    Welcome to Round Three, the Final Round of Game 1

    Now, I know everyone might be thinking that we are playing to the highest amount of points possible. While true, there is something different in the third round. I want to reveal the most important aspect of round three -- it is Chiznuk's favorite game: Single Elimination. What does that mean? Well to put it into simple terms, you only have one shot at answering a question flawlessly. Remember those "be specific" type questions? You could call them "practice for the third round." :p

    Example of how it works: Let's say everyone but Ibr gets a question right. Everyone but Ibr will move on to Question 11. It does not matter how many points you have, it is a matter of answering the question perfectly to move onto the next question. So everyone here is at stake.

    Rules Recap
    • The questions will be ranging from 1-3 points.
      • I am using a random number generator for all points (1-3), so I am not catering to anyone. :)
    • Unlike the first two rounds, you may not send me another answer or change the first sent answer.
    • Once you send me an answer, don't forget to post in this thread! Saying "answer sent" will work.
    Possible Game Scenarios
    • Important: the maximum possible points (and the default winner of the game) will be set to 25. No one should be able to have 26+ points, unless it's a sudden death match.
    • Question 15 will be the last. But if someone gets to 25 before anyone else, the game is over and that person wins.
    • If there's two people (or more) with 25 points, a sudden death match will commence (same single elimination rules apply).
    • Let's say no one gets to 25 and we reach Question 15: The person with the highest amount of points wins.
    Our Final Six Contestants
    1. K'Kruhk - 16
    2. lbr789 - 15
    3. Darth Chiznuk - 14
    4 Count Yubnub. - 11
    5. BoromirsFan - 11
    6. Garth Maul - 10

    You have until 3 PM to post questions/comments. Question 10 will begin then!

    So... it was a bonus question but not actually worth anything? So I got all three questions correct for nothing? :p

    OK, well good luck to those still in the running.

    Not for nothing, you were at 7 points. Both Questions 6 and 7 threw you off (I think you didn't answer one, if I am not mistaken). Had things went well, I am sure that you would be in the third round man. :)

    You are more than welcome to join Game 2 in the future.

    Right, I know I went from 7 to 9 points with the ET question... just couldn't make it to 10 points with the bonus question like I thought I might be able to. But it's no problem, I probably would have gotten killed off soon in this new round anyway. :p

    That's right, pick on me :p

    Ah well, anything to distract me from an English paper I'm supposed to finish by 5:00 PM today! ;)

    @eht13 Yeah, it was marked as 2 possible points. Basically that was Round Two's default point limit. In Round Three, I will be using a random number generator. You did well, so I'm sure you would've done the same in the 3rd Round. :)

    @lbr789 :p But not to worry, I'm sure you'll be fine.

    I am trying . . . :p
    But it's not my fault that SW is so much more fun than anything by Herman Melville. ;)
    *sigh* Leaving now.

    True, but Moby-Dick is a pretty cool novel.

    I am happy to have made Round 3. It appears mathematically unlikely that I will win, but I already knew that. :p

    @GGrievous I just wanted to let you know that I'm on a family vacation at the moment. I have access to the internet so I'll be able to stay in the competition but if I miss a deadline I apologize. Good luck everybody round three sounds awesome! :)

    @Darth Chiznuk If you sadly cannot make a deadline, you will be eliminated. :( Let's hope that's not the case!

    @Garth Maul Maybe someone with more points will get the next question wrong. :p

    Question 10
    Fill in the Blanks and be specific: On the Outer Rim world ____, ____ ____ was joined by a group of ____ ____ of the ____ ____ ____, led by Commander ____.
    Hint: If you see "____ ____" that means it's more than one word.

    Generator says worth: 2 points.

    You have until Wednesday March 27 to send me an answer. Good luck!

    I could always go back up to GG's post & edit your score, so you can keep playing.

    Haha, nah, I'm good. As I said, I would have gotten killed off pretty soon in this new round anyway. :p

    I know. :) I don't expect to miss a deadline but you never know. Something could come up and if it does I'll bow out gracefully and fill your inbox with cuss filled insults! :p

    Answer sent.

    Remember if I get it wrong... I own the Hat. To eliminate me from the tournament is to eliminate the Hat. And that cannot be allowed ;)

    I think you can make that 4 :p
