    OK guys

    I set up this tournament. I picked special settings so that we have all basketball questions with special emphasis on the Pistons and Shock.

    However, being computer challenged, I am not sure I set it up right for basketball, so those basketball questions should start tomorrow. If not, I'll have Slippy help me out. Todays questions are general questions. I think we all will get different questions for the most part .


    Hint: the quiz is timed so you get more points the faster you go.

    You play every day, but can only play once a day. It keeps track of your scores and has a hall of fame too I think.

    I've played these types of things before but never hosted one. Please be patient. You can join the tourney any time, but remember to play every day as it keeps track of your cumulative as well as daily scores. You get more points for each person that plays that is ahead of you.

    It can be a lot of fun. But again, I gotta work out some bugs being new to this so the first couple days may be like a trial.

    Here is the link. Again, basketball questions hopefully here tomorrow. I didn't want to change it today because I already played and it would throw it off.

    Roscoe, hope you like it. If not feel free to kill the thread. No worries. :)

    Re: ***New*** Darth's Fun Trivia game link

    Yea! Good job!

    OK, so tomorrow you can click on standings and all that. Also, it looks like I've got it set right for Pistons questions starting tomorrow. I think it kicks over at midnight or something.

    I may change later in the week to general NBA questions or something if I see we are getting repeats or just to keep it mixed up.

    In my first post, I meant to say you get more points the more people play. So Coyne Jeremy got 12 points as the leader, but his points will go up if more people play and fall below him.

    The object of the game is

    1. Don't let Slippy win.
    2. Have fun.

    I think you get cyber "awards" for the first three places at the end of the month and go into the hall of fame or something.

    Keep on playing.:)

    It might be cool to make Sunday a "random day" to mix things up a bit. Kind of like today's questions.

    Ok, I made some other mixes too. Easy or medium difficulty. Some literature and some general knowledge. It lists whats coming up.

    Re: ***New*** Darth's Fun Trivia game link

    OK, new questions are out. They are a basketball mix although I had it set for exclusively Pistons questions today. Not sure what happened. If this catches on, we'll work it all out.

    Anyhow, I only got 3 of 10 right. :nerd2:


    The top 10 players from yesterday (Sunday)are listed, but there are places to check cumulative scores or see players outside the top 10.

    Didn't realize there was timer on it. ..Got distracted by something on the tube before I finished it...

    I guessed on the Top of the World and Virginia question and got the former right and the latter wrong.

    Oh Brother. A dismal first performance for me. That's okay. I'm not good at games, but I love them. Hey I got the Cornbread one somewhere out of the basketball immersion of the last three years! Is it just straight scoring? Any partial credit for not guessing and leaving the question alone? What about the relation of time to correct answere. Is it worth it to try to google real quick and get the answer? LOL.

    Oh My God, I'm strategizing to optimize my chances at a win. By God Darth you've been a bad influence over me in the past year. No question about it. LMAO.

    Nice game Darth. I kinda answered the ones that I automatically knew.

    The NCAA question threw me for a loop. Keep them coming DT, I like it.

    Re: ***New*** Darth's Fun Trivia game link


    There are a total of 1000 points on ten questions. Each question is worth 100 points each. Every second you take subtracts 1 point.

    Example: It takes 18 seconds for you to answer question one correctly...you get a score of 86 on that question.

    so if you get 8 right total on the quiz that day, it's 8 x 100 =800. But it took you 90 seconds to answer them all. so 800-90 = a score of of 710.

    In other words, you gotta balance accuracy with speed.

    Hope that helps.

    It's usually too time consuming to search for answers (and not nearly as fun).
