Get your Star Wars trivia caps on - the game starts this week!  I will be posting the first question tomorrow night, and will give 48 hours for people to pm me there responses before advancing to question 2 with all those who answered correctly advancing, and those who answered incorrectly eliminated.

The prizes (in no particular order) are as follows:

1) Demise of Grievous Target Exclusive figure and Silver Boba Fett 2003 convention exclusive

2) Celebration IV exclusive R2-D2 and C-3P0 McQuarrie concept figures

3) Star Wars boxed set on Blu-Ray

The prizes are courtesy of Sanjai (Ambasah) and myself.  The winner gets to pick which prize he want, then second place picks among the two that are left, and third place gets whatever is left over.

Good Luck!

OK, here is question number 1.  And before I ask it, please review the rules by clicking here.

To make sure things go relatively smoothly, we will start with an easy one.  Remember, send me a private message with your answer (if you don't already know, you can just click on my name, and there will be an option at the left of the screen saying "send personal message").  So here we go:

Question 1: Luke Skywalker's father was...

Answers:
Light Side - A Navigator on a Spice freighter
Dark Side - a Jedi Knight

No, it is not a trick question, and answer factually, not based on a "certain point of view" or anything.  All of the answers will have one factual answer, so don't worry about trick questions.  If you really feel that any question is not fair, pm me and explain why.

You have 48 hours to send in your answers... :artoo:

OK, 7/10 have answered so far...still waiting on the other three.  As I am out of town for the next 48 hours anyway, I am going to give 48 more hours for this question.  After this, I will be more strict with the times.  Friday night, I will post question 2, and only those who have answered question one correctly will be moving on.

OK, so the following troopers have sent answers and move on to question #2:
Wedge1021
Sinkie
Darth Mink
Darthpaul
fishfan
Mit_Othy
cmkjmacd
Darth McAdam
Master Yreva
Northern Solo

Also, there are two who originally entered and never sent in an answer - Jedi Burrick and Radiation74.  I will allow them to move on, as it was a gimme question anyway.

I will note, however, that there was at least one trooper who never actually picked "Light Side" or "Dark Side", but simply rambled on about how Obi-Wan said he was a navigator on a spice freighter, but he was also a Jedi knight.  For any future questions, I will count such an answer as WRONG.  I don't want answers in essay form.  This is a multiple choice format.  Fell free to give an explanation AFTER your multiple choice selection, but there MUST BE a selection out of the two choices.

Question 2:
What “Whose line is it, anyways” star voiced Beed, one of the two headed announcers at the Mos Espa podrace?
L-Greg Proops
D-Drew Carey

Remember, don't post the answer, just pm me.  And don't look it up on the internet or anywhere - just answer what you know or guess.

so, its going to boil down to a who is the last to answer incorrectly.... this could go on forever.
You're welcome to drop out :winking0071:

We only have to get it down to 3, not to one.  I think it would work quickly if people would not look up answers.  I will try to ask questions that would be hard to do a google search for.

I am going to start posting new questions every night to speed this along, so people are going to have to check every night.  I will post the next question now - since this is a slight change, I will allow Northern Solo (who is the only one so far who has not posted for question 4) to send me answers for both questions before I post question 6 tomorrow.

By the way, everyone who answered Question 4 got it right, so you all move on to question 5.  Post your answers by tomorrow night.

OK, the people who have correctly answered question 5 are:
Wedge 1021
Radiation74
Fishfan
Mit_Othy
Darth MacAdam
Master Yreva

You all move on to Question 6.  Darth Mink can answer 5 and 6 as well, as I didn't get his answer.  This is the last chance for one like that,l though.  From now on, get it in within the 24 hour deadline.

I am going to use Rad's suggestion of no multiple choices on this one - just pm me your answer.

Alright, we have cut the field down to 5.  Once we get down to 3 (or less), the 1st round is over, and we move on to round 2.  If only one person gets the question right in round 1, they win, and we will continue to figure out who gets 2nd and 3rd out of the others.

The five remaining are:
Wedge 1021
Radiation74
Fishfan
Mit_Othy
Darth MacAdam

Stay tuned for question 7
