Drive-In Tour Games
@tennesseejac said in Drive-In Tour Games:
And, does each correct song picked get a point no matter which slot? Like if I choose America for 1st set opener but they play it the 3rd song, does it still count as one point?
You must pick openers and closers in the correct position – that's why they're worth more points. But it does work the other way – if you pick America as a wildcard and it opens the first set, you'd get 1 point.
BTW everyone, sorry, I pasted the wrong link again. This one should work and I edited the above post to have the correct one.

I'm in! Thanks for setting this up. I look forward to going 0 for 13 in points.
Hi everybody, just a reminder that I will turn the form off one hour before the show. That means your entry MUST be in by 6 PST / 7 MST / 8 CST / 9 EST!
There are a few stragglers so hopefully they remember to play before its too late.
Hope everyone has a blast tonight!
Whew, what a show. Almost had a festival vibe. It seemed like a bit of a greatest hits show to me, with excellent versions of some of the band's biggest mainstays. As for the game, obscure calls and covers were not favored here and I think a statistical approach of "what's been played the most" would have gotten a lot of points (looking at you, Beautiful Day encore.) However it turns out the essential call was The Remedy, because, well, duh. Nice going, folks who picked that.
We had a bunch of ties as you'd expect with a one-show game. The official nugs recording isn't out yet, so the longest jam is still TBD. But here are our contenders: last names redacted for the internet, but you know who you are.
With 6 points we had a tie for first. Their tiebreaker times:
Jerry - 23:28
Ethan - 24:33
After that we have a 4-way tie for 3rd place, with their tiebreaker times:
Lance - 22:12
Jeff - 14:45
Brandon - 23:10
Marc - 28:23
As soon as the official recording is out I'll make an update with the winners! Hope you all had a great show. I know I needed some live tunes in my life.

14:45 Jeff? When is the last show they didn’t play a song over 15 minutes long?

@tennesseejac we had about 42 players I think and raised $350 for the band. Thanks again for participating.
Looks like the longest jam of the night was Postman. It's around 20:54-21:50 depending on whose recording you use, but that doesn't actually affect the winner.
The winners of the drive-in game:
1st - Jerry (6 points, 23:28)
2nd - Ethan (6 points, 24:33)
3rd - Lance (4 points, 22:12)
Honorable mention to Jeff, Brandon and Marc also with 4 points each but having whiffed the jam time
We plan on refining this system and having something fun for everyone when the next tour rolls around!
Thanks for playing everyone, hope you're all safe and happy out there.
