[24th] SpongeBob Jeopardy! Sign-Ups

Recommended Posts


SpongeBob Jeopardy!

24th round[/align]

**By the way, I want to clarify that if you sign up, you DO NOT have to participate in the next one. In fact, you HAVE TO sign up for each round. This is so if you can't make it to one, you're not signed up for that round. It seems that people are mistaking about this, and I apologize for not being clear on that matter.

**Anyways, 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). 239236.gif

NOTE: If you had signed up in the previous topic, please sign up again in this topic. Even though you did technically sign up, this is to make sure that you are able to come (e.g. I don't want you to sign up in a previous topic, see the new topic, and go "Oh, I have work, so I can't go!"). Mostly a formality. The game will start on Saturday, March 10th 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). As always, you will get a PM with the link and a reminder 2 hours ahead of the game.

The prizes:

1. 4,000 doubloons

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

3. Jeopardy Champion Award (you keep it until the next round)

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 xat. 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.

*There are two exceptions:

1. Daily Barnacles and the Daily Duel questions give you 15 seconds.

2. Final Jeopardy gives you a minute.

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, Daily Barnacles, and Daily Duels 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 xat) 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. 630566.gif

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 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.

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, Daily Barnacle, Daily Duel, Special Weapon Question or Extra Dodge Question. If the host suspects you are searching for an answer online outside of those five exceptions, they will have the right to kick you or take away points.

Good luck, and be sure to sign-up!
