Piratey Fortunes!! Presented by "The Blue Effect"

Welcome, Ladies and Gentlemen, to Piratey Fortunes!! Presented by "The Blue Effect," test your ability to think logically, using both your wits and brains to correctly answer the questions!! Want to know more? Well, here's how it will work:
Qualifying Round:

Welcome to round one. In order to qualify for the live portion of the event, you will be required to answer the list of questions below with the answer that YOU think the majority (of 100 people) went for. For example:

Question One: Can you name..Something you do in bed?

70 / 100 people said "Sleep" This would score 70 points for the contestant!
19 / 100 people said "Make Love" This would score 19 points for the contestant!
6 / 100 people said "Read" This would score 6 points for the contestant!
4 / 100 people said "Watch TV" This would score 4 points for the contestant!
1 / 100 people said "Eat Breakfast" this would score 1 point for the contestant!

If you wish to compete, simply read the list of questions, and PM your answers to either Kth38, or phantoml for marking. All entries must be PMed by the 17th of December. We will disregard all entries after this date!!

After gathering the scores, we will post them the on the 18th of December in this thread. The top 10, however, will be entered into the 2nd round of this event. More on this part of the event after the qualifiers! Best of luck all!!

(Note: Those that finish in the top 10 will have to be free on December 21st, at 1:00PM PST! If you do finish in the top 10, and can?t compete in the next round on the 21st of December, then we will let you name a replacement, to compete in your place. Please note, however, that by doing this you pass up any rights to any prizes that may have been won. Keep that in mind, folks)

Current prizes include:
One painted War brig, The "Harsh Stickleback" (Painted, no stock)
- PoE prizes, taken from a current prize pot of 50k



In the later "Live" Rounds, there will also be a range of local - only tournaments to keep the crowds entertained. At the moment, these will feature a 5k PoE prize, along with a suitable prize for that puzzle type. (Ie, a mug for drinking, sword for the swordfight, etc)

More details will be posted as and when the dates of the Live event are prepared!!

Good Luck all!

Unfortunately, it is. Sorry.
I ran a similar event back in April, and I allowed people to send another entry. It took a long time to check through them all, and this time round, we're on a deadline to get them all marked.

Re: Piratey Fortunes!! Presented by ?The Blue Effect?

I do hope you'll be posting the various answers to each question at some point. Now that I see myself on the rank list I've started wondering, "should I have said X instead of Y?"...

I do not think I will post all of the answers for each of them, but I will post the top answer for each of the questions. If you would like more answers to a certain question, then I will happily give you a couple of questions at a time through PM's after Round 1 is over.

Re: Piratey Fortunes!! Presented by ?The Blue Effect?

Due to the forums no longer having an 'edit' button, will not post anymore scores until the 18th.

Sorry about this all, but I do not want to make a new post every time.

Good Luck. And the event will be closing at 10AM PST on Sunday 17th. Just thought I would add.

Scores will be posted later that day if all are marked, and if not, on the 18th.

Re: Piratey Fortunes!! Presented by "The Blue Effect"

Brig Details

The brig thats being given away as the main prize IS already painted.

Name: Harsh Stickleback
Paint: Green and Green

It comes unstocked, and uncharted, but I'm sure the PoE prize, (Currently exact figures are unconfirmed, but we have a pot of 50k for use throughout the evening) will make up for that.

Also, I'm currently working on local - only tournaments, to keep any viewers entertained during breaks in the event.

-Currently have brand new chalices, swords, and furni for the tournaments.

Quick note: While I can't confirm the exact amount of time the event will last, I can gurantee that it will take a good few hours to play through to the end. More details will be posted on the live event when round 1 closes!!

Re: Piratey Fortunes!! Presented by 'The Blue Effect'

Round 2:
Qualifyers will be jobbed onto a ship. Everyone on the ship will then do a round, similar to Round One, but instead, everyone will shout their answers on the ship, with about 30 seconds to answer. The first person that answers the top answer will then be awarding the awarded points. If no one should find the top answer, then I look for the second answer, and award those points, and respectively 3rd, 4th and 5th answers. Should no one have found any of these, a different question shall be asked. Only one person will be able to score a point in each of the 20 questions asked. The points that you are awarded will be given as PoE prizes. 1 point is 1 PoE. The two people with the top scores will then be invited to Kgeo’s Estate for Round 3.

Round 3 (a.k.a. the showdown)
This round involves the use of lifelines. Every time a member in your team gets an answer wrong, you lose a lifeline. You only have three of these. After this, the other team gets a chance to take over.

In this round, you will need 4 mates to help you. These do not have to be crew mates or flag members. You will then play the opposing team (the other finalist) head to head, through a series of rounds. Firstly, the finalist will take to the stand, and when I type the question, for that person to make some sort of signal to inform me that they would like to take their guess (It would be a bad idea to shout out your answer, in case the other team is right, and get their answer in before you, and them using your answer), even if this signal is as simple as, “Beep”. If you can give the top answer to the question, you will then be given the chance to play (continue the game with your team, and hopefully get the rest of the answers), or pass (continue play on the other team, hoping they reveal some of the answers, but losing all three lifelines.) If you get an answer, but doesn’t make the top answer, then the opposition gets a chance. They who have the highest answer (answers being put in descending order, from that of which point value is greater) will get the choice whether to play or pass.

If you decide to play, then the host will ask the next person in your line for an answer. If they guess correctly, then the points will be added up into the total, and move onto the next person. After the 5th person has taken their guess, game continues again from the first of the same team. If they guess incorrectly, you will lose one lifeline, and move onto the next person. If you lose all three of your lifelines, then each member on the opposing team will be given 5 seconds each to suggest an answer they think might be on the answer sheet. The leader of that team, will then have to pick an answer (which doesn’t have to be one of those just said), and put that forward as the teams answer. If that answer is correct, the opposing team wins all of the points, excluding how many points their answer received. If it is incorrect, your team receives all that you have rightfully won.

Play continues like this in the next round, but instead of the team leader taking the stand, the next person in the team must. This happens again for Round 3. Round 4 and 5, are the exact same as rounds 1, 2 and 3, except that all the PoE prizes are doubled. These rounds are called, ‘double money’ rounds.

Round 3.S
At the end of all of these rounds, the points are added up, and the losing team will have the points they won doubled, and given to the team leader as a consolation prize. The winning team leader will then have to pick to people to do the final part (this can, but does not need to be the leader).

The two people will stand next to each other, as the host will read out the question. The person on the left will have about 10 seconds to make an answer, and on the hosts call, the second person the same amount of time, afterwards to give another answer. You only get one guess each. 4 more questions are asked like this one, and only then, will the answers be revealed.

All the surveys are done by 100 people, and so with one guess for each question, a certain number of points must be met for a large prize. If between the two people who guessed answers, for each of the five questions, they score 200 points, a prize of 10,000 PoE, and if they score 200 points with all top answers found, then a prize of the War Brig.

---

If you have any questions at all on this, please find Kgeo in game, or PM kth38 in the forums. I will try and check daily and respond as soon as possible.

Good Luck all.

Re: Piratey Fortunes!! Presented by ?The Blue Effect?

At Approximately 1PM PST (game time) on the 21st of December, I shall begin to Job the top 10 contestants onto the ship "The Krakens Tear."

If any contestants wish to be jobbed earlier, I shall be present on the ship from about quarter to 1 (12.45PM) Simply send a /tell to chaosdragon, and I'll get you the event ship. I will continue jobbing until quarter past the hour, (1.15PM) and any contestants NOT PRESENT ON THE SHIP BY THIS TIME WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.

Once all contestants are aboard, or the cut off time has been reached, I shall commence round 2 of the Piratey Fortunes event.

Details of how the points will be distributed will be given on the day, but once the top 10 are decided, they shall both be invited to Kgeos Estate, for round 3, the final round.

----------------------------------------------------------

Round 3 WILL be open to viewers, and as such many tournaments will be played throughout gaps in the event. We plan to host 4 local only tournaments, one for each of the carousing puzzles (Swordfight, Drinking, Treasure Drop and Rumble) Each will have a 5k prize, along with an item relating to the puzzle.

Current prize pool:

Drinking - 5000 PoE, Holiday Wreath, Brand New Chalice (Yellow)

Swordfight - 5000 PoE, Holiday Wreath, awaiting conformation of sword colour and type

Rumble - 5000 PoE, Holiday Wreath, Brass Knuckles (Green and red)

Treasure Drop - 5000 PoE, Holiday Wreath, Treasure Drop Table

These will be local only tournaments, so send a /tell to Sgtsmith, Kgeo or Chaosdragon for an invite to the main event!!! (Which, again, will be held in KGEO'S ESTATE, on EPSILON ISLAND)

Round 3 details will be announced at the proper time, but it will be a TEAM ROUND.

Thanks again to all the participants, and I'm looking forward to seeing you all on the 21st of December.

Re: Piratey Fortunes!! Presented by ?The Blue Effect?

Ok, the rules have been changed ever so slighty, to make for a fairer, and more fun event for both contestants and spectators.

Round 2 will be treated as a shout out: I shall read a question, and players will then follow with there answer. The first person to give the top answer get the points value awarded to them, as well as the same amount of PoE.

(IE, top answer is "Pottery", worth 67 points. The conestant gets the 67 points, as well as 67 PoE)

I then look for the 2nd highest answer, again awarding points and PoE where possible.

This will continue for a total of 10 questions, where abouts I will have all 10 contestants listed by points values. This is to "Seed" the contestants into two teams. After this round is complete, 2 members of "The Blue Effect" shall create 2 new crews, called "Team A" and "Team B." This is so that each team of 5 has access to the "Jobbing" Chat channel, and can converse between themselves with ease.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

From this point, 10 questions will be asked. Answers may be spoken about via "Jobbing" (Or indeed the house chat, if you want the opposing team to know your answer!!), but final answers must be sent via /tell to Kgeo, who will be hosting round 3.

The team that has the most points at the end of this will be allowed to remain on stage for the final part of the contest. At this point, the losing team will be given there prizes, and asked to leave the stage. The winning team will also be removed from there team crew, as the final part is a singular event.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

A break will be held here, where the Local - Only tournys will be held. More details in my previous post.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

The last part of this event will be held between the 5 members of the winning team. Each contestant will get 2 lifelines. Questions will be asked to each person, one at a time. The contestant will have to reply with one of the top 2 answers to keep there life lines in one piece. As people lose both life-lines, Kgeo will issue prizes, and will help them off the stage. This will continue, until there is but one contestant left, who will be issued with the painted war brig, and monetary prizes.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

As I've said before, we urge people to come and watch the event, which is guranteed to be fun and entertaining. And if not for the entertainment, come for the tournaments that will be held in the intermission!!!

Once Again, This is being held at Kgeo's estate, on Epsilon Island. Come along and have some fun!!

The estate will be open all day for people to wait, but we will begin entertainment (mini tournaments, quizzes, etc) at about
1.45. These will not be the main tournys, and will not feature the prizes I outlined above. These will be given out later in the afternoon)


(Contestants, if you can't make it, please contact myself or Kgeo ASAP with the name of your replacement. Looking forward to seeing you all at 1PM)

Woohoo. I'll be, sadly, busy pillaging throughout this event. (see appropriate thread in this forum.)

How long are you expecting the next round to take? It's a bit of a difficult time for me as it'll be at a time I'll be at work and I'm not sure how long I can get away.

Re: Piratey Fortunes!! Presented by ?The Blue Effect?

Ok I thought I had it mostly understood... but then the changes were made.

 
From this point, 10 questions will be asked. Answers may be spoken about via "Jobbing" (Or indeed the house chat, if you want the opposing team to know your answer!!), but final answers must be sent via /tell to Kgeo, who will be hosting round 3.

The team that has the most points at the end of this will be allowed to remain on stage for the final part of the contest. At this point, the losing team will be given there prizes, and asked to leave the stage. The winning team will also be removed from there team crew, as the final part is a singular event.


Will a certain team "captain" be appointed so that person's tell is the official final answer? Is time a factor? How much time really should be spent discussing?


 
The last part of this event will be held between the 5 members of the winning team. Each contestant will get 2 lifelines. Questions will be asked to each person, one at a time.

So it's kind of... 2 strikes you're out? Lifelines confuses me becuase it's obviously not like Who wants to be a Millionare... lol

Re: Piratey Fortunes!! Presented by ?The Blue Effect?

Just so I am understanding correctly again, we no longer need mates to help us in any round? So it's no longer really lke Family Feud?

For the record I liked the original set up better : /

Re: Piratey Fortunes!! Presented by ?The Blue Effect?

I thought I would write here what exactly is going to happen for everyone.

Players will then be invited into the back garden for part 1 of Round 3. In this round, teams will have to talk through their /jcrew channels and come to a unanimous decision and the leader, (The leader will of each team will be told by myself before hand) must then /tell Kgeo that teams final answer.

A round of 10 Questions will be asked, and at the end, scores will determine which team goes through to sudden death.

--
Tournements will be made here, and everyone, including the participants will be allowed to take part.
Tournement details are as follows:
Swordfighting: Bring your own. 1 game per match.
Drinking: Bring your own. 4 colors. Playing to 1500. 1 game per match.
Rumble: Bring your own. 1 game per match.
Treasure Drop: Holes. 4th round halved. 30 seconds per move.

Round 3 will not continue until all tournements are finished.
--

The team of 5 people who made it into sudden death, again take the stage. for this, everyone has 2 lifelines.
You will be asked a question and will have a few seconds to answer (between 10 and 15).

- If you correctly answer a question, you can choose someone else to answer the same question, but have to choose a different answer to what you picked.
- If you incorrectly answer a question, you lose a lifeline, and the same question is asked to the next person in the row.

After 2 people have made sucessful guesses, a new question will be asked, but the last person who made a correct answer will still have choice of who gets the Question

When you have lost both your lifelines, you will be awarded all the PoE you were awarded during the questions and helped off the stage, leaving the remaining players.

The last remaining player will have the PoE they won trebled, and awarded to them, along with the War Brig, 'Harsh Sticleback'.

GOOD LUCK ALL
For everyone wanting to spectate, the doors of the Estate on Epsilon Island will be opened from about the same time. Somewhere in that slot before the qualifiers arrive, there will be a mini-quiz with prizes.

This is meant to follow on from...
 
This will continue for a total of 10 questions, where abouts I will have all 10 contestants listed by points values. This is to "Seed" the contestants into two teams. After this round is complete, 2 members of "The Blue Effect" shall create 2 new crews, called "Team A" and "Team B." This is so that each team of 5 has access to the "Jobbing" Chat channel, and can converse between themselves with ease.

Re: Piratey Fortunes!! Presented by ?The Blue Effect?

The Event is now over!!

The final results are:

Sisterali walked away with the painted brig, 10,000 PoE, and all the money she won throughout the afternoon

Ceylon won 5,000 PoE, and all of the money she one throughout the afternoon

Frankiejoe won the sworfight tournament, winning a good chunk of the 5k prize money, a new dirk, a holiday wreath, and a swordfight table. He also won the money he's earned throughout the evening.

Bridalgirl won the drinking tournament, winning a new, yellow gauntlet, a good cunk of 5k, and a holiday wreath. She also took home the money she won throughout the event.

Phantasia won the rumble tournament (Unconfirmed), winning a pair of green and red brass knuckles, a holiday wreath, and a good chunk of 5k.

In all the excitment, the Treasure drop tournament wasn't set to local only, meaning some lucky pirate is walking around with a holiday wreath, prize money, and a new treasure drop table!!


Thanks to everyone that came to watch, we had a blast hosting this event. There are a few more events in the works, so keep an eye out for another event by "The blue effect" in the new year!!

Merry christmas all, and a happy new year!!
Thanks again!!
