Beyond the explicit point-gathering (DJ points and fans), turntable.fm users have created various in-room games that can be pretty fun. Some I’ve seen personally are:
- The Name Game – a DJ has to play a song that contains at least one word from the title of the song played just before it (variations of this include band names or band/song names mixed)
- Duration Game – a DJ has to play a song that is within 15, 30, 60 seconds (depending on who is playing) in duration of the song played just before it
- Theme Games – on a given round, someone calls out what the theme will be and all DJs have to find a song that fits that theme (and is on topic for the room) – for example, “songs about fruit”, “songs from bands with the letter “X” in them, etc.
