Game Options

KMQ offers different game options to dynamically narrow down the selection of songs based on your preferences. The current game options can be viewed by using ,options or simply tagging KMQ Bot.

Use ,help [command_name] for details and examples for every bot command.

For each command’s usage, arguments:

  • surrounded by [brackets] are required
  • surrounded by {curly_brackets} are optional
  • containing [values | separated | by | pipes] are the only valid argument values (in this case, only values, separated, by, and pipes would be accepted)

If no arguments are passed, the game option is reset to its original value. To reset all options, use ,reset.


When applying a new game option, the newly updated option will be bold in the bot’s response. To learn more about how to use a specific game option, check ,help [option].

,limit [beginning_limit] {end_limit}

Setting this option “limits” KMQ bot to the top most viewed beginning_limit music videos out of the total number of songs. Increasing the limit allows less popular songs to play; decreasing it restricts it to more popular songs.

For example, ,limit 100 will play the 100 most viewed songs in the current game options, while ,limit 250 500 will play between the 250th and 500th most viewed songs.

View counts are frequently updated from YouTube.


,groups [group_1], {group_2}, {group_3} …

Setting the groups option limits the selection of songs to those belonging to the artist specified. For instance ,groups blackpink, itzy, fromis 9, bts will exclusively play songs from those four artists. You can view the list of groups names via the link in ,help groups. Make sure to separate the groups with commas.

  • List all set groups using ,list groups
  • Add groups using ,add groups [group_1], {group_2}, ...
  • Remove groups using ,remove groups [group_1], {group_2}, ...
  • In order to reset this option, simply type ,groups


,gender [gender_1 | alternating] {gender_2} {gender_3}

Setting a gender specifies the gender of the groups you’d like to hear from.

  • ,gender male will play songs by boy groups and male soloists
  • ,gender female will play songs by girl groups and female soloists
  • ,gender male female will play songs by boy groups, girl groups, and all soloists
  • ,gender coed will play songs by groups containing a mix of male and female members
  • ,gender alternating will alternate between male and female artist songs each round

male, female, and coed can all be used at once (,gender male female coed), but alternating must be used on its own.

Note that ,groups and ,gender are incompatible with each other. If you wish to continue using ,gender, reset ,groups first.

Want to control whether groups or soloists are exclusively played? Check out ,help artisttype.


,cutoff [beginning_year] {end_year}

Setting a cutoff limits songs based on which year they were released. Using ,cutoff 2015 will play songs from 2015 onwards, while ,cutoff 2015 2017 will play songs released between 2015 and 2017.


,seek [seek_type]

Setting the seek type changes which point in a song the bot starts playing from.

  • ,seek beginning will play every song starting from the beginning
  • ,seek random will play from a random point in the song
  • ,seek middle will play from the middle of the song


,guessmode [guess_mode_type]

Setting the guess mode changes the objective of the game to guessing the name of the song, the artist, or both.

  • ,guessmode song only accepts song names as guesses
  • ,guessmode artist only accepts artist names as guesses
  • ,guessmode both accepts either the song or artist name
    • A song guess will net you 1 point and an artist guess will net you 0.2 points


,exclude [group_1], {group_2}, {group_3} …

Setting the exclude option ignores songs by the specified artists. For instance ,exclude Day6, Momoland ignore songs by those two artists. You can view the list of groups names via the link in ,help exclude. Make sure to separate the groups with commas.

  • List all set excluded groups using ,list exclude
  • Add excluded groups (these artist won’t play) using ,add exclude [group_1], {group_2}, ...
  • Remove excluded groups (these artists will play) using ,remove exclude [group_1], {group_2}, ...
  • In order to reset this option, simply type ,exclude

Similarly, to force groups in to the game regardless of the current options, use ,include.


,goal [goal]

Setting the goal ends the game when the given goal score is reached. For example, if a player were to use ,goal 50, the first player to 50 points would win the game (,end is called automatically).

To disable a goal, use ,goal.


,timer [time (seconds)]

Setting a timer limits players to guess in under time seconds before the round ends automatically. Once a user gives a valid timeout, the timer will start at the beginning of every round. If no one guesses right in the allotted time, the round is over.

Set the timer to 10 (5? 3?) seconds and face off with your friends to see who the ultimate KMQ champ is!

Alternatively, set it above 30 seconds and avoid the ,skip spam.

To disable a timer, use ,timer.


,shuffle [random | unique]

Setting the ,shuffle unique plays through every song in your options once before any are repeated.

With ,shuffle random, songs are randomly chosen from before every round, so some may repeat depending on the total amount of songs.
