Playing the Game Two teams will square off at a time. The host will PM a question to the first member of the team. The question will ask something that the host has a survey number for. That person will then PM the host back. The player who responds with the highest ranking answer will win. If both respond with the same level answer, the player who responds quickest in time from opening the PM to sending the response. The player who wins this will then have their team continue to play the game. They will post their responses in thread (no help from the audience in the thread, please). They will continue to go until either they get all the answers, or until they have three incorrect answers (referred to in game as strikes). If they clear the board, they win the round. If they get three strikes before they clear the board, the opposing team will get one chance to give an answer. If they succeed, they win the round. If not, the other team wins the round. The winner of the round gets the cumulative total of points assigned to each answer, based on the number of respondents from the survey. The game continues in this fashion with the next person on the team list taking the place of the first for the initial PM question. The third game will have point values doubled, and all games after that will have point values tripled. The first team to 300 points wins the game, advances in the tournament, and gets to play the bonus round. What Happens to the Winners? As noted above, the winning team gets to play the bonus round. Here, the length of your spoils will be determined. In the bonus round, two players from the winning team are selected. They are then PMed five questions from the host. They give their best answers, and get the point values attached to the number of survey responses. The prize for the team is dictated by the value of their answers. If they score a combined total of fewer than fifty points, the members of the team will get their team colors, VIPship and title for 24 hours. If they score between fifty-one and ninety-nine points, they will get team colors, VIPship, and title for 48 hours. If they score between one-hundred and one-hundred forty-nine points, they will get team colors, VIPship, and title for 72 hours. IF they score between one-hundred fifty and one-hundred ninety-nine points, they will get team colors, VIPship and title for 96 hours. If they score 200 or more points, they will get team colors, VIPship and title for one week. Please note: in the case that both players send the same answer, one player will be asked to resubmit for the duplicated answers. This will be whichever player sent their answers second. In addition to the prize of colors, title, and VIPship, the winning team gets to continue on in the tournament! What Happens to the Losers? The losing team will be shamed! They will have to hoist a banner from the forum that beat them in their forum for a length of time equal to the amount of VIPship team won by the winning team in the bonus round. The banner will be chosen by the team members and the forum moderators. In addition, the losing team will be eliminated from the tournament. What happens at the end of the tournament? The team that wins the tournament will have ultimate bragging rights ... or at least as ultimate as you can get from winning a board-wide game on the Jedi Council Forums. In addition, each member of the team will be given two weeks of VIPship, title, and custom colors.
