This is a Trivia Game played by one of your affiliates (Tenchiboard).

I have permission to post this (by Samantha Koortyn) so this is not spam.

http://my.funtrivia.com/private/main.cfm?tid=47830

The game is a general knowledge trivia challenge.  It is played once per day (and runs the length of a month), and involves a single, 10 question, multiple choice quiz.  It usually takes just over a minute (less is you're really fast) to play.  Scoring is out of 1000 points (100 points per question).  If you miss an answer, then it's 100 points off.  Totals are calculated by subtracting the number wrong and the time (in seconds) from 1000.  So if you score 10 (zero wrong) and take 60 seconds to play, your score is 940.

Give it a try.  Maybe you can give "Epics" bragging rights.  Although, we Tenchiboard people like to believe nobody's going to defeat us.  Mehehehe.

I'm in 6th place… I took too long. Guess I should read the directions to know that every second takes points off your score haha.

Re: A Little "Challenge" To Members of Epics

FYI:  I play as "zl" there.

And I have won every month I've played in (save the last one…dammit; score totals are in the "Hall of Fame" section).

Will it be a Epic buttkicking, or will Epics kick our butts?  ;)

Note:

There are also silly things you can do too.  There is a "fun trivia bucks" section where you can "spend" cash you "earn" for correct answers.  I'm saving up for a Personal Aircraft carrier (see the Transportation) section.  

Remember, one game a day, and it lasts a month!

Don't worry about low scores.  It's just for fun, and you'll get better the more you play.

*ONE MORE NOTE*:  We DO NOT get the same quiz every day (meaning that each player does not see the same questions as everyone else everyday).  Quiz questions are gathered from a "pool" of questions.  Don't feel bad if someone gets 10 one day while you got a 5.  The "strength" of questions evens out over the course of a month.  You may have just gotten a difficult quiz that day, while someone got a pathetically easy one.

Edit:  I suggest "bookmarking" the link on your browsers.  Remember, it takes like a minute to play and you have a whole day to play it (games end at midnight, Eastern Time Zone).  May the best board (Tenchiboard) win.  Muahahahaha!

Do I have to play every day? Because I'll be gone the next three days. Can I still play?

Re: A Little "Challenge" To Members of Epics

I got 9 right but took 130 seconds because of a stupid scroll glitch on my computer...

So whatever this is, this thing that now I've become, you hate it so much, you keep on running from it, no matter the distance, no matter how far.

You can play or skip whatever days you want (you just won't get points for the days you miss).  But the game runs a month, so if you really want to win (overall) play as much as you can.  :)

But certainly you are not removed for missing days.  

^_^

Once registered, you can keep playing (in continuing months) too.  So don't worry about missing (although it can hurt if you want that overall "top score" in the Hall of Fame).

Note:  "Jedi mind tricks" will not avail you.  :P

Epics only put out 5 challengers?  Surely you can do better!

I'd join up if I had more time… *sigh*  I hate it when breaks end.

Well, you can always give it a try.

You do have 24 hours to play a 2-3 minute (or less) game.  :)

Nice sidebar addition (the scores)!!!

We still outnumber your board in players though (although your membership outnumbers us).  :P  Hopefully more players will give it a go.  :)
