    Starting in the next few weeks, me and my illustrious partner in crime CrazyOldHermit will be starting an official EU sponsored challenge. Every two weeks, one of the fan clubs here in the EU will be presenting a trivia quiz of questions that are relevant to their club's topic and you, the EUCers will have the opportunity to test your knowledge of the Expanded Universe by answering these questions!

    First, the format. Quiz 1 will be sponsored by Bardan_Jusik and our very own Mandalorian Fan Club! They will work together [suggested in a pm setting] to compile 10-20 questions that will be posted here as a quiz. To answer the questions, please send me a PM with the words "Quiz Answers" with the appropriate number or name of the quiz as the PM title. (This is to help me keep track of my inbox) At the end of the two weeks, using the answer key provided by the club who made the quiz, I'll inform everyone of the winner, and the next quiz will begin.

    Second, the Rules.
    1. No posting answers in the thread. Feel free to discuss the quiz, but not the specific questions. (Though it's totally okay to discuss previous quizzes.)
    2. No wookiepedia.
    3. No checking the books.
    This is trivia! However, we cannot enforce these rules, so it's the honor system.

    Third, Prizes
    The only prize is bragging rights, and the ability to feel even more vastly superior over everyone else than you already do. :p

    Fourth, Why you should play.
    Because it'll be awesome, and I plan on beating you in every quiz! :p So please join us!

    For those interested in making a quiz.
    First off, AWESOME! Secondly, just pm either me or CrazyOldHermit and ask that your club or interest group be put on the list. We'll get back to you and let you know.

    If I could participate I think I would have known around 15 of the answers, which surprises me :p I wouldn't have thought to know that many.

    Now just to pass the time, and bump the thread, I have some bonus questions to toss in that anyone can answer, including members of the Mandalorians Fan Club that came up with the previous 20 questions. You can answer these bonus question in this thread, first come, first serve. Remember to PM you answers to Zarkinfrood for the main contest.

    Bonus Question A) Name the Mandalorians that we know by name who fought against the Yuuzhan Vong on Caluula Station?

    I know. I was talking about of the extra question I added in, not the contest proper.

    A guess would likely get you 50% of the answer. :) For instance how many Mandalorians can you name that you know were around during the war with the Vong?

    Still time to get your answers in to Zarkinfrood!

    Give it a try, I think your odds of winning are excellent based on what I've heard thus far. It doesn't hurt to guess either :)
