    Well I've asked a few times now in the Celebration forum and I'm not getting any more responses.

    So myself and @star_wars_is_good is good are in.

    I think if you made this more visible you would get a lot more interest. I just happened to see it myself, otherwise I wouldn't have known about it. I don't know if there is a way to crosspost a thread to other forums, or just somehow make it more visible elsewhere.

    The game will begin this Thursday! I’d still like to get two more people signed up so we can have even teams. So please if you’re reading this and you haven’t signed up yet do so now! Before I set a specific time for the game to start let me ask is there anyone playing who is outside the US? I want to make sure I can set a time that works for everyone.

    I’m waiting one more day to see if one more person signs up. Tomorrow I will be sorting everyone into teams. This will be totally at random.

    And with that I am now closing sign ups since we now have enough for even teams. Give me one moment and I will announce the teams and a bit of a change to the game (not a major one!)

    This is the official team selection! Yay! I am literally drawing your names out of a Clone Trooper helmet that was a part of my son’s Halloween costume (okay it was my Halloween costume... [face_blush])

    And the first team is...

    drumroll please...

    zackm
    PymParticles
    MotivateR5D4

    Once you have your team, set up your team PM as quickly as possible! This will be where you discuss your answers before sending them to me. If you wish you can also give your team a name!

    Good news guys: I think we're going to win. Bad news (well not for me): if we lose, you two are getting banned.

    We have our five teams that will compete tomorrow for ST Trivia glory! So now we get to that pesky little change to the game: coming up with 75 questions is ******* hard! I have sixty so instead of five rounds of 15 questions each we’re doing 4. That also means we have 4 categories instead of 5 and I will now reveal these categories so you all can get prepared for tomorrow:

    In-Universe: All questions will pertain to what happens in the films themselves.
    Beyond the ST: These questions will deal with things about the ST characters in stories outside of the films.
    Behind the Scenes: All questions here will be about things behind the camera.
    Ancillary Material: I hope you have your Visual Dictionaries handy because you’ll need them for these questions.

    So I have set a tentative time to start the game at 3PM CST tomorrow. I hope this works for everyone. If not please let me know and I’ll see what I can do. Remember though the team that sends me a correct answer first gets the points for the question so we all really need to be on at the same time for this to work.

    Is this whole thing being played out in one-shot? I won't be around for alittle bit tomorrow night (probably 6:30-9:30EST) and I know another on my team is in Europe.

    Yep, it's me. [:D]

    Looking forward to it. I played during the 20th Anniversary Family Feud and it was a lot of fun.

    I was originally going for one day but the more I think about it the more I think it makes more sense to spread it out over what would have been Celebration weekend. So maybe one round a day starting tomorrow and ending on Sunday works better?

    Can we do it in the evening hours if we go that route for tomorrow and Friday? We probably can get more in on Friday. Because of people have work. I guess depends on the time limit to get answers in.
