Trivia Trick or Treat - October 28



Do you miss the days of dressing up in shiny costumes and wandering the streets with your friends in a giggling mob, knocking on doors and collecting candy? Well, here's your chance to do it again, pirate-style! Of course, we don't have candy to give out, but there are plenty of other prize items available.

What's with the "Trivia" part, you ask? Well, surely you didn't expect to get something for nothing! You must correctly answer a trivia question in order to get your prize at each home you trick or treat at.

Are costumes required? Of course they are, but don't worry. You can get away with just dressing as a pirate. But be warned: one of the homes isn't asking trivia, it's actually the judging station for the Costume Contest. And I can promise you that a "pirate" costume won't win you anything there.

The Basics:
Event: Trivia Trick or Treat
Date: Saturday, October 28
Time: 6pm - 8pm PST
Where: Select Houses all over Midnight

How to play:
1. The list of trick or treat homes and the event rules will be listed in this thread and in the front room news of each participating home.
2. You may go to the homes in any order. To help you get started, there will be a whisk to one of the homes available from the Notice Board.
3. Please use ferries, etc. as much as possible to get to the homes. If you cannot get to a home w/o a whisk, send a tell to the listed contact that says, "invite me".
4. At each home, knock, and once inside, say, "trick or treat."
5. You will be asked a trivia question which you must answer correctly in order to win a treat. Questions may be asked via tell or house chat, depending on location. Please answer in the same way you are asked.
6. Proceed to another home on the list, and repeat!
7. You may only participate at each home one time. Anyone found taking a second try will be given one warning; a repeat offense will lead to being banned from the event.
8. You may be asked trivia about Halloween, pirates, or anything else. Each home has its own set of trivia questions.
9. The treats will vary with the difficulty of the trivia. Some homes are asking easy questions with small prizes such as bandanas; others are asking extremely tough trivia with prizes such as sloops or trinkets. Some houses have trivia and prizes that fall between these two categories.
10. One home will be judging the Trick or Treat Costume Contest. At that house, you will be invited to explain what you are dressed as. At the end of the event, prizes will be awarded for the most creative costumes.
11. Prizes will be given out on a "first come, first serve" basis. Each home has only a certain number of prizes to dispense, so don't be late.
12. Remember you are a guest in the home you are answering trivia at and behave accordingly. Things may get hectic or crowded if 15 people show up at once. Just be patient, and wait you turn. Hosts have the right to /plank participants from their home for spamming or other disruptive behavior.

List of Homes:
(Whisking contacts listed in parentheses)
Berryboo's Estate on Jorvik (Notice Board Whisk)
Calyx's Estate on Islay of Luthien (Adesh)
Feylind's Manor on Turtle (Feylind)
Yetidave's Manor on Turtle (Blynkin)
Taco's Row House on Winter Solstice (Taco)
Crierwy's Row House on Winter Solstice (Rbcka)
Maetar's Manor on Spring (Emmett)
Onelove's Manor on Spring (Onelove)
Carribean's Estate on Gaea (Esmereldee)
Pennsuedo's Villa on Guava (Urmom)
Shiskra's Villa on Delta (Donsmythe)
Lost and Crowned Palace on Park (Shellgames)
Jimminez's Row House on Hephaestus Forge (Ceylon)
Madmarymeade's Shack on Hephaestus Forge (Madmarymeade)
Shortyjack's Shack on Lagniappe (Shortyjack)
Bombasa's Cottage on Lagniappe (Annaleese)
Sigilwen's Estate on Namath (Alontiona)
Flutie's Bungalow on Zeta (Flutie)
Docryno's Villa on Winter Solstice (Francisgrace)


Prizes:
You think I'm going to tell you what is being given out where? Forget it! The surprise is half the fun. Okay, okay, I'll tell you what's up with prizes for the costume contest at least...

Costume Contest prizes:
*NEW* 1st place - Magic (black cat pet)
2nd place - Werewolf (dog pet)
3rd place - Ghost (white cat pet)
4th place - Witches cauldron and ingredients (lime dye barrel and jars furniture items)

Brought to you by:
This event is a group effort; many crews and flags have stepped up to sponsor one or more homes. And the list is still growing...
Bellacos Banditos
Dark Judgment
Dies Irae
Midnight Armada
Moonlighting
Raptus Regaliter
Seraph's Nightmare
Sultan's Sword
Vexallam Odiamus
Notorious Fandango
Tyr's Own
Keel Appeal
BOP
Midnight Birthday Bash (Taco)
Caper's Capers

Think it would be fun to sponsor a home?
It's not to late! If your crew or flag would be interested in running a home for this event, send me a PM, and we can discuss the details. Please keep in mind that the sponsors are providing their own house, prizes, and trivia questions :-) Deadline for accepting new home sponsors is October 15th.

Lol. Personally, I hope there are a lot of people on. Passing out prizes isn't much fun if there is no one knocking at the door to collect them :-) Since there is no puzzling involved here, I don't think lag should be too large of an issue.

Re: Trivia Trick or Treat - October 28

Just a quick note:

If anyone has been thinking they might like to sponsor a home but hasn't contacted me, please do so in the next few days. I can provide you with more detailed information about the event to help you decide. I want all the sponsors to have ample time to make preparations for their homes, so I am making October 15th the deadline for accepting new home sponsors.

The response has been great so far; there are currently 18 homes planned for the event. And the creativity the sponsors are putting into their homes is awesome! Every home is going to unique, and I expect the sponsors and participants alike to have a blast! :-)

Re: Trivia Trick or Treat - October 28

Fey you might want to put something that says each house has a certain amount of prizes so you better get to them quick and answer them fast!

For instance, if I have 50 prizes and I get 54 people to come to my house will they be mad if I don't have prizes for those 4 people? I hope not I'll have to kick them. :P

Lebandit, Moonlighting has already agreed to sponsor a home. Talk to Flutie if you want to help run it. If there are enough volunteers, there is no reason you shouldn't take it in shifts so you can all go trick or treating as well :-)

Good point. I will go back and add a "first come first serve" warning to the instructions. With 18 homes, it seems entirely possible that people may not get to all of them before some run out of prizes. This is just like RL trick or treating; when a house runs out of candy, they turn off the porch light,and stop answering the door. But there are still other houses to go to :-)

yeah, I think a "first come, first served" warning is better than saying this certain house has x prizes because that will lead to almost everyone going to the houses with the least prizes to get to them first..

Re: Trivia Trick or Treat - October 28

Well, I will consider the list of home sponsors finalized at this point. 18 homes to visit!

I still have openings for a few individuals to volunteers. If there is anyone out there interested in passing out prizes or judging the costume contest, please send me a PM or a /tell.

The count is still at 18 houses :-) I haven't finished the list because I don't know what house some of the sponsors are using. I'll update as I get the information I'm missing.

How do we get costumes for the Trick or Treat Trivia on Midnight?

Be creative... buy an outfit, or using clothing you already have. Come dressed as a historical figure, an object, whatever you like. With the huge variety of clothing and color options, its easy to find something to make a costume, whether you want to be Robin Hood or a nurse or a rainbow. You will get a chance to tell the judges what your costume is.

Edit: Sniped in my own thread by Taco :-) True, masks will probably be available by then in the palace shop, but are completely optional. You can design your costume with a mask or without.
