    Okay it is just about time for the next round of PT Trivia to begin, I will have the first question posted later today. In the meantime, here are the rules and stuff:

    Format: There will still be three rounds with 5 questions each. Each participant should PM me their answers, please do not post answers in the thread itself. The winner(s) will be whoever has the most points at the end of the third round.

    First round:
    Basically I will come up with three clues about a character, movie, actor, etc. I will give the first clue and then everyone will have 2-3 days to answer. After the 2-3 days I'll provide another clue and then 2-3 days after that I will provide a final clue. Anyone who answers correctly after the first clue will be awarded 3 points, anyone who answers correctly after the 2nd clue gets 2 points, and if it takes the 3rd clue to get the answer correct you will get 1 point. In the first round you can guess after each clue, and I will inform you if you are correct or not so that you know if you need to keep guessing after each clue. (10 points needed to advance)

    Second round:
    Same as the first round except that clues will become harder and more vague. You will also only be allowed to guess two times in this round, and after a second incorrect guess you are done with the question with no points. I will not let you know if your answer is correct or not either this round until points are given out. (20 points needed to advance)

    Third round:
    Again, the clues will be harder and more vague. You also will only be allowed one guess, so you'll need to either be very sure when you answer or decide if the risk is worth it to get max points.

    An example of how this will play out:

    First round question:
    #1 This character was played by Samuel L. Jackson

    Player 1 guesses Mace Windu
    Player 2 guesses Anakin Skywalker

    Player 1 is awarded 3 points and is done with this question.
    I tell player 2 they are incorrect and they will wait for the next clue.
    #2 This character had a purple lightsaber
    This time Player 2 guesses Mace Windu and is awarded 2 points and does not need the final clue.

    The second round would play out the same way except only 2 guesses are allowed and I do not tell everyone if they were correct or not, leaving them to decide if they need to change their answer or not after additional clues. The third round is the same except you only get the one guess. This should allow for some fun strategy in the 2nd and 3rd rounds with people having to decide if they should risk answering after the first clue or waiting until the next clues.....and I'll warn you now that the clues will become harder and more vague, meaning that there could be multiple answers that fit the first clue. For example a clue could be something like:

    #1 One of the Jedi who confronted Palpatine in his office in ROTS.

    Do you risk a guess after this clue or wait until the next one? :)

    If any of this doesn't make sense or you have questions please let me know!!

    Other rules:

    Questions will be exclusive to the PT era movies - note that this may include BTS material. However, no knowledge of EU/Legends continuity will be necessary
    As this is the internet and I can't stalk you all, nothing's stopping you from using Google or Wookieepedia to look up the answers. In fact, you'll probably have to.

    Also, please make sure to click on "watch thread" so that you get notifications about postings. With 20 people I'm not going to tag everyone every time because that will require a bit more work than I'd like and half the time I don't think the tags work anyways.

    Previous Winners:

    Okay so time for the first question. Remember, in this round you can guess after each clue and I will let you know if you are correct or not. Everyone will have 48 hours to provide an answer with this clue. Some time after 48 hours I will post the next clue (you can still get your answer in for 3 points anytime before I post the next clue). If everyone answers correctly before the 2nd clue we will just move on to the next question. Always make sure to pay attention to what I'm asking for, be it the actor, the character, or whatever, answering the name of an actor when I'm looking for a character will not be accepted as a correct answer. We will start out a bit easier but the clues will get more vague and with more possible answers as we go on.




    Question 1: Which character am I describing?

    First clue: This character was voiced by Lindsay Duncan (3 points)

    Oh yeah that reminds me.....posting that you sent your answer is completely optional. In fact, you can come up with some nice strategy and post that you sent your answer even if you didn't if you think it will help or post answer sent after each clue to throw people off.

    Only one question to clarify: if we guess the first clue, we shoudn't answer the next two or we could answer them (for extra points) for example?

    Once you answer correctly you are done until the next question. (So 3 is the max points you can get)

    I'm sorry but there has only been one person to survive the intense training needed to become the Superninja and you're looking at him. Or at least his avatar that is. ;)
