    Just a quick note. If you still would like to play and haven't yet signed up, you still can. Just send me a private message to let me know and you'll be in the game.


    Fanfic Trivia 2005

    Format


    The trivia has been divided into four parts - the three story forums and some general questions, some of which can be found in the Resource Forum. For ease of scoring, every question - even multiple part questions - will be worth a single point. Out of the goodness of my tiny little heart I'm going to keep the questions divided by forum, so when you're stumped on a question (which will be often) you'll at least know what forum to look in.

    You can play alone or with a partner, but there will be no teams allowed with more than two people.



    Time


    The current plan is for the game to begin Friday November 25th and run until 11:59 PM (board time) Sunday December 4th. At any time within those nine days the teams can submit their answer sheet to me via PM. Only one set of answers per team will be allowed and I'm going to accept the first one only, so don't submit your answers unless you're certain you can't answer any more or you're out of time. Be sure to include your team name when submitting answers.



    Official Rules:


    1. The winning team shall be the team that answers the most questions correctly, obviously.

    2. In the event of a tie score, the winner will be determined to be whichever team submitted its entry first.

    3. Trivia answers will be sent directly to me via PM only. Only one answer sheet per team will be accepted. DO NOT SEND ANY ANSWERS TO ME UNTIL YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE GAME.

    4. Once a winner is declared, the answers will be displayed. There will be a 48 hour period where players can dispute an answer and thereby the outcome of the game. After that time expires, the prize is awarded and any subsequent complaints will be soundly ignored.

    5. To overturn the outcome of the game the contesting team must provide ironclad proof that the given answer is wrong. In the event that happens I will immediately pass the blame along to someone else and the results will be retabulated.

    6. Herman reserves the right to change the rules as he sees fit.


    Unofficial Rules:

    1. While the official teams are limited to 2 people, there's nothing to stop teams from trading answers back and forth behind the scenes as well as contacting non-players and hitting them up for answers.

    2. Given that trading answers aids the opposition as much as it helps you, it only really works if the opposition gives you the correct answer and you give them a load of crap.

    3. Lying, cheating, and backstabbing are encouraged.

    4. Trust no one.



    And now, the questions.

    A pox on all of you who do not put story links in your bios. [face_shame_on_you]

    Know the fic. Know the author. Know approximately where to find the answer in the story.

    Just. Can't. Find. The. Thread.

    Are you kidding me? The JC's inadequate search function is what makes this game so much fun.*

    It's not the darn search function that's the worst part of it all. The worst part is the "General Knowledge" (i.e. ANCIENT HISTORY) that we seem to need to know to complete the answers. :mad: I was up till 2AM working on this [face_hypnotized] because of TWO QUESTIONS that were driving me insane.

    * has half a mind to bash Herman's head with the beer equipment my Evil Twin has promised as her bribe * :p

    And anyone who wants to know my medical specialty? I'm a geriatric grumpologist. [face_not_talking] :p

    Sad thing is for a moment I actually had to think about the answer. It was so specific - LOL :oops:

    [face_laugh] Well, if you weren't so stubborn! I told you to go to bed and let me take the second shift, didn't I? :p

    She's right about that ancient history part, though, Herman. You practically have to have registered pre-99 to know that stuff. [face_not_talking]








    *shifty eyes* But the beer equipment offer still stands. Just watch out for LP. [face_shhh]
