    Welcome to Bet Your Knowledge! The game that combines the excitement of betting with the challenge of trivia.

    I, Jag4Me, will be your host

    How the game is 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 (in whole numbers) on their ability to answer a trivia question in one of the following categories: Movies, Music, TV,Celebrities, History and Sports

    *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_mischief]

    *Answers will be due within 24 hours, board time, of when the question is posted.

    *If you are interested in playing, please add your name and your first bet to the sign-up sheet below.

    Example: Jane Doe, 25 points

    I did see the 25 point minimum thing. You can call it a typo. I meant to put in 25, but I accidentally clicked 1 instead of 2. My bad.

    1. JediGunship, 25 points
    2. Onoto, 35 points
    3. Ceillean, 25 points
    4. Mister_Master 25 points

    MM - We like to keep everyone guessing. [face_mischief]

    Okay guys! Since it's the weekend I am going to be nice and post your first question now rather than in the morning. :D
    You still have until 10:00am Monday board time to PM your answer.

    First question:

    Name the real life attorney who portrayed a judge in the 1997 movie where another actor portrayed him?


    Good luck!
