      Entertainment Zone's Blockbuster Quiz!



      How To Play The Blockbuster Quiz?

      Each day at a designated set of times, quizmaster Thanos (aka a moderator) will invade your forum-based planet armed with questions from six different categories, derived from the six Infinity Stones of entertainment knowledge. The first question category will be chosen at random from the following:

      Space & Sci-Fi Reality & Biography
      Heroes & Villians Musical Minds
      Time Travel Comedy For The Soul



      Space & Sci-Fi: What is says on the rocket tin. Films about space travel, science fiction including both aliens and ghosts, and horror. Examples include Star Wars, Aliens and Men In Black.

      Reality & Biography: Films based in reality, biopics of famous names and based on true events stories. Examples include Titanic, Dunkirk and Lawrence Of Arabia.

      Heroes & Villians: A majority of the superhero films fit here, but fantasy and action thrillers also get involved. Examples include The Avengers, Lord Of The Rings and Die Hard.

      Musical Minds: It's all singing, all dancing with this category, whether in live-action or animated form. Examples include The Sound Of Music, La La Land and The Lion King.

      Time Travel: Any film using time travel devices definitely fits here, but also period films from the ancient past & distant futures. Examples include Back To The Future, Gladiator & Blade Runner.

      Comedy For The Soul: Rom-Coms, animated comedies, family comedies, you name it if it is mostly laughs. Examples include Home Alone, Airplane and Madagascar.

      If you are first to answer the question correctly, you will earn yourself that stone and a point. You can then choose to bank this stone and hold on to your point(s), but you will be locked out until all six stones have been collected in that round.

      Once you answer a question correctly, you can choose the next subject as the 'gauntlet holder'. Everyone else competing will still have the chance to answer the next question however.

      There also will be the possibility to steal a stone from another player if they haven't banked it, which will be conducted in a 1v1 question with both players in a chat lobby. However, if you answer incorrectly and hold an un-banked stone, others will have the chance to steal yours!

      In the interests of fairness, we will only accept the first answer given to each question. That means both the first member to answer and the first answer they give. Any edited answers will not be counted.

      Earning all six stones in a row will grab you a bonus point, meaning 7 points are up for grabs each round!

      If you've ever played Trivial Pursuit, this is simply an all-entertainment themed special of that, so answer questions, get the stones and either bank them or collect all for the mighty SNAP!


      How Will I Know When A Round Is Starting?
      If you wish to be subscribed to this event, make your interest known and you'll be added to a list that will be tagged at least an hour before each round, giving everyone equal time to take part. You can also Subscribe to Threadwhich can be found in 'Thread Tools at the top right of this post to keep up to date.


      Rounds will take place three times a day, at the following times:
      3pm BST/ 10am EDT/ 8am PST
      7pm BST/ 2pm EDT/ 12pm PST
      11pm BST/ 6pm EDT/ 4pm PST

      (If anyone wishes for any timezones to be added or there's a lot of people who can't make these times, let us know so we can make the appropriate changes).

      When Does This Event Start & End?

      The Blockbuster Quiz will commence on Sunday June 10th, and will run for at least two weeks. At the end of the quiz, points will be tallied and awards will be handed out to our lucky winners!

      What Do I Get?
      ♦ 1st Place 250 AL Points, a shiny gauntlet award to conquer the universe with, and bragging rights

      ♦ 2nd Place 150 AL Points and a hero's award.

      ♦ 3rd Place 100 AL Points and a hero's award.


      Stay tuned for more information and keep those dates/ times handy so that you can play along. Happy stone hunting!

      Well I'm sure you can fight with your gauntlets and stones on another planet, as long as everyone's back in time for the quiz. Should probably note that we can't actually post gauntlets through doors. They have to be made by dwarven blacksmiths with the power of a sun first.

      Re: Entertainment Zone's Blockbuster Quiz!

      Surely it will be ticked with the gift label so that no tax is necessary...

      Then again with the gauntlet and stones you could force homeland revenue to give you your tax back amongst other things

      Re: Entertainment Zone's Blockbuster Quiz!

      Hmm....very good thinking. I could use the distortion of one of the stones to make it look like something else.

      This event has now been pushed back until June 10th, so that's plenty more time to marathon some films and get the research in!

      Re: Entertainment Zone's Blockbuster Quiz!

      We've resourced most of the questions for this via Trivial Pursuit itself, those Scene It games, Empire and Time Out. We're due to start this up the weekend after next once the chat party is finished. You can be added to a tag list for when the first round kicks off if you'd like?
