The Cult Game

with one comment

I was inspired to post this by a Facebook status update from a friend who went to see The Cult last night.

This car game can be played by any number of players from two, if you’ve got a Morgan 2 seater roadster up to seventy if you drive a double decker bus.

  • To play the game you need a car, an iPod (other MP3 players are available) with shuffle function, some means of playing the iPod in the car, some The Cult CDs on the iPod.
  • Decide a time limit for the game – this can be a period of time, a number of songs or the time it takes to reach a certain point in your journey.
  • Set the iPod to shuffle mode selecting The Cult tracks. Don’t hit play just yet, though.
  • Divide the people in your car into two teams, the left and the right team.
  • The driver side of the car gets to go first. It’s the driver’s perogative to choose the music.
  • The driver’s team chooses between “Yeaah” or “Baby”.
  • The other team gets what’s left over.

OK now you are ready to start.

  • Hit play on the iPod.
  • Every time Ian Astbury sings “Yeaah” whichever team has the “Yeaah”s gets a point.
  • Every time Ian Astbury sings “Baby” whichever team has the “Baby”s gets a point.
  • At the end of the track the team with the greatest number of points wins the song.
  • The winning team also gets to select “Yeaah” or “Baby” for the next track and play continues in the same way.
  • At the end of the allotted time or when you reach your destination the team with the most songs wins.

I can pretty much guarantee you will not find a single The Cult song that you can’t play this with.
