    Why did I only get one point for that?

    Because you only answered one of the two.

    I replied "It's a part of Anakin's first lightsaber"--how is that not answering both questions?

    1. Is this a) a part of something or b) a standalone item (not a part of something else)

    That was the part you answered. I can't give you both based on your answer alone because I need an owner, not just "it's part of Anakin's first lightsaber." Do you see what I mean?

    No, I don't. The sentence "It's a part of Anakin's first lightsaber" contains the possessive formof the proper name Anakin, indicating the owner.

    But, you're the quiz master, they're your rules, so I'll play by them. Cheers.

    In SW, anyone could have a part or a whole of something, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they're the owner of it. There's a few examples that come to mind; i.e, Grievous' lightsaber collection. So if I were to say that you have a part of Anakin's lightsaber, does that mean that you're the owner? No. You have the part, but Anakin is the owner. For the question, it's a part of Anakin's lightsaber. But who actually owns it? Two parts to the question. I'm not cheating, but rather being fair. I can't give you both points because you only gave me one of the answers.

    I feel my luck may have run out but an answer for question 9 has been sent.

    I'm so stoked I'm the first one to answer :p

    Anakin's is possessive form. It implies ownership--that's what the word possessive means. Grievous' lightsaber collection is Grievous'; it means Grievous is the owner. If I have part of Anakin's lightsaber, that means Anakin is the owner. The answer to the question Who owns Anakin's lightsaber is included in the question.

    But, like I said, your game, your rules.

    Anyway, answer sent.

    It's not a difficult concept to grasp. Using what I said above, tack on the two answers.

    I'd be very surprised if I got this right. It was the only thing I could think of but I'm not sure if it counts. Oh well, my answer is sent. [face_nail_biting]

    Given that he's had more than one, I agree with you. Who else could own the first one he ever made? If making them wasn't such a big deal, Kenobi wouldn't have scolded Anakin for losing his.

    My question is: was Anakin's saber that was broken on Geonosis, one and the same?
    If so, then either Jango or Dooku owned the hilt of his first saber.

    Answer sent.

    And just for the record I am quiet envious of dear Uncle Palpy because of this. ;-)
    (I hope this doesn't give away too much)

    Well you're still one of the leaders of the game, and it is close a close race, so I wouldn't be surprised if you've got this one right too. :)

    Hope so. It was the first thing I thought of but like I said I don't think it counts. I'll keep it though because I can't think of anything else. Hope I don't fall behind because this is an extremely close contest.

    10 points or more gets you to round three. All of you made it. :)

    If we don't get this Question soon I will have to forfeit the game. Christmas is coming and I will be visiting family with no internet connection.

    So in case you post the next question and I don't answer I just wanted you to know the reason.

    I am sorry, but I am not able to effectively use the boards until midnight the 26th/27th of this month because of the Christmas Hollidays. So I guess since the next Question has not been posted yet and will most likely be posted between now and the 27th I will loose any chance of winning this game.

    Remember single elimination? Heading into round 3, we'll be doing single elimination. The question points are generated automatically and the questions are worth either 1, 2 or 3 points. Remember: the max set of points for round 3 is 25. If you incorrectly send me the wrong answer, or if it's partially correct, you will be eliminated. During round 3, you cannot resend me answers once they've been submitted. If you have any questions, please let me know. :)

    Question 10
    Once native on Naboo, this species is now common on an entirely different planet. Please name that species and the planet.
    Generator points: 1


    You have until Sunday the 29th to send me the answer. The game should then go back to its original Sunday-Wednesday, Wednesday-Sunday playing style.
