    ok, A GSA will be in here to declare a winner of the last round/or contest shortly. We will be closing this one and starting a new one. :)

    I have a few ideas on how to tweak the next one to make it more interesting but would everyone like to chime in here and let me know any changes you would like to see in the new one?

    Your input is much appreciated.
    :)

    And no worries chin up everyone we will be starting a new one shortly and it WILL be comppleted :)

    There will also be closure to this current one as well...

    maybe getting rid of bonus points for the team who gats their answers in first would be a good idea? i know i have moaned before about the time difference etc, but the questions were posted at midnight UK time, which must have been about 2 in the morning for the other european teams. there was no way my team would ever be in first. just my 2p, and i look forward to carrying on the game :)

    Thanks for those information, Strawbary. It is good to know what is planned. It gaves us some safety. :)


    I have fourth suggestions right now:

    First, I have to agree to Lord-Wiz. The bonus point for sending in the answers first isn't really that fair.

    Second, I would like to suggest to write down a timetable. Not only for the players but also for the Game Master (GM). This way everyone knows when the results will or at least should be posted. This was a little thing that bothers me, because we never knew when we get the results and what happens if the GM can't post them in time. The last game shows also that there should be a solution for the case that the GM can't post the results in time or give out the questions in time.
    For example you can say that the results should be posted within the next 48 hours and if they aren't posted after three days, we can be sure that the next game round won't be at the next weekend. The same if the GM can't post the question in time (+/- a certain amount of time), the questions won't be posted until next weekend.
    In my view this would fair, because the players don't have to wait all day/night for the questions and can be more sure about if the question will be posted or not.
    And I think this would be also a good idea even if there's a second GM - just in case. :)

    Third, if there will be some kind of bonus points, it would be good to know if you have to send them in with the answers or if it could be a second PM.

    Forth, if there will be a Golden Gonk again, it would be good to know if you have to use it for the next round or if you can keep it as long as you want.


    Maybe there are some more, but at the moment I can just think about these four suggestions.

    :)

    If I have any ideas I will let you know.
    At the moment I echo what Wiz said.
    The bonus for getting in first should be ditched.

    And Skiara has some good ideas too.
    I like the timetable idea.

    Okay, to bring this game to an end... ;)

    I know that I will now make myself quite some enemies, but tough luck for them. ;)

    Hereby I announce that the third round don't count through the lack of the GM answers.
    The fourth question of round two don't count either. Thereby the second rounds is only nine points plus bonus points worth.

    The redone result of round two:

    Trial Pursuit Teams

    FF:UK (keeping it clean) Northern Chapter. 7 + 5/9= 12
    Master-FatBurt
    Jedi_Master_Booth
    Black-Scout
    Reserve: Khabarakh23

    VicFF: 9 + 8/9= 17
    PulsarSkate
    Protege-of-Thrawn
    TheBoogieMan

    FF-UK:Midlands: "The Midland-orians" 8 + 8/9 + 2bp = 18
    Lord-Wiz - Captain
    Jairen
    veritasuk

    Team of the GSFF: 9 + 9/9 + 2bp = 20
    Skiara -Captain
    Oissan
    Rogan_Agar

    Southern NM: The Outer Rim 7 + 6/9 = 13
    NM_Mandalorian
    SWJaggy
    Jaina Byrd

    FF London UK: SITH CENTRAL 9 + 9/9 2bp = 20
    Jedi_Jimbo (Captain)
    AmberStarbright
    Darth_Konikus

    GSFF 3 - The search for GSFF 2 12 + 9/9 + 1bp = 22
    gaiatha (captain)
    Chimealheltei
    TwiLekJedi

    Team SAFF 9 + 8/9
    Darth_Meanders (captain)
    evil-incarnate
    DarkDisciple

    FanForce Denmark: Pink Squadron 8 + 9/9 + 2bp = 19
    Qui-Gina-Jinn (Captain)
    Lord_Coras
    Darth_Floyd

    SDSWS Team 8 + 0/9 + 2bp =10
    Mara_Jade_Fan (captain)
    Clone250
    JawaJames

    The Jedi Knights Of Columbus 8 + 7/9
    DarthClerical (Captain)
    Padawan92
    DarthFloyd

    Fan Force Sweden: The Swedish Chefs 9 + 9/9 + 2bp = 20
    Darth Lars (Captain)
    emilsson
    Jaide

    Corellian Crumpets 9/9 + 2bp = 11
    Sithlordrichie
    Raj_vader
    Lord-Tice

    This means every team who has nine points get a Gonk. We will see if this Gonk will be transfered to the new game.

    My judgement stand!

    So now I have the honour to announce the winner of this round:
    *Drums*
    GSFF 3 - The search for GSFF 2
    *Drums*

    Congratulations! :)

    Ask yourself this then Puls....

    How many answers did you have to Google search & how many did you actually know ? [face_thinking]

    May plan a SAFF vs VicFF competition weekend next year (we'll travel over) as soon as we find out who the new CR is & if you lot will be in for it..

    Congratulations Jule, Michi and Senny :D =D=

    Well done!!

    It's a shame the game didn't go as smoothly as hoped, but we've learnt a lot for the next game ;)
    I agree with Sabine's points about having timetables, clarification about the bonus tasks and I also think that Gonks should be valid for the next round only. And I echo getting rid of the bonus point for the first entry, mainly due to the time difference.
    ....and if you could get rid of all EU questions too :p Nah, only joking on that one, unless of cause everything thinks that's a good idea [face_whistling]
    On a more serious note though, if you have EU based questions, then how about questions based on collecting too as that would be fairer for those you have little interest in EU but do in collecting which is another major part of Star Wars.

    I also think that collecting questions would be fun.
