Welcome everyone, to Final Fantasy VIII Twenty One!
Okay, this is the newest game show concept for the boards.
Here's how it works:
- Once I have two players, a game can begin. If you'd like to play sometime, please sign up at any time and I'll add you to the queue. Pretty much anyone can sign up and since there's basically no on-show qualification process on the version of the program I watched (which was Maury Povich's Twenty One revival), there's no qualification process here really either. However, there are a few exceptions. Please don't sign up if you haven't been a member of the Shrine for at least three months. Also, don't bother signing up if your username is sain, Rude666, ruin_sword, kilgoretrout, Manga Legend, Shadow Mage, etc.
- Once the game starts, it is conducted by Private Messaging. I will send each player their questions. The point values range from 1-11. A point value of 1 is absurdly easy and only has three answer choices. A point value of 11 is rather hard and has four possible answers, two of which are correct. That's the basic idea. Of course, the objective is to earn as high a score as possible and theoretically get to 21 points before your opponent does. You'll be given a category first and then you choose your point value you want to play for based on your perceived knowledge of that category. You'll want to be careful because if you get it wrong, you get a strike. Three strikes, and you are out.
- Both players get a Second Chance, somebody they can call on for help. They may use the second chance once per game. If the Second Chance's answer is correct, they continue as normal. But if it's wrong and they choose to go with it, they receive two strikes.
- Once both players have answered two questions, both will be given an opportunity to stop the game. That will be posted here for everyone to see. If neither has stopped the game within twelve hours, then play continues.
- Whoever wins the game is the champion. He or she then plays "Perfect Twenty One" for the chance to go for some additional gil. More about that later.
- The champion can continue indefinitely, playing for increasing gil amounts, assuming he or she keeps winning. The first game is for 25000 gil and the values escalate all the way up to one million gil. If anyone wins that, then he or she keeps going for new games at that dollar value. There is no risk, and except in "Perfect Twenty One," you can never lose once you have won.
- Once a game has ended, I will post a full detail of the questions and answers here at the thread.
One-Six Point Questions - Questions of this point value are easier in general because the only have three answer choices to select from.
Seven-Nine Point Questions - Getting harder as besides the higher level of knowledge being tested, there are also four answer choices.
Ten Point Question - One of the answer choices is always "D.) None of the Above."
Eleven Point Question - Most difficult. There are five answer choices and two of them are correct.
Nobody walks away empty-handed --- everyone leaves with at least 1000 gil.
Three strikes and you're out. If your opponent gets three strikes, it may still be possible for you to strikeout within that round. If that happens, then both players lose and two new challengers are brought into the game.
One million gil
