    Thats right, Videogames Trivia Contest is back, and this time its going to be general video game trivia, not specifically related to Star Wars games. Within the next 24 hours I will post the complete rules of the contest, but for those who are accustomed to other trivia contests on the JC, it will follow the same basic rules.

    For the rest of the week I will be compiling the questions and putting them in posting format, so that when its time for the next question everything will be good to go. We'll start sign ups now and we will see how full they are in a week. Hopefully by then we will have a full roster and will be good to go!

    As far as I know, I didn't - though it is possible that I might have made a fecal-related typo in my username...

    Rules:

    The rules for the contest are similar to all the trivia contests done on other boards and this board previously.

    Questions:

    The questions for the contest will be varied and will focus on video games from all generations, new and old. Please note that if there is a controversial question that may have multiple answers I have the final say.

    Contestants:

    To sign up please copy and paste the list found below into a post and add your username. The contestants will have two days (48 hours) to answer each question. I will accept no answers once the two days have expired. The timing period begins when the next question is posted.

    Answers:

    Please answer each question by sending myself a PM. I ask that when possible you provide the source of your answer. DO NOT post answers or hints in this thread as this can get you removed from the game. If you are unclear as to what a question is asking, please post it in the thread. I will respond as soon as I can and if I deem necessary I will reset the time clock.

    Second Chances:

    Each player has one second chance denoted by an asterisk ( * ) next to their username. If a player answers a question incorrectly, they lose their second chance but are allowed to remain in the game. If a player who no longer has a second chance answers incorrectly, he/she is eliminated. After question ten, second chances are removed.

    Elimination:

    a.) If you answer a question incorrectly then you will lose you second chance but remain in the game.
    b.) If you answer a question incorrectly after losing your second chance you are eliminated.
    c.) If you do not answer a question than you are eliminated.
    d.) If you are eliminated you will be banned for 24 hours. You may still post with a sock during this period.
    e.) If no one correctly answers a question no one shall be eliminated and the game will continue with a new question.

    Withdrawing From the Contest:

    Prior to Question 10 you are allowed to withdraw from the contest without a ban. After Question 10 you may withdraw from the contest but you will still recieve a 24 hour ban.


    Winners:

    The winner will receive VIP-ship and a custom title for a period of time determined by a mod (I'm working on figuring out the time). The winner will also receive the ability to use any color combination that they choose within this time. Please note that the use of colors should not be abused. We will play a maximum of 15 questions, with the 15th question being sudden death. The winner/s will get VIP-ship and a custom title for 1 week. That person/s will be able to use whatever color combination they choose. However, the use of colors is a privileged and should not be abused.


    Sudden Death:

    If we reach a point where there are two players remaining and those players have each answered three consecutive questions correctly the winner will be decided via a sudden death question. A time will be set where both players can be online at the same time as myself. I will post the final question at the predetermined time. The player that sends me the correct answer first will be the winner. If by the odd chance I receive the PMs at the same time [according to the board clock] then we will have joint winners.

    Procedure:

    You may PM a friend whom you believe knows the answer but you may not post the question anywhere on the JC boards. Bear in mind that mass PMing can result in a ban.

    I'm trying to make it as varied as possible, but with respects to people who haven't been gaming ever since Super Mario Bros. I'm not going to ask what the first line spoken in the third level of Where In the World is Carmen Sandiego? is.

















    Where in the U.S.A was way better anyway.
