    How well do you think you know your forum?

    Are you willing to put your knowledge to the test?

    Then now is the perfect opportunity! Non Star Wars Role Playing and Non Star Wars Fan Fiction are going head to head for the inter-forum challenge of the year!

    Sign up here for your forum, and we'll split you into teams (size to be determined based on number of players). You and your teammates will have to answer questions about your forum . . . and about [NSWRPF/NSWFF]!

    Winners will get pride and fortune--and hopefully everyone will have fun and learn a little something about the fourms!

    Sign-ups will last until April 6, so get in on the game!

    Basically what it says on the tin. Once signups are over, we'll divide you into groups (or, if you prefer, you can sign up as a group and tell us so - we're not too fussed on this point) and release the trivia questions, which will be about both NSWFF and NSWRPF. First team to answer them all wins!

    What . . . kind of questions would we have to expect? Sounds like fun, but I really don´t know any of both boards terribly well.

    Ditto, but I do have to say the idea sounds like it could be fun!

    Some of the questions relate to the history of the boards, some to specific threads, some to specific inside jokes, and some are just silly. :p This is just a fun little competition between the two boards. :)

    A total mishmash, like Peng said--with varying levels of difficulty :p And not to worry--they are things you can look up by going through the forums (and you won't be working alone). You should totally sign up!!

    Ah excellent! It was a fun little game. Had me nostalgic with the NSWRPF questions and intrigued for the NSWFF ones. I have to give credit to the detective work of Trieste, who did the vast majority of the legwork for our team!

    For my part, I was particularly proud of getting the Molly/Moriarty question...that one was fiendishly tricky to locate.
