    Okay, folks, the game starts now. If I don't have you or your team listed in the other thread, don't worry. Just play the game and we'll sort it out afterward.

    Just a reminder, only submit your answers when you're COMPLETELY done. I'm only accepting one answer sheet per team so if you send me a PM with only two answers, that's your score. Another reminder, the game ends at 11:59 PM (board time) Sunday July 13th.

    For now just a word of thanks for my evil (but lovely) henchwomen who helped come up with these questions. For now they shall remain anonymous so that you players won't know who to pester for game help. ;)

    Now for the trivia:

    It's been brought to my attention that one or two of the questions may be placed in the wrong forum grouping.

    I'll be looking into this tonight, but for now if you can't find a particular answer in the forum indicated, you might wish to quit banging your head and try another.

    Also, some of these stories are possibly in two separate forums due to the move. [face_mischief] [face_devil]

    [face_laugh] Where in the galaxy did you did all these questions?!?!?!

    I just have to comment here.

    24. In A Rising Tempest what planet was Wedge on when he was shot by an Imperial probe droid and why was he there?

    I wrote this story, with a friend of mine, but we never finished. It must be miles deep in cyberspace, lol. Even I don't remember the answer to this question!!

    That's what happens with first attempts sometimes- *shrug* it wasn't even poorly written..

    Anyways- Thanks for the laugh

    Well, the username data and questions about individual members didn't fit in as well with the five forum layout of this game so I left those questions out this time.


    Question selection was pretty randomly done. I can't speak for my lovely henchwomen, but I'd just randomly click on a forum page and then randomly click on a story, then a page number and search for a good trivia question somewhere in that particular story on that particular page.

    Well, having sent in my answers several hours ago, I'm just going to say that in this search, I found some really, really great fics, which I will post on tomorrow (if I can find them again ;)). I didn't post on them as I was reading because I didn't want to give other teams any help. [face_devil] 8-} So whether or not I win (and I probably won't ;)), I'm glad I participated. :)

    Now, let's just hope my PM got through safely . . . I have a sinking feeling that it didn't, considering that Herman Snerd hasn't sent that confirmation I asked for, but I'll just cross my fingers and hope.

    Okay, here are the answers. As you can see one of the questions from the Resource Forum section was removed since upon a second look it was unfairly confusing. Plus nobody really got it right anyway. ;)


    Look over the answers and see if you can prove me wrong. It can be done. During the scoring I had to alter two answers because it turned out there wasn't just one correct answer. There will be a 48-hour period where answers can be contested and after that the final winner will be declared.

    Complicating matters slightly is that currently there is a three way tie for the point lead. I'll be giving each of those three answer sets another look later today. As the rules stated, in case of a tie, the answers submitted to me first among those tied will be declared the winner assuming there is still a tie after I double check the answers and my addition skills (it was only a two way tie until I used a calculator to re-check one of the scores). ;)
