Well, the first question most of you will have is: What is Banana: Reloaded?

Banana: Reloaded is a competition with 2 teams of 10 which will test general knowledge and your strategy skills, run by myself. It will be extremely fun, so if you read about it and think you're up for it, simply sign up! You will only need to participate for roughly 10 minutes each week, and you can participate at any time of the week.
Sign ups are now open, and will close on the 19th of June. The first week of competition will begin on the 20th June.

For more information, and to sign up check out the Banana: Reloaded webpage: http://dynamic.gamespy.com/~psypoke/amphy/banana

Amphy

P.S. Trainer Card Ribbons will be involved :)

I read the rules and regulations, but I still don't quite comprehend the
nature of this competition.

So...according to my knowledge, this is how it works:

Only 20 players can join, of which Amphy divides them into 2 teams with
10 players each. Each week (Starting June 20th), every player on each
team will be given 20 questions to answer in 10 minutes (of which the
amount of time decreases over the length of the competition).

Am I right?

And also...

What is the purpose of this competition? (Prizes?)
When (time and day) of the week are we asked the 20 questions?

Is this like Survivor, where the losing team can vote off one of their most
intellectual players? (I always found that show unfair.)

What does "General Knowledge" and "Strategy Skills" refer to?

EDIT: After reviewing the rules page, I guess there is a time limit this time around... I don't remember that from last time..

Trainer Card ribbons and bragging rights.

People are voted off, yes. There's also immunity, IIRC.

I have a question; after there's like, 10 out of the 20 left, are the teams going to merge, or is it last team standing?

I won't be signing up, I don't know much on General things, and nothing on Music and Movies.

Ok to give you an idea of what it's like, here are some sample questions:

What's the most commonly used letter of the alphabet?
How do you say "not organized" in one word?
End this common phrase: "See you later,..."
What sequence of letters has the most varied pronunciations?
What book has been translated into the most languages?
What's another word that sounds the same as "road", "rode" and "rhode"?
How can you write the phrase "grade A" so that it has a different meaning but sounds the same?
End this common phrase: "Happy New..."
How do you spell "14th"?
How many prongs are there on a dinner fork?
Who starts first in chess?

These are pretty easy, feel free to post an answer to one of them if you know :P

In regards to merging....Banana:Reloaded will of course have twists, of which I can't give away cos that would spoil the fun :P

Also a bit of clarification of the rules:
It is a weekly thing. Each week you'll have to answer 20 questions in one go on MSN, AIM, Chats (and I might get YIM for this too). There will be a 20 min time limit to begin with which is PLENTY of time considering the difficulty of questions in round 1. If you don't answer your questions, you won't be removed by me. Your score will be 0, and your team can boot you off if they want by voting for you, if they don't, you live another week. I forget who asked me, but if you're going away for a particular week, I'm happy for you to give me warning and let you sit the questions early, so if you go through you have a score for the week you are away.
If you're going to be unavailable for like half the competition, there isn't much point in joining.

All competitiors will get Ribbons, and the top 3 or so will get special ribbons. Not sure about prizes yet, we'll see. It also looks like NO Elites will be taking part, so that makes it a little fairer for everyone :)

I'll have a list of everyone who has signed up shortly.
