The grand ol' 2nd Anniversary Celebration Trivia Contest!


Rules:

1. You only get ONE shot. Make sure you have the answers right before sending them in to me because there are no second tries.

2. Email your answers to me at karate_kidzero@yahoo.com (actual link provided elsewhere) and do NOT send them via any of the game email lists (don't want to share your answers with someone else, esp. as you may be incorrect).

3. You may email me, if stumped, for a grand total of THREE hints (you may email 3 times for one hint each, or other combinations so long as they comprise no more than a total of three hints)

4. The deadline is February 1st, so take your time. Though, the first set of correct answers that I receive will be the winner.
(4a. Do not try and be crafty by altering the time/date on your computer in order to get an earlier submission time, I will notice it, and consider it cheating -- which will disqualify you)

5. In the event of a tie, certain questions (known only to me) have secret extra-credit values applied to them in the event you can provide a piece of added trivia on top of the actual correct answers
e.g. If I were to ask for you to name all of the heroes who use the name Flash and you included a supplementary answer indicating alternate universe flashes AFTER listing all the flashes required for the answer, you'd receive extra credit and would have a higher chance of winning in the very unlikely situation that 2 or more of you send in the correct answers at the same exact time.

6. In the event that no one succeeds in answering all the questions correctly, I will hold a lightning round for either the top three or top five closest entries (will be determined by number of entries).

7. If anything is unclear about the RULES, feel free to email for clarification

8. The semantics of the actual questions DO count, so pay close attention to the wording.

9. You should not work together. If I learn anyone has given anyone else any of the answers that person will be disqualified. This bunch is notoriously bad at keeping things quiet too, so odds are you can't be sneaky enough.

10. Good luck!

SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION (Rules: You need to connect the two people supplied in six connections or less. Simply having teamed up once or twice, or during company-wide cross-overs doesn't count - i.e. Impulse doesn't connect to Ray just because they were both around at the meetings during Final Night. Connections need to be more real, they trained together, were members of the same team, are related, are reincarnations of each other, etc. In the aforementioned example, Impulse would connect to Ray this way: Impulse-Wally West (quasi-related, Flash family, etc.)-Wonder Woman (on JLA together)-Ray II (also on JLA, diff. team, together)-Ray (father of Ray II) - and that's under six steps. cool?)
