Winter SOTM 8: Who wants to be a Star Wars (not quite) Millionaire - D/L Sun January 3rd 11:59pm

Recommended Posts

Okay then, with one final question and a strange deadline that will screw over at least one person I am sure, we shall end all the focus on Star Wars:

 

Question: Name a film that will be outgrossed by Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

 

There easy :) ... oh wait, what's that? that's not the question? Well then what is the question?... questions? But... but... but that's insanity!! Fine! okay, we'll do it, but I want it on record that I object to this type of questioning! It failed with Mockingjay last winter, it's going to fail now too.

 

Okay, this what is about to go down:

 

I am going to give you a list of questions, all with 2-4 possible answers.

You must start at question 1 and work down from there, no picking or choosing.

You can stop answering whenever you like

There are lifelines (I'll get to those later) :)

 

1000     Will Star Wars outgross The Avengers?

2000     Will Star Wars outgross Titanic?

4000     Will Star Wars outgross Avatar?

7000     Will Star Wars outgross Titanic before the end of 2015?

10000   Will Star Wars be the highest grossing film in January?

 

16000   Will Star Wars be the highest grossing film from February 1st to the end of the game?

20000   Will Star Wars gross more than $875M?

24000   How many new releases on January 15th will have a larger weekend gross than Star Wars?

28000   How many weekends in January (excluding New Years W/E) will Star Wars be Number 1?

32000   Will Star Wars gross more than $1B?

 

40000   Will Star Wars' 2016 winter Game gross be closer to Empires' total gross (290M), A new Hope's ($461M), or Jedi's ($309M) 

50000   Will Star Wars gross more in China or the USA over the duration of its Chinese release?

60000   Will Star Wars enter the top 5 on the all time list adjusted for Inflation ($1.13B)?

80000   Will Star Wars have a weekend gross increase in 2016 by the end of the game?

100000 Will Star Wars pass Titanic's Worldwide total by the end of the game?

 

Rules:

 

You start at 1000 and work down, no choosing and no skipping.

If you get all the questions you answered correct, then you win points equal to the value of the final question you answered.

If you get even one wrong though and you lose points equal to the value of the final question you answered.

 

You have 3 lifelines and they work as follows:

 

1. VOID - You may write this in place of an answer once (and once only), this will jump you to the next question on the list as if you answered this one correctly.

 

2. LIFESAVER - Write this alongside the question's answer. If you get the answer correct, proceed as normal. Get it wrong and instead of losing everything, the question will be treated as if answered correctly and you may continue but the maximum prize you can win is cut in half (the potential losses stay the same though).

 

3. CUT SHORT - Write this alongside the question's answer. If you get the answer correct, proceed as normal. Get it wrong and instead of losing points equal to the most expensive question attempted, you will lose points equal to this question's value instead.

 

You may use as many or as few lifelines as you wish and cannot use multiple lifelines on the same question.    

 

I think I may actually have been driven insane by flu.

I am confused on the cut short lifeline. Wouldn't it only be logical for everyone to use it on question one, so if they get an answer wrong they only lose 1000 points? Am I misunderstanding something?

 

The lifeline only activates if you get that specific question wrong. so you put it with question 1, it only helps you if you get question 1 wrong. No other questions.

But isn't that the same thing as losing the normal way? I mean unless you use your lifesaver or void one, if you answer incorrectly, that's where you stop.

ah, the difference is this.

 

If you decide to answer all the way up to 100,000 but then get the 20,000 question wrong, you will lose 1000,000 points as that is how far you decided to commit to.

 

However if you had used cut short on the 20,000 point question, then you will only lose 20,000 points instead of the full 100,000 you would stand to lose if any other question in the tree was answered incorrectly.

And the deadline to answer it is Jan 3rd?

 

Take it as a freebie :) Besides, it will probably have passed at least Avengers by then too so there are a few free points to be had if you notice.

 

The trick is to hope that others don't pick up on that by announcing it to the playerbas... oh ;):P

But am I playing Chasmmi's Winter Game or Chasmmi's Star Wars' game?

 

Star Wars is responsible for turning December into the Star Wars Game :) Just like how Jem dominated earlier in the game.

 

I do promise that this is the final SOTM to focus on Star Wars at all. :)

 

As for weekly questions, that depends on how long it annoyingly stays at number 1 and ruins things for the rest of us :D

Yes I know, SW is the most important movie of the Game: but can we value someone's "BoxOffice Skills" by the ability to predict one movie that has trascended all BoxOffice rules? 

 

Nevermind, mine wasn't a critique
