TOURNAMENTS WILL BE STARTING UP!

Those of you on 2.0 will be able to access the Tournaments starting June 27th. Hopefully there will be a new one starting every few days. Each tournament will be based on a theme, and there will be a listing of quizzes that have something to do with that theme. Participants will compete by completing a specific number of those quizzes. Bragging rights go to those who get the most questions right on the grouping.

We had a brief taste of tournaments a few months ago. Now Justin has turned the operations over to a few editors, and handed us the keys. Please be gentle with us as we learn the ropes!

We hope you enjoy!

First Tournament starts tomorrow - after that a new one will appear every few days. Beta players will have a week to participate in each tournament. Sure hope it runs smoothly.

It turns out that I had already done 9 of the 10 required quizzes. Funny! Well, I have a score anyone can beat!

I was wondering about that Alice. The current tournament has all quizzes I've never taken, but I was wondering what would happen if it was a movie quiz tournament or something where I'd already taken some of them. So whatever score you got the first time applies to the tournament then?

I didn't do very well on the current tournament, but it was a lot of fun.
I'm looking forward to entering more of them!

Shauna - I remember that happened to me when there were originally tournaments when 2.0 debuted. The second or third tournament was entitled "Science Olympiad" and you had to do 20 quizzes. Well, I take most of the science quizzes, so I had actually already completed the tournament before it started. Again, an easily beatable score, but it was nice to see that I was in first place for maybe 2 days till everyone else passed me by.

This food tournament (I take most of those too) I am waiting to take my last quiz - although it has given me my percent correct already, and it is far below what many of the finishers have.

I wonder what happens if you take more than the 10 quizzes?

Alice, I seem to remember on the Science Tournament it took the best scoring quizzes if you completed more than the required number.

Yes, you can take them all and only your best scores will count!

Wow, you folks are right on. I took the 10th quiz, which would have completed the requirements, and ended up in 7th place. Then I took an 11th, and went to 4th place. Finished them all, and kept climbing. Now I am hungry!

Current tournament has a really interesting quiz by Ken, 'Fruit & veg physics'! It really makes you think - my time may look as if I fell asleep but that's just because I lost my internet connection at Q 9 and had 4 modem resets before getting it back! Ken's quiz is highly recommended!

Just wondering.
Is there a limit to the number of tournaments you can be entered in at any given time?

Since the tournaments each are open for one week, and new ones begin on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, there will only be three active tournaments at any time. Other than that, I am not aware of any limit.

I'm learning to really like last. I figure if I'm going to live there I should decorate. Any colour suggestions?
