MarriProm Jeopardy!

Hey, there! Welcome to MarriProm Jeopardy, the official trivia contest of this year's MarriProm! I'm your host, Resolute!

In this event, you and your prom buddy will be tested in a variety of Pokémon and forum-related trivia, all in a nifty Jeopardy-style game show! Are you ready to show the forums your supercomputer-level trivia skills? Or are you going to break down and combust like a Samsung phone battery?




Rules of the Contest:

- Couples will play the game in a live chat (text or voice, depending on the situation) with the host and one other couple.
- Questions will be presented on a board that looks something like this:

Sinnoh Refuge: $100 $300 $500
Abilities: $100 $300 $500
Forum Trivia: $100 $300 $500
Flags of the World: $100 $300 $500

- Couples will each take turns picking questions off of the board. A correct answer awards them the dollar value associated with the question. A wrong answer results in a dead question and the turn passes.
- Couples have 60 seconds to confer with each other by text, or 30 if in chat. Don't use outside sources like search engines or reference materials; this is intended to test your knowledge, not your searching skills.

Varies, my work schedule is different by the day but I don't know what she has. I'm sure there's something me and her can get settled on.

Thanks!

Evenings-nights only, but not every one - this depends heavily on whether Lazuli is working late or not.

I have a few questions about this event since the first post is pretty bare-bones:

1. Obviously, the higher score wins, but is there a penalty for answering incorrectly just like the real game?
2. Is there just one board of questions per match?
3. Are teams playing just one match total or is there some sort of tournament where winners advance?
4. Will each match use a different set of questions or is there a chance they may be reused (in which case teams shouldn't openly discuss questions until the event is over)?
5. How will you be displaying and updating the question board as the game progresses?

@Bluejay No problem!

1. Nope! For the sake of simplicity, an incorrect answer means that the points just won't be earned. For example, if your team's score is $800 and you answer a $500 question incorrectly, you still have $800.

2. Correct. There's only one set of questions per match to help speed things along a bit.

3. Every team will play in one match. The two teams that score the highest between all of the games will move on to a special championship round. Sorry I didn't make this clearer in the OP. :/

4. Yeah, some of them will probably get reused. So definitely don't talk about the questions with other people until the game is over! I'm going add to add this to the OP so I make sure everyone sees it.

5. I'll basically just copy and paste a list over and over removing questions one by one. Think something like this:

Round 1:

Sinnoh Refuge: $100 $300 $500
Abilities: $100 $300 $500
Forum Trivia: $100 $300 $500
Flags of the World: $100 $300 $500

Round 2:

Sinnoh Refuge: $100 $300
Abilities: $100 $300 $500
Forum Trivia: $100 $300 $500
Flags of the World: $100 $300 $500

Round 3:

Sinnoh Refuge: $100 $300
Abilities: $100 $300 $500
Forum Trivia: $100 $300 $500
Flags of the World: $100 $500

...and so on. A late game post would look something like this:


Sinnoh Refuge: $100 $300
Abilities: $300
Forum Trivia:
Flags of the World: $500
