In a moment, the game that intrigued a nation. In a moment, the game of strategy, knowledge & fun. In a moment...

TIC TAC DOUGH


Overview
Tic Tac Dough is a gameshow where two contestants compete in a game of Tic Tac Toe. In order to claim squares, they must answer trivia questions. Money is added to the pot for each square claimed, and the winner takes home the pot and plays a bonus press-your-luck game.

Gameplay
  • The two contestants are presented with a board of nine categories. The returning champion plays X and chooses a category first.
  • A trivia question is asked, and the player has 24 hours to answer it. Get it right, and they claim the square and add money to the pot. Get it wrong, and the category is changed.
  • Claiming an outside square adds $500 to the pot. The center square, being the most valuable, is worth $1000. However, all center square questions have two parts, and both parts must be answered correctly to claim the square.
  • Normal squares have a blue background. Some squares will have red backgrounds, meaning that they are special in some way. Their specialness will be explained at the start of the game.
  • A game continues until a player wins by claiming three squares in a row. If a game results in a tie (all squares claimed without a win, or if it is impossible to achieve a win for either player), a new board is created and the pot carries over.

Bonus Game: Beat the Dragon
  • The winner of a game wins the pot and goes on to play the bonus game. They will be given a board with nine numbered squares.
  • Eight numbered squares will have monetary values hidden, while one will have the Dragon.
  • Players open one square at a time, adding that value to the bonus game's pot. If they reach $1000 or more, they win the bonus game and an additional prize package.
  • If, at any time, a player finds the Dragon, the Dragon burns all the bonus cash and the game ends.
  • Players may choose to walk away at any time without the prize package but with all the cash they have earned.
  • If a player visits five consecutive bonus games, their prize package during the fifth will include a brand new car.

Forum Rules
  • This is a trivia game, and as such, outside resources are prohibited. Where's the fun in that anyway? This is all fake money. Reconsider your choices.
  • There will be an ongoing queue, which may be joined any time. After a game concludes, the next player in line will become the challenger against the last game's champion.
  • If a player wins seven consecutive games, they may be asked to retire.
  • My questions are written from an American's perspective. As such, non-American players may struggle with questions on American sports, history, geography, etc. However, you may wildly outpace American contestants in questions about your native areas! I will try to minimize the number of America-centric questions per game, but the point is: caveat emptor.

From a snowy Internet Television City in northeast Ohio, it's everybody's game of strategy, knowledge & fun. It's Tic Tac Dough! And now, here's your host, the sinking realization that you're not getting any work done today, Xalxe!

Ah, thank you, thank you so much! He's wonderful, isn't he? Marvelous, just marvelous. You know, we auditioned dozens of announcers for this gig, and he was the only one we could get for free! Sensational. Fantastic.

Welcome, one and all, to our very first episode of Tic Tac Dough! Thank you so much for coming out, we've got a great show for you today, yes, yes we do. And two fantastic contestants, let's meet them, shall we?

They're an international person of mystery from a secret location, it's hearthstone1235!

And, our challenger, a woman of many words and fewer filters, it's xofelf!

Lovely, fantastic, they were, of course, chosen by random draw from our studio audience, and not here as part of a community outreach program, no sir. Anyway, let's take a look at today's board!

Image


Look at that board. Look at it. It's gorgeous. Spent my whole month's allowance on it. So, here's how our game works, if you're new around here, which all of us are.

hearthstone, can I call you hearthstone? I'm gonna. You're gonna pick a category, and I'm gonna ask you a question. Get it right, you get the square. Get it wrong, the square changes. The outside squares all are worth $500 each, which gets added to that pot up at the top of the screen for the winner. The center square, that beauty, she's worth $1000, but all center squares are two-part questions, so they're a bit trickier!

Now, most of our categories are the standard blue, but we've got two red categories up there for ya, lemme explain them real quick.

Our Secret Category in the lower right, that's a question about anything. Movies? Maybe! History? Perhaps! My life? Almost definitely not! Whenever that square's claimed, the amount in the pot doubles. So maybe don't pick it first? Or do, I'm not the boss of you.

Up at the top you'll also see that Company Logos is red. Now this game, that's a Trivia Dare. That sucker's got a multiple choice question under it. Whenever it's chosen, I'll read the question, and the player who picked it gets to decide if they want to answer it, or Dare their opponent to answer it. If someone gets Dared and they get it right, they get the square, but if they don't, their opponent does! Ha! We love a gamble!

All the other categories, they're exactly what it says on the tin. So, whaddya say, hearthstone? What's our first square?

Oh, alright, a gamblin' man! So, here's the question, you can either choose to answer it or force xofelf to give it a shot.

Company Logos
Which of the following is part of the logo of Australian clothing company Billabong?

A) Waves
B) Sun
C) Emu
D) Leaves

So, play, or Dare xofelf?

You absolutely should! I love you!

xofelf says it's waves...

And she's correct! Control of the square and the board is yours. We've also put $500 in the pot for the correct answer. What's next?

Unsurprisingly, you've chosen the category for nerds! No passing this one off, you've got to get it right or you get nothing.

Book Series
What series of novels, originally by Robert Ludlum and later continued by Eric Von Lustbader, includes books with the words Legacy, Betrayal, and Deception in their titles?

Remember that one time last weekend I was supposed to get to play Betrayal Legacy and then I missed out? Sad times!

Look, books are my shit and you know this. Don't even @ me.

He's the guy who writes the Jason Bourne books. I uh don't know if that counts as the series name, but they're those guys.

xofelf, I am afraid...

that is correct! The Bourne series was three books by Ludlum and then, like, twelve by Lustbader, which I have to assume are just, like, hardcore fanfiction or something.

hearthstone, the board is yours. I don't want to tell you how to live your life, but xof's got two in a row and if she gets the third, she wins. So...I mean...
