    Suggestions for next game:

    - Provide correct answers at the end of each set of questions, along with a score update.
    - Keep the team format, perhaps allow players to choose their team if they wish, and pair up those who don't have teammates when the game starts.

    I'n not so worried about the answers being revealed, but score updates would be good as they help maintain a sense of competition between teams.

    I do however, think the game needs to be punchier. It's too long, too drawn out.

    Anyway, we're still waiting for the next set of questions! :p

    The reason I suggest providing answers is so that we know which ones we missed. But the score updates would be of a higher priority, I agree.

    Hey, hey, you cougher you.

    I would like to apologize to the teams which are still involved. I have been dealing with jury duty issues here and I just got them resolved today. I actually was part of a prospective pool of jurors in a courtroom before I was excused from my duty. Anyway, the game will continue later today at some point after I have come up with the next round of questions. Once again, I am sorry that my jury duty ran into the planning of this game. In the future, I will make all attempts to keep the game as fast moving as possible. Look forward to the next set of questions sometime today.

    I think it would be beneficial if (where possible) you made advance notice of the fact you may not be able to keep up with the game, that's all. We don't need a detailed explanation though, as I'm quite sure you wouldn't neglect the game without good reason.

    Again I would like to apologize for the delay in this first installment of the game. In future installments there will be advance notices made when the schedule cannot be strictly adhered to. That being said,

    The next category is: The Super Bowl

    200 - The trophy given to the team that wins is named after this man
    400 - This team lost the highest scoring Super Bowl ever
    600 - These are the only two teams to rematch in the Super Bowl the very next year
    800 - This is the only stadium to host consecutive Super Bowls
    1000 - The Super Bowl with the only wide receiver to win the MVP with less than 100 receiving yards took place on this day

    I scarcely even follow the NFL, and I still think thats the easiest set of questions we've had to date.

    Posting the answers, after the round is up, may actually make this thread a little more interesting to users that aren't participating, but may like to join in a later game.

    Just an observation. :)

    I get the impression that RM likes to see people beg.

    Dead. To. Me.

    //banned (not that I could do that, but yeah)

    I will be posting a score update with the questions for this category(the 12th and final of Double Jeopardy) in a little bit. In the future, I will take into consideration those ideas that could help the game or would encourage more to play or would make the game more fun or competitive.
