[221st] SpongeBob Jeopardy! Sign-Ups [1st Halloween Game]

Recommended Posts


SpongeBob Jeopardy!

221st round!

Want to play in this popular SBC game? To sign up, post in this topic "Squidward loves Patrick more than SpongeBob!" or some other SpongeBob quote (or even a simple "SIGN ME UP!" would suffice).

The game will start on Saturday, October 22nd at 7:00 PM EST. If you do not live in the Eastern time zone, please adjust the time accordingly (Pacific time zone is 4 PM, for example). On the day of the game, I will PM all contestants a reminder PM (this will contain the time, link to where we will play, and some info on what to expect for the game) a few hours ahead of the game.

The prizes:

1. 2,000 doubloons

2. Jeopardy Champion Badge (you keep it until the next round)

3. A point for your team on the scoreboard.

Rules to the game:


Rule #1: 10-second limit*


In the real Jeopardy game, Alex would read the question and then after the question is read, the contestants could answer. Well, to make up for that, we have the 10-second limit! Here's how it works: The host will say the answer in the chat. Right afterwards, the 10 seconds starts. You may type your answer into the box within those 10 seconds, but don't send. Then, after 10 seconds, he will say "QUESTIONS IN!" Once he says that, you can say your question (e.g. What is Gary the Snail?). If you say it too early, however, the answer will not be counted. The first person to get it right gets the points.



-Daily Barnacles give you 20 seconds.


Rule #2: You will never lose points, even if you answer incorrectly. Two reasons why: 1) It's frustrating; 2) The host is already overworked as it is... do you really want to trouble them with negative points?


Exception: Final Jeopardy and Daily Barnacles are the only time you will actually lose points.


Rule #3: The 1 minute rule!


Not to confuse this rule with the 10-second rule, but if nobody gets the right question within a minute, then the question is "beeped" and we move on. This is to avoid the answer going on for hours and hours.


Rule #4: The host is wrong!


If the answer is wrong and I said that it was right, then you can PM me (in the chat) the right answer (DO NOT SAY IT IN THE MAIN CHAT) and also provide a source for the correction and I'll get it fixed immediately.


Rule #5: Double Guessing


After you say your first guess, you cannot guess again. Any guesses after your first guess will not count, so don't even try.


Rule #6: Winning*


If you win a game, then you can not play in the next game. You can still watch and moderate the game though (and even help the host make some categories/questions for the game if you wish), but this is to only give players a fair chance. Of course, you can play in the game after it.



-Team Games, however, can allow anyone to play, regardless if they won the previous game or not. If you win a team game and the next one is single player, you can still play.

-If you win the game preceding a season finale, you can still play in it.

-If you win a game before a break, you can play in the next game after the break is over.


Rule #7: Banning


The host has all right to kick/ban players out of the game, including players that are telling the host to kick people out for any reason.


Rule #8: Internet


You are not allowed to search for an answer online, unless it is for a Final Jeopardy or Daily Barnacle (if the Barnacle says you can use the internet anyways). If the host suspects you are searching for an answer online outside of those three exceptions they will have the right to kick you or take away points.


Rule #9: Abbreviations*


Don't get lazy and abbreviate your answers...we're not barbarians, people.



-There may be a few SBC users (such as: hilaryfan80, CNF, OMJ, Nuggets, etc.) whose names might be too long to type out, and could hinder your chances of winning. It is fine if you abbreviate those. However, there is no excuse to abbreviate "What is SpongeBob?" as "What is SB?" Who IS SB? The host doesn't know!

Good luck, and be sure to sign-up!
