So, as of tonight, I've actually written up all the trivia questions for the Fan/Pro Trivia Challenge at this year's Emerald City Comic-Con!
That doesn't mean I've finished all the work on them, though... some of the categories are visual categories, which means I'll need to come up with pictures for them... but I know what I need, for the most part anyway.
Each round will have five categories, with questions worth from one to five points each (relating to how hard the question is). The fan team will get to choose the category and point value, and get the first shot at answering. If they can't answer, the pro team gets to answer, and if they're right, they get the points (and get to choose the next category and point value). But the fans always get first shot at answering!
There may be two rounds per game, depending on how many people sign up for the contest. Fan teams will be comprised of four members, against the Terrible Trio of Comic Book Trivia: Mark Waid, Kurt Busiek and Tom Peyer!
Kurt and Tom were on the first contest, two years ago... Waid was supposed to be in it, but he had to cancel on the convention, and Peyer filled in admirably. The third person the first time was Roy Thomas, who isn't at ECCC this year (too bad, too, I really wanted to talk to him more than I got a chance to).
Right now, it looks like the trivia challenge will be early the first day of the convention... check out the official website at EmeraldCityComicCon.com for updated information as we get closer to the show!
