Question of the Week Summer Survival Thread - Hopefully harder than Winter edition...

Recommended Posts

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. Ragnarok makes $100M Over / Under?


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


Survivor Thread Tweaks:


1 question per week for 20 weeks


Correct answer is 20000 points (Cumulates)

Incorrect answer cashes you out at half the points won over the player's current answer streak

Cash Out cashes you out at full points won



After cashing out, players are automatically reentered into the next question, but the points per question is reduced as follows:


After first reentry - 15,000 points

After Second reentry - 10,000 points

After Third Reentry - 7,000 points

After Fourth Reentry - 5,000 points

After Fifth Reentry - 3,000 points is the lowest limit.



If a player gets all the way to the end without being wrong or cashing out, they will get a 150,000 point bonus.

If a player gets all the way to the end without being wrong with 1 cash out, they will get a 100,000 point bonus.

If a player gets all the way to the end without being wrong with 2 cash outs, they will get a 75,000 point bonus.

If a player gets all the way to the end without being wrong with 3 cash outs, they will get a 50,000 point bonus.

If a player gets all the way to the end without being wrong with 4 or more cash outs, they will get a 25,000 point bonus.
