SHOWDOWNS BY CATEGORY

I was challenged to a Showdown yesterday and didn't have a chance. The category was Books and Authors, which is my Exemption on TQOTD. This is about the third time this has happened,"I AM NOT COMPLAINING". Support told me that showdowns were different from TQOTD and would be random picks. "Congratulations!!" Magicmarty. The reason I am bringing this up is that I remember reading that when 2.0 comes into existance that Showdowns might be done by category, if the player wanted to do so. Does anyone know anything about this, LMK. By the way, I do read books without pictures, but really don't care too much about authors.

I've checked out showdowns in 2.0, and as far as I can see, it's the same. I was also looking forward to selecting a category, which I thought had been mentioned previously, but I can't find that as an option.

In fact, now I can't even find where to stage a showdown in 2.0. I'm so confused!

I had to look it up myself, Linda! Click on MySploofus at the top right, down under that on the right side under Links, the very last one is Trivia Showdowns. Click it, and it will show you your old showdown results and a link to click to start a showdown.

Yup...there it is. Thanks. But since I see too many LOSTs listed, I'll wait until we are allowed to choose our category, if ever.

I'm actually too chicken to ever stage a showdown - I think I have about 150 showdown tokens for sale - and I frequently am challenged with showdown questions which are in my category exemption (music). I actually win them occasionally because since I know I don't know it I just pick a choice really quickly. Every once in a while I am right, and am certainly faster than anyone who actually read the question! Same thing happens with sports questions. But I will readily admit that I'm easy pickins cause my winning percentage is really low.

Alice...you have more than I do (123) since it took me a while to learn not to stage a showdown. You are a much quicker learner than I.

When a showdown happens, do you get to see the category first like with TQOTD or once you stage or accept a showdown, are you just presented immediately with a question? (Based on my reading of the rules, it seems to be the latter, but I just wanted to check.)

I don't have an exempt category at the moment. I figured I might as well try them all since I seem to be equally bad at all TQOTD.

I looked it up - I only have 136 showdown tokens - but they are still all for sale!

And no, you don't get to see the category of the showdown - the question just comes up and makes you feel stupid.

Sometimes dumber than you want to admit.
