Tough one, huh? :lol: It turns out the answer was D: Titanium fangs, so only TBK got that one.

I'm actually going to reveal the answer to today's question tomorrow, so I can focus on getting the rules for the first tourney ironed out.  And here it is:

A: Iron
B: Oxygen
C: Carbon
D: Hydrogen

Hmm, yet another tough one.  I think I can rule out at least one answer, but I'm torn amongst the other three. :?

I'll go with B.

I promise that not ALL the questions in the actual thing will be this tricky. :P The answer was B, believe it or not (seriously, I would never have guessed that myself).


Anywho, I'm going to try and give the actual tourney a test run; hopefully all the kinks will be worked out after this first game.  But right now, the rules would work like this:

- Basically, I'll pick one Round 1 question from each show for the next two weeks, and these will be the ten questions that make up the participants' Round 1.  The point values for the questions are $100; $500; $1000; $2000; $3000; $5000; $7000; $10,000; $15,000 and $25,000; and all ten will be arranged in a random order.  The value of a question will only be revealed along with the answer, the day after it is asked.

- Get each Round 1 question right, and you add the score to your bank.  If you miss a question at any point in Round 1, your game will end and your final score will be $1000.  You could also walk with half of your bank at any point during the round.

- The lifelines do follow the show, so everyone will start out on Monday with all three.  As always, this includes one Ask the Audience.  I'll use the actual poll results from the show where applicable, or otherwise fill in the numbers myself; the poll results will be PM'd to anybody who uses this lifeline in the main game thread.  Players are also given two Jump the Question lifelines.  With either of these, you can bypass a question without having to answer it, but you cannot collect any points from it either.

- Anyone who makes it through Round 1 (the last question being on Friday the week after the game begins) will get a chance to look at Round 2 questions the following day.  These are worth $100,000; $250,000; $500,000 and $1 million in order; and each will be progressively harder than the last.  In Round 2, you may leave with the entire bank if you choose not to answer a question; answering a question correctly increases your bank to the value of that question, but getting a question wrong means your game will end with a score of $25,000.

- The only players to be allowed in on a game are the ones that post here saying they're interested before Monday, when I give the first question.  I may just change this later on so anyone who attempts to answer the first question will be involved if that's easier, but once you're in, please try to answer every day. ^^;

Oh, and with the moon surface question, the thing is that the moon surface doesn't have oxygen per se, but it's composed mostly of oxide compounds, predominantly SiO2 and Al2O3.

Well, I'm brilliant. :lol: I actually forgot about today's episode, so as a last resort, I'm just going to pick a question from an episode I have recorded.

So, once again, the players for this first game are the following:
The Headless King: $0 in bank; all three lifelines remaining
PurpleParrot319: $0 in bank; all three lifelines remaining
Purple Parrots Fan: $0 in bank; all three lifelines remaining
The Silver Monkey: $0 in bank; all three lifelines remaining
The Bandit King: $0 in bank; all three lifelines remaining

Here's the first question for the five of you:

Quote
Because she held over forty different patents, inventor Beulah Louise Henry was popularly known by what nickname?

A: Lady Edison
B: Lady Shakespeare
C: Lady Rockefeller
D: Lady Darwin
