WELCOME TO THE JAVA JIVE - RETURN OF THE PERCULATOR 

I believe humans get a lot done, not because we’re smart, but because we have thumbs so we can make coffee. – Flash Rosenberg

GENERAL RULES AND INFORMATION: (Please read) The Tournament consists of teams consisting of 2 members. The Java Jive will commence on October 29, 2018. Signup will close on Sunday, October 28th at 8PM GMT. Competition will consist of six (6) specific subject Brainoffs of 10 questions beings sent everyday for five days. Only the Tournament Mistress (The Queen of Coffeedom) and her Partner in Crime have knowledge of the subjects to be sent. Be warned, these subjects are not for the faint-hearted. Players must be available to play every day for the whole week. Please do not let your teammate down by signing up and then not playing once competition commences.

Teams will be randomly formed. All one has to do to sign up is post the message “I’m in” and you will be matched with another member to form a team. All team names need to based on Coffee or Tea.(Reference Factopedia for help) but please try to keep it short as names are combined to form a team name. Please post your  "Coffee or Tea Name" beside your “I’m in’ message. Team matchups will be posted in the forum.

The Tournament Mistress will match team members based on IDs so that those who have been members the longest will be matched with those who have been here the shortest length of time. Teams will be posted on October 28th (or sooner).  You will receive brainoffs from ‘Java Jive’.  A progressive Results Table will be posted in a public forum available to all team members. In the case of a tie (the same odds as seeing the Big Yin in a tutu leading a Rick Roll with nerdy Goths), The Tournament Mistress or Official Partner in Crime will send three (3) specific subject brainoffs to break the tie. The individual scores for each team member will be added together to form a cumulative team total. The team with the highest cumulative total wins. 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.

AND FINALLY, The Tournament Mistress and her Partners in Crime 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 Java or JMK if you encounter problems or discrepancies. Decisions made by The Tournament Mistress and her Partners in Crime are final and no correspondence will be entered into. Invite other members to come and play! Everyone gets an award and most of all --- everyone has fun!

Comments are always welcome and I'm off to finish the Death Star Perculator!!!

Helen, if that were the case my coffee would be slow and dirty.

Challenges will be sent out later today.

Have fun with the subjects and don't be afraid to comment after you have completed the brainoff.  I know some of the subjects will have you shaking your head or hand or cursing at the screen, but that just makes me smile and giggle.

Off we go to heat up the perculator!
