    Hey trivia monsters, it's getting to be that time again.

    WHO WANTS NINE MONTHS OF AGONY TO PLAY A NEW ROUND OF SEQUEL TRILOGY TRIVIA?

    I swear to god we will not gestate a trivia baby this time!

    Joining me as fellow purveyor of all things ST trivia is the ever awesome and perennial trivia champion BenYodaDagobah. He got weaseled into helping so he doesn't win again kindly offered to help me come up with lots of questions.
    If you followed the last round, you'll be fairly familiar with the format. The entire game will run about the same length of time as the last round (about 4 months if you're curious.) There will be four rounds consisting of five questions each. And since the format will be the same, I'm shamelessly copying and pasting Teh Rulz from the ever fabulous Darth Chiznuk because why reinvent the wheel if I don't have to?

    The questions will mostly pertain to TLJ for obvious reasons but TFA spoilers are also par for the course. And you never know there might even be one from Episode IX. (Don't hold your breath, we haven't had a real spoiler in months. But if there are spoilers that come up, they are fair game.) There will be no NEU questions but behind the scenes docs, featurettes, etc. are all on the table. You must PM me your answers. DO NOT post them in thread. I will post a question on Sunday and you will have until the next Sunday to send me your answer before I post the answer and the next question. Since we are all on different time zones, it will be in the evening-ish in the North American Time Zones.

    Bonus questions may or may not include Rogue One stuff in bonus rounds, but it won't be a weekly challenge as, well, this is the Sequel Trilogy Trivia Extravaganza, not the Sequel to the Prequel which is the Prequel to the Prequel of the Sequel Trilogy.

    Now on to the Rules and whatnot:

    ROUND ONE: Five questions each worth one point. This will be the easiest of the rounds and any player with four points or over will advance to round two.

    ROUND TWO: Slightly harder questions and this round will contain a twist. Along with answering the questions you will also be required to risk a certain amount of your points. A maximum of three points and a minimum of one. You answer correctly and you will receive the points you gambled but if you answer incorrectly you will lose them. If at any point you have no points left to risk for the next question you will be eliminated... for now. Users with twelve points or more will advance to the final round.

    THE REDEMPTION ROUND: This round is for anyone who has been eliminated during the first two rounds. The same rules for round one apply here. The player with the most points after this round will reenter the game for the fourth and final round. There will be no tie breakers so if there is more than one player with the most points at the end of the round those players will all advance to the final round. But wait... "I was eliminated in the first round! How can I compete with the other players with so many more points?" you might be asking. Don't worry you'll have a chance...


    THE FINAL SUDDEN DEATH ROUND: You guessed it... if you miss a question in this final round you're out of the contest. Answer wisely. The player with the most amount of points at the end or the last player standing will win the game!

    If need be there will be a tie breaker at the end of the final round which will be explained if we get to that point. The winner of the contest will receive a custom game winner title and colors for two weeks. The losers... get nothing.

    NOTE: This is meant to be a fun and lighthearted contest. That means absolutely NO ARGUMENTS of any kind will be tolerated in this thread. If it occurs the posts will be deleted. Well, I don't really have deletion capabilities as I'm not a moderator. But pretend I have the deletion button of doom and just promise to play nice with each other, mmmkay?

    2018ST TRIVIA EXTRAVAGANZA WILL START JANUARY 7, 2017.

    Good Luck and May the Trivia Be With You!

    If this game doesn't last at least until the 20th Anniversary ST Special Edition I will be sorely disappointed.
