Welcome to the Tintin Trivia Challenge forum!
There should be only one active question thread in the Tintin Trivia Challenge forum any one time.
Questions should be based on the English language colour edition Tintin books.
Questions can be easy or challenging. No trick questions: there is a one point penalty for posting an impossible/trick question.
A maximum of 3 answers may be sought per question. If an answer has more possibilities than that, any 3 correct answers from the over-all selection will count as a solution.
Each player is allowed 1 attempt per question. The first player to post the correct answer sets the next question. (You cannot answer your own question.)
If the top placed player is 10 or more points away from his/her nearest rival, he/she must wait 24 hours before he/she may answer the next question.
If a question is not answered 24 hours after initial posting, the member who posted the question must offer clues to keep the game moving.
If a question is not answered 48 hours after initial posting (i.e. 24 hours after a clue is given), the member who posted the question must reveal the answer to close the question. Then anyone except the member who posted the previous 'unanswerable' question may post the next new question.
Before a new question can be posted, the poster of the previous question has to confirm the answer within 24 hours (failure to do so will incur a one point penalty, and the floor will be opened for a new question). The winner must post a new question in 24 hours.
To give up a turn to post a new question, just say pass; a one point penalty applies per pass.
If a new question is not posted 24 hours after confirmation of the previous correct answer, anyone may set the next question.
Starting from 22 May, 2006, the Score Keeper and the Forum Administrator may not take part in the quiz.
Starting from 07 November, 2006, Moderators Harrock n roll and jock123 may not take part in the quiz; when necessary, they may set new questions to keep the game alive.
Except for those named above, forum staff may take part in the quiz - their moderating privileges do not extend to the Trivia Challenge Forum.
One point for the first correct answer.
One point penalty, or exclusion from play for one turn if no points to deduct, for posting an impossible question.
One point penalty, or exclusion from play for one turn if no points to deduct, for failing to confirm the answer within 24 hours.
