  1. A game of LDS Trivia and Puzzles starts tonight at 5:30 PM Pacific, 8:30 PM Eastern or when two or more people show up. It takes place on DALnet in channel #lds_trivia. If there any questions about how to get there, please ask here. Puzzles are a secondary part of the game. It offers bonus points to players. The first player that gets the correct answer(s) in the first part will get control and an opportunity to guess a letter. If the letter is in the puzzle, it will be shown, points awarded, and then players will have an opportunity to guess it until the next question is asked. If the letter isn't in the puzzle, the game continues with no opportunity to guess the puzzle. It's VERY important to note that guessing a vowel while consanants are still in the puzzle will cost a total of 750 points, 250 from the player's score and another 500 from the value of the puzzle. The script tracks what letters have been guessed, so a message displays if a letter already guessed is guessed again. Each round consists of one puzzle with an allocated 10 minutes to solve it. If it's not solved when that 10 minutes are up, a speed round occurs until it is solved. A speed round starts with the player in control, and the script will just move down the nickname list and give everyone a shot at guessing a letter. It will keep going until someone solves the puzzle or the last letter is revealed. Whoever solves the puzzle first will get the value of the puzzle and control. If the puzzle entered matches exactly, including punctuation, bonus points are awarded. If the puzzle entered is spelled correctly, less bonus points are awarded. Additional points are awarded for any time left on the puzzle clock.
  2. A game of LDS Trivia and Puzzles will start at 5:30 PM Pacific if two or more people show up. The game takes place over DALnet in channel #lds_trivia. Any questions with how to get to the game, please ask here. Last week, someone entered the channel to play. The person was about an hour or two late, but one showed up. That's a start. Even though it was only one person, I just did other things and didn't notice the player coming in, so I didn't say anything. Well, the player found the right place. I hope more than two will show this time. This time, I'll talk about the hangman-style puzzles. Each round consists of a puzzle to be solved. The category is shown only once at first reveal, BUT it can be requested by typing !cat in the channel. The first player to post the required number of correct answers to a question in the first part will get an opportunity to guess a letter in the puzzle. If the puzzle has the letter, it's revealed in the puzzle, and then that player will pick the category and level for the next question. I must caution that vowels guessed will cost the player 250 points AND deduct 500 more from the puzzle's point value. Players can then submit guesses to the puzzle until the next question is asked. Whoever gets the puzzle right will get points. Bonus points are awarded if the puzzle is spelled correctly or matches exactly, including any punctuation marks. The next round will begin with the selection of a new puzzle. If the puzzle takes too long to solve, a speed round will occur to solve the puzzle quickly. Finally, here's a sample question, picked completely at random: New Testament: Which of the four gospels has the story of John the Baptist's announcement and birth? (FYI: This is a level three question, which is implied multiple choice but not given.) The answer will be given at the beginning of the game, and players that arrive when the game starts will get an opportunity to answer and get points if correct. This is in addition to the on-time bonus of 1,000 points.
  3. A game of LDS Trivia and Puzzles starts tonight at 5:30 PM Pacific or when two or more people show up. The game takes place on DALnet in channel #lds_trivia. Please ask questions if there is any problems trying to connect or even how to connect. Each question has a total of 60 to 90 seconds to answer, depending on number of required answers. A question is split into two parts. The first part is 25 to 35 seconds, and players get one line to submit as many answers as required. Whoever gets the correct answer(s) gets points, and the first player to post all correct answers gets control and an opportunity to guess a letter in the puzzle. If no one gets the question right, the point value cuts in half, and a second 35 to 55 seconds is given for players to post as many lines as possible until someone gets all answers right or until the buzzer sounds, whichever comes first. Control and letter guess opportunity is not given if anyone gets it right.
  4. I'm going to try something different. I'm going to try for a game tonight at 5 to 7 PM Pacific, 8 to 10 PM Eastern if two or more people show up. The game takes place on DALnet in channel #lds_trivia. This time, I'm going to go over a part of how the game is played. The main part of the game is, of course, answering trivia questions. Solving puzzles is a chance for players to earn extra points, and I think it makes it more fun. One aspect of the game is that players will choose the category and level of the questions. Why? Gives them . . . control, I guess. I'm not sure why, but that's the way it's been done, even when I had the game back in the 1990's. The game has six categories: Bible, Book of Mormon, Church History, New Testament, Old Testament, Wild, and random (?). The Bible category has New Testament and Old Testament questions. Some questions may not fit to either testaments but both. Wild questions are questions that deal with the church but do not fit the other categories. The random category is a pick from the other categories. Random is not counted as a category. The questions have eight levels. Well, nine if you count random. The levels are a type of question asked, not its point value. Levels one through four require one correct answer; levels five and six require two; and levels seven and eight require three. Some questions are multiple choice (one, two, five, and seven), while others are not (three, four, six, and eight). Now, I'm going to ask a level eight question as an example: "Book of Mormon: Which three of five books has one chapter?" This one is probably an easy one, but I won't post the answer here. Whoever comes to play the game will not only get the answer but can actually submit an answer before the game starts. Whoever is right gets the question's point value. I'm also not going to mark it as used. I hope to see you there. Since school starts Thursday, I will only be able to offer games on Sundays.
  5. If two people or more show up by around 5:30 PM Pacific, 8:30 PM Eastern Sunday evening, a game will take place. The game takes place on DALnet in channel #lds_trivia. If there are any questions or problems, please ask here.
  6. (I thought I would try here, because the game is about the gospel.) Since I'm off tomorrow, which is Tuesday, I'll host a LDS Trivia and Puzzles game tomorrow if two people show up after 5 PM Pacific. It takes place through IRC on DALnet. Any questions, please see the original post.
  7. Just a reminder that LDS Trivia and Puzzles starts tonight at 5:30 PM Pacific, 8:30 PM Eastern on DALnet in channel #lds_trivia. For more information, there's a post I made on Thursday in this category. If there are any questions about connecting to the game, please ask questions in that post.
  8. Hello all! I'm new here, so I really don't want this to sound spammy, but I just launched a Book of Mormon Trivia game for the iPhone and I'm hoping to get feedback about it. It looked to me that the General forum would be best place to do this, so here I am :) It's my first iPhone app and I'm very excited about it, there's over 200 Book of Mormon questions of varying difficulty (some of them are really hard!) with more on the way, and it lets you see what questions you got wrong and what the right answers are. I'd love to hear from everyone about what features you'd like to see, or anything you'd like changed about the app. If you've got iTunes you can find the app here: iTunes Store Thanks! -- Orien -- Sticky Buzz Software
