N.B. This month's single subject tournament is early as I can't run it in the usual week.

WELCOME TO Minties’ Movie Moments
Consider yourself a Movie maestro?
Are movies your forte?
Is your DVD player your best friend?
Can you name who won the best picture Oscars for the last 10 years?
Do you sometimes want to ride off into the sunset?
Do you act out the scenes from movies when you hear the theme tunes?
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.
The Minties’ Movie Moments Tournament will commence on Monday April 10th at approximately 8.15 am GMT.
The rules are listed below. To take part, simply post “I’m in” in this thread. Sign-up closes 7am April 10th GMT.

GENERAL RULES AND INFORMATION

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

The competition will be an individual one but you will be playing in groups in a similar manner to the Decathlon. The individual with the highest cumulative total wins. A progressive Results Table will be posted in a public forum. In the case of a tie The Tournament Director or her 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 Director and her Partner.
Just to make it interesting!
We will be running a rally competition alongside the Movies tournament. If you sign up for the MoviesTournament you will be automatically entered in the rally comp, although if you don't play it won't affect your Movies Tournament scores as these will be totally separate.
You will get one movies subject rally each day for the five days. These will be in the subjects:
Popular Movies 1950 - 1979
Academy Award for Best Picture
Popular Movies - 1980 - Present
Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role
Popular Movies 1910 -1949
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. f you fall through a tournament without being able to play PM JMK immediately. If you leave it too long I won't be able to do anything about it.

We will only replay challenges if the site is down for more than 12 hours on the last day of a challenge. We will not replay for anyone letting the challenge time out or for minor site glitches.
The Tournament Director or her 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 as these are updated manually. Please send a private message to JMK or Javalyne if you encounter problems or discrepancies. Decisions made by Tournament Director or her 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.

Hello Norseman, nice to see you here. I've looked at your profile and see you've been playing for years, whereas it only took me a few months to feel bold enough to enter a tournament, it is fun.

Let's encourage the others.

Good luck to you.

Encourage the others? Doesn't that mean we have to kill an admiral?

Welcome Norseman81.

I can assure everyone no Admirals will be harmed in the making of this tournament, we'll just have to find some other way to encourage the others.

Some French naval commander; kill an admiral 'pour encourager les autres'. I reckon it's easier to kill an admiral than to beat our particular Pugwash.

Do you ever get sick of being "Slartybartfast"?

I would. As amazingly informed he is, he is also tired of it all.

I never want to be in that position.

That was Douglas Adams' point.

Looks like I should keep my water-wings handy in case the pirate makes me walk the plank.

But I'll probably just fall overboard.

Not likely from the crows nest, though. :(
