Question of the Week Survival Thread | All done and Scored | 3 Players got all the way to end but needed 2 passes each to get through......

Recommended Posts

NEW THING ALERT!!! NEW THING ALERT!!!

 

Not quite an SOTM, but also not quite a preseason. This is a little bit like the old Who wants to be a Millionaire SOTM of the past but it runs every week. 

 

It is one thread. One question per week and a simple Yes/No or Over/Under question. 

 

e.g. Guardians of the Galaxy 2 makes $100M Over / Under?

 

Players post in this thread their prediction and the thread is locked over the weekend. 

 

Players who are correct win 15,000 points and move on to the next question. (They will get progressively harder, theoretically). 

 

If you get a question wrong you are out and lose half of the points that you have accumulated over the course of the challenge. 

 

If you do not feel confident one a question, you can cash out at anytime, taking all the points you have earned to that point and end your involvement in the question.

 

Players will be given two chances to PASS. A pass means that they can move on to the next question but will not be credited with any extra money until they get another question correct. If they cash out or get a question wrong after a pass - the value is equal to that of the last question answered correctly, NOT the question reached.

 

If a player fails to post an answer before the deadline, they automatically use a PASS. If they do not have a PASS they will be automatically cashed out, but will lose 20% of what they made.

 

The challenge continues either until all players are cashed out or eliminated or the Summer Game ends.

 

There is potential to win 285,000 points in this challenge if you answer every question correctly with no passes.    

 

If a player somehow manages this, it will get boosted up to 300,000 but do not expect this to happen. 

 

 

Current Status after Week 2:

 

Red = You are out and that is your final score (either wrong answer, or cashed out)

Green = Still in and have 2 passes left

Blue = Still in and have 1 pass left

Purple = Still in but with Zero passes left

Week 1: Yes 

 

@Wrath no i think @chasmmi intended to lock the thread after the weekly answer is due.  score once actuals are out ... advise who is still in the game and then we post a NEW post for week 2.  IN THIS THREAD!  Once scored you then can post whether to cash out or you post next weeks answer i believe.... Chas can confirm i got this right.

Week 1: Yes

 

EDIT: @chasmmi if we got it wrong, do we lose all the points we earned for this question game, or in the entire summer game including our predictions?

 

This question is its own question, all points won and lost relate to this only nothing outside of this thread.

I see the advantage of not letting people go back and edit their responses "Are you SURE you had GotG 2 UNDER $125M originally???". Keeping everyone's responses in a single post would certainly be easier to track. I guess it depends on the record-keeping systems you guys have going.

I get the worry, I will however update post one with a running score of everyone in game.
