    WHO WANTS TO WIN A MILLION COLORS?[ul]
    [li]The Traveling Version?[/li]
    [/ul]Been a while since I've walked these halls. The traveling Million Colors game makes its return, this time to offer entertainment to the denizens of the Fan Fiction boards. Will we have another champion triumphing at trivia, or will the questions prove too difficult for even these masters of minutiae? Let's find out.

    Game rules:

    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. Most questions will be in multiple choice format, with four choices, but some 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 The_Loyal_Imperial (they won't be pretty) 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 The_Loyal_Imperial 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 The_Loyal_Imperial 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.

    It is requested that PMs 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 may cause your question to be missed.

    4) Answers are not to be posted in the thread. Doing so will eliminate you from the game. However, players and users are encouraged to post in the thread to keep it active.

    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 if the first question has been posted.

    6) Signups for a new game will begin in the new forum after the colors for the winner of the previous game have expired.

    7) Generally speaking, a new question will be posted every two days. 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.

    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, where whichever player correctly responds to the question (which will be sent by PM) in the shortest amount of time after receiving it wins. The prize for the game is a title and colors for 72 hours. Winners cannot play two rounds in a row and must instead sit out a round.

    10) If at any time there is a question that no one playing can answer correctly, then the game will end without a winner.

    You can sign up with a sock (another account), or use one if your main account is banned.

    You know me... I almost never give up chances to blind Nat with solar powered colours. :p I'll probably be game-banned, but I do have socks. On the other hand, the 24 hour rest period could serve me well, I spend way too much time online. [face_laugh]

    Loyal, what happens if we don't get twelve players? Can we play with a smaller number, or will the travelling thread go sailing off somewhere else?

    Oh, why not. Might as well try this again and see if I do better this time. Maybe I can get past round 8 this time.

    It'll go elsewhere. Twelve questions, twelve players. We go through all twelve without a winner often enough as it is, without starting with fewer. :p
