Trivia Tournament III - 2.0.11
« on: Jan 02, 2011, 10:03 pm »
Since it is a whole new year, and the other thread was getting really long, here is a brand new 2011 trivia thread!!

If you're new to SMNet, here's the instructions for playing trivia:

To play, click here http://www.funtrivia.com/private/main.cfm?tid=76555.

Please register over there with the same username there as you use here so you can be tracked in the standings.

To quote PSMKay -
"To register, you will need the tournament password.   Use the same password as you use for the SMNetwork resume browser.  The one that starts with the letter f.  The password is visible on the main page of smnetwork in the descriptive text of a forum that is visible only to registered, logged in members.  Please do not PM the password or post the password publicly.  The hints that have been given so far in this post should be more than sufficient for figuring it out.  The trivia tournament is TOUGH and figuring out the password is meant as a warm-up for you."

There's a different set of questions every day of the week.  Topics are chosen by a player in the top ten who hasn't picked topics in the past year.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________
Congrats to the 23 members who played during December!!  Here is the top 10.

1. rvhead (248 points, 3 wins)
2. loebtmc (241 points, 4 wins)
3. ruthny (234 points, 5 wins)
4. Lizzie (220 points, 5 wins)
5. scott (207 points, 2 wins)
6. MarcieA (196 points, 3 wins)

8. ScooterSM (163 points, 3 wins)
9. yomanda (145 points, 0 wins)
10. babens (143 points, 2 wins

Enjoy!!

**Moderators, please feel free to add this to the old thread if that is a better choice. Tx!**

this has been, by far, and without a doubt, the worst two days of trivia I have strung together since starting trivia in November.....not only did I come in dead last with 3 correct answers on Religion, I only got 4 on People. I hang my head in shame.

And I have discovered that Religion is really Christianity with the rare, occasional token reference to other belief systems. Kinda annoying....

Today's quiz made me smile, because Chuck Negron from the group who sang the song in the first question (Joy to the World) was just at the theater where I heard him singing it 5 days ago.
