This is Canreef Jeopardy! A game by which Canreef Forum Members battle it out in a game of wits and knowledge. Here are the details.

Jeopardy clues will be posted in the Game Thread in the form of an answer. For example, "This Pixar movie that came out in 2003 featured a regal tang and a clownfish looking for his lost son." Forum members will then post their answer to the clue :typing: in the Game Thread in the form of a question. For example, "What is Finding Nemo." The first member to post the correct answer (in the form of a question) will be awarded 200 points, unless there are two members who post the correct answer at the same time (as it appears in the post time stamp). In the event that there was more than one forum member who posted the correct answer at the same time, ONLY the first two forum members who posted the correct answer at the same time will each be awarded 100 points each. However, the split point rule does not apply to the Daily Double described below.

Each day one Daily Double clue will be posted that is worth 400 points. Only the FIRST forum member to respond correctly is award all 400 points.

The Game Keeper (Canreef Staff) will inform the thread who has the correct answer if it isn't already obvious. A running total of points will be kept and the forum member with the most points at the end of the game is declared The Winner. :first:

Jeopardy clues will be posted at random intervals to the Game Thread throughout the course of the weekend from Friday evening to Sunday night at 10pm Pacific Time (11pm Mountain time, 12pm Eastern Time). Jeopardy clues may come in quick succession, or there may be a (large) time delay between questions. The key here is ,"random". The Game Keeper may not be in the thread constantly but will periodically :ranger: (i.e. randomly) check in on the thread.

Any forum member or vendor is permitted to play.

Here are the rules:

1. After a Jeopardy! clue is posted in the Game Thread, forum members can post their answer (in the form of a question).
2a. The first forum member to post the correct answer in the form of a question is awarded 200 points. However,
2b. In the event that more than one member posts the correct answer at the same time (as it appears in the post time stamp), the first two members who correctly answer at the same time will each be awarded 100 points.
2c. This split point rule DOES NOT apply to the "Daily Double" clue that is awarded 400 points to only the FIRST person to answer correctly.

Example 1:
* Member_A answers correctly at 11:00pm
* Member_B answers correctly at 11:01pm

In Example 1 above only Member_A is awarded 200 points.

example 2:
* Member_A answers correctly at 12:00pm
* Member_B answers incorrectly at 12:00pm
* Member_C answers correctly at 12:00pm
* Member_D answers correctly at 12:00pm
* Member_E answers correctly at 12:01pm
etc

In example 2 above, Member_A and Member_C are each awarded 100 points.

Example 3:
* Member_A answers incorrectly at 10:00am
* Member_B answers incorrectly at 10:01am
* Member_C answers correctly at 10:30am

In Example 3 above, Member_C is awarded 200 points.

Example 4: DAILY DOUBLE CLUE..
* Member_A answers incorrectly at 9:00am
* Member_B answers incorrectly at 9:00am
* Member_A answers again incorrectly at 9:01am
* Member_C answers correctly at 9:01am
* Member_D answers correctly at 9:01am
* Member_E answers correctly at 9:01am

In Example 4 above only Member_C is award the 400 Daily Double Points.

3. Members are permitted to submit as many answers as they wish but only one answer per post.

4. Spelling mistakes in answers are permitted so long as the answer is correct and legible by the Game Keeper.

5. The Game Keeper (Canreef Staff) will identify who has the correct answer (if it isn't obvious).

6. The game will run the duration of the weekend from Friday evening to Sunday night at 11PM MST.

7. The winner is declared at the end of the game by whomever has accumulated the most points.

8. Each day there will be one Jeopardy clue that is known as the "Daily Double" and is worth 400 points and is ONLY awarded to the FIRST person who answers correctly regardless of whoever else answers correctly at the same time.

9. In the event that there is a tie at the closing of the game (i.e., more than one user with the same accumulated number of winning points), then a round of Final Jeopardy will be played. In the Final Jeopardy round, ALL (and ONLY) the tied contestants will be sent a Final Jeopardy clue via Private Message and the first member to respond in the Game Thread (NOT in a Private Message back to the Game Keeper) with the correct answer (in the form of a question) will be declared the winner. If a Final Jeopardy contestant has a full inbox then that contestant will simply not receive the Final Jeopardy question, so make sure your inbox is not full!

10. In the event of a disputed answer, the Game Keeper (Canreef Staff) is always right. Even if they are wrong (just jokes; we'll arm wrestle).
