Rules:
I will give you a list with starting point values. The next person to respond will add one (help) to one item and subtract one (harm) from one different item. When they do so, they will copy/paste the previous list with their changes. In the event that the list is updated by two people at once, the second one will simply be responsible for editing their post to include the changes made by the person who got in first.

A person may not make a change twice in a row, and a person may not make a change more than once every ten minutes.

When an item reaches a score of 0, it drops off the list and is no longer eligible to be helped/harmed. The last item standing wins.

One final detail: there is no signing up to play, people can come and go as they please.
So, the game ends with a score of 105 for the winning composer, and naught for all others? ( Unless I counted wrong.)

So, to get the game over quickest, we should all help the same composer, and hurt any other.

...why is this a game? It's a fidget spinner.

It's an interesting way to gather a consensus on a ranking of the items in the list.
And from what I've seen on other forums, generally when several people band together to help a specific item, several others band together to hurt it. Right now, the lesser known composers are dropping off pretty quickly, but it turns into more of a fan-debate when you get down to the last few.

Also, the goal is very much not to end the game as quickly as possible.

Yeah, the game theory here is very interesting. The best way to promote your favored winner is to ignore them completely. Additionally, if you support someone other than Mozart, Bach, or Beethoven, it feels like an uphill battle.

Also, if you want to take out popular items in a list, it may be best to just make a meta post about how taking them out will be difficult. :whistlesromanianrhapsody:
