Gentlemen of the forums, your sweet little queen is pleased to announce that it's that time of month again!
...No, not that
time of month; I mean it's the time of month when we present the AGEod History Quiz!
Wouldn't it be great, to be among the very first men
to receive AGEod's exciting new game of Roman civil wars, absolutely free?! Here's your chance!
The winner will receive his choice of any AGEod game, and I'll bet that a bunch
of you want ALEA JACTA EST
! Or perhaps there's another AGEod game that you've been considering buying. It can be yours, if you win this month's contest!
Just as with our last quiz, there are six questions. Each question is worth one point. In the event that the highest scoring contestants are tied, the tie-breaker questions will be used to determine the winner. The tie-breaker questions are only
used when two or more of the highest scoring contestants have correctly answered the same number of primary questions.
This month, we've added another
way for you to earn points! With this month's quiz, the date that you submit your quiz will affect your points. The earlier that you submit your entry, the more bonus points
you'll receive! To be eligible to receive bonus points, you only need to correctly answer one primary question. Your bonus points are easy to calculate: subtract the date that you submit your final entry from the date of the last day of the month, and divide by ten. So, for example, if you submit your final entry on the 11th, you'll receive two full bonus points! On the other hand, he who waits until the final day of the month won't receive any
Notice that I wrote "...submit your final
entry". That's right: if you change your mind about one of your answers after you've submitted your quiz response, you can simply resubmit your quiz! Your bonus points will be recalculated to reflect the date that your revised entry is received, and your previous entries will be discarded.
Some of the questions might be a bit daunting to some of you, and that's why we've added hints
for this month's quiz! If you're utterly perplexed by one of the questions, you may ask for a hint. Each hint that you receive costs a half point.
This adds a bit of strategy to the quiz!
Do you ask for a hint to a perplexing question so that you can submit your quiz earlier, and gain more bonus points? Or do you dig in, and trust that you'll find the answer soon enough to gain a tactical victory over those who chose to take a hint?
Whatever strategy you choose, you'll need to submit your response and hint requests to [email="AGEodContest@gmail.com"]AGEodContest@gmail.com[/email].
You'll receive a number of points equal to the number of primary questions that you correctly answer. If you answer at least one of the primary questions correctly, you'll receive bonus points based upon the date that your entry is received. Finalists will be those contestants who have answered the most primary questions correctly. Tie-breaker questions will only be used to break ties. You may ask for hints, but each hint costs a half point. You may submit multiple contest entries, but only one will be eligible for the free game, and your bonus points will be calculated from the date of your last entry. Previous entries will be deleted.
Gentlemen, good luck!
The die is cast! To those about to contest, your sweet little queen salutes you!
