WELCOME TO Musical Madness
Consider yourself a music buff?
Is music your forte?
Is your i-pod your best friend?
Do you sing in the shower or in the car?
Do you have 78s or 45s you still play?
Or do you just want a bit of fun?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then this is the tournament for you.

GENERAL RULES AND INFORMATION

The Musical Madness Tournament will commence on Monday March 27th 2016 at approximately 8:00 am GMT. Sign up will close Monday 27th at 3 am GMT .

Competition will consist of six (6) different music subject brainoffs of 10 questions being sent everyday for five days - a total of 30 different music subjects. You will receive brainoffs from ‘Tournament’. Only the Tournament Conductor and her Notable Partner have knowledge of the subjects to be sent. Hopefully there will be something to suit everyone.

The competition will be an individual one. The individual with the highest cumulative total wins. A progressive Results Table will be posted in the ‘Other Tournaments’ forum. In the case of a tie The Tournament Conductor or her Notable Partner will send three (3) specific subject brainoffs to break the tie. Awards will be given at the end of the tournament for whatever takes the fancy of Tournament Conductor and her Notable Partner.
Just to make it interesting!
We will be running a rally competition alongside the Music tournament. If you sign up for the Music Tournament you will be automatically entered in the rally comp, although if you don't play it won't affect your Music Tournament scores as these will be totally separate.
You will get one music subject rally each day for the five days. These will be in the subjects:
Sounds of the 1960s
Sounds of the 1970s
Sounds of the 1980s
Sounds of the 1990s
Sounds of the 2000s

The winner will be the person with the highest total for the 5 rallies. Scores will not be capped.

In case the Factacular site hiccups, we will spring into action and resolve issues as soon as the site is up and running and continue with the competition. We do respectfully ask that everyone play their challenges as soon as possible after receiving them --- you will be less likely be affected if the site goes down. We will only replay challenges if the site is down for more than 12 hours. We will not replay for anyone letting the challenge time out or for minor site glitches. If you fall through a challenge with no score recorded, not even a 0, let us know before the challenge finishes and we may be able to fix this.
The Tournament Conductor and her Notable Partner volunteer their own time, so have some patience with the resolution of any problems that you may encounter and expect that there may be delays in the immediate posting of results. Please send a private message to JMK or Javalyne if you encounter problems or discrepancies. Decisions made by Tournament Conductor and her Notable Partner are final and no correspondence will be entered into.
So…
Invite other members to come and play! Let’s see a spirit of fun and lots of friendly comments in the brainoffs. Remember - it’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game

You two look lonely there. I'm in.

I'm not usually a rules reader, but can you tell me what 'playing in groups in a similar manner to the Decathlon' means? I didn't know we did that in the Decathlon, where's my group? Does it make a difference? I'm not fond of music quizzes, childish competitiveness, I'm no good so I'm reluctant to take part, but can't resist.......now I have a group?

Hey, nobody else sign up, this way I'm guaranteed a bronze.

I have revised that, it was the way it used to go out when I could only send out challenges to 8 people at a time. Thanks for spotting it.
