Post subject:  Holiday Season Trivia 2012 - UNWRAPPED

WRAP UP (well maybe unwrapped is more appropriate since we're after Christmas :p)

The turnout was pretty good toward the end. I'm pretty happy about how things went.

Here's how the game played out:

Scores at the half:

1st: DNA :: 15 points
2nd: Ace :: 5 points
3rd: Dare234 :: 3 points
4th: Cherrygrove :: 2.5 points
5th: ChillBill :: 2 points

You could call the winner by half time but the run for 2nd place was pretty tight. I was surprised that everyone managed to get more than one point. The rest were pretty close together. I earned 0.5 points for each question nobody could answer.

Final Scores:

1st place: DNA :: 27 points (wins 500 Psybucks and +o in the next game I host)
2nd place: TonberryKing :: 12 points (passed on prizes)
3rd place: Ace :: 6 points (wins 250 Psybucks)
4th place: (tie) Dare234, Cherrygrove :: 4 points (Dare234 wins 100 Psybucks)
6th place: ChillBill :: 3 points
7th place: DragonPhoenix :: 1 point

DNA won again with 27 points (being frozen 5 times in total ;o). TonberryKing and DragonPhoenix joined in at the half. TK certainly gave DNA a run for his money, both earning 12 points. Ace managed to stay ahead of the rest to get third place, it still being rather close. Everybody earned a point in the second half. Good job everyone!

After Trivia there was bonus Minute Madness but I guess I made it too hard and everyone got 0 points :x. Way to "go out in a blaze of glory" DNA :p

Hey! It's getting to that time of year again and this year I would like to host a Christmas/New Year's Trivia! It will be much like other Psypoke Trivia where the questions are mostly Pokemon related. I think I will also include a category with miscellaneous Christmas questions. I am posting this a month ahead of time since I know everyone is very busy at that time of year so I hope I can get a decent attendance if more people see this or if we discuss times that work for you.

Last Trivia I hosted with wrap up



In the #PsypokeTrivia chat channel on KBFail's server ( Date and time is Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 3:00:00 PM EST. I anticipate that the game will take 1 hour. See below for other time zones.

I picked December 27th is because the 21st, 22nd and 23rd are the weekend, 24th and 25th are Christmas Eve and Day, 26th is Boxing Day, 28th, 29th and 30th are again the weekend, and 31st and 1st are New Year's Eve and Day, on which days I anticipate most of you will be occupied. As for the time, I expect that most of you will not have school on that day and by making it in the afternoon for Americans, other English speaking areas should be able to make it too. Also, this does not conflict with typical dinner times anywhere in the world (times for other places below).

For using the java applet to access the chats: go here, click on the Java Applet link, and type /join #psypoketrivia when you're connected.

How it works:

At the start +m will be set. I will state the category if a new one is starting.

Next before stating the question I will say "Ready?", then set -m and ask the question.

At this point everyone will be able to give the answer to the question. There will be no limit to how many times you can answer in. Please do not spam the channel and only submit answers to the question at this time so as to reduce lag.

When I see the first person to give the correct answer I will set +m, and then state the person who gave the answer as well as the correct answer. The person will earn a point. The goal is to earn as many points as you can. Top 3 will get a prize.


1. Do not use any colours or /me commands.
2. Do not argue if you thought that you answered before someone else. It will go by what appears on my screen only.
3. Do not PM any ops, especially me. If you have a complaint/question/whatever, wait until a break. (during the event)
4. Do not use any reference materials online OR offline (such as the site or a text file on your computer).
5. You must use your forum name to receive any prizes. Various exceptions are allowed, but ask first.
6. Do not change your nick during the event.


Winner: 500 Psybucks and +o in the next game I host
Second: 250 Psybucks
Third: 100 Psybucks

Reminder: DNA, you won the last Trivia so you get +o in this game if you attend.

Staff are eligible for the prizes.


Why should I go?
Because it's something really fun and worthwhile, and because I said so. :P

Are the questions Pokemon-related?
Yes, most of the questions will be Pokemon related.

What time is it in my time zone?

My time:
Toronto (Canada) Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 3:00:00 PM EST UTC-5 hours
Corresponding UTC (GMT) Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 20:00:00

Los Angeles (U.S.A.) Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 12:00:00
Denver (U.S.A.) Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 1:00:00 PM
Chicago (U.S.A.) Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 2:00:00 PM
New York (U.S.A.) Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 3:00:00 PM
Halifax (Canada) Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 4:00:00 PM
Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 6:00:00 PM

Dublin (Ireland) Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 8:00:00 PM
Warsaw (Poland) Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 9:00:00 PM
Athens (Greece) Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 10:00:00 PM

Jakarta (Indonesia) Friday, December 28, 2012 at 3:00:00 AM
Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) Friday, December 28, 2012 at 4:00:00 AM
Sydney (Australia) Friday, December 28, 2012 at 7:00:00 AM
Wellington (New Zealand) Friday, December 28, 2012 at 9:00:00 AM

I think that covers most Psypoke visitors.

Is there freezing?
I'll decide later.

Why can't I talk when I get in there?
This would be supposing that you're late and +m is set. This usually means that it is between questions. +m is a special mode to be set on chat channels that mutes people without special privileges (voice or op). These are only given to some staff and others who have won the status in previous games.

How will typos be dealt with?
If they are not too bad I will accept them. This will be subject to my discretion but I will try to be consistent.

What happens to rule-breakers?
Loss of all points in the game, loss of all Psybucks on the offender's forum account, and permanent bans from #psypoke, #PsypokeTrivia, the forums, the main site, and the internet forever. In other words, don't do it. :O

If you have any questions about joining or playing the game please post them here.

I'm iffy on this one. The time of day isn't a problem, but seeing as the fact that I'll have about five to seven new games for my PS3, I may get caught up in other things...
I love BO2!
...But I will join in if I can take myself out of the games for awhile.

I intend to take the title of last place but one question do you need to set anything up for the chat server?

Author:  Cherrygrove [ Sun Dec 09, 2012 5:01 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Holiday Season Trivia 2012

To use the java chat applet on the site you will need to have Java installed. Try using it to get onto #psypoke. If you have any problems getting connected you can tell me here. Alternatively you can download mIRC and connect to the server using that. If you choose to do that and need help getting into the channel, ask here.

Author:  ChillBill [ Mon Dec 10, 2012 11:34 am ]
Post subject:  Re: Holiday Season Trivia 2012

I'll consider joining. That is, if I download Java cos my PC has some trouble... And time isn't the best for me, but I'll try to be there.

You have a definite 'yes' from me! Since the City of Port Huron has yet to give me the $250 they promised, I don't think I'll be getting a PS3 to avoid losing Trivia in time.

I'll decide later.

Okay I've decided. There will be freezing. Here is how it will be implemented:

-only the player in the lead will be affected by freezing. This includes being tied for the lead.
-you will be frozen each time your score reaches a multiple of five, i.e. 5, 10, 15, 20, etc.
-while frozen, you will not be permitted to answer the question asked after you were frozen. You will only be frozen for one question.
-if you do attempt to answer a question while frozen, you will be penalized one point. Note that if you are penalized, the next point you earn will bring you back to a multiple of five and you will be frozen again. You do not need to keep track of your score, I will tell you when you are frozen.

Is that clear?

Author:  DNA [ Sun Dec 23, 2012 10:37 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Holiday Season Trivia 2012 - December 27 at 3:00 pm EST

Question, if someone is frozen, attempts to buzz in, and then immediately realizes his/her mistake and says "Wait, no, frozen, disregard" (or something like that), does s/he still get penalized anyway?

Either way, I understand, I agree, I will be ready.

Post subject:  Re: Holiday Season Trivia 2012 - December 27 at 3:00 pm EST

Just to repeat what I said in the chat, if you give an answer while frozen you can't take it back, you will lose the point.

I'll definitely join a future event. Just for the sake of it.

Post subject:  Re: Holiday Season Trivia 2012 - UNWRAPPED

Next time, whenever that may be (perhaps in February?), would you guys prefer a Trivia or a Jeopardy?

The difference is that Trivia requires knowledge and the ability to type quickly whereas Jeopardy requires knowledge and luck. Also in Jeopardy you lose points for incorrect answers. It doesn't matter to me because I have scripts ready for both from past games and it will take equal effort to come up with the questions.

Author:  ChillBill [ Fri Dec 28, 2012 11:55 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Holiday Season Trivia 2012 - UNWRAPPED

Whatever's fine by me. As long as we have some good company, I don't mind.
Personally, I say Jeopardy, but only because I haven't played it and wanna try it.
