    Welcome to the SFF: Films/TV Trivia Contest!

  2. RULES:


  3. - This contest will run continually, alternating between a Movie portion and a Television portion. Once the Movie trivia contest is done, the Television trivia contest will begin as soon as the winners of the previous contest have their VIPship expire (approximately one week). Once that Television contest is done, the new Movie contest will begin as soon as the winners of the previous contest have their VIPship expire (approximately one week). And so on and so on. The title of this thread will be continually updated to tell you what stage the current contest is at so that you don't miss the sign-ups for the new contest.

    - One of the biggest differences between this contest and any other regular trivia contest is that it's not going to be individually based. The SFF Trivia contest will be based off of a team effort. Each User, once they sign up, will randomly be placed into teams of 2. Once the sign ups are completed the teams will be posted in this thread. Once you have been randomly placed into your teams, each team will have 24 hours to get acquainted with each other and make a name for themselves that will be used to represent their team throughout the contest. If a team doesn't get their name request in after the 24 hour limit, a name will be selected for you. Once the teams, and their names, have been set, the contest will begin with the first question being posted.

    - We will play a maximum of 15 questions. If more then one team answers the 15th question correctly, then every team remaining is declared the winner and given the appropriate rewards designated.

  4. Questions:


  5. - The questions for the contest will be varied and will focus on many different areas of Sci-Fi and Fantasy. As mentioned above, there will be two separate contests, one for Movies and one for Television. Each contest will be based solely off one movie and one television show. For instance, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire might be the featured movie for the entire portion of the Movie contest and X-Files might be the featured Television show for the entire portion of the Television contest.

    -Jedi_Master_Conor has been designated as the game host for this trivia contest. Please note that if there is a controversial question that may contain multiple answers, he has the final say.

    - Remember, the trivia questions will only be based on Movies or Television Shows only. If there is a question that revolves around an event that happened in the movie version and the book version of a certain topic, go with the movie version always! Remember, this is the Movies/TV Forum after all. :)

  6. Contestants:


  7. - There will be a maximum of sixteen contestants per game, which will be branched out into 8 different teams. To sign up please copy and paste the list found below into a post and add your username. Each team will have two days (48 hours) to answer each question. We will accept no answers once the two days has expired. The timing period begins when the question is posted. If all the teams answer before the 48 Hour period is up, Conor has the option of proceeding to the next question. So always keep an open eye on this thread so you don't miss a posted question.

    - Only one person from your team will need to answer for your team. It's probably a good idea to designate a spokesperson to avoid confusion.

  8. Answers:


  9. Please answer each question by sending Jedi_Master_Conor a PM. When sending a PM, make sure to have the following subject line: "SFF Trivia Answer". DO NOT post answers or hints in this thread as this can get you, and possibly your team, eliminated from the game. If you are unclear as to

    Just curious to know the questions are only based on Hollywood movies/tv-shows?

    And what happens if teammate A sends an answer and an hour later teammate C sends a different answer?

    this trivia contest will cover various movies and tv shows in the sci-fi and fantasy universe.

    to the 2nd part of your question. as said in the rules in the 1st post the 3 teammates should collaborate on one answer through PM's and then agree on one person to send the final answer to me

    Right. To Conor you listen.

    Obviously you won't be eliminated if more then one teammate sends in the answer. But just to avoid confusion, you should just designate one person to handle PMing the host.

    Ok that answers one question :)

    That didn't really answer my question :p It was if the Sci-fi and Fantasy universes will be based on English productions?

    Mainly yes. But don't the same TV shows and Movies play everywhere? The only difference being the time aired, right?
