The Team Pursuit is a two person team tournament.  The goal is to achieve the most pieces of pie as a team (highest scores) in all of the categories in Factacular.  Tournament runs from April 24th to April 28th.

RULES:

Two (2) person team.

Find your own partner and enter by posting your chosen team name and team members. 

Only in extreme cases will we match partners.

If your partner cannot play, you can choose another partner.  Their scores will be added to the accumulated scores previously earned.

There will be six 10 question, subject-based random challenges per day. These will consist of three (3) challenges from two categories per day as follows:

Day One: 3 History and Mythology, 3 Music

Day Two: 3 Language, 3 Science and Nature

Day Three: 3 Arts and Literature, 3 Miscellaneous

Day Four: 3 Movies, 3 Geography

Day Five: 3 Entertainment, 3 Sports and Leisure

A progressive Results Table will be posted in a public forum and available to all team members.  Challenges will be sent by Java Jive.

SCORING

The team with the highest cumulative total for each subject gets a piece of pie. The team with the highest cumulative total in all subjects gets a bonus 3 pieces of pie, 2nd highest gets 2 bonus pieces of pie and 3rd gets 1 bonus piece of pie. At the end the team with the most pieces of pie wins. In the case of a tie, the tied teams will receive three brainoffs consisting of three x 20 question randoms.

FURTHER AND A DISCLAIMER:

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. Challenges need to be played within 48 hours of them being sent. 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 on the last day of a challenge. We will not replay for anyone letting the challenge time out or for minor site glitches. If you drop through a brainoff without being able to play contact JMK asap via PM as the challenge may be able to be reset. Do not refresh the page whist playing as this will result in a 0 score and cannot be reset.

The Tournament Organiser 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 Java if you encounter problems or discrepancies.  Decisions made by Tournament Organiser or her Partner are final and no correspondence will be entered into.

Ruby and chooky are in with a cool name that chooky has forgotten for the moment. Can I re-post with the name before sign up closes?

 

Have the Visitors been?

Yes chooky.....heaps of time yet. Just make sure the team name is not elaborate.

Too many characters in a team name can make legends in pie charts hard due to positioning and all of that. So, if ya can, make it short.

But I trust you two will make it good.

By the way guys, understand that the above listing is the ONLY way to set up everything so the system works.

So if things like "Lindy" are actually "lindy", yes, it makes a difference.

I don't like to second-guess everybody but it is my JOB to do so.

But there are over 1,000 memberships in this outfit so PAY ATTENTION.

CHOOKY!! I love it, if that's too complex, how about shortening it to Rubicks? At least we'll remember the spirit of the thing. Perhaps we should be conversing privately....

Chook? That was funny as all hell!

Erm, yes, "We Aint No Spring Chickens But We Aint No Rubes Either" is a tad difficult to position as a legend in a pie chart. ESPECIALLY in MS Access which, despite it's claim to fame of being user friendly, gets more difficult to work with everytime it changes versions. But that's my problem.

As for you? You two go work out your team name in private. Just make sure we have something by this Sunday.

Cool?

Yes - according to the theme song "one's a genius, the other's insane"  Now that doesn't mean the insane one is not a genius, or the genius one is not insane.  It just means you decide ;)

What are we going to do tonight Brain? Same thing we do every night Pinky, try to take over the world!

Are you pondering what I'm pondering Pinky? I think so Brain - but how do we get three flamingos into one pair of capri pants?

Java and I like to think that, given the personality traits of both characters, we are in fact, interchangeable. :-)

tallyho - You'll have to get yourself a partner by Sunday as at the close of entry. So, plenty of time yet, but don't leave it too late.

Tazing & vepa1943 - As per the entry specifications, you have to declare a team name which you have not done yet. Just make sure it is as brief as possible because trying to position overly long team names in pie chart legends gives me heartburn and a generally cranky outlook. Refer above posts and subsequent comments. If you don't declare one by close of entry (late Sunday), one will be declared for you.

Java and I have already considered your team name. Try to better our version.
