    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 FanForce Star Wars Trivial Pursuit!!


    Official Rules (that can change at any time)

    Team Construction and Rules:
    - Teams will be made of 3 users.
    - Each team must submit its team name, and the city they are from.
    - Each team must submit its team captain and roster.
    - Multiple teams from a chapter can compete.
    - Each Team must represent a FanForce Chapter. Although you do not have to represent an Official chapter of FanForce you do need to represent a city forum. (An exception will be made for those that want to play but cannot get enough people to play from your chapter.)

    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 for the week.
    - Teams may discuss answers via PM only. No discussion of the weekly questions is permitted on the boards. Public discussion of questions (other than to tell me how easy they were) will result in your team?s disqualification from the game.
    - The questions will be posted on every Saturday at 4 pm board time.
    - Answers must be submitted to Rox by PM no later than 4 pm board time the Monday following the game.
    - The team with the highest score after 3 rounds wins.
    - In the event of a tie the host will ask a tie breaker question and the first team to answer correctly wins.

    Bonus Rules:
    - The first team to submit their answers receives 1 bonus point for being first in.
    - The winner of each round will receive a lifeline for the following week's questions. We will call it the "Golden Gonk". If you don't know the answer to a question you may use the "Golden Gonk" and receive full credit for that question.

    Game Progression as follows:
    - Saturday Night 4PM 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 4PM Board Time: Deadline for Submission of answers.
    - No awards will be handed out until the end of the contest.

    Prize for the Winners:
    - VIP Colors. Winners will receive the VIP treatment and get to change their name colors for one week.
    - A Custom Title so you don't have to touch your signature.

    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.

    This game begins November 5th at 4pm Board Time.

    If Boogie and Pulsar accept my humble self as their proverbial third wheel, I'll help nurture their blossoming romance and perhaps answer the odd smattering of trivia on the side. ;)

    The Southern NM FF would like to participate as well! Four or five people have expressed interest, so I'll put the first three who signed up to do it on the list, and then the next game, the next ones can play. So, here we are:

    The Outer Rim (Southern NM- we don't have a particular city)

    We are off to a great start! 6 teams so far.

    PLEASE READ, VERY IMPORTANT RULE CHANGE

    At the request of the European teams I am going to make 1 minor change to the rules. I will be posting the questions on Saturdays instead of on Sundays. So that means the game will start on October 29th at 7pm.

    If a moderator could please make that change that would be hot?
