Here are the rules:
One person will play at a time. When the person is playing, please do not give the answer away if you know it. That would ruin the game.
Standard rules apply. If you don’t know the rules, here they are:
I will ask the person who’s in the “hot seat” questions. Each question will have 4 choices for an answer, however only ONE of those choices will be the correct one. Each question will get harder and harder than the one before it. ALL QUESTIONS WILL BE ABOUT STRAIGHTDOPE and the topics, members, history, etc. The person advances up the chain of money to $1,000,000.
The chain looks like this:
100 <— starts here.
Now, you will have 3 lifelines to use to help you answer questions. Here is what they are and how they’ll be used online.
Ask the Audience: If the person chooses to use this lifeline, then he or she will be able to ask all the people who are following along to ring in with what they think the answer is. Please do not give the reason WHY you think it’s the right answer, just say the letter. And only answer if the person chooses this lifelife. This is the ONLY case in which people following along can reply with the answer.
Phone a Friend: The person in the hotseat will be able to ask ONE of the SD members to help him with the answer. Note, this does NOT include me. However, members following along can “volunteer” to be the person “called” (Ex: “Hey, pick me, I know it”)
50/50: This lifeline allows two of the wrong answers to be taken away and the person left with a wrong and the correct answer.
Once a player says they are going to use a lifeline, they CANNOT take it back.
Finally, there is a time limit. If you’re the one playing, then please try to not take a very long time. If you haven’t replied with an answer in, say, 5 minutes, that’s too long. I understand things happen offline and people have lives, but if you know you’re going to be engaged in something soon, then geez…don’t bother playing! Heh.
Anyway, let’s get it started.
Here’s the first fastest finger question. Whoever gets it first, gets to play first.
Put these movies in order of when they were made, starting with the earliest.
