PLAYERS:

There may be more preseason bonus questions added before the start of the game. It is doubtful, but I hold the right to add a question if it seems right.

The Ron Jeremy of all bonus questions

This is a four parter:

1) Will Avengers make at least 600 million domestically? NO
2) Will Avengers make more than a billion internationally? YES
3) Will Avengers do at least 25 million for previews YES
4)) Will Avengers make at least 1.8 billion WW? Abstain

Scoring: All questions you answer correctly are worth 7000 points. You can go for as many as you like.

Here is the catch: Every answer you call incorrectly you lose 10,000 points.

There are no points for abstaining, with one caveat down below. ***

Even more bonus and more treachery:

If you go 4/4 you get a 28,000 point bonus. So this means you will get a total of 56,000 points for this question (7000X4 plus 28,000 point bonus)

However, if you go for all 4 you must get all four correct. If you get even one incorrect, you will lose 20,000 points. So what this means is, if you go for all four and even if you get 3/4 correct, not only will you NOT get the 11,000 but you will lose a full 15,000 points.

This question is worth a lot of points for those ballsy enough to go for all 4, but it will kick your ass if you get too cocky. PLEASE READ THIS ONE CAREFULLY AND UNDERSTAND IT FULLY. IF YOU DO NOT, THEN ASK ME. ONCE THE GAME STARTS, CLAIMING YOU DIDN'T READ IT RIGHT WILL NOT BE AN EXCUSE.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS IF YOU GO FOR ALL FOUR QUESTIONS, YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST GET ALL FOUR RIGHT IN ORDER TO GET POINTS.

Remember, you don't have to answer any of them. Or you can answer as little as you want. It's totally up to you.

You can choose to go for as many or as little as you want.

***CAVEAT***

If you choose to abstain from all 4, you will get 5000 for doing so.
You must tell me if you are abstaining.


NEW QUESTION:

This is a four part question. Again, you have choices.
Answer any part of the question. Each answer you get correct you will receive 7000 points. Each answer you get wrong, you will lose 7000 points. If you go for all four parts of the question, you must get all four parts correct. If you get even one wrong after going for it all, you will lose 7,000 points. You can go for all of it, none of it and some of it. Choice is yours.

17)  Note*** Jurassic World does not qualify for this question

A) Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com gross more than 100 million dollars this summer? NO
Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com open to more than 35 mill? NO
C) Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com have a second weekend drop of less than 47%? Abstain
D) Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com have an opening day of more than 13 mill? YES

Get any question right: 7000
Get any question wrong: -7000
Abstain from all four questions: 5000
Go for all four, and get all four correct not only will you get the 28,000, you get a bonus of 28,000. But you must go for all four to qualify for the bonus

 

Double Secret Probation Bonus Question

 

Very simple, but very dangerous.

 

I'll give you a number, you tell me if Avengers will gross more or less than that number in said markets.

 

1) Russia:  42M - MORE

2) Germany:  31.5M MORE

3) Portugal:  3M MORE

4) China:  200M MORE

 

If you go for this question, you must get all 4 correct.  This is not a partial question.  If you get at least 3 of the 4 correct, you will get 50,000.  If you choose to abstain from this question, you will lose 15,000 points.  If you go for the question and you do not get at least 3 or the 4 correct, you will lose 30,000 points.  Choose Wisely.

 

The "Hey maybe you haven't been keeping up on current events but we just got our asses kicked pal" question of debauchery.

 

Will Jurassic World and F7 combine to make more than Avengers in these markets?

 

1) Japan - NO

2) United Kingdom - YES

3) Columbia - NO

4) Mexico - YES

 

Each answer will be yes or no.  Nothing more.  You must get at least three correct.  Get three correct, get a bonus of 50,000, don't get three correct, lose 25,000, abstain, lose 10,000.

 

As promised, here are your additional 20 25 questions for you.  I love this part of the game.    :)

 

For every question you get right, you receive 7000 points. For every question you get wrong, you lose 2000 points.  These are mandatory questions, there is no abstaining.  Any player who is in this game, who does not answer these questions, loses 50,000 points.  Do not forget to do these.  Remember grosses count from May 1st until September 7th.

 

All grosses come from boxofficemojo.com, all genres are determined by boxofficemojo.com.....so if I ask you a question about a romance, if that film is listed as a sci-fi/romance, then it will qualify as a romance.

PLAYERS:

There may be more preseason bonus questions added before the start of the game. It is doubtful, but I hold the right to add a question if it seems right.

The Ron Jeremy of all bonus questions

This is a four parter:

1) Will Avengers make at least 600 million domestically? NO
2) Will Avengers make more than a billion internationally? YES
3) Will Avengers do at least 25 million for previews? NO
4) Will Avengers make at least 1.8 billion WW? Abstain

There are no points for abstaining, with one caveat down below. ***

Even more bonus and more treachery:

If you go 4/4 you get a 28,000 point bonus. So this means you will get a total of 56,000 points for this question (7000X4 plus 28,000 point bonus)

However, if you go for all 4 you must get all four correct. If you get even one incorrect, you will lose 20,000 points. So what this means is, if you go for all four and even if you get 3/4 correct, not only will you NOT get the 11,000 but you will lose a full 15,000 points.

This question is worth a lot of points for those ballsy enough to go for all 4, but it will kick your ass if you get too cocky. PLEASE READ THIS ONE CAREFULLY AND UNDERSTAND IT FULLY. IF YOU DO NOT, THEN ASK ME. ONCE THE GAME STARTS, CLAIMING YOU DIDN'T READ IT RIGHT WILL NOT BE AN EXCUSE.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS IF YOU GO FOR ALL FOUR QUESTIONS, YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST GET ALL FOUR RIGHT IN ORDER TO GET POINTS.

Remember, you don't have to answer any of them. Or you can answer as little as you want. It's totally up to you.

You can choose to go for as many or as little as you want.

***CAVEAT***

If you choose to abstain from all 4, you will get 5000 for doing so.
You must tell me if you are abstaining.


NEW QUESTION:

This is a four part question. Again, you have choices.
Answer any part of the question. Each answer you get correct you will receive 7000 points. Each answer you get wrong, you will lose 7000 points. If you go for all four parts of the question, you must get all four parts correct. If you get even one wrong after going for it all, you will lose 7,000 points. You can go for all of it, none of it and some of it. Choice is yours.

17)  Note*** Jurassic World does not qualify for this question

A) Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com gross more than 100 million dollars this summer? ABSTAIN
Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com open to more than 35 mill? YES
C) Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com have a second weekend drop of less than 47%?  ABSTAIN
D) Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com have an opening day of more than 13 mill? YES

Get any question right: 7000
Get any question wrong: -7000
Abstain from all four questions: 5000
Go for all four, and get all four correct not only will you get the 28,000, you get a bonus of 28,000. But you must go for all four to qualify for the bonus

 

Double Secret Probation Bonus Question

 

Very simple, but very dangerous.

 

I'll give you a number, you tell me if Avengers will gross more or less than that number in said markets.

 

1) Russia:  42M MORE

2) Germany:  31.5M MORE

3) Portugal:  3M LESS

4) China:  200M MORE

 

If you go for this question, you must get all 4 correct.  This is not a partial question.  If you get at least 3 of the 4 correct, you will get 50,000.  If you choose to abstain from this question, you will lose 15,000 points.  If you go for the question and you do not get at least 3 or the 4 correct, you will lose 30,000 points.  Choose Wisely.

 

The "Hey maybe you haven't been keeping up on current events but we just got our asses kicked pal" question of debauchery.

 

Will Jurassic World and F7 combine to make more than Avengers in these markets?

 

1) Japan NO

2) United Kingdom YES

3) Columbia YES

4) Mexico YES

 

Each answer will be yes or no.  Nothing more.  You must get at least three correct.  Get three correct, get a bonus of 50,000, don't get three correct, lose 25,000, abstain, lose 10,000.

 

As promised, here are your additional 20 25 questions for you.  I love this part of the game.  

 

For every question you get right, you receive 7000 points. For every question you get wrong, you lose 2000 points. These are mandatory questions, there is no abstaining.  Any player who is in this game, who does not answer these questions, loses 50,000 points.  Do not forget to do these.  Remember grosses count from May 1st until September 7th.

 

All grosses come from boxofficemojo.com, all genres are determined by boxofficemojo.com.....so if I ask you a question about a romance, if that film is listed as a sci-fi/romance, then it will qualify as a romance.

 

1) How many films will gross at least 100 million dollars this summer? You have a cushion of 1 film.  So if you are off by 1, you still get full points. 15

2) How many films will make a billion dollars this summer?  No cushion 1

3) What will the domestic total gross be for the top 3 horror films of the summer.  II don't want to see anything but a number in your answer.  Do not list the films.  Cushion of 50 mill $400M

PLAYERS:
 
There may be more preseason bonus questions added before the start of the game. It is doubtful, but I hold the right to add a question if it seems right.
 
The Ron Jeremy of all bonus questions
 
This is a four parter:
 
1) Will Avengers make at least 600 million domestically? NO
2) Will Avengers make more than a billion internationally? YES
3) Will Avengers do at least 25 million for previews NO
4)) Will Avengers make at least 1.8 billion WW? NO
 
Scoring: All questions you answer correctly are worth 7000 points. You can go for as many as you like.
 
Here is the catch: Every answer you call incorrectly you lose 10,000 points.
 
There are no points for abstaining, with one caveat down below. ***
 
Even more bonus and more treachery:
 
If you go 4/4 you get a 28,000 point bonus. So this means you will get a total of 56,000 points for this question (7000X4 plus 28,000 point bonus)
 
However, if you go for all 4 you must get all four correct. If you get even one incorrect, you will lose 20,000 points. So what this means is, if you go for all four and even if you get 3/4 correct, not only will you NOT get the 11,000 but you will lose a full 15,000 points.
 
This question is worth a lot of points for those ballsy enough to go for all 4, but it will kick your ass if you get too cocky. PLEASE READ THIS ONE CAREFULLY AND UNDERSTAND IT FULLY. IF YOU DO NOT, THEN ASK ME. ONCE THE GAME STARTS, CLAIMING YOU DIDN'T READ IT RIGHT WILL NOT BE AN EXCUSE.
 
THE BOTTOM LINE IS IF YOU GO FOR ALL FOUR QUESTIONS, YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST GET ALL FOUR RIGHT IN ORDER TO GET POINTS.
 
Remember, you don't have to answer any of them. Or you can answer as little as you want. It's totally up to you.
 
You can choose to go for as many or as little as you want.
 
***CAVEAT***
 
If you choose to abstain from all 4, you will get 5000 for doing so.
You must tell me if you are abstaining.
 
NEW QUESTION:
 
This is a four part question. Again, you have choices.
Answer any part of the question. Each answer you get correct you will receive 7000 points. Each answer you get wrong, you will lose 7000 points. If you go for all four parts of the question, you must get all four parts correct. If you get even one wrong after going for it all, you will lose 7,000 points. You can go for all of it, none of it and some of it. Choice is yours.
 
17)  Note*** Jurassic World does not qualify for this question

D) Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com have an opening day of more than 13 mill? YES
 
Get any question right: 7000
Get any question wrong: -7000
Abstain from all four questions: 5000
Go for all four, and get all four correct not only will you get the 28,000, you get a bonus of 28,000. But you must go for all four to qualify for the bonus

2) Germany:  31.5M NO
3) Portugal:  3M NO

Will Jurassic World and F7 combine to make more than Avengers in these markets?
 
1) Japan NO
2) United Kingdom YES

For every question you get wrong, you lose 2000 points.  These are mandatory questions, there is no abstaining.  Any player who is in this game, who does not answer these questions, loses 50,000 points.  Do not forget to do these.  Remember grosses count from May 1st until September 7th.

PLAYERS:

There may be more preseason bonus questions added before the start of the game. It is doubtful, but I hold the right to add a question if it seems right.

The Ron Jeremy of all bonus questions

This is a four parter:

1) Will Avengers make at least 600 million domestically?
2) Will Avengers make more than a billion internationally?
3) Will Avengers do at least 25 million for previews
4)) Will Avengers make at least 1.8 billion WW?

Scoring: All questions you answer correctly are worth 7000 points. You can go for as many as you like.

Here is the catch: Every answer you call incorrectly you lose 10,000 points.

There are no points for abstaining, with one caveat down below. ***

Even more bonus and more treachery:

If you go 4/4 you get a 28,000 point bonus. So this means you will get a total of 56,000 points for this question (7000X4 plus 28,000 point bonus)

However, if you go for all 4 you must get all four correct. If you get even one incorrect, you will lose 20,000 points. So what this means is, if you go for all four and even if you get 3/4 correct, not only will you NOT get the 11,000 but you will lose a full 15,000 points.

This question is worth a lot of points for those ballsy enough to go for all 4, but it will kick your ass if you get too cocky. PLEASE READ THIS ONE CAREFULLY AND UNDERSTAND IT FULLY. IF YOU DO NOT, THEN ASK ME. ONCE THE GAME STARTS, CLAIMING YOU DIDN'T READ IT RIGHT WILL NOT BE AN EXCUSE.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS IF YOU GO FOR ALL FOUR QUESTIONS, YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST GET ALL FOUR RIGHT IN ORDER TO GET POINTS.

Remember, you don't have to answer any of them. Or you can answer as little as you want. It's totally up to you.

You can choose to go for as many or as little as you want.

***CAVEAT***

If you choose to abstain from all 4, you will get 5000 for doing so.
You must tell me if you are abstaining.

ABSTAIN

NEW QUESTION:

This is a four part question. Again, you have choices.
Answer any part of the question. Each answer you get correct you will receive 7000 points. Each answer you get wrong, you will lose 7000 points. If you go for all four parts of the question, you must get all four parts correct. If you get even one wrong after going for it all, you will lose 7,000 points. You can go for all of it, none of it and some of it. Choice is yours.

17)  Note*** Jurassic World does not qualify for this question

A) Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com gross more than 100 million dollars this summer?
Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com open to more than 35 mill?
C) Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com have a second weekend drop of less than 47%?
D) Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com have an opening day of more than 13 mill?

Get any question right: 7000
Get any question wrong: -7000
Abstain from all four questions: 5000
Go for all four, and get all four correct not only will you get the 28,000, you get a bonus of 28,000. But you must go for all four to qualify for the bonus

ABSTAIN

Double Secret Probation Bonus Question

2) Germany:  31.5M

 

LESS

3) Portugal:  3M

 

LESS

4) China:  200M

MORE

If you go for this question, you must get all 4 correct.  This is not a partial question.  If you get at least 3 of the 4 correct, you will get 50,000.  If you choose to abstain from this question, you will lose 15,000 points.  If you go for the question and you do not get at least 3 or the 4 correct, you will lose 30,000 points.  Choose Wisely.

PLAYERS:

There may be more preseason bonus questions added before the start of the game. It is doubtful, but I hold the right to add a question if it seems right.

The Ron Jeremy of all bonus questions

This is a four parter:

1) Will Avengers make at least 600 million domestically? NO
2) Will Avengers make more than a billion internationally? YES
3) Will Avengers do at least 25 million for previews YES
4)) Will Avengers make at least 1.8 billion WW? NO

Scoring: All questions you answer correctly are worth 7000 points. You can go for as many as you like.

Here is the catch: Every answer you call incorrectly you lose 10,000 points.

There are no points for abstaining, with one caveat down below. ***

Even more bonus and more treachery:

If you go 4/4 you get a 28,000 point bonus. So this means you will get a total of 56,000 points for this question (7000X4 plus 28,000 point bonus)

However, if you go for all 4 you must get all four correct. If you get even one incorrect, you will lose 20,000 points. So what this means is, if you go for all four and even if you get 3/4 correct, not only will you NOT get the 11,000 but you will lose a full 15,000 points.

This question is worth a lot of points for those ballsy enough to go for all 4, but it will kick your ass if you get too cocky. PLEASE READ THIS ONE CAREFULLY AND UNDERSTAND IT FULLY. IF YOU DO NOT, THEN ASK ME. ONCE THE GAME STARTS, CLAIMING YOU DIDN'T READ IT RIGHT WILL NOT BE AN EXCUSE.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS IF YOU GO FOR ALL FOUR QUESTIONS, YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST GET ALL FOUR RIGHT IN ORDER TO GET POINTS.

Remember, you don't have to answer any of them. Or you can answer as little as you want. It's totally up to you.

You can choose to go for as many or as little as you want.

***CAVEAT***

If you choose to abstain from all 4, you will get 5000 for doing so.
You must tell me if you are abstaining.


NEW QUESTION:

This is a four part question. Again, you have choices.
Answer any part of the question. Each answer you get correct you will receive 7000 points. Each answer you get wrong, you will lose 7000 points. If you go for all four parts of the question, you must get all four parts correct. If you get even one wrong after going for it all, you will lose 7,000 points. You can go for all of it, none of it and some of it. Choice is yours.

17) Note*** Jurassic World does not qualify for this question

A) Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com gross more than 100 million dollars this summer? NO
Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com open to more than 35 mill? NO
C) Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com have a second weekend drop of less than 47%? YES
D) Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com have an opening day of more than 13 mill? YES

Get any question right: 7000
Get any question wrong: -7000
Abstain from all four questions: 5000
Go for all four, and get all four correct not only will you get the 28,000, you get a bonus of 28,000. But you must go for all four to qualify for the bonus


Double Secret Probation Bonus Question

Very simple, but very dangerous.

I'll give you a number, you tell me if Avengers will gross more or less than that number in said markets.

1) Russia: 42M - MORE
2) Germany: 31.5M MORE
3) Portugal: 3M MORE
4) China: 200M MORE

If you go for this question, you must get all 4 correct. This is not a partial question. If you get at least 3 of the 4 correct, you will get 50,000. If you choose to abstain from this question, you will lose 15,000 points. If you go for the question and you do not get at least 3 or the 4 correct, you will lose 30,000 points. Choose Wisely.

The "Hey maybe you haven't been keeping up on current events but we just got our asses kicked pal" question of debauchery.

Will Jurassic World and F7 combine to make more than Avengers in these markets?

1) Japan - NO
2) United Kingdom - YES
3) Columbia - NO
4) Mexico - YES

Each answer will be yes or no. Nothing more. You must get at least three correct. Get three correct, get a bonus of 50,000, don't get three correct, lose 25,000, abstain, lose 10,000.

As promised, here are your additional 20 25 questions for you. I love this part of the game. :)

For every question you get right, you receive 7000 points. For every question you get wrong, you lose 2000 points. These are mandatory questions, there is no abstaining. Any player who is in this game, who does not answer these questions, loses 50,000 points. Do not forget to do these. Remember grosses count from May 1st until September 7th.

PLAYERS:

There may be more preseason bonus questions added before the start of the game. It is doubtful, but I hold the right to add a question if it seems right.

The Ron Jeremy of all bonus questions

This is a four parter:

1) Will Avengers make at least 600 million domestically? NO
2) Will Avengers make more than a billion internationally? YES
3) Will Avengers do at least 25 million for previews YES
4)) Will Avengers make at least 1.8 billion WW? ABSTAIN

Scoring: All questions you answer correctly are worth 7000 points. You can go for as many as you like.

Here is the catch: Every answer you call incorrectly you lose 10,000 points.

There are no points for abstaining, with one caveat down below. ***

Even more bonus and more treachery:

If you go 4/4 you get a 28,000 point bonus. So this means you will get a total of 56,000 points for this question (7000X4 plus 28,000 point bonus)

However, if you go for all 4 you must get all four correct. If you get even one incorrect, you will lose 20,000 points. So what this means is, if you go for all four and even if you get 3/4 correct, not only will you NOT get the 11,000 but you will lose a full 15,000 points.

This question is worth a lot of points for those ballsy enough to go for all 4, but it will kick your ass if you get too cocky. PLEASE READ THIS ONE CAREFULLY AND UNDERSTAND IT FULLY. IF YOU DO NOT, THEN ASK ME. ONCE THE GAME STARTS, CLAIMING YOU DIDN'T READ IT RIGHT WILL NOT BE AN EXCUSE.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS IF YOU GO FOR ALL FOUR QUESTIONS, YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST GET ALL FOUR RIGHT IN ORDER TO GET POINTS.

Remember, you don't have to answer any of them. Or you can answer as little as you want. It's totally up to you.

You can choose to go for as many or as little as you want.

***CAVEAT***

If you choose to abstain from all 4, you will get 5000 for doing so.
You must tell me if you are abstaining.


NEW QUESTION:

This is a four part question. Again, you have choices.
Answer any part of the question. Each answer you get correct you will receive 7000 points. Each answer you get wrong, you will lose 7000 points. If you go for all four parts of the question, you must get all four parts correct. If you get even one wrong after going for it all, you will lose 7,000 points. You can go for all of it, none of it and some of it. Choice is yours.

17)  Note*** Jurassic World does not qualify for this question ABSTAIN FROM ALL

A) Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com gross more than 100 million dollars this summer?
Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com open to more than 35 mill?
C) Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com have a second weekend drop of less than 47%?
D) Will any film listed as a horror OR thriller film by boxofficemojo.com have an opening day of more than 13 mill?

Get any question right: 7000
Get any question wrong: -7000
Abstain from all four questions: 5000
Go for all four, and get all four correct not only will you get the 28,000, you get a bonus of 28,000. But you must go for all four to qualify for the bonus

 

Double Secret Probation Bonus Question

 

Very simple, but very dangerous.

 

I'll give you a number, you tell me if Avengers will gross more or less than that number in said markets.

 

1) Russia:  42M MORE

2) Germany:  31.5M MORE

3) Portugal:  3M LESS

4) China:  200M MORE

 

If you go for this question, you must get all 4 correct.  This is not a partial question.  If you get at least 3 of the 4 correct, you will get 50,000.  If you choose to abstain from this question, you will lose 15,000 points.  If you go for the question and you do not get at least 3 or the 4 correct, you will lose 30,000 points.  Choose Wisely.

 

The "Hey maybe you haven't been keeping up on current events but we just got our asses kicked pal" question of debauchery.

 

Will Jurassic World and F7 combine to make more than Avengers in these markets?

 

1) Japan YES

2) United Kingdom YES

3) Columbia YES

4) Mexico YES

 

Each answer will be yes or no.  Nothing more.  You must get at least three correct.  Get three correct, get a bonus of 50,000, don't get three correct, lose 25,000, abstain, lose 10,000.

 

As promised, here are your additional 20 25 questions for you.  I love this part of the game.    :)

 

For every question you get right, you receive 7000 points. For every question you get wrong, you lose 2000 points.  These are mandatory questions, there is no abstaining.  Any player who is in this game, who does not answer these questions, loses 50,000 points.  Do not forget to do these.  Remember grosses count from May 1st until September 7th.

 

All grosses come from boxofficemojo.com, all genres are determined by boxofficemojo.com.....so if I ask you a question about a romance, if that film is listed as a sci-fi/romance, then it will qualify as a romance.
