    Game one is already in progress so we are hoping to get into game 2 with two teams if we have enough people to participate. If you are interested in participating, please post here or PM me or Luke_Starkiller. If we can get two teams to participate, that would be great. We can come up with some cool names for the teams and whichever team wins the game, they get VIP status for three days. With VIP status you get to change your name color, be able to post more than one message a minute and other privileges of a demigod. Hehehe. Well just let me know and I and Luke_Starkiller can get the teams submitted for the next round.

    Dagnabbit, Hlmt, you beat me to it :p

    That's right ladies and germs, step right up and match withs agains the best the JC has to offer. You'ver always wanted the colors and the powers! Here's your chance for three days! There are 2 slots open on each team, plus another team of three if there is enough interest (we'll need someone to head that one up).

    Dude, you don't wanna be on my team. I am stupid when it comes to this stuff. I just wanna be an alternate. Go on DRK_HLT or MuttandSolo's team or Luke's team, they are far better than I, and heck they can use your EU knowledge.

    I have only one thing to say to the people who are hiding there and haven't joined one of the teams (I don't think we even have a full team yet):

    "You will join us. It is your destiny."

    Hey we have five folks, that's more than enough for a team. Why don't captains devise a strategy and pick from the folks signed up, if you can't be a captain this time you can be next time.

    I need someone strong in the EU side and someone that has other/miscellaneous knowledge, I'll comprise most of the OT and TPM knowledge.

    I am about the same as Mutt. I do know some of the "adult" EU novels, but none of the comics, RPG, CCG, or teen books.

    I believe Chissdude is "The Man" when it comes to EU stuff. I know some, but mostly the Thrawn Trilogy, SotP, VotF, and the NJO series. Almost anything OT as well.

    I am strong on EU, but I am no where near as good as Chissdude. I know some movies, but that's about it.

    Okay, I just PM'd Rox and he said that the sign-ups start tomorrow and that we can have as many teams as we want as long as we have enough people and make the deadline.

    So we need to get the ball rolling and get some teams started. So far it's myself(DRK_HLMT), Luke_Starkiller and MuttandSolo heading up teams. The teams consist of the captain and two other people. And we need to think up some names for the teams. Here are the names of the teams that entered the first round:

    Team 1: Satellite of Love 5pts
    Captain: Fanboy_solo
    Woofer
    JadePadawan

    Team 2: St. Louis I
    Captain: Princess_Robin
    Jedi_Tabee
    jedigal

    Team 3: St. Louis II 5pts
    Captain: yodaboy
    jobo
    Another.Sky.Walk.er..

    Team 4: Wuher's Habitués 5pts
    Captain: Morgaine
    ChimealHeltei
    TwiLekJedi

    Team 5: Canada 5pts
    Captain: Admiral_Thrawn60
    Entil'Zha
    Ian_Ball

    Team 6: The French Holocron 5pts
    Captain: akhun
    Eid3r
    Oryx-I

    Team 7: Rochester 5pts
    Captain: Mara-Jade-Skywalker
    Padawan_adri
    TheEmperorsHand

    Team 8: Conquerors of Canada 5pts
    Captain: JediLynx
    emilsson
    _SithSpawn_

    Team 9: The Sandcrawlers from Phoenix, AZ 5pts
    Captain: Idiots Array
    EmprsHandMick
    sideshow212

    Team 10: Waco's Bounty Hunters 5pts
    Captain: Amidala Starkiller
    BroodMcEto
    jango-joe1

    I was thinking sort of along the lines of
    CCFF Spork Team 1
    CCFF Spork team 2
    CCFF Whipped Cream Siths
    CCFF Victoria's Secret Rogues

    Or whatever you guys can think of. Throw out some good ones for us!!

    I'll head up CCFF Victoria's Squadron

    One question: What exactly do I need to do (Where to go?) to post my team?

    If he's willing I'd like to have Chissdude on my team and I'll need a volunteer for the third slot. First one to PM me a request gets the third slot. Chissdude, PM me if you'd like to be on Victoria's Squadron (VS for short)

    Join me and together we will rule the Net!

    Maybe DRK_HLMT would wanna be on your team Mutt. Mutt, read the information thread for how this works. I don't mind if you need someone and I can keep Chissdude in line, but you need someone better rounded in stuff than me. Try PMing Big Broadcastah, Mogook or Eva, but if you need me, I'm your gal. I'll even don VS stuff while we play. ;) I sent Chissdude a PM to get his buns over here or PM you. He usually signs on after school.

    Luke, will Sapient still be eligible since he is a mod?

    I think they will only ask one question per game and it will be generalized from any of the sources, i.e. OT, PT, EU, and such. Here was question one that they asked for the first round:

    Question #1

    Who sat next to Luke Skywalker in briefing scene before the Death Star battle in Star Wars?

    In that same scene, what is the technical inaccuracy in the computerized plans retrieved from R2-D2?


    So I'm assuming it will just be the one question and all teams will get a chance to answer it within the 24 hour time period.

    The game seems to be played on the JC community board hereand the answer is supposed to be PM'd to the MOD of the question being asked (I'm assuming it will be Rox) by the captains.

    Not sure if Sapient would be ineligible because of his modnessness, but I'll check with him...

    Rox says there are only 9 teams since the winner automatically gets a slot and there are just 10 slots total, so you guys better be ready to sign up tomorrow. If we can get two slots for CCFF, we'd have a better chance of winning. Will they let us have 2 slots?
