Kdowns defeated Summer in the Fortress, and returns to the Purple Team with the Safety Token.

Grumpy was unable to complete the Fortress due to his V/LA. STD stays on the Blue Team and gives the Yellow Team's token to Randy.

{Episode 07 Challenge}

Image

Recliner


Today, we're not throwing in any twists. It's a good ole-fashioned trivia competition. One at a time, each team will send a player to face a specific trivia category, with 10 questions in each category. Each competitor will hold onto a rope while leaning backwards against a wall over the water. When a player gives an incorrect answer, the slack on their rope will be loosened, making the player lean back even further. If two incorrect answers are given, the rope is completely loosened, and the player is dropped into the water below.

The first player to fall in a category scores 0 points for their team, second wins 1 point, and the person who holds on the longest wins 2 points. If two or more players hold on for the same number of questions, the person with the fastest time will prevail.

Before we get into the questions, each team must designate one player to compete in each of the below categories.

  • Movies
  • Television
  • Sports
  • Gaming
  • History
  • Literature
  • Music
  • Geography
  • Science
  • Art
The categories must be distributed as evenly as possible between members. A player cannot be assigned to >1 more category than any of his or her teammates. For example, if a player is competing in exactly 3 categories, everyone else on the team must be assigned to at least 2 categories each.

You ARE ALLOWED to use outside resources on this challenge, meaning that it's okay to not know a few answers off the top of your head, but the more answers you know immediately, the better your time will be. Still, you are NOT ALLOWED to communicate with other players regarding the content of any of your questions.

You have 24 hours to deliberate and decide who will take on which categories. After that, everyone has another 24 hours to complete their quizzes. A Google form has been created for each category's quiz, and players will receive links to their quizzes once all roles have been assigned. Filling out the form given to you for a category will start your time for that category, and you will be provided with a link to a new form through which to take the quiz itself.

What's the format of the trivia? Open-ended I'd imagine? (As opposed to multiple choice or true/false or something)

[B03] If a team is reduced down to one member, and at least one of the opposing teams has at least four members left, all teams with four members or more will hold a vote for who to send to join the one-man team. Anyone holding a Safety Token can not be voted out of their team.

In the event of a tie for this challenge, we'll be going with most overall correct answers, followed by the team with the fastest cumulative time.
