    Topic: FF SW Trivial Pursuit ? RotJ ? Sign Up NOW!


    Finally the sixth and last trivia game starts! There?ll be just this last one, then the trivia game about the whole saga is finished! So come in and sign up for the final round! :)


    Welcome to the sixth and last FF SW Trivial Pursuit! :D



    FF SW Trivial Pursuit - RotJ


    Old players:
    You played the last round? And you want to show that you know about RotJ as much as or even more than about the other five parts? Then join us in this round again. Although you might know most things and rules from the games before, I ask you to re-read the rules. :)

    New players:
    Did you miss the last rounds about TPM, AotC, RotS, ANH and ESB? Don't worry, you can still participate and win the final game, because every team starts with 0 points in every movie round. Just read the rules and sign up! :D



    FanForce Star Wars Trivial Pursuit

    Please read the rules completely (again).

    This FF SW Trivial Pursuit game will be played by teams who have to answer about 10 questions each week. There will be 4 weeks for each round. Each round will be under the topic of a movie, beginning with TPM and ending with RotJ. The team that answers most questions of one round correctly is the winner of the round. There will be also a winner after all six movies. The team who get the best average position in the end of all six movies is the winner of the whole game/saga. So it is the best to participate in all rounds, but it is also possible to do a break within the rounds (only complete movie) or to jump in after a round is finished.

    You can sign up for the sixth game until the 18th of October (8am*). The first round will start on the 19th of Oktober at about 8am.

    Important: Please, read the rules before every round, because I might add changes, if necessary.


    Team Rules:

    • A team consists of 3 FF members:
      The game will be played by teams of 3 FF members. Only FF members are allowed to participate. We support if the team members are from the same FF, but if you want to participate and can?t find another member of your FF, or you don?t have a FF, let me know and I will help you.


    • Each team must submit a team name, a team captain and if possible the FF they are from.


    • Of course, multiple teams from one chapter can compete.

    • A maximum of 10 teams can play per game.



    Game Rules:
    • The questions will be posted on Friday between 8am to 10am.

    • You have three days to answer the questions. Your answers have to be in on Monday, 8am, at the very latest.

    • If I am not able to post the questions on Friday (with two hours leeway), I will post it one day later at the exact time (again, with two hours flexibility). The time when you should sent in your answers in by won?t change. You can send in your answers always until Monday 8am. If I am not able to post them at the second chance, I won?t post them before the next week. But I will give you a reason why I have not been able to post them.

    • It is not allowed to discuss the questions and answers in public on the boards. Teams who do so will be disqualified for this round, because this is not fair for the other teams.

    • In the event of a tie I will ask a tie breaker question. Time may be an issue here. Further (harder) rules for this case will be announced if a tie occurs.

    • The game is sorted by SW movies. The first round is mostly about TPM, the second one about AotC and so on. But this does not mean that there are not any cross-over questions as well. Keep this in mind.

    • If I ask direct movie questions, I am referring to the DVD-Versions from 2004.

    • The winner of the last round won?t get colors in the following round, even if the team is in the lead. So other teams get t

    What do you want me to do, ask my CT Trivia players to sign up here? They'd be so confused not getting banned after a wrong answer :p

    I just c/p-ed the lists... O:) But take a look below. Does it look better that way? ;) :)


    So, now 8am board-time passed already and the questions are going to be posted in some minutes. I wanted to post them at exactly 8am, but I had an appointment that took a bit longer, so I just came back home. But now let's start the game with the participating teams:

    They are...

    Colorful Lunatics
    (mixed FFes)
    Earwen_Lightrider (Captain)
    Grand_Admiral_Grant
    Imperial_Dork

    I thought there would be one more team, but that doesn't really matter, because I'm sure, it'll be fun for you all! :D

    Do you get nervous for the final 40 questions? Just wait one more minute and read the reminder carefully, please. :)

    Reminder:

  17. Please, keep an eye on your spelling.

  18. Please, remember also to put your source next to each of your answers.

  19. Please, put the following line in the subject of your PM with the answers for this round: "[team name], RotJ, week 1". This makes it a bit more easier for me.

  20. And as the last point, remember that only the first PM I get counts!



  21. Are you ready? Then let's go!
    Here are your first ten questions! :D

    1. What kind of job did Admiral Ackbar exactly before he joined the Rebellion?

    2. How often and when (short description of the scene) is the main docking bay set seen?

    3. What are the first words of Palpatine to Luke?

    4. What provide the speed of an A-Wing?

    5. What?s the size of a Desert Skiff?

    6. What model was 137cm in diameter?

    7. What?s the main thing Bothans trade with?

    8. Which female dancers from Jabba sing in a band in the SW universe?

    9. Who leads a Gamorrean clan?

    10. What do Ewoks believe where their souls go to when they die?


    Good luck, much fun and a wonderful SW-ish weekend to all four teams! [:D]

    (And one last reminder, if you have any problems or questions, just let me know. My PM box is open. :) )



    Edit: Sorry, somehow I hit the post button to early. [face_blush]

    I just got a PM about the questions. So I like to clearify some a bit. :)


    About 1.
    I'm speaking about the exact Job that Admiral Ackbar did before he joined the Rebellion.

    About 2.
    I'm speaking about the Death Star.



    I hope this helps and doesn't confuse you even more. :p

    Some days passed and a couple of fights with Darth RL won finally. But now let's see who got the most points. The points I can give out for this round are 0, 8 and 9. But who got which number of points? :D


    But first I like to give you the correct answers:

    1. What kind of job did Admiral Ackbar exactly before he joined the Rebellion?
    A: Translator of Tarkin (as a slave)

    2. How often and when (short description of the scene) is the main docking bay set seen?
    A: 3 times
    1. when Darth Vader arrives,
    2. Emperor Palpatine entry,
    3. death of Anakin

    3. What are the first words of Palpatine to Luke?
    A: ?Welcome young Skywalker.?

    4. What provide the speed of an A-Wing?
    A: Novaldex J-77 ?Event Horizon? (Engine)

    5. What?s the size of a Desert Skiff?
    A: '9 meters' said my source, but some of you wrote '9.2-9.5 meters', which I took as correct as well.

    6. What model was 137cm in diameter?
    A: Death Star (II) (One of you guessed very well! :D)

    7. What the main thing Bothans trade with?
    A: Information

    8. Which female dancers from Jabba sing in a band in the SW universe?
    A: Lyn Me, Rystáll, Greeata

    9. Who leads a Gamorrean clan?
    A: They are ruled by clan chieftains and a council of females (matrons)

    10. What do ewoks believe where their souls go when they die?
    A: Their souls live on in the trees that is planted at their birthdays.


    This gives you the following points:

    Colorful Lunatics --- 0
    Midlandorians v4 --- 8
    GSFF Nerf Herders - 8
    Gjiiig -------------- 9

    Which means... Gjiiig is in the lead, but followed closely! :D




    Announcement:

    Tomorrow and the day after tomorrow, I have to work on both days until late and won't be able to post the next questions between 8am and 10am board time - neither on Friday nor on Saturday. But I don't want to do a break for a full week, so I try to post the question in my break which will be around 6am (plus/minus one hour). If I can't do this, I ask MacCaffrey to post the questions on Saturday between 8am and 10am.

    I hope you don't mind this little change, especially it gives you a bit extra time, if everything works like I hope. :)

    So in short: Most probably next question will be posted two hours earlier than usual.

    All I can offer is that you can send me a PM, if any question isn't clear enough. :)

    I assume the points of the GSFF teams will be added up in the end? Just kidding. :p Good job by the way, Gjiiig. But don't you rest easy. We are bound to get you in the next round...well, at least we'll try to give you a hard run for the money. :D

    And thanks alot for arranging this quiz, Bine. You're doing a great job here. :)
    And you even plan to sacrifice your work break for us! Well at least the weekend is almost here. ;) Yay!

    Concerning our guess in question 6. The death star simply was the only object that came to our mind which would be measured in diameter. ;)

    You'll never get us! ;) Haha! :D

    I'm curious, which of our answers is wrong, since there is more than one answer slightly (!!) different than the one given by us.

    I'm sure it's the Ackbar thing. Source on the translation business? First time I've heard of that.
