    Time for another round of Bet Your Knowledge :)

    Since it's been a little while between games, here is a reminder of how it's played:''


    *Each game will consist of 5 players

    *At the start of each game, the players are awarded 100 points

    *The players will bet a minimum of 25 and a maximum of 50 points on their ability to answer a trivia question in one of the following categories: Movies, Music, TV or Celebrities.

    *A correct answer will increase your points. An incorrect or no answer will decrease your points.

    *One answer per question, per contestant. Please PM me your answers.

    *One new bet, though the amount can be the same, must be made for each new question.

    *If you lose all your points, you are eliminated.

    *The first person to reach 300 points will win colors for 24 hours

    *No game bans for eliminated/non-winning players

    *You are permitted to look up the answers on the internet, however, they will be worded in a way that won?t make it so easy [face_devil] [face_devil]
