Contestants:
xofelf
doctorwho


Board:
Image

Gameplay:

The gameboard is a hex containing 25 hexes with all the letters of the alphabet (X and Y are together), randomly distributed. Whomever has control of the board will pick a hex (or a random hex in the middle of the board will be selected at first).

When a hex is selected, a question that has an answer that starts with that letter will be asked in thread. Both players will be required to submit an answer to me via PM.

If both players answer correctly or incorrectly, nothing happens, and the person who had control keeps control. When one person answers correctly and the other does not, that player will get the hex for their color, and will gain control of the board.

The first player to connect their color from one side of the hex to the other will win. With this board I believe it is only possible by connecting 5 or more hexes.

I don't really care about time but let's (me especially included) try to make sure it doesn't drag on. I will try to keep the board updated in pictorial form but don't rely on that.

Speaking of right, both contestants have provided at least the Benjamin part of H. Jon Benjamin.

For the sake of expedience, I will ask a list of questions, and I will go down the list. The first person to miss a question the other gets (in the order that they are presented to you) will give the other person control. I probably won't do this when one of you has control of the board but for now I don't want to spend a month determining who's going to take the first hex. Lastly, I'm moving around the middle a bit, depending on the question answered, that will be the hex filled in.

Q
Question 3: The first U.S. president that had a father be a previous president has what middle name starting with Q?

B
Question 4: What is a common writing system for the blind, which is named after its creator?

M
Question 5: Skopje is the capital of which European nation?

V
Question 6: Who served as Dante's guide through Hell in Dante's Inferno?

A
Question 7: Which band received 3 Grammy nominations for their 2012 southern rock album "Boys and Girls"?
