Hurt and Heal (+/-) 6: Best Musical Instrument: Guitar Wins!

Recommended Posts

Drumroll please! Welcome to Hurt and Heal 6!

The Hurt and Heal Game

Here's the goal:

Make your favorite choice win, and make your least favorite choice lose.

Winning and Losing:

Winning: The first choice that reaches 100 (or the last choice standing) wins, ending the game.

Losing: As each choice reaches 0, it is removed from the list. It has lost.

New: In the event that only two choices remain, both scores are reset to 50 and the "shootout" begins!

What you do:

"Hurt" a choice by subtracting 10 from its score.

"Heal" a choice by adding 5 to its score.

(You must do both of these in each turn)

Rules:

You may only "Hurt and Heal" once each day.

Once a choice reaches 0, it is gone. You may not re-add it to the list. Let it die an honorable death. :-)

New: The posted scoreboard comprises the only options. You may not add new options. Discussion will be held before each edition of (+/-); discuss choices there.

If someone "beats you" in posting, change your scoreboard to reflect the change. Be courteous.

Keep it on topic. You can talk briefly about how you chose what to hurt and heal, but take any off topic threads to .

Also, if you have any ideas for the theme for the next Hurt & Heal, post them underneath your scoreboard. That'll make prep for the next one easier.

Everyone clear? All right!

The theme for this Hurt and Heal Game is...

Best Musical Instrument!

Here's the starting scoreboard, presented in alphabetical order and assembled after lots of thought and careful consideration by all of you (special thanks to MattBlackLamb for compiling a good starting list). Check Wikipedia if there's one you haven't heard of!

Avast! David you got me torn. Vocals against drums. The kit's more fun, but singing is so ... grr.

As I play Tenor & Baritone saxes I have to say I'm a bit partial to the woodwind instruments.

A lot of the music I listen to is instrumental & even when it does have vocals I don't normally listen to what they're saying.

Thanks for fixing your mistake, Pinh-- I mean, Panhead. :-)

Banjo is dead. I killed it, because of the cliche. And I played Trombone for eight years, so I healed it. :-)

+ Drums. I'd like to see vocals win too, because I agree they can do anything.

- Synth. Composing is still hard, I'll give it that, but there's no musical talent required beyond arranging the notes and having a computer play them.
