your songs through PMs here or Discord!

Round One: Pride. Good pride, bad pride. Music that's about being proud.

Round Two: Excitement. Music that's sexy, that makes you want to dance to it.

Round Three: Teenager woes. Music that's about teenager feelings or drama.

Round Four: A good relationship. We had breakup, now give me music about a good relationship.

Round Five: 3:33 am. It's dark, it's night. Dawn has not arrived. What that spooky time sounds like? (Or maybe it's not spooky for you!)

As for Nanook: Scoring is a combination of category fit and subjective enjoyment by myself. I have a wide and varied taste so I encourage you to just submit whatever you think fits best, don’t pander—half the point of this is to see what people’s musical tastes are and share music we like with each other!

I'll probably do this.
