    It's Forum Feud!

    What is it you ask? "Forum Feud" is a forum wide tournament were teams represented different boards will compete against each other like the classic TV Games Show "Family Feud."

    That's right, it's time to play the Forum Feud!

    Here's how it works:

    Teams of five will be assembled. They will compete in games against other teams of five and work their way through a tournament, until we have our grand winner.

    That's the basics, now let's get into the real nuts and bolts of how to play:

    Assembling a Team

    A team of five will be made up of regulars representing a forum. So, five users will join as a representative of the Arena, five others representing YJCC, five other the Senate, five others EUC, etc.

    It is up to individual forum moderators to decide how they want to form their teams. A forum may have more than one team (i.e. if fifteen people want to play for JCC, JCC can have three teams). Two forums may combine to form a team (i.e. if three people from WNU and two people from Fan Sites want to play, they can join together, or if seven people from EUC want to play and eight people from RPF want to play, we can have one RPF, one EUC, and one joing EUC/RPF team).

    Once a team is assembled, it needs to be reported via PM to the game host, DarthIntegral, along with their team colors (face and background), the forum(s) represented, and the team nickname.

    Playing a Game

    Once sign-ups are complete, we start to play the Feud. 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.

    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.

    The team that loses will be forced to fly the flag (put up a banner) of the win

    Glad to hear it! :)

    So, I guess our sign-up list looks like this so far:

    1. Gobi-1
    2. Captain_Typho
    3. MarcusP2
    4. HanSolo29
    5.

    One more to get our first full team, then it would be nice to have some alternates. We also might want to think of colors for our team.

    To be honest I think our team colors should be like Gobi-1's. And only because those colors is what closely reflects the Indiana Jones typefont.

    Welcome aboard, Jango! :)

    As for colors, I agree that Gobi's colors are pretty close to the Indy font and I have no problems using them if that's alright with everyone else.

    It looks like we have our five! If I understand this correctly, we need a few alternatives as well, right?

    You don't *need* alternatives. Just that if someone were to disappear for a little while during the game, you might want to have one so you can seamlessly replace that person.

    Also, don't forget to PM me with the final team, with captain, order, colors, and name.

    Glad to see this forum participating!

    Do you guys want to change the order of team members or keep it like it is? I would like to bump HanSolo29 up to 2nd position since she is co-moderator.

    Yes, it is true. I had it in my profile for the longest time and people still get confused. So, don't feel bad. You're not the only one. :p

    How long is this game expected to go? I would need an alternate if it's longer than 3 months.

    Marcus, it's hard to give an answer to that, as it really will depend on how many teams we get. I'm hoping to get each team a game a week as a goal, and running multiple games at a time with ~20 teams, we should be done in less than three months.


    Oh, and the Joneses are officially registered!

    I'd like to thank you guys for registering to play. I am thrilled with the interest in this game. 19 teams signed up to represent 13 different forums. In the tracking thread in Comms, you can see the entire bracket I've generated, through the use of a random number generator. For your information, The Joneses' first game is a first-round game against Inter-Spectacular Hyper Galactic Great Census & Games Brigade (of DOOM), representing Census and Games.

    Good luck!

    We're currently shooting for July 10th for the opening round games to start. A couple of logistical issues to deal with first, though.

    Whether it's laughable or absurd, this is the path that ALL great men walk! If there is a wall in our way, we'll destroy it! If there's no road, we'll pave it with our own hands! The magma in our hearts is blazing like fire! The perfect fusion, CENSUS & GAMES! All of you, JUST WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE ARE?!

    The game has been started! It has been placed in its own forum, under the JC Community category. I've so far posted only the first game, but later this morning I will get the other two opening round games started as well.

    Gobi lets change the title of this thread from sign ups to game underway.

    Also, I think it might be a good idea to get everyone's aim on the team via pm so we can discuss answers with each other. I don't think this is illegal as it is done on the actual game show itself as well.
