LDS Trivia and Puzzles

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.
