    It has been a while but FanForce Trivial Pursuit is back with your same All Knowing host me and a couple of rule changes which we'll get to in a moment!
    Do you think you know everything there is to know about the Star Wars universe? How about your Expanded Universe knowledge? Well, now is the time for everyone to dig out their thinking caps because boy do we have a game for you. Without any further delay, may I present....

    The Official Star Wars Trivial Pursuit for FanForce!!

    That's right! Sunday's will mark the beginning of a new game that will be presented in the FFC (FanForce Community).

    Official Rules(that can change at any time)

    Team Construction and Rules:
    - Teams will be made of 3 users.
    - Each team must submit it's team name and the city thier from.
    - Each team must submit it's team captain and roster.
    - Multiple teams from a chapter cannot compete.
    - Each Team must represent a FanForce Chapter.
    - Each team will nominate a leader and that person would submit the answers.

    Game Rules:
    - The cut off time for sign ups is at 9pm board time on each Wednesday before the game starts.
    - A maximum of 20 teams will be taken per game.
    - If any team member other than the nominated leader submits your team answers you will be penalized 3 points.
    - Teams may discuss answers via PM but no discussion in the thread or your team gets disqualified.
    - Answers must be submitted to the appropriate Mod by PM.
    - A 24-hour time limit to answer the questions.
    - The team with the least amount of points after each game gets eliminated.
    - If there are any ties after games, then all tied teams are elimanated, except for the final.

    Game Progression as follows:
    - Sunday Night 5PM board time: Questions will be released; the number of questions will vary from week to week. There will be at least 10 questions per week.
    - Monday Night 5PM board time: Deadline for Submission of answers.
    - Each week one team will be eliminated until we have one definitive winner. No awards will be handed out until the end of the contest.

    Prize For Winners:
    - Vip Colors. Winners will have to use a standard of white bold text, a blue background and a yellow border.
    - A Custom Title so you don't have to touch your signature.
    - VIP-ship for the whole team for 1 month. Winning team posted on FanForce.Net.

    REGARDING WINNERS: DO NOT ABUSE YOUR VIP POWERS. IF YOU ARE SEEN USING AN ADMIN/CR ICON OR STARTING THREADS IN THE CENSUS AREA, THERE WILL BE AN IMMEDIATE TERMINATION TO YOUR TEAM'S VIP STATUS AND YOUR TEAM WILL BE BANNED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. THIS SERVES AS A WARNING.

    If you have any questions regarding the game, please feel free to post them in this thread or PM me.

    **I will not be home for the next two hours so if I don't answer or reply right away dont kill me.**

    I bet there will be a team representing the German Speaking Fan Force, but they are all offline....it is almost midnight.
    I´d love to compete, but I´ll be gone for a week.

    Could you save a spot for the GSFF?

    Thanks!

    Ok, question: you said the Expanded universe, and just to clarify this, it means all books, comics, games, movies (the originals), etc., correct?

    Oh, and could you save a spot for the Rocky Mountain FanForce, im assembling a team right now and should be operational by tonite...

    "Oh, and could you save a spot for the Rocky Mountain FanForce, im assembling a team right now and should be operational by tonite..."

    "Could you save a spot for the GSFF? "

    No I can't, save any spots. Make sure you guys post your full roster by tomorrow's deadline or you can't compete.


    "Good job on getting this up and running again Rox. How were your finals?"

    I haven't had them yet and truth be told I'm way behind because my portfolio was stolen, but I already told people that I would start up again this week so here I am.


    "Ok, question: you said the Expanded universe, and just to clarify this, it means all books, comics, games, movies (the originals), etc., correct?"

    Yes, questions will come from all aspects of Star Wars whether you or anyone else considers them cannon. I'm an equal oppurtunity info seeker.


    I also want to clarify the new format of the game. Once all the teams have been set in place and the questions have been answered we will elimanate the weakest team(s) and move onto to the next week no winner. Just the new week. Then the same will foloow the next week with the remaining teams. I will send out the questions and after they are answered the weakest team will be elimanted. This will continue each week until 1 team is remaining.

    Be patient. ;) It's 4:22pm here in Central Europe, many people didn't log in yet. I know for a fact that the GSFF will send in at least one team. :D And I'm sure Sweden will participate again as well, and maybe some other contries too. :)

    The Minnesota Wild will again be participating. I have to make sure the member list will be the same, so I can't officially sign us up right now.
