RFF TAR 19 Pick'em Game

 :future

Well T-Minus 10 days twenty two hours and three minutes the 19th season of TAR will be here.  :wohoo:   So it's time for me to start off the new season of the Pick-em Game. 


Everyone is welcome to play. :tup:

Some notes:   :rulz:

1.  The game is weekly, and runs until 7:55 pm eastern time unless otherwise noted. 
2.  A link will be provided at the top of this thread to where you will sign in to place your answers.
3.  Remember that you need to log into the linked game page.  You can create it with your current sign in info or you can pick a new one.  Remember to always sign in before inputting your answers.  If you don't the game will not record it.  You can even double check by logging in at a later date to see if your answers are still selected.  I really recommend caution as at least once a season a persons answers are not recorded. 
4.  If for some reason the site isn't working you can pm your answers directly to me.  As long as the time is before the cut off I will add them to the results of this thread, even though they won't be visible on the game page.
5.  I am going to hopefully have questions up by Tuesday before each episode, though anyone who has ever played before know that it is more likely to see them up before Thursday.  I really aim to do better.
6.  Answers will be posted on this thread after the episode airs.  And it frankly all depends on how fast I get to see the episode.  When posted I freely encourage everyone to correct any mistakes that I will make.  After a brief review period I will make a final judgment and then officially put the answers in the game.  The results of each week and the overall running totals will be posted here, and can be seen on the game page.
7.  If you have a question about any of the questions you can either ask on this thread (where everyone will see my answer) or you can ask by pm (where only you will see the answer).

OK I need a drink.   :martini:

WARNING

In edition to the normal weekly questions, this season will also start with a 400 point extra edition.

This will be up the same time the first week's question are posted, but will be for advanced episodes  :spoiler: .

Unlike the normal rounds, this one will close 48 hours after the airing on the Eastern Time Zone of the USofA of the first episode of the season.

Edit:  I assume this gives enough time for our World Wide friends to watch the first episode, if anyone normally doesn't get the first episode by that Tuesday let me know and I will extend the period the extra round will be open.

This will give you one episode to get the feel of the teams.  It will remain closed until all questions can be fully answered (Most likely the next to last episode). 

No question will be asked concerning the final leg (unless I am an idiot 50/50 chance there).

Since the realityfanforum.com site doesn't exist anymore your game site is gone too :( We may have to do it the old fashioned way.

You predict the outcome of each leg of the current season and see how many predictions you can get right. Mswood scores each round. :js:

Redwings is also hosting one of these in the Fantasy Games Board. :)

Thanks for your explanation!

Though different, it reminds me of the Mole game for TAR - China Rush S2 in Baidu postbar. We answer questions pertaining to one anonymous contestant who successfully survived till the finale.

Game should be up and running some time tomorrow.

When questions are up and running I will post a link to the game at the top of the first post.  I will also post the questions on the game board.

Players are encouraged to help me correct any errors.

NOTES: 

Spoilers

As a spoiler site, I will on occasion mention spoiler or word a question so that you could figure a spoiler out.

As far as game play, I try to make 95% of the questions be about something we don't have spoilers for. 

But the DAMNED (GREAT) detectives are constantly figuring out things, so I might ask a question and before the week's over they might have solved it.


UPDATE #2 

I have my sisters kids came over so I wont have question sup until tomorrow.

It's alive

The game is now up and running for the first week's questions.

The link is provided at the top of the very first post of this thread.

You will need to create a log in for the game.  It can be your old one if you have played before, it can be a brand new one if you love to drive me crazy.  If you are new you can sign up using your log in name for this site or create something completely new.

Any questions feel free to ask Peach at any time her cell number is 1-800-HOT-4YOU!

I am now moving out of country, and changing my IP address.

Note:

Tomorrow I will be adding the Bonus Round for the upcoming weeks.  Normal each week will be worth 200 points (or close to it), the Bonus Round will be worth 400 points, it will be open tomorrow and close very late Tuesday. 

Basically it's going to be all of us judging legs 2-10, off of what little we get from one episode! 

I will also start including a little more of my smart ass nature in the questions.

No matter what I say I don't hate Canada

I might pick on Ron and Bill and tell them yes they can get my tray in the upright position, but I am don't have any issues with gay men or women, well besides my boyfriend of twenty years.

I will pick on survivor, on teams making bone headed choices, on their stupid facial hair, ect.

It's usually in love.
