The ASOIAF General Knowledge Quiz ( Sunday, 10.00 EST, Part II)



Welcome, one and all, to the first MyMedia ASOIAF General Knowledge quiz! Feel like proving to your friends you know more? Or are you just here for friendly competition? Do you think you can seize the Iron Throne of knowledge? If so you have come to the right place.

HOW IT WORKS:
More:

-There will be 50 questions from the book Game of Thrones, asking you for little tidbits of information. If you answer it right you get a point. If you answer it wrong you get nothing.

-The questions will be split into two nights with a time that works for the majority of people. I'll try not to let each night pass over one hour and fifteen minutes. The date will never clash with survivor challenges.

-The time limit for each question will be three minutes. I realize there can be copy-cats which makes the game less fair which is why the first correct person gets 3 points, the second gets 2, the third+ gets 1.

-Once the three minutes is up another question gets asked and the previous question can no longer be answered.

-You may only answer once. Your first answer is the only answer that counts. Spelling is also a must.

-At the end of each night there will be a single bonus question. This can arrange from anything at my discretion, from who said these quotes, what chapter did a character make their first appearance in, to name what each character was wearing in chapter whatever. The first person to get it 100% right will get bonus points. Bonus points will range from 5-15 depending on difficulty. There is no time limit on these questions.

-There will also be bonus points on performance during the quiz. This means even the person who gets the most questions wrong still has a chance at getting a couple of pity points. (See below)

-All questions will be decided by me, your host, and contesting the answers is absolutely permitted. If by some miracle you are right and I am wrong then you will get plus 2 points. If you are wrong, however, then you will be deducted 5 points. Why? Because I'm an arse with pride, that's why. (This will be called the Kelly Rule.)

-At the end of the night I'll correct/add the scores and update a scoreboard.

-You can use whatever means necessary to get the correct answers. Wiki it, look it up in the books, or even guess.

-Editing posts is not permitted.




EXAMPLE OF QUESTIONS:
More:

QUESTION #1:In the first POV we are introduced to Will, who are his other two companions?

Bekka is wrong. Spelling counts. She answered first, however, but doesn't get the +3 points.

Pan is right. She answered second but because she is the first correct she gets +3 points.

BigJsCon is second, so he gets +2 points.

Bekka posts again, but because she already had a try she gets nothing.

QUESTION #2: What is the name of Bran's father? (Because another question has been asked, Bill is the last to post.)

Most correct answers: +5
Most incorrect answers: +3
Every question answered correct: + 10
Answered/Attempted every question: +5

Re: The ASOIAF General Knowledge Quiz (Sign ups and date preference)

Pity points! I'm in!!

This should be good. Spelling, though, not so good. I just skimmed the Dany and Ironborn chapters, so all the names, places, and plot points will be a little tough.

Pandora, BigJsCon ... omg

Well, it's only GoT for now, so everyone should be fine considering we know everything about those characters. *Nods.*

Re: The ASOIAF General Knowledge Quiz (Sign ups and date preference)

if you don't have enough people otherwise.

my answers would likely resemble those of celebrity jeopardy.

"I'll take Kings Layers for 200."

and spelling? forget it. im not good at french anglo-saxon eurasian.

if I get pity points on my birthday (june 7) that would sweeten the pot.

or if I could buy the answers. my financiers in Braavos would comply.

So you're available June 7th?

I may have to go fullscale Vonnegut and start sending out begging PMs.

Re: The ASOIAF General Knowledge Quiz (Sign ups and date preference)

Fine. Im available. I'll wear my Patchface hat in honor of my high level of comprehension.

I know! I know!----oh wait, that's Cloud Atlas.

Oh, and there better be

And would this be Irish time or North American time? Considering that most of the would-be participants are far from the Broken Arm and the Narrow Sea.

Oh, and here's more coinage for the answers...

North American time. I basically live off it anyways. And yes, there will be a birthday present. (0.5 of a point)
