Should we post all 12 questions at once and you submit your answers within 48 hours? More time or less time?
Submit answers in the question post or e-mail?

Here’s the standings for Game 2 – CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL 3 OF YOU!!!

Only three members responded with all 12 + bonus questions answered.

1 member had 12 of 12 questions correct and 11 of 12 bonus questions correct = 15 correct
1 member had 12 of 12 questions correct and 10 of 12 bonus questions correct = 15 correct
1 member had 11 of 12 questions correct and 11 of 12 bonus questions correct = 14 correct

So technically, all 3 are winners. Now, to do a challenge for 3 don’t seem feasible, and really if you go by the numbers there is one that really did a bit better with 12 of 12 and 11 of 12. Do you want to call them the winner? Or and you can be a bit selfish, and just call it a tie and have a tie-breaker or, even better, you all get the Spotlight feature according to placement? Think about it and post your answers and suggestions here.

The point behind the date and time is the first 12 to answer correctly, so we need to know when you submit your answers and any answers submitted after the closing time of 10:00pm on Sundays will be disqualified. And any who may try to get by that rule, the yahoo mail dates and times will be used.:)

Most everyone loves trivia, I know I do. So here we will play Trivial Pursuit according to the basic guidelines of the board game.

Q&A
Who can play?
Anyone who is a member of the 12 Great Features group, of course!
What does the winner receive? Trivia Winner Spotlight of the Week on the group’s home page – determined via a challenge. (No nudity or SF). Anyone that would like to contribute new/other prizes, please BM me.
How is the winner determined? The first 12 members to answer correctly two questions in each category – 12 questions (12 Great Features). A challenge will then be launched for ONLY those 12 to determine the overall winner for the Spotlight feature. (This may change with your input and suggestions. Still working out the kinks!)
What are the Categories? Geography, Entertainment, History, Art & Literature, Science & Nature, Sports & Leisure, Wild (could be any subject), People & Places, plus some new sub-categories.
How much time will I have? You will have one week to answer all the questions. Two questions from random categories will be posted daily for six days at various times (due to the different time zones). Game will be posted, 2 per day, Monday through Saturday, and end on the following Sunday at 10:00pm EDT (my time).

The final results are in and the winner is………..

First the final results based on the number of questions each player has answered so far. Some may not have answers all questions.

1 member has 11 of 12 correct
1 member has 10 of 12 correct
2 members have 9 of 12 correct
1 member has 8 of 12 correct
2 members have 3 of 12 correct
4 members have 2 of 12 correct
1 member has 1 of 12 correct

We only had 12 members that played and they didn’t answer all 12 questions. So out of the 4 members who did answer all 12, there was only 1 that had the most correct. To be most fair, since this is the first game and participation was lacking, we will let be them be the Trivia Challenge Spotlight of the Week.

Is this OK with all of you? I won’t announce the winner yet until I hear from you. So please let us know.

Oh, I suppose you want to know the correct answers!!! Here they are in order.

1. Hiroshima
2. Double Doody
3. The Suez Canal
4. A hot Saharan wind
5. F. Scott Fitzgerald
6. Fishing
7. Saliva
8. Fannie Farmer
9. Old Bailey
10. Lech Walesa
11. The Academy Awards
12. Volkswagen Beetle
