    Straight from the old JC forum, this is the Prequel Trilogy Trivia Challenge 2.0!
    Thanks to the PT forum’s dictator mod, Sx3, I was able to revitalize this old game.

    Welcome to Game 2! Beginning on May 25, 2013

    [​IMG]


    Before I get into the rules and what not, I would like to start by saying that I know some might remember this game, while others (new to this forum) might not. This game is open for everyone, and not just the frequent posters/viewers of the PT forum. It might be easy for some or hard, but it depends on how well you know the PT and not the EU (more on that later).

    Prequel Trilogy Trivia Challenge Rebooted 2.0 – Game 2

    About your host:
    I, GGrievous, hosted Game 1 previously. I also won Game 21 of the pre-rebooted game years ago.
    ________________________________________________________________________________
    GAME RULES:
    Updated May 25, 2013
    1. Since this is not occurring face-to-face and since this is the internets, honestly it’s up to you if you want to use Wookieepedia as a source (or google).
    2. DVD, novels, source books, et all can be used. See "Wuts Cheating?" below. Any discussion of torrents or illegal downloads are prohibited. If you ever discuss this or if I catch you, you will be eliminated and will be reported to Sx3. Forum rules still apply.
    3. Please follow "Questions, Elimination Guidelines." The information will help you!
    4. You may not post your answer in this thread. Should this occur, I will ask Sx3 to delete the post. PM me!
    While not required, you may say you submitted your answer to me via pm in this thread. It does make things easier. :p
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    QUESTION GUIDELINES
    Total of 15 questions. From question #1 through #15, it will be going from easy to hard.
    Like Game 1, I will be alternating between Sunday and Wednesdays for Question Days. Answers & Points will be given at 3 PM CST.

    For questions 1-5 (Easy Round 1) -- You will be given four days (Question posted on a Sunday). On Wednesday of the same week, question answer will be posted and points will be given. After that, a new question will be given.

    Eliminations should occur following these first 5 questions.

    For questions 6-10 (Moderate Round 2) –You will be given four days (Question posted on Sunday). On Wednesday of the same week, question answer will be posted and points will be given. After that, a new question will be given.

    For questions 11-15 (Hard Round 3) – You will be given four days (Question posted on Sunday). On Wednesday of the same week, question answer will be posted, points given. What's next? Please see Eliminations, Possible Outcomes & Playoffs below.

    Questions 1-5 are worth 1 point per question.
    Questions 6-10 are worth 2 points per question.
    Questions 11-15 will be determined via a number generator (3 points max)
    Possible Bonus Questions will be worth 1 Point

    - If you want to change your answer, do so in your original “answer sent” pm that you sent me.

    - Question answers must be submitted by the due dates (Sunday or a Wednesday). Anything after 3 PM CST will not count nor will I accept answer changes.

    - Tell me that you’re going to change it so I know. I will not accept any changes in the third round. Once you send me an answer, that will be your final answer.

    ELIMINATIONS, POSSIBLE OUTCOMES & PLAYOFFS

    After the first 5 questions, anyone under 5 points will be eliminated. There is a pattern for the next 2 rounds as well. Anyone under 10 points following Round 2 is eliminated. Anyone under 15 points after the 3rd Round is eliminated.

    Whoever has the highest amount of points following the 3rd round is the winner!

    If everyone, but one, is eliminated by the 3rd round (say we are on Question 10, as an example), the last man or woman standing will be winner by default. Consider yourself the victor.

    What if there's more than one person standing after the third round? We will then enter a "playoff." The rules will be explained at that time. This is new to Game 2.

    _______________________________________________________________________________

    SEND ME YOUR ANSWERS! DON'T POST THEM IN THIS THREAD!
    Basically it would be very simple if I just gave you a question and you had to answer it (either by looking it up or knowing by memory), so to keep things interesting, you must tell me your answer and why you think it’s correct. I will only be giving out points for those who have the correct answer. I will be using the statement as a check so I know none of you guys are cheating or randomly guessing.

    "WUTS CHEATING?"
    Cheating =/= looking at your sources, whether it’s a DVD, book, source book, or online. Again, this is the internet and we’re not face-to-face. (See Rules #1 and #2 above)

    "No EU?"
    As said above, all questions will be about the PT only -- films and perhaps its novelizations. I will not post any EU questions and that includes the Clone Wars (between AOTC and ROTS only. Clone Wars depicted in the films might appear).

    As a rule of thumb, except to see questions relating to:
    - The Phantom Menace
    - Attack of the Clones
    - Revenge of the Sith
    - Behind the scenes of the films

    Any questions or comments could be posted in this thread. I have it watched so I'll be able to answer your question/comment ASAP.

    These rules may change at any time. I'll notify you guys in this thread.
