    WHO WANTS TO WIN A MILLION COLORS?
    The Traveling Version?


    In this latest version of the game, we?ll be running the game each month through the different forums (new thread each time). All users are welcome to play! The game will consist of targeted questions for the forums in question. Here?s where we?ll be going:

    I Arena
    II Lit
    III SENATE
    IV EUC
    V Games
    VI C&G


    (Roman numerals in deference to Jello :p)

    The JCC will be the ?home base? for the game. As such, new game announcements will be made in the main thread in the JCC, as will updates about game status and the like. Announcements will be parroted in the appropriate forum thread as well.

    Sign up! Have a good time! And good luck!!

    Game rules:

    Note: There are some changes to the rules from previous games so please read them carefully.

    1) Unless there are special circumstances in a round (and if that is the case it will be specified), there will be 12 contestants and 12 questions asked. The first 10 questions will be in multiple choice format, with four choices. The last two questions will be short answer.

    2) Answering incorrectly or not answering results in a 24 hour game ban. During this time you will be unable to log in and post under whatever name you signed up for the game with, but you are allowed to use socks. For moderators who sign up with their moderator account, they will be required to change colors to those dictated by Souderwan (they won't be pretty :p) and must change their title to say "Million Colors LOSER!!!" for 24 hrs.* Half answers are not accepted (i.e. right letter and wrong answer or wrong letter right answer). If Souderwan somehow screws up on a question players are off the hook for that one. If you use a sock and win the game, please understand that it is your sock that will get the VIP-ship and colors.

    3) Answers are to be submitted to Souderwan via private messages. They will only be accepted from the username you used to put on the sign-up list. In other words, if you are playing more than one game at a time, sign up for one of them with a sock, because if you don't, you run the risk of not being able to send in an answer if the name is under a game ban for a different game.

    All PMs must be sent with the following format in the subject line: ?Million Colors. Question X answer? where X is the number of the question you?re answering. Failure to do this might cause your question to be missed and you won?t get a reprieve.

    4) Answers are not to be posted in the thread. Doing so will eliminate you from the game.

    5) The game will begin within 24 hours or so of a sign up list being completed. If you signed up, check back in the thread each day so you know if the game has begun and the first question has been posted.

    6) Signups for a new game will begin in the new forum (announced in the JCC homebase thread) soon (about a day to a week or so) after completion of the winner of the previous game is announced.

    7) Generally speaking, a new question will be posted every two days. Souderwan does have a life away from the JC, and as such he can't post questions at the same time every second day. However, there will always be 48 hours given for answering, with a reminder after 24 hours. If all answers are in before the 48 hours is up, a new question might go up early. Although not common, there will be some days when Souderwan can't put up a new question.

    8) If you receive a game ban and are banned for over 24 hours, feel free to submit an unban request and state that you were under a 24 hour game ban. That way a mod can unban you.

    9) The winner of the game is the contestant who remains after all 12 questions have been asked. If there is more than one person left, the winner will be decided by a lightning round. (first player to answer the bonus question correctly. The contesta

    I find the lack of sign-ups disturbing.


    Thanks for the support, Kyp!

    No, Rachel. You're not. If you win, however, you have to sit out the next game.

    Oh. I forgot. Quick rule change (doesn't affect most people) since it came up via PM. Most mods choose to sign up with socks, which saves them from a game ban. That said for those mods that choose otherwise, I don't really want to deprive people from the ability to do their jobs because of a game ban so...


    2) Answering incorrectly or not answering results in a 24 hour game ban. During this time you will be unable to log in and post under whatever name you signed up for the game with, but you are allowed to use socks. For moderators who sign up with their moderator account, they will be required to change colors to those dictated by Souderwan (they won't be pretty :p) and must change their title to say "Million Colors LOSER!!!" for 24 hrs.* Half answers are not accepted (i.e. right letter and wrong answer or wrong letter right answer). If Souderwan somehow screws up on a question players are off the hook for that one. If you use a sock and win the game, please understand that it is your sock that will get the VIP-ship and colors.


    *Revised rules.


    If a mod would be so kind as to edit that into the original post both here and in the JCC, I'd be very appreciative. Thanks. :)
