STAR WARS JEOPARDY RULES

Post by Ian_C on Fri Sep 02, 2016 10:26 am


Here it is. The official rules for the upcoming Jeopardy game. Any questions, please post them in here, and I will answer as quickly as possible.

1. Anyone can enter at any point in the game. The game will be held live in the chat room commencing 2:00 pm, EST (please pay attention to time zone differences). It will be best if people can show up a few minutes early.

*NOTE* There are two ways to enter the chat room. DO NOT use the red button at the top right of the forum. That will open a popup window for chat, and you will not be able to flip back and forth to the forum for the game board. Instead, keep a window with the game board open, and open a new tab next to it by clicking the "LIVE CHAT" button located at the top of the page, in between the "GALLERY" and "FAQ" buttons. This will allow you to easily flip between the game in chat with the updated game board in the forum.

2. There will be five topics in Round 1. Each topic will have three questions, each one progressively harder. The first will be easy, and the third may require a search, although I won't make them too obscure. Points will be assigned to the three levels of difficulty (100, 200, & 300). The topics will be displayed in a 'Jeopardy' inspired game board posted in this same section of the forum. I will provide a link in the chat room prior to the game starting so everyone knows where t look. The game board will be updated in real time, so members will easily be able to see topics/values remaining.

3. I will start the game with topic #1 question #1, by typing the question in the chat room. The first person to answer correctly will get to choose the next topic and point total. This will continue until all three questions for each topic have been revealed.

4. After each question has been asked, the first person to answer correctly will receive the corresponding points, and I will keep a record of totals. If an incorrect answer is given, that number of points will be deducted, to prevent a guessing game. (note: I will accept misspellings, but not abbreviations. ex. I will take mileniam falcon, but not mil. falcon - this is to make it as fair as possible to slower typers)

5. After Round 1 has finished, Round 2 will begin with slightly tougher topics, and the point totals will be doubled.

6. There will be one Daily Double in Round 1, and two in Round 2. The person who uncovers it will have up to one minute to answer correctly after deciding how much of their point total they would like to wager on the question. A correct answer will add that much to their total, while an incorrect one will deduct that much.

7. After Round 2 is finished, all participants with a positive score will be prompted to send me a PM with how much of their total they wish to wager on a Final Jeopardy question. If anyone has a negative score, they can also try to answer Final Jeopardy via PM, although they are technically eliminated from the game.

*(Note - A regular PM is unnecessary. On the top left corner of the chat room will be a list of those in the chat room. A right click on my name will give the option to send me a direct Instant Message - this will be easier than regular PM's).

8. Once all wagers are in, I will reveal the Final Jeopardy question. I will give everyone one minute to send me a PM with their answer, after which I will reveal all answers and totals wagered, and calculate a final score. Highest point total wins.

9. Prizes will be awarded as follows. There will be 4-5 prizes (announced in a day or two). The winner of the game gets to select the prize they like, and we will ship that prize to him/her. Second place will get to select a prize from those remaining, and we will continue in this manner until all prizes are awarded. Yes, this means we will have multiple winners, so don't be discouraged if 1-2 players run away with the scores. Wink


There will also be a 5 minute break about halfway through each round, and a 10 minute break between rounds and before Final Jeopardy.

Again, if there are any questions, don't hesitate to ask them here.
