    My apologies if this has been suggested before.

    I just took a Star Wars quiz, and it gave me an idea. Maybe we could have a section of forum for making our own Star Wars trivia quizzes and test each others knowledge.

    I dunno, just felt like a fun idea. Let me know what you guys think!

    We do have a Games tag in the Community forum. You could ask the forum mods if you could start something there.

    If they say 'no' you could also try the Star Wars Community forum mods. There are already SW-related games going on in there.

    Also, there's a 'Star Wars Jeopardy' thread in the SWC forum. I do plan to revive it as soon as DRL gives me a chance. Please feel free to share any ideas and/or suggestions you might have for the next round.

    Hi. :) Star Wars trivia games can sometimes play out like 'internet scavenger hunts', considering that you can't prevent players from looking up information. Regardless, the first installment of 'Star Wars Jeopardy' was a blast.

    We never crowned a champion. DRL forced me to take a break before I could host the 'final jeopardy' round. However, I plan to complete the initial game. During this upcoming week, I'll tag the players that are eligible for 'final jeopardy'. If we get some wagers, great. If no one is interested, the player with the most points becomes champ by default. Then, we can start the next installment. :D

    I can certainly use some assistance with hosting. Perhaps multiple hosts can prevent long breaks from occurring. Another possibility is reverting back to a simpler game:
    -The player that answers correctly gets the points, AND asks the next question.
    Anyway, we'll see what happens next week.

    Thanks for your kind offer to help with questions and categories. I'll be sure to shoot you a PM. Here's to Star Wars trivia! [face_peace]

    Jair Crawford - FYI, we had a trivia game a few months ago in Classic Trilogy, hosted by Darth_Laudrup:

    Good fun (and not just because of who won;)), we never got around to having another, but if anyone would like to host a similar game in CT or Saga, go right ahead, just PM me, MOC Yak Face (CT) or Lt.Cmdr.Thrawn (Saga) with any relevant details.

    Hi. :) I tagged the players that are eligible for 'final jeopardy'. You can find the Star Wars Jeopardy thread in the SWC forum. Please feel free to post any ideas and/or suggestions there.
